““Vicki Hinze’s has created a story that is more than meeting the perfect someone and “living happily ever after”. My Imperfect Valentine is also about taking chances and living dreams.” –Bookcruiser
“A beautifully written romance story about believing in yourself and taking control of your own destiny. You won’t want to put this one down until you have read the whole story — you will become immersed in the story and find yourself encouraging the main character to believe in herself and do what she knows is right for her. You can’t go wrong with Vicki Hinze books – I highly recommend.” –Jo Anne Vincent
