Valentine's at the Graff - Sinclair Jayne (book review)

Valentine's at the Graff is the fourth book in the Holiday at the Graff series of books by Sinclair Jayne. However, you do not need to have read the other books before this to read it as it a great stand alone novel, which makes you not want to put it down once you pick it up!

This book follows two protagonists; one is Miranda a woman who is opening her own shop and has been focusing on everyone else but herself for her whole life. The other is Witt; a doctor who has taken a residency for one month at his home town of Marietta and has been focusing on leaving as fast as he can. I loved this about the book as it showed both sides of the novel from both the male's perspective as well as the woman's.

As the book starts Miranda is only just about to open her store when Witt enters town who she has been in love with since she was in high school and twelve years later nothing has changed. However as the book carries on you see how they both gain feelings for each other as Miranda helps to look after Witt's cousin Petal when he is at work. As you see the beauty and romance come through for both characters you do start to see into both of their pasts and why they are both made into the way they are. Especially for Witt, this is a critical thing as you understand why he isn't interested in having friends and doesn't see himself as someone who Miranda could love.

This is a book I couldn't put down once I started it and constantly made me smile and look forward to what was going to happen next. I think this book would be a great read for anyone who likes romance books as it does make you smile and you don't need to read the rest of the series to read this one.

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8lDreq9le4 My Review: Wanting to watch a rom-com and having this on my Watch List on Netflix I couldn't resist but give this film a chance and see what I thought. Having liked Emma Roberts in everything I had seen her in previously as well I was excited to see if this was another film of hers in which I would enjoy.

Adoring the first film and having watched it a few days prior I was excited to see what happens in the second movie and if it would live up to first movie.

By also showing how Wi-fi became a part of the a
