Feb Club Read: A Valentine Secret

March 09, 2017



Hello everyone ! February is over but love is still in the air. How did you celebrate Valentine's Day? We at #WYbclub celebrated love the regency style with a grand blog tour that lasted almost the whole of February with a readalong, blog hop, and a live author chat.

Thanks to author Emily Murdoch for letting us read her beautiful novella at the club and to all our bloggers who made this event a huge success with their serious participation. Before I tell you more about the tour, let's get to know the book and the author.

Title: A Valentine Secret
Author: Emily Murdoch
Genre: Regency Romance
Publisher: Endeavour Press
The course of true love never did run smooth…
Jonathan Brodie, the only son of Sir Roger and Lady Brodie, has lived in the village of Maplebridge his whole life.
Penelope, the daughter of the local florist, was adopted by the Baldwins when she was just a baby.
They could not be more different and yet, one blustery January morning, their paths collide in a chance encounter that is destined to change their lives forever.
Jonathan soon discovers that Penelope is far from the quiet wallflower that she first seems, but rather a beautiful rose just waiting for its chance to bloom. After spending more and more time together, it’s not long before their feelings for each other begin to blossom.
However, when Jonathan starts investigating Penelope’s past, in order to present her with the truth about her biological parents, his grand Valentines gesture threatens to destroy any hope of a future with the woman he has grown to love.
Penelope begins to doubt Jonathan’s motives.
Is he only concerned with placating his domineering father and convincing him that she is worthy of the Brodie name?
Despite his good intentions, will Jonathan’s Valentine Secret ruin everything?
Or are two people from opposite ends of society simply destined to remain poles apart forever?
A Valentine Secret is a charming regency romance novella about never giving up on true love.
