Abby & Dutch are to be married in the near future, she is avoiding; her sister Cat, who is making all the wedding arrangements, Dave, who is working on the new house, and the gun Dutch bought her as a wedding present so that she can protect herself.

Abby is visited by a woman attorney in disguise who wants Abbey to look into the murder of a missing woman, perpetrated by her client. But due to client confidentiality privilege, the woman in disguise can not give Abby any names, dates or information to go on. Abby's partner Candace is a P.I. and all for picking up the investigation.

As they delve into the investigation Abby finds that the murdered woman's; best friend has something big to hide, her mother is a nasty piece of work, the husband has a past of violence, and there is an unknown lover involved.

**************************************SPOILER**************************************

What dropped the books rating for me was the scene when Abby is kidnapped and is brought to a warehouse where her sister, Cat, is waiting to discuss the wedding plans.

That was so Freking stupid and unnecessary.

************************************************************************************

Otherwise this was a decent, mindless, entertaining read. ( )

There aren't many cozy mysteries capable of actually making my heart pound but this one did.

First let me say that while I consider this whole series to fall into the 'cozy' category, the nature of the crimes in some of them (like Lethal Outlook) skirt the definition a bit. The crimes in this book are intense and unpleasant - not graphic, but undeniably awful. This is not a poisoning at the garden club. I didn't have a clue who the murderer was and never even considered the culprit a suspect. The ending left me feeling as though I'd just run for my life and I'm awfully glad I didn't finish this book right before bed - I'd have never fallen asleep.

I love the characters in this book and the whole series - all are so vivid and well written. Each character is unique and I find them all likeable. I had the great pleasure of speaking with Ms. Laurie on several occasions several years ago, and while I certainly can lay NO claim on knowing her, I hear her personality shine through Abby. The dialogue, the wit, the humour, the wisecracks. It makes reading these stories a pleasure and this was no exception. I particularly loved the scene with Abby in the police interrogation room. If you've ever wanted to be able to push back at someone being a bully and *really* put them in their place, this scene is one to make you grin.

I have to admit I didn't love the last book, Vision Impossible, and was just a tiny bit worried that the series was going in a direction I couldn't jump on board with, but this book put paid on all those concerns. I found this book to be a true page turner that at times took my breath away. Can't wait for the next one! :) ( )

I had stepped away from this series for awhile but am glad I was ready to start again. I realized I missed Abby, Dutch and the crew. This whole series is very well done and quite entertaining. It's a mystery series with psychic lead, a love story and a bunch of zany characters.

What I liked: This was a quick, easy, entertaining read. It's for those moments when you don't want to think too hard and just relax while reading a good story. Having read Ms Laurie's series from the beginning, I was already familiar with Abby's world and the other characters. The storyline is well thought out, the characters formed but still growing. I find it enjoyable that even Abby does not know exactly what her "crew" means all the time. She has to figure it out along with the reader.


What I didn't like: Sometimes the writing gets a little cutesy. I knew that a head of time and just rolled with it. Like I said, you have to be in the correct mood to read a book in this series.


While you could possibly read this as a stand alone novel, all the background and world building is in the previous novels. Depending on what type of book you're in the mood for, this is a good solid series for light reading. (Caveat: Some of the books are more intricate than others) ( )

Audio Rating: 4.00 (not part of the overall rating)

First Thought when Finished: Lethal Outlook was another wonderful entry in the Psychic Eye Mystery Series! I flat-out had fun and my parents (who borrowed it) really enjoyed it too.

Story Thoughts: I am a huge fan of the Psychic Eye Mysteries. I really like Abby, Dutch, and her surrounding friends/family. She is a brilliant Psychic and a pretty good little P.I. She also has a knack at landing herself in the middle of cases and doing some good old fashioned detecting. In Lethal Outlook, it is another one of those cases that is bumpy and not always clear on what/who is to blame. Abby and Candice really do some great "following the clues/nudges" work to figure it all out. The side story of Dutch and Abby's wedding planning was fantastic and the end was just about perfect! Go Cat!

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Elizabeth Michaels / Length: 10 hrs and 48 mins

I love Elizabeth Michaels narration of this series. She is Abby and Dutch to me. I don't think anyone else could pull it off as well as she does. I recommend this series highly on audio.

Final Thoughts: Lethal Outlook was a great mix of mystery, friendship, and love. ( )
