A trip to the mall gives Shelby the shock of her life when she finds an extra five million dollars in the bank account Uncle Joey set up for her. She thought he was out of her life for good, but with this fast money, she’s not so sure. Now she must decide if she will tell her husband the truth that she can still read people’s minds. Including his. How will he feel when he finds out she lied to him?

When the Mexican Police tell her that Uncle Joey’s been kidnapped and look to her for the ransom, she knows she’s in big trouble. As if that isn’t enough the police detective she worked with needs her help to solve a case, and she unwittingly becomes a witness to murder. In her fight to stay alive, she finds that everyone wants a piece of the money, and just how far they will go to get it, can be a matter of life and death. She just hopes it’s not hers.

Mind Reader Fan. “This is one of the funniest mystery series I have read. It is in the era of Evanovich. I love the Mind Reader plot. It makes you interested in what’s going to happen next. None of that “make you think” stuff. Just plain entertainment. That’s the best part of it.”

Fun, Fast, Fantastic read – An amusing and entertaining read. I hope there are many more to come!

Wow! The subject says it all! It was so captivating I found myself reading until 3 am.

‘Fast Money’ a nice second Shelby Nichols’ book In Fast Money, Nichols stands up for herself just enough to impress the mobster and some of his friends. The tone of the book stays light and breezy throughout. It makes for a good, pleasant read.

I love Shelby! Seriously, move over Sookie Stackhouse, there’s a new mind reader in town and she certainly is fun. Always in trouble and never a dull moment! ~ Nikki

In Fast Money, the humor and narrative devices are amusing and draw the reader in. The plot itself is well-developed and engaging with lots of plot twists and turns. Perfect for mystery fans who like a little paranormal and humor mixed in their novels.
