Love in Row 27 - Eithne Shortall

What happens when Cupid plays co-pilot?

Still reeling from a break-up, Cora Hendricks has given up on ever finding love. For herself, that is. To pass the time while working the Aer Lingus check-in desk at Heathrow, Cora begins to play cupid with high-flying singles.

Using only her intuition, the internet, and glamorous flight attendant accomplice Nancy, Row 27 becomes Cora's laboratory of love. Instead of being seated randomly, two unwitting passengers on each flight find themselves next to the person of their dreams - or not.

Cora swears Row 27 is just a bit of fun, but while she's busy making sparks fly at cruising altitude, the love she'd given up on for herself just might have landed right in front of her...

My thoughts:
This one was cute and had some more serious moments too. I liked how it was build too, but we will come to that soon.

Cora works at the airport and she spends way too much time researching passengers and putting one couple in row 27. Hoping they will fall in love. And as the book progresses it turns into more of an obsession. She must find love for others, but what about herself?

She does have help, I mean how else would she see if it pays off? Nancy, a stewardess, tries her best to spy on the happy, or unhappy couple ;)

What I liked is that we actually got the POVS from the couples in row 27. Sometimes it works, sometimes they are so wrong for each other. And we also get 2 frequent fliers and get to see them sit there a few times. I really wanted her to find a match for Ingrid, and as for Aiden, well yes he needed some happiness too.

The more serious aspects would be her mum getting worse and worse since she has Alzheimers and Cora disappearing into her matchmaking world.

Conclusion:
There is friendship, humour and romance all around. Some will find love, some not. I enjoyed this tale, it was light.

What a cute premise for a story! I wonder if any travel booking agents or airline workers have actually done this, lol.
