Truly, Madly by Heather Webber
The story centers on Lucy. She comes from a long line of matchmakers but due to an electrical surge, she's lost her matchmaking abilities. Instead, she can find lost objects by touching someone's hand. She never embraces her gift as a gift, instead it's a disappointment to her that she can't follow in her family's legacy. When Lucy's father leaves her in charge of the business for a couple weeks, she discovers that maybe her abilities are something special. Lucy gets wrapped up in a missing child, a murder investigation, and a heavy flirtation with the PI in the office upstairs.
The characters are completely enjoyable. Even the pets are lovable with their fun little quirks. There are at least two more books in the series and I can't wait to read them. It's always nice to find new authors (to me) and a new series to look forward to!
I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to smile while reading a mystery. It's recommended for adults or older teens as there is a bit of a love story. Nothing explicit which is nice but a lot of kissing. . .
