Product DetailsTruly, Madly (Lucy Valentine Book 1) by Heather Webber

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 forsomething. 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…

Very fun book. Won it from LibraryThing as an ARC, it comes out in February 2010. It is the start of a new series about a misfit in a line of matchmakers. Since this is the start of the series, the romance aspect is still developing fully. But we did meet the hero, Sean, and they make an interesting team. She has a vision of a dead body and solicits Sean's help in finding it, though does not give him any details. No one is supposed to know about her psychic abilities and she ends up outting herself while she is trying to help some people. The ending was great and I look forward to reading the next in the series.
Great light-hearted paranormal, I give it an A-.

Kris, this story--and the whole series for that matter--sounds really fun and sweet. I'm definitely putting this one on my list. It sounds refreshingly different. Thanks so much for the heads up! :)
