Publisher's Summary

In New York Times best-selling author Victoria Laurie's newest Psychic Eye mystery, Abby Cooper has one rule to follow: Don't panic!

Professional psychic and FBI consultant Abby Cooper has used her inner visions to get her out of many a scrape - and solve many a crime - but she's about to face a murder scene that will put all her powers to the test. Abby's husband, Dutch, has a side business providing security and building panic rooms for wealthy clients. One morning, one of Dutch's partners, Dave, goes missing on his way to meet a client. Abby's intuition tells her something terrible has happened to him. Then two of Dutch's clients are found brutally murdered...inside their brand-new panic room, and most of the evidence points to Dave as the killer. With the authorities racing to find and arrest him, Abby's got to use all her intuitive prowess to get to Dave first, discover the real killer, and save her husband's business. This is one case where Abby is positive there's far more to this mystery than meets her inner eye....

    "Great New Tale!"

    STORY: I totally enjoy all of Victoria Laurie's Psychic Eye stories EXCEPT for one thing. They have quirky humor, good suspense and a nice side of romance. Now for the one thing that drives me bonkers. Several times she'll leave an obvious clue lying around in the story that all the characters overlook. Then when you're ready to start yealling at them to do something, call someone, or check out somebody you find out at the big "reveal" that they finally got it but it wasn't mentioned. All I can say is Aargh! Seriously, very enjoyable entertaining and educating reads.
    NARRATION: Elizabeth Michael's has a naturally low voice (keep this in mind). She has excellent rhythm and emotions so the story flows well. Although all of her female voices are either bass or altos, they're varied and enjoyable. She does some great guy voices EXCEPT poor Bryce. He was OK when he was first introduced but a couple of novels later she started to change him and he's been everything from a soprano to a squeaky "country" hick through the rest of the stories. The only time he sounds like a guy is when he's yelling. This wouldn't matter except he's Candace's husband & Dutch's boss so he has to talk sometimes. In this one, his voice is higher than anyone else's (including all the females) and several times it cracked. She does such a good job on Dutch, Dave, and the rest of the guys, I don't know why she can't give poor Bryce a believable voice. :>{

    "Not like the others-couldn't finish!"
    What was most disappointing about Victoria Laurie’s story?

    I have enjoyed the previous books in the series, but she's obviously run out of plots and this one is awful. It took an hour and a half to even get to the plot of the story, the beginning was just filler. However even then it was just so boring and I found myself constantly rolling my eyes. I only got through the first few chapters and then couldn't take it anymore and didn't finish the book. I'm returning it. I just wanted to warn her fans that this is not on par with the other books.

    Story
    "Could have been shorter and much better"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, it's the worst of the entire series


    Would you be willing to try another book from Victoria Laurie? Why or why not?

    Absolutely! I own most of her books, I truly enjoy her writing, just not this one.


    What didn’t you like about Elizabeth Michaels’s performance?

    She reads well, great pronunciation, strong clear voice, good cadence and that's where the good ends. I have listened to the entire series and Ms. Michaels reading has been and is sub-par. The more characters there are, the worse it is. She needs to study with a good voice acting coach. I can only distinguish two separate characters the rest sound the same. And poor Brice, what she has done to this prominent FBI leader's voice is criminal. She makes him sound like a boy going through puberty, just awful! Her Southern/South West accents are completely atrocious! I'm a New Yorker but I've lived most of my adult life in the Southeastern part of the US, plus 3 years in Southern California, many Texan and Tex-Mex accents there as well. I'm not an accent scholar but she insults Texans with her poor attempts.


    Could you see A Panicked Premonition being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I think the entire series would make for entertaining viewing. I'm not not a casting director, I have no idea.


    Any additional comments?

    The first Victoria Lauri book I ever skipped chapters. I love this series because of Abby and Candance aka Sundance and Cassidy. There wasn't much of the the zany messes they usually get into. No "Lucy, you have some splainin' to do". There was only one time that I thought "Dutch is going to freak out". Plus Abby didn't do what Abby is best at doing, using her "crew". Not to mention how unfazed everyone was with her language. In previous stories, they cost her a quarter a word. I'm a US Navy Veteran, my language can be a bit colorful at times, so it's not that at all, it just wasn't an Abby-Dutch-Candance-Brice story, none of the characters were who they have been in previous books. As long as Ms. Lauri writes them, I'll listen. As far as Ms. Michaels, she needs to see a vocal acting coach. Don't try any more southern accents and do something about Brice's voice.

    "Always a great read in this series!"

    This was a good mystery and kept you guessing til the end. A little slow in the middle but well worth the coins or tokens. This really is a great series to listen too!

    "Was a great suspenseful story"

    The book was a great continuation on the series . The changes in character were right for the changes in their life stories . The book kept you guessing and wondering who were the villains behind the main story .
    I don’t get any of the superficial criticism . Which were way off based .if you’ve read and like the others , you’ll love this one

    "Good story- Two little things"

    Great storyline! Victoria Laurie never fails to deliver a good plot with plenty of twists. My only issue was that Abby seems to forget she is a psychic in this story. Other characters have to remind her to use her intuition throughout the investigation. It actually got a bit annoying. Also, there was a key clue that no one (in the story) seemed to pick up on until WAY into the story. Had me banging my head on the table b/c it was something pretty obvious in my opinion. (Dave+truck+timeline) I may be nitpicking, but only b/c I love this series. Still liked the book overall & would recommend!

    Candace and Abby are the best team in print when it comes to a psychic bad azz and the best private investigator in the world. This time they have to save Dave and the men they love have a business that needs their special abilities to save their reputations and keep the customers coming. Gotta love em and their fitness routine, too. More, More please!

    "Not for cozy fans anymore..."
    What disappointed you about A Panicked Premonition?

    Victoria Laurie did not ever, or very rarely, put foul language in her books. She was one of my favorite cozy mystery fans. Not any more. A Panicked Premonition was full of foul language. I couldn't get but half way through the book.


    What could Victoria Laurie have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Leave the "f" language out. Maybe I could have stood the "s" language quite a bit less too.


    Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Michaels – was your favorite?

    I liked them all.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.
