What I thought of this book.
In Deep in Death Shelby gets involved in a the case of a missing woman. A young lady is getting married and she wants Shelby to try and find out what happened to her mother before she goes down the isle. Meanwhile, she goes about helping Dimples aka Detective Harris and Uncle Joey.
Shelby can’t seem to stay out of trouble and Chris thinks she must be a trouble magnet. While looking into what happened to the woman she gets herself in the line of site of a killer. If it wasn’t for her trusty mob boss bodyguard friend she would probably not make it out of most scraps she gets into.
Everyone by now knows how much I love Shelby and her husband Chris, and I think it’s great that we can have a series with a married couple that have stayed married as long as they have and it still be fun. As much as I love Ramos, I do think it gets a bit edgy with her and Ramos in this one and I hope the author doesn’t steer them into the wrong direction. I don’t mind a little flirtatious fun as long as it stays that way.
You all know I love Ramos and Uncle Joey but I am really starting to enjoy the new character Bobby Jo and I wish she would be in them a bit more. I like that Dimples has a girlfriend now, it’s cute.
Deep in Death steps up the thrill ride a little bit more as Shelby really gets herself in to a bit of trouble towards the end. It had me on the edge of my seat wondering what was going to happen. Each book in this series is just as fun and exciting as the next and I can’t wait to start listening to Crossing Danger!
