Professional psychic Abby Cooper has invested in a fixer-upper, hoping to make a killing in the real estate market. But a killing of another kind puts her plans awry, as the ghost of a murdered woman and some troublesome poltergeists lead her into a mystery that stretches all the way back to World War II.

This book really showed what Abby could do as a psychic I think. Haunted house and the subsequent mystery solving were very interesting and fun. It was also the first time that Dutch and Abby finally started to work together as a romantic couple as well as a mystery solving couple.
I would be reading more from this series in the future.
Oh and the reader is very good too!
I am really enjoying this series. The psychic aspect is believable and makes for a new and different mystery. the characters are fun and the narration is good. Plan to work my way through the series.
I really enjoy this series of books and love the outlook on life and daily interactions. Some books have too many details and tend to lose you in the story, but V. Laurie provides just enough detail for you to picture the scene in your mind yet not lose you in all the details. Can't wait to read/listen to more.
Everything this author writes is awesome! It's got all the right features, a little supernatural twist to real world events. LOVE IT!!
Love fantasy books, usually with a strong female character. I also enjoyed just about anything from J.D Robb I am a fan of mysteries as well. I also enjoy funny and quirky novels anything from Molly Harper is a winner in my book. Since listening to audio books is important to me while I travel I also follow certain narrators as well.
I found it interesting how Abby can find trouble in the most innocent of places. This was an easy and light listen, narrator is good, and keep me entertained on a long trip.
THIS BOOK WAS A GOOD LISTEN. NOT ONE OF MY FAVORITE CANT GET OUT OF THE CAR LISTEN, BUT A GOOD LISTEN. I LIKE THAT MJ FOR THE GHOULS SERIES IS BROUGHT IN TO MEET ABBEY.

I usually don't review the books I didn't finish. However, I must this time, because this reader absolutely ruined the book. When I read the first book in the series I thought -okay, reader sucks but the story is not too bad. Romance was kind of looking to be hot and mistery was all right. Then I bought the second book. Reader was even worse this time. You would think that people get better with practice, right? Wrong! I couldn't tell voices apart even when she read male parts, or should I say especially when she read male parts. To make things worse, the couple is dating for months without consuming their relationship. Ph-leese. They are in their twenties, the guy is extra hot FBI agent. I don't know why I got the third book. If I drank, I would think I was wasted. Maybe I ate something bad.Some mushrooms that got mixed with my salad and made me halucinate that this was actually worth a credit. Maybe I just wanted to see if the poor guy is finally going to get laid. After fifteen minutes of torture, I gave up. I suggest you give up too, before the torture starts.

This narrator speak so slowly that I listen at 1.25 speed to avoid getting annoyed at the long pauses. half way through the story they start playing really awful music at the beginning of the chapters too. There are better storylines in psychic eye series. Good for a distraction.

I really like this series, but not crazy about the voice of Elizabeth Michaels. I would have given the story more stars if I hadn't been able to figure out the plot so soon in the book. (Generally my benchmark for movies, too.) IMO, it wouldn't take a seasoned psychic so long to figure things out, since I did so quickly. Still, it had some good writing and a historical connection that I liked so it's a keeper. Also, I liked the link-up with M.J. from the Ghost Hunters series.
I loved this 3rd installment of the Abby Cooper series. Great story! I'm hooked. I only wish the narrator could vary her voice a bit to distinguish the characters, but you can't have everything.
