I bought this on a whim because it was on sale, but I wouldn't have finished it if I were paid to read it. The doughty heroine is a wretched amalgam of teen angst and New Age conceit, and manages to convert the truly awful things happening to her clients into yet more reason to obsess over her own personal melodramas. The narrator is too old a voice for the character, but along with the author can still not distinguish between the silliness of the premise and the seriousness of the plot events . . . which end up being merely a platform to inflate the very hollow protagonist yet further . . .
This is the second book in the series and I listened to the first story as well. I really enjoy the main character and really enjoy the series so far. This is very light and breezy reading with good main characters. Compared to the first book, the story was just a little too fabricated for me. Nevertheless, I already have the 3rd book downloaded.
I like Abby even though she's flawed in more than one way. But the narrator gives her a quirky voice and she's just funny at times for no other reason then how a line is said. These mysteries so far in the first two books are simple and easily solved although the the second was a little more complex. Abby's reasoning makes sense most of the time and when she fails that makes sense too. She doesn't rely solely on her intuition allowing her intelligence and flaws to show. Again these mysteries aren't for the hardcore problem solver. It is a fun read and enjoyable listen. Although so far she seems to be unconscious at the end of both books which I hope isn't a pattern as that would get boring quickly. I'm going to keep reading these for a while longer and hopefully continue to enjoy this unusual hero with unusual abilities.
I listen to so many audiobooks and it absolutely ruins the book when you do not have a good narrator. Not so for this narrator ... very good!
Given her main character the intelligence of a normal woman. Maybe Abigail got hit in the head a few times between books?
I really enjoyed the first book in this series but not sure I will go for a 3rd. This sequel has portrayed the main character as almost witless, not at all as savvy as even a normal person would be, let alone a psychic! She comes off as someone with no forethought to her reactions to situations, not taking the precautions any thinking human being would take. Very disappointing.
