3.0 out of 5 stars Venus, Cupid, high jinks, 7 April 2003

This review is from: Cupid: The Captivating Chauffeur (Paperback)
This book is one of a very funny series that has Cupid and his mother Venus meddling in human affairs to make good their own situation with dad Jupiter. Sometimes to make Jupiter pleased, sometimes to tick him off. The Gods really are like mischievous, spoiled and often charming children, and cause complete chaos and mayhem for the humans they are focusing on.
In this book it's the directionally impaired Frankie Ling, half Italian half Chinese part time worker in her fathers limousine service. Andrew Sullivan, having just sold his business for mega bucks and now free of the siblings he helped raised, is looking to cut loose a little. Only a little, because his idea of cutting lose is a learning tour - hiring a car and driver - Andrew can't drive - for a month and going to all those places he's always wanted to go. Only he gets Frankie as his driver, who takes him to places he's never even been before.
It's a funny story, largely because of the antics of Cupid and Venus and how they affect Frankie and Andrew. Frankie is a free spirit, and Andrew a stick in the mud, and that makes for some fun dialogue and situations. I don't know if two so completely opposed people would really get on, but Jeffries certainly makes these two opposites attract.
It takes real talent to be consistently light-hearted and funny without being heavy handed, and Jeffries really succeeds in this fantasy/comedy/romance. It's a tad shorter than the average tale, but well judged as otherwise it might have dragged.
