As a fan of the Psychic Eye Mysteries and Victoria Laurie, I eagerly anticipated Killer Insight, and boy, it is GREAT!
This outing, Abby Cooper, raw from a break-up with hunky Dutch, goes to a childhood friend's wedding in Denver. The Denver family has been a major part of Abby's life, a surrogate family so to speak. Abby is asked to be a replacement bridesmaid when one of Ellie's (the bride) bridesmaid suddenly leaves.
In the course of Abby learning about the circumstances of the diappearance of the first and subsequent disappearances of other bridesmaids, she and her crew get to work to help.
She sees her childhood friend, Duffy (Ellie's brother), and he has grown to be a sexy Sheriff and that chemistry plays greatly in the story.
This outing gives a greater range for Abby and her talent. She is a more rounded person and maybe it is the change of scenery, or the dealing with family and the engaged couple. Whatever, I couldn't wait for the next page!
Ms. Laurie alway gives us insight to what is is like to be a psychic and its responsibilities. I enjoyed her explaining her preparation to do a reading and zeroing in on her gift.
Page 108 shows her process - and the analogy of her getting in the zone, like Tiger Woods does when he is on his 'A' game. That concentration is pure discipline to keep yourself focused on the job. Really makes things easier for the reader who has not had much experience on that end, and her process of meditation and asking for help with Angels and her crew to help her give the information needed to be said, is fascinating.
The climax of the book is stunning and gives us a clue of what a NDE feels like - not going to spoil that -
There is a sneak preview of the next of the series, Crime Seen, that starts with Dutch asking Abby to help him with his crime investigations - Dutch was once skeptical of Abby's gifts but now he sees the potential in her using her talent for his investigative work. Should be another great read - AND Ms. Laurie is introducing a new Ghost-Buster series, the 1st titled What's a Ghoul to Do? Can't wait!
As I have said before in previous reviews of Ms. Laurie's books, I visited her website and had a reading with her - I think many would find a reading with her to be very helpful.
On top of that Ms. Laurie is a delightful gracious young lady with great gifts.
