Overview

At the Heavenly Bites Bakery, three very different women bake up delectable treats and find romance with some unexpected but equally delectable men--and just in time for the holidays!

Much as she loves her meddling matchmaker of a grandmother, free-spirited Aimee Beasley is tired of dodging the dull and downright tiresome dates the older woman keeps trying to arrange for her. So when she notices her beloved Gran preening in the presence of a distinguished elderly gentleman who's been visiting their apartment building, Aimee is delighted at the prospect of turning the tables on her.

But her plans to match her grandmother up with the gentleman in time for Valentine's Day hit a snag when Aimee realizes he's the uncle of their downstairs neighbor, a stodgy thirty-something history professor named Doyle with whom she butts heads on a regular basis. She'll need to find a way to make nice and enlist his help, or her plan to see her long-widowed Gran happily matched again will never work.

For Gran's sake, she's determined to find a way. In the process, she starts to realize that her cranky downstairs neighbor has a softer side she never suspected existed.

And when it comes to romantic heroes, history professors may not have gotten a fair shake...

    Playing Cupid is the third book in the Heavenly Bites novella se

    Playing Cupid is the third book in the Heavenly Bites novella series by Christine S. Feldman and Elaina Lee.

    It’s almost Valentine’s Day at the Heavenly Bites Bakery. Trish and Nadia both have someone special to spend it with but not Aimee, much to the dismay of her matchmaking Gram, Delia Beasley. Aimee has moved in with her Gram so that she could keep her independence but still be there if she was needed. But the most exciting thing Gram does, besides playing matchmaker, is to watch Wheel of Fortune with Aimee.

    Much to Aimee’s surprise, though, she discovers that her Gram might have a crush of her own. She catches her actually flirting with the elderly Theodore Berkley! Did she just see her Gram blush?! The problem is that Theodore is the Uncle of the very grumpy History Professor that lives down stairs, Doyle Berkley. When she sees how happy her Gram is with Theodore, though, Aimee is dedicated to helping them be together.

    What is it about Doyle? He aggravates her and intrigues her all at the same time. Aimee takes it upon herself to try to figure out what makes Professor Doyle Berkley tick. The deeper she looks, the more surprised she is to find out that there might be more to him than she thought.

    Will Gram and Theodore get a second chance for happiness? Will Aimee be able to break through that rock hard shell Doyle has built around himself? This is the final book in this novella series and it is just as sweet and entertaining as the first two. Gram and Theodore together were so endearing. I loved Aimee’s adventurous personality and how hard she worked on Doyle to break through his shell. All three books in this series were completely entertaining and I enjoyed them so very much. Again, thank you to Christine Feldman for giving me the opportunity to read them. I so very much appreciate it. If you want to smile, sigh, and just be thoroughly entertained, I highly recommend this series.

    The following review will be written for the entire Heavenly Bit

    The following review will be written for the entire Heavenly Bites Collection by Christine S. Feldman.

    Delightful, witty, cute, funny, engaging, well-written... did I say delightful? Yes, I did. I've fallen in love with Ian, Benji, and Doyle, and the trio of ladies who fall for them. I love the character of Gran as well; her "meddling" was spot on and reminded me of one of my great-grannies, whom I was lucky enough to know. I hope Ms. Feldman considers doing sequels for each story, as I would be interested in knowing what happens next in their lives. Oh, and I ADORED the fact one of the heroes was a history professor. He is a treasure, Ms. Feldman. Five stars for this entire series!

    Meddling matchmaker, Gran, keeps trying to set Aimee Beasley up

    Meddling matchmaker, Gran, keeps trying to set Aimee Beasley up on blind dates with everyone she knows that is single.   When Aimee sees her Gran catching the eye of the neighbor’s uncle, Theodore, she decides to step in and play matchmaker for her Gran.   Making her plans she realizes that she will have to have the help of her neighbor, Doyle, to make this work.   The problem?  Doyle is a thirty something professor who Aimee does not get along with.   For her Gran’s sake she is willing to put aside their differences and make nice with the neighbor. 




    My Review:




    This is book three of the Heavenly Bites Series, having read each one, I have to say this is my favorite.  As fun as it was watching Gran set up each of the girls with their perfect match, it was just as fun to see the tables turned on Gran and her set up.   Although I have to believe that Gran knew what Aimee was up to and it was all part of Gran’s big plan.  I am sure if I asked her she would tell me this.




    Christine S. Feldman writes novellas that manage to tell the whole story in very few pages, but enough pages that you get to sink your teeth into the story and care what is going on.   Playing Cupid is the perfect short story.  I got to connect with the characters and learn their backgrounds, without a lot of the other information that authors sometimes include that leave you feeling that they need to get on with the story.  




    If you are looking for a short story I highly recommend this one.  It can be read alone, although the whole series is really worth reading.

    Playing Cupid is sweet and adorable

    Reviewed by Kim
    fore Read Your Writes Book Reviews

    While this is the third novella in the Heavenly Bites Series, it is a stand alone story.

    Playing Cupid could possibly be my favorite of the three books from the series. This story gives you not one but two romances. I think there’s something to be said about older individuals finding someone to share their lives with, after being without someone for so long. Watching Delia and Theodore date each other is truly sweet.

    The relationship of Aimee, Delia’s granddaughter, and Doyle, Theodore’s nephew, is one that’s strained to say the least. As Aimee and Doyle watch their family member discover love and happiness, they realize that maybe, just maybe there is more to the other than meets the eye.

    Playing Cupid is a sweet romance you are not going to want to end.

    I don't read a lot of romance, hardly any actually. I enjoyed this story and highly recommend it. For me, there was just the right amount of 'romance' without getting too detailed. And oh, the humor. Awesome! I found myself laughing out loud several times. Well written, the story never lagged, holding my attention. Good flow and pace to a realistic, sweet story. I read it from start to finish in a couple of hours. Dialog from believable characters was cleverly crafted, allowing the reader into the hearts and minds of those characters. I picked this story up without having read the others. Now I plan on getting the first two, not because anything was missing, but because this was such an enjoyable read!
