Series Sunday

Series Sunday is a new bookish meme hosted by yours truly, Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along. 
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Post a review/recommendation on your blog, FB, Twitter, Goodreads, or Shelfari pages.
  • Share your review/recommendation by posting the link in the comments section below.
  • Include the title, author, and name of the series so that other Series Sunday participants can add the book to their TBR Lists.
Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye (Psychic Eye Mysteries, Book 1)My Series Sunday pick is Abby Cooper: Psychic Eye, the first book in the Psychic Eye series by Victoria Laurie. Abby Cooper is a Royal Oak, Michigan based P.I. (psychic intuitive). It starts off with the main character explaining her abilities and why she left the boring banking business to start her own business as a P.I. The psychic readings were entertaining in the beginning. Then Abby got the side-eye when her insight didn't pick up on the death of a client, or that her blind date is the lead detective on the murder case. I questioned the 60+ five star reviews on Amazon when Abby was watching the news of a kidnapped little boy, visualized he was dead and the mother was to blame, but didn't consider going to the police. Instead, she dismissed it and continued getting dressed for a blind date. Really?! While Victoria Laurie's writing style is good, I just couldn't connect with the main character or the story within the first fifty (50) pages, which is my own personal limit.

I predict that I will not finish this book in the near future or the rest of the series. Chickadee, however, feels otherwise. She enjoyed it and claims the story got better. If you've read it, please persuade me otherwise or share your thoughts.
