Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye

Author: Victoria Laurie
Genre: Mystery

4 Stars

This is the first book in the "Abby Cooper" series.  Abby Cooper is a P.I., psychic intuitive. When one of her clients is killed, she wondered why she didn't foresee their death.  It doesn't help that the lead investigator on the case is a recent blind date, who is very suspicious of her abilities, and a there is a killer who is out to silence her.  Being a psychic intuitive, when she sees clients, she gets vibes from her spirit guides and tells the clients things they should know right away.
I really liked this book. It had a good plot and was interesting, although in the first part of the book it was all talk for many, many, many pages.
But then she goes on a blind date with a man named Dutch.  She says some things during the date (due to a television news program in the background - guess they weren't at a fancy restaurant - and because of what she says, she is visited by the police the next day.  It turns out the investigating officer is her blind date from the night before.  So begins the real story.  He wants to know how she knew what she did and seems to think she has something to do with the crime.

Soon, one of her clients turns up dead, which doesn't help her try and convince the police that she knew nothing about the crime at all.

The only real problem I had with this book is Dutch, her kind-of-maybe-boyfriend, who had a really hard time believing she was a psychic, even after she proved it numerous times. Either the guy is really dense, or, if he's going to question her all the time, she might want to rethink having anything else to do with him.  Maybe he'll figure it out later in the series; but all in all, a good read.
