One Word Review: Enjoyable

First Line: “There comes a time in every girl’s life when she realizes her father isn’t perfect.”

Synopsis: 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. --GoodReads

Kathy’s Review: This is my first Heather Webber book and I have to say after reading “Truly, Madly” I will be checking out her other series. I really enjoyed the story and characters. I liked that it took place in charming Boston, and had just a touch of magic. I liked the history of Cupid and the family matchmaking business, with a mix of mystery. Lucy was a fun character; she’s pretty easy going and quick witted. I liked her “ability” to find lost things, and I think it will be a great set-up for future books. I also liked that there were a couple different mysteries going on at the same time, which kept me guessing until the end. I liked the love interest; I think they’ll be a good match. I guess there is a touch of the “romance novel” in here, in that it seems a little more like lust at first site, but I think they will take things slow and hopefully build a good relationship. This was a fun romantic mystery to read during February!
