A Cupid Kind of Day, by L.A. Dale

Lily is so not into Valentine's Day this year.  Still nursing a broken heart from her last serious relationship, she would rather sit at home than be around mushy couples in love.  When her favorite pair of shoes lands her in front of a dreamy man, however, her prospects for the holiday begin to look up.

What an adorable little novella this is!  Most people have suffered through at least one Valentine's Day as a singleton, I know I have.  It can be depressing, and it does get a little obnoxious seeing your workmates with their flower deliveries and giant stuffed bears.  So, I really felt myself relating to Lily right from the start.  It is amazing how in so little time, the author is able to fully develop Lily as a character, including her backstory, and endear her to the readers.

The story is full of good old fashioned Hollywood style romance.  The plot of the story is as sweet as a box of chocolate and not nearly so hard on the hips.  I found myself really enchanted by both the story and the characters, despite the short length of the story; the writing is that engaging.  And the ending is simply adorable.

Now that I am married, romantic stories like this appeal to me so much more.  However, this story is perfect for people who find themselves single on Valentine's Day, because it gives them a shot of hope.  Well done.

I received a review copy of this book courtesy of the author in exchange for my honest review.
