Truly, Madly by Heather Webber

5 out of 5 Robots!
My Review:
Truly, Madly by Heather Webber was completely enthralling and a blast to read! I shot through this book so fast- such a quick and satisfying read. Did not want to put it down until I was finished. It was just what I needed... Nothing too heavy here. I plan on reading this book over again and again. 

Lucy Valentine and her family have been cursed by Cupid himself. Yep, how great is that? I loved the back story on the Valentine family. You see, they can all read auras and pair people off with their perfect match by the colors of those auras. They found a great way to make money doing it too. Generation after generation of the Valentine family has been keeping at it- that is, until it is Lucy's turn. Her powers were replaced with the ability to find lost objects after being electrocuted as a young girl. Now even though her newest ability may hinder the family business it does become quite useful... especially in life or death situations. Lets accentuate the death ;)

Now Lucy must suddenly take care of the family business while daddy recovers from a heart attack. That isn't all- a young child goes missing and she may have found the man of her dreams. But it all starts going down hill when Lucy finds something gruesome that should have been left alone... Talk about it all hitting the fan at once. So, is she up for it- think she can keep her paranormal abilities secret, find the boy, keep the business afloat and snag the man?

Although this book is primarily deemed a romance book, I found that there was more action and mystery. Don't get me wrong- there IS romance. It just is not the forefront of the plot. I loved it. It was more a mystery with a hint of romance and a twist of paranormal. Just enough of everything, perfect blend.  

Truly, Madly is extremely refreshing and I adored it, to say the least. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is even faintly interested. Pick it up! You will enjoy yourself! Webber already has plans for a second Lucy Valentine -Deeply, Desperately... and I can't wait to get my hands on it :)
