Light and fun murder mystery novella!

With Marked for Murder, the 12th novel in the Shelby Nichols series, being released on May 23 author Colleen Helme released this little jewel to whet our appetites. (Note that Audible is still not confirming the release or the date, but the author says she expects it to be available.) For those not familiar with the Shelby Nichols cozy mystery series it is a lot like Jana DeLeon's Miss Fortune series. There is also a mild paranormal element (mind reading). The novels do not need to be read in order, but reading Carrots first is necessary. Wendy Tremont King narrates all novels in the series superbly.

Great, engrossing story

This novella is a great story, engrossing with plenty of action. If you are thinking about reading the Shelby Nichols series, listen to this quick, faced paced story. A stay at home mom that gets psychic abilities from an accident, now consults for the police and oh, a mob boss and a hit man? That is a sticky situation in itself. What did Shelby get into now? Will she make it out ok? Really good story and a good series. Exciting ending. Give it a listen.

A good book any time of the day or night

I really enjoyed this book! I just love the characters and the by play between them. The way Shelby has to work between the good and the bad to keep every body happy is fun to listen to or read. I also found the introduction of the dog amusing and can't wait to see how that will develop in the next book.
Shelby is called in when the police arrest a man for murder and 'Dimples' believes they have the wrong man. Of course the case get complicated when she turns to Uncle Joey's right hand man for help. You would think being able to read minds would make life simple but not for Shelby especially in some of the situation she finds herself in.
The narrator was very good and easy to listen to adding to the fun of the book. I would recommend this book.

Great Short Story!

Colleen gave us a little of every body, always need more of Ramos! But I hope Shelby and Ramos never get together. Wendy is the Best Narrator, love when she is in character with Shelby Nichols! Can't wait to read Marked for Murder, saving that for my vacation!

Another awesome book

Shelby is always on an adventure. Her mind reading abilities get her into some hot water. Luckily she always has people to help her out. I enjoy all the characters in the book. Even Uncle Joey is like able. Shelby being the nice person she is wants to get an innocent person free from jail. Which ends up her getting kidnapped and shot at. But like her adventures it has a happy ending. I would definitely recommend this series.

Loved the book distracted by the narrator

Fabulous! Colleen Helme has done it again. She has taken Shelby Nichols, her intrepid housewife, who can hear people's thoughts since she was shot in the head during a robbery, and twisted a series of intrigue around her life. Shelby works as a consultant for the police department and is blackmailed into assisting a mob boss and his enforcer, who just happens to continually have to rescue Shelby from getting killed. The story kept my attention and I wanted it to speed up to save Shelby and her client who is in jail charged with murder but also slow down and last a while longer.. What was distracting was that the narration made Shelby sound a little like a spoiled, slightly dumb unthinking ditz, The usually masculine men, Ramos and Dimples were made to sound like teenagers acting like adults. I still loved the book, recommend it to all, and will probably listen to it again sometime.

Loved it!

I’m not usually a fan of novellas but this one was very good. Full of Shelby’s usual antics, a murder to solve and trouble to get out of! Throughly enjoyed this little story! It’s a winner!
