かなり久しぶりの彼氏dutchとのデートをpsychicの先輩??Kendalに邪魔をされたところから始まります。

Kendalに借りを返すために結婚式場で彼と、結婚式の出席者にタロットをすることになったAbby。

客の一人の男がマフィアの一人であると知ってしまったことから、結婚する夫婦や関係者がマフィアの家族なのだと知ってしまったAbby・・・

そこからまたまた事件に巻き込まれ危ない目にあいます。

今回は彼氏Dutchとの関係も微妙になってしまい、イライラしたり悲しんだりします・・・
その上、元Dutchのパートナーだった警察官のMiloにレイプ犯を捕まえるための助けを求められ・・・

会話が面白い!かなり引き込まれます。嫌なことが続き、やっと気持ち的に上がったAbbyにまた試練!です。

ハラハラドキドキのミステリーと恋愛が楽しめます。

英語も簡単ですし、2日で読み終えてしまいました。

次の巻もありますよ☆彡

しかし、現実的な捜査などで犯人を探していくミステリーが好きな人には向いていないシリーズだと思います。

Abbyはpsychicで、第六感を頼りにして犯人を見つけていくので・・・・

5つ星のうち 2.0 Better Read than Dead - Victoria Laurie - Audible version 2013/7/2
投稿者 Heather B. - Reviewer at Smut Matters - (Amazon.com)

This is the 2nd book in the Psychic Eye Series by Victoria Laurie, and I'm not sure I'll read any more of them. Her main character, Abby, just makes silly decision after silly decision, and it gets really difficult to suspend disbelief enough to go along with most of them. For example, and there are some minor spoilers here, if your boyfriend is an FBI agent, and his best friend is a local cop, wouldn't you tell one or both of them, if you were being threatened by the mob??? And not veiled threats, either. They sent someone to her house to poison her dog and someone to wreck her car and frame her for the accident. But, no. She tells no one about any of this. She originally got into this mess because she agreed to help her friend Kendall do readings at a wedding after the original psychic backed out. During the wedding, they realized it was a mob wedding, so they got their stuff and ran. Really, that's your solution when you realize you're mixed up with the mob? Take their money and run? Brilliant. How shocking that they wanted their money back and got her mixed up into the rest of this mess.

The narration was ok. Some of it was the narrator (I got tired of hearing drop the final "r"s from words - mirror became mirra, terror became terra, etc.), and some of it was the story. The story is in 1st person; we're in Abby's head. We know if she's telling a lie. We don't need that "liar, liar, pants on fire" when she tells a lie. We know. It's constant, especially when the mob is after you and you're determined to keep it from the cops and FBI agents in your life. It set my teeth on edge every time I heard it. I can understand it when someone tells Abby a lie, and her intuition tells her they're lying, but we do NOT need it every time Abby tells one. There are a lot of repetitive phrases, and I think you notice them more when you're listening to the book. "Liar, liar, pants on fire" and "left side, feeling heavy", "right side, light and airy" over and over.

I also can't understand what was happening with Dutch, the FBI agent, and his new partner. Apparently the new (female) partner is extremely hot, so Abby gets drunk at lunch (from one glass of wine) and proceeds to act like a high schooler who just found her boyfriend eating lunch with the head cheerleader. Not only does she come across as immature and ridiculous, she makes Dutch look stupid, too, in front of a new partner who's also his superior. Abby acts like this every time the partner is even mentioned in conversation. Yes, she's able to psychically find out that the partner does want Dutch, but so what? She also knows Dutch doesn't want her, so where's the dilemma? And instead of telling Dutch how all of this makes her feel, she stamps her foot and says "she started it!" and pouts. I didn't love the way Dutch acted sometimes, I thought he was bullying Abby a lot of the time, but I can't really be on her side, either.

There was also a huge plot hole that bugged the crap out of me, and was never resolved. Spoiler - when Abby and Milo are watching the video of the attack on Cat, they see Cat on the phone talking to Abby, then Cat being attacked, then Cat being rescued. Completely ignoring the fact that her attacker spoke to her before he attacked her, without his mask, while she was on the phone with Abby. Abby heard Cat speaking to him "Oh, it's 11:15. Golly, Abby, men in this city sure are gorgeous", but he's not on the video of the attack. Why? Because Abby would have recognized him and ended that whole story line immediately. So instead, that whole part of the event is just ignored. I can't stand stuff like that.

I don't know if I'll keep going with this series or not. I might give it one more, because I like the concept, but if it's the same, I probably wouldn't go beyond that.
5つ星のうち 4.0 Delightful sequel 2014/10/21

This charming light story blends mystery and the supernatural to tell the story of Abby Cooper's unwitting involvement with a powerful mobster who has ways of making her talk to her guides... It's the second in the "Psychic Eye" series and it lives up to the promise of the first book. Recommended for anyone looking for a cozy mystery book -- sprinkled with humor and close calls.
5つ星のうち 5.0 Great book and great series 2015/4/17

Great book and great series. Only problem is her great distaste about any person who is not stereotypically gorgeous. She makes derogatory statements about every one else like anorexia people, fat people, ugly people, etc. It heavily distracts the reader from the story line.

What a fun series! While I have no psychic abilities, it's not hard to see a great future for Abby Cooper! After reading Psychic Eye, I looked forward to the release of Better Read Than Dead, and was not disappointed.

When Abby's friend Kendal asks for a favor, her intuition was buzzing in her head, warning her away. But, since Abby owed Kendal a favor, she ignored her guides and ended up reading Tarot cards at a mob wedding. YIKE! The mob don "contacted" Abby seeking her services, very persuasively, and Abby found herself complying, afraid for the safety of herself and her family. I love Abby's sister Cat. Though Abby does not take advantage, Cat is wealthy. She has "everything", yet is a teeny bit jealous over Abby's psychic gift, trying her hand and failing at Tarot card reading.

The book moves smoothly, with many interesting examples of Abby's ability guiding her along. For example, the picture in her mind of a mailman represented the post office, which she realized too late. Also, I love her inboard lie detector - how handy would that be! My kids would sure be in trouble if I had that ability!

I don't see much of a future between Abby and Dutch. I suppose since he's a cop he is skeptical. But he's such a jerk about it! And blindsiding her with meeting "Joe", his partner who turns out to be a woman. Sheesh! Well, I guess it keeps me rooting for Abby. I mean if his character was sugary, we'd be bored.

I look forward to the next book coming in December!

Victoria Laurie has now been added to my short list: any new book by her must be read ASAP! Better Read Than Dead is the 2nd book about Abby Cooper. Abby is a gifted psychic who lives in Michigan. In this second book we learn more about Abby's friends and relatives and we also learn more about Abby's psychic gift and how she handles her abilities. A friend of Abby asks her as a favor to read the Tarot cards at a Greek wedding reception, and it is this favor that causes Abby a great deal of trouble. Because of her reading she becomes reluctantly involved with a Greek gangster who wants to use her psychic abilities for his own purpose.

Abby finds herself getting deeply involved with the Greek much against her will and Dutch, her FBI boyfriend, their friend Milo, a cop, her sister Cat, her handy man Dave, and her doggy, Eggy all become involved with her in this great cozy.

One of the pluses of this book is the insight it gives the reader into Abby's world of the paranormal, the use of her crew (the spirit guides on the other side) and the responsibility she feel about their readings. Abby has scruples, integrity and professional eithic about her gift.

Ms. Laurie has created a delightful character and written a fun and suspensful book. I look forward to reading the other books in this great series.
