Lie or Die: A Shelby Nichols Adventure (Shelby Nichols #3) by Colleen Helme

Shelby has her hands full managing her new agency where she hopes to put her mind-reading skills to good use. Her first case to track down money stolen from a bank leads her into the lingerie business where nothing is as it appears. She also finds plenty to keep her busy with the police department and Detective Harris. But all that pales in comparison to what she must do to help Uncle Joey, the local mob boss. He knows her secret and is determined to make her use it for his own purposes. When her husband, Chris, receives threatening notes, and his former client, Hodges, turns up dead, it is up to Shelby to determine what is going on and who is behind it all. It seems the past has a way of catching up with her. Soon, Shelby must use all her wits to stay alive, and her only option? Lie or Die.

My Review: Lie or Die


I am still enjoying reading this series. Of the 4 so far I have read Trapped by revenge has more humor. This has a lot of the same elements that the other books have. Danger, mystery, humor, romance, good guys and bad guys (You have to like a few of the bad guys)a touch of paranormal, violence and a clean read.

Shelby in Carrots was shot in head and ever since she can read minds. It gets her into a lot of trouble when bad guys want to use her talents. Shelby was being forced to work with local mob boss Uncle Joey when he found out her secret. She works with local detective Harris or (dimples) when she can. Shelby tells him she gets premonitions when around people.

I like the characters. Shelby & Chris (her lawyer husband) are raising two teenagers. Chris has had a hard time with his wife knowing what is going on in his mind all the time. Now someone has beaten up one of the lawyers who was working on the case with Chris and threatening him.

Uncle Joey is local mob boss. He has come to care about Shelby. Someone is trying to take over some of his businesses. He likes the advantage Shelby gives him.

Ramos his Uncle Joey right handman and bodyguard. He has come to care about Shelby and keeps rescuing her. I like Ramos and even Joey.

Shelby is also working to find bank money that was stolen over a year ago. One of the thieves was murdered in court before he could give out the name of his partner.

I like these stories they are entertaining. Some parts seem over the top. You think it would be great to read minds but it really would cause a lot more problems. Shelby is trying to help when she can.

Sadly their is only one more book in this series that I have not read. Secrets That Kill.
