When two long-time friends, Lori and Andy, realize they each want more from their relationship but don't know how to make it known, one of them gets the idea to send secret gifts to reveal his true feelings. But problems abound when Lori thinks her admirer is someone else! It was fun to settle in with characters familiar from Ms. St. Amant's first book, Return to Love, but it can definitely be enjoyed as a stand alone. This is a perfect read for Valentine's Day and beyond, a book where chocolate, romance, and mishaps abound!
A VALENTINE'S WISH is the sequel to her book, RETURN TO LOVE,and I am wishing now that I had the chance to read that one! If it's anything like A VALENTINE'S WISH, it is EXCELLENT! In this book, Betsy brings together my 3 favorite things: chocolate, romance fiction and God. To me, that is a PERFECT combo! I absolutely loved this book. Betsy tells the story of two best friends who know they love each other but are afraid of telling the other. So when it comes time for Andy, the youth pastor, to have to find a wife, his first thought is of his best friend, Lori. He decides that a Secret Admirer approach is the best way to show her how he feels. That is just so adorably romantic! What will happen in the end, when Andy finds out that his best friend things someone else is her Secret Admirer? Will he get his Valentine's wish after all, or will he lose his best friend??? Hmmm...wouldn't you like to know! Grab a cup of coffee, some chocolate and copy of this wonderfully written and delciously romantic, God filled story that will have you laughing and praying and hoping by a talented young author who has just become one of my new favorites!It is a small Love Inspired book so it made for easy reading. I had it finished in just a few hours. It captured me from page one and held me til the very end. That's my idea of a 5 star perfect book. Thank you ,Betsy,for that! And don't miss Betsy's April release, RODEO SWEETHEART! I know I won't miss it!
When I started this book, I kept getting interrupted while reading the first 11 chapters. I was frustrated that I didn't have time to get lost in it. But then I came across this wonderful scene where our hero Andy and heroine Lori have a movie night and almost kiss. The romantic tension is palpable, and it's so sweet! After that, I locked myself in my room until I finished the book. I wasn't going to delay my enjoyment any more. This is a perfect read for Valentine's Day or any day you crave a little romance. While I really liked Betsy's first book from Love Inspired, Return to Love, I think A Valentine's Wish is even better! It's a classic love story of best friends with mixed signals. I highly recommend it!

Okay, then buy yourself a copy of Betsy St. Amants, A Valentines Wish, to discover the answers. You wont be sorry. Oh, and dont forget the chocolate.
A VALENTINE'S WISH tells the tale of Lori -- broke, unemployed and boyfriendless as V-Day approaches. It's Andy's story also, a youth pastor who's told by his church board that he'd better look for a wife toute suite because of another local youth pastor's scandalous contact with one of his young flock.How do they meet, you ask? Oh, don't worry, they're already best friends. Though for some couples this is an easy slide-in to True Love, for this pair it's anything but. Andy's gotten used to seeing Lori as a pal. Lori's accustomed to being the Invisible Woman as far as romance is concerned. These two have a bit of heavy sledding before arriving at Hearts and Flowers Bliss!Ms. St. Amant has crafted a tale that reads as slick and smooth as some of those chocolates her heroine's been consuming. (Though Lori does gain 4 lbs. during her work at a candy store, never a zit to be seen! It's not fair!) The book is a treat for the reader and will go down as easy as Cadbury's Royal Dark. Though I don't often buy Steeple Hill, this one is the exception sort of book that always catches me as a pleasant surprise.
