Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye

And here's your next one! This is another good plane book; I never got bored of it and was able to finish it in the Seattle-Maui flight. It's a mystery, and with the way it was written I think would appeal to any age group. Without further ado, I give you Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye by Victoria Laurie.
Abby is a psychic. Not one of those cheesy carnival psychics that look into a crystal ball or anything, but a real honest-to-god clairvoyant. She's grown up known as a freak, predicting house fires the week before they happened and warning her professor in college to get his heart checked out (guess who didn't listen and had a heart attack right after?). She mostly gets pictures, phrases, and emotions, and using those she can roughly tell a person's story and give them tips for the future. Abby runs a business in Royal Oaks, Michigan where she reads clients and gives them advice.
One day, she learns that Allison, one of her clients, had been murdered not too long after their last session. Through a detective named Dutch Riverswho manages to be extremely cute and infuriating at the same time Abby discovers that the killer knew about Allison's appointment with her and may come after her next. Despite Dutch's warnings, she decides to get to the bottom of Allison's murder. Along the way, some romance may spark between Abby and Dutch (hey, what can I say? It's a chick novel). All the while, the killer remains unknown. Will Abby's intuition be able to save her this time?
Yeah, that wasn't the best review I've ever done. I chalk it up to post-vacation brain. So, if you weren't quite convinced by the review, just take my word for it. The book has entertaining and well-written characters, and a plot that will keep you guessing till the end. It's part of a big series, which I'm already planning on reading. It's a perfect mix of mystery and supernatural! Get it at SHS.
