It’s been almost a year since a near-fatal gunshot wound left Shelby Nichols with the ability to read minds. In that time she’s faced one problem after another. She’s been shot at, framed for murder, and targeted by a serial killer, just to name a few. Now she’s trying to help her lawyer husband win a murder trial that will enable him to become a partner in his law firm. Sounds easy, right? But nothing ever goes as planned when it comes to Shelby Nichols.

When special agent, Blake Beauchaine, shows up to collect a debt from Shelby, things get even more complicated, and Shelby is soon on her way to Paris. A routine meeting with a rogue agent reveals a sinister plot, putting Shelby into the cross-hairs of a known terrorist. Even worse, she doesn’t speak French, so it seems her mind-reading abilities won’t help her this time.

Things go from bad to downright dangerous for Shelby, especially since her usual guardians, Uncle Joey, and his hit-man, Ramos, are back in the states. Lost and on her own in the streets of Paris, can Shelby escape the cold-blooded killer in time to stop his devious plans, or will this be the end of the line for Shelby Nichols?


Shelby in Paris! What could be better?! Not much, it turns out. Devious Minds was easily one of my favorite Shelby adventures. ~ Fantasy Is More Fun

In “Devious Minds,” Shelby has a problem: She can’t understand the thoughts of those who think in French, which makes things difficult as she goes to Paris to help stop an international incident. She is clever and bold even when she’s not sure how she ought to proceed, which makes her a likable, if incredibly lucky, heroine. The storyline moves right along, and it’s a nice twist for the characters to be in Paris at iconic sites. As a result, “Devious Minds” works as a readable, interesting novel, especially for Shelby Nichols fans. ~ Sharon Haddock, Deseret News

The Shelby Nichols Series is entertaining and always leaves me with a smile in the end. I can’t wait until the next installment of the series. ~ BookGatherer Reviews
