What is reincarnation? It is the rebirth of a soul in a new body. Do you believe it is possible?
It is a common belief by some cultures that reincarnation is real. They believe soulmates will always find their way back to each other even after death. Midnight Valentine by J. T Gessinger explores this theory. I will not be going into details about this as I believe this is a story that readers should experience for themselves. Poignant and beautifully written, Midnight Valentine will have an impact, which will have you thinking on this story for many days to come. This is a powerful story of loss, grief, hope and most of all a love that is not only true but also eternal. When you find a love like this, letting go is the hardest thing to do.

Megan Dunn has been in a state of grief and unhappiness for five years, ever since the tragic loss of the love of her life. All their plans for their future coming to an abrupt end. Her life would never be the same.  To get a grip on her pain and to make sense of her despair she made a life changing decision, which involved relocating to a new town. Her plans to restore a rundown property she recently purchased was her strong motivator. However, on her arrival into Seaside, Oregon she encountered a hostile presence in the form of a brooding and moody but handsome stranger who seemed to hate her on sight. Therefore, you can imagine how surprised she was to discover he was the perfect candidate to do the renovations on her newly acquired asset. For Megan, Theo Valentine was not a man she wanted to do business with, but fate had other plans.

I love hanging out with Megan. Despite her sadness, she was no walkover. She was tough as nails and spirited. Her pain was real and I could relate to her grief and suffering. Listening to her speak was such fun.

“The other was from a guy who kept suggesting I’d be more comfortable having my husband deal with this kind of thing as if my vagina were a handicap to rational thinking,".

Theo is complex, and I understood Megan’s frustration in getting through to him. It was clear he had deep emotional and psychological issues. I would have love to be inside his head to see what made him tick. As the story was narrated from Megan’s POV, I never got to know Theo the way I would have loved to, as a result I never connected with him. It was not until the epilogue I got some semblance of his inner turmoil. Fortunately, this in no way prevented me from enjoying the story as Megan's narration allowed me to have an understanding of the events. 

Ms. Gessinger has a way with words. She knows how to seduce her readers into believing the impossible. She grabbed my attention from the start and I had a hard time letting this one go. I had to know how everything would unfold. This book took me on an unbelievable journey and demonstrated  the power of love and the possibility of second chances.

If you believe in the power of love then this story is for you. If you believe in a love that transcends time, then you need to read this book. Beautiful, heartbreaking and magical with a perfect ending.

True love never dies.
Megan and Cassidy were childhood sweethearts who thought they would be together forever. Fate had other plans. Soon after they were married, Cass’s life was tragically cut short. Still grieving her soul mate five years later, Megan moves to the small town of Seaside, Oregon, hoping to rebuild her life.
Her first night there, she meets the town recluse, Theo. Withdrawn, guarded, and mysteriously silent since a terrible accident left him scarred, Theo takes an instant and inexplicable dislike to Megan. But as their paths cross again and again, Megan becomes convinced there’s more to Theo than meets the eye.
When she discovers the reason for his silence, his nightmares, and especially his pointed dislike, Megan becomes convinced of something far more astonishing.
Is a second chance at a once-in-a-lifetime love possible, or is a broken heart the cruelest kind of liar?
