Lucy wants to breathe new life into her family’s Boston-based matchmaking company. But how? Even though she comes from a long line of ancestors blessed by Cupid with psychic abilities, a freak accident left Lucy with only one special skill: finding things. Car keys, socks in the dryer, needles in haystacks...and now, in a stroke of professional genius, lost loves!

It’s not long before Lucy’s on a winning streak, helping old flames reunite and create new sparks. Business is booming. But when Lucy finds herself involved in a possible case of murder, she realizes she’s in too deep. Enter Sean Donahue. Lucy’s handsome fire-fighter turned private-eye neighbor, Sean is just the man she needs to help her on the job. Could he also be the man she’s been looking for all along? When it comes to Valentine, Inc., falling in love is always serious business…

Review in 5: Sweet, Cute, Mystery, Love, Happy

Review: This book is absolutely adorable. I liked the first Lucy Valentine novel but I actually think this one is  better than the first. The characters are the sort of characters you would like to meet, be friends with, and hang out with. They stick with you and make you happy that you met them.

The mystery plot part of this story is a tad weaker that the romantic plot in this story but it is still interesting. Speaking of the romantic is cute and absolutely perfect. The character take their love slow and steady and don't rush here there and everywhere, throwing around words they couldn't possibly mean after only knowing each other.The point is....the characters are real, they know each other and fell in love based on normal things as opposed to the magic love that sometimes shows up in stories like this.

This series is great. It is nice, fun, and just happy. Great read for the bathtub while relaxing, or anywhere really, as long as you read it.
