Book 71: Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye by Victoria Laurie

Abby Cooper has P.I. on her business cards and she gets a laugh out of that since she is a Psychic Intuitive not a private investigator. In fact it only takes a little to get a laugh out of her since her life is so ordinary - so vanilla-ice cream (in her words). Then things start happening around Abby, people are turning up dead and she has a date with the handsome man named Dutch who she later finds out is a police detective (Abby doesn't like the police).

As Abby gets closer and closer to the truth about an apparent suicide, her life becomes in danger and her intuition is telling her things that she can't quite figure out. Add in the attraction to Dutch and their general distrust of each other and you have a very interesting book.

I enjoyed the mystery and it wasn't a giveaway to figure out. I also loved the characters. Abby is quirky in a normal-kind of way and her sister is great. Dutch's character is also interesting and add in Dutch's partner Milo and Abby's handyman Dave and you have a bunch of characters that you really like and want to learn more about.

I can't wait to start the second in this series.
