The Cupid Effect by Dorothy Koomson


From Goodreads

Ceri D'Altroy watches too much Oprah Winfrey - and it's having serious repercussions. Bored with London life and writing yet another 'have the perfect orgasm' feature, she's decided to take Oprah's advice and follow her heart's desire. Going back to college might not be everyone's dream but all Ceri's has ever wanted to do is lecture . . .

Unfortunately, Ceri's new start seems to involve disrupting lives: within days she's reunited a happily uncoupled couple, encouraged her new flatmate to do something about his unrequited love, and outed the secret relationship of her two colleagues. Only, while Ceri's playing Cupid for others, the highlight of her social calendar is trying a new hair conditioner. Something needs to be done, but can Ceri stick to her vow to give up her accidental matchmaking for good. . ?

A delicious comedy about love, life and following your heart...

My thoughts

I gave this a 7/10 after I'd read it and I stick by that score a month later.

I enjoyed this story about Ceri, a young woman who appeared to have the ability to help feel fall in love and reconcile any differences that they may have had in their relationships.  however, while she may be good at helping others, she is not quite as good at dealing with matters of her own heart and she can't always see what might be under her own nose so to speak.

To find out if the path of true love will ever be found for Ceri, then grab a copy of this debut story from Dorothy Koomson and if you like it or love it, then bask in the glory that she has quite a back catalogue of books for you to catch up with.
