Not too long ago, I realized that I read way too many of the same kind of book: Suspense/Mystery etc. I started browsing through some blogs and found The Lucy Valentine series. Chick lit! But it's also a mystery, so I'm sort of moving away from the same old same old.
I tried to put it on hold at the library but that seemed impossible. So this Wednesday, I'm waiting on the first in the series:
Truly, Madly by Heather Webber
Lucy Valentine is as smart as can be, as single as you can get, and so not qualified to run a matchmaking service. But when her parents temporarily step down from the family business, Valentine, Inc., it’s Lucy’s turn to step up and help out—in the name of love.
Plus, her rent is due.
Here’s the problem: Lucy doesn’t have the knack for matchmaking. According to family legend, every Valentine has been blessed by Cupid with the ability to read “auras” and pair up perfect couples. But not Lucy. Her skills were zapped away years ago in an electrical surge, and now all she can do is find lost objects. What good is that in the matchmaking world? You’d be surprised. In a city like Boston, everyone’s looking for something. So when Lucy locates a missing wedding ring—on a dead body—she asks the sexy private eye who lives upstairs to help her solve the perfect crime. And who knows? Maybe she’ll find the perfect love while she’s at it…
