Book reviews are subjective. I tend to rate books not according to how “perfect” they are, seem to be, or are said to be in general but rather to how perfect they are to me.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Certainly, all that borderline-stiff accountant Benji needs to amp up his social life and find a woman of his own are lessons from an outspoken, confident baker and dating expert like Nadia. But, certainly nothing Nadia teaches Benji would be an opening for anything romantic-like to happen between him and Nadia herself. Certainly not…
As the first book in this series by Christine S. Feldman is a Christmas novella, I’m sure Love Lessons can safely be called a New Year’s novella. There’s humor and quirkiness, smart romantic chemistry between the main players, and believable seriousness underlying Nadia’s central challenge. And two enthusiastic thumbs up from this bookworm for the idea of being able to “meet someone” in a bookstore!
Now, while Benji’s physical features are described well, if there are details in the book beyond the cover image to describe what Nadia physically looks like, I missed them. But as far as who these people are, the characters are nicely developed, and the pacing of the story is excellent.
A fun and even touching example of a holiday novella done well. Thorough enjoyment on my part!
Love Lessons is the second novella in the Heavenly Bites series. I’ve also read and reviewed Novella #3, Playing Cupid.
