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: 4 of 5 stars

Besides, she didn’t read romance novels. They were unrealistic…
The only endings she believed in came from signing on the dotted line and depositing a commission check in her bank account.
Nicki’s career (and her life, she asserts) depends on landing a piece of property for a coffee shop parking lot. But a handsome and annoying man–Steven, is it?–who knows his way around his kitchen is bent on standing in Nikki’s way in No Time For Love by author Tina Radcliffe.
This story opens with an engaging sense of mystery. Not the darker kind of mystery, like a suspense novel or something, but the kind of setup that makes you pleasantly curious to figure out what exactly is going on. Both Steve’s and Nicki’s points of view kept me entertained, especially Nicki’s dry outlook at her humorous mishaps.
I eventually felt like I’d missed something rather big, though. As the story glides from a certain point to another, it seems as though a connecting chunk of development is left out of the romance. Hence, it’s like the finale that shows up belongs to a different story. It doesn’t feel altogether “earned” here.
Nevertheless, this quick and sweet stop was a nice break to take, and other readers of ChristFic romance should enjoy it.
