    Well finally after a few not-so-great stories in the series we get a good one. The author of this series has some really good murder plots but falls short in weaving a good romance plot. To say it straight Abby and Dutch's romance basically is very blasé and with him missing most of this book it concentrated more on the murder plot which helped raise its star rating.

    The Abby Cooper Psychic Eye Mystery series is a lot of fun. I've been burning through these books at an alarming rate - about one a day - while recovering from a flu. I forget all about the pesky coughing when I'm reading Abby. While I found the mystery in the first book too predictable, they became much more engaging for me after that.

I've been burning through these books at an alarming rate - about one a day - while recovering from a flu. I forget all about the pesky coughing when I'm reading Abby. While I found the mystery in the first book too predictable, they became much more engaging for me after that. This one is my favourite, possibly due to my predisposition to love all things Las Vegas. There are lots of reviews that discuss plot, so instead I'll touch on style, craft and the reading experience. Victoria Laurie has mastered the art of building a mystery. The story is layered with lots of twists, while still being light enough to be brain candy. Abby behaves true to character, ignoring direction, getting in trouble and ultimately saving the day. We get to know her business partner Candace a lot better and see more of her sister Cat. There are times when the three of them are like an expanded version of Thelma and Louise - it really kept the pages turning. The one small thing that occasionally takes me out of the story (in all the books) is Laurie's handling of romantic scenes. She has clearly made a decision not to use profanity or write sex scenes. I can certainly respect that, but several times, I've found the scenes with her boyfriend Dutch cut abruptly short as she employs a bit of a 'fade to black' approach when intimacy comes into the picture. Not that I am looking for great long scenes, but the lack of even more emotional encounters between Abby and Dutch can at times make their relationship seem a bit flat. This might also be why this is (so far) my favourite book in the series, because Dutch is absent for most of it. Niggles aside, I highly recommend the series if you like paranormal mystery with a touch of fun. You'll get it here in spades.

No deus ex machina implausible rescues by psychic revelation here, but some help, some inexplicable untranslatable messages that hinder and help. Abby Cooper is a great detectve and the growing number of people in her life are wonderful, real, and you hope to see her again and again.

    This time Dutch's cousin, Chase goes missing so Dutch and Abby go to Las Vegas. Shortly after they arrive Dutch goes missing and Dutch's immediate boss at the FBI shows up and starts investigating Dutch as if he is the bad guy. Abby goes into hiding but has two friends along to help her. The book is a lot darker than others in this series has been. The book was a fast easy read.

    Different than the rest of the series, and a lot of fun. Cat, Catherine, and Abby team up with a cop's wife for literal running from the law and in hiding. There's an urgency and almost heist feel with this one. Dutch is out of the picture for most of the book for a valid reason, and the location is changed to Las Vegas. Was hard to put down and one of the best of the series so far. Different than the rest of the series, and a lot of fun.

Dutch wants Abby to promise that if the investigation goes south, she'll head home to safety, but when the chips are down, Abby won't fold without a fight. This is the sixth book in Laurie's "Psychic Eye" series, and the first review I've done of any of the books. Basically, they fall under the "cute/cozy/slightly-paranormal mystery" category. They don't take long to read, and they don't take a lot of brain power, either. Yup, my "popcorn" books that I've referred to in past reviews. This one really isn't any different, except that it is the first one I found myself being somewhat disappointed in, and that seems an odd thing to say, given that my expectations weren't that high in the first place. I've gotten used to Laurie repeating herself when she's giving exposition about how Abby's abilities work, her "crew", what goes through her mind when something is true/false, etc. While it's probably not nearly as noticeable when you have to wait a year between books, it would still be nice if authors could find a way to fill in that backstory in their series' entries without sounding like carbon copies all the time. But I digress.... I know that Abby's visions don't always make sense, and I know that she's not always the sharpest crayon in the box, but hello - the things she "misses" are so obvious, it's not even funny. Take Dutch's "mysterious illness"; I don't hold a medical degree but I knew within the first two scenes what was wrong with the guy! Then there's the issue of her new cellphone; Dutch gave her this gift in the previous book, and while she wasn't thrilled, she was grateful later on because said phone is equipped with a GPS device, meaning it could be used to track someone's location. Got that? Our girl Abby is desperately trying to find Dutch at one point in this book and remembers aha! the cellphone has GPS! But in the very next chapter (after she fails to find said boyfriend), she forgets that the cellphone can be used to track her and gives away her location to the bad FBI guy. Really? Really? I had a hard time buying that myself. Then there's the issue of the casino. Yep, Abby's "crew" helps her win a sweepstakes, including money and two Mini-Coopers, pretty much the same way that they helped her pick lottery numbers for Dutch's ex-police-partner, Milo. Um, I don't know whether I believe in psychic abilities or not, but I sort of feel like if they are real, there would be a lot more lottery winners. Just saying. By the time Abby, her sister Cat, and her PI-office-partner Candice, have won those prizes, the believablity factor has dropped several quotients. Honestly, I felt like I was reading about another hapless heroine, the one from New Jersey that's always blowing up cars. There was just too much "madcap adventure" feel about this book, and definitely not enough "plot". I'm hoping when I pick up the next one it's better, or that's the end of the series for me. Guess time will tell.

    Abby goes to Vegas! I really liked the Vegas setting, it was nice to get away from Michigan and have Abby be in a couple places I've been before (like the Luxor). It was also kind of a relief to not have Dutch in most of the chapters (he disappears 30% in, and a lot of the book is Abby trying to both find him and figure out what's going on). The more books Laurie writes and the longer Dutch and Abby date, the less I like them as a couple. (view spoiler)[The best part of the book for me was when Abby goes to Vegas!

(view spoiler)[The best part of the book for me was when Abby, Cat and Candice are running around Vegas, trying to lose the Feds and disguise themselves/earn money/find Jane Doe. (hide spoiler)] A couple gripes I have about the book: 1) Laurie needs to find another word to use other than "smirk." I think she used it 5 times in one chapter. I also don't think my definition of the word is what hers is. (For example, in chapter 3, she uses it to describe when someone is humoring someone... I think that's not how I would use it.) 2) (view spoiler)[Jane Doe, the young woman found in the car crash with Dutch's car and cell phone, turns out to be a dancer named Misty who is pregnant with Dutch's cousin's baby. Dutch's cousin, Chase, is actually a bad guy, and he killed his client, Ricardo Delgado, for some diamonds out in Arizona and has been keeping Dutch in a crypt so he can steal his identity. (Yes this is all a bit convoluted with a lot of players who I honestly had trouble keeping track of.) At the end, when there's going to be a shootout at the crypt, Chase yells at his girlfriend, "Jane!" Um, this isn't her name...wouldn't he call her Misty? Just something strange that apparently wasn't caught by editing. (hide spoiler)] 3) Finally, Abby is so dumb sometimes. She's trying to hide from the Feds, and she's holed up in her hotel room. Someone knocks at the door and she opens it to find Robillard, the man she's been trying to avoid. (We know from the last book that Robillard killed his colleague years ago.) Then, a few minutes later, there's another knock at the door, and she "peeks through the peephole." Shouldn't she have done this the first time? Things like this bother me, and it makes it hard to root for her. It's the same problem I have with Stephanie Plum in that the character doesn't seem to grow from past books. 4) Three characters in this book have gray eyes (Mrs. Delgado, Candice and Mrs. Kelton). This is something that has been bugging me since it seems every book I read these days has at least one character w gray eyes. See this:  "According to World Atlas, less than one percent of the global population has gray eyes, making the color incredibly hard to find." Read More: https://www.thelist.com/161384/the-tr...

    What a fun read. You learn more about Candice's background and I'm excited to see how her character plays out in future books. It was also nice to see Abby's sister taking a more active role in Abby's life. Of course I enjoyed Nora too. I must say that it would be helpful to have read the previous book in this series, as it picks up from an unresolved vision Abby had from book 5. I'm also looking forward to book 6 and see how things get developed with Abby, Candice, Dutch and the FBI. What a fun read.

One minute she's "reading someone", telling them things about their lives that prove she's a powerful psychic and the next she's questioning her visions. Of course, she only questions them when it comes to Dutch and those closest to her. Maybe it's that closeness that causes her to question everything. It feels very contradictory and out of character when it happens. These books are always a quick read about mysteries I enjoy trying to solve before all is revealed.

    Much better than the previous two in the series. There's still too much rehashing of plot here though. Why can't authors trust that if a reader is on book six of a series they most likely remember the name of the handy man, her sister, her boyfriend, and what a photograph of a dead person looks like to the psychic. One of the best things about these books is that they are very light, and can be read in a few hours.

    So far, this is disappointing me. Granted, it's a paranormal mystery, and bubble-gum fiction, but still. The psychic used to have some "rules" around her abilities. Now, it seems when she really needs to know something--to keep someone out of danger or from being killed, her "intuition" is vague and filled with images that are not always clear. However, when she wants to "prove" to someone she's a psychic, it's like she has access to a full vita on the person. Very annoying.... There are also parts So far, this is disappointing me.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I found this book in the series frustrating due to Abby's inability to recognize the need to get Dutch to the hospital. Still an entertaining read. I liked the new character Nora that was introduced, and it was interesting to learn more about Connie, her private eye friend. The psychic involvement is still interesting. It's a little hard to take though when she doesn't want to use her ability, or just plain misses what is going on right in front of her.

    WOW!! This is the best installment in the series, by far, at least so far!! This book had everything and more! The action, the characters, oh my god I don't know where to start. The main groundwork of the mystery includes some things introduced in the previous book, Crime Seen (book #5), but everything that was mentioned in that book is explained very well in this one! So there wouldn't be a huge need to read the previous book but just to have a better grip on everything I'd recommend it! Though wi WOW!!

Though with how tidbits of one mystery from a previous book were seen in this book, it makes me very excited to get into the later books of this series because I have to wonder if Victoria Laurie is going to utilize the multi-book story arcs again such as the ones present in this book and Crime Seen! Ok, onto the story. Abby and Dutch head out to Las Vegas!! Oh my god, if you're familiar enough with the character of Abby Cooper, and her friends, be ready for a hilariously grand ol' adventure! It was so much fun seeing how Abby and the other characters who later come into the story, who's names I won't mention as to not spoil any of the fun reveals, make their way across the city of Las Vegas intent on solving a mystery that is also being investigated by the FBI! I'm so happy I never read any reviews of this book beforehand so that I didn't have anything spoiled because as it reached the final part of the third act, I was in for many surprises! Victoria Laurie, you've FREAKING outdone yourself with this story!! The humor, THE ACTION, the suspense and the good/crazy/scary times had by the main characters all the while they were chasing down leads made this book an absolute blast to read! If you haven't started this series yet and you're reading this random review of the sixth book in the series, get started on it from the beginning!!! You're missing out!! The writing style just sucks you in and before you know it you'll be binge reading!

Sometimes I wonder if the author forgets that Abby has psychic abilities. I have a hard time understanding Abby's refusal to ask her guides for help when a situation becomes dire - especially in regards to someone she loves. But that would make quick work of the story and we wouldn't have all the fun of three zany women wandering all over Vegas on a wild crazy hunt that involves tracking down the bad guys, finding the imssing lovers/husbands/mobsters (there's a lot of people missing), and staying out of the hands of the cops and FBI both. Add to that a lot of quirky characters, and this book just gets more and more fun as it goes. Psychic Eye mysteries are light and crazy fun, so long as you don't mind suspending disbelief quite a bit. I like Abby and her sister, and am quickly coming to like her new partner and the even Dutch (which has taken some time to warm up to). While the mystery itself is nice and twisty, it does get a little predictable, but that can be forgiven because the rest is silly fun. If you're a fan of the series, then by all means, don't miss this one.

    3.5! This series is back to being good again. I wasn't annoyed with Abby at all this time and it had some very funny parts in it. I enjoyed the fast pace and excitement. The only thing that bothered me is the blatant heavy handed foreshadowing that the author seems to enjoy: "And it was that small decision ----(omitted for spoilers) that ultimately was our entire undoing" or "Looking back, I wish I could take every single part of that retort back, --- I had no idea how right I actually was."

    I had forgotten how much I enjoy Victoria Laurie’s Psychic Eye series. I started reading this series years ago and now I need to play catch up. Even though it had been a while, it was easy to just pick up where I had left off several years ago. Laurie’s characters are people you can’t help but pull for. She keeps the reader engaged throughout the entire story and makes the story hard to put down because you’ve got to know what happens next.

    This type of story just makes me wish I was a medium too. I thought this book was awesome, the intrigue kept my interest until the last page. I loved all the characters, including the villains. I find that the characters were dimensional, not just one type of person... Also, the wrap up of the story at the end was pretty cool, no loose ends which I like. I walked away knowing everything that went down and why it happened. Overall, a quick and fun read, lots happening and loved Abby's gift and what This type of story just makes me wish I was a medium too.

    The entire series is great, but Death Perception is a wild ride like no other. More surprises than I can count, ans so many time I was like "omg!" and had to look away for a second. Great plot!, HIGH action, good character development and the usual snappy dialogue we've come to expect. I've been getting these titles whenever and wherever I can, so I haven't been reading them in order, but it doesn't even matter. Terrific book, awesome series!

    I have read the series and so far Victoria has done a very good job with working with Abby and her side kick Candice along with her boyfriend, Dutch, who does believe in what she does. She always seems to have to prove herself to certain authorities but yes fun to read and hard to put down.

    This 6th book in the series for Ellie back doing what she does best. Using her powers, intelligence and sleuthing skills to solve a mystery. Dutch is a bit player in the story rather than the lead. I hope this is a taste of great things to come.

    What I enjoy about this series is that it is a great, mindless read. Some of he situations Abby gets herself into are just so absurd you have to stop and laugh.
