Marrying Mr Valentine by Laura Barnard: Book Review.

If you enjoy the occasional romantic comedy such as ‘My Best Friend’s Wedding’ or the classic ‘Sleepless in Seattle’ (come on, you know it’s a classic), then ‘Marrying Mr Valentine’ by Laura Barnard will appeal to you. Laura’s make-you-smile style is mixed with more serious subjects to tell the story of Nadine’s journey to overcome previous heartache.

Page-turner-ability rating 5/5 stars

Three word review: I loved it!


I first started reading Laura’s books in 2016, I was researching self published authors before starting to publish my own writing. It’s not often that I go back to the same author as I am always looking for new reads, but Laura’s books have been a real treat amongst all the serious stuff I have to read for my degree.  It is well worth rooting through the lists of millions of books to find an author that you like reading. Mix it up, try different genres.

However, I have recently started a book that I could not finish reading I won’t name it, as I didn’t enjoy it (or finish it) I won’t be reviewing it. I’m just adding this on, so everyone knows I don’t gush at everything I read!

Happy reading, Samantha

Welcome! Thanks for visiting my author blog. I write every day, I read every day, so we most likely have lots in common! I currently have seven books available on Amazon '1962', 'Piccalilly' 'Quirky Tales to Make Your Day' and the Curmudgeon Avenue series. I live near Manchester UK with my fabulous husband and wonderful, gorgeous grownup daughter, two cats and one dog. I write three types of blog; 1) Fiction written by myself and accompanied by one of my suitable photos or sketches. 2) Ramblings and amusing observations on life. I do not tend to write about anything serious (but admire those that do). 3) NEW! Book reviews. Although my priority is completing my next novel, if I like something I will share it. If I don't have anything nice to say, however, I won't say anything at all. Please see 'contacts' on menu. Sharing is caring, and so is reciprocation!
