Another fantastic story about Abby solving crimes using her psychic abilities. In this story Abby finds a partner to share office expenses with. Her new partner is a PI, and they set out to help each other's businesses by sharing cases. The first case leads them to some really dangerous killers.

I ADORE the Psychic Eye series, but this one for me was a dissapointment. It felt uninspired and the mystery didn't really grab me like the past did. It may help that I'm not a big fan of Dutch, and he plays a larger part in this book. I also would have liked more Dave in it, but that's just me :) It was still good but in my opinion did not live up to the earlier books. The mystery was honestly kind of dry and dull, and the plot just kind of went through the motions- there wasn't even as much interesting psychic activity as in the past books. I'll still faithfully read this series, I just hope I connect more with the next. This was the first Abby Cooper book that wasn't a keeper for me.

Also, why did they change the cover theme so much? I loved the other ones and how they all matched and really fit the plot- this one is just very generic and has nothing to do with the story.

Really liked it...the whole series is a refreshing reading, fast paced, witty, and told without filthy language..Victoria Laurie is a great writer for us folks that like a good murder mystery with psychic overtones, with a surprise ending and fun. Can't wait for the books # 6 and 7 to come out.

Crime Seen begins with Abby living at Dutchs place while she heals from the gunshot wounds she received in Killer Insight. Abby seems less sure of herself in the beginning and her business seems to have dwindled down to nothing. While looking at some closed cases for Dutch, she comes across a cold case of a murdered police detective and her radar goes haywire. Shes convinced that the man in prison for the crime is innocent.

Abbys private investigator friend, Candice, moves to town and she and Abby become business partners. Abby relies on Candices P.I. skills and contacts to help her solve the murder. She goes undercover in a mortgage company to try to uncover clues that will reveal the true criminals, which unknowingly puts her in the killers sights.

I really enjoy this series, but Crime Seen has been my least favorite so far. Abby shows more uncertainty in this story and though I understand the reasons behind it, I didnt enjoy witnessing it. Dutch also came across more controlling than usual in this story and I saw a side to Milo I didnt care for. Fortunately for me, these problems will not prevent me for continuing to read this series and hopefully the next book will be better.

It took me a bit longer to get into this one than the others, but once it got going I was hooked as in all the others in the series. Good Book!

Good continuation of the series. Abby is really a likable character even if she doesn't always do what you want her to. This book was a little slower than some of the others, but it picks up after the first couple chapters.

Wow, I don't remember Abby being such a ditz or Dutch being such a doormat. Abby was almost unlikable here, lying to and manipulating Dutch and being an idiot who really deserved to be shot. The dialogue between her and Candice was laughable at times ("I feel ya."). This has been an enjoyable series, but this book really disappointed me. I'll give her another shot, but if the next book is like this one, I think that will be all for me.

I enjoyed this 5th installment, where Abby teams up with her friend, Candice, (a Private Investigator) to solve several cases. Abby goes undercover at a Mortgage firm and helps solve the crime of who murdered Milo's old partner, and the murder of a CIA agent.

There was a lot going on in this book, so it will pay off to pay attention to the story line. I adore this series and cant wait to start the next!

Over the top drama for a dull cold case! Hard to keep up with story line due to lack of interest plus it was predictable.

Excellent read as are all of the Abby series. The characters are well done. They are all people I'd like to know - well, not the bad guys. Makes me want to go visit a good psychic! I am reading the next book now and will snap up any more that come out. Just don't start it at night when you have to get up early, you may not be able to put it down!

So enjoying Victoria Laurie's series of Psychic Eye. I started with Bk 1 and rapidly read through to now Bk 5 and on my way to the remainder in the series. Her writing style holds your interest and is full of lots of excitement and makes you want to not put the book down. She's a new author for me but definitely at the top of my list of favorites.
