Much as she loves her meddling matchmaker of a grandmother, free-spirited Aimee Beasley is tired of dodging the dull and downright tiresome dates the older woman keeps trying to arrange for her. So when she notices her beloved Gran preening in the presence of a distinguished elderly gentleman who’s been visiting their apartment building, Aimee is delighted at the prospect of turning the tables on her.
But her plans to match her grandmother up with the gentleman in time for Valentine’s Day hit a snag when Aimee realizes he’s the uncle of their downstairs neighbor, a stodgy thirty-something history professor named Doyle with whom she butts heads on a regular basis. She’ll need to find a way to make nice and enlist his help, or her plan to see her long-widowed Gran happily matched again will never work.
For Gran’s sake, she’s determined to find a way. In the process, she starts to realize that her cranky downstairs neighbor has a softer side she never suspected existed.
And when it comes to romantic heroes, history professors may not have gotten a fair shake…
Happy Valentines Day! I have the perfect book to tell you about today! Playing Cupid is a short, sweet, romantic novella that is sure to put a smile on your face. Christine Feldman's Heavenly Bites Series is so fun and I've loved all of them. I'm so happy she lets me read and review for her. I always look forward to reading her books.
I particularly love the main character's first name. It has a sort of awesomeness about it. . . haha This is actually the second book I've read this week with my name (spelled exactly right) in it. Cool beans.
This book is all about pre-judging people. Doyle and Aimee are experts at it. It's a shame, really. So much time wasted. But somehow Aimee and Doyle find their way through the muddled mess of judging someone wrongly. Aimee is spirited and loving. She has no problem going for what she wants. She knows how to live and love. She's fun and I loved her.
And then there was the sweet romance of Gran and Uncle. So, so sweet. It made me smile. So, all in all, a perfectly sweet, clean romance for the holiday of LOVE.
