Deadly Valentine by Jenna Harte ~Blog Tour~

Tess Madison walked away from her two-timing fiancé, a multi-million dollar trust fund and a cushy corporate law job to pursue the single life indulging in chocolate and fancy French underwear. But her newly reordered life comes unraveled when she reluctantly accepts an invitation to a dinner party and stumbles upon the host’s dead body. Now Tess is in the middle of a murder investigation pitting her wannabe-boyfriend police detective against Jack Valentine, a man from her past with blue-green eyes and sinful smile that causes her to rethink her self-imposed celibacy. Tess has many reasons to avoid Jack including the fact that he’s the prime suspect in murder. But Tess doesn’t believe Jack’s the murderer and with an honest attempt to keep her hormones in check, she agrees to represent him. With Jack’s help, she uncovers a 30-year-old secret someone is killing to keep hidden and discovers sensual delights that don’t include chocolate or French underwear. But when her professional and personal relationship with Jack threatens to ruin her career and end her life, Tess has to decide if Jack, is worth the risk.

~My Thoughts~

A major who killed who....but did they really kill them?
Well written characters the are entertaining and annoying fun.

Tess is beyond a hard core never going to love again character...at first I thought it was Jack that was the reason she left everything...Duh I was wrong!
I enjoyed the fact she had TWO guys pinning for her love....even if one was just the safe bet....

Jack's character is exactly what Brad said...the "Fairy tale"!
Hot and Rich....over all nice guy!

I totally could not believe how many twist and turns this book had the reader going on...I swear I thought I had the story figured out, Heck NO!
Wrong person....she just seems to have an eating disorder..seriously?!?

Over all totally hard to put down....cozy up next to a warm fire (lol) and read for the night.

~Special Guest Post From Jenna Harte~

10 Things You Didn't Know about Jenna Harte (But hopefully you'll find interesting).
1. Writing always terrified me, so I’m baffled to how I got here.
2. I first started writing fiction in sixth grade by making up stories about characters on my favorite television show. This is before the Internet or the term "fan fiction".
3. My favorite fiction involves mystery and romance, but I prefer a mystery with romance as opposed to a romance with mystery, if that makes any sense. In either case, there should be at least one hot love scene!
4. My favorite authors are J.D. Robb, Janet Evanovich, Sandra Brown and Carl Hiaasen. I also love Jane Austen, but tend to stay away from literature unless I know it will end well.
5. Both the "Valentine" and "Delecoeur" mysteries pay homage to one of my favorite movies, "The Thin Man" and to Nick and Nora Charles’ more modern day (if the 1980′s can be considered modern-day) counterparts, Jonathan and Jennifer Hart of Hart to Hart.
6. I have another series idea rattling around in my head that pays tribute to another favorite old movie, "Topper", which is about married ghosts.
7. I’m not as old as my love of old movies would suggest.
8. Like my character Tess, I love good chocolate and old R&B tunes. I’m still working on getting some Carine Gilson underwear to see if I’d love them as much as Tess does. A set can cost several hundred dollars, so I have to wait until more books sell.
9. I long for the day when Apple or Microsoft invents a doodad that I can plug into my head, preferably when I'm sleeping, that will download my stories to my computer. I do my best story writing when I sleep (and when I drive), but I can't remember the details the next morning.
10. Jenna Harte is not my real name. When I’m not making up stories that put happy couples into danger, I live in the “real world” using my “real name” working as a freelance writer and blogger.
