Psychic Abby Cooper invests in a fixer-upper with her sister, Cat, and handyman Dave. Abby takes a month off from doing psychic readings to fix up her own house and the fixer-upper. Those plans are changed when her boyfriend, FBI agent Dutch Rivers, is shot and she has to nurse him back to health. Abby does work on the fixer-upper whenever she can but work stops when she and Dutch spot the ghost of a beautiful blonde which disappears before their eyes. Abby has already had visions about the house and now her psychic ability is telling her that the blonde woman had been murdered. When Abby and Dave's houses are both broken into and Abby is attacked, she realizes someone or something is trying to keep her away from the house. But when Abby finds a box hidden in the house and has another psychic vision about the woman, she knows she has to find the killer, even though Dutch is vehemently opposed to her getting involved. When Abby's office is broken into by someone searching for the box and another person is murdered, she is more determined than ever to find the killer. "A Vision of Murder" is a well written, well done mystery. The psychic elements are very believable. Author Victoria Laurie does a great job describing how the psychic mind works, saying Abby's visions are a sensation like a telephone ringing in another room, only they are in Abby's head. Even though Abby is on vacation, she still has a chance to help people with her psychic ability which makes for some of the most interesting parts of the book. Abby's ability to tell if someone is dead merely by looking at their photo is also interesting. Abby is a very real heroine with some real problems, most noticeably the relationship with her uncaring parents. It's her relationship with other people that help make her such a great characters, especially her long-distance friendship with Medium Theresa; her friendship with handyman Dave, who will do literally anything to help her; and her friendship with her sister Cat. Her relationship with Dutch is one of best written parts of the book, the arguments they have are very realistic. And Abby's attempts to take their relationship to another level are some of the funniest parts of the book. There are other humorous moments, like the protective gear Dave wears when going into the haunted house. Another funny scene involves Cat, a bulldozer, and a police car. The mystery itself is nicely plotted, although there's never much doubt about who the murderer is. Finally, while Victoria Laurie introduces a new character, M.J. Holliday, who now has a series of her own, she does it so that M.J. fits right into the storyline rather than as a promo for the new series. "A Vision of Murder" is a great mystery. Highly recommended.

I am in love with this series. A Vision of Murder has been my favorite one so far! I really enjoy watching how Abby and Dutch's relationship is growing! This book is full of suspense and kept me guessing until the very end. I have gotten my friends into this series and we all love it. A great read!!

This author has a real knack for keeping the suprise in her plot. Again, 30 pages from the end, I had no idea how she was going to resolve this mystery. The characters are devloping smoothly and keeping themselves interesting. Erratic clues keep you from putting the puzzle pieces together. Very well done.

Third in the series about Abby Cooper, professional psychic. Like book 2, this one is a page turner, but Abby's tendency to take dangerous chances did get a little irritating.

Sometimes it¿s fun to read an old comfort read, by an author you really like. This book fell into that category. I will say, this is not the one to start the series with, as I felt that a lot was left unexplained. As usual, I really liked Abby¿s character in this one, although, she did have her flighty-dip moments. (Let¿s go to the haunted house by ourselves, even though we know there is a murderer out there). Dutch¿s character really bothered me this time. I felt he was overprotective to the point to being possessive. If it were my car keys he took, I think I would have left too, only I wouldn¿t have come back. It was nice to see a bit more of Cat and Dave this book, and I am always entertained by Milo. I¿m glad I took a break to read this one. Not only was it what I needed, it fit quite nicely into a few of my reading challenges. Back to my `must read list¿ for a while. Can¿t wait until I get another break to read the next one.

D-U-M-B. Annoying characters, a well-worn plot, and writing so kitschy it made me itch.

Loved the book and will keep reading anything I can get by this author. A point to make for the copy editor: The translation of swallow's eggs (diamonds) as Schwalbe Eier is wrong. Correctly, the word is Schwalbeneier. Would it have killed you to check with the local high school German teacher? (And yes, I did teach German.)

A thoroughly enjoyable series of books. Satisfying mystery and the usual mishaps between her and Dutch finally lead somewhere (okay, kinda PG13 but still ...). Off topic and meant as a compliment -- After reading several books in series (and planning on reading more) and having something really nagging at the back of my mind, it finally dawned on me who the character reminded me of (in a totally non-derivative and good way and just a tiny bit) -- a grownup Trixie Belden from one of my favorite YA series (really old school like before internet and cell phones)! (Hmmm...maybe Dutch a little of the tough-guy, goody-two-shoeish Jim Wheeler?) By remind, I guess something of the personality and the heroine, while solving the mysteries, not a superhero and detached-logical no involvements with friends or family type of girl and not looking for mysteries so much as falling into in the course of an apparently full life. Maybe it's just these earlier book covers!
