Crazy Cupid Love

Amanda Heger. Sourcebooks Casablanca, $7.99 mass market (416p) ISBN 978-1-4926-7275-3

Heger (Semi-Scripted) opens the Let’s Get Mythical paranormal romance series with a delightful romp through Greek myth and lore as seen through the eyes of a young, insecure, and accident-prone Cupid, Eliza. As her 29th birthday rolls around, Eliza finds herself in Green Lea, Calif., once again out of work, out of prospects, and completely out of step with her family of Cupids. When her father has a heart attack and Eliza finds out that the family business is in dire straits, she has to put on her (metaphorical) big girl wings and help. This requires getting the Cupid license she failed to get years ago, and then finding a mentor outside the family. Naturally, the only mentor available is Jake, her childhood best friend and unrequited crush. Filled with comical happenstance, a hint of mystery, and chapters of groanworthy antics, this promises to be an opus for those who love (and love to hate) love.
