Review: Right Under Your Nose by Holly Tierney-Bedord


Right Under Your Nose by Holly Tierney-Bedord

A Christmas Story

Genre: Chick lit

Age category: Adult

Release Date: November 13, 2015


“He was exactly what she’d always wanted, yet she hadn’t realized it.”

Right Under Your Nose is a fun, fulfilling novella. While I didn’t absolutely love the lead female character, Ariadne, I thought she acted like a bratty high schooler instead of the successful 26-year-old that she is, she grew on me and by the end of the story I was rooting for her.  I absolutely loved the banter between Ariadne and her mother and the bickering between Ariadne and Jess. I detested Jess’s girlfriend, Laurel, which is what the story should have me do.  I enjoyed the magical aspect of the book store owner. Overall the book was entertaining as two childhood best friends grow up, have relationships with others, then one day realize that they belong together. This is a nice, quick, Christmas read. Bonus: recipes included at the end!


This is a novella length book.

Ariadne Daniels seems to have it all: A successful career as a pastry chef, a Victorian home in a trendy neighborhood, and her dedicated boyfriend Scott who she’s been with for years.

Her life is great until the day she stops by Scott’s apartment to surprise him and finds out that he’s not so dedicated to her after all. Shocked and too depressed to celebrate, she decides to skip Christmas. Her best friend Jess does his part to convince her otherwise, but Ariadne’s determined to wallow in her misery, at least until spring.

Life has other plans for her, however. Some helpful meddling from a new friend at a local bookstore, along with some questionable behavior on the part of Jess’s girlfriend, turn Ariadne’s ho-hum holiday plans on their head.
