Book Review: Returning for Valentine’s by Victoria Pinder





Returning for Valentine’s by Victoria Pinder


A nice treat to read for Valentines or any day.

This is a quick, second chance at love story on the most romantic day of the year, Valentine’s Day. As with a lot of quick reads, you want more but Victoria Pinder did a very good job with this novella. It has friends to lovers, fears, distance, meddling mothers, and a HEA on Valentine’s day. Overall I liked the story and will check out her other books.

Nathan loves Beth, though he’s never believed she loved him. He left to get over her, and on Valentine’s Day he decided to risk everything, including his heart, and tell her.

Beth lost her heart to Nathan Sommers years ago. After a night at a friend’s wedding, he took off. She tried to move on, with a guy who she couldn’t love, but that didn’t work out. Now that it’s Valentine’s Day, she’s determined to go out and find her true love. Speed dating is better than no dating.

Why would Nathan show up now? Can she believe in love and happy ever after? And what will his mother do next to her if she lets him in?


Victoria Pinder grew up in Irish Catholic Boston before moving to the Miami sun. She’s worked in engineering, after passing many tests proving how easy Math came to her. Then hating her life at the age of twenty-four, she decided to go to law school. Four years later, after passing the bar and practicing very little, she realized that she hates the practice of law. She refused to one day turn 50 and realize she had nothing but her career and hours at a desk. After realizing she needed change, she became a high school teacher. Teaching is rewarding, but writing is a passion.

During all this time, she always wrote stories to entertain herself or calm down. Her parents are practical minded people demanding a job, and Victoria spent too many years living other people’s dreams, but when she sat down to see what skill she had that matched what she enjoyed doing, writing became so obvious. The middle school year book when someone wrote in it that one day she’d be a writer made sense when she turned thirty.She’s always been determined. She is amazing, adventurous and assured on a regular basis.

    1. I hope your baby feels better quickly. Being a new mom is stressful enough without them being sick. My oldest is 19 and her first year folder at the doctors was so thick from all my visits. Good luck and congratulations!
