I like mysteries with a little humor mixed in! This had both, so I really enjoyed it.
Abbie Cooper because I got to see into the mind of a psychic and how she got messages!
Good voice, I could usually tell which character she was reading.
The ending was great!
Very enjoyable! Can't wait to get the next book in the series!
This is a really easy book to listen too. The story was engaging and the narrator did a good job.
Engaging but I think she has some kind of speech impediment or lisp. Also, the characters are constantly changing accents... The lawyer alone goes through three or four different voices.
near the top
I enjoyed the plot, It keep me near the edge of my seat and I was sad when the book ended, because I wanted to keep listening to this story.
The storytelling its self was good.
I was very enthralled in this book I enjoyed every moment.
I was shocked to find this story was set in places I was familiar with. It was wonderful imagining this story happening and being able to have an actual picture of the places that were being spoken of. But even if I didn't know the area I would have still found this book to be worth the listen.
I really like the character
I just don't feel like she sounds like Abby Cooper, no disrespect but I was under the impression that Abby Cooper is in her early 30's and Elizabeth Michaels doesn't sound like a woman in her early 30's from Michigan. She does mispronunce words and places like street names in most books in this series.
Love the story, but the narrator just isn't right for the character. I am sure she could do other characters in other books better, she just isn't Abby.
I was looking for a change from my usual selections of writers such as Jodi Picoult, Jojo Moyes, and the like. My fault! Psychic Eye is not even worth being a dime store beach day book. I kept hoping for it to improve but it didn't. Even the narrator seemed to speak as if laughing all the while. Bad decision.
The explanations were long and some of the lines were lame ("liar, liar, pants on fire"). I kept forgetting the main character was 30ish and not 50ish.
The narrator and the writing made the main character seem much older than she was supposed to be. I almost didn't make it through the book, but toward the end I enjoyed it more. The mystery wasn't as interesting as I'd hoped and interactions with Dutch made me cringe because of the narrator. I felt like my mom was reading me a romance novel.
This was a nice entertaining mystery with lots of humor and a little bit of romance. The lead is an engaging character and you can't wait to see what she'll do next. As several reviewers have said it's in the same vein as the Stephanie Plum series by Janet Evanovich, although this was more of a whodunit. It also reminded me a little of the Molly Harper vampire books.
The narrator was fine if she was just reading but was not very good with voices. At times I wasn't sure who was talking, including if it was a male or female.
I'm looking forward to reading more of this series.
I enjoyed the story line and may even buy the next in the series. But the narration was one of the worst I've heard. I've been listening to audio books for many years and most narrators can act the voices of the characters. And although it may be difficult for a man to read as a woman or vice versa most narrators carry it off extremely well. Elizabeth Michaels is most likely the worst narrator I've heard. Her voices vary little, making it difficult to understand who is speaking. And the fact that she can't read a question from a character without carrying the questioning inflection into the rest (unquoted) portion of the sentence, to me, is a sign of an amateur. I'm debating whether to purchase the next in the series. I was hoping the narrator would have changed but it looks like Ms Michaels is the narrator for the entire series. I may try one more to see if she got any better.
I've enjoyed CJ Critt,
Abby Cooper has a unique ability to read people, but not all the time and not always when she needs the info. She has had this ability all her life, but one day a trance medium comes into her bank job and gives her a message -- from beyond the grave. She soon changes jobs and becomes a self employed psychic reader. Her life quickly gets complicated and she has drawn the attention of the local police. Love, mystery, danger and her spirit guides keep Victoria Laurie's cute "psychic eye" series hopping with tension and laughter.
If you are a fan of Diane Mott Davidson then you will enjoy this lite-fare mystery.
