Excellent series. Abby is a little annoying sometimes when she insists on putting herself at risk like the girl in a B movie who learns there's a monster in the basement and rushes down to check it out, but the author's "voice" is very readable and the plot is good.
First there was Abby Cooper, Psycic Eye. Then Better Dead then Read, then A Vision of Murder. Now Abby is back and going to visit family & Friends in Colorado in this 4th installment. I love this series, the only trouble with it is I can read it in 2 days and then I want MORE!
This is the first book of the series I've read and just loved it, I had a very hard time putting the book down. I just love the who dun it psychic mixture give the who dun it a better spice then the norm. When you finish reading the book you truely want more. Can't wait to read more about Abby and Dutch....
4th in series, Abby decides to help a chilhood friend by flying to Colorado to be a bridesmaid in her friends wedding, after her and Dutch have a nasty breakup on Valentines day. One by one, the bridemaids start dissapearing and Abby does her best to help Duffy (her friends' brother) help solve the crimes. Abby faces her own death and questions "why didnt I see this comming"
This is a great addition to the series, with non-stop action and a few laughs thrown in. Abby is torn between Duffy and Dutch but at the end, she realises whom she is meant to be with.
This is a delightful series, and I cant wait to get started on the next one. It is best to read this series from the beginning.
This book was not my favorite. It felt like the author was trying to cram in as much drama and murder as she possibly could, which got a little excessive, in my opinion. Not pleased with the killer- I don't think it made any sense, and was just sort of... random and weird.
Not bad, not great, but I'll continue reading the series!
I was ready to give up on this series, this book was the last chance for me. I was getting so tired of the Dutch/Abby soap opera, because that's what the relationship was like, an annoying, whiny, immature soap opera. So, I was sooo glad when they broke up and Abby went to Colorado. "Finally!", I thought. But guess what, it's not Dutch/Abby I don't like, it's the way the author writes romance that I don't like. I will never understand a woman who is attracted to a man that treats her like a child. And it seems that all Abby's love interest are going to go down that road. Duffy wasn't as bad as Dutch, but seriously, when he called her "Dollface", I threw up a little in my mouth. I don't know if I can stomach any more of Ms. Laurie's "romance", which is to bad since I like the mystery and the psychic twist.
The prose isn't especially good. The characterization isn't anything to write home about. But I'm still enjoying this series for the concept: a psychic involved in mysteries. This is book four and is probably best enjoyed when read in order.
Fourth in a series and so far the best one. Very quick read, could not put it down. Oh what a great mystery,had me guessing all the way to the end. Abby is asked to be a bridesmaid and heads off to Colorado were the other bridesmaid keep disappearing.
Just recently became acquainted with author Victoria Laurie. I have already read Bk 1 thru 7 and have thoroughly enjoyed every one in her series.
I'm an avid reader and Victoria has rapidly become one of my favorite authors. One of those authors who draws you in to the storyline from the beginning and holds you through to the end and makes you want more.
When a childhood friend of Abby's from Denver, Colorado, finds herself short one bridesmaid, it doesn't take a professional psychic to see the opportunity for a much-needed getaway. But one bridesmaid after the next is mysteriously flying the coop, and Abby's intuition tells her their final destination isn't pretty. With the wedding party falling apart and her gift of sight never quite so foggy, Abby has to save the date, and herself, from becoming the next taffeta-clad target.
