Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye, is having a hard time getting over a gunshot wound from her last case-especially because she didn't see the shots coming. Out of work and second-guessing her abilities, she tries to get back in the saddle by helping her boyfriend Dutch with some of his FBI cases. And soon enough, her intuition returns-with a vengeance.

This is the 5th book in the series. I am still going Strong with this series, even though the main character bugs me quite a bit at times… other times she cracks me up and I adore her. What I enjoy most are the mysteries and this installment took me in a bit of a different direction… the mystery is solved but not take care of. At least one of them. There seems to be a on going plot forming. YAY! I do love those.  This wasn’t my favorite of the series but it was still fun and I enjoyed the read

Abby and Dutch are sort of living together as she starts to heal from her gunshot wound. OF course things aren’t perfect, the cat and dog do not get a long, Abby is bored, and Dutch is pushing for more time with Abby. Dutch does what all good boyfriends that are FBI agents do, he brings home some cold cases and Abby begins to look through them… this causes some trouble and a wild good chase and the introduction of quite a bad guy. Abby of course heads for trouble and her and Dutch have misunderstandings and lack of communication. Nothing much has changed there.

I feel like I am saying the same things over and over about this series so I am going to shorten this one with points of likes and dislikes.

  • The mystery is good as always

  • Love the pet interactions

  • Love the introduction of a new character… Candace- a private eye who helps Abby out.

  • Love the problematic romance. Just because it it cracks me up and makes me roll my eyes all in the same scene.

  • Love the fact there is an ongoing plotline now.

  • Abby got on my nerves a little more with her deceit and lies and hiding things from Dutch. He’s not going anywhere and yes he wants to protect her but she always knows he can’t stop her. Just be honest with the guy.

  • The fact that Abby has commitment issues. Sometimes this seems out of character… she wants a commitment.. .nope she’s too independent and needs her space… just make up your mind woman.

  • Abby just acts stupid at times and I know she is much smarter than this.

So as you can see more likes than dislikes. And the likes are strong likes… loves actually. So this series is still going strong for me. Short review but not sure what else to say that I havn’t already said. Love this series and I will keep on reading on.

Even with it's faults... Still loved it.
