Shirley Damsgaard – Ophelia & Abby Mysteries Reading Order

About the series:

Thirty something Ophelia Jensen wants to live a quiet life as a small town librarian. She’s created a comfortable existence with her kooky, colorful grandmother Abby, and if it were up to her, they could live out their days—along with Ophelia’s dog Lady and cat Queenie—in peace and quiet. But, to Ophelia’s dismay, she and Abby aren’t a typical grandmother/granddaughter duo. She possesses psychic powers, and Abby is a kindly witch. And while Ophelia would do anything to dismiss her gift—harboring terrible guilt after her best friend was killed and she was unable to stop it—threatening events keep popping up, forcing her to tap into her powers of intuition. To make matters worse, a strange—yet devastatingly attractive—man is hanging around Ophelia’s library, and no matter how many times she tells him she’s sworn off men forever, he persists. Soon this handsome newcomer reveals he’s following a lead on a local drug ring, and then a dead body shows up right in Abby’s backyard. And much as Ophelia would like to put away her spells forever, she and Abby must use their special powers to keep themselves, and others, out of harm’s way.

Will there be an 8 in the Ophelia and Abbey series?

I enjoy reading about Ophelia and Abby, and am looking forward to book eight. Book seven leaves too much dangling in the end not to have a eighth book.

I am worried that Shirley has given up on this series. Anyone heard any news?

Hey there! I just stumbled across your blog and had to comment. Love your site and reviews!

I adore the Abby and Ophelia series by Damsgaard. I wanted to let you know Shirley Damsgaard is now writing under a pen name too! Her pen name is Jess McConkey… she just released her second book “The Widows of Braxton County”. It is amazing and I think you’d really like it, especially if you already know and love the writing style. It was just released yesterday… you should check it out! :)

Was wondering if there will be an eighth book in the Ophelia and Judy series? Last book published was 2010. So we need more books in this series.

Anyone heard anything about this series? I cannot find anything about why it just dropped off.
