Nice mix of mystery, romance, and paranormal with a dash of funny!

I received a copy of Truly, Madly from Barnes & Noble as part of their Sneak Peek program. It's sort of a romance, mystery, paranormal combination with a touch of humor. Lucy is a great character who has a talent for finding lost objects, which she feels is practically useless when compared to her family's talent for finding true love as matchmakers.

This is a fast, fun read with likable characters. A little predictable, but I enjoyed the journey. The romance aspect wasn't hot & steamy, but still interesting. The mystery wasn't Agatha Christie hard, but still had a twist. I'd like to see more of Lucy, watch her relationship with Sean to see where it heads, see if she decides to stay with the family firm, and learn more about her grandmother Dovie.

Gave this a 4/5 rating as it was an enjoyable read, Ms Webber is a talented writer, and it left me wanting more! Recommend this book as a light, enjoyable read.

This book was Truly Maddening. It soap-operaish phrases were entirely too wordy. A maddening amount of characters who were tring to be entertaining, but seemed to get caught up in the authors words and descriptions of 'how the table cloth was placed', or 'how a bush was bending'. Please move on.
I say look for a better read. You should not have to spend much time to find.

    Really bad

    I was gonna start out by saying that I normally don't read romance novels and that this could just be the norm, and I'm just not used to it, but that just can't be. The plot was lame, predictable. The love thing sprang out of nowhere; Lucy and Sean had one conversation and already he's telling her how if only he could be with her. The author narrates absolutely everything; we're not idiots we know what a person means when he says something without her having to explain it all to us.
    Not a likable protagonist; paranoid, walks around thinking she's all that, and the only one who can help everyone.
    Wish I hadn't read it, but it was for the sneak peak.
    The only good thing about this book was its cute cover.
