Review: Deeply, Desperately

Lucy Valentine is back!

Synopsis from Barnes and Noble:

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…
My Review:
Just as good as the first book.  Lucy finds herself another mystery to solve, this time it is a missing person she is looking for.  She continues to use her power of finding lost items to help and more and more people are finding out about what she can do.  This is both good and bad.  In this book, we also learn about a family secret that has been kept for years.  All of my favorite characters are here.  Raphael, Dovie, Lucy's parents, Em, Marisol, and Aiden.  Of course, Sean, her love interest is here too but in this book, a small wrench is thrown into the relationship.
The recurring theme in this book is definitely "love."  Finding lost loves, questioning new love, opening up to let yourself love again, and letting go when love is no longer there.  There was a little bit of mystery and suspense but not much.  It was just a quick, fun read. There are a few more in the series but I'm going to take a break and move on to something else for a while.  I'll come back and finish the other books at another time when I am looking for a lighter read.
