Publish Date: February 2, 2010
List Price: $7.99
My Rating: 4 out of 5
Meet Lucy Valentine; sassy, fabulously original…and psychic.
Lucy hails from a long line of matchmakers known as Valentine INC. According to family legend, the Valentines have been blessed by Cupid with the ability to help couples find true love. Trouble is Lucy’s powers were zapped away by an electrical surge and now all she can find are lost objects. But what good is that in the matchmaking world?
Lucy is about to find out when she tries to solve a murder and winds up falling into a romance of her own.
An ARC winner! What a brilliantly, intriguing book. I originally read this book in December 2009 and I thought I would share my review as book #2, Deeply, Desperately has just been released.
It is a story about a young woman struggling to deal with a paranormal power and feeling a little lost. It includes love, mystery, murder, and a bit of comedy. I think we all struggle to find our place within our family fabric, with friends, and the world around us. Lucy is working on figuring out what she should do about being a part of the family business. She does it all with suspense, adventure, and love along the way. It is a great light-hearted read that is action packed and hilarious at times. I really enjoyed Lucy's adventure.
I love the author's writing voice. It is smooth and completely envelopes the reader into Lucy's world. Her experiences, emotions and thought process all keep the reader 100% engaged. I read this book in 1 day. I am eagerly awaiting to read book #2 and #3. I think the character of Lucy is going to start a great series of mystery, love, and enticing humor. I am really glad that I was offered the chance to read this book and look forward to Heather Webber's additional books to the series. Deeply, Desperately was just released Aug. 3, 2010. I am already reading this one and will have a review soon. If you like Charlaine Harris mysteries, this book falls in line with that genre. Great book, I want more!!
