The Cupid Effect Paperback
There's something magical about Ceri D'Altroy ...After leaving 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 young woman be modern-day Cupid?

Review by RuthieD
Loved this book for most of it-even parts of it stayed with me during the day. However the last couple of chapters my interest began to fizzle and Dorothy herself began to run out of steam. Perservered though and am glad.
Review by SueinCyprus
Ceri quits her job in journalism to follow her heart's desire lecturing in psychology. She also hopes to leave behind her habit of getting involved in people's lives and apparently messing them up.. only to find that in Leeds, where she moves, it's impossible to avoid commitment. <br/><br/>Blessed with strong intuition and deep emotions which are not being channeled into her own relationships, she feels the pain other people are going through, and finds herself becoming a catalyst for other people's love lives. <br/><br/>The 'cupid' connection is a little surreal, but the writing is excellent; I was surprised to learn that this was the author's debut novel. Four and a half stars, really.
