Great Mystery! In Lie or Die, the characters are charming, likable, and well-developed. This action-packed, well-developed story will not disappoint fans of the other Shelby Nichols adventures who like funny mysteries like Janet Evanovich. ~ Kira, Imagination Reviews

I really enjoyed Colleen's first Shelby Nichol's book, Carrots, and I liked Fast Money even better. I think that developing a believable, consistent character or set of characters is so important for a story. Unfortunately, we readers are extremely observant, and so often there are chinks and cracks that form in the foundation of a book. One false move by a character in an adventure, and the READER gets it. As in the story can fall apart in a heartbeat.
One of the things that I like best about Colleen's writing, and in fact her story telling is her amazing consistency. Collen's got a tough row to hoe, too, doesn't she? We're not just talking about what people say and DO in her books, we're talking about what they THINK!
With an amazing flair and style, and a consistency that would put a Swiss watch to shame, Collen has done it again! I think I liked Lie or Die even better than the previous two books, because Colleen has built her characters and foundations. She's not building a house any more, we're up to a village and town, and growing.
Shelby is so much like your neighbor. Your friend. Your kid's friend's mom. The person you go to a bake sale with, or run a Girl Scout Cookie sale with. She just has this one tiny little difference. Well, maybe not so tiny. She can read minds.Read more ›
Shelby is just a house wife who for some reason gets the ability to read peoples thoughts. She gets into so much trouble. Winds up working for MR. BIG... He is the Mob Boss and has a lot of control over the whole town.
Some scary incidents but somehow she always gets out of them. Like being at the wrong place at the wrong time.
Lots of laughs and suspence. Her husband is a Lawyer for a Big firm and he is always somehow involed with her troubles.
Great reads. I give all the books so far a 5.
I think she's dealing with her abilities well. During the second book I wasn't sure if I approved but now I realize she's learning and taking her skills in stride. I love it. Still completely unpredictable. I have no idea where she's going to be off to next. Not to mention the picture frame incident was hilarious.
Shelby quickly grew on me and I'm hoping this isn't the last I'll see of her. Ramos is one of my favorite characters as well so hopefully, I see him more often as well. Too fun. Comedy, drama, suspense, it's all in there. You won't be disappointed.
Shelby's character continues to struggle with her ability as well as its effects on those around her. Ms. Helme has crafted her as a particularly human character and you see her struggle with her relationships. Should she use her ability to spy on her children. Should she monitor her husband. Her friendship with her mob protectors also grows stronger.
While not for everyone. You do have to be able to suspend logic (but this is true of most of this genre) to enjoy the story. I see Shelby as a cross between Lucy Ricardo and Stephanie Bond with a little Betty White thrown in.
I will admit I binge read the series and will be watching for more.
