Editorial Reviews


"One of the best and rarest gems of the indie book market." ~ Matthew LeDrew
'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."
~ Sharon Haddock, Deseret News

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

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 mystery and CHelme did not disappoint! Loved it! ~ Braine - Talk Supe: A Pop Fiction Book Blog

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. ~ Sizzle & Swoon Book Reviews

Original crime fiction
with a sublime twist of humour, it doesn't get any better than Carrots: A Shelby Nichols Adventure. ~ Book Viral Reviews

Sometimes, all we need is an enjoyable book that will make us laugh out loud or simply sigh with relief and feel all the good vibes. Carrots, with all its healthy nutrients, definitely is a must read! ~Claire, The Coffeeholic Bookworm~
