What's Love Got to Do With It?

Lucy Valentine, only child of the C.E.O. of Valentine, Inc - a famous and successful matchmaking firm - has no desire to take over her father's company. Not even for a couple of weeks. For one thing, she was happily off on her own, doing her own thing.

Okay, maybe not so happily.

It's not like she has the family ability to see people's auras anymore, so why did her father choose her to take over while he went on sabbatical?

Because she carries the family name. His reasoning doesn't satisfy her either. But she is in between jobs, and besides, what can it hurt? It's not like she could completely screw up someone's love life. Oh, wait...

Things get even more interesting on day one of this temporary job when she meets her upstairs neighbor: P.I.-in-training Sean Donahue.

She has an immediate, and strong, reaction to him.

Don't let that fool you. This is not your standard romance novel. Nowhere near.

I loved it anyway. Waiting patiently for the second one. Maybe they'll do more than just *think* about being together.

Patient? Me? Yeah, right. ^_-

I devoured this book in one sitting, most of which was in the waiting room at the dentist's office. I got some weird looks for laughing so loudly, too. Then the ending made me cry (happy tears) - though sleep deprivation could also be blamed - and laugh. Simultaneously. More weird looks. Obviously not readers. 

Not like us. Truly, Madly by Heather Webber will make you laugh out loud.

What are you waiting for? Go buy it!
