February, while it can be a dreary and cold month, is also the month in which we celebrate love and romance. Valentine’s Day draws varied opinions, but I personally do enjoy the chocolate and the pink, regardless of romantic concerns. And otherwise, I’m a sucker for a good breezy love story every once in a while, so I thought I’d share a few today. We all need a relaxing, easy, warm-fuzzy kind of book on occasion, so here are a few good, curl-up-in-February recommendations for you.

Edenbrooke by Julianne Donaldson
This book satisfied the Anglophile in me and gave a great story on top of it. This is a light and charming love story with some mystery and a bit of danger thrown in. Marianne Daventry is a delightful heroine and you will fall in love with Philip Wyndham by the end. He’s quite an opaque hero at the start, but getting to know him is a breath of fresh air. I was simply tickled at the end of this book and wouldn’t hesitate to give it to a teenager. (Photo Credit: Amazon)

The Wedding Dress by Rachel Hauck
Charlotte Malone seemingly has it all – a charmed life in Birmingham, Alabama (points for me – Birmingham’s my hometown!) complete with her successful bridal shop and a handsome fiancĂ©. But her life takes a detour when she impulsively buys an old trunk at an auction and finds that it holds an antique wedding dress with a past full of detours of its own. Throughout the story, the reader sees the journey of the dress and the women who wore it, and it’s a journey of courage, love, and mystery intermingled. (Photo Credit: Amazon)

A Beauty So Rare by Tamera Alexander
Set in the wake of the Civil War, A Beauty So Rare centers on Eleanor Braddock, a headstrong but penniless woman forced upon the goodwill of her Aunt Adelicia Acklen after her brother’s death in the war and her father’s move to an institution. Adelicia is determined to find a proper husband for Eleanor, but Eleanor feels strongly called to help war widows and their children. Simultaneously, Marcus Geoffrey experiments in plant breeding in Adelicia’s greenhouse on his extended stay in America. Unbeknownst to Eleanor, he’s an Austrian archduke trying to find a way out of an arranged marriage. Both of these main characters are relatable, humorous, easy to root for, and will melt your heart by the end. (Photo Credit: Amazon)

Seaside Letters by Denise Hunter
The first in Denise Hunter’s Nantucket Love Stories collection (can each be read on their own), Seaside Letters, as well as the other Nantucket books, is the definition of a breezy Valentine’s read. A hurting woman named Sabrina is running from her past, determined to never risk loving again. But handsome Tucker McCabe, a regular visitor at the restaurant where she works, waits in quiet determination, slowly trying to draw her out and help her see what true forgiveness means. This might be my favorite of the Nantucket Love Stories. And for no extra charge, Sweetwater Gap, a separate novel by Denise Hunter, is also one of my favorites from her. Patience, forgiveness, and faithfulness are themes in all of the books of hers that I’ve read, but the stories are easy to follow and will warm your heart. (Photo Credit: Amazon)
