The author, Lori Soard, asked me to review the first chapter from Cupid's Quest, the first book in the Cupid's Crossing Series.
BLURB: The only life Gracie has ever known has been the nursing home and the residents who are like family to her. Now, she risks losing it all and her friends scattering to different homes if she can’t come up with the money to save the business.
Between caring for his ailing mother and running the family farm, Brandt is stretched thin. Too thin. When his mother begs him to enter a local scavenger hunt, win the prize money, and convert the farm into an orchard, he knows he can’t refuse her anything, so he reluctantly agrees.
While seeking clues to the scavenger hunt, Gracie and Brandt keep bumping into each other. Gracie’s always had a crush on him that keeps her from stringing two coherent words together. Brandt doesn’t understand why she dislikes him so much she won’t even talk to him. If the nursing home residents would settle down and stop getting into crazy shenanigans long enough, the two might figure out that they have more than a little in common.
COVER: What a pretty cover! The town that both main characters call home below and the two destined lovebirds together above. Nice color scheme and eye-catching.
FIRST CHAPTER: Gracie Resquire hears the announcement about the $20,000 grand prize the local radio station is offering to win a scavenger hunt and knows that money could be the answer to keeping her nursing home open.
In another part of town, Brandt Bentley and his mother hear the news. She's certain the money will help save the farm for Brandt and his future children.
KEEP READING: Definitely. I'm eager to see how the author is going to pull this one together without disappointing any fans. Who should get the money? Gracie and her residents at the nursing home or Brandt and his mother so the farm can be saved? The opening chapter sets up great cases for both needs.
Within paragraphs, Soard sets up the conflict for each main character and puts them on a collision course to meet. I can't wait to see what happens.

I read a copy of the first chapter from the author's website. This review contains my honest opinions, which I was not compensated for in any way.
