Read A Book
I think that this book is my favorite of the Psychic Eye series. It was thrilling and had me so anxious to get to the ending to see how it would end.
My only problem with the audio book is the voice of the character Brice Harrison. Why is he suddenly talking like Urkel? I remember his voice being stronger in previous books, but in this one it's turned into a strange, nerdy sounding character. It was very disconcerting.
I am someone who enjoys audible books very much now that they exist. As a young student (real young) I can remember a teacher telling me how books can transport people to different places & open up a whole new world. This is how listening to audible books make me feel. Now if I can just stop falling asleep while listening to them at night I would be fine. Ha ha
I did not like how Abby kept the gloomy forecast going all through the book only to be wrong about it. Frankly it was a drag down for one of her books.
THe story line for sure
maybe getting happier would have helped but all I heard was her falling down, getting her boyfriend upset & her hips colllapsing on her.
I was thrilled to see Victoria Laurie's new book! Even though the previous one in the series was not the best, I thoroughly enjoyed this one. It kept me on the edge of my seat. I recommend reading these books in order, to get a better sense of the environment and the characters. If you like the first few books, you will like this one.
Lover of The Dresden Files, The Iron Druid Chronicles, anything by Simon R Green, and anything narrated by Luke Daniels.
Victoria Laurie has done it again! Finally settling the super duo of Abby and Dutch (FBI Agents extrordinaire) in Texas; the new home is built, and the wedding day is fast approaching! But seemingly random people, girls, have been walking into crowded venues wearing explosives, and blowing themselves (and those in the immediate vicinity) up! Abby has a bad feeling about the case, her intuitive senses telling her that if she gets involved it will hit closer to home than anyone thinks, yet she has the feeling that she has to get involved in order to protect Dutch. So as she races to catch a bombing madman while trying to make it down the aisle to the man she truly loves, she has to tangle with the echoes of a past wedding gone wrong wreaking havoc with her perfectly planned (by her sister, Cat) day and making sure that the bad guys always get what's coming to them. This is the kind of read I can get lost in over and over again...
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.
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. ...
Say something about yourself!
I have thoroughly enjoyed this entire series, but this was my favorite listen.. As another reviewer eloquently put it, Abby is all grown up and the story line was more edge of your seat then most of the others in the series.. You don't have to read the entire series to enjoy this book, but the characters will make more sense if you do.
I particularly appreciated a scene that was both romantic and terrifying at the same time. There is no doubt left as to the extremes the main couple would go to for each other.
All of Victoria Laurie's books are my favorites, but this one might just edge out the others.
I have read all of Victoria Laurie's books.
I've read all of the Abby Cooper books and this has to be my all time FAVORITE! The story grips you from page one. Although I got frustrated with Abby for ducking all efforts to actually take charge and plan her own wedding it all resolved to a highly satisfying ending. This was an intricate, well thought out mystery that I could not put down! I salute Ms. Laurie for her skill with this book. Thanks for a GREAT read/listen!! :)
I have loved all of the psychic eye books except Lethal Outlook. I was a little concerned Mrs Laurie was loosing her touch. That was a hollow concern. Deadly Forecast is one of the best, if not the best so far. The only one of the series that comes close, or surpasses, is Vision Impossible: I haven't decided yet. What I really like about this book is the dual timelines of each chapter. That approach, which is new to this series, makes for incredible suspense ... and of course Elizabeth Michaels' narration only enhances the drama. I Found myself laughing out loud several times. Deadly forecast is a must for fans of this series and anyone else wanting a funny, suspenseful, entertaining thriller.
great story line, lots of unexpected twists, keeps you guessing up to the end. good narrator
