Grave Sight by Charlaine Harris

Harper Connley was struck by lightening at 15.  It left her with a spiderweb of red on her leg, a weak left leg, and the ability to find dead bodies and know what they died of. 
With an ability like that you have to make the most of it and she does, along with her brother, who acts as her manager.  They travel the country getting paid to find out what happened to cause the end of life.
When called to find a body in Arkansas things get a bit complicated.  She becomes involved in the town much more deeply than she ever wanted to participate to put it mildly.
If you are a Harris fan you could see Harper living in Midnight, Texas or being friends with Aurora Teagarden solving cold case files.  Very enjoyable read.

Vision Impossible by Victoria Laurie

FBI, CIA, CISI if it has initials it is in this installment of the Abby Cooper Psychic Eye mysteries.
Abby and Dutch are sent in as spies to retrieve a new weapon that can "see" a persons aura.  Think James Bond with a psychic element.  The last twist is a bit unexpected which always makes for good reading.
Not as good as some of the others but not a bad read, probably better if I had not been reading the series so quickly.  Sometimes a break is a good thing.

All the Little Liars by Charlaine Harris

After reading bad reviews I was a bit worried about buying the book. Thankfully I did. Well written as always, enough twist and turns to keep the pages flipping and a fun read. Yes, I had my suspicions about the outcome but unless you are reading Agatha Christie that is going to be true and really, it is a mark of a good writer to give all the clues.
Looking forward to the next installment in the series of Aurora Teagarden.
