    In New York Times best-selling author Victoria Laurie’s newest Psychic Eye Mystery, Abby Cooper is trusting her intuition and heading to Sin City to bet on a friend’s innocence.... When police show Abby surveillance video of her best friend and business partner, Candice Fusco, shooting a man in cold blood, she can’t believe her eyes. And when the cops tell her they think the victim has ties to the Mob - and perhaps Candice does, too - she can’t believe her ears. Surely there is a logical explanation.

    Story

    This is a good book. Candace is in a jam and Abbey is her only hope. The plot was a bit far fetched and there were many twists and turns. However, the book was pleasant enough and enjoyable.

    This is a very enjoyable story. Realistic and engaging characters, an interesting plot and enough red herrings to make this a very good mystery. I was halfway through the book when I decided to buy the rest of the books in the series. I recommend this series to everyone who likes mysteries.

    The story was formulaic. The characters were flat and the mystery was predictable. But it was light, fluffy and quick. I recommend it for a day when you have a lot to do and need background noise.

    Minister's wife, sometime sleuth, and culinary artist Faith Sibley Fairchild is intrigued by rumors of mysterious doings at Hubbard House - an elegant, secluded retirement home for the well-heeled Yankees of Aleford, Massachusetts. Determined to do some surreptitious snooping, she joins the pricey retreat's flu-depleted kitchen staff, only to witness an aging resident collapse face-first into a bowl of Faith's hot and savory boillon.

    Deputy coroner Mattie Winston knows a thing or two about dead bodies. That's why she's on the case of Derrick Ames, a high school math teacher stabbed to death with a barbecue fork straight to the heart. Sure, she's turned up some motives and a few suspects, but nothing adds up. Especially when the evidence points to Ames's teenage son. Newly pregnant Mattie can't believe it, even as her own long-estranged father may be following her.

Along for the ride are a colorful cast of cruise-goers, including four sales reps who are the creme de la creme of the cosmetic industry and a group of morticians looking for a little joie de vivre as they sort out business conflicts. But once a guest is found dead along Normandy's famed Alabaster coast, Emily bids adieu to the hopes of a fatality-free trip.

    This was the funniest and most engaging of the series. The story is well written with funny characters and twists and turns to keep the plot moving. The interesting tidbits about the places in France and the poignant World War 2 stories added substance to the fluffy nature of the story. I would love to travel with Emily and the Iowa seniors. They are funny and entertaining. I hope this isn't the last book in the series. This book is a must read.

    If Katie Bonner's late husband hadn't invested all their savings in the craft fair Artisans Alley - which Katie is now responsible for keeping in the black - the Webster mansion could have been hers to remodel. For years she dreamed of renovating the old place on Victoria Square into a bed and breakfast. Now that dream belongs to another young couple.

    This book was not for me. I didn't like the subject matter so I stopped reading early into the book. Maybe I will pick it up another day and enjoy it. That being said, I didn't want to give it a negative rating. I do think the a professional narration would make it better.

    Emily Andrew-Miceli, travel escort extraordinaire, and her husband, Etienne, are leading a merry band of globetrotting seniors on a tour of Scotland's highlands and islands. In addition to the usual haggis tasting and kilt shopping activities, Emily has organized a high-tech scavenger hunt - her own version of the Highland games that soon turns into all out clan warfare. When one feuding team member is found dead, Etienne - a former police detective - suspects an allergic reaction.
