Book Review: Truly, Madly by Heather Webber

  • Mass Market Paperback: 305 pages
  • Publisher: St. Martin's Paperbacks; Original edition (February 2, 2010)

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…

This book is a fun read and yet not at all what I imagined. When I read the synopsis of the book I thought that it would be an enjoyable read without much substance. As far as substance goes I was completely wrong. It wasn't just a book about matchmaking. There was mystery, murder, and romance and I want MORE! I absolutely LOVED reading it. I can't wait for the next in the series to come out. Each character really brings something to this book and it will be interesting to see what happens with them all next.I definitely recommend this book.


I received this book after winning it at Early Reviewers. Any opinions I express are my own and are not influenced by anyone else.
