Sense of Deception (Psychic Eye Mystery #13) by Victoria Laurie
This is an adult mystery/thriller novel (Rated PG-13)
(Four Deceptive Hearts)
In New York Times bestselling author Victoria Laurie’s newest Psychic Eye Mystery, Abby Cooper senses a convicted killer is innocent, but she’ll need hard evidence to save the woman before it’s too late…
A ticked-off judge has tossed Abby in the slammer for contempt of court, and during her brief but unpleasant stay she learns the story of a condemned woman who is facing a far more serious sentence. Skylar Miller has been found guilty of murder and faces the death penalty. Everyone believes she’s guilty, including her own family and her ex-husband—everyone, that is, except Abby, whose finely honed intuition tells her this woman doesn’t belong behind bars.
With the help of her husband Dutch and her friend Candice, Abby launches into her own investigation to clear Skylar and find the real killer. But after a final appeal is denied and Skylar’s attorney scrambles for a stay of execution, time is running short—and the list of suspects keeps growing. There’s no margin for error as the life of an innocent woman hangs in the balance…
I really enjoy this series. It’s fun and light-hearted. I know I can count on Abby stumbling her way through an investigation.
This installment wasn’t a disappointment in that respect. I did figure out who did it early on. I thought the motive was flimsy. Anyway, I can’t say more without giving too much away. I think the choice of killer might have been to throw the reader off, but it didn’t really. I am glad it was fiction.
I look forward to another installment of the series. Dutch was in the book but not. Oscar was really the one in the supportive role with Abby this book. But I love how Dutch and Abby’s marriage was real and how Abby knew what she had to do to help keep the marriage going on a good foot.
Elizabeth Michaels did a good job with narration.
My book boyfriend is Oscar.
