Doom With a View by Victoria Laurie
Challenges: Paranormal fantasy Romance, series challange, Cruisin through the cozies
My rating: 4/5
Due to the economy people aren't spending as much on extra expenses and this means Abby's business is suffering. When the FBI asks for her help with a case she accepts, as long as her PI friend Candice can also help. While Agent Gaston believes in her and wants her help, the lead Agent in charge (and Dutch's boss) Agent Harrison does not believe in what Abby can do, even when she proves herself time after time.
The FBI is trying to find three kids who have disappeared, all of them are the kids of Senators from different states. They are trying to find the kids before more disappear.
I believe I say this every time I review a book in this series and I'm going to say it again: I love this series and it's one of my favorites. I really like Abby's character. I think she's fun and has a good heart. I like a lot of the secondary characters as well, especially her boyfriend Dutch.
I thought the story for this book was good, Abby was faced with somebody who doesn't believe in what she does and I liked seeing her react to this. Of course, she was also working with somebody that did and that helped too.
If I had anything negative to say regarding this specific story it's that the behavior of Candice and Agent Harrison was annoying, their reactions to each other was annoying. They bickered a lot, with Candice trying to stand up for Abby and with Harrison being against using them. It just carried on too much and could have stopped long before it did.
I still loved the story though, regardless of what did bother me. I think by now we all know I like a bit of paranormal in my books and so of course I love that Abby is psychic, it really makes for a fun cozy.
