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. The next thing she knows, she’s lying on the floor with a bullet wound to her head. Luckily, the bullet only grazes her scalp, and she doesn’t suspect any lasting affects until later, when she suddenly ‘hears’ what people are thinking. With this uncanny ability, her life takes on a whole new dimension. Her kids think she’s bossy and too old to understand them, but that’s nothing compared to her husband. He says he loves her, but what is it about the redhead at work that he doesn’t want her to know? As if that isn’t enough, the gunman knows she can identify him, and he’s out to silence her forever. In her fight to stay alive, she is saved from certain death by a handsome hit-man with ties to organized crime. This pulls Shelby even deeper into danger, where knowing someone’s thoughts can not only hurt her feelings, but get her killed.



Chuckle-icious! – Hilarious. Great story line and character development.

Off the wall, wonderful! – Super fun book!

LOVED THIS BOOK – I found myself chuckling out loud and didn’t want to quit reading.

Yummy Carrots! – What a great romping time! I am looking forward to the next in the series because I fell in love with the main characters. The storyline was fun and creative.

‘Carrots’ a refreshing, different kind of sleuth story – The dialogue is well written and the story flows along nicely with a good number of twists and surprises. It’s a good story, a readable novel and the start of something fine.

I adored this book. Colleen Helme knows how to combine humor, mystery, and wit, and serve it up on silver platter!

Carrots: A Shelby Nichols Adventure is in the same shelf as Stephanie Plum and Betsy Taylor in terms of comedy and hilarity. I love chic-lit plied with with mystery and CHelme did not disappoint! Loved it!

What a riveting read! Who would have thought that a story about a suburban mom traveling to the store to get carrots would evolve into such a mystery? I would recommend this book to people who enjoy a nice light mystery with hilarious drama. I can’t wait to read more from this author.
