Publisher's Summary

Abby Cooper, Psychic Eye, is having a hard time getting over a gunshot wound from her last case-especially because she didn't see the shots coming. Out of work and second-guessing her abilities, she tries to get back in the saddle by helping her boyfriend Dutch with some of his FBI cases. And soon enough, her intuition returns-with a vengeance.

    "Abby takes an undercover job"

    One of the things I enjoy about this series is that the characters have to live with the consequences. Abby got shot in the last book, so she is still having some problems. Candice her client/friend has moved to town and now she has a professional partner in investigating crimes. There was more mystery/detecting than the previous book. I enjoyed reading about Abby trying out to be a real sleuth going undercover for the first time. I also really liked that Candice is a kickass no-nonsense type gal who takes the more reluctant Abby on adventures. Some parts I felt she was being too pushy, but I think their relationship makes a good contrast. The regular surrounding characters including her sister, Milo and Dave makes appearances, too. I think this series is getting better as it progresses. Good thing there is more to read!

    "I like the story-but not a fan of narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to Crime Seen the most enjoyable?

    I am enjoying the story line, but not the narrator...


    What didn’t you like about Elizabeth Michaels’s performance?

    I don't like the way she reads...too slow, no characterization.

    "Enjoy the series"

    I truly enjoy Victoria Laurie as an author and was excited to audibly read my 1st book by her. While I enjoyed the story, I was not a big fan of the narration of any of the main characters. I always interpretted Abby in my reading of this series as more factual about her psychic moments so the interpretive reading of Abby's clarvoyant moments left something to be desired in my mind. Toward the end of the audible book I stopped noticing this issue but I think I will read the rest of the series.

    Sci-fi, detective, cozy. Only give 5s to those books I think stand above the rest. 4 is a good solid book. 3 is average, nothing special.

    "Abby gets into trouble, Surprise!!"

    Great series, very light, just fun. A good addition to the series. Abby is a bit lacking in common sense, still makes for a fun story.

    "Abby: good psychic, horrible person"
    Where does Crime Seen rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's official. I don't like Abby. She's childish, moody, dangerously impulsive, has poor people skills and is possibly stupid. I have no respect for Dutch. For a big, bad FBI agent he lets her run all over him. He is not allowed to dictate to her or treat her like a child but it's perfectly okay for Abby to talk down to him and treat him like an idiot. Oh and lie, lie, lie. She goes on a pretend date for her business and he catches her at the restaurant. That night she decids to move out. Her reason? His cat hates her. Oh that's not suspicious at all. Dutch reacts as if she kicked him? That's it? Really? Who wouldn't suspect her of moving out to be more free to cheat on him. Especially since she jumped in the sack with a guy in the last book. I gave the book high marks because the series has kept me entertained but I just don't like Abby. I would not have her for a friend. I would visit her for a psychic reading but that's about it. I love the narrator. She does a fine job but she is not responsible for Abby's labile emotions.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Abby's sister Kat. I like her bright personality and her strong connection to Abby.


    What about Elizabeth Michaels’s performance did you like?

    She has a great voice and keeps the tone light for these books. They are not Shakespear.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Good god no. This is my last book for this series. Abby has gotten on my very last nerve.

    "Great story!"

    I love this series! My only negative is the narator's rhythm of speaking and her continual pronunciation of cavalry as calvary. It is very distracting.

    "Just alright."

    More of an investigation story then a mystery. I get that the author was trying to make Abby recovering from her injury realistic but some of the gym/recovering scenes were boring. There are also issues with things like Abby not being able to lie to her boyfriend at the beginning but then lying to him with no issues towards the end.

    I once owned the bookstore A Novel Idea. I sold mysteries and cat humor. Put a cat in a mystery, and I'm likely to read it. Book Reviewer.

    "Abby having a hard time recovering from gunshot"

    Psychic Abby Cooper is having a hard time recovering from a point blank gunshot to her chest. First she must recover from the actual wound, for which her doctor prescribes rest with lots of sleeping for at least a month. Then slowly she can resume normal activities such as dressing herself, cooking, walking the dog, etc. The couch is too comfy and the dog too easy to cuddle and Abby just doesn’t feel like getting all the way better because that would be resuming her work schedule doing psychic readings for clients. After three months without a single reading, Abby is fearful that she can even do the job any more, let alone for a client list that’s gone cold.

    For her recovery period, Abby moved into her boyfriend Dutch’s home. He works for the FBI and begins bringing home a few files, telling Abby he sure could use her kind of help. He’s respectful when he says that; he is a true believer in Abby’s abilities, not everyone’s reaction to the knowledge of those psychic abilities. “Dutch” has begun calling Abby “Edgar” after the man who “invented” psychic abilities, or perhaps I really should say he’s the man who put psychic abilities on the map. It’s an affectionate nickname. Dutch is using it more and more to prod Abby off the couch and because he is constantly amazed at her true abilities.

    While Dutch is working one day, Abby picks up one of those files he’s casually brought home. She’s drawn into the case since it involves Dutch’s partner Milo and the death of his former partner. In addition, Abby’s best girlfriend, her “BFF” who is a private eye, decides to move to an office. Since they get along so well and work behind the scenes so well, they decide to share office space. Abby has her office, her reading room, and Candace has her own office. Now Abby has a new place to go to spend her days, all the more reason to recover from that gunshot.

    Each of the characters grows in this book. Abby returns to a healthier life, Dutch has shared his work with Abby, Milo is finally getting justice on behalf of his former partner, Candace has found a home for her daily grind, and even the dogs are making friends. All this doesn’t mean there aren’t perils to face. Put Abby and Candace together and you’ve got trouble. Candace believes that Milo’s former partner is innocent, and now the man caught is up for parole, a situation that brings everyone’s working eyes to the same places.

    Abby takes this opportunity to describe her intuitive process, how she connects to her spirit guides, how her “crew” assist her, what she does to prepare for a reading, and fascinating information that helps the reader understand her process, especially as doubts plague her while she recovers.

    I thought the audio version of this book was an excellent addition to the Psychic Eye series. The narration was well done, and her descriptions felt so much more personal and one-on-one. Don’t miss this turning point for Abby’s living crew of friends.

    "Do your research"

    as a Michigan native it irritates me how the reader does not know how to correctly pronounce some of the street names in Metro Detroit. Otherwise good story.
