Abby Cooper, psychic eye, is back searching and solving mysteries. This time, she and her FBI boyfriend, Dutch Rivers, go to Las Vegas to rescue his cousin from kidnapping. In the process of investigating, Dutch disappears. A mystery from a previous book returns with a great deal of danger and menace. Abby along with her good friend Candace and her sister roll through Las Vegas, racing against time to find Dutch and unravel a complex mystery.

What might have been a cute gimmick has evolved into

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. 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 st
Abby Cooper feels her life has been most fortunate especially of late. She makes a good living as a psychic who advises clients with what to do about their problems although she censors the darker messages from beyond. She enjoys working with her best friend Candice Fusco on private investigations in which her spirit guides enable her to help her partner. However, it is her love for former FBI Special Agent Dutch Rivers and his belief in her paranormal skills that make her feel euphoric.

Abby Cooper has a psychic gift that allows her to know certain things about people including whether they are dead or alive. Dutch Rivers is Abby’s FBI agent boyfriend and has become convinced that Abby’s gift is real and no longer questions her visions.

When Dutch learns that his cousin Chase has been kidnapped he immediately leaves for Las Vegas and Abby insists on going along to help. Chase has been working as a bodyguard for Ricardo Delgado and both Delgado and Chase had disappeared. Delgado’
It took a while for Abby's FBI agent boyfriend, Dutch Rivers, to accept her psychic gifts as the real deal. But these days he knows better than to question Abby's visions. So when his cousin Chase is kidnapped after a bloody shoot-out in a Vegas alleyway, he agrees that her clairvoyant skills could be invaluable, and they both catch the next flight to Sin City. Abby's inner eye insists that Chase is still alive, but nothing else about the case adds up - especially Dutch's reluctance to involve t ...more

Abby's partner, Candice and her sister, Cat join her as she desperately tries to solve these mysteries. Having lived in Vegas, Candice has a contact for everything. With her know how and street smarts and Cat's unlimited funds, these three are unstoppable.

It was great seeing more of Candice and Cat's always

YAY! I am so glad to say our Abby is finally learning....

I was a little hesitant to read this because from my previous reading; Abby and Dutch's relationship usually make me cringe. I found Abby's character on the girlfriend department a little deplorable but the mystery and the thrill is good.

Still their relationship is one hell of a factor in the stories so i want it good.

In book 6, the thrill and the mystery is the same... it's been months since i last read the last installment, or it felt li
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....

Didn't like this one as much as the previous books. Not sure why. Dutch wasn't in it enough? Not sure that was it, but really can't put my finger on what seemed wrong.

On the whole, totally enjoying this series. Can't wait to get the next books to read them. While Dutch and Abby are all too human, and get into communication spats that bug me a bit, I really like these characters and am invested in their relationship. Hope it continues to develop. I think they are meant for each other; even thoug

Audiobook review**

Dutch and Abby are faring well with their new living arrangements, Candace is working out very well as Abby's business partner. Life couldn't get any better for Abby. And then...Dutch receives a call that his cousin Chase has been kidnapped! Dutch grew up with Chase, they're like brothers, and he goes into high alert after hearing the news. He and Abby hop on a plane to Vegas, where Chase lives, to figure out what happened and find Chase.

I had a harder time with this story than the others. Abby's behavior towards Dutch at the beginning of the story was summed up quite nicely when she called herself a brat. I couldn't help but question how this guy stayed with her. At the beginning of the book she shows such maturity and compassion towards one of her clients, but then turns around and acts like an erratic adolescent. That's what her behavior reminded me of throughout the book.

Then her abilities seem to wane when the plot needed t
This was one of the more enjoyable of the series.

It's definitely a light read, something to pick up when you don't want to have to have to commit too much to a book but still want to be entertained.

Another part of the novels that I enjoy is how the main character, Abi, stays grounded in 'our' real world. This is a novel about a psychic working with mostly 'normal' people. It isn't about uncovering some hidden world filled with myriad of supernaturals.

The result is books that veer well away from
Glitzy Las Vegas is the setting of this Abby Cooper novel, that involves a very sick Dutch and his kidnapped cousin, Chase. Abby, Candice, Nora, and Cat become the formidable foursome, who save Dutch' s life, solve the crime, and find the final solution to their worst lethal, legal nightmare, namely FBI Agent Robillard.
The novel was well written with a plot loaded with escape scenes to rival a James Bond movie. Abby and her guides worked as a well oiled machine, while Candice' s sleuthing and dr
Abby is back at it again in book six of the Psychic Eye series, Death Perception. This time the professional psychic takes her intuition to Vegas.

If you asked Dutch Rivers a little over a year ago, he'd swear that psychics were a hoax, and not to be trusted. But, since he's started dating one, Dutch has changed his tune, or at least he doesn't question Abby's talent. That's why, when an urgent call alerts the FBI agent that his favorite cousin has gone missing, Dutch doesn't hesitate to
Psychic Abby Cooper is just starting to build up her business again when her boyfriend, FBI agent Dutch Rivers, asks her to go to Las Vegas with him. His cousin Chase has been kidnapped after a bloody shoot out and Dutch is desperate to find him without involving the FBI. Dutch has his reasons for not involving the FBI – some of which Abby is aware of and some she knows nothing about. On top of everything else, Abby is worried when Dutch is struck by a mysterious illness. Soon Abby is in over he ...more

This time Abby finds herself on the opposite side of the law, thanks in large part to Dutch's boss. The one who was revealed to have killed a CIA coworker 30 years before. With Dutch investigating him for the murder, he's doing everything in his power to tie up all the lose ends. Including Abby, the only one to know anything about the murder.

As any of you who have read my previous reviews of Laurie's books most likely know, I am not a huge fan of Dutch. He's far too overbearing and overprotectiv

My enjoyment of this series has been kicked back into high gear with this installment. Dutch and Abby head to Las Vegas after his cousin and the man he was working for are kidnapped. Upon arriving in Vegas, the clues seem to lead to more than they originally thought.

All of a sudden, Dutch disappears without trace and Abby suspects time is running out for him. To make matters worse, the FBI and local authorities think Dutch is somehow involved in the kidnappings. When they turn up the heat on Ab

Death Perception is the sixth book in the Psychic Eye series by Victoria Laurie.

As always, things don’t go as planned and before long, Dutch is missing too. Abby knows she only has a limited amount of time to find Dutch, or he will be dead.

All the players are back in this fast-paced, action-packed sixth book of the Psychic Eye series. Dutch's cousin has been kidnapped and he and Abby go to Las Vegas to help find him and bring him safely home to his wife and baby. Then Dutch goes missing and Abby and her friend Candice and sister Cat must find him before the evil FBI Agent Robillard does.

I am really enjoying this author. The series is a lot of fun! Why are there so many shootings and hospitalization in the books, though?

I loved the introduction of Nora the housewife who was an amazing cook, shotput thrower, nurse, and more. She was quite the asset to the main characters.

The Vegas setting really worked for this book! Kudos to the author for making it a super setting for the novel.
I loved this book the best out of all of the psychic eye books. It was very absorbing. This may be one of Laurie's best novels written, yet. It was enthralling with lots of action, suspense, tension, deception and great emotional intensity. It was very believable; I found myself angry when Abby was caught in a bad position, sad when she thought she lost Dutch and energized when they were trying to make their getaways while the bad guy was gaining on them. It was entertaining like a good action m ...more
Abby takes her psychic skills to Las Vegas in "Death Perception." Unfortunately, the trip is all work and no play for Abby who is accompanying her FBI boyfriend Dutch to Vegas to search for his cousin who has gone missing under mysterious circumstances. It was excellent to see Abby in new surroundings again, especially in the glitz and seedy underbelly of Las Vegas. Author Victoria Laurie continues to create dynamic characters who are growing and alive with backstory, especially highlighting Abb ...more
3.5 Stars

Considering how much I hated the previous two books that I read in this series, I was amazed that I liked this one....

But Laurie did not stupidify her characters and the story was good..... There were some unbelievable things, but they were more for enjoyment and part of the suspense.......
Another great Psychic Eye Mystery.

Dutch and Abby head to Vegas when Dutch gets word that his cousin Chase has been kidnapped along with a wealthy business man that he was working for. As Dutch and Abby join the local PD to try to find Chase things get more complicated by the minute. Dutch is suffering from some sort of sickness and Abby keeps having dreams about his death. When Dutch disappears Abby calls in Candice and Cat to help her find him. The three of them go on a heck of an adventure to

Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books...

1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future.

2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author.

3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up.

3 1/2 STARS. I love this series. Abby is a fun character with quite a stubborn streak and a knack for finding trouble. This book though wasn't one of my fav's in the series though. I had a hard time getting into it at first and ended up putting it down for a couple of months. I decided to attack that pile o' books on my nightstand though and picked it back up. I'm not disappointed that I did. It was cute & action packed, but a little too many narrow escapes just in the nick of time for me. B ...more

Victoria Laurie manages to produce a very vivid type of writing while only using not a lengthy amount of words. Personally, I felt the book started off slow, but as I continued reading I found myself more into it. It's one of those books that definitely get better as it goes.
I am soo enjoying this series by Victoria Lauria...Depth Perception has just become my favorite in the series! I truly enjoy the main character Abby Cooper, although at times she does seem a bit far fetched. How can one person constantly get into that much trouble?

This book totally changed that though. It was keeping me on the edge of my seat and kept me up late reading a couple times. I read this book faster than I have read any other books in the series. Yes, I did find the scene where she wo
