Matching Wits With Venus by Therese Gilardi is definitely an imaginative tale, bringing together modern characters and setting with ancient mythology. Amelia runs a successful matchmaking business – so successful in fact that Venus, the Roman goddess of love, is jealous. Thus begins a twisted campaign to malign the human matchmaker. Venus enlists several of her immortal cohorts to spoil Amelia’s business, but not before her son, Cupid, accidentally pricks himself with one of his own arrows. Who is the first person he sees once the love potion has taken hold? You guessed it – Amelia. This makes for some very intriguing complications, with some plot twists and surprises that I was not expecting. The story weaves in and out between worlds; following both the lives of the Olympian gods and the mere mortals of present day earth. It was a fun read, not to be taken too seriously, but still enjoyable.
