In the Royal Oak suburb of Detroit, thirtysomething Abby Cooper lives a life that s kind of like vanilla ice cream good enough, but a little bland Her work as a P.
I psychic intuitive can be rewarding, but she feels like somehow she s missing out on the hot fudge topping Now she s getting what she wished for as one of her clients turns up dead and the clues start pointing in Abby s direction She just knows too many details about the murder for her own good To make matters worse, the hot blind date she just met turns out to be the lead investigator on the case And go I was looking for brain candy this was the verbal equivalent of Pop Rocks Actually, I don t know a candy awful enough to stand as an analogy to this book.
Egregious quotations Me liiiiikes it kissed the bejesus out of me He had that effect on people he was someone who quite literally exuded virility oh, dear God , and like a scent in the air it tickled the noses of everyone interested A flutter of insecurity tickled my tummy, and I wished for not the first time that day that I had puteffort into my appearance before leaving the house Dutch opened the door to a bedroom just down the hall I was surprised to see that the room was painted a pale lavender with white trim Lace doilies and antique porcelain knickknacks dotted every surface I cocked one eyebrow at him, Whoever has mused that covers attract hasn t lied, for I admit the cover of this book is what first drew me to it I always am a sucker for cozy mysteries, and this proved to be a fun one.
Abby s personality is a contagious mixture of bubbling awkwardness, firm self assurance, and strong sense of humanity Although she s a psychic, she s sure to limit her clients to only two visits per year, in order to prove to them true answers lie within themselves, and not to fall into the trap of being a scam artist causing others to depend on psychics for all their endless answers Detective Dutch Rivers was a fun, protective guywhat is it about detectives that usually ends up so hot in most books His personality was great, from the awkward set up date to the interrogations and, finally, to the ultimate revelation o After years of struggling to accept her psychic ability, Abby Cooper decides to put her gift to use and starts a business as a psychic intuitive Her business is doing very well and she is booked months in advance Abby sees so many clients she can t remember them all and even though she got an icky feeling while doing a reading for Allison Pierce, she soon forgets about her But Allison is murdered and the police, skeptical about Abby s psychic powers, think Abby had something to do with the murder since she knows a lot about it Abby, needing to clear her name, beings to investigate Allison s life and death Hunky police detective Dutch Rivers is soon convinced of her innocence but is unhappy that Abby is investigating the case because he realizes the real killer is dangerous Abby soon realizes she should have listened to Dutch as she faces very real danger Abby Cooper Psychic Eye Review originally posted on Bitten books and given 4 stars.
This book was a quick, fun, and light read It didn t have much substance but I wasn t hoping for any Laurie had me laughing out loud at certain parts and commending her on many of her witty and sarcastic remarks I really enjoyed the writing style and feel of this book It was fast paced without being overwhelming and the subject of a psychic detective never felt contrived or unrealistic.
I enjoyed all of Laurie s characters Abby grew on me quite quickly She was funny, caring and in a little over her head, which I always find fun when paired with humor She had a great voice that kept me interested and chowing down chapters I especially loved Abby s interactions Ever noticed how superheroes always have really useful superpowers Strength, speed, the ability to read minds No superhero has autoclave vision, or breath so bad that it gets rid of vermin No superhero has the ability to recite to 1000 places Maybe there are semi heroes who can do those things but I guess they re not superheroes because there s nothing super about that stuff Abby Cooper is in the superhero group She can see into the future with uncanny accuracy So uncanny errrso accurate.
uncannily accurate that you couldn t help but believe her She knows stuff she couldn t possibly know if she wasn t magical psychic girl And that s kind of what I don t like about the book I think it would have been better if her abilities were underplayed, less obvious, less accurate,open
