Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author of the “enthralling thriller” Vision Impossible is back with her newest Psychic Eye mystery, in which psychic Abigail Cooper must rely on her inner vision to search for a missing woman.

When a mysterious client approaches Abby with a cryptic message about a young mother who has vanished, Abby is more than willing to get involved. After all, it’s the perfect distraction from dealing with the headache of her sister Cat – who has flown into town and turned Abby and Dutch’s impending nuptials into Weddingpalooza.

After Abby recruits her business partner and BFF, Candice, to assist, they meet with the parents of the missing woman. But the parents refuse to put their faith in a psychic. What’s worse, due to a grave misunderstanding, the family suspects Abby has a connection to their daughter’s husband – the man they believe to be responsible for her disappearance. So while the family may be blind to the truth, with a potential killer in her sights, Abby is determined to keep her eyes wide open.

I was not disappointed

Abby is back in Austin where she belongs surrounded by the friends that make this a great series. The plot was fast paced and complex. I was unable to guess the killer and enjoyed watching the story unfold. I look forward to listening to the next one. This is a must buy for cozy mystery listeners.

Excellent - One of the Best!

This series has really evolved for the better. The last two books have been my favorites! If you were hoping for a new twist in this series, you owe it to yourself to give this book a listen! It kept me guessing till the end! Good job, Victoria!

Weak Psychic; Weak Mystery

She's an intuitive who reads events in other's lives like a magazine. The phrase "in the ether" is used 8000 times. She has a sister so intrusive and irritating that no sane member of the human race would let it go unchecked. The narrator's tone of voice; especially when she was doing Abby was the type you'd use to address a classroom of elementary students. All-in-all extremely disappointing.

Fun and light.

Not her best but pretty good for the style and genre. A few plot twists. Fast paced. I think it would make an entertaining read for the car or while doing tasks where you want to keep one part of your brain on what you're doing and the other on a fun story. I've liked some of her other's more. Seemed on the light side.

Terrible reader

What did you like best about Lethal Outlook? What did you like least?

The narrator cannot pronounce words correctly to save her live. For instance, one of the most annoying mispronunciations for me is cavalry. She keeps pronouncing it as Calvary. When you want help don't ask for a biblical location! Her voice is also nasal and she sounds like an old woman. If I didn't like the series I could never put up with her.

An Enjoyable Read!

Would you consider the audio edition of Lethal Outlook to be better than the print version?

I would not consider the audio to be better than the print version. The narrator, Elizabeth Michaels, seems to be getting more and more shrill which I find irritating. I went back and listened to early books in the series and didn't notice so much screeching in the earlier books.

What does Elizabeth Michaels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Continuity in character voices is nice. Except for Cat. I don't believe the owner of a multi-million dollar conglomerate would demonstrate excitability as a shrill air-head.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No extreme reactions to the book, just a few giggles - no tears. I did enjoy it and look forward to the next installment.

Any additional comments?

It seems that the main character is becoming more and more self-centered. In other words, she is not as likable as she used to be. I especially disliked her complete and total lack of interest in planning her wedding - which wasn't explained until the end of the book. Explaining her hesitancy early on could have been a great addition to the storyline itself. In the past the main character used her intuitive gifts for helping others, not for avoiding her sister more than once a book.

Embarrassed I bought it

What disappointed you about Lethal Outlook?

I’m embarrassed I bought this thing. How did she get published and who is reading her? I feel sorry for them. The reader sounds and purposely talks like a little girl throughout the whole book. Don’t believe me? Listen to her. The author would do herself, and the naive reader a favor and look at good ‘who done its’ and see the placement of characters who sound and act like people, not, “Oh goody! I’m living in happy land!” Yuk! The reader purposely sounds like a little girl. The writer: OK, her grammar was correct, but that doesn't mean she should be published. Nauseating

What could Victoria Laurie have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not become a writer

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Her high pitched voice and the tone she assumes, as if she lives in a Happy Land too!

What character would you cut from Lethal Outlook?

All

Series going downhill

This book sees Elly being even more of a weak-willed-wimp than ever - she allows Dutch and Candice to coerce her into accepting a gun as a wedding gift and agreeing to practice with it at the shooting range - they COERCE her and she's still willing to marry the man and work with Candice!

She allows Candice push her around (physically in one instance and causing an already injured Abby to be further injured) without retaliating.

She allows Cat to get way with paying a couple of hired thugs to abduct her with enough force to hurt her already injured hips and, once again, doesn't retaliate in any way (she should have slapped hte woman senseless, at the very least), and she spends mst of the book avoiding Cat's steamrolling plans for Abby and Dutch's wedding instead of growing a backbone telling her to back off.

Really, Abby is less and less attractive as a main protagonist as this series progresses. Her fiance has coerced her at regular intervals (into remaining in a dangerous situation, in the previous book, because it would be going against HIS lofty princiiples to back out, and so he shamelessly manipulates her into staying because she knows that he would die if she backed out). Really the man isn't such a hot catch and she should cut him loose if he has so little regard for her beliefs and principles.

But at least the narrator has finally learned to pronounce "cavalry" (a word that crops up at least once per book and has, until now, usually been pronounced "calvary")
