Abby Cooper is a P.I., psychic intuitive. But her insight failed her when she didn't foresee the death of one of her clients-or that the lead investigator for the case is the gorgeous blind date she just met. Now, with the police suspicious of her abilities and a killer on the loose, Abby's future looks more uncertain than ever.

This was a book on my TBR for a very long time. It is one of the first Cozy Mysteries I tried. I wasn't really into the genre yet but this book for sure changed my mind. I love anything psychic... especially those that solve mysteries. This book was a lot of fun and a lot of sass. I just loved the characters and the writing and the mystery. 
Abby Cooper is a psychic. She makes a living off or reading people and has a pretty legit client base. Well one of her clients is murdered and she feels she should have seen it coming... what she did see was a bit of a warning but the client didn't listen and well now she is dead. Abby gets a visit from a very attractive detective and together they venture to solve this mystery... and maybe tangle with a bit of romance. 

I really just loved this book. It was everything I was looking for in a good paranormal mystery. It was all there, the mystery, the fun psychic abilities, the banter between characters, the danger, the attitude, the fun. Oh, so much fun. 

I adore Abby. She is so cute and sassy. She is really caring, she puts everything she has into her clients and she has a confidence in her self that just makes her so lovable. Her spirit guide makes her all the more fun too. The way she gets her readings from her spirit guide is just so cute and makes me think her spirit guide has a real sense of humor. 

I also adore Detective Dutch. Handsome and arrogant but in a smooth way. I couldn't help but like him. The way they banter back and forth is just too much and I smiled throughout the read. I think they would make the cutest couple but at times butt heads so easily and of course this will lead to issues. I can see it already. They are both headstrong and stubborn and of course not as charming as they think they are. Well, maybe they are. I sure am fancied by the two of them. 

The mystery was written well and I really couldn't figure it out until I was meant to. So that makes me very happy with the read. I was more involved with the banter and the humor and didn't concentrate too hard on the mystery. I wanted to enjoy it for the whole story, not just the mystery since the story was also about Abby and Dutch. 

Loved it and can't wait to read more in this series.

  1. So glad you liked this one! I LOOOOOOVE this series!! I picked it up so long ago and it's been the best decision yet (it was likely in my pre-blogging [2009] days, so picking up a book on my own accord was a little more challenging! LOL!)

    I highly recommend her Ghost Hunter Mystery series too! Eventually, you'll cross paths with M.J. and her series was awesome!! It's completed now, but each book dealt with a mystery as well and some ghosts! They could get rather chilling at times too! When I started that series I was in college and would read each new release over winter break, and I read just about every book in one day! The last few were read while I was employed, so sadly they took longer to read! Lol!
