Everyone has to have that "Thing They Love!" This is how I find and keep up with mine!
Action packed lots of friends join in to help Abby make it down the isle- the question is is Abby ready for her sisters help and is she ready to put her abilities on the back burner to say I do? Action packed well written and worth the credit! I would suggest reading the seasons in order.
Fun series, great twisting story.
The narrator has gotten way better, but still doesn't do male voices well. She came up with a new voice for agent Harrison, after him being in 2 previous books, that doesn't fit his personality.
More inconsistencies: M.J. Who used to be Abby's best friend and partner, now seem like near strangers who haven't kept in contact. When Abby talks of her parents, they sound more abusive with each book.
Kat, Abby's sister, seems completely crazy and obsessed, with no reference to the great love and dependence they have on each other, or how they call each other daily, or how Abby has and does stand up to her, or how she mainly lives in Boston with her husband and young twins.
Despite it all, it was a fun romp.
I look for to the Abby Cooper mysteries. This book was no different. For the most part I enjoyed it. The mystery was solid, Dutch and Abbey were great. However, the book lost a star with Abby's sister Cat and MJ. #1 I don't like when books go back and forth with the past and present. It doesn't increase the suspense it only becomes a distraction. #2 The inclusion of MJ and Gilley was annoying. The two characters were out of place and didn't add to the progression of the story. They could have been eliminated and Candace and Milo could have played a bigger role in the story. #3 Cat was completely out of character. In the past she has always been a little over the top. But she has never been so obnoxious and over bearing. I expected her to plan an extravagant wedding, but I also expected the wedding to be sophisticated and stylish. The wedding that she planned did not reflect anyone's style. It was actually tacky and offensive. If it was meant to include humor into the story it fell far from it's mark. #4 although Abby's parents were mentioned in the book and it was explained why they would not be attending the wedding, I expected them to attend anyway. In previous books they were described as social climbers and wanting to be in the center of attention. Plus they have a relationship with Cat. The addition of the parents could have served as comic relief and unnecessary drama instead of including MJ and Gilley, and going back and forth with the past and present. I found myself skipping through the book at some points because it was too much. I will buy the next book but if it continues to over exaggerate comic situations I might have to say goodbye to Abby and Dutch.
This series keeps getting better and better, it's a MUST READ!
I think this is might be my favorite of the Psychic Eye Mysteris. I love that Victoria added M.J. and Gillie to help out on this adventure. Hopefully they will pop in more often in the future and maybe work together to solve the next mystery.
Narration is fabulous as usual too!
Congrats Victoria, this book was FANTASTIC, looking forward to reading it a 2nd time!
I really like the series, but this one was hard to listen to and took me a long time to finish. It was as Abby lost all knowledge of her power and how it worked. She was a shell of herself that we liked from previous books and couldn't talk to anyone about it, especially Dutch. Kat just went psycho. I didn't like the past & present story line switching either. I had so many eye rolls just wishing it would end. Sorry, hope next one makes up for this one.
This story is a bit different than the others and took some getting used to. Instead of always being told from Abby's POV, it switches around now and then. While I think this was a good way of telling this story, especially the parts where Abby was not present (and therefore could not narrate...), it did take some getting used to. By halfway through I was totally engrossed and the shifting around no longer caught my attention, and I could focus solely on the story.
Ms. Michaels turned in another excellent performance; she gets four stars this time (instead of her usual 5) because she changed a few of the characters' voices (Bryce's in particular) and I don't like the new ones as well. Still she is easy to listen to and does a fantastic job distinguishing among the many characters.
Overall, this book is a good one in a great series. I've already started the next.
Terrific narration. Question, does Texas not issue marriage license? Only problem I had why no one looked up Mimi's to find our intended's name. I am moving into next book now.
I have enjoyed the previous books but this one was a disappointment. The going back and forth from past to future was annoying and did nothing to enhance the story. The voice change for a main character was also disappointing. Also, changing Abbie's parents from selfish moo hers to abusive parents did not fit in with the other books either. While I liked the first books I will have to think about downloading the next in the series.
It was an entertaining storyline if it had been portrayed better and not bounced around out of order.
