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
To be fair, although the blurb may make the book out to be complete fluff, it really isn't. Not like, say, Ellen Byerrum's Crimes of Fashion books. The Lucy Valentine books are fun reads, but they're not fluffy. ...more
I liked how the author Heather Webber infuses mysterious events throughout the entire novel, but she doesn’t wait until the final ...more
This is a fun book about Lucy running her family match-making service for a couple of weeks. The thing is Lucy has a touch of physic in her. After ...more
I really liked this book! For a mystery (and a first mystery,) it was actually suspenseful, and didn't telegraph the ending a third of the way through. As an urban fantasy novel, it was convincing and consistent in its mythology-building, if definitely on the light-hearted side. As a romance, I was SO GRATEFUL that it wasn't your standard virgin-meets-hot-guy-with-issues then promptly has hot ...more
Lucy Valentine is recruited by her father to run Valentine's Inc, a super successful matchmaking service. All the Valentines have the ability to read auras and match people with their soulmates, but Lucy can no longer do that after a freak accident. However, she can find lost objects, instead. It's a light murder-mystery with some paranormal sprinkled in and lots of romance and humor. It's a great chick-lit book and I read it super fast. It was enjoyable and light, which ...more
This is the story of Lucy Valentine. She is a girl with a problem! Lucy comes from a long line of matchmakers. The ability to match make is literally in their genes. All of the members of her family can see the colors of people's spirits. Then, they find two people who's spirits match, and presto! You have a match.

Wonderfully funny, a little wacky, some hot romance without making me avert my eyes, ...more
Envisions a future where heartbreaks would have no space on the earth. Where everyone could live in complete harmony. Where everyone is happy and content with their love lives. Where there is no need for annulment and divorce. (Well, that was oddly TOO optimistic for me.)
Utilizing the use of “matching auras”, we at Valentine’s Inc. make sure that our clients are happy and satisfied and of course, “in love”.
This is a paranormal romance that I would definitely recommend to my friends. Lucy Valentine, ...more
Really, this was a 3.5 star book for me. I'll get my complaints out of ...more
Lucy hails from a long line of matchmakers known as Valentine Inc. According to family legend, the Valentines have been blessed by Cupid with psychic ability to help couples find true love. Trouble is, Lucy’s powers were zapped away by an electrical surge and now all she can do is find lost objects. What good is that in the matchmaking world?
The Mix of Romance- Mystery & Humor was just the right blend.
I enjoyed this book much more than I expected to after seeing the quote on the back ...more

I like LucyD, which is getting harder and harder to say about heroines these days. She's funny and charming, and I can't wait to see what other situations ...more
Smart, funny and interesting. It's a weird quirk to the whole 'psychic detective' cozies that I've read before.
Lucy Valentine is the daughter of Oscar Valentine who owns Valentine Inc. They are hugely successful mainly due to their well-kept secret, the ability to read Auras and base matches on that. Unfortunately Lucy was struck by lighting and that power was literally 'zapped' out of here. Instead, she can find items through touch.
All well in good until she's put in charge of the ...more
Chick Lit? Definetly
Meet Lucy Valentine, the psychic protagonist that you'll love.
A nice mystery story -kind of predictable but still a great introduction to the series that I will defenetly continue! ...more
After her father suffers a heart attack, Lucy Valentine is roped into working for the family matchmaking business. Unfortunately, the Cupid-like ability bestowed on all Valentines enabling them to match couples based on their auras was shocked right out of Lucy during an electrical surge. Instead, Lucy possesses the ability to find lost items, which is all well and good until they come attached to dead bodies . . .
A delightful mix of mystery, romance and humor.
The mystery is ...more
The book is yet another entry in the booming market of "paranormal romance," which most people take as "a vampire sex book." But not so in this case. Lucy Valentine, our sexy blond heroine (running trend, don't you think?), comes from a long line of people who have the ability to see other peoples auras who then match them up with their perfect mates, ...more
Between the psychic abilities and Cupid's Curse, Truly, Madly has just the right amount of paranormal themes going on. Not too heavy, and with just enough of a tease to make you want the next book to find out what will happen. I'd describe this as a paranormal chick-lit. A bit on the softer side, but just as entertaining, ...more
I am not usually a mystery reader, they tend to annoy me a great deal. With all the useless clues, and annoying detectives making annoying deductions, I'd rather stick to CSI, but this book changed my mind. The reason I usually detest mystery and suspence books so much is because I can usually predict the ending from a mile away. But in ...more
The book had a bit of a rocky start; I think a more judicious hand in the editing department would have benefitted the book greatly as Webber has a tendency to repeat names or information unnecessarily, which created a somewhat ...more
