Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Clues are what every investigator needs to succeed...and that's where Abby Cooper has an unorthodox edge. You see, sometimes, like it or not, clues just come to her. Abby is a different sort of P.I. She's not a private detective, she's a psychic intuitive…working with a crew of spirit guides to offer her clients the benefit of her glimpses into their future. She believes that free will is the only weapon against the destiny her visions reveal; she also believes that foreknowledge can give a person the power to change the future events she sees.

Of course, with such power comes responsibility, especially when what Abby sees is a matter of life and death! When Abby's talent gives her insights into the plans of a serial killer, she faces double jeopardy. She's determined to stop the killing…and that means finding a way to convince the authorities that she's neither a kook nor a killer. Unfortunately, in her line of work, proof can be remarkably hard to come by, until it's too late. And the danger grows when the killer proves easier to convince than the cops.

The author's bio for Victoria Lange reveals that this talented writer is a psychic medium who has assisted police in cold-case investigations. I, for one, can't wait to see what the future holds for the fascinating Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye mystery series. Sue Stone

    Great Book!!

    I loved this book! I read Laurie's Ghost Hunter Novels first and wanted another series to read when I was done. I didn't know if I'd like it but went ahead and bought the first book in this series. Boy am I glad! It was very entertaining! It's packed with humor and suspense. Very good mystery! If you like paranormal/psychic mystery you'll love this series!

    Hooked on Abby Cooper!!

    I picked up this book at a used book store on a whim and boy did that pay off. I instantly fell in love with the main character Abby Cooper. She is tough when she needs to be and endearing other times. Victoria Laurie, writes about Abby in such a way where you feel as though she is not just a character she is a friend. As soon as I finished the first one I ran to Barnes and Noble and picked up the rest of them. Sadly I have read them all and am now eagerly awaiting the next installment coming in June. This is excellent series and I highly recommend it for anyone who enjoys a good female detective mystery with a psychic twist.

    Fantastic! Great! Super!

    What a great read!! Abby Cooper is a fantastic character who gives us a great insight into the psychic mind. The characters are wonderful and the plot is suspenseful. I was introduced to Abby Cooper in Drop Dead Blondes and immediately bought this book and then Better Read Than Dead. They were all fantastic!! I couldn't wait till A Vision of Murder came out and enjoyed that just as much. I am now anxiously awaiting the next book due out in Septmeber.

    VERY FUN READ!!

    I truly enjoyed this novel. The characters were very likeable and well written. The story kept my attention from page one. The romance was set on a slow pace which is good, and the mystery was very interesting, leaving enough clues to keep you interested.

    Great Book

    This series is one of my all time favorites. The whole series is lovely, and the great part is that you don't have to read them in order. Her outlook on her abilities is awesome, and she takes life as it comes. Victoria Laurie did a great job of this. Not once did I get bored during this book, or want to skip through pages.

    Ms. Laurie, stick to your day job

    This book is absolutely horrible. I picked it up because the plot seemed interesting, the characters intriguing, and it seemed like one of those funny, brain candy types of books I like to indulge in once in awhile. I was seriously disappointed. The plot is not bad, but where the **&%$@#!! was the editor? A good editor (heck, even a half-way decent one) could have edited out all the extra nonsense (and there's a lot of it) and shaped this into a relatively interesting story. But I saw no evidence that this had ever been edited by anyone, including the author. First, Ms. Laurie has a punctuation obsession. One of my biggest pet peeves is the overuse of exclamation marks,and my second biggest pet peeve is the use of the combo punctuation: !!??. God how I hate that. It signifies to me that you are NOT a professional writer and are, perhaps, about 12 years old and still dot your "i"s with little hearts. This book is full of characters who rarely say anything without it ending with a hysterical "!!!???". Plus, Abby is not all that interesting. You would think she would be, since she is a "psychic intuitive," but she isn't. I don't like her and that is the author's fault for not developing her character into a person I can relate to or find interesting. The lame on-again/off-again romance with Dutch the hot police detective (how cliche--which is why he isn't interesting either) is boring and makes me wonder if Ms. Laurie meant to write a romance novel instead of a--well, whatever this dumb novel is. I don't even like the dog and generally I like animals in a story, but the author refers to the dog more than the crime/mystery that Abby should be solving. I know when the dog eats. I know what the dog eats. I know when he is happy or agitated. The dog is mentioned too much. Plus his name (Eggy) is stupid. The psychic aspect of the novel is also not as interesting as I thought it would be. Since Ms. Laurie is a real-life psychic (at least she thinks she is), I figured this aspect of the novel would be more fleshed out, but it's not. Abby calls her spiritual guides her "crew," which makes me think of the guys in orange hats and vests who pour asphalt and block off the fast lane on the highway. Why crew? It makes them/her insights sound ridiculous and not to be taken seriously. Also, every time her "crew" tells her that someone is lying to her (or she lies to someone else), the author writes this phrase: "Liar, liar, pants on fire..." Now, the first couple of times I thought that was funny and reasonably witty/clever. After about 20 times of it, reading those words is simply IRRITATING. Couldn't she come up with something else? The pace of the novel is also bad. Abby gets the feeling that she should leave town (which is dumb anyway--way to mess up the suspense) and then there's big long section of background information about her sister, their parents, all stuff you don't care about in the middle of a supposedly suspenseful novel. This novel is BORING. There is no suspense. Because events are set up so clumsily, you know when something bad is going to happen and you pretty much know what it is. There is very little mystery to this mystery novel. I HATED almost every minute I spent reading this terrible novel. It is badly written, poorly constructed, and by the end you don't care two figs about the characters or the mystery. I won't buy another "Psychic Eye."

    Great mystery

    In Royal Oak, Michigan, Abby Cooper tries an online dating service since she hasn¿t had a date in years. She believes that once she proves she is a psychic, men are scared off. Her date with Dutch goes smoothly but when she tells him that the child who was abducted in the mall is dead and the mother and another close relative are the perpetrators he cuts her off. She doesn¿t hear from him for a week....................... Abby senses she is being followed and she sees the stalker. The next day he shows her his gold shield and tells her the mother and brother is in custody. He and his partner spent the last week investigating Abby and psychics are not in his belief system. Another of Abby¿s client is brutally murdered; Abby feels guilty that she didn¿t give Allison another appointment when she requested it. Taking it upon herself, she learns her sister supposedly committed suicide shortly before her wedding but Abby¿s sixth sense says she was murdered by the same person who killed Allison Now she has to find out who he is and give the name to Dutch........................ This is the start of a great new series due in large part to the heroine who is not afraid to use her powers to help people in crises. Up until Allison¿s case she never worked with the police because of their skepticism but once Dutch gets over the shock, he accepts Abby and her powers completely. The mystery is well constructed and there is plenty of action in this amateur sleuth tale but readers will love ABBY COOPER, PSYCHIC DETECTIVE because the storyline is well written and refreshingly unique........................

    This is the first book from this author that I have read. I liked the book. It was different from what I have been reading lately. I thought that I would try this book. I liked the way the author wrote the book. I like that Abby is psychic. I think that being psychic is something that few people know much about. I do feel, however, that Abby and Dutch both overreacted over some things throughout the story. I will probably buy another of the Abby books though. I think that the stories are something that hasn't been overly written about, and that's a good thing

    12/4/12 This book in incredibly well-written except for the personality of the heroine. In the romance world she is "TSTL," too-stupid-to-live." She did not impress me with her intelligence or maturity.

    A fun, quick read with engaging character. Psychic powers included lie detection and clairvoyance and mostly hung together once concept accepted. Detoured awkwardly a few moments into too much detail on what eaten and assorted decor things; deftly avoided the dreaded info dump thing; and, despite heroine's talents people sure manage to drop dead around her. Romantic interest instead of cardboard character was one that was all over the place (I guess to add mystery or set up romantic confusion?) and not quite believable a police detective would have the "issue" that created a big hurdle for their relationship (can't be more specific without putting in a spoiler). But, very good story, story arc and pacing and not deepest mystery or grimmest. Will be reading the next book on this series.

    Light & Funny!

    I am a die-hard romance reader but my mom being the mystery buff gave me this book to try out. Needless to say, I was not disappointed and I can't wait to start the next book. If you mix together the average girl, some mystic abilities and a big heart then you'll get Abby Cooper. I could hardly put this book down the entire time I was reading it.
