Cupidity - Holly Hepburn
Cupidity by Holly Hepburn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
What if Cupid fell out of love with love?
Cupid is exhausted. Modern day matchmaking is tough – people are busy, their hearts are harder to hit and he’s had enough of wall-to-wall romance. And St Valentine has noticed…
Annelise is a Lost Cause. She runs a dating agency but her heart is colder than a penguin’s feet. She thinks love is about compatibility and has no time for passion.
Can Cupid prove to St Valentine that he hasn’t lost his touch by melting Annelise’s heart? Or is it curtains for Cupid?
This is a short story and it could easily be finished in one sitting, however for a few nights I took pleasure in reading a few pages or so, under the duvet with a mug of tea.
I downloaded this ebook due to the blurb, it sounded intriguing and not like something I had read before, and this was everything that the blurb promised.
The story started straight away without having to get going - set up in the clouds with cupidity. He was sent on a mission on Earth to a lost cause.
The character of Annelise was developed well and another it's only a short story her personality changes in it and you warm to her. To begin with you get the impression she is a busy hard business woman, but she softens as the story progresses.
I felt the story is a little predictable, however it is a light hearted feel good read.
The story has been left open for an opportunity to return and I would be interested to see if Holly Hepburn does a sequel.
Holly Hepburn I feel is a chick lit author to watch.
