Publisher's Summary

An American celebrity chef and an Italian chocolate maker cook up a magical recipe for true love.

In a tiny village in the hills of Tuscany is a statue of Cupid with the power to grant the deepest desires of the heart to all who ask. The village is home to single mother Valentina, who runs a struggling chocolate shop. All she's ever wanted was to fit in, determined to provide a quiet, normal life for herself and her daughter. She works hard to keep it together, asking for nothing...especially not Cupid's help. Not when that would mean admitting to herself and everyone else that her deepest desire is to find the love of a woman. 

American celebrity chef Andie should be having the time of her culinary life while on a PR blitz in Tuscany. Instead, a tabloid scandal that threatens to destroy her career has her hiding in a remote hillside village. With nothing to do but worry and wait, she spends her time avoiding shame and infamy by flirting with a local chocolate maker who's as irresistible as the sweets she sells. She's shocked by the discovery that her heart longs for much more than a temporary distraction, but even if she can convince the reluctant Valentina to give her a chance, how can she balance a relationship in Italy with a career in the States?

When it comes to realizing the deepest desires of their hearts, it just might take an act of divine intervention for these two women to find their future together!

Letters to Cupid is the third book in the Americans Abroad series of stand alone romantic comedies. Don't miss Waltzing on the Danube and Holme for the Holidays!

LETTERS TO CUPID

The narrator did an excellent job in reading a very entertaining novel by this author. She gave voice to a well written story.

Was pretty good

Stephanie Murphy does a great job narrating, but her lack of an Italian accent was disappointing considering this story took place in Italy, with mainly Italian characters. Also, Andy's character was extremely unlikeable at the very beginning - entitled and bossy - she was behaving like an extreme diva. This makes her behaviors later on in the book feel rather unbelievable and not genuine. Overall, it was as one would expect from Miranda MacLeod, a funny tale with laugh out loud moments.

Heartwarming

Heartwarming, charming and sexy story. Is about facing your reality and dare to love. Andy and Valentina are examples of beautiful, working, family women that dare to give love a chance. Is a sexy, sexy story I definitely recommend.

This story was pretty good, but overly long

This story starts out as a young girl’s coming of age story, involving a magic “Cupid” fountain that is supposed to for-tell who you will fall in love with. Years later, after her marriage ends, she has a different sort of coming of age when she meets an intriguing woman. I wasn’t especially taken with any of the characters in this story, particularly the main character. As the story drug on, I became less and less interested in the characters and what they were doing. Though the writing was okay, it seemed like a needlessly drawn out story focused on the main character’s coming to terms with her homosexuality. What I liked most about the story was the setting (she works at the family’s chocolate shop) in Italy and the grandmother, who I thought was the most interesting character.

Chocolate delight

I loved Letters to Cupid by Miranda MacLeod. Located in a small Tuscany town, the fountain is one of the best characters written into this romance. Andie and Valentina so rightfully belong together, and their journey in finding each other is delicious. You can imagine the smells and tastes of sharing a meal with a real Italian family, which I miss. Stephanie Murphy is the perfect narrator for the MacLeod novels.

Fairy tale romance

Set in a quiet village in Italy Cupid the story is a fun look into fairy tales becoming reality. These characters are well developed and realistic. This book is well written and definitely worth a listen on audible.

Like a cup of hot cocoa.

Letters to Cupid is a heartwarming romance, and exactly what I have come to expect from Miranda MacLeod. Stephanie Murphy's narration complements MacLeod's sweet romances to perfection. Her voice and pacing are the whipped cream to MacLeod's hot cocoa. My one complaint about this book is that, as a native, I found the stereotypes about Tuscany and Italians a bit much. To the author's credit, though, those did not bother me beyond their initial appearance. The book was so much fun, and the characters so real and relatable, that I couldn't hold a grudge for presenting the setting as most readers would envision it. Bonus points for the lack of miscommunication and other forms of relationship drama. I would recommend this audiobook to anyone looking for a sweet, heartwarming romance listen.
