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.
“Well-written and tasteful”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Lucidity
Although I am more of a fan of romance books that have sensual, steamy scenes – I began to tire as of recently and wished to find a good old-fashioned, true and genuine romance read that doesn’t need to rely on such scenes to deliver a worthwhile read to fans of the romance genre.
So, when I came across ‘Cupid’s Quest’, I knew from the summary that this just might be the type of read but I really had no idea what I was in for.
Well, to put it simply, author Lori Soard has created what I consider to be the absolute definition of a top-quality romance read that I personally enjoyed from start to finish. The story is well-written, creative, and even quite humorous at times, but most importantly, the dynamic and chemistry between the main characters is executed near-perfectly in a way that seems truly realistic – as well as also being completely tasteful. “Cupid’s Quest” is a read that should not be overlooked by any fans of the genre, I will definitely be recommending it to friends of mine.
About the Author
Lori Soard has a PhD in Journalism and Creative Writing, but she’s hardly the stuffy professor type. She loves nothing better than a good romantic comedy and thinks the good guy should always win and the ending should always be happy.
From an early age, Lori started honing her story telling skills. As a kid she was rarely seen without a book in her hand, even walking and reading at the same time. Her first stories were about the world around her. At twenty she wrote her first novel, which she admits was horrible. At twenty-one, she sold her first article to a local newspaper. Once she got that taste of having others read her work and realizing that she could reach others and touch their hearts, there was no turning back for this natural born writer.
“If I can make someone’s day just a tiny bit better,” Lori says, “if I can make them smile even though they are sad, make them think things could be better, make them understand how much God loves them, then I have accomplished something. I write my stories, articles and books with that one person in mind who really needs the message. If I can change one person’s perspective, then I’ve succeeded.”
Lori is a life-long Hoosier and lives in southern Indiana with her two daughters, husband and beloved pets. “During the extreme low points in life, it has been my animals that have seen me through. There is nothing like the deep devotion of a dog or the unconditional love of a cat.” Lori adores animals and while some of her dear friends have crossed over the Rainbow Bridge she will always stand by her belief that animals make the world a better place.
