About the Author

Real-life professional psychic Victoria Laurie drew from her career as a gifted intuitive to create the characters of Abigail Cooper and M. J. Holliday. She lives in beautiful Austin, Texas, with two spoiled dachshunds, Lilly and Toby, and one opinionated parrot named Doc. 

More About the Author

When I was in the 7th grade I took one of those career aptitude tests - you know, the ones where you answer a bunch of questions and the results indicate what profession you'd best be suited for? Yeah, well my test results indicated I was best suited for a career as a government spy.

A SPY!

I think I had the coolest results in the entire class. :)

Needless to say, I did not follow that particular career path - or maybe I just took the more indirect route. In my thirties a very good friend of mine who is now one of the world's most renowned psychic mediums suggested I stop ignoring my talents and dive right into the professional world of a psychic intuitive. On a lark, I did. And the results were pretty mind-blowing. Within just a few short weeks even I couldn't deny it - so much of what I predicted for total strangers was coming true and I really had to accept the "gift" so to speak.

Over the years I've built a really fabulous clientele and all those experiences have helped me create the Psychic Eye Mysteries, the Ghost Hunter Mysteries, and - for children - Oracles of Delphi Keep. And along that way I discovered my true love - writing.

Writing is one of those passions that gets me out of bed in the morning and invigorates my day. I love spinning a good yarn, and when I feel I actually get it right - wow! There is no better feeling.

In fact, the other day I was kicking back after a looooong day of writing, which ended in the completion of a manuscript and I remember just marveling in the fact that I actually get paid to daydream! I can't think of a more satisfying way to spend a life. And let's face it - it's a whole lot safer than working some covert operation. Although - I'm pretty sure the benefits might be better at the CIA. Still, I'll stick to my daydreams...at least for now... :)

I love Victoria Laurie novels but lately I am a bit confused with the trend her Abby novels are taking.

Mixing her 2 characters: Abby and MJ was a bit shocking, specially since Abby's first partner was someone else. It would have made more sense to bring her in, not MJ.

I am not fond of the tendency to drive some characters to such a level of absurdity. For instance, Gilley is beginning to be a pain in the rear, always overreacting and being a complete fool. What is the purpose of him? His character is not funny, just annoying. And Abby's sister is also too unreal. I used to love her character, but seems that the books are leaning towards comic histrionics.

On the other hand, Victoria uses a very interesting narrative style this time, and Abby is still a very attractive character.

I look for to the Abby Cooper mysteries. This book was no different. For the most part I enjoyed it. The mystery was solid, Dutch and Abbey were great. However, the book lost a star with Abby's sister Cat and MJ. #1 I don't like when books go back and forth with the past and present. It doesn't increase the suspense it only becomes a distraction. #2 The inclusion of MJ and Gilley was annoying. The two characters were out of place and didn't add to the progression of the story. They could have been eliminated and Candace and Milo could have played a bigger role in the story. #3 Cat was completely out of character. In the past she has always been a little over the top. But she has never been so obnoxious and over bearing. I expected her to plan an extravagant wedding, but I also expected the wedding to be sophisticated and stylish. The wedding that she planned did not reflect anyone's style. It was actually tacky and offensive. If it was meant to include humor into the story it fell far from it's mark. #4 although Abby's parents were mentioned in the book and it was explained why they would not be attending the wedding, I expected them to attend anyway. In previous books they were described as social climbers and wanting to be in the center of attention. Plus they have a relationship with Cat. The addition of the parents could have served as comic relief and unnecessary drama instead of including MJ and Gilley, and going back and forth with the past and present. I found myself skipping through the book at some points because it was too much. I will buy the next book but if it continues to over exaggerate comic situations I might have to say goodbye to Abby and Dutch.

I was going to stop reading this series. Abby Cooper (the main character) was becoming so high maintenance and so needy that it was becoming hard to read. However, the first books in this series were so good, I decided to give it one more try. Boy, am I glad I did. The story was suspenseful, humorous, and a sweet love story. Can't wait for the next one.

I have been a long time fan of Victoria Laurie.
To see how she has grown as a writer, an exciting storyteller is amazing.

Deadly Forecast brings two of Ms. Laurie's main characters from two of the three series she writes- Abigail Cooper, her first heroine who not only solved the crimes, but taught the reader what a psychic does and what her 'Crew' or Spirit Guides/Helpers on the Other Side do to help people learn and grow, and M.J.Holliday, the leader of a cable show that documents ghosts/hauntings.

Together, but separately, they give their takes and talents to understand terroristic-like bombings that are happening in the Austin area.

Dutch and Abby are nearing their wedding day, but Abby has premonitions something will go wrong and the wedding will be tragically ruined.

The tension is high, the action is fast paced and 'whodunit' couldn't be guessed by the most savvy mystery solvers.

Ms. Laurie always knew how to tell a story; now she adds the tension that keeps you on the edge of your seat hoping for the best in a seemingly impossible situation. I think it is her best Abby Cooper novel to date, with kudos to M.J. And Gilly from her other series.

To see her growth as an author and storyteller makes me proud.

Always great reads, in Deadly Forecast, she has outdone herself and this is very much a novel to read for Victoria Laurie fans and fans to be.

I know her own Spiritual Crew is very proud of her accomplishments.

I'm a huge fan of Victoria Laurie, and this series! The author told this story as a back and forth flashback thing. You start out at the peak of the end and go back and forth until you catch up to the first chapter. It is the first time, with this author, I set the story down easily and didn't mind having to wait to get back to it. Then I just wanted to get it done. The story was wonderful with all the friends we've come to love and a great mystery, I just hated the delivery.

This was my least favorite of the series. As I matter of fact I would not have even bothered getting to the end of the book, if I had not bought it with whispered sync. So I listen to the book via bluetooth only when I was in the car. I liked it better when Abby was working on her own or with Candice. I think that it'd gotten over board with her getting involve with all the agencies. (FBI, CIA, NSA, Home Land Security etc) Every time the stories gets more elaborate and unbelievable than the next. I spent a lot of time rolling my eyes to the back of my head with the last 2 books. Abby did not even use much of her intuitive gifts in this book, she mainly focused on how to duck her wedding or cling to Dutch. It's almost like she is unaware of the risk that an FBI agent that works in the field faces daily.

The part of the story that I say is inconsistent was when she reveal that her parents were physically abusive. In no part of the series was that ever mentioned. Her parents were social climbers and distant to the kids. More so with Abby because of her gifts. Now that the story line has changed, it truly does not make any sense why Cat would remain close to them and entertain their crazy whims. Or why she has not stood up to her parents and hold them accountable for throwing Abby down a flight of stairs among other physical, mental and negligent forms of abuse suffered by Abby.

I am tired of Abby always getting close to being killed in every book. Before she can even recover from one near death experience, she is always seconds from dying again in another. She is a living miracle, living through many concussion , shot to the chest, shattered hips from plunging down from the sky.........

Milo had such a small role in this book. In fact he never spoke a word.
