    Pastels and Jingle Bells is book one in the Heavenly Bites series by Christine S Feldman and Elaina Lee I think this is probably the sweetest little novella I have ever read I was hooked after the first page Trish Ackerly owns a bakery with her friend and business partner Nadia Trish is also an artist and has uite a flair for painting Christmas scenes in the window And that’s what got the attention of Ian Rafferty when he stopped into the store to see if he could hire the artist to paint the windows of his home The problem is as soon as Trish saw Ian she remembered him and the memories were not good ones It seems as though Ian was uite the bully when they were kids and Trish the recipient of his attention So Trish decides to take the job to do Ian’s window but with the plan to instead use the opportunity to give him a piece of her mind She has a lot of pent up anger from the badgering he gave her and she wants to let him know But as soon as she arrives at his house and meets his little six year old daughter Kelsey everything changes And as she gets to know the now adult Ian and watches him and the way he is with his daughter well all thoughts of revenge go out the window I fell in love with little Kelsey She is hurting from the abandonment of her mother And it seems as though she would rather paint zombies on the window scene rather than snowmen so they compromise on a fantasy scene But there is to the little girl’s pain as well It seems as though she is also the recipient of some bullying in school But Trish does her best to win her over and these two together was so darn sweet Trish is falling for both Ian and his daughter but she needs to tell him the truth about who she is Will Ian still trust her or will he feel deceived? This is truly the most wonderful little Christmas story I felt myself sighing several times throughout Thank you so much to Christine Feldman for providing me with the opportunity to read this book I can’t wait to continue on with this series

    This is a really short introduction to a new series and I'm glad I picked it up I was hesitant at first because I'm not really a fan of the bumble girl trope and Trish has a lot of bumbles in the first couple of scenes Fortunately those end early and don't show up againAnd there are few things attractive than the protective father out of his depth and not afraid to ask for help So Ian was pretty full of win I loved the relationship progression and the role Ian's daughter Kelsey played in their connectionAnd while I was concerned about the eventual reveal that Trish remembered Ian from before it turned out well enough Though a bit manufactured Feldman puts enough depth there to make it feel authentic ish Indeed there were a couple of times where Feldman approached a scene mildly manufactured from romance tropes and invested them with just enough heart and originality for them to resonate to the story's benefit rather than detrimentWhich makes this a solid four stars The bumble girl start and few tropey bits prevent me from giving it the all out five star win but I'm still interested enough that I'll have my eye out for the next in the seriesA note about Chaste The relationship culminates pretty uickly but I think Feldman gives us enough to believe it'll work The single on page kiss is all we really needed to establish the solidity of the connection though so this worked out very well

    It's getting to be about the time of the year when Christmas stories come out I was excited to read this one because I really do love Christmas stories especially romantic onesTrish had a difficult childhood all because of a bully Ian Years later when their paths meet again she has the chance for revenge but can she do it? Trish has really done a lot for herself to get to the point she's at She's happy and successful and even though she holds a grudge she doesn't let that get in the way of her being a kind person I think her experiences really shaped who she grew up to be Ian's past has created the man he grew up to be as well I love the kind of father he is and I love how sweet he is I loved the part with PopsI think a lot of people can relate to this story Kids do dumb things especially when they don't know how to express their feelings I loved the heartwarming message that was given in this storyContent short sweet and cleanI received a copy in exchange for an honest review

    Oh my gosh This was the cutest and heartwarming story ever and so christmassy I'm really glad I got a chance to read it Again a huge thank you to Christine S Feldman the author of this lovely short storyWhen Trish Ackerly crosses paths with Ian Rafferty who used to be her childhood bully she decides to tell him exactly what she always had wanted to and finally get her revenge But things don't plan out as Trish wants when she learns Ian isn't the same guy he used to beThere aren't many novellas like this that are as great because usually they're not decently written or edited in a good way Pastels and Jingle Bells wasn't like that at all It was actually really well done Though this genre isn't my favorite ever every now and then I like reading stories like this especially one that was so sweet and funny I loved the main character Trish The things she did were so funny at times like hiding from Ian when he walks into the bakery she works in or trying to make Ian eat his heart out over her I also like the way she was with Ian's daughter Kelsey the way she pretty much dropped anything to make her happy and paint her windows Ian was also really really great I like the name Ian for male characters but this Ian was epsecially amazing The way he takes care of his little girl was so sweet I awww'ed a lot over him I also loved Trish's friend and co working Nadia I'm so glad the next story will be about her I can't wait to read itOverall this book was all possitive for me A cute and at times really funny story characters that I loved reading about great writing that never got boring and sweet romance What else can you want for Christmas?

    For a short story it told a really full story until the end then it felt very rushed Cute Christmas time story though I would've liked to have known a little about what happened in the end but it still ended in a hea

    5 Star Novella This was the first book I have read by Christine Feldman but it will not be my last Pastels and Jingel Bells is the first in the Heavenly Bites Novella Series I found this book to be a great uick read with many of the elements I love awkward good girl growing up into a confident attractive young woman cute bad boy transforming to sensitve good looking guy and great friends to help the heroine along the way Pop is the best While I rarely read novellas due to always wanting from the story I was pleased with the character development Feldman was able to achieve in only 40 pages During my read I found myself anxious to see what would happen next and I was pleased with the way everything gets wrapped up I didn't find the ending rushed or unbelievable and I felt good after reading it Looking forward to learning about Nadia in the second book
