Overview


In New York Times bestselling author Victoria Laurie’s newest Psychic Eye Mystery, Abby Cooper is trusting her intuition and heading to Sin City to bet on a friend’s innocence....

When police show Abby surveillance video of her best friend and business partner, Candice Fusco, shooting a man in cold blood, she can’t believe her eyes. And when the cops tell her they think the victim has ties to the Mob—and perhaps Candice does too—she can’t believe her ears. Surely there is a logical explanation. But Candice is nowhere to be found.

Abby decides the only way to find out the truth is to go to Vegas herself—which may be the biggest gamble of her life. Once in town she begins to uncover a rigged game of dirty double-dealing where the stakes are no less than life and death. And if she’s not careful, Abby can forget about ever leaving Las Vegas...alive.

Publishers Weekly
05/19/2014
Laurie ventures into thriller territory with her far from cozy 12th Psychic Eye mystery featuring psychic Abby Cooper (after 2013’s Deadly Forecast). Early one morning at home in Austin, Tex., Abby gets a voicemail from her best friend and business partner, Candice Fusco, who asks that she hide a document stashed in a safe in their office. “It’s not how it looks,” Candice claims, but a security tape soon surfaces showing her shooting a man point-blank in an airport parking lot. The police suspect that both the victim and Candice, who has disappeared, have links to organized crime. Abby’s FBI agent husband, Dutch Rivers, and Candice’s new husband, FBI agent Brice Harrison (who is also Abby’s boss), assist in the effort to find and exonerate Candice. Laurie portrays the mobsters involved in too mild a light, but she adds welcome psychological depth to Abby, who must function more like a PI than a psychic. Agent: Jim McCarthy, Dystel & Goderich Literary Management. (July)

Can a psychic have missed the truth about her very best friend?Happily ever after isn’t what Abby Cooper expected. Though things are going well with her husband, Dutch Rivers, despite his sometimes-dangerous work for the FBI, something’s up with her best friend, Candice Fusco. Candice’s quickie Las Vegas wedding to her beau—Dutch’s boss, Brice—was much less eventful than Abby’s nuptials were (Deadly Forecast, 2013), and everything seems to have settled down. So when Abby receives a mysterious phone call from Candice with some dire requests in the middle of the night, she’s not sure what to make of it. Her first impulse is to spring into action to do as Candice asks, even though she must hide what she’s doing from Brice and Dutch. Abby and Candice have been friends for years, so Candice must have a good reason for her enigmatic requests, right? Just hours later, Abby is shown a video of Candice meeting a stranger in a parking garage and killing him with a single shot. Maybe there’s more to the story than she knew; maybe she never knew Candice as well as she thought. Determined to clear her best friend’s name, or at least learn the truth, Abby heads to Vegas, where she must find out if she’s been duped by Candice for as long as they’ve been friends.Although Abby’s psychic visions—which offer tantalizing hints about Candice’s past—carry the potential for a more revealing story, Laurie sticks with what she does best, concentrating on her heroine’s snappy inner monologue without letting too much hinge on plot details.

    Victoria has done it again! The newest book in her Psychic Eye

    Victoria has done it again! The newest book in her Psychic Eye series literally grabbed me on page one and made it very hard for me to put down. It starts with a phone message from Candice to Abby at 3:04am saying that it isn't what it looks like and to trust her ... and it ends, well I can't tell you how it ends, you need to read the book for that. What I will tell you is that it is a fast paced adventure as Abby tries to help her friend while keeping the FBI and APD (Austin Police Department) in the dark and YES that includes Dutch and Brice as well. While I found it a tiny bit disappointing that Abby even once doubted Candice, I can't say I blame her as the evidence keeps mounting and Candice isn't able to defend herself. That being said we really get to see Abby on her own in this book. It is refreshing to see that she can still stand on her own and figure out a problem without the rest of the "gang" standing next to her. I truly loved the book and would recommend it and the entire series to anyone who enjoys mysteries (emphasis on cozy mystery).

    So let's get the obvious out of the way. Yes, both my wife and I

    So let's get the obvious out of the way. Yes, both my wife and I are friends with Victoria. Having said that, I just sent her a text telling her that I thought this was her best book, and she has written some very good ones, good enough to be a NYT best selling author. I could simply use a lot of superlatives at this point, and hope that others will support my friend by buying her book. But, let me explain that my favorite fiction authors are those who develop great characters and then let their personalities play out in great stories through their works. Parker's Spenser, Higgins' Sean Dillon, Cornwell's Scarpetta are all on my bookshelf. Victoria has in this book both the compelling character (s) and the great story and I'm pleased to recommend Fatal Fortune and what I believe is my talented friends very best.

    Charm, Chaos, and Comedy... That's what one expects when picking

    Charm, Chaos, and Comedy... That's what one expects when picking up one of the books in the Abby Cooper Psychic Eye series. Fatal Fortune doesn't disappoint. Abby Cooper-Rivers is up to her psychic eyeballs in trouble, again. This time her partner-in-crime-solving and bestie, Candice Fusco-Harrison, is the center of a murder investigation, where SHE is the suspect. Freshly back from her elopement and honeymoon in Vegas, Candice is caught on camera shooting an unarmed man in cold blood. After receiving a cryptic voicemail from Candice, Abby Cooper, or is it Rivers?? (Still a sore spot between her and her hubby, Dutch) Is Candice AKA Cassidy a cold-blooded killer, even possibly an assassin? Could she have fooled Abby AKA Sundance and her 'crew' as well as their FBI husbands? Abby follows the trail from Austin to Vegas determined to find out what exactly is going on. Determined to believe in her best friend, she risks her life (as usual) to get to the truth. Will Cassidy's cryptic texts be enough to help her or will the FBI find Candice first?

    My love for Victoria Laurie books started out when I found one of her books on my local library on the sale rack. The cover caught my eye. After I read that book, I went crazy looking to see if there were any others and I bought them all! 6 others at the time and I spent 2 days doing nothing but reading those books. Out of the 12 Psychic Eye Mysteries, this one has been my favorite. This book includes lots of action, omg moments, confusion, and love. love between best friends and love between married couples. Two of my favorite things in this book is the "swearing doesn't count when..." statements. I can see Miss Laurie saying this in her personal life. She has that look that says "I can kick butt but I'll be a lady doing it." My second favorite part is the "Hello Dolly" statements. It reminds me of Gilley from Miss Laurie's Ghost Hunter series. Every time I see that statement, I can literally picture Gilley in my mind and it makes me laugh out loud. Fatal Fortune had me saying "omg", "aww", and laughing out loud that my man said "the new book came out, huh?" He said I'm only vocal with books when it's Victoria Laurie's. Buy and read Fatal Fortune if you love mysteries that leave you on the edge of your seat, leave you second guessing the outcome, make you laugh out loud, and cherish love between couples and best friends. You won't be disappointed!

    As an avid reader, one of my favorite things in the world is a b

    As an avid reader, one of my favorite things in the world is a book that’s part of a larger series with repeating characters.  Picking up where the last book left off always feels like visiting old friends, and it’s always fun to check in with the gang to see what’s new.  It’s no surprise, then, that I was excited to get my hands on the newest Abby Cooper mystery, this one entitled Fatal Fortune.




    In this twelfth installment of the Psychic Eye series, Abby finds herself defending the reputation of her best friend Cassidy against what can only be described as damning evidence.  Cassidy is caught on surveillance footage killing a man in cold blood.  But, as Cassidy tells Abby, “It’s not how it looks.”  




    When even Cassidy’s FBI husband doubts her innocence, it’s up to Abby to feel out the ether and use her intuitive abilities to find Cassidy and clear her name…even if it puts her own life and freedoms at risk.




    Fans of Laurie’s Psychic Eye series are sure to love this latest edition.  It’s fast-paced and has the reader sitting on the edge of his seat throughout every page.  The twists and turns keep the reader guessing, and it’s truly not until the last few pages are turned that the reader fully grasps the complexity of planning that casts suspicion on Cassidy in the first place.  




    New readers to this series can rest assured that they can pick up in the middle and not feel the gaping holes of missing background information that often accompanies a book in the midst of a larger series.  One of the things Laurie does best is bring a new reader up to date on the characters without boring long-time fans with what feels like extraneous information.  She gives exactly enough information to refresh the memories of old readers while bringing new readers up to date.




    Fatal Fortune is definitely a good read and one I’d recommend to both longtime fans of this series and those unfamiliar with it.  It’s simply a great summer read!
