It's hard to pinpoint exactly what I loved so much about this novel, as I guess it's everything. The setting is very English, the idea of saving a Victorian street in Bristol is so endearing, especially to a non-British person like me. Then there are the characters, each of them beautifully depicted, I could imagine them as if they were standing in front of me, and Evie and Michael, the main protagonists, ah, I loved both of them, even if they were on opposite sides of the fence. I wanted to scream at them at times and just say "come on guys, find a way to work it out" but it was out of my control. And Evie's grandparents, they're so much like any grandma and grandpa, I mean, you just want to take them home with you.
The plot is full of surprises and twists, you just never knew how it's going to end.
I was really taken by Cupid's Way and I just wanted it to go on forever. I hope the author finds a way to write a sequel.
I thought this was a lovely, well told romance with a difference, the difference being the numerous memorable characters who populate Cupid's Way, not least Evie's grandparents. I thought the author portrayed all the characters so well, they were all unique and interesting. I especially liked the character of Evie's grandmother who was funny and infuriating all at the same time.
The two main characters, Evie and Michael, were well drawn too and I found myself rooting for Evie especially all the way through - as you're meant to but this never felt forced. I thought the opening was great and the story unfolded gradually, making me wonder how exactly things would turn out for the characters I liked so much.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a lighthearted romance.
It set off at a great rate building the characters up nicely so there was no confusion over who was who, the plot slowly built with a few twists here and there. But overall was a really nice community read, cupids way is where Evies nan and grandad have lived all their lives with hidden secrets that have never been spoken about and a lot of other neighbours who battle against having the street demolished for a hospital to be built on.
I thoroughly enjoyed this and will look out for more books by Joanne Phillips in the future.
