Carrots: A Shelby Nichols Adventure (Shelby Nichols #1)

Shelby Nichols is an average woman who is married to the only guy she ever fell for. Her life is organized and predictable, revolving around her husband and two children. All that changes the day she stops at the grocery store for some carrots. As the cashier rings up her purchases, a gunman is busy robbing the bank inside the store. When a customer grabs the robber's mask, he is shot and everyone runs for cover. Everyone except Shelby, who finds herself face to face with the killer. The next thing she knows, she's lying on the floor with a bullet wound to her head. Luckily, the bullet only grazes her scalp, and she doesn't suspect any lasting affects until later, when she suddenly 'hears' what people are thinking. With this uncanny ability, her life takes on a whole new dimension. Her kids think she's bossy and too old to understand them, but that's nothing compared to her husband. He says he loves her, but what is it about the redhead at work that he doesn't want her to know? As if that isn't enough, the gunman knows she can identify him, and he's out to silence her forever. In her fight to stay alive, she is saved from certain death by a handsome hit-man with ties to organized crime. This pulls Shelby even deeper into danger, where knowing someone's thoughts can not only hurt her feelings, but get her killed.

My Review: Carrots


I am enjoying this series of books. This is book 1 Shelby Nichols adventure but actually the second of the series I have read. I read book #5 Trapped by Revenge first. So I knew who was going to survive and some other secrets too.

I like the mixture of characters. Of good guys and likable bad guys even. I read it without stopping till the end. It had danger, action, drama, humor. Some violence.

Shelby is a mother of two and a housewife. On her way home she stops at grocery store and gets shot in the head during a robbery. She all of a sudden can read minds. She gets in a mess with the robber trying to kill her, reading her husbands mind and a mob boss finds out about her new talent.

Shelby is keeping secrets from everybody. Trying to help police, being forced to work for Uncle Joey, Trying to keep her family safe, even from other woman. Trying to get out of working for the mob without getting killed in the process.

I have already bought the second Shelby Nichols Adventure.
