VALENTINE’S DAY DO OVER
The Wild Rose Press
Rating: 4 cups
Ivanna Valentine is having one of the worst days of her life. Her flight is unstable and two hours late, her rental car breaks down in the rain, and the hotel loses her reservation. At the ball, she hurts her ankle and is mugged. Boy, does she wish she could do this one over.
Rome Hartt is also having a winner of a day; ending with his being covered in muddy water and forced to attend a masquerade on Valentine’s Day. That and dodging a lecherous female tow truck driver make him wish for a do over.
Eros and his mother the Goddess of Love are determined to get two stubborn mortals together, even if they have to replay Valentine’s Day over and over to do it.
This is a really funny story, slightly reminiscent of the movie Groundhog Day. Each rerun gets more and more outrageously funny, leaving the two would be lovers alone at midnight, only to start all over again the next day. The lottery ticket angle is also clever, if only the ticket did not disappear each morning. The characters names were also pretty funny; Ivanna, Candace, and Mia Valentine, and Roman and Racine Hartt. This story is a great way to get in the mood for Valentine’s Day.
