Valentina by Cristina Hodgson ** Blog Tour Review & Giveaway **


Welcome to the first day of the blog tour to celebrate the launch of Cristina Hodgson's second Chantelle Rose novel, Valentina. There is also an International Giveaway to win a signed copy of Simply Anna. Details on how to enter are at the foot of this post.
 
Chantelle Rose is back. She has lived a fairytale. But will she ever get her Happy Ever After?


To find true happiness, she must discover who Robbie and Lionel really are. Their past holds the key to her future.


Her quest follows a trail that takes her to the depths of the Pampas lands of Argentina.


There, the beautiful Valentina awaits – and holds the key.


But who is Valentina? What is the mystery surrounding her?


And why is she so important to both Robbie and Lionel?


Will Chantelle discover the truth? And, more importantly, will she discover her destiny and the fidelity in her own heart?


My Thoughts

In Valentina, we learn more about Lionel and Robbie's past and how Chantelle is herself involved. Chantelle's situation becomes complicated and she realises her true feelings about the two men. Valentina's story is told in parallel to Chantelle's present day one and eventually the two story lines and characters collide. 

    Still escapist romance, I would say that I enjoyed Valentina more than the first in the series, A Little of Chantelle Rose. It has a strong story line with character based mysteries to unravel and you do root for Chantelle throughout. I appreciated the little touches of humour and the way that the writing style adapts when you go from past to present with Chantelle's dialogue much more salty and down to earth! I see that there is to be a third in the series, so we will see what Chantelle does next.

In short:  A blend of love stories thwarted by mystery and exotic locations to savour.
