Once I start listening to one of the books in this series, I have to finish it. That includes listening at work, staying up late at night, driving around extra distances or parking in the driveway. I started with Abby Cooper Psychic Eye and have been reading in the series order, I feel each of these books will easily stand alone, but reading in order is helpful. The author does do an excellent job of filling in the information about past books happenings, but NOT in a repetitive way that's like a cut and paste of whole sections from previous books. Also, love the fact that young adults could read these, because violent scenes are not not gruesome and there aren't any graphic sex-capades. Don't get me wrong, I love a good Harlequin romance as well as the next girl might, it's just refreshing to read a funny, entertaining, clean book with a plot that isn't dependent on the main characters jumping in an out of sex scenes in between finding dead bodies.
I love the narrator and find her completely capable of the various characters required and much more enjoyable than the narrator used for the Sue Grafton Series. I am now up to book 7 and can't wait to hear her other series starting with the first book: What's a Ghoul to Do?
I highly recommend all of Victoria Laurie's books, I'm glad I didn't listen to the bad reviews!

Abby Cooper is a psychic with a knack for accidently stumbling into criminal investigations with the local police department. This is the second book in the series and second one I've read.
It's been a while since I read the first book and I decided to give this one try. Now I remember why I didn't immediately reach for the second one in the series after finishing the first. Here it is: I don't like Abby Cooper. If I had known her in real life, I would have run like a deer from her. She's selfish, whiny and not terribly bright. For someone who refers to herself as an "intuitive" she uses astonishingly bad judgment in her own affairs. It's too bad too, because the plots are interesting and the author does a good job of ratcheting up the suspense. But, as Abby runs headlong into danger without looking both ways, I find myself wishing that someone would kill her. At a minimum, I amazed that no one has.
While the narrator does an adequate job, her voice doesn't match the young, immature Abby Cooper. In any case, the is the last book in the series I will read.
