Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye by: Victoria Laurie Review

Description via 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.

The author's bio for Victoria Laurie reveals that this talented writer is a psychic medium who has assisted police in cold-case investigations. I, for one, can't wait to see what the future holds for the fascinating Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye mystery series.

My Review:
This was the first book I had read by Ms. Laurie she has a knack for writing a great story mixed in with mystery, psychic abilities and humor. I found myself laughing out loud at some parts of her story. We follow Abby Cooper who is in her thirties and works as a psychic intuitive. She hasn't had a steady relationship for a long time. She decides to put herself on a dating site. Where she meets Dutch who's a bit shady with his profile. Abby is deathly afraid police won't take her seriously and almost has her fears confirmed through Dutch who's a cop. While a set of sisters are dead within a short time of each other, the police rely on Abby's abilities to help them nab the killer. Being open to psychics I think it's a great story. I also find myself thinking Ms. Laurie has hit on something with Abby's motto on her meetings with clients only 2 in one year so that one doesn't become a junkie to it. Definitely a great series beginner and one that has me hooked. Look out Sookie Stackhouse you have some stiff competition.
