The Valentine family has matchmaking ability as a result of their ability to read auras and Lucy's father asks her to take over the family matchmaking business while he recuperates in the Caribbean. But Lucy's ability was zapped away when she was 14 and now she can only find lost objects. One of her clients leads her into a mystery and shows her a new use for her abilities. She hires the sexy private investigator whose office is upstairs to help with her the matchmaking and the mystery.
The tone of the book is light, romantic and a little bit comedic. You might even call it a fun bit of fluff. It's a great book to curl up and read in front of the fire or on the beach.
I think what makes the book so fun is that it is filled with interesting characters. In addition to Lucy, her parents and grandmother, and the private investigator, there is her father's driver (who is also looking for love) and Lucy's two best friends. This book introduces us to Lucy and her family and friends and plants the seeds of some future romances involving several of the characters. I look forward to reading the next book in the series, Deeply, Desperately: A Lucy Valentine Novel due out in August 2010.
Lucy Valentine was lucky enough to be born in the famous Valentine clan. A heritage that includes special powers that allow all their family to see auras of people. This helps them match couples and their success rate has made them rich and famous. However, although they can match other people they are cursed to never be able to find their own perfect match! So when Lucy's married father is caught in an affair he asks Lucy to take over the business while he goes with her mother to hide and let the publicity die down. But there is a BIG problem, Lucy is a Valentine but she lost her power to see auras when she was electrocuted which mysteriously changed her powers. Now she has the ability to find lost objects. Lucy feels like a fraud and useless but circumstances teach her that maybe she has more abilities than she believes. When she thinks she discovers an unsolved murder and asks for the aid of the new and handsome investigator, Sean Donahue her world spirals gets out of control!
This is a quick and enjoyable book that is perfect to get you in the mood for Valentine's.

I thought this was going to be a bit more of a romance. But it was quite interesting- a bit romance, a bit mystery, a bit supernatural. Will definitely read more of the seriesPublished 6 months ago by Lbuzz
