Oh, my, Abby's so affectionate in her personal dealings throughout the series. I can't have enough of this fabulous series!

Can't wait for this book to happen.

Yes, I rate it 5 right away, before I even get my hands on it, while it's even being written. I do it because I can, because I want to and because I feel like doing it. Of course I will review my rating appropriately after I actually read the book. Though, frankly speaking, I don't think the rating will change as all the prequel books hav

While I like this series, the mystery was predictable. Once it was mention for the first of many times the characteristics of the criminals, I knew who the culprits were. And she kept hammering that detail a few more times. And I can't understand why they as smart women didn't put it together sooner. It was way too obvious. Plus the fact that they never considered that an option only made it more obvious. Anyway, if I heard about my radar and the explanations about it one more time, I would scre ...more

I've enjoyed reading this series, but for some reason, certain things about Abby really grated in this book.

Abby is thirty-seven years old and, as she frequently reminds us, considers herself a professional and wishes to be treated as such. Yet she too often has the speech and demeanor of a petulant teen. This comment covers it well:

"Candice makes me act the role of a grown-up more than anyone I know. It's totes annoying."

She also refers to things as "amazeballs." What thirty-seven-year

The premise of the books has promise and is interesting. The author knows how to write well and has talent. However, I found the main character totally unlikable and immature. She complains about everything, can do nothing on her own and uses the slang of a preteen (the rolling of her eyes, the constant sarcasm, the use of words like: amazeballs, obvs, totes, for reals). Abby is supposed to be 37 years old and successful, after all! I like my cozy characters clever, not mean-spirited and immatur ...more
The thing I hate about the future is that it's so freaking unpredictable.

Abby has basically been forced to report to the LA FBI division by Director Gaston to teach them how to be intuitive and to help close some cold cases. She is told that she is not allowed to take Candice, Dutch or Brice with her. Candice of course finds a way around that. Abby wins over an FBI agent but alienates most of the rest.

I have read most of the books from ( Victoria Laurie Victoria Laurie, in both this and her other series, and am usually entertained and somewhat informed. This, A Grave Prediction, "A Grave Prediction," was no exception.

I was glad that the focus was more on the interplay between the protagonist, Abby Cooper, and her best friend, P.I. Candice, and their detective/psychic detective work than on their respective romances, as in previous books.

Unfortunately, with one exception (a female FBI agent), all the othe

Recommends it for: fans of mysteries with a bit of psychic help!
Victoria Laurie’s A Grave Prediction (A Psychic Eye Mystery #14) has it all. By this I mean the characters include strong women (which I love), men who need to be educated to new possibilities, more than one mystery to be solved at the same time, and belief in what one thinks is impossible. The author is a “ a gifted intuitive “ who does professional readings, and she has put some of her personal experiences into her protagonist, Abby Cooper, who has just been assigned to go to LA and ‘teach’ th ...more

Laurie always writes a satisfyingly complex mystery. Tons of seemingly unrelated threads always weave together to make one cohesive story. This is my favorite thing about the series, and this tale dealing with bank robberies and future murders is no exception. However, Abby came across as way younger than her 37 years. Too much slang (that people her age do not use), too many nicknames, too much talk about Abby's unhealthy diet.

I decided it was time to get back to the Psychic Eye series as it's been way too long since I read one of Victoria Laurie's novels! As expected, A Grave Prediction was a delightful paranormal mystery read, light on the paranormal for this series since it stems from Abby's psychic abilities. But it's a series I've been reading for years and I love it to pieces! You can pretty much jump in at any certain point and follow along fairly well, the only thing you really miss out on are the personal con ...more

Where to start with A Grave Prediction...utterly fabulous, exciting and fun. I could not put down A Grave Prediction by Victoria Laurie for all the right reasons. The mysteries in this story were incredible and very well thought out, the setting, the intrigue and the relationships that continue to grow and get so much more interesting with each book are one of the reasons this is such a fabulous paranormal cozy series. This is a great "weekend getaway with you your best friends" type of book. Th ...more
I love most of this author's books. I have read and enjoyed all the other books in the series.
This one just did not do it for me. I agree with another reviewer, the trendy phrases Abby uses in the book just seem out of place..totoes, amazeballs,etc.... Also maybe I was just not in the mood for this type of story, but the resolution and things Abby and Candice had to do to make it happen just did not sit well with me.

This is a fantastic series! While I don't know how much I believe in psychics, I haven't closed my mind against the idea either.

What I liked about this book especially is that Abby Cooper, a psychic who helps the FBI, is sent to the FBI office in LA to help them with some cold cases. Once there she meets with great opposition from the good old boys. She is able to get one female agent as an ally. Abby is supposed to dig up clues psychically on some serial bank robberies, but instead her intuiti

In the acknowledgements, Ms. Laurie thanked her editor, who she said worked on the previous two books. It shows, and she should thank her. I was getting annoyed because in several of the prior books, Abby ignored her intuition, which led her to trouble. That seemed out of character and made Abby appear stupid. In the last few, I've noticed she specifically mentions always trusting her gut, even when what it's telling her doesn't make sense. That seems far more in line with Abby's character and w ...more
Taken from the jacket cover. "Professional psychics learn to deal with skeptics, but Abby has to prepare herself for a steep uphill battle when she's sent to Los Angeles to help train FBI officers to use their intuition. The Bureau is struggling to solve a series of bank robberies in which the thieves made off with loads of cash but left no clues." There is more of the synopsis but I am not adding it.

I don't want to let go of this series because I do love the characters a lot, and their stories have meant a lot to me. I want to keep reading! But I feel like they've also gotten more judgmental and mean-spirited over time. I'm not in love with them doing bad things for the right reasons, especially when those "right reasons" are debatable. Some things really resonate, other things feel like... we should've gotten past them. I like Candice and Abby a lot! As friends, as equals. I don't need Can ...more

Victoria Laurie fans will be thrilled (as always) with this new installment in the Psychic Eye Mystery series.

In reading A GRAVE PREDICTION I fully expected another para-cozy addition to author Laurie’s long running series. While it is that, I’ve noticed this series is becoming more of a series that will also pull in non-cozy fans readers, as it breaks the cozy bonds just a little.

A GRAVE PREDICTION will have even the most seasoned mystery readers guessing and struggling to find answers. There

4/10. Again, don't like Abby. She gets so angry at the dumbest things that by now she should have grown a tougher hide. Also she is clueless about most things and that makes me think whenever she gets pregnant her BFF will know before she does. And that, in a book about a psychic, will make ME angry. ...more

This is the fourteenth book in the Psychic Eye mystery series by Victoria Laurie.

Wow! I just can’t get enough of this series. Probably my favorite series right now. It is totally my jam and filling a need in my heart!

Abby has both instant insights in this and also those insights that take a while to ferret out. Seems like the FBI is always wanting to test her abilities at every turn. But she makes a believer out of them. Love this underdog. She always makes a way an pulls through no matte

In this book, Abby Cooper is sent to the FBI office in Los Angeles to train the agents. However when she arrives she is taken for a kook except for one female agent who uses Abby to solve a big case. When Abby sees something and tells two other agents and nothing turns up she is fired and told to leave Los Angeles. Of course, Abby doesn't leave and with Candance's help they continue trying to figure out the case of bank robberies. The book was a quick easy read. ...more

I’ve read all the books in the Abby Cooper Psychic Eye Mystery series and I can honestly recommend them to anyone who just likes to read. There’s mystery, a bit of paranormal, and some romance.

What I liked: Ms Laurie doesn’t disappoint in giving the reader an exciting adventure. Her stories are well written, logically written, and the initial characters are still as good, if not better, than when the series started.

Abby is a psychic but she doesn’t have all the answers. Her “visions” are bits

My thanks to Netgalley and Berkley Publishing Group for an opportunity to read an advanced copy of this book.

After reading Victoria Laurie’s last book in her Ghost Hunter series (which was her best by far), I wanted to see if she had stepped up her game with her Psychic Eye Mystery series. I do have to say that it is on par with her last in this series, Sense of Deception, and there were even parts where I found myself laughing out loud.

In addition to her work consulting with the Austin FBI col
In this book Abby is being forced to go to L.A. to help the FBI there. However, she's going to encounter a whole lot of people that don't want her there, and they end up making her life hell.

As Abby tries to figure out what is going on with this case, and why her ability seems to be messed up a little, she does her best to work with the FBI. But that is cut short pretty quickly! Abby and Candice do their best to solve the crime before it is too late.

This book was good, and I really enjoyed it.
This book would have been so much better if there was more action and drama. There was too much repetitive dialogue and talk about their exercise & diet regimen. A pet peeve of mine, is when authors repeat the same information in each of their books. If you are going to write a series, keep your loyal readers in mind and not explain the same things in each book. We remember. If you want new readers to understand make a glossary or something. We have read 14 times the source of the character's ni ...more

Wow, this was an old-fashioned page-turning who done it. The story kept moving quickly forward with clues that didn't connect. An added plus was that neither Abby nor Candice's lives were in danger.
