About the Book:
Unless youth pastor Andy Stewart finds a suitable wife fast, he’ll lose his job. Yet the woman of his dreams is his best friend. And Lori Perkins is still smarting over a failed engagement, so he can’t just declare his love. His plan: he’ll be her secret admirer and woo her anonymously with flowers and chocolates. And then, when romance is on her mind, Andy will confess his Valentine’s wish—to spend his life with her. There’s just one little problem. Lori seems to think her secret admirer is someone else!

My Review:
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!
