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 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.
Have always loved books and I find that as I have gotten older I find this way more enjoyable then listening to the radio.
what Love is
oh beyound true, u kept listening and your right with abby the whole time, u understand her frustration with seeing what she does and her body rebuilding it's self
Dutch on the bridge with abby, refusing to let her go
I did both all the time
Yes...I would read more of Victoria Laurie... I've read (or listen to) all eleven books in books in row in a matter of a few weeks. And I liked the story line.
I do not know what happen to Brices voice... in this book he sounds like an old lady. I was almost not able to listen. .. I even went back to the other books and his voice was fine, but this voice was horrible.
Reissue with the original Brice voice... how could this have been released. ...
Yes it is a very well written book, it can be read by young and old. You don't get TMI and you just flow though the book and the end comes way to soon and now you wait for another book in the series,
The lead up to the wedding.....is it going to happen????
When she walks down the street....you just can't wait.
Yes, yes and yes
I am hoping for book 12 soon...Thank you
I really love series, its nice to get to know your characters and see the story evolve from book to book.
She does not do a good job as Abby and her voice inflection for the other characters leaves a lot to be desired. Every time Brice Harrison had a line i cringed because she made him sound like a weasel, not the Assistant Special Agent in Charge. I feel bad saying it but she is not the best choice for this series, a different book maybe, but if i didn't have my kindle book to help me break from the performance I may have given up on this series 10 books ago.
The series is a good one just get past the narration and you can love Abby, Candace, Dutch, Brice, Milo and the rest of the "crew"
I am not that fond of the perfomer, she sounds older than than "Edgar" is supposed to be. However, the story is excellent as always.
