Well, I don't know. I didn't totally figure out who done it and that was probably the best thing about this read. But honestly, I was distracted by how bad Abby's character came off this book. She was a complete contradiction. She could read the intentions of a complete stranger she'd never met, but couldn't figure out if a friend was guilty through the ether. She told Brice she wouldn't claim her FBI ties during her and Candace's investigation and admonished Candace for thinking it. Yet, the fi ...more

While I thought A Panicked Premonition was another solid addition in the Psychic Eye Mystery series, but I thought the crime was a bit too violent this time. Initially, I consider this series to fall in the cozy mystery genre -- even with dangers like strapped-bomb or murders in the previous books. However, this time the crime involved (view spoiler) and I wonder if I could still consider this cozy...

This is the fifteenth book in the psychic eye series and I think it is one of the best in the series. Abby and Candice's husbands are FBI agents but who also have a side business with their friend Dave installing panic rooms and security for rich clients. When one morning Dave's wife calls Abby to say Dave never came home and if Abby has seen him, they realize he is missing. They trace his movements to one of the clients houses and in turn finds the family murdered along with the maid and the ga ...more

This is the fifteenth book in the Psychic Eye series and the first one that I have read. After some initial fear that I wouldn't know enough, I began reading this and was quickly drawn into the story. Abby Cooper is a professional psychic married to an FBI Special Agent named Dutch who has a side business providing security and panic rooms to the very wealthy. She works with her friend Private Investigator Candice who is married to Dutch's partner Brice.

Abby and Candice is doing everything in their power to find a friend before it is too late. If doing so will save their husbands business as well it will be totes amazing.
This could easily have been a five star book if it wasn't for a few pesky issues.

Abby has grown a lot since the first book. It is one of my favorite things about this series. No book is exactly the same. However, I have noticed that Laurie is starting to lose track of her characters and the case seemed to drag on for almost eve

One of Dutch’s flirting clients insists on a meet and greet with Abby. Then, she requests Abby to do an unethical psychic reading of a man, which Abby refuses to do. Dave, the contractor, disappears in mysterious circumstances. The murders begin -- connected with their side business of panic room installations.

Abby says, “I’m, like, the Paleo queen, and I don’t have that layer of blubber around my middle anymore. …Do you want to see my abs?”

Saturday I started and finished A Panicked Premonition by Victoria Laurie. This is the 15th book in the series and I am truly amazed by her ability to write books I simply can not put down. She has a wonderful way of writing not only characters but intense scenes that are so easy to picture that you feel so involved in the story. While these are paranormal cozy mystery books they also have an element of suspense that you do not often find in cozies. I know these would make amazing movies as the ...more

Laurie is a favored author and knows how to bring a story not to mention a mystery to life. Each book just gets better and better, I always look forward to new releases. In this 15th book of the series Abby has settled into life in Texas and made some healthy changes. Her husband Dutch's side business is booming and all is looking well for the couple and their future. When two of Dutch's clients are found murdered and friend/handyman Dave is the main suspect Abby must use her ability to find the ...more

Nice story, but I thought Abby's physic ability was underused. Not that the suspense wasn't great, but I thought the whole point of the series is for Abby to use her sixth sense to help solve the case, with (understandable) minor roadblocks here and there, rather than dead ends (no pun intended). Honestly, it just felt like a normal murder mystery.

4.5 Stars!

Fantastic addition to the Psychic Eye Mystery series!

What I liked: I’ve read this series when it first came out, took a break because so many books, not enough time, and Ms Laurie has found a way to keep it fresh and entertaining. I’m to the point where I would really love to hang out with Abby and Candice. Yes, they’re best friends but their personalities complement each other in a great way.

In A Panicked Premonition, the emphasis is on a new business Dutch (Abby’s husband, FBI agent)

This book came out right when I needed it. I've had the past couple of weeks off from work and thought I'd be reading non-stop. I've started several books at the moment that I have enjoyed, but I just haven't felt too motivated to sit down and read. Well, this book brought me out of my slump. I don't even know how many books we are into this series, but I always love the Abby books. This is book number 15 in the series, and I hope there will be 15 more.

One of my favorites in the series, probably because the mystery was very exciting and intricate. It kept me guessing and turning pages. And of course, Abby, Candice, Dutch, Brice and Nikki were as fun as ever.

Psychic and FBI consultant Abby Cooper and her gun-toting, Porche-driving business partner Candice Fusco, and their FBI agent spouses Dutch and Brice, respectively, (honest, I did not make those ridiculously macho names up) all live and work in Austin, Texas. As a sideline to their lucrative work as Special Agents, Dutch and Brice install panic rooms in absurdly wealthy peoples' homes.

Abby's new diet and fitness regimen takes a fast backseat when Dave the former handyman not only goes missing but is suspected of murdering his and Dutch's wealthy clients.
The ether feels bad in this particularly frustrating case. Readers finally learn Dave's "old lady"'s real name just as they're wondering if he's been lying to Abby and Dutch for years.
Not much is as it seems, as the 1% strives to protect their own while Abby's crew tries to find AND clear Dave.
The action picks up fast and roll
Once again Abby has to solve a case involving a friend that is linked to her husband and herself. Sorry that type of case is getting old not just in this series but all series. I did find myself getting pulled into the twist and turns because of the writing but I found myself getting lost in a couple of places while trying to keep track of what all is going on. Abby has grown so much but the lack of her abilities being showcased more in solving the case was a big turn off. Something else was a l ...more

And as it has become a tradition of mine to rate books of this series a bit (lot!) earlier than I can actually get my hands on it in order to be able to happily reinforce this rating at a muuuch later date post factum.

My favourite series about Abby rules on! I really hope there are lots of further books down this road for me.

Thought I was in the mood for something really light. Just couldn't get into it, there were too many OOC moments, the cutesy language wasn't working for me, and had more violence than I expected from a cozy mystery. Ended up skimming, and read the conclusion just to verify that I knew whodunnit.

My thanks to Netgalley and the Publisher for an opportunity to read an advanced copy of this book.

I love it when I am reading a mystery and begin to have my own “but what about” questions and then one by one the author answers them. “It’s like she gets me” (ok, you will have to read the book to get that reference).

Another stellar entry in the Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye series. In this one, Abby and crew are on a mission to clear friend and coworker Dave's name after he becomes prime suspect in the murder case of one of Dutch's wealthy clients. Not only is this case full of disjointed clues that lead the team in circles, but it also contains a sort of "chaotic energy" that messes with Abby's intuitive abilities to make accurate predictions.

This is the first Victoria Laurie book that I had a hard time reading. Its like I just couldn't get in the story (with this said- I also moved to a different state and started a new job while reading this book)- so perhaps, it was more on my end than the book?

I like the changes in Abby. I think as a human being we change. We try to be healthier. We have days where we still want five burritos. And when you're in a happy marriage- you may sexualize your husband in the context of your mind. So when
