Book Review: 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 engagement ring—on a dead body—she asks the sexy private eye who works upstairs to help her solve the perfect crime. And who knows? Maybe she’ll find the perfect love while she’s at it…

AAAAH! I loved this book SO MUCH. I don't know when I became a fan of romance novels but here I am ladies and gentleman. This was the perfect way to ease me into something remotely romantic because there were supernatural elements and mystery involved!

I absolutely LOVE Lucy Valentine and her psychic powers. You fall in love with her instantly as she is clearly an amazing character that doesn't quite know it yet! I also love Sean Donahue and the cat Grendel. I'm wondering if Webber looked at parts of my life and decided to make me into a story. There are so many similarities.

Looking forward to the rest of the series. I highly suggest this read to fans of mystery, quick reads & romance.

  4. This one was recommended to me a little while ago. I'm glad to see it get another positive review. I'll be moving it up my TBR. Thanks!
