I <3 Valentine's Day and I am a sap for any Valentine related book, hence why I got this one. I thought it would be a nice break from my current tour of alpha billionaire led romance. I love a thriller and paired with a Valentine theme, I was hoping for some hot action (in and out of the bedroom), however the action was lukewarm at best. I didn't feel any chemistry between Tess and Jack. I felt like I never got to know Tess. Tess is supposedly an uptight lawyer who left her privileged ,moneyed world behind, but we don't know why. Jack is still intrigued, again why because she's about as warm as an icebox. They supposedly were once good friends but this is but a blip in the story.

The 'mystery" behind Jack's past is not really mysterious since it's pretty much spelled out for us half way though. The writing tense and tone also changed about half way as well. Tess is the protagonist until it abruptly changed from her to Jack. I love when authors give us different perspectives of the same event especially when we can get inside a guy's head, but in this case it just felt awkward.

I am thankful that the author gave us a complete, stand alone novel (no cliffhangers here), but it was just okay for me.

This is a great read! For anyone who gets tired of the same type of whiny heroine/love interest, this is a must read. Tess is awesomely real. I feel like I know her, but more importantly, I actually LIKE her! (Her love interest, Jack, isn't too bad, himself!)
Not only are the characters readable and believable, but the plot is intriguing and believable as well. This is a page turner that will keep you guessing until the last page.
I'm definitely looking forward to Book 2!

It’s the case of, “Whodunnit?”

Tess Madison thought she left her old life behind. She was content to devote herself to her law practice and a man wasn't necessary, until the dinner party at the Worthington mansion and the return of Jack Valentine. Tess was humiliated by Jack three years ago and she wants to crawl under a rock when she sees him again. Jack shouldn't be at the dinner party. Her old life wasn't supposed to meet her new life, but it does and the dinner party full of dysfunctional family members ends badly. Now Jack is the prime suspect in a murder. What do you do when a super-hot man who gets to you in a way no other can is being investigated for murder? You represent him of course!! This puts her at odds with the people in her new life, but Jack is innocent; at least she's pretty sure he's innocent and her hormones aren't messing with her judgment.

When I first started DEADLY VALENTINE I swore that I was transported back in time. Back when I played the board game "Clue." I mean the whole dinner party at the old mansion with the old rich guy and the butler, etc. The plot is right off the game and into a story. It does evolve into more, but it takes some time.

I would categorize DEADLY VALENTINE as a murder mystery with a romantic subplot. Most of the story revolves around the investigation into the murder that occurs at the Worthington mansion and subsequent events. I love mysteries, but DEADY VALENTINE had twists that I felt were too predictable and the storytelling was drawn out at times; mainly the first half. I did enjoy the long list of interesting secondary characters (My favorite is Cora.). So many people could have been the murderer and we learn about many of them, which make for a complex story.

TITLE - DEADLY VALENTINE
AUTHOR - JENNA HARTE
STARS - 5
REVIEWER - WENDE SHEETS

Tess Morgan was a lawyer from Washington. She moved to Jefferson Town, Virginia 3 years ago. She cut off the DC world, and stayed in her won protective bubble. Tess was trying to recover from heartbreak and betrayal. She had no trinkets or memento's from her DC life. What she wanted was to forget and never remember. At least that is the goal till Jack Valentine, an old friend shows up at a dinner party.

On a cold February night family an a few friends gathered at the home of Asa Worthington. What family thought was just a family gathering Jack Valentine, a lawyer from Washington was told it was business. When Asa shows up dead a few hours into the party, everyone is wondering WHO and WHY. Asa was not a well liked man, but with a house full of family who would hate him that bad to kill him?

Tess is soon hired by Jack, to his lawyer, when he soons become suspect number one. Once Tess and Jack start researching and interviewing family interesting things are turning up. Many skeletons are released from the closet.
No one really knows the reason behind Asa's dinner party that night, but what Tess discovers could explain the reason for his death.

Tess has had her guard up for 3 years, with Jack will she be able to let it down? Will she be able to protect her heart ? Representing Jack could destroy all she built up in the last 3 years. Time will only tell or maybe love will tell.

I fell in love the with characters from this novel. It was a book that was easy to follow and left you guessing clear up to the end. I am looking forward to book 2! There was just the right amount of romance and mystery!
