The Cupid Effect

By Dorothy Koomson

  • Paperback
  • £8.99

A funny, feel-good read about Ceri D'Altroy, a woman who has an extraordinary talent for matchmaking, with occasionally outrageous consequences...

There's something magical about Ceri D'Altroy...

After departing London to follow her heart's desire to become a psychology lecturer, Ceri D'Altroy vows to leave her matchmaking ways behind her for good. Unfortunately, all she seems to do is inspire the new people she meets to change their lives.

There's Ed, who's decided to declare his love to a woman who is way out of his league; Mel and Claudine, two long-term friends who are now tempted to start an illicit affair; and Gwen, the chain-smoking head of department who has a deep, dark secret she only wants to share with her new employee.

No one who comes into contact with Ceri is ever the same again. Could this unsuspecting woman be a modern-day Cupid?
