First and foremost, it is very easy to get into story of Ellie and David. The plot is very sweet and charming, two pluses in my book as that is what I prefer to read.
Ellie is a widowed mother of a young girl who is trying to get back into the dating world. Unfortunately, the guy she’s seeing doesn’t come with that spark.
Enter kind, sweet, sexy David—the grandson of one of the residents of the senior center where Ellie works. David has moved to Ellie’s small town after his fiancé broke his heart. The only problem with him is he’s seeing someone else.
To get Ellie and David together, David’s grandmother forms “Cupid’s Angels” a group of seniors that create a wonderful cast of characters in this heart-warming story.
Each character was well developed and stayed true throughout the whole novel, while the plot was well paced. It was written well, with a lot of humor wrapped into the romance. I thoroughly enjoy this novel.
