While still recuperating from injuries sustained in her previous case, the last thing psychic investigator Lucy Valentine wants is to dive into another job. But when Detective Lieutenant Aiden Holliday comes calling for help in finding a missing woman, saying no is not an option.
TV journalist Kira Fitzpatrick has vanished without a trace. There’s little for Lucy to go on except picking up Kira’s current investigation where she left off. The fearless reporter had been close to cracking one of the year’s biggest cases: the disappearance of a two-year-old boy.
Now Lucy must use her abilities to find both of them. As she follows a twisted trail of lies and deceit, she uncovers a shocking twist to Kira’s exposé that someone is desperate to keep secret. It’s a race against the clock as Lucy struggles to discover who’s telling the truth…and who’s willing to kill to keep her from solving the case.
Review: Whenever I'm looking for a book that I know I will love I turn to Heather Webber/Heather Blake. I actually try to save her books, especially the Lucy Valentine series, for when I need a reading lift but Julie's review of the fourth novel, Perfectly Matched, left me craving a visit with LucyD.
Perfectly Matched had a significant twisty cliffhanger at the end and it was marvelous that Undeniably Yours picks up right where things were left off. The supporting cast is more in the background this time around but they are still supportive and present in the story. (Most of Lucy's friends and investigative team are out of commission after the last case so Lucy has to go this one with just Aiden.) The case is intriguing and personal for everyone. I had an inkling of where things were headed and I was not disappointed to be right, but I certainly wasn't completely right; Heather Webber always has good twists up her sleeve.
The only thing I wish there had been discussed more was her unusual predictive link with Sean. Has it disappeared completely? Will it resurface? Last book spent a lot of time dealing with Lucy and her abilities and while she did use them, I felt like I wanted a little more continuation with the exploration of this. However that was a small shadow over an otherwise sunny novel.
There was no cliffhanger this time, but as always things were tied up just enough to leave you craving more time with Lucy and her family. I love all of Heather Webber's books, but Lucy Valentine will always be my favorite, so I will patiently await her next adventure.
