“Exposed” by a Boston Herald reporter, Lucy is suddenly the talk of the town. Long back-story short: Even though the rest of her Valentine ancestors were blessed by Cupid with psychic abilities, Lucy’s only special power lies in her ability to find things. This skill has proven quite a blessing for those who come to her matchmaking agency in search of finding their long-lost loves. Now that Lucy’s secret is out, she has more new clients than she knows what to do with. But soon a certain man of mystery steals Lucy’s spotlight…
No, it’s not Sean Donahue, the sexy fireman-turned-private-eye who’s stolen Lucy’s heart. It’s a masked man in a cowboy hat, dubbed “The Lone Ranger,” who’s been throwing handfuls of cash across the Common. Now all of Beantown’s abuzz. Can Lucy unmask the mysterious money man, track down all her clients’ old flames, and turn up the heat on her love life? Absolutely, positively…
This is the third book in the Lucy Valentine series. I love the covers for the series and the titles.
Lucy is still going back and forth between her heart and her mind. The Valentines are cursed in love. She’s a romantic who thinks she’s found “The One” in Sean but she lets her belief in the curse hold her back. Her grandmother and mother are getting a little cranky while waiting for a new baby to join the family.
Absolutely, Positively doesn’t have the magic of Truly, Deeply but was still a worthwhile read. The series seems to be back on track. Lucy is moving towards a major life decision and may get there in the next book or two.
If you’re a writer who wants to see how threads of plots and subplots come together, this is a nice read to see how it’s done.
