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... :)

We shouldn't expect too much in the way of maturity and sophistication.

The girls do what they do best, solving the crime anyway they see fit, even when it lands them in handcuffs!

After reading book 7 in the Abby Cooper series I can honestly say this is the best one thus far!

While I'm not normally a fan of these psychic types of novels, I've enjoyed this series in the past. However, I didn't think this one was all that good.

The thing I found most annoying -- why can't these people talk instead of singing and squeaking everything? I felt like I was reading a story with Minnie Mouse and friends as the main characters!

While the concept was good, I didn't like the way the author played it out where Abby and Candice were concerned. They repeatedly disobeyed direct orders from the FBI and did whatever they wanted whenever they wanted while the head FBI guy just kind of sat around and smirked at them while letting them get away with everything. It started to seem that the author was sending a message -- as long as you're dating an FBI agent, you can break whatever laws and rules you want and do whatever you want...and when an agent or someone in authority tries to intervene, they'll be stopped and made to look like a fool. And yes, we'll take the word of a civilian psychic over the word of trained FBI agents and profilers when it comes to solving cases...even if she can't manage to act like a professional while working on a case her boyfriend is involved with (I mean, calling Dutch "cowboy" and "sweetheart" in FBI group meetings? Get serious!) and her partner acts like some kind of smug nutjob. Abby put Dutch's job in jeopardy so many times, yet there wasn't one cross word from him about it? The whole thing just got comical after awhile.

I admit to not knowing anything at all about psychics, but I just find some of the stuff in these books to be questionable. In the last book, it was why, if Abby had intuition telling her not to leave a casino and wins a large sum of money, every psychic on the planet isn't out getting rich in Vegas.

So let me get this straight. A teenage girl has been missing for four months. The "psychic" knows she's still alive but running out of time. Rather than spending her time trying to locate the girl who's STILL alive, trapped with a psycho killer and going to die soon, she traipses all over using her psychic abilities to tune in on finding first the missing corpses, then the NEXT potential victim, leaving the girl trapped with a murderer for a few extra days, just because? Uh hello, is Abby Cooper the single most idiotic, completely clueless dimwit on the planet or what?

I mean seriously, if your main character is a complete lackwit who can't prioritize better than that, what's the point of even reading the series. I don't root for stupid.

Not sure about this book, even though I've read all seven books, Laurie is now throwing things in that really make the story seem silly.

Abby Cooper and best friend private investigator Candice team up to help the FBI find three missing college students. Not only are all three missing, and presumed dead, but they all happen to be the children of important political leaders.

Bill Gaston, who has worked with Abby in the past, and has full faith in her abilities, brings her in much to the chagrin of the ever lovable Brice Harrington, who decided to put Abby through quite a bit of harassment. But when Abby starts putting the pieces together, much to the dismay of Harrington, what can he do, but follow Abby to the rather convoluted ending to this story.

Gee, a cold-hearted political figure with a secret life. People damaged in the process. Secrets kept at any cost. Seems to much in the realm of been there, done that. Hopefully, the next book will make a better impression.

I used to love this series. The last few books as well as this one
have not been up to par. Now Abby giggles, squeals, trembles and
crys. Dutch calls her Babe and doll.As mentioned in another review,
Abby does not target the missing teen, instead wanders all over the place. I want my old Abby back. It is like having a boy friend gave
her a lobotomy. I do not believe that I will be going to Texas with
Abby.
So many of the various series that I avidly follow have gone belly up.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've read all of Laurie's books and sometimes I ask myself the simple question: WHY? This is the seventh installment of the Abby Cooper series and while Ms. Laurie's writing is better in this one, it is still a long way from good. What keeps me coming back in hopes of a stellar book are the flashes of really good writing, a generally tight plot and somewhere in all the prose are the likable characters.

Ms. Laurie's writing seems very inconsistent to me. When she talks of psychic issues her writing always comes across as strong and confident, but often when she is not dealing with the psychic realm her writing is very uneven.

One of the most annoying features of her books are her attempts at humor with her characters and their dialogue as well as their propensity towards nicknames and Doom with a View was no exception. Both Abby, the protagonist and Dutch, her lover are in their 30's and often their dialogue is that of a 12 or 13 year old. The Bogart "sweethot" is so way overdone as is their simpy terms of "Edgar" and "Cowboy." I've lived in Michigan and traveled throughout the state and I don't know that I ever met anyone who talks like her characters talk--in Michigan or in any of the other 49 states.

Ms. Laurie's grasp of dialogue is improving, but is still poor. Her characters don't sound like they are mature adults, but often sound more like teens vying for attention. However, this book was truly an improvement over the last six. The focus on Candace and Harrison provided a welcome relief to the often immature relationship Abby has with Dutch. Personally I am tired of the silly nicknames, winking and giggling and squealing her main characters go through. How many times do you wink at someone in a week?
