I'm about halfway through the first psychic eye book 'abby cooper: psychic eye' and I'm so glad I got this series! I have the first 2 and coworker (we're on nights this week) is reading the 2nd one  now(she read the first one last night while i was finishing up anohter book I'd started).she liked it a lot and I'm really liking it too. she writes funny though it's not silly...just the way she writes and this character is so likeable and makes the psychic stuff seem so real and down to earth...anywyas, back to reading!

ETa: fnished the first and now over halfway done with the 2nd..these are really good and I'm glad I found out about them! she writes so funny..not stupid funny but I chuckled in several places and the woman's not an airhead like some. just fun reading. at least so far!

thanks! Ihave those on my shelf ready to go...I had read the first in teh flower shop mysteries a few months ago and since I had the next4 I read the 2nd one this morning and it's really di fferent from the psychic eye ones. they ahve the same name though - abby! but I like the character in psychic eye better ...this one in the flower shop ones acts like everyone around her is imperfect and she's perfect yet in both books she does the stupidest things I've ever seen...i finally relaxed and somewhat enjyed it when I realized I didn't care if she got kiled or not LOL! guess I was tired but gonna try the 3rd and just read it from the same point of view and degree of relaxation!
