Another sweet romance with a bit of a mystery! Jill started My Sweet Valentine in a way I've never seen (or noticed) before and I really enjoyed it. She overlapped the end of Red Hot Christmas and the beginning of My Sweet Valentine but changed the point of view to the new couple. Very cool idea! I wonder if the rest of the series is this way too!
Sarah made me want to start baking again. I'm not creative enough to come up with amazing new desserts or the names so I won't be opening a bakery any time soon. Regardless, loved her! Great ambition in that one. Now for Allen. Yes please. He seems absolutely wonderful and I'm very happy he did not give up!

I received a complementary copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Sara moved back home to Pride, Oregon after leaving Seattle where she was being stalked. She is now living with her mother and sister. After working at someone else's bakery Sara now wants her own business so opens Sara's Nook. As soon as she came to town, she met Allen who is a retired Navy SEAL and is now running a Coast Guard resuce station in Pride. They are immediately attracted to each other but Sara wants to focus on her new business so she avoids Allen. On top of that, Sara's stalker has followed her to Pride so she really has a lot on her plate and no time for romance.
Sara was a wonderful character and I liked her a lot. She was strong and determined to make her business succeed, not letting her stalker win. I must admit that I love stories with men from the military and Allen was perfect for me. He was gorgeous, strong and tried to help Sara with her stalker problems.
I like the author's writing style. Pride is so well described that you can picture the town and the people who live there clearly. I loved the town of Pride and would like to live there. I would especially visit Sara's Nook!
I liked that My Sweet Valentine had both mystery and romance and I loved the ending. It left me smiling as I read the last sentence.

I received a copy from the author in exchange for my honest review, so here it is. This is the first in the Pride series for me and I don't know why I haven't visited there before now. Sara Lander has moved back to Pride to open a bakery. Where she meets Coast Guard instructor Allen Masters, a retired Navy Seal. There seems is sparks between them from the first touch. Sara doesn't want a relationship now, she wants to get her bakery opened. Allen has never had these feelings before. Each time the are together, the sparks grow bigger and bigger. But who is stalking Sara and broke into the bakery and caused major damage. The whole town comes out a shows her their support and offering help. Don't try to guess who is after Sara, because your guess will most likely be wrong. I thought I knew but was fooled a few times. Jill has a way with these stories that will keep you glued to your kindle and trying to figure out who done it! If you haven't read any of Jill's stories, I say pick one but read it and enjoy. I have read most in the Secrets series and only this one in the Pride series and I loved it. Thanks Jill for another great story!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

My Sweet Valentine by Jill Sanders (Pride Series)
I was given this BETA in exchange for my honest opinion.
I love the quiet little town of Pride.
Can I please move there?
The town has just become sweeter. Bring on the chocolate, there's a new bakery in town.
While little girls dream of growing up and starting a family, timing is everything. Sometimes good, sometimes bad, but sometimes you just have to make time, before it passes you by.
They were lonely until they found each other.
Sealed with a kiss.
Thanks to Ms. Jill for sending me back to Pride.

Just in time for Valentine's Day, come back to Pride and find the sweet tastes of a something new in your favorite book town.
Stop by the brand new bakery for some home-made treats and watch the sparks fly between it's owner and the new Coast Guard hunk in town.
You won't want to miss this sweet story...
