Rcvd an ARC at no cost to authors..(netgalley) We met Bella in the first book, so I hope you have started from that book since the previous characters make an appearance. So thanks to her cousins connections Bella is able to go solo as an event coordinator but the first job she gets on her own isn't what she was hoping for, but then another opportunity arises and she is conflicted professionally and emotionally..It was ok, my favorite part was reading of the others..
4.5 Stars! Belinda Williams has authored another entertaining book with Heartstrings, a Christmas novella from her Hollywood Hearts series. It is a fun read, replete with an engaging plot, well-defined characters and a lighthearted romance. This story takes place in Hollywood, where the holiday parties are simply amazing. Arabella Valenti, or Bella to her friends and family, is on the cusp of being a successful party planner. Thanks to her cousin Ally, a very hot fashion designer, she gets her initial break in the event planning business. Her first client is Bennett Moss, a famous actor known for his wicked roles. Bennett hires Bella to plan a three person Christmas gathering for himself, his mom, and his ten-ear-old niece. Simultaneously and secretly, Bennett's mom has Bella plan a large holiday party, replete with Wonder Woman herself, Gal Gadot. Bella and Bennett share an immediate chemistry, which they explore in a heated pool on Christmas Eve. This is a quick read that I truly enjoyed. If you are in the mood for a holiday novella with a strong heroine and a kind hero, then spend sometime in Hollywood with Heartstrings. Complimentary copy provided by the publisher via NetGalley.
