“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…

My Thoughts:

There’s nothing like a book with a good mystery, smoking romance, and a satisfactory ending.  With Absolutely, Positively, the reader gets all of that and more.  I am really a fan of this series, and Webber didn’t lose any steam with the third installment.

I’m loving all that is the world and life of Lucy Valentine.  Her parents are a riot, her grandmother a caring mess, and her man sensitive and sexy.  Lucy is keeping busy by using her unique gift of finding lost objects to unite long lost loves.  But the police solicit her gift as well to help with cold case files.  In this book Lucy is responsible for finding the lost love of a young girl while her mother and grandmother have asked her to look into the disappearance of a family friend.  On top of that, there is a mysterious man about posed as the Lone Ranger and throwing out cash.

Webber intricately weaves a romantic mystery in which many lives intersect, seemingly transparent people are more than they seem, and love really does conquer all.  The pacing was perfect and the writing was excellent.  Although I manged to solve both mysteries before the book ended, I was still completely enthralled and riveted the whole time.  So much so that I finished this book in one sitting.  I could NOT put it down.

Lucy is just as lovable as she was in the first two books, and I was happy to see the romance between her and Sean progress.  The relationship between the two is simply adorable, and the book provides some really private and intimate moments between the two.  A writer who can nail this is a winner in my book.  As I prefer a well written intimate scene over a scorching sex scene any day.

Overall, this one is a winner.  I am truly loving this series by Webber, and I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book which is scheduled to drop in January.

  1. Oh I was going to ask you but you answered my question. There will be another one in January. I read the first one but still have a long way to go. I LOVE when love conquers all. I’m such a sap 🙂

      LOL, me too Alexis! And yes I was happy to read that there will be another Lucy Valentine novel. I figured there would be anyway because there things aren’t all tied up as they should be with Lucy and Sean. But they made good progress in this one.

  2. I heard of Truly Madly, glad to read that you enjoyed the third installment. I want to check these out now.

    If only there was enough time in the day to read every book with a gorgeous I see. *sighs*

    I’m a romance girl at heart, so stories in where love overcomes all really get me going. Thanks for letting me know more about this series, Jade. Sounds like a really good one.

  4. This looks adorable!! love the cover!!
