How many times can a person escape death? Shelby Nichols may be one lucky gal, but this time, her luck is about to run out. Working for a mob-boss has danger written all over it, but when an escaped convict with a lust for revenge goes after him, it’s up to Shelby and her mind-reading skills to keep Uncle Joey alive. Not only that, a federal agent from her past has an agenda with her name on it, and he won’t take no for an answer. What’s a mind-reading soccer mom to do? If you’re Shelby Nichols, you jump in with your mind wide open and hope for the best.

I love this series and it just gets better and better. However, I do not like Chris. I just find him annoying and sappy. So much so that I don't know if I will continue with the next book. No spoilers but this book offered a was the golden opportunity to move forward without him and explore other storylines (which Shelby obviously would enjoy). I enjoy all the other supporting characters and how they relationships are growing.

Concerned that technology is about to chase mythological creatures out into the open (how long can Sasquatch stay hidden from Google maps?), the League for Interspecies Cooperation is sending Jillian to Louisiana on a fact-finding mission. While the League hopes to hold on to secrecy for a little bit longer, they're preparing for the worst in terms of human reactions. They need a plan, so they look to Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where humans and supernatural residents have been living in harmony for generations.

Timid, socially awkward, and plagued by self-esteem issues, Fred has never been the adventurous sort. One fateful night - different from the night he died, which was more inconvenient than fateful - Fred reconnects with an old friend at his high school reunion. This rekindled relationship sets off a chain of events thrusting him right into the chaos of the parahuman world.

Vampire trafficking is a sinister business, and nobody knows that better than Keystone. After Raven discovers hidden clues in a cold case, the group sets a trap in hopes of catching an elusive criminal. But when the plan backfires, Raven's world is thrown into chaos, and Christian's loyalty is put to the ultimate test. Buried secrets come to light, and the only thing keeping Raven grounded is her insatiable thirst for vengeance. The stakes are high as they travel to a place where the landscapes are as treacherous as the immortals who live there. This time, there's no room for mistakes.

I really have enjoyed all four books in the series. I adore Christian and Raven but I like all the members of Keystone just as much. I hope we get more of Raven's dad in future books. I really hope Shep gets his son soon. He will have awesome babysitters! Looking forward to book five!

I love this series and getting some insight into Ramos the man was good. I did miss the chemistry between Ramos and Shelby; they are better together (without Chris!). The narrator did ok but I did not feel he was the correct choice. I had to take breaks from listening during the first part of the book. It did get easier during the second part but maybe I just became familiar with his voice. Since Ramos is a super sexy hitman, I think it would have been better to fit the narrator voice to that image.

I will continue to buy and listen as long as the series continues. I really enjoy the adventures and characters.

Shelby Nichols isn't your average soccer mom turned private investigator. She's more on the quirky side with a little wild thrown in. That's because a near-fatal gunshot wound to the head left her with the ability to read minds. This lands her in all kinds of trouble, and this time is no exception. Helping a reporter, Billie Jo, get the lowdown on a case is just the tip of the iceberg. When her best friend's niece goes missing, Shelby is pulled into a conspiracy that involves the police and the leader of a violent drug ring.

This is such a fun series. Shelby is very likable and her interactions with Ramos are perfect. I even enjoy her police friends and kids. Her relationship with Uncle Joey is sweet, even if he is a mob boss. Still not a fan of Chris. He is too whimpy, she needs Ramos!

I really enjoy this series. This one, however, was not as good as the previous. I much prefer the books that focus on Shelby's adventures with Ramos. They have great chemistry. I did enjoy the golf and poker scenes; very funny! I appreciate Shelby is married to Chris but for some reason, I find him annoying.

Bellissimo Resort and Casino Super Spy Davis Way knows three things: Cooking isn’t a prerequisite for a happy marriage, don’t trust men who look like David Hasselhoff, and money doesn’t grow on Christmas trees. None of which help when a storm hits the Gulf a week before the most anticipated event in Bellissimo history: the Strike It Rich Sweepstakes. Securing the guests, staff, and property might take a stray bullet. Or two.

Christina McMullen, psychologist extraordinaire, has problems - not least of which are her needy clients, a schizophrenic septic system, and her sizzling-then-fizzling romance with Lieutenant Jack Rivera. But Chrissy has yet another problem she'd like to ignore: finding her secretary's missing boyfriend. Okay, so she secretly hopes the vertically challenged computer geek has harmlessly departed from Elaine's life - after all, there's no evidence to suggest foul play. But when her razor-sharp instincts, honed by years as a cocktail waitress, start screaming, she'll have to use her skills.
