We predict amazing success for this brand-new mystery series starring Psychic Abby Cooper.
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.

I am so glad I took a chance on this book. Don' t let the psychic part keep you from reading the book. It is realisticly incorporated in the book but isn't the focal point. Abby does do psychic readings and gets guidance from her "guides" which made this book very interesting and believable. There is just a little bit of romance but not enough to ruin a good mystery. Will be listening to the second in this series.
I think it was the narrator, not the book. She just sounded obnoxious but it wasn't the words, more the tone. The psychic bits were pretty interesting. The mystery and romance, not so much.
I'm not sure if it was the narrator that made Abby sound so unrealistic with that perpetual perky toody-good-shoes tone, or if it was the writing. Abby sounds like June Cleaver from "Leave it to Beaver" meets a psychic on pharmacuticals or who did way too many drugs in her hippy days. I had to stop when Abby went on her date. It was unbearable. I wish you could get refunds. I'd want a refund.
Ok...the story isn't that bad...I actually like the character very much...however, the narrator should sound like this lady does. Her voice is so annoying...I would like to hear more Abby Cooper tales...but they all have the same narrator...so. Oh well.
Abby is a young woman being voiced by an obviously much older woman. She sounds as though she's a late middle aged housewife.
Very one dimensional in both writing and narration.
I listened to this book a few weeks ago and waited to see how I still felt before reviewing it. I'm still not sure. I liked the subject and plot. Having a lot of experience in this area, I wasn't thrilled with a lot of the facts and techniques presented. The author clung to several repetitive phrases that began to feel like broken glass to my ears after the fifth chapter. As for the reading, it was fine. Maybe this was a first book. I haven't checked. Maybe future books in this series will be better. If you have the money to throw around, try them and see. I'll look for something else.
Fun series that is entertaining. Sometimes tiresome when Abby does things even someone who isn't a psychic would know better. But still entertaining for a beach read!
This a good book, it kept my interest whereas any others just put me to sleep :)
love this writer we live in the same neighborhood so that added to my being interested in her.. I was even born in the building (used to be a hospital) she has her office in LOL. !!
A friend recommended this series to me as one of her favorites of the genre. The story seemed like it had some merit but the reader made it very hard to get into it. Even being new to the character, I didn't feel it was a good match. Maybe a better one to actually read rather than listen to...
.....the narrator was really, really annoying. This is only the second time in my listening career (10 years) that I stopped listening because of the voice reading to me.
