Review : The read was so/so ok. But i felt something was missing
Its hard to describe – it was like a real fine food missing on spices.
And somehow the whole story was missing some tension … Even the only exciting moment seemed to be far to relaxed

|A CHRISTMAS PARTY TO REMEMBER . . .
Arabella ‘Bella’ Valenti has big dreams for the future. Thanks to her fashion designer cousin, Ally, Bella has the right connections to become an event planner to the stars. She’s just secured her first job—planning a Christmas party for an actor notorious for playing the villain.
Bennett Moss is nothing like Bella expects. For a start, he’s super nice and the last thing she wants to do is crush on her first client. Not to mention his party isn’t exactly the dream job she’d hoped for . . .
Then Bella lands another event that is a dream job, but it also puts her in a very awkward position. If she holds both parties, there will be a conflict of interest and Bella could make or break her career before it’s even begun. Will she organize the event Bennett’s asked for or will she take a risk and throw a party to remember?
As a novella Heartstrings by Belinda Williams is significantly shorter than her previous books in the series – therefore the reader cannot expect the same character depth as her other books.
But surprisingly the characters work well even without that background- maybe because I know the series and read the other books? Not sure because as I read them I cannot “un – know” what I read #laughing – But maybe to be sure I would not recommend reading this book as a standalone.
Even though this novella has a Christmas setting it is not one of these typically oversweet holiday reads which is a fact I enjoyed very much and fits the series well.
I was confused by the Blurb with its mention of the “other event” but – it turns out to be a clever twist in the story.
The characters were interesting – funny enough I think it’s the first time I read a book that featured an actor that is notorious for playing the villains – very refreshing fact.
There is not much I can add when it comes to the story – because the Blurb already gives away what should be told – more and it would be too much.
