***Thanks to NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an eARC of this book. The following review is my honest reflection on the text provided.
A quick read, I thoroughly enjoyed Village Fool. I’ve found holiday-themed books to be fairly contrived in the past and didn’t have high hopes for an April Fools Day-related novella. I am very happy to be wrong in this instance.
Sugary-sweet, in both the plot and the desserts, I enjoyed Owen and his clumsy flirting (and not-so-clumsy texting). The events played out believably and everyone’s reactions made sense, two things that rarely occur in holiday fiction, which has a minefield of predictable tropes. Owen’s group of friends is great and I loved their nerdy banter; I will definitely be looking into more of the Little Village novellas if I get to read more about them.
Moral of the story: friends should not have unsupervised access to your phone. Or maybe they should?
