The story is all about Belle, who makes these spacial cupcakes called (you guessed it!) Cupid’s Cupcakes, she only makes them for that one special day of the year, although her best friend has her go for an interview with Brian who wants to know more about the baker behind these special (and some say magical) treats.
The story is pretty well worn, it’s a good thing it is a short story because it was clear to see what would happen from a mile off. Belle comes across as a good, solid character, although we know rather little about Brian, aside from he has a bit of a crazy ex-girlfriend. It’s a very basic story that is easy and quick to read through and yet that doesn’t make it bad, the general story-line is well used by all romantic writers and yet there is a nice twist since it’s all about these special cupcakes that seem to make people realise what they have with the special person in their life.
The ending is a bit rushed, but that is probably the point, if the author kept on going she would have had all the stages of the relationship written out as well which obviously wasn’t the plan.
As far as a short story goes, it is rather good, the character’s were nicely done and Belle got something to be proud of. The reader (depending on if they like this kind of romantic tale) is also left wanting more, but that can be done with the imagination.
