Christy Barrit Tells All for Valentine’s Day

What Would My Characters Do for Valentine’s Day?

Christy Barrit is visiting to day, answering the Valentine’s Day question.

So Christiy tell us,, what would your characters do?

Looking for ideas for what to do on Valentine’s? I was thinking about the characters from some of my books, wondering what they would do for this day of love. I thought maybe their ideas would give you some ideas!


Elle and Denton (Key Witness): Senator’s daughter Elle Philips and former Navy SEAL Mark Denton would go skiing for the weekend but wouldn’t spend all of their time on the slopes. Instead, they’d drink lots of hot chocolate and warm up by the fire in the lodge. Denton will suggest that they crash craft time, where there will be lots of laughs by all as they make a macramé owl.


Jack and Rachel (The Last Target): Since Jack runs a paramilitary contracting firm and Rachel runs a nonprofit to help the military overseas, their schedules are busy. They enjoy a slower pace when they have time alone. With Rachel’s son Aidan at a friend’s house, they’d order take out, play Scrabble, and relax with Rachel’s favorite movie (The Princess Bride, of course!).


Nick and Molly (Ricochet): This outdoorsy couple who run a Christian camp would roast marshmallows around the campfire. But they would—I repeat, would NOT—tell any scary campfire stories! Too many bad memories!


Gabby and Riley (The Squeaky Clean series, including Hazardous Duty, Suspicious Minds, and Organized Grime): It doesn’t matter what they do to start the evening—dinner, a movie, a stroll through downtown Norfolk, VA—it will most definitely end with crime-scene cleaner Gabby St. Claire sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong and somehow getting caught up in a murder investigation. That’s just the way she rolls. Thankfully Riley is there to reel her in.


Kylie and Nate (Keeping Guard): Chef Kylie and former Coastie Nate would cook together, with Kylie trying a new recipe that they might possibly try at their restaurant, The Revolutionary Grill, one day!


Brody and Madison (Race Against Time): Madison Jacobs decides she wants to search for heart-shaped objects (such as tree limbs that curve together to form the shape) for a new photo collection she’s putting together. Former New York City Detective Brody Philips tags along for the trip along the shores of the Chesapeake Bay. They stop by their favorite seafood restaurant while they’re out.


Tara and Cooper (The Good Girl) (releasing in March): These two would be busy hosting a Valentine’s Banquet for the Homeless at their church. Afterward, they’d get coffee, where their friend Candy would spontaneously show up to crash their date.


About Christy:


Christy Barritt is an author, freelance writer and speaker who lives in Virginia. She’s married to her Prince Charming, a man who thinks she’s hilarious—but only when she’s not trying to be. Christy’s a self-proclaimed klutz, an avid music lover who’s known for spontaneously bursting into song, and a road trip aficionado. She’s only won one contest in her life—and her prize was kissing a pig (okay, okay… actually she did win the Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Suspense and Mystery for her book Suspicious Minds also). Her current claim to fame is showing off her mother, who looks just like former First Lady Barbara Bush.

When she’s not working or spending time with her family, she enjoys singing, playing the guitar, and exploring small, unsuspecting towns where people have no idea how accident prone she is.
