Cupid's Way (2014)

As a favour to her boss, Evie Stone agrees to give a presentation for the firm of architects that she works for on her way to visit her grandparents. Delayed by bad weather, she has to stay overnight in the hotel and meets a handsome stranger, who appears to be an organiser of the event, for dinner. She and Michael hit it off immediately and Evie feels a fizz of hope. However the next morning they part company, much to Evie's disappointment. Evie's treasured grandparents live in Cupid's Way, a Victorian terrace surrounded by modern developments. It is prime new-build land and plans are afoot to demolish the terrace and build a new Health Centre, much needed for this newly developing community. Evie had been tasked with helping to save her grandparents' lifelong home. Image her surprise when the CEO of the company that's planning to demolish the terrace turns out to be her Michael. Daggers drawn, Evie sets out to fight for the community of Cupid's Way. This is a lovely story with a real feel-good factor. It is beautifully written with a wonderful cast of characters each with stories to tell. I really loved the resolution of the story. (JH)
