Giveaway! How was your Valentine's Day?

By Sassy Cabot from the Read ’Em and Eat Mysteries by Terrie Farley Moran



So, did everyone have fun on Valentine’s Day? We had a party in the Read ’Em and Eat complete with heart shaped cupcakes and cranberry-lemonade juice. Members from all the book clubs were there and a battle broke out when Bridgy asked which novel the folks thought was the most romantic. Jocelyn Kendall announced there was no story every written more romantic than Romeo and Juliet, which prompted Augusta Maddox to shout, “Are you serious? How do you compare that spoiled baby Romeo to a real man like Mr. Darcy? For my money it is Pride and Prejudice all the way.” The tug of war began in earnest when the other adults jumped into the fray. But the teen club saved the day when its members stood united in favor of The Fault in Our Stars, out numbering the squabbling adults. Then we played party games and gave out prizes. And aren’t you glad we saved a prize for you?

  11. I was sick and 2 days later I was with it enough to realize that the bum (husband) didn't get me anything, didn't even wish me a Happy Valentine's Day. I did end up with some chocolates and an orchid. Thank you for this chance. pgenest57(at)aol(dot)com

  12. My husband and I don't really do much of anything for Valentine's day... Valentine's Day is a special day for me as it is my brother and sister in law's anniversary. They celebrated 43 years this year! Thanks for the chance!!

  21. Valentine's Day this year was just like any other day. Money is extremely tight so we didn't do anything, not even a card. Being married 34 years seems to have made the importance of this holiday to dim. robeader53(at)yahoo(dot)com

  24. Valentines Day was such fun as a child...a little touchy as a teenager, and for 45 years now I’ve been married to my best friend. We don’t usually do cards or special dinners...our oldest son always gives us all the gory basics of st. Valentine...and we just roll our eyes...lol. It seems as though all our children had wonderful celebrations with their spouses. This year I had to struggle into the vehicle...lol to go visit surgeon for my two week visit after a very difficult hip surgery...so I was just glad to get back home and get settled...we ate chineses takeout...and feel blessed to wake up everyday....
