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

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 ini

Heartstrings is technically a standalone novella but is also in part connected through the characters to Williams’ Hollywood Hearts series. The story follows Bella and her dreams of launching an event planning business. We've seen Bella pop up in Heartthrob as she supported Ally's story and seeing her with her own story is a nice circle back to the first story.

This is a charming Christmas novella that captures the holiday spirit with a touch of romance and a gradual friendship turn romance. Ther

Heartstrings is an intelligent, heart-warming, very contemporary romantic read, with scenes painted vividly and with characters you can believe in. Williams has a knack for getting you inside the heads—and hearts—of her characters, and this bite-sized book reveals to us the feisty but soft-centred Arabella (Bella) Valenti, a complex character who falls headlong into… (no, not just love, that would be too predictable!)… let’s call it a quandary. Bella is a bright and gorgeous young event planner ...more

What a great little Novella!!

We first met our leading lady, Arabella back in the first Hollywood Hearts book (Heartthrob), when she was a gutsy teenager, full of raw enthusiasm. This book is set a few years down the track and its clear from the outset that the girl has matured into a classy and more professional young women who's looking to make her mark on the world. While Bella has leveraged her cousin's success to develop her experience as an event coordinator, she's is now branching out on

Heartstrings is a novella in the Hollywood Hearts series by Belinda Williams. I have not read any of the other books in this series. This book is a quick read—I finished it in less than two hours. I didn’t develop an emotional connection to either the hero or the heroine. They seem rather unremarkable. Bella and Bennett meet when he hires her to plan a party for him. The emotional angst in the book is because Bella has competing interests in two parties she is being asked to plan. I just couldn’ ...more

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..

Quick. cute read, but Hollywood Glitz and Extravaganzas are not my catnip. Ok read but did not care enough about the characters to want to reread.

I've received a ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

A cute and short series that is definitely worth the read if you're looking for something quick and easy.

Characters are fun but I felt the pacing was really uneven and the conclusion unsatisfying.
