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

I actually have one more chapter to read of this book tonight, but it has been so much fun, as was the first in the series, that I had to take a moment and add it to my blog right now...more
I like the growing romance between Abby and Dutch as it is...more
I may not like every logic and detail that Abby seems to live by, but for the sheer sake of entertainment, I'm just going to overlook those few frustrating moments I had with her. Especially since the pacing was so fast that I didn't have time to really think about...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'.
