A respectable, middle-aged housewife. An ambitious young lawyer. A student burlesque dancer. Three women with nothing in common - except for the fact that someone has sent them a macabre Valentine's Day gift; a pig's heart pierced by an arrow.

Is this a case of serious harm intended? Or just a malicious prank? Detective Inspector Olbeck thinks there might be something more sinister behind it but his colleague Detective Sergeant Kate Redman is too busy mourning the departure of her partner Tin to New York to worry too much about the case. Until one of the women receives a death threat...

Valentine is a novella in the best-selling Kate Redman Mystery series by crime writer Celina Grace.

Praise for Celina Grace from Amazon and Goodreads reviewers:

"The gradual crescendo of action and pace remorselessly increases..."

"Love Kate. She is human, does not always make good choices just like us."

"At last, a mystery that delivers...I found this novel superb because I got all I needed to know and none of what I didn't."

"...a gripping detective story but the main character engages you, and as well as wanting to know how the mystery turns out you want to learn more about her too."

"...amazing book, read it front to back in one visit, could&ngrave;t help myself..."

"...the most enjoyable Kindle book I have so far read since the 'low cost electronic revolution' which has been sweeping my reading habits for the last couple of years! Thoroughly recommended."

"This was my introduction to the author, and I'm so glad I discovered the book. Well-written and a real page turner."

"I was awake till the early hours to finish it !! I really enjoyed it and the characters in it so I'm pleased I also have the sequel downloaded to read at some point. I know it should be great."

"Attention to detail and great character building coupled with a mystery that keeps you guessing are all the ingredients that make me keep reading till the early hours of the morning."

"Celina Grace has done it again, she compels you from page to page and chapter to chapter, a great, riveting read..."

"I found it difficult to put down and was completely distracted from all the other things I should have been doing with my time."

"This is a great series that I couldn't put down and grabbed the next book right away at 1 a.m. to keep reading."

Celina Grace was born sometime towards the end of the last century and wrote her first story, The Blue Ruby, at the age of seven.

She lives in the beautiful Georgian city of Bath in the UK.

I grab any Kate Redmond story I can get by Celina Grace. I wish this was an entire book as I had to keep putting it down to keep from finishing it. I also loved her Christmas short story. This was fun with Valentine's Day coming up and kept me guessing right up to when the truth started to dawn on Kate. Love these books and look forward to the next one! I highly recommend this author and any of her other books, which I have also read.
