Book 9 in the Shelby Nichols Adventure Series
Just back from Paris, Shelby barely has time to get over her jet lag before she is right back in the thick of things. Uncle Joey, the local mob boss, needs her help to find out what his son is hiding from him. Detective Harris, AKA Dimples, has an unsolved homicide on his hands, along with a missing engagement ring. Shelby's husband, Chris, just got promoted to partner in his law firm, and she has yet to see his new office or meet his new secretary. Add to that the opportunity to purchase a beautiful home, and Shelby is racing from one thing to the next while trying to keep them all straight.
When a courier in Uncle Joey’s organization turns up dead, it’s up to Shelby and her mind-reading powers to find out who killed him and why. The house Shelby wants to buy has a few problems that go beyond the building code, and the murder she’s helping Dimples solve has ties to Chris’ law firm. Even using all of her skills, Shelby finds one hidden deception after another. And if she’s not careful, it might be the one she least expects that will kill her.
What I thought of this book.
I was so in need of a Shelby fix! I went through this one too fast as that is just what happens when you get ahold of this series and now I got to wait again. *cries*
Shelby and her family have just gotten back from Paris and trying to get their lives back to normal. The kids have extra homework, her husband is now a partner in his law firm, and she is just hoping for a break. Not going to happen though as the house that Shelby is wanting to move into seems to have a mystery surrounding it, her detective friend needs her help on a case and of course Uncle Joey is going to need her ability to help him find out what is going on when Zack ends up dead.
Now she is finding skeletons, taking down someone who killed a law and trying to outwit the Russian mob. It’s just a day in the life of Shelby Nichols, mind reader extraordinaire!
This was another fun adventure from Colleen Helme and it was a lot of fun to listen too!
I love Shelby she has this knack for getting into trouble, though a lot of times it really isn’t her fault. If she couldn’t read minds she might not get into so many tough situations. I really love all the characters but I do have my favorites such as Ramos and Uncle Joey (I know I shouldn’t like that mob boss but heck even Shelby is starting to stick up for him…lol). It’s a great collection of characters who all work well together to bring forth a great story.
I highly recommend this series if you like cozy mysteries and love to laugh out loud! Go out and get the first one now! 🙂
Wendy does such a great job with this series that she has become one of my favorite narrators!
