Publisher's summary

Playing a high-stakes poker game should be easy for a mind-reader. But living to talk about it is another matter.

Delivering a letter for a mob boss shouldn’t be dangerous.

But nothing ever goes as planned for Shelby Nichols.

Pulled into the clutches of a rival crime organization, Shelby uncovers information that leads her on a path toward death. The more she discovers, the worse it gets.

Too late, she realizes that some secrets are meant to be kept...and others...can get her killed.

USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling author Colleen Helme offers a clever mix of mystery, laugh-out-loud humor, and pause-resisting adventure in the highly acclaimed Shelby Nichols Adventure Series.

Doctor's Notes Review

Any additional comments?

Once again we see Shelby back in her element and doing what she does best and I loved every minute of it. The narrator for this one makes Shelby come to life and I love what she does with her. She really gets all her quirks and makes her just what I had envisioned for her. This time around we catch Shelby relaxing on vacation and as she is finishing it up Uncle Joey asks for a favor. I think we all know by now that his favors are never anything little and soon Shelby finds herself in the middle of another mystery like always. I think I loved this book more than the previous books because we really got to see Shelby and Ramos work together. These two set off an adventure that can only be done as they know how.



I think as these books go on we see Shelby become a stronger character and she really learns how to make her gift work for her. I love seeing how creative she gets with hiding her abilities and making people question what she can do. This time around Ramos convinces Shelby to help him take down the guy who he thinks killed his brother but he soon learns more than he expected to know about that situation. I loved that this time around we got to learn who Ramos was and where he came from. This book really lets us see into his world and get to know him has a character and figure out what makes him tick. I loved seeing him tell Shelby more about what makes him Ramos in a nutshell. I know that nothing will come out of it but Shelby and Ramos really have some amazing chemistry and I would have loved to see them together as a couple but Shelby loves her hubby too much and Ramos respects that. I think that is another reason why I love Ramos for who he is. Shelby soon has to play a game of poker with the guy that Ramos is trying to take down and of course that is where the fun starts. It was so funny listening to Shelby try to figure out how to play the game and to outsmart her opponent at the same time.

Overall this was another great installment in this series and one that really let us learn more about Ramos as a person. You got to see where he came from and what he gave up to become who he is now. The narrator did a good job with his voice and making him sound completely different from the other characters. She does a great job of making all the characters have their own personalities and making them all unique and with their own quirks. I have fallen for these characters and can’t wait to see where the author will take them next. I would highly recommend this one to others especially those that love a good mystery read.
