My sister had picked this book up on a lark. Neither one of us had read anything else by this author. However, the blurb on the back sounded interesting.
I was the first to read it. I was definitely not disappointed.
This book is the first in the Lucy Valentine series. Lucy’s family has run a successful matchmaking business throughout time. Their ability to read auras has enabled them to match people up with their one true love.
It is said that Cupid himself had blessed the family with this ability. However, with this ability also came a great curse. No one in the family would be able to ever find true love themselves.
Of course, the various family members through time had married. None had ever had a happy marriage though.
Lucy’s parents dealt with their unhappy marriage by living in two separate houses. It wouldn’t look right if the world’s most prominent matchmaker had divorced his wife.
The curse doesn’t stop her grandmother, Dovie, from continuously setting her up on blind dates in hopes of finding love for Lucy.
Lucy’s ability had changed one fateful night when she was fourteen. She no longer had the ability to read auras. Instead, she could only locate missing objects. This really depressed Lucy since she felt that she could in no way contribute to the family legacy of matchmaking. What good is finding a lost set of keys? Or where someone left their glasses?
Lucy felt like the misfit in the family. So much that she even took in misfit animals, such as her 3 legged cat named Grendel.
Find out the wonderful and unusual way that Lucy uses her ability to help solve a murder that happened over 5 years ago.
