Publisher's Summary

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.

Mystery solving couple

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!

Great Series

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.

Cozy mystery that you can easily solve

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.

Just okay for me

Any additional comments?

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.

Fun story line

Any additional comments?

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.

Characterless

The narration spoiled this for me - sounded like a prissy librarian reading the words off the page. Once I got beyond the sort of characterless reading, the story was rather banal and unrealistic - with her "spidey sense" and intuition the heroine was really beyond silly to do what she did when she did it. I listened to it all - more because I was on a long walk and couldn't be bothered to change books than the plot which was obvious to blind Freddie from the off.

What happened to Abby???

Would you try another book from Victoria Laurie and/or Elizabeth Michaels?

I will try the next one. If that doesn't work, I'll move on.

Has A Vision of Murder turned you off from other books in this genre?

No.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Yes. Doesn't do well with voice differentiation or high emotion.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger. This book intended on focusing on Abby and Dutch's relationship with which the author obviously had no writing experience. If this were the first book, it never would have been published. Abby was a flat out ignorant beyotch. There was no connection between her and Dutch and I couldn't understand what he saw in her. She repeatedly threw common sense out the door and had major attitude when her stupidity was pointed out to her. How can someone who's supposed to be intuitive lack so much common sense. Dave was such a nice guy and Abby totally messed him over. I'll listen to the next book but if she doesn't get a clue I'll dump this series and move on. The narrator was great but given the material, it didn't matter.
