With summer over Shelby is looking forward to having some time to herself while the kids are back in school. A phone call from Uncle Joey ruins her plans, but she manages to take it in stride. After lunch with her friend, she promises to meet with the private investigator who was spying on Uncle Joey, but this simple task turns into a disaster. Not only does she find the P.I. dead, but a slip of paper with her name on it under his lifeless hand implicates her for his murder. Desperate to prove her innocence and find the person who killed him, Shelby begins a frantic search. She enlists the aid of the local mob boss, Uncle Joey, his hit-man, Ramos, and her police detective friend, Dimples, but soon finds that nothing can save her from becoming entangled in a sinister plot. With her life on the line and no way out, she finds herself trapped by revenge, and realizes it will take all her skills to escape. Now she must choose where her loyalties lie, and hope she doesn’t trade something bad, for something even worse.


Another Winner! Colleen Helme has done it again. How she can top this book is beyond me but then again I have thought the same thing after each of her other books. Since the book came out yesterday and I finished it Ina day, I guess I’ll have to wait for the continuing adventures of Shelby and crew.

Trapped By Revenge was a good, quick cozy mystery to curl up with.

‘Trapped By Revenge is the best yet of Shelby Nichols’ Adventures. Shelby Nichols is doing one last job for “Uncle Joey,” but when she finds a murdered man with a note in his hands with her name on it, things become complicated. It’s a surprisingly light read with a number of interesting twists and connections.

Trapped By Revenge was a really good story and I never would have guessed who-done-it. Well written and very fascinating.

As with the others in the series Trapped by Revenge is a fast-paced, easy read. You don’t have to read the others first, but why deprive yourself of the fun?

Trapped by Revenge is a fun detective series. Once I got into it I did not want to put the book down until I had finished it.
