If you are looking for a cute, warm, fluffy read this Valentine’s Day, check out Valentine’s Day at Glosser’s by Robert Jeschonek. It’s like a Hallmark Channel movie in book form (and believe me, I’ve seen almost every Hallmark Channel movie).
The story is part of a series that revolves around the Glosser Brothers department store chain from western Pennsylvania. In this installment, the store is holding a Valentine’s poetry contest, which brings together the two store “mascots,” nicknamed Miss Gee Bee and Glossy, to act as judges. Their journey together to find the best writer takes them through several ice cream sundaes, a lot of bad poetry, and one important secret.
I actually listened to the audiobook version of this because the narrator is a relative of mine. I thought she did a great job, especially with the distinct voices of several minor characters. It was a great way to pass my commute, starting off my day with a smile. It’s a quick little story, so you could also read it in a evening curled up on the couch with some chocolate.
