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…
While this is the third novella in the Heavenly Bites Series, it is a stand alone story.
Playing Cupid could possibly be my favorite of the three books from the series. This story gives you not one but two romances. I think there’s something to be said about older individuals finding someone to share their lives with, after being without someone for so long. Watching Delia and Theodore date each other is truly sweet.
The relationship of Aimee, Delia’s granddaughter, and Doyle, Theodore’s nephew, is one that’s strained to say the least. As Aimee and Doyle watch their family member discover love and happiness, they realize that maybe, just maybe there is more to the other than meets the eye.
Playing Cupid is a sweet romance you are not going to want to end.
