Grief pulls some families together and rips others—like the Hollands—apart. Two years have passed since Alys and Fletcher Holland lost two of their children in a fatal accident. But time has done nothing for Alys’ broken heart.

Her surviving son’s destination wedding means a reunion for Alys and Fletch, who divorced shortly after the accident. Alys intends to keep to herself for the wedding festivities and hustle back home to her quiet, sterile life when the big day is over. 

When the double-booked Valentine Suite at the Kahalina Resort puts Alys and Fletch in close quarters, Alys soon finds it’s difficult to ignore the man she fell in love with over twenty-five years ago. Fletch frustrates her, but he protects her, too, acting as a buffer between her and the rest of his family and their son’s wedding guests. 

Will their stay in the Valentine Suite drive them further apart and send them home as strangers or will their time together in the suite mend their broken hearts and put their family back together?

⚡️Trigger Warning⚡️

This book contains death of children/teenagers and thoughts of suicide.


I don’t know what I was expecting when I started The Valentine Suite by Tracy Broemmer, but it certainly wasn’t what I expected, so if you are expecting a fluffy, second chance love book, this is not the book for you, but if you are looking for a gritty, warts and all book, then welcome.


There are several characters in this book, but the one the book is set around is Alys Holland. Mother to 3 grown children, but because of a devastating accident, 2 of her beloved children are lost to her, lost in her guilt and grief, she runs away from everything. But that was 2 years ago and now on the eve of her sons wedding, Alys is faced with everything she ran away from, including her ex-husband Fletcher.


The Valentine’s Suite is a well written book, with great characters, there are slow parts and parts that’s suck the breath from you. I will say I’m not a big fan of flash backs, but I don’t think that the book could have been written in any other way. But by the end of the book you are left reeled with hope! Not just hope for Alys but hope for them all.


I give The Valentine Suite 4 stars.

Tracy Broemmer is the author of the women’s fiction series, the Williams Legacy, and several stand-alone women’s fiction novels. She has recently dabbled in contemporary romance, as well.
