    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.

    Dr. Geoff says: "Fantastic story and flawless audio! Get it!"
    "Loved It!"

    What did you like best about this story?

    Even though mind reading isn't possible, the author and narrator made it believable, I also loved the way all the characters interacted, I felt like I really got to know them.


    Which character – as performed by Wendy Tremont King – was your favorite?

    Shelby for sure! :)


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Oh yes, I was laughing out loud quite a bit! Shelby gets in to some pretty interesting predicaments and I love the way she handles everything. She's such a great character!


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this book and would highly recommend it! I will be looking for more audible books in the series! :)

    Would you consider the audio edition of Lie or Die to be better than the print version?

    It's different, I really like both editions for different reasons! I really enjoyed listening to Lie or Die, cause you get a great feel for the characters, and Wendy Tremont King does a great job making each character stand out.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's a mystery, I liked the way they all had to figure out who was the real threat.


    Have you listened to any of Wendy Tremont King’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I've listened to all of the previous Shelby Nichols adventures. This one is great, it's definitely on par with the rest!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Since I had read the book previously I wanted to sit back and listen at my leisure, so that I could fully enjoy how the story unfolded.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great book, I highly recommend it!

    A trip to the mall gives Shelby the shock of her life when she finds an extra five million dollars in the bank account Uncle Joey set up for her. She thought he was out of her life for good, but with this fast money, she's not so sure. Now she must decide if she will tell her husband the truth that she can still read people's minds. Including his. How will he feel when he finds out she lied to him? When the Mexican Police tell her that Uncle Joey's been kidnapped and look to her for the ransom, she knows she's in big trouble.

    Dr. Geoff says: "Excellent, engaging performance, top notch story!"
    "I Love Shelby!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Fast Money: A Shelby Nichols Adventure to be better than the print version?

    I would say that they stand on their own very well, I find that the audio book really brings the story and characters to life, I love being able to listen while I work (on thoughtless tasks only, otherwise I slowly zone in to the book and out of everything else)!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fast Money: A Shelby Nichols Adventure?

    Probably when Shelby is talking to the Mexican police, she's so funny, she thinks it's a scam and totally blows them off without even a blink.


    What does Wendy Tremont King bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I LOVE the way she portrays Shelby, you really get a feeling for who she is by the inflection that Wendy gives her.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud a couple of times, and my husband who was just in the room with me while I was listening, kept chuckling at certain points, even though he wasn't listening to the whole book with me.


    Any additional comments?

    I love these books, I read all of them and can't wait to listen as they come out!
