Abby Cooper: Psychic Eye

Abby Cooper: Psychic Eye by Victoria Laurie

Abby Cooper: Psychic Eye is the first installment of the Psychic Eye Mysteries series. When it arrived this (a long overdue trade), I decided to read it right away because I knew was to expect from it.

Abby Cooper is a thirty-something psychic in private practice in Royal Oak, Michigan. She ends up in the crime-solving business after one of her clients is murdered. The fact that the guy she's matched with on a dating site ends up being a detective causes problems (she's blamed for a different murder based on information she inadvertently shares with him on their first date) until he convinces him of her gift and how it can help him.

Abby Cooper is a quick read. Abby is a sympathetic character. The way she explains the root of her psychic abilities is interesting (and different that I would have expected. Apparently the author, Victoria Laurie, is herself a psychic so I assume the mechanics of clairvoyance in the novel are based on her personal experience.
