Book Review/Giveaway Sense of Deception by Victoria Laurie

 Title: Sense of Deception
 Author: Victoria Laurie
 Series: Book 13 A Psychic Eye Mystery
 Publisher: The Penguin Group
 Genre: Cozy Mystery
 Format: Hardcover
 Source: Received for review from Publisher
 Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars
 Reviewed by: Marlene

 Abby Cooper, Psychic and private investigator has done it this time. Losing her cool in court and landing herself in county lock up for the night for being in contempt. As Abby finds herself sharing a cell with a death row inmate looking at her last appeal before being sentence to death. She is faced with the fact that the woman is innocent and needs her help. Enlisting the help of her private investigator partner Candice, friend FBI agent Oscar and lawyer Cal they will race against time to help save this woman from in a sense being murdered herself.

 Along with helping this death row inmate, Abby also has to try and redeem herself in the eyes of the FBI for blowing their case on a serial killer when she had her outburst in court. Due to the judge declaring a mistrial and she being slandered for her psychic abilities, she now has that on her conscious. Soon Abby is swamped in evidence, no where leads, sloppy police work and the heavy burden that no matter how much she pulls from the ether it may not be enough to save this woman.

 I loved this story, I truly felt for the woman on death row. To spend ten years unjustifiably held in prison and to be sentenced to death for a murder she didn't commit against a person so dear to her heart would be torture. I also liked the way it was played out with the many possible factors that an innocent person could be imprisoned, Money, sloppy police work, circumstantial evidence, etc.

 I am a big fan of Abby, she is one of my favorite female characters. I love how she just won't quit and her quirky sense of humor as well. Ms. Laurie writes her characters so well, you love the ones that are good and she makes sure you don't like the ones that are bad. Looking forward to the next installment.
