The two stars are for Candice, since it was nice to see that character filled out a bit.

But if this had been the first book of this series I'd read, it would have been the last. She did neither of her main characters Abby (represented in this book as a flighty selfish self absorbed adloescent bimbette) or Dutch (Can't wait to see what he does if they have kids and she doesn't like one? put it in a car trunk and ditch it in a lake? or maybe foist it on his mother?) any favors in this book. I'm g

In this installment of the psychic eye series Abby finds herself in the middle of another murder investigation. Two, actually, and neither of them very recent. When Dutch asks her to look into some cases for him, she accidentally gets a hit on one that's already been solved. The only problem is, the wrong guy is doing time. Now Abby's gone undercover in a crooked loan business and it might be more dangerous than a bullet to the chest.

I thoroughly enjoy this series. I haven't rated it very high b

This was my first read of Victoria Laurie's Abby Cooper mysteries and it was entertaining, cute, fun and had a good crime theme going on. I, like some others, don't read romance novels, but I liked the slip in for Abby's relationship with her boyfriend although he does put up with a lot of her "stuff". She is quirky. She does seem a rather spacey woman to get herself involved with such dangerous villains. Lucky she stays alive during it all. A light spoofy kinda read, I think. Being a psychic my ...more
One of the things I enjoy about this series is that the characters have to live with the consequences. Abby got shot in the last book, so she is still having some problems. Candice her client/friend has moved to town and now she has a professional partner in investigating crimes. There was more mystery/detecting than the previous book. I enjoyed reading about Abby trying out to be a real sleuth going undercover for the first time. I also really liked that Candice is a kickass no-nonsense type g ...more
Another great Psychic Eye book. In this book Abby is recovering from the gunshot wound that she received in her last book. She is staying with Dutch and is having a hard time trusting her intuitive powers since she feels that they let her down when she got shot. In steps Candice, her PI friend with an offer that Abby just can not refuse, and which helps to get Abby right back into the thick of things. She helps Dutch with a couple of FBI cases while at the same time works behind Dutch's back wit ...more
While the storyline of this book was not as good as previous ones, the dynamic between Abby and Dutch and Abby and Candace makes up for any lacking direction. I love Abby and Candace together, working to solve a case. Abby's radar skills and Candace's PI skills work so well together and they manage to solve two old cases in one book! And Abby and Dutch together is so awesome. While they both frustrate each other they definitely love each other and want to be together which is so sweet and fun to ...more

Abby's story picks up three months after her terrifying ordeal in Colorado. The last case blindsided her when her "guides" didn't warn her about about the impending horrific outcome she was about to face. Healing was a process she never thought would include psychological well-being as well. After three months of living it up with Dutch, her caretaker and lover, she avoids calls like the plague! She finally accepts a call from a long time client and private investigator, only after Dutch refuses ...more
So this is my least favorite in the series but I still do love the series. The reason because Abby is very unlovable in this one. After Dutch takes care of her for 3 months as she recovers from her gunshot wound, she does nothing but lie to him. If the things in this book were actually happening..I would have dropped her faster than I could say see ya. We also have Candace joining the gang and with the both of them, they do nothing but lie. To add salt to the wound, Abby moves out and wa ...more
A really good story, but I'm getting sick of Abby's lying and trust issues. Time after time after time she keeps secrets for the dumbest reason. I might get lying at first, waiting till she has more info, but I think both Dutch and Milo have proven that they will accept her intuitive leaps. They may not be able to act on the right away - cause, you know, law - but they're willing to listen for the most part. Even if they don't want to believe it. I hope this dynamic starts to change, otherwise t ...more
Crime Seen is the fifth book in the Psychic Eye series, chronicling the life and times of professional psychic, Abby Cooper. I advise reading from the beginning of the series as each book's story line occurs after the events of the previous book. Note: review may contain spoilers from last book.

Abby is having a difficult time recovering from a gunshot wound to the chest, gotten on her last case. After spending the last three months holed up with Dutch, Abby is getting physically stronger
Professional psychic Abby Cooper has been recovering from her near fatal shooting by staying at the house of her boyfriend, FBI agent Dutch Rivers. Abby's body is healing, but she is reluctant to go back to work as a psychic because she questions why she didn't foresee that she would be shot. To help Abby in her recovery, Dutch asks her to help him solve a couple of his cases using her psychic powers. Abby agrees and finds that it's just the medicine she needs. But she accidentally comes across ...more
In Royal Oak, Michigan Abby Cooper has physically recovered from almost dying from a gunshot wound, but mentally remains despondent as her psychic skills failed her. She remains in the house of her FBI Agent boyfriend Dutch Rivers and has not returned to work doing readings as she suffers from post traumatic stress syndrome. Private Investigator Candace calls to rent space from Abby while Dutch asks her to read three cases that have stymied him. Dutch's former partner police detective Milo menti ...more

Crime Seen begins with Abby living at Dutch’s 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. She’s convinced that the man in prison for the crime is innocent.

Abby’s private investigator friend, Candice, moves to town and she and
I love Victoria Laurie's' Physic Eye Series! This book was no exception to that or to the series itself. I have enjoyed all of her books and the first 4 every book kept getting better and better! I was although a little disappointed with this one, there was less mystery and more romance, don't get me wrong I love the mystery romance novels but I liked how she kept the romance kinda a mystery as well, it's like the heart of the book was romance with a little mystery, I much preferred it the other ...more

This series never ceases to amaze me. I love it and is quickly becoming my favorite series. So fifth book of Psychic Eye Mystery brings more action and thrill. Im glad our heroine toned her attitude down a bit here, though there are occations when i wanna shake her.

Oh and I LOVE Dutch. Im glad they reconciled on the fourth book. He's just sweet and im glad they are finally trying to compromise when it comes to their relationship. Relationship sure aint easy.

And just a quick note, and im not com
In Crime Seen Abby is staying with Dutch while she recovers from her injuries. He gives her a few case files to look at to see if her "guides" offer any tips or leads he can follow. He and Milo are preparing for the parole hearing for a man who confessed to killing a cop. These two cases become mingled when Abby searches for clues. Not sure if her psychic mojo has been lost or not, she's uneasy about starting back with her clientele. So, to save some money, she offers to share space with her fri ...more

I didn't have Killer Insight so I decided to jump right to the next book Crime Seen thinking maybe it could be read as a stand alone. It was a mistake, I
I don't know why I'm still reading this series, because I really am on the fence about whether I like Abby or not.. leaning more towards the not side. And definitely NOT when it comes to her boorish overbearing boyfriend. The only recurring character in this series that is likeable is Abbys sister Cat. I really LOVE Victoria Lauries Ghost Hunter Series and am paitently waiting for the next one to come out. Maybe that is my problem. I compare Abby to MJ whom I love. Abby just seems weak and const ...more
I did not like the anti-cat sentiment in this book. Virgil was just doing what any cat would do when a stranger and a dog move in on his turf. Abby handled the whole thing completely wrong and in the end, so did Dutch. If I had a significant other treat my cats like Abby treated Virgil, he'd be out. And if I had to choose between him and my cats, I'd choose the cats every time. I think Dutch made the wrong choice.

The fifth installment in the Abby Cooper series is really good. As usual I like Abby’s character, and I’m glad we get to see more of her friend Candice, because she’s a great character and a great addition to the series.

The mystery this book was really good and really well done, keeping me guessing up until the very end. It was really well done, and I liked the fact that Abby got to do some under-cover stuff. It put her more in the action and more in the line of fire which I think was cool becau
Abby Cooper, psychic intuitive, teams up with her friend and actual Private Investigator Candice in Crime Seen. After three months of recuperating from a bullet wound, Abby is itching for some independence from her boyfriend/nurse maid, but is reticent to get back into her day job. After all, if her psychic powers didn't keep her from getting shot, could she really trust them at all?

Another great tale from author Victoria Laurie. I am loving the development of the relationship between Abby and
Crime Seen is the fifth book in the Psychic Eye series featuring Abby Cooper.

Abby is recovering from her injury received while in Colorado and a bit hesitant in returning to her office. Her sometimes customer and good friend Candice, a private eye, asks to rent the extra office in Abby’s suite and suggests they partner with each other.

Abby’s boyfriend, CIA agent Dutch Rivers, asks her to help him with a few cases he has hit a brick wall on. When she accidentally tunes in to the wrong folder, o

This is the 5th Abby Cooper mystery book. I love a good mystery, and this series always has a good one... and a whole lot more too.

I picked this book up off my bookshelf on Monday night, and finished it last night. I was really hooked on it. Man, couldn't put it down and wanted to get back to it.

I really love Abby. She's such a kind hearted and honest character. Of course, I also love Dutch and all the other regulars in this series. They're just like old friends, and it was time to catch up agai

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.

4 sta
3.5 stars. There were several moments when reading this book when I couldn't help but say, "Oh, come on now." Abby's behavior a couple of times bordered on adolescent. One has to wonder how Dutch puts up with that. Still, I can't stop reading this series.
The only way you could watch the sun set over Lake St. Claire is if you were in Canada.

Lake Michigan is on the west side of the state and cannot be seen from suburbs north of Mack Avenue on the east side of the state.

I really have to wonder why an author would set a book in a place where she knows so little of the geography and is so unwilling to look at a map. It also doesn't speak well of her publishers who should have caught those egregious errors.

I understand in a later book, the author mov

Once again a great book. Love her. She is human and has human emotions that she needs to overcome. She is not all knowing and how many of us in life have to try to figure things out, even when they are us.
I'm normally okay with occasionally glossing over some unbelievable stuff in books but I'm having trouble overlooking the multitude of things that the character(s) have done in the series that should totally have gotten them killed. There was a point in the story where I just wanted to stop reading and I actually did stop about halfway and read the entirety of some other book but I came back and after awhile, things got less annoying and I ended up enjoying the ending. I like the series, I guess ...more
Kathy Steffen
I enjoy cozy mysteries but like a little edge and complication and this series delivers. Abby is a fully realized character--I like her but she has flaws that get her in trouble and make her feel like a real human being. Conflict is not only with her situation and solving the crime, but also in her relationships with people. There is enough darkness (read that as realism--not blood and guts but some hard situations and moments) to make the reader care whether the crime is solved or not. The plot ...more
Abby Cooper and her boyfriend Dutch are sharing Dutch's place while Abby recovers from being shot. Abby finds the quarters a bit cramped and is eager to return home. Her friend and sometimes co-worker Candice moves to town to start her own P.I. business and convinces Abby to pose as a new employee at a fishy mortgage company while they try to figure out who really killed Miles' old partner.

Once again, Abby is up to her sneaky tricks, but at least this time around she's listening to her psychic c
