Review: Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye by Victoria Laurie (Rating 3 Wine Glasses)

From Goodreads: Clues are what every investigator needs to succeed…and that’s where Abby Cooper has an unorthodox edge. You see, sometimes, like it or not, clues just come to her. Abby is a different sort of P.I. She’s not a private detective, she’s a psychic intuitive working with a crew of spirit guides to offer her clients the benefit of her glimpses into their future. She believes that free will is the only weapon against the destiny her visions reveal; she also believes that foreknowledge can give a person the power to change the future events she sees.

Of course, with such power comes responsibility, especially when what Abby sees is a matter of life and death! When Abby’s talent gives her insights into the plans of a serial killer, she faces double jeopardy. She’s determined to stop the killing and that means finding a way to convince the authorities that she’s neither a kook nor a killer. Unfortunately, in her line of work, proof can be remarkably hard to come by, until it’s too late. And the danger grows when the killer proves easier to convince than the cops

Listened to on Audiobook
Narrator: Elizabeth Michaels
Bought on Audible

What I Loved:  This was a fantastic murder mystery and the psychic elements made it really fun.  Abby was an engaging lead character.  She was at times very brave and at the same time sometimes very stupid.  Dutch was a fantastic straight man to Abby and their exchanges were part of the fun of the book

What I Liked:  The fact that I did not know who the murder was committed by.  I guessed a couple of times and was completely wrong.  I think that makes a good mystery.

Complaints: Liar, Liar Pants on Fire was a little over used.

Audio Specific Review:  The narrator was ok but I think she made Abby sound older than she was.  I also think she made her sound a bit annoying at times.

Why I gave it a 3:  This was a fun little cozy murder mystery with a bit of a psychic connection.  I am definitely going to read more in this series.

Who I would recommend it too:  Anyone who likes fun mysteries and don’t mind a little bit of a psychic thrown in.

    Oh I love that you guessed the murderer several times and were wrong, that's definitely the sign of a great mystery! Liar, Liar Pants on Fire must have been used a lot if you remember it that well:) Great review Felicia!
