Product Description

Book Description

Valentine's Day really does suck in this addictive romance from the fabulous Rachel Gibson

--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

Rachel Gibson lives in Idaho with her husband, three kids, two cats and a dog of mysterious origin. She began her fiction career at age 16, when she ran her car into the side of a hill, retrieved the bumper, and drove to a parking lot, where she strategically scattered the car's broken glass all about. She told her parents she'd been the victim of a hit and run and they believed her. She's been making up stories ever since, although she gets paid better for them nowadays.

I love Rahcel Gibson! I've bought everyone of her books and I've faithfully read them all as well. Her last book "Daisy" was sad and a HUGE letdown. "Trouble" though is a HUGE step back in the right direction. Not only do we get to re-visit Gospel but the characters both primary and secondary add color and life to a storyline that is far from new and fresh.
Rob Sutter was a DOG in the past. He was into women way too much. To the point of being a cheat but than he picks the wrong lady and all holy hannah breaks loose when she turns pyscho, stalker and shoots him not once but three times, effectivly ending his hockey career. Knowing that life as he knew it was over Rob heads to his mom to recover and put his life back together. He is successful in doing this in Gospel Idaho. He is on a ski vacation when he runs into Kate.
Now Kate has her own issues. She used to be a P.I. but her last case was the straw that broke the camels back so to speak. She needs to take a break and decides to leave Las Vegas and head to Gospel, Idaho to visit with her grandfather. Maybe, just maybe she will get some clarity. Of course first she has to get there and a stop at a hotel along the way leads to one embaressed incident that just so happens to take place on Valentine's Day and with Rob Sutter of all people. Thinking that she will never set eyes on the jerk again she makes her way to Gosepl and is trying to fit in when one day her grandfather calls her out of the backroom of the grocery store he owns to introduce her to...yup her worst nightmare. Yummy Rob Sutter. Now what's a girl to do? Well, Gospel is small and they are bound to run into each other a lot. So they really have no choice except to let nature take it's course....
Rob and Kate were alternatly obnoxious and fun protagonists. Rob is a jerk.

This is another great read by Rachel Gibson!

If you have read See Jane Score then you may remember Rob Sutter a hockey player this story is about him and what happens after he is forced to give up playing hockey. Rob is shot by a crazed fan after a one night stand which has made him wary of meeting new people so he moves to Gospel to open up a store. Rob is everything you want from a Rachel Gibson book and the steamy parts are exactly that. The only thing is Kate is not as interesting as she could be and although I read this book in one day while I was ill and really enjoyed it I did feel as though Rachel had rushed through it abit and made what could have been one of her bests just a good read not a great read.

If this is the first Rachel Gibson book please read others by her like Daisys back in town or see jane score as this is Rachel at her best.

This however is still a good read so enjoy!

Wow! This is my first Rachel Gibson book and I am now hastily ordering everything this woman has ever written....(i would go so far to say i'd even buy her shopping lists too if they are as fabulous as this novel...!)

Loved the small-town American setting, its exactly how I imagine it to be. Kate is a character you can easily identify with and Rob is rough around the edges but you get to glimpse a heart of gold every now and again which allows you to keep rooting for the couple and a happy ending. It is hot and steamy as well as romantic and sincere.

Just a teeeeeeeny criticism though (its so insignificant that it probably wouldn't wind anyone else up but me....) the word HUMMER is always written in CAPITALS which is UNNECESSARY and tremendously ANNOYING. I understand this is probably a TRADENAME thing, but it really GOT ON MY NERVES as I hate being SHOUTED AT in CAPITAL LETTERS.....just a small thing, but it irritated the hell out of me!!

Bring on the Gibson Back-Catalogue now!

This book has seriously put my Ice Queen status in danger!!
I found it a great fun and easy to read. The fact that it ended just how I wanted it to left me feeling thouroghly fufilled. Although some could say it was slighty rushed I was glad it was'nt dragged out along with my suspence.
The only problem now is i cant get my hands on another Rachel Gibson quick enough to see what it brings, although I think Ill be avoiding "Watch Jane Score" due to Rob Sutter appearing in this book previous to this one(I fear it would be like hearing about your boyfriends ex-girlfriends!!)

I'm a big Rachel Gibson fan and this is one of my favourites (the only one of her books I haven't enjoyed was 'I'm In No Mood for Love' because it seemed too trite and cliched). 'The Trouble with Valentine's Day' is typical of its candy floss genre: contemporary, small town USA romance between two strong characters who seem set to annoy the hell out of each other. However, it's the way Rachel Gibson writes that makes her novels stand out. I've read other 'chick lit' in the Little Black Dress series and none have grabbed me like Rachel Gibson and I usually dump the other authors before finishing. Meanwhile, Rachel Gibson's writing is very amusing, hot and touching, with vivid settings and imperfect characters, and I always want to reread her novels. I just wish her novels were longer! Oh well, I get my money's worth by rereading them several times (other favourites include 'Daisy's Back in Town' and 'See Jane Score'). And amazingly, her novels have made me go online to watch ice hockey - something I never thought I'd do. Finally, congrats to Little Black Dress for producing books with covers I'm not embarrassed to be seen reading (though I still get teased!).
