Pure fun, light cozy, I got to the killer before she did. ( )

Congratulations to author Victoria Laurie for an original storyline. Having protagonist psychic Abby Cooper thrown in jail for contempt of court was a great way to start off SENSE OF DECEPTION. Having Abby share a cell with an accused death row murderer and Abby’s psychic sense telling her the woman is innocent when no one else believes she is, was simply inspired.

The story was full of energy and intrigue. There was lot of action and many road blocks as Abby and gang try to find the real murderer. What seemed an impossible uphill battle, was resolved in a surprising and satisfying reveal.

For those who read book 12, FATAL FORTUNE, and were disappointed, I think you’ll find SENSE OF DECEPTION is back on track and up to the standards you have come to expect from this author.

I pointed this out in my last review of a book in this series, but it seems to have fallen into the “cozy” mystery genre. For readers who like their cozies on the true lighter side as cozies should be, this series may not be to your liking. Don’t get me wrong, this is not a hardcore thriller. However, anyone who enjoys an edgier mystery, that doesn’t mind some “language” and such, as well as a slight a paranormal flare, you’ll really like this book and the Psychic Eye Mystery series. ( )

Book description
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 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.
