I enjoyed the way the author avoided cliché both in description and characterization. These are not people who you think they are, they are characters with their own story. This is a kind read that will take you away from the world news for awhile and leave you with a good feeling.
This story reminded me so much of the short feel good romances I used to read and miss. Thank you, Darlene Fredette.
This contemporary romance takes place in Halifax, Canada, which was an added bonus for this Canadian reader.
So just a short and sweet contemporary read, nothing to complain about but nothing to rave about either.
* I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from Netgalley. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.*
‘Nothing To Lose’ is the perfect example of a short novel that makes you feel good. Jessie is desperately looking for a new job since she has to pay her rent soon and doesn’t have any money to spend. So when Jessie sees a job opening for a new baker at a small bakery, she decides to apply for the job. But Jessie isn’t a baker and she doesn’t have any experience in baking whatsoever. But Jessie does have experience in working her but off, and she will do anything to get the job.
‘Nothing To Lose’ was a fun read. The writing is nice, but nothing fancy and the story definitely felt kind of rushed to me. Because the story is so short, it really felt like the two main characters Jesse and Travis met and had a relationship before you know it. But it was fun to read about Jessie and Travis. And I especially love stories involving bakeries. And the bakery in this book, sure feels like a nice, cozy and tasty bakery.
Overall everything in ‘Nothing To Lose’ was a little too cliché for my taste. But I enjoyed reading this book. It really was a perfect Sunday afternoon read.
Jessica Robinson (Jesse) had been running from her life for six years. She ran away from her parents, her boyfriend, her life. She rebelled and had hit rock bottom. With no job and dwindling money in her bank account, she interviewed for a job as a baker, which she was not. Surely it couldn't be that difficult, right? If she just exaggerated a little bit, the job could be hers. There was something about her that the owner, Heather, could see. She was the ONE. Her son, Travis, wasn't so convinced. Although, Jesse was a beautiful and there was a definite spark between them, he would not date an employee and he wasn't sure she would last anyway.
As Jesse became more comfortable with the bakery's routine, she began to show her creative talents. Travis and Heather were both impressed. She began to feel at ease and her life was getting back on track. But with a twist of fate, and a blast from her past, could her life continue down this wonderful path or would she have to run away again?
I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
