Overview

Welcome to Valentine Valley—where broken hearts come home to mend, and true love may lie just across the range . . .

Emily Murphy never thought she’d return to her mom’s rustic hometown in the Colorado Mountains. But after her marriage in San Francisco falls apart, leaving her penniless and heartsick, she returns to her old family home to find a new direction for her life. On her first night back, though, a steamy encounter with handsome rancher Nate Thalberg is not the fresh start she had in mind . . .

Nate has good reason not to trust the determined beauty who just waltzed into town—he’s no stranger to betrayal. Besides, she’s only there to sell her family’s old property and move back out. But as Nate and Emily begin working side-by-side to restore her time-worn building and old family secrets change Emily’s perception of herself, both are about to learn how difficult it is to hide from love in a place known far and wide for romance, family ties, and happily-ever-afters: a town called Valentine.

Meet the Author

Emma Cane grew up reading, and soon discovered that she liked to write passionate stories of teenagers in space. Her love of “passionate stories” has never gone away, although today she concentrates on the heartwarming characters of Valentine, Colorado, a small town of her own creation nestled in the Rocky Mountains. Now that her three children are grown, Emma loves spending time crocheting and singing (although not necessarily at the same time), and hiking and snowshoeing alongside her husband, Jim, and two rambunctious dogs, Apollo and Uma. Emma also writes USA Today bestselling novels under the name Gayle Callen.

    Sweet romance in a storybook town

    Emily has come to Valentine, Colorado to take ownership of a building her grandmother left her, and then sell it. Her marriage has ended in divorce, she has very little money, and she wants to go back to college and start her life over. She is definitely not looking for romance. Her welcome to Valentine is her car dying outside of a local bar.
    Nate lives on his family’s ranch in Valentine and is a compulsive protector. His need to manage everything ruined his first big romance and is causing his brother to worry about him. He’s not looking for romance either. He is in the bar trying to relax.
    Emily and Nate get into a conversation, have a few beers and end up playing a game of pool which ends up with them “playing” on the pool table. They break it up in time to prevent maximum humiliation and Nate gets Emily a room at his grandmother’s boarding house after they discover that the building Emily inherited has been trashed by the previous tenants.
    Emily has had a hard time with love and trust; her mother was interested in her new age shop and the men in her life instead of Emily. Her marriage ended in a particularly cruel way. The welcoming residents of Valentine try to pull her into the town life but she is convinced that her happiness lies back in San Francisco. Nate has a 10 date limit since his first bad love experience and finds himself attracted to Emily which causes him anxiety. They get closer as she works to renovate the damaged building she owns.
    This was a sweet romance set in a storybook town. There are no big highs or lows in Emily and Nate’s relationship but there is a lot of chemistry between them. Emily finds out some things about her mother that change her outlook on life in Valentine and Nate learns to let other people handle some of his burdens. The members of Nate’s family and Emily’s friends are all interesting characters that I would like to learn more about. I think most people would love to live in a town like Valentine. I don’t know if this is the start of a series, it seemed to me to set up some possible future books. If so, I would take a return trip.

    Great Story

    This was a pleasure to read... The story unfolds really well and has lots to keep you turning pages... Loved the dynamics of the relationships between the woman... Enjoyed the love story as it developed between Emily and Nate... The story beautifully combined the "old" with the "new" in the Colorado mountain town of Valentine... This is a story for every woman... Now reading book two in Emma Cane's new series... Recommend this book highly...

    wonderful series.

    this story starts the silver creek series. emily has gone through a divorce, and nate has good reason to mistrust females. emily is there in valentine valley only to fix up the property her mother left her and sell it and move on. nate offers to help her, he likes to help people, and as they work on the property, they realize that they care for each other. but what will emily do to support herself? will a bakery work? emily has learned she has a father somewhere and since her mother ran from valentine valley before emily was born, could her father be here? emma cane does emotions very well. not to be missed.

    I started this book looking for a light hearted contemporary read, and that is exactly what I got.  I enjoyed getting to know the town of Valentine along with some of the people that reside there.  I think this book set up the series perfectly for many more to come. I love the interaction with the characters and that nothing came easy for them, the HEA did happen, but they had to work for it. Great start.

    Since I have not read it yet, I am addressing the email from B&N stating "We Want Your Feedback! Review Your Purchase Now.
    Appearently B&N believes that they can command people and have no idea how rude this behavior is.
