Shelby Nichols isn’t your average soccer-mom turned private investigator. She’s more on the quirky side with a little wild thrown in. That’s because a near-fatal gunshot wound to the head left her with the ability to read minds. This lands her in all kinds of trouble, and this time is no exception. Helping a reporter, Billie Jo, get the low-down on a case is just the tip of the iceberg. When her best friend’s niece goes missing, Shelby is pulled into a conspiracy that involves the police and the leader of a violent drug ring. Add to that a stranger in town with ties to the mob-boss she works for, along with a known assassin out to kill him, and Shelby is crossing danger at every turn. Will she find the answers in time? Or will this be her last adventure?
Oh my, I am all caught up on this series and it’s so sad. I need more!
What I thought of this book.
Crossing Danger has her working a bit more as a consultant than with Uncle Joey which I liked. I am not saying that she didn’t help but it just didn’t take up most of the story. Most of this story dealt with her friends missing niece and the mess she had gotten into and the fall out of it. Besides working with the police on that cause Dimples aka Detective Harris, asked for her help on a cold case. She is also still helping Billy Jo with a case.
In true Shelby style, it seems that no matter what she does she always ends up in some sort of trouble. I also find this one a bit harder to talk about without giving away parts of the plot but I do love how the author seems to take this case and that case and sort of tie them all together at the end, and your like …oh.
I love all the characters as always. There was a new one who we might be seeing more of and that is Agent Blake. He has dealings with Uncle Joey, but he is an FBI agent and he is impressed with Shelby’s premonition and interrogation techniques. It’s a lot easier to interrogate when you can read their mind! So I am curious to see where this will take Shelby in the future!
Besides Shelby my two other favorite characters were Billy Jo and Dimples, they just make such a cute couple. I really think Dimples has his hands full with Billy Jo!
If you haven’t checked out this series yet I would highly recommend you try them as each book is great and a lot of fun. If your an audio person I would also recommend listening to them as they are so laugh out loud funny at times. 🙂
Wendy Tremont King does an excellent job as always. She is now the voice of Shelby!
