I have faith that Abby can be redeemed but her attitude is making me wince. Anyway- The plot centered around a haunting of the house that Abby, Dave and Cat recently bought to fix up.

But it seemed like he did it all the time. He also was annoying as was her sister. I think the only character that was in previous books that didn't make me want to blow my brains out was Milo the police officer. Even her handyman was a pain in the ass. Yes, I will continue to read the serious, one bad book doesn't ruin the series. Nobody is perfect. I just PRAY she redeems herself in the next one.

    A very annoying main character takes this not-bad mystery down a couple of notches. She's so childish I couldn't wish for good things to happen to her.

    A Vision of Murder by Victoria Laurie is the 3rd book in the Psychic Eye Mystery series. Psychic intuitive Abby Cooper buys an investment property with her sister Cat and handyman Dave only to find it inhabited by an evil spirit and the ghost of a murdered woman. A terrific, well-written addition to the series where the author does a great job in educating us in the paranormal. Fun characters and a very entertaining read

    My least favorite of the first three, Abby went from awesome main character I stood behind to one that made me cringe. While it was supposed to be funny, I guess, she came off too unsympathetic to Dutch's injuries (the potholes, ouch?) and was reckless with her safety. Stubbornness is one thing, stupidity is another. I like she has flaws, but her aggravation with Dutch being injured got tiresome. As an example, the first day he starts walking again, with a cane, she won't stop walking quickly to My least favorite of the first three, Abby went from awesome main character I stood behind to one that made me cringe.

I like she has flaws, but her aggravation with Dutch being injured got tiresome. As an example, the first day he starts walking again, with a cane, she won't stop walking quickly to investigate a property, and only feels guilty when she looks back to see him pale and sweating from trying to keep up. She gets annoyed when he asks her to stay with him a bit while he's recovering to help him out since he can't move for a week or so, and the doctor suggests it. She keeps calling him "Gimpy" as a nickname because he is currently with a limp while in recovery. I mean seriously? Cat felt a bit overdone as well with one particular scene but the side family dynamics are still enjoyable enough to add layers. Abby spends time with work but it's not the same feel since she didn't find her newest mystery through a client this time and spends hardly any time in the office. The mystery itself held backstory but some of it was predictable and it didn't hold my interest in comparison to the other two. Having a ghost is semi pointless when the ghost is around so little, so this doesn't bring in as much of a haunted element as I wanted, but the foggy effect and that one particular scene was downright twisted fun. Full review soon.

    I hated this book! Thank God I didn't pay for it. I couldn't even finish it. I got so tired of negative, unintelligent, whiny Abby. Personally, I think the author shows a lot of her own personality in her writing and she is an incredibly small minded, negative, angry person. She is one of those typical self-hating whites who is so filled with hatred for people, especially those with money. She could use some serious therapy! I hated this book!

    I haven't decided if I will be reading the next book in this series or not. I was disappointed in this book, not that I had huge expectations, but I enjoyed the first two books and expected the same from this one. Abby was really starting to annoy me in this book. She lost her appeal and reality when for the umpteenth time she knowingly went into a dangerous situation out of spite/anger/curiosity/rebellion. I felt like I was on a Ferris wheel going around and around. Dangerous situation, her rad I haven't decided if I will be reading the next book in this series or not.

    It's been a while since I've read a book in this series and this one reminded me of why I like it. It was fun watching Abby use her gifts to help figure out what was going on with the house she was rehabbing. I also enjoyed that they were piecing together things going back to WWII. Can't wait to read more in the series. It's been a while since I've read a book in this series and this one reminded me of why I like it.

    I felt so disappointed and frustrated. In the first book, Abby was childish and had her faults at times but that made her character even more lovable and easier to connect to. She was funny, brave, independent, and full of curiosity. I thought of her slightly stubbornness as determination and persistence. BUT all of that changed in the third book.

Actually, Abby started to become an annoyingly stubborn and whiny, spoiled child since the second book. And she was downright stupid and rude in this one. I had my reasons for saying that. Someone broke Abby’s window and was still inside her house when she came home. He was definitely dangerous because Abby’s intuition went haywire and her “crews” were frantically warning her to run away. Even without psychic abilities, any sane person knew that. Hello? Broken glass? Damaged furniture? But guess what our “SMART” heroine did. SHE CAME IN! ALONE! NOT CALLING THE POLICE OR ANYONE! THROWing AWAY ALL RATIONAL AND LOGIC! But what if she could fight him, with no weapons? Don’t make me laugh. Abby was WEAK. She didn’t know how to throw a punch and when she was being attacked by the intruder, she cowered away doing nothing. Even though I didn’t blame her for that, I hate her for being so blindly stubborn and arrogant to admit her weakness. She totally could called the police (or Dutch, or Milo, or Dave), hid somewhere and wait to see the man’s face WITHOUT being noticed. What was the point to come in when the intruder was still in there? After that, Dutch and everyone told (pleaded) Abby not to do anything dangerous alone. Yet, she ignored all the warnings and ended up getting injured several times. Abby even said rude things to Dutch (she managed to had a fight with him three times in this book) as he just simply being protective. Her curiosity and determination gradually changed to stupidity and stubbornness. Sadly, by the time I finished this book, I really HATE Abby. P/s: Abby was not the only problem I had with this book. It was just the biggest one.

I don't know what made me think that Abby - of really, the author - would have grown up any between books, but this one, I had to give up on early on. The characters are not remotely believable and now I don't even like them at all. Abby is still the self-absorbed petty narcissist incapable of thinking of anyone or anything other than herself.

She's still takes incredibly stupid risks, despite numerous warnings. I really hate STUPID female protagonists. The stereotype of the dumb blonde does not deserve to be perpetuated. Also, I find lengthy descriptions of "hunky" men puerile. Never reading another book by this author again.

    This is my 3rd time reading the series and I have to say that I'm noticing some things about Dutch that I went unnoticed the first 2x I read the series. Under the guise of caring for Abby, he treats her like a child. Granted, she does some risky things and isn't trained to handle them, but there are ways to have a rational conversation to ensure your partner is acting safely, but he demands her to do things. He hides her car keys which only forces her to behave in a more risky manor.

Those are Janet Evanovich's characters. I still love the series, though.

    3 stars to the story. Abby, Cat and Dave go in together to buy a flip property. Unfortunately, the house is haunted by a vicious poltergeist. That sends Abby, Dutch and Milo on a mission to solve what happened in the house so they can send the spirit to the other side.

    I found "A Vision of Murder" (the third in the Psychic Eye Mystery series) by Victoria Laurie to be enjoyable but not on par with the first two books of the series. We are once again treated to twists and turns, our favourite characters and this time a ghost with attitude but there was just something amiss about this adventure with Abby Cooper. There were moments when I literally laughed out loud but I did find this story more predictable than the previous books.

    Abby went from being a relatively likable character in the first book to being a horrible, idiotic, overgrown child in this one. She did such stupid things for such ridiculous reasons that I found myself almost cheering the antagonist on during their inevitable showdown.

    I love Abby, her sister, Dave, Milo, and Dutch they are all great characters. Sometimes Abby has to realize that Milo and Dutch need to be included when she solves a mystery to keep her alive. The haunted house story and her parents control over her sister was fun.

    I don't usually review books I give low stars to. It kind of doesn't feel worth my time. But this had some seriously terrible and offensive things going on, so I'm going to write about it. First the treatment of the MC's boyfriend's college buddy. They visit him, and as they're heading back to the car she starts teasing her boyfriend about his friend and what good taste he has and how he likes show tunes. And then she tells the boyfriend that his friend is gay and has a crush on him, and as back I don't usually review books I give low stars to. It kind of doesn't feel worth my time.

And then she tells the boyfriend that his friend is gay and has a crush on him, and as backup for this they talk about how the friend did decorate the boyfriend's house for him. This scene pulled out just about every cliche in the book. Then let's talk about the boyfriend. He's supposed to be a good guy apparently. But the two characters drop into random, extremely childish fights for no real reason other than the story must have needed some drama at those points. But that's not the worst of it. Frequently the boyfriend gets angry because the MC does things he told her not to. Like he has any right to tell her what to do! And at one of those times, when she went out when he told her not to because it wasn't safe, he took her car keys. Including going into her purse to take her spare set. So that she couldn't leave his house (where she was staying to nurse him from a bullet wound). So, controlling and abusive and really just horrible. This stuff is NOT a show of how much someone cares about someone else. It took me this long to write this up because I was so angry about this horrible jerk that I couldn't write about it without just screaming on the page. I'm really disappointed in this story because I really like the premise of the series. But I'm tired of the childish, ridiculous, and outright harmful behavior of these characters (I didn't even talk about the MC's sister and her completely outrageous and unreasonable behavior!). This is definitely not for me.

    This was another good mystery in the series. I do like Abby but sometimes she really doesn't think before she acts. I enjoyed the mystery part. It covered a lot time and we got to learn about the family history. Thankfully in the end Abby not only solved the case but finally got alone time with her boyfriend.

Abby takes a month off from doing psychic readings to fix up her own house and the fixer-upper. Those plans are changed when her boyfriend, FBI agent Dutch Rivers, is shot and she has to nurse him back to health. Abby does work on the fixer-upper whenever she can but work stops when she and Dutch spot the ghost of a beautiful blonde which disappears before their eyes. Abby has already had visions about the house and now her psychic ability is telling her that the blonde woman had been murdered. When Abby and Dave's houses are both broken into and Abby is attacked, she realizes someone or something is trying to keep her away from the house. But when Abby finds a box hidden in the house and has another psychic vision about the woman, she knows she has to find the killer, even though Dutch is vehemently opposed to her getting involved. When Abby's office is broken into by someone searching for the box and another person is murdered, she is more determined than ever to find the killer. "A Vision of Murder" is a well written, well done mystery. The psychic elements are very believable. Author Victoria Laurie does a great job describing how the psychic mind works, saying Abby's visions are a sensation like a telephone ringing in another room, only they are in Abby's head. Even though Abby is on vacation, she still has a chance to help people with her psychic ability which makes for some of the most interesting parts of the book. Abby's ability to tell if someone is dead merely by looking at their photo is also interesting. Abby is a very real heroine with some real problems, most noticeably the relationship with her uncaring parents. It's her relationship with other people that help make her such a great characters, especially her long-distance friendship with Medium Theresa; her friendship with handyman Dave, who will do literally anything to help her; and her friendship with her sister Cat. Her relationship with Dutch is one of best written parts of the book, the arguments they have are very realistic. And Abby's attempts to take their relationship to another level are some of the funniest parts of the book. There are other humorous moments, like the protective gear Dave wears when going into the haunted house. Another funny scene involves Cat, a bulldozer, and a police car. The mystery itself is nicely plotted, although there's never much doubt about who the murderer is. Finally, while Victoria Laurie introduces a new character, M.J. Holliday, who now has a series of her own, she does it so that M.J. fits right into the storyline rather than as a promo for the new series. "A Vision of Murder" is a great mystery. Highly recommended.

    Well that was frustrating! There are a few things that bothered me about Abby since the first book, her obstinacy that she can do everything on her own and her sometimes immature reactions being the more annoying ones, and in this book they were over the top for me. She has an interesting ability and perhaps it is in part one of the reasons for her carelessness. She is out of her depth in this part of her story in more ways than one - she encounters ghosts, something her ability is not equipped to Well that was frustrating!

She has an interesting ability and perhaps it is in part one of the reasons for her carelessness. She is out of her depth in this part of her story in more ways than one - she encounters ghosts, something her ability is not equipped to handle and a disturbed man who has vandalized her home and office and attacked her. Yet when Dutch, who might be a little overprotective and perhaps slightly high-handed in his efforts to protect her, tries to caution her into being more careful, she gets into a snit and acts like a 5-year-old. The mystery part of this book was a bit of a miss for me as well. A backstabbing jeweler who (view spoiler)[took advantage of families running away from Nazis in world war II (hide spoiler)] and the history of how and why and who was involved didn't exactly keep me at the edge of my seat. The tip of the iceberg was when right after Abby gets over one of her tantrums and agrees to be more careful and not take off on her own since the madman who's after her just killed somebody, she does exactly that! All in all Abby really tested my patience in this book and I might need a break before I get to the next book in the series, Killer Insight. P.S.: The main character of the author's Ghost Hunter Mystery series M.J. Holliday is introduced here and she sounds interesting, but I'll hold off on reading her story for now.

Glad I did, because so much hate. I can't even put into words how much I hate this book. Despite warning after warning, and being stalked, Abby still takes off on her own.

I managed three, and I don't care if this is the weakest book, there's too many books to waste time reading ones I think will just be a waste of time. I'm sorry to be so vitriolic with this review, but I've read quite a few books of Laurie's other series, and aside from being annoyed at one specific character, I like the series okay. I'm not irritated she wrote something I don't like, as that happens all the time. To me, it sets a horrible precedence when a formerly somewhat smart character starts acting really, really dumb, and the person calling her out on it is "wrong", leading to pointless arguments. Not my cup of tea, I admit, but when I figure out something before the "psychic" character, and she never listens to herself...that's a sign to move on from the series. It could've been a good series. I like the plots of the future books and what happens to Abby, but I'm done with the frustrated "this series had so much potential" feelings that only increased with each book.

    Ah, Victoria Laurie. Another Psychic Eye mystery, and another good read. In this installment of the series, Abby Cooper finds herself (surprise, surprise) in the middle of another murder. This time, however, the murder occurred in the 1940's, and the only reason they know about it is because the house Abby, her sister Cat, and her handyman Dave bought together is haunted.

The book centers around the investigation (where Abby lands herself in the hospital, as always) and her psychic 'spidey sense' that helps in nearly every situation. Just like all the other books, I thoroughly enjoyed reading A Vision of Murder. Laurie is an excellent author, and I must admit I'm highly addicted. It did have a few drawbacks, however. First and foremost (in my opinion) is her boyfriend, Dutch. Now, I know what you're thinking. He's a character in a book! How can you rant in a review about a character? Well, I'm going to! He just plain annoyed me! Throughout the entire book I just wanted to smack the overbearing, overprotective idiot. Seriously! Right...sorry about that... Anyway...There were times in the book when the dialogue felt stilted and forced. And a couple of times I couldn't help but think that the character talking would definitely never say some of the things they said, but overall, I loved it, and I fully intend to read more (quite possibly all...) of Laurie's books.

    I think I am done with the series. I liked the plot and the whole idea of the psychic detective but I cannot get into the characters. Abby is so annoying at times with her impulsive behavior. She goes to follow her intuition but it gets her in trouble more times than not; not only is she always in trouble she has no idea how to navigate personal relationships. Her and Dutch are both immature and self centered. They do not know how to communicate and fight constantly and disrespect each other to I think I am done with the series.

She calls him a son of a bitch several times. I have so much respect for my husband I could not call him that even when I am mad at him. Something else that bothered me is that Abby goes off on her own without a care in the world that she might get hurt, all while knowing that she could get killed but really not listening to others around her. I guess because she has her intuition she knows better but she should have learned after 3 book of the same scenario she cannot just run off on her own. She has no skills other than her psychic powers. I am really done with the books. I read a synopsis of the other book in the series and I am not interested at all in how bad Abby will mess it all up

    Abby Cooper and her crew are back, including FBI boyfriend Dutch, his former police partner Milo, sister Cat, and handyman Dave. When Dave and Cat decide that Abby should go into business with them in real estate, Abby is not so sure she wants to.

But when Dave makes a frantic call to Abby insisting the house is haunted, you can bet Abby knows there's gonna be trouble. In this, the third of the Psychic Eye series, the fun and danger continues. I wanted to shake Abby a few times in this book for being such a stubborn ding dong, but that's part of the joy of the book. :) If you're like me and it only takes the mention of a haunting to creep you out, you should definitely give this a read during the day with the lights on. There's not a lot of the spooky stuff, but I was reading before bed last night and had to shut the book and play some Tetris because I ended up right in the middle of a scene involving an evil old ghost. Yikes! Engaging characters, a decent mystery, and some sexual tension make this book lots of fun.

Abby, Cat and Dave decide to buy a house in order to renovate and sell it. But they didn’t expect this place to house not only the ghost of a murderer, but also the ghost of a victim who relives her death. And these entities are not content to be disturbed! Determined to find out what’s going on, our heroine is going to immerse herself in a story related to events taking place during the Second World War. To understand what is going on, she may have to put her life on the line! I really liked this novel! I also thought it was very funny that the story makes a little link with her other Ghost Hunter Mystery series that I like. By the way, I’ll have to get into volume 8 of this series! Anyway, I was happy to follow this new investigation with Abby and Dutch! I’m very curious to discover the volume 4 now!
