My Evil Valentine by Debra Webb

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Evil Has a Face by Debra Webb
A look back on when Jess Harris first learned that the Player, the serial killer she had been tracking for years as a FBI profiler, name was Eric Spears and his subsequent obsession with her after she confronts him. Lots a good background information on this series is given if you havent read the books.

Down & Dead in Even by Vicki Hinze
Caroline Easton has lived in an abusive marriage for 5 years. Her husband has tight control over everything in her life to the point she thinks there is no hope for her to every get away. After she wakes up from her latest beating she finally decides enough is enough and calls her twin sister in Dallas and by switching identities Caroline manages to get away. While in Dallas Caroline meets with what I will call an unground railroad of people who decide the best thing for her to do is to die and go to a place called Sampson Park that will protect her from the man who still wants her dead or alive even though she managed to divorce him. This is not a romance but shows us the journey of what one woman went through to get away from a monster and get her self-worth back and start a new life.

Black Roses by Rita Herron
Jude Johnson is a florist, 30 and single and Valentine’s Day is coming up. She’s lonely and just had to deal with a angry mother of the bride and is down in the dumps when she gets home and finds black roses on her door step. Her sexy next door neighbor Gordon is a cop and realizes she probably has a stalker. This was a very short suspense but it had a good twist in it that you didn’t see coming.

Elvis and the Deadly Love Letters (A Southern Cousins Mystery) by Peggy Webb
Plenty of laugh out loud moments in this one. When one of the Valentine cousins starts getting twisted love letters Callie and Lovie set out to find out who it is and stop them. Along the way they get the help from Callie’s crazy mother and her mom’s best friend. Elvis the dog gets plenty of page time too. This was a quick slapstick type read.

The Wrong Kind of Flame by V.R. Marks
Ross and Allie are having a Valentine’s Day wedding. Eva who Ross asked to be the best man has her hands full with her stressed out boss. In the midst of rehearsal dinners and bachelor/bachelorette parties an arsonist has come to town. Eve’s fiancé Deputy Carson Morris has a funny feeling he knows the arsonist and enlists Eve’s help to see if he is right. It was great seeing most of the RC Investigative team back and this was a great little mystery with plenty of the typical humor you’ve come to expect from V.R.

Death-Trap Date by Regan Black You really need to have read the previous books in this series to understand which I have not.
