Mysterious Saturday Review: Truly Madly

Lucy's father has a talent that's shared by blood relatives - except for Lucy since she had an accident. Instead of seeing love matches through auras, she can find lost objects. When her father's caught having an affair, things heat up for the family business. Mr. and Mrs. Valentine head off for a tropical vacation, leaving Lucy in charge of the business. Lucy's never wanted to run the business, especially since she doesn't have the same gifts. In meeting with a client, she discovers a missing item of his is on a dead women buried in the park. With the help of the young private investigator who works upstairs, she uncovers the body and uncovers a whole web of lies to untangle. Can she find the murderer before the police go after her or her client?

My Thoughts: An excellent start to a new series filled with paranormal elements, romance, and mystery. I loved Lucy - she's quirky, fun, and wildly entertaining. I can't wait to read more about her.

The Cover: I like the open door, it's extremely inviting and the heart vines are adorable.

I also won this in a contest on Goodreads. I haven't read many mysteries but I think this is a series I will continue. It was suspenseful and adorable at the same time. Great review.
