Jenn's Review: Perfectly Matched

Summary:  The heat is on...

When Boston psychic Lucy Valentine finds herself involved with a group of eccentric mediums trying to fine tune their abilities, she is convinced a rare spring heat wave has flushed all the local crazies out of hiding.

Adding to her theory is her newest client in the Lost Loves division of Valentine, Inc., her family’s lucrative matchmaking firm. He’s an animal whisperer who hires Lucy to locate his soul mate—because his cat told him so. Finding his purrfect match, however, isn't as easy as it seems.

But craziest of all is the Beantown Burner, a serial arsonist who is targeting private eye Sam Donahue, brother of Lucy’s boyfriend, Sean. With the help of her kooky psychic group, Lucy must tap into hidden abilities to catch the firebug before the fires turn deadly. She never expected to discover that the motive behind the flames hits a little too close to home...and dangerously close to her heart.

Review:   Oh, how I love Lucy Valentine! I am thrilled that Heather Webber decided to continue this series. Perfectly Matched is the fourth book in the Lucy Valentine series and it quickly became one of my favorites.

One of the best parts of the Lucy Valentine books is the way Heather Webber perfectly balances the combination of her character's and their relationships with a mystery in the plots. I was so absorbed by what was going on with everyone that I wasn't even trying to solve the cases Lucy was working on. Heather Webber is one of those rare author's who's work I can just sit back and enjoy.

The ending was a total shocker, in more ways than one. I did catch the one major clue but dismissed it as something else entirely. I was totally in the dark. Just as things stated to get neatly tied up, Ms. Webber drops a major bombshell that sent me reeling.

Hopefully, Heather Webber has already started work on another Lucy Valentine book, because I'm not sure how long she can keep me hanging. This is Lucy at her best.  If you have never tried this series, I highly recommend it; you will be rewarded with great characters and entertaining story lines.

Final Take:  5/5
