Read A Timely Vision by Joyce and Jim Lavene as my first book for the Hooked on Books 24 hour Readathon. In this series opener, Dae O’Connell the mayor of her small beach front town and small business owner , has a psychic talent for finding lost or missing objects. Her quest for a missing object actually leads to a dead body and plunges her into the murder investigation. Along the way , she deals with a common criminal, a related cold case and a shady real estate developer all with the help of a couple of romantic interests. I enjoyed this and found it to be a good set up for a cozy series with a paranormal element.
As a side note, Joyce and Jim Lavene were a husband and wife cozy writing team. responsible for a large number of popular cozy series over the years. Joyce passed away last October and I believe that Jim is continuing writing.
