In Cupid, Texas, they say everyone has one true love. And if you write a letter to Cupid, you will get an answer in return…
Now, from New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde, read how the legend of Cupid began…all it took was one great love story!
Too bad for pretty young housemaid Millie Greenwood that her one true love is John Fant, the handsomest, wealthiest man in town. But in 1924, a maid—no matter how lovely—isn’t about to marry into the town’s foremost family, and John is on the verge of becoming betrothed to another. Everything seems hopeless until Millie writes a desperate letter to Cupid, and the most romantic legend of all is born…
This story takes us to Whistle Stop, Texas in the year 1924. It’s also told in the first person.
John Fant has come with some news about Millie Greenwood’s father. Millie appears to be older than her tender age. But at that point in time, children seemed to grow up faster than they do now. We get to see how different things are compared to how we live today.
Millie ends up working for the Fant family. This is a great way that Lori shows her readers how Millie comes into her own. Even though Love at First Sight comes out on May 28th and is listed as book one of the Cupid Texas series, if you want to start the series with the history of how everything started, I would start with this book first. It’s a sweet romance and a great way to start to the series.
I usually read the excerpts at the end of my books but if you want to be surprised by what you read in book one, you might want to go ahead and skip the excerpt. If you’re on the fence about it then go ahead and it should convince you that this series is worth reading. Lori also has an excerpt for book two, All Out of Love, coming out in June. This is a great series to heat up your summer and it’s vacation-worthy. (Reviewed by Lynn Reynolds from Romance Reader Enthusiast)
