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 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

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

I have a pet peeve where one half of a couple hates the other's pet and are seen as justified in doing so. So while I love this series of psychic mysteries, and will keep reading, I am 100% annoyed that Dutch gave away his cat(!!!) and got a dog, because Abby hated the cat. Not okay. Sure, he gave the cat to his mom, whom the cat knew, so he didn't just drop it off at a shelter, but seriously. Rennovate your house to build her a closet, man, that's cool. But giving away your cat and swapping him ...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

This is the 3rd or 4th book of Victoria Laurie's that I've read. I love the fact that the main character is psychic. I love the story lines. And I especially love the character of her boyfriend Dutch. But the main character of Abby Cooper, the psychic, is disgusting. She has such a horrible personality. She is such a whiny bitch it's hard to understand what Dutch sees in her. She's so immature and offensive I just can't read any more of this series. It's really too bad. I don't know why anyone w ...more

3 1/2 stars. I like that the author seems to be developing the character a bit. going to take a break from the series for a little while and see when I return to it, if I fall in love again.

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

My last book of 2016!

I'm so happy I finally get to read the three books in this series that I missed the first time around. This series is just a blast to read, and I always feel like I'm catching up with old friends when I pick one of these up.

One thing that I wondered about, though. This book mentions Abby's "best friend" Theresa but I swear I don't remember this person at ALL from the later books. Did every friend she had get dropped for Candice?

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

What Is It About:
Considering it's the fifth book, I needn't introduce Abby so I'll just skip straight through to the plot. Milo's old partner was killed in the line of duty and his killer is going to be up for parole. Abby accidentally reads into the file and learns that the guy didn't actually do it. He's the fall guy for a big criminal that is known for the police but none of his crimes stick. Abby bring Candice on board so that they can investigate him without Dutch and Milo getting involved.

So far I've really liked this series. The characters are relatable and the mysteries keep me guessing. This one has to be my least favorite. Previously, Laurie established Abby as a strong independent woman who can take care of herself. But in Crime Seen, Abby becomes a caricature. Abby must now answer to Dutch simply because he is her boyfriend. And it's really irritating me. She allows herself to be treated like a child and this whole Lucy-Ricky dynamic is very 1950s.[return][return]Abby is be ...more

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.

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.

I like this series of books. They feel good and don't stress me out. I want to relax when I read.
I do think Abby was flighty and immature in this book but she had been shot and was feeling a bit churlish. She and Dutch were both acting more adult at the end of the book and I am glad the cat found a home to be happy in and Abby was able to make a home with Dutch. Was very confused by the addition of a puppy with all the upheaval in their lives. I thought that was not a smart thing to throw in af

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

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
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
