Written in the Stars:
“Bellefleur has a droll, distinct voice, and her one-liners zing off the page, striking both the heart and funny bone. She has a gift for comedy, possessing more style and panache than a debut writer has any right to… There’s a sparkling quality here, one that mirrors the starry title. Bellefleur writes as if she’s captured fairy lights in a mason jar, twinkly and lovely within something solid yet fragile.” — Entertainment Weekly (Best Romances of November)
“If you love the fake-dating trope, you won’t want to miss Written in the Stars.” — Bustle
“Bellefleur’s debut sprinkles amusing listicles throughout the text as Elle and Darcy cautiously move from uneasy allies to friends to something more. Well-developed leads, relatable conflicts, a strong supporting cast, and opposites-attract chemistry make for an engaging read. Fans of Alexis Hall’s Boyfriend Material and Talia Hibbert’s Take a Hint, Dani Brown will enjoy this Seattle-set love story that reads like a romantic holiday movie.” — Booklist
“A disastrous blind date kicks off Bellefleur’s excellent rom-com debut… Readers will be rapt by the sensuous love scenes once Darcy and Elle throw pretense aside… A moving subplot about Elle’s fight for her family’s acceptance rounds out the story, while astrology memes (“What brunch food are you based on your zodiac?”) and nods to Pride and Prejudice scattered throughout add texture. This is a delight.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
