Better Read Than Dead (Psychic Eye Mystery #2)
So much happens in this book. It was hard to believe it was only 296 pages. I flew this book again like I was hooked on book crack. I loved it. I love Abby Cooper and Love Dutch. I really think Victoria Laurie is one of my new favorite authors. I can't get enough of them right now. In this book you deal...more
Next chapter: continuity. The reading room seems to have grown by a foot. Added another window as well.
Another nit-pick that I caught in the last book as well: using "phase" instead of "faze." Thankfully, this was corrected later in the story. Also, I thought Kendall was her sister's friend but I cou...more

I am really enjoying the life of Abby Cooper, the clairvoyant, intuitive psychic. While she has special talents, I find her very human. Of course, she is human – she is not magical, just psychic. However, I find her very...more

So i have the same complaint i have with book 1.
The relentless, really moody and easily angered heroine. She can be a bitch and most of the time she can be irrational i want to slap some sense into her and tell her to freaking grow up! *BREATH IN, BREATH OUT*I keep wondering why author thinks its appealing to have a really stubborn heroine. Some author should know the difference between 'stubborn' and 'bitchy'.

Abby finds herself in the middle of non-stop action but she uses her witty psychic skills to solve the crime and get out of the mess....more
Better Read than Dead was a suspenseful, riveting, at time heartbreaking adventure. For most of the book I was on the edge of my seat and more than several times my heart went out to Abby.
The intuitive/psychic angle gives a very original twist to the stories.
I thought that the character of Abby was even stronger, more well defined in this book.
Now, as I’m about to read the third book of the series, I’m curiou...more
Then I realized I should go back to my UFs now and use this series as my in-between... Obviously I jumped t...more
