Deeply, Desperately by Heather Webber is the second book in the “Lucy Valentine” mystery series. Publisher: St. Martin’s Paperbacks, August 2010
The irrepressible star of Truly, Madly is back in business. This time, Lucy Valentine will go the ends of the earth to find true love for her clients—and maybe even herself.
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 a haystacks—and now, in a stroke of professional genius, love loves!
It’s not long before Lucy’s on a winning streak, helping old flames reunite and 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.
I love, love, love this series. Lucy has a lot on her mind with trying to solve two lost-love cases, dealing with family situations, and dealing with her love life but somehow, things always work out for the best. This was a delightful and fun-paced read that captured my attention from the start to the last page. I can’t wait to read “Absolutely, Positively,” the next book in this series. My rating: 5 stars
