BOOK DESCRIPTION (FROM AMAZON)

**Broken Arrows is the first book of The Cupid Chronicles, a light, fun, fantasy romance series.**
Cari Harris lives what should be a charmed life. She owns a quaint bed and breakfast in a charming southern town, is surrounded by loving friends and family, and possesses magical powers. Most of the residents in Fable, GA, are descended from mythical creatures straight out of fairy tales, and Cari is no exception. As a descendent of Cupid, she has the ability to see when two people are soul mates and the power to make sure they fall in love. However, this power is sometimes more of a curse than a blessing, because Cari is also the town screw up.
While hosting a murder mystery weekend at her inn, she tries to match a young couple and makes a huge mistake. Now she must fix her mistake before the guests leave at the end of the weekend, all while making a bigger mess of things along the way, in her typical fashion.
As if Cari didn’t have enough to worry about already, her old boyfriend just moved back to town. Years ago, she forced herself to stop thinking about Mike, but now that he’s back, there is no avoiding him. It’s a small town and she keeps running in to him, no matter how much she hopes to avoid it. When she stumbles across some unexpected secrets, and Mike helps her with her current matchmaking dilemma, all of her feelings from the past come flooding back.

MY THOUGHTS

Cari, the daughter of the late Cupid, was a thriving bed and breakfast owner.  She wished that one day she would have the powers of her father when matching couples. Unfortunately, she only seemed to mess things.  Her murder mystery weekend at the Inn was no different.  When she tried to give a couple destined to be together a potion, the wrong people got the potion.  This made a heap of trouble for all.  Just when things couldn’t get any worse the police were called; and not just any police, but her ex-boyfriend who recently came back to town.

This was a really cute book, I would love to give it a higher rating, but unfortunately the book did end very abruptly.  I was disappointed by that because it was such a good read.  I am still rating it pretty high because the author did let us know there is more to come.  I definitely do recommend this book, but I would almost say to wait until others are released.  I feel this book could have had a better ending with more closure.  But hopefully the other books give us just what we are asking for.
