Fourteen Days of Valentines by Charlee James
Northampton Hearts, Book 2
Tule, Inc (February 7, 2022
She’s looking for closure, but he wants an opening…
For three years, contractor Savannah Chapman has carried on her late fiancé’s tradition of anonymously donating toys and cards to the Caring Heart Kids’ Club during the two weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day. But knowing she needs to move forward with her life, she decides this will be her last year playing Cupid—until her identity is discovered by a volunteer. Suddenly he’s convincing her to honor a past contracting bid and tempting her to feel things she knows she shouldn’t.
Adam Kelly, a child psychiatrist and club volunteer, is an expert at helping others while always ignoring his own heart. But when he meets the beautiful and kind-hearted Savannah and learns what drives her, hurts from his own past resurface. He strikes a deal with Savannah: if she’ll complete the club’s much-needed expansion, he’ll take over her secret Valentine duties so she can move forward guilt-free.
Will the club be the glue Savannah and Adam can use to build a new life together, or will the past tear them apart?
This is a sweet romance centered around the Valentine holiday. It kept my attention and I was rooting for the couple. Trust is hard for both of them. The author gives us a good plot as the couple have to overcome the guilt and disappointment of previous relationships and move on despite their fears of the unknown. A bonus character for me is teenager Audrey whose outlook is changed for the better once she gets involved in activities. Enjoyable read.
