Editorial Reviews


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

I can't believe it's time to leave my new friends. I traveled beside Shelby Nichols who went from housewife to P.I. Never dreamed I'd like a mob boss or have a tiny crush on his bodyguard. Saw Paris through the eyes of Parisians & Americans, wow, did we ever have some adventures. Never had flown on a private jet before only small & commercial planes. That was a bonus. Saw inter workings of a case being tried. I am really going to miss all of this & I can not wait until Colleen Holmes writes a 9th book in this series which I'm so hoping she does. Did I mention all the laughs? You should travel with Shelby & start with book 1.

This book really worked for me, to the point that I’ve just nipped over to Amazon to buy book 1 in the series. I haven’t read or listened to any books in this series before now and I feel that this book could have been slightly enhanced if I knew the backstory a little better.

Shelby Nichols is a the main character of this series and I adore her – she’s the perfect blend of ordinary, the kind of woman who packs tissues and extra socks for every journey ‘just in case’ and extraordinary, she has connections to the mob and is flown out to Paris to help Special Agent Blake Beauchaine track down a terrorist. Obviously it’s better not to think too hard about how Shelby has ended up in this situation because it’s too fun to dwell on! She finds herself being kidnapped, attacked, generally shoved about a bit and then rescued by the smoking hot Ramos, the mob-hitman who suffers from a terrible case of unrequited love. The sexual tension between the two is pretty spicy, however, she does genuinely seem to love her husband so I’m not entirely sure where the author is going to go with this relationship and I’m a little frustrated on Shelby’s behalf.

I think it’s the things that make her ordinary in contrast to her abilities that really makes her work as a character, she’s likable, she loves her family and she gets scared when faced by terrorists and murderers rather than running in and saving the day on her own each time.

Shelby is at it again! Our irrepressible, mind-reading soccer mom is on the loose again, dodging trouble and trying to do what's right. It is hard to believe that this is the 8th book in Colleen Helme's series. It is hard for me to believe that it was 5 years ago when I first started reading Carrots, the first Shelby Nichols adventure outside a grocery store in Miami in the rain. Since then Shelby has traveled the world with me, and I have loved every episode, perhaps each new one more than the last. I loved this one too, and so will you.
Shelby is helping lawyer husband Chris solve a murder mystery, that is complex and cloudy. In the midst of that, she is called upon by Blake, from the last book, to whom she has promised a favor. And this seems easy enough, just a few days in Paris, and back home.
But this is Shelby, and NOTHING is ever easy and simple when Shelby is involved. Shelby finds trouble like a Swiffer finds dust!
Colleen did a great job describing Paris, and it really brought back some warm and nostalgic memories for me, both of the things I love about Paris and the things I do not like about Paris. There were good, recognizable and well-painted images of Paris that I really savored. I really liked the play between the characters too, particularly the British secret agent gal living in Paris that gives Shelby and Ramos a hand, and has such fine taste in automobiles and motorbikes!
So once again things have heated up between Ramos, Uncle Joey's faithful hit-man who has fallen for Shelby, and Shelby. Will Shelby maintain her honor and integrity? Will she remain faithful to Chris? Will she be able to still solve the murder case from Paris?

I love this author!!! I love Shelby Nichols!!!! Never loved a character more than Shelby!

I was so excited when I seen there was a new Shelby Nichols book coming out and even more excited when the author asked me if I wanted to review the audiobook!

It's Shelby in Paris, and if you have read this series then you know it's going to be so much fun and she is going to get herself in so much trouble! :)

In the last book Shelby had to make a deal with Blake an FBI agent to help Uncle Joey and that means that if Blake needed her help using her premonitions then she had to do it. She thought Uncle Joey took care of that and hadn't gave him much thought.

Then right in the middle of her husband Chris's big trial where he needed her help, Blake came and said he needed her and that they had to go to Paris. Chris wasn't happy about this as he didn't know about Blake, but when Blake helps him with his case so that he could take Shelby there wasn't much he could do.

Shelby tries getting out of it by telling Uncle Joey, but it didn't work. Though Uncle Joey did send Ramos to help her out and be her bodyguard so Shelby was relieved about that. There is only one problem with Shelby in Paris, she doesn't speak French! Good thing some of them think in English over there as well as speak it but it will make it harder to use her "premonitions".

Not long before Shelby and Blake get there they are attacked and Shelby ends up in Paris alone and scared. So when she finds out Ramos is there she is excited and he is on his way to get her, but before he can she is grabbed. Though she gets away with the help of Ramos, that is the start of all the trouble Shelby gets into.
