Posted by Jennifer in 5 Stars, Blog Tour, Cozy Mystery, Review / Leave a Comment



Professional psychic and FBI consultant Abby Cooper is about to face a murder scene that will put all her powers to the test. Her husband, Dutch, has a side business providing security and building panic rooms for wealthy clients. One morning, one of Dutch’s partners, Dave, goes missing…

Then two of Dutch’s clients are found brutally murdered inside their brand-new panic room, and most of the evidence points to Dave as the killer. With the authorities racing to find and arrest him, Abby’s got to use all her intuitive prowess to get to Dave first, discover the real killer, and save her husband’s business. This is one case where Abby is positive there’s far more to this mystery than meets her inner eye…



About the Author

I began writing my first Abby Cooper novel in the winter of 2003.  As a professional psychic of many years, I really wanted to portray an intuitive as a normal person – because we really are normal after all….we’re just a bit more “sensitive” than most.

Truth be told, even after Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye was published, I had no thoughts of becoming a full time professional writer too.  Back then I firmly believed that I’d write two or three books in the Psychic Eye series, and move on to some other hobby.

It wasn’t until I was finishing my third book, that I could truly appreciate how much joy I had in telling a story.  For me, there is almost nothing more satisfying than writing those final twenty pages of a novel after taking all my characters on something of a roller coaster ride.  And I live for those moments when, creatively, it feels like I actually got it right.

I suppose I’d better love what I do, because there are way too many ideas churning around in this head of mine for me to quit now! Of course, writing is work, but it’s fabulous work if you can get it.


Review of A Panicked Premonition

Review (5 Stars):  A Panicked Premonition was a charming addition to an already entertaining mystery series and I love spending time with these characters in each new story.  I loved how Abby and Dutch’s relationship is progressing and Dutch is building panic rooms for wealthy clients until his friend ends up missing and they find two dead bodies.  Abby’s intuition is on point in this mystery and you could see that she had her hands full trying to solve these murders.  This was a fun mystery and I hope to see more from Abby and the gang in future mysteries.
