Hating Valentine's Day - Red Dress Ink Author:Allison Rushby Roses are red — Violets are blue — I hate Valentine's Day. . . — Just like you. — One of the top wedding photographers in town, Liv Hetherington, steadfastly single, hates Valentine's Day. This year she's putting her foot down and has vowed there'll be do dinner party set-ups, speed-dating frenzies or any other form of acciden... more »tal dating organized by her father, flatmate or best friend.
What she hasn't counted on is that, this year, they've given up on her.
Liv's ecstatic, to say the least. Now she can concentrate on more important things like setting up her own studio and polishing off her Dickens collection. But are relationships really not for her? Drew, the new man in Liv's life, would beg to differ. As would Cupid, who's had enough of Liv being stubbornly single and sends the ghosts of Valentine's Day Past, Present and Yet-to-Come to teach her a lesson or two where love's concerned. . .
It's hard to hide yourself away on Valentine's Day if you are a wedding photographer. It's hard not to drive away the lovely man who seems to think you are special when your history with lovely men is so wretched. And it's hard to remember the truth about your relationships when you are indulging in misery.
Liv is an interesting character, there's so much more to her than the plastic heroines of the last few chick-lits I've read. And the book is really sweet and reasonably thoughtful. I enjoyed it.
