    Love the series even on my 3rd read through, but I can't seem to get past the subtle misogyny. I must be growing as a person cause I just didn't see it the first time around. Abby is so worried about Dutch yelling at her that she does the most outrageous things to avoid it. Frankly, it makes me sad.

    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.

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 friend, and sometimes client, Candice who is interested in starting up her own PI business. Together they work on the case while trying not to get themselves killed in the process. This series continues to offer interesting mysteries, however the relationship between Dutch and Abby is like watching a train wreck in slow motion. I don't want it to happen. I can see the collision course even if they cannot. There's nothing I can do to stop it, but I cannot stop looking. When these two first met, I was equally smitten. However, Abby continues to keep Dutch at arms length, even as he continues to be overly supportive and appreciative of her abilities. So far, there has been no acceptable explanation for her commitment phobia. She says she loves him, but then in the very next breath treats him terribly. I hope, after the events at the end of this installment, they are finally able to become the strong couple I know they can be. She has an FBI guy at her beck and call, yet she continues to venture on her own after killers. This makes no sense to me, especially considering the costs she's paid for doing so. Candice is tough and can teach Abby a lot about self-defense. Abby will need it if she's going to continue hunting killers on her own.

    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 glad I read this series out of sequence because I HATE this book. You know VL, this book could give psychics a bad name. That is if I didn't know several who happen to be well balanced, financial savvy, personally fine individuals. Oh and My dog says, if it isn't at least 20 pounds, it might be a perfectly fine animal, but it sure as hell isn't a dog. She does have some friends who are less than 20 lbs that yap, some poms and a dachsy, but she is firmly convinced they are not dogs AND she loves her cat friends too. :P

    2.5. I'm getting tired of Dutch's "sweethot" and a bit tired of the main character's constant lying. She's always like a young kid afraid to tell the truth as she will "get into trouble" with Dutch. Very immature and frustrating. Also, how many times can she land herself in "near-death" situations?! She's like a cat with nine lives. Not feeling this plot so much.

    Both H/h annoyed me to no end. Lies, omissions, awkward conversations... it gets old very fast. I'll have to take a break with the series. Oh, and the dog versus cat person?

    It's been a while since I've read a book from this series and it was easy to jump back into it. This was a fun story with good characters. I enjoyed how seemingly unrelated cases came together in the end. It's fun watching Abby use her gift to help solve cases and I think we all wish we had her inboard lie detector. I won't be waiting so long to get to the next book in the series.

    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.

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 because, quite frankly, the characters never really change, and sometimes the dialogue is pretty terrible. But I love the plot. I look forward to reading every book in this series. Dutch, as always, annoyed me in this book. I find too high handed. He almost never trusts Abby's instincts, which are always dead on (okay...in this book he got a bit better. But just a bit!) Plus he's way overprotective. I really hate that Abby has to lie and avoid telling him anything just so that she can get done what she needs to get done. Granted, it's generally dangerous, but this is Abby we're talking about! She's always made it out alive...so far anyway. And besides that, he's the in the bloody FBI! His job is just as dangerous, so he needs to back off. Anyway, despite my misgivings of the love interest in these books, they are pretty awesome, and I definitely plan on reading the rest of the series (in fact, I already own them.)

    Abby seems to be having trust issues with Dutch in this new adventure which has her scrambling to investigate a cop killer without confiding in anyone except her PI friend and partner. I did like how the author manage to weave together the strands of more than one case, even if it seems awfully lucky that some people were in the right place at the right time. The problem was, this book felt a little bit flat - and Dutch a little too good to be true by the end though it was still fun to read.

    When I read this series, I always wonder to myself why I don't read them more often. I think I actually like it more than the Ghost Hunters (mainly because Gilley in that series is really annoying me)

    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 myself, I found it interesting to read how she picks up her info and so fast, strong hits right away. I'm sure, and although the author is also a psychic, Ms. Cooper gives artist liberty with psychic impressions that Abby receives. All in all, good characters, good story and will definitely read more of Ms. Laurie's books. I enjoy this series, this installment was definitely not the best one in the series.

    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 gal who takes the more reluctant Abby on adventures. Some parts I felt she was being too pushy, but I think their relationship makes a good contrast. The regular surrounding characters including her sister, Milo and Dave makes appearances, too. I think this series is getting better as it progresses. Good thing there is more to read!

    Crime Seen begins with Abby living with her boyfriend Dutch while she gets better. Things have been crazy with her for a while now, and she's afraid to get back to her job. However, when a friend of hers moves to town she decides that she may have a new partner now, and go undercover to help solve a case that Dutch asked her to. And one he didn't ask her to do, but she felt compelled to do it anyway. This book was really good. And I think it had a lot of progress between Dutch and Abby.

    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 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.

    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.

    Abby is still recovering from the bullet that she took in the last book (I actually kind of like that the timeline in these books is relatively compressed) but her friend and sometimes-client Candice Fusco has decided to start her own PI business in Royal Oak and helps Abby get back to work. Together, they look into the murder of Milo's former partner, Walter McDaniel. Supposedly a man named Bruce Lutz did it, but Abby's crew are telling her that's wrong.

At Candice's urging, Abby goes to work undercover at a loans company run by Dick Wolfe, the guy who probably ordered the hit on Walter. But of course Abby doesn't tell Dutch about this at all. So that's another reason these two should NOT be in a relationship.(view spoiler)[ Abby has weird dreams that involve wolves and sheep, and in the end, she and Candice discover that the prison warden, where Bruce Lutz has been serving his sentence, is actually behind the murder - he did it to prove loyalty to Wolfe, who instated hi at the Jackson prison to make sure Lutz served his purpose. Oh and also Dave and his wife finally get married after she threatens to leave him because he never proposed after 20 years. (hide spoiler)] Also, just a small gripe, but Abby gets all upset that Dutch's cat Virgil ruins her clothes, saying she's pulling out "one hanger of tattered clothing after another." I thought all her clothes were ruined by the way she was acting, but then she tells Dutch that Virgil wrecked 4 tops. She's all bent out of shape about four shirts,when she's been through worse (she lost her whole wardrobe when her first house went up in flames two books ago). (view spoiler)[ Basically she forces Dutch to choose between the cat and her. (hide spoiler)]

    I read a few of the other reviews and I would say that I have to agree; The main character's treatment of her boyfriend was.... well terrible. There was really no need for the majority of the lies . If she would have just told the truth she would have saved herself a lot of trouble but I guess that would have made a much shorter book. As far as the story goes it was on par with the others but the relationship parts are getting rather silly, just my thoughts .

    This is a standout book in the Abby Cooper series. I really enjoyed the story and the action. Even the love story between Dutch and Abby was great and believable and reflects the reality of trying to maintain a committed relationship between 2 real world people. Abby is a great character and her newest investigation is so perfectly crafted and exciting.

    Very good read. I borrowed this book from the library and forgot about it until the library said I had only three days left on the loan. So I started reading it and couldn't put it down until I finished it in two days. That's how much I liked it.
