    1. Book two in the Psychic Eye Mystery Series. This one starts off where book one ends. I don't want to give anything too juicy away so I will try my best to review with as little spoiler as I can. So much happens in this book. It was hard to believe it was only 296 pages. I flew this book again like I was hooked on book crack. I loved it. I love Abby Cooper and Love Dutch. I really think Victoria Laurie is one of my new favorite authors. I can't get enough of them right now. In this book you deal [...]



    2. When I bought this book, I believed that I was buying the second book in Victoria Laurie Ghoul series. I wasn't into very far when I realize something was wrong. I finished and have given it 5 stars because it deserves it. However, I won't be reading more of this series as I felt the violence and tragic scenes more than I like. I also could tell what would happen as the story progressed. There is nothing new about a bully who uses the gun to enforce his wishes. I seldom make a mistake like this [...]


    3. ★★★★✩ (This is a review of the audiobook.) Okay, you definitely have to suspend belief in this series. There must have been a dozen time when Abbyshouldhave gone to the police99% of the population would have! But then, her not doing so make for many more "Eeep!" moments.



    4. In this book, psychic Abby Cooper gets caught up with the mob and is trying to help the local police catch a serial rapist. Abby also has major problems with her boyfriend, a FBI agent who is under cover. The book was a fast easy read.


    5. One thing bothered me about this one. In both books, there is an initial suspect who is not "the guy" but is just a rather pathetic and creepy little man with a pronounced overbite. Different characters, different investigation so why the overbite in both cases? Maybe the author knows a creepy little man with a pronounced overbite but she needs to get a new inspiration if this series is going to carry well through all 7 books. If there's one more creepy loser with a major overbite in this series [...]


    6. I really enjoy this author. I started out with the Ghost Hunter series and did enjoy those books very much. I was disappointed to find I had read all the books currently out. So, I decided to start this series, even though it was not quite in the same vein. It did not disappoint.I am really enjoying the life of Abby Cooper, the clairvoyant, intuitive psychic. While she has special talents, I find her very human. Of course, she is human – she is not magical, just psychic. However, I find her ve [...]


    7. The second in The Psychic Eye Mystery series by Victoria Laurie, "Better Read than Dead" doesn't disappoint!!It's another page-turning thriller! Filled with twists and turns, it kept me engrossed and entertained (and a smidge scared!). I LOVED IT!Abby Cooper is a psychic intuitive working out of a small office in Royal Oak, Detroit. "Better Read than Dead" sees the return of many beloved characters from the first book ("Abby Cooper: Psychic Eye") including her super hot boyfriend "Dutch", his (e [...]


    8. This is the second book in the Psychic Eye mystery series and it was just as good as the first was. In this book, Abby is doing a favor for a friend and working as a tarot card reader at a wedding reception. When a client comes in and her psychic guides are telling her that he's a killer she realizes she's attending a mob wedding. As Abby tries to deal with her professional problems she is also trying to deal with her new relationship with Dutch. He's back from Quantico and working for the FBI, [...]


    9. I realized long ago that when reading cozy mysteries I needed to forget about reality and common sense in order to enjoy these cutesy books. In real life, these women would get themselves killed while in books they are klutzy heroines. Case in point, if someone from the mob is harassing you, wouldn't you go to your FBI boyfriend or your cop friend? Why in the world did Abby try to deal with the mob on her own? Well because where would the plot be without the mafia scare.I like the characters of [...]


    10. This is a fun mystery series with a psychic as the main character. I liked the second one even better than the first


    11. Reviewed by Whitney@Shooting Stars ReviewsAbby is excited to see her boyfriend Dutch again when he comes back from training with the FBI. However, she has to help out a friend the night he comes back, and when Dutch introduces her to his partner things don't look so good. Especially when Dutch doesn't stand up for her, and makes her feel like the bad guy. So, Abby is left on her own to help out Milo with a rapist case, and the mob is hitting up Abby for her gifts. I thought this book was really [...]


    12. Abby Cooper has to pay back a favor to a psychic friend, doing readings at a wedding. What she does not know at first is this is a mob wedding.  After leaving in a hurry Abby is forced to read for the mob boss, who is dying, in order to protect herself and her family and friends.  Luckily Dutch is there to help her out and he and Milo come up with a plan to help Abby save the day.  A bit edgier than the first book which means sometimes you have to step away for a moment or two before diving r [...]


    13. 5/23/13So. Just to be clear, you're being terrorized by the mob, and instead of telling your FBI boyfriend or cop best friend, you figure you'll just keep quiet and deal with it yourself??? And when your burglar alarm goes off, and the cop who shows up to check it out grudgingly looks around your house, then steals your underwear, you figure the best thing to do is nothing????? Really?Finished 7/2/13This is the 2nd book in the Psychic Eye Series by Victoria Laurie, and I'm not sure I'll read any [...]


    14. Second in the Psychic Eye Series, Better Read Than Dead by Victoria Laurie is just as engaging as the first book.

She feels terrible but has no choice as a fellow psychic, Kendal, is calling in his marker from helping her after her [...]

Wirklich albtraumhaft!Etwa zwei Monate sind vergangen und Dutch, Abbys neuer sexy Freund, hat mitlerweile seine Ausbildung zum FBI Agenten abgeschlossen und kehrt nach hause zurück.

    17.

    18. "Word of Abby's talents reading tarot cards has reached a mob boss who wants her help in some business matters and he doesn't take no for an answer. When the police seek out her psychic intuition to shed light on a masked man who's been attacking women, Abby finds herself working both sides of the law on her own, leading her to wonder, why didn't I see this coming?"I really enjoyed the first book in the Psychic Eye series and so I was naturally enthusiastic about this one.In it Abby is once agai [...]


    19. In this second book of Victoria Laurie's Psychic Eye Mystery series, we see profession psychic Abby Cooper doing what she does best: sticking her nose directly where it doesn't belong. Not that she does it willingly, of course. After being forced into performing at a high end wedding by a friend that she owed a favour to, Abby reads for a person whose killed a person. Or maybe more than one. She quickly comes to the realization that the wedding she was attending was for the daughter of the Greek [...]

    21. This was a fantastic book. I enjoyed it from start to finish. First and foremost I love Abby Cooper. She is such a strong character, beautifully written by Laurie. She has a distinct personality and a very interesting psychic gift. She is a strong, no-nonsense type of gal, and dare I say Abby don’t take no shit. She’s a fighter with an inherent will to survive and compassion and steel to see justice dispensed.She’s a very unique character with enough quirks and flaws to make her interestin [...]


    22. This was the second book in the Abby Cooper Psychic Eye Mystery series that I have read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! It had a little bit of everything in it - mystery, suspense, and of course the psychic element.Abby Cooper is a professional psychic, and is in real trouble! A woman who came to her for a reading is found raped and badly beaten and the police enlist Abby's help in finding the culprit, who seems to be a serial rapist, which she readily agrees to do. Unfortunately, there are other [...]

    26. Should you read this book? Answer: YesHere's why:Victoria Laurie yet again weaves a realistic yet magical tale of Abby Cooper a psychic intuitive who gets herself into messy situations as she works to help the local detectives and her FBI boyfriend solve mysteries. This installment in the series finds Abby mixed up with the Detroit mob as she works with the local police to catch a serial rapist.While not quite as good as the first book, this one definitely keeps you guessing until the very end. [...]


    27. This book is a zinger! I enjoyed the first book in this series, Abby Cooper: Psychic Eye, but this second book had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I loved the ramped up intensity and how delicately Abby had to tip toe her way through all the plot twists.This book reads like a ride at an amusement park. At first you are sitting in your roomy car sliding left or right quite predictably until-What the! you are jerked to a 90degree uphill climb and from there it's anybody's guess which direction [...]


    28. Abby is in way over her head when she accidentally gets involved with a mob family to top a few very bad days. She can't seem to catch a break anywhere, with problems arising at work and then her dating life and every other aspect of her life.I had mostly the same problems with Abby as in the first book, namely her inability to ask for help when she sorely needs it, her knack of not sharing vital information and the stubborn way she insists of doing everything on her own and feeling guilty for t [...]
