    Shelby Nichols is definitely and undeniably my book heroine of the month. This woman can kick ass despite the mishaps and misfortunes she runs into. And that includes being almost shot by a bullet in the head, thus giving her the uncanny ability to read minds. That itself is an added bonus and a real problem solver because it helped her gets things done, resolve issues faster and gets to the bottom of the issue faster than the speeding bullet (or not).When her friend’s niece has gone missing, she’s got another case in her hands that involves her Uncle Joey. Talk about multi-tasking career mom. The investigations delve deeper and deeper, bringing her closer to danger in more ways than one.It is my regret that I haven’t read the previous books that Miss Helme had written. It would help me better understand Shelby’s attraction to Ramos, her uncle Joey’s bodyguard, despite being happily married. It is my hope that this part of Shelby’s love life won’t go downhill. I really love this woman and all the other characters that spice up the investigation. I love how Colleen had written a book that has all the elements of a gripping suspense mystery: evolving plot, evocative setting, and engaging characters. My suggestion to my own self: Pick up all the previous books in this series and bask in the talent that is Colleen Helme.

    For those of fans who love the world of Shelby Nichols, we can always expect to read two storylines or more intermingled with the main plot. Well, "Crossing Danger" very cleverly intermixed several storylines and then neatly consolidates them all into one. By far, this plot was the most complicated of all of the books and Ms. Helme was masterful in her ability to get Shelby in and out of trouble.In this edition, Shelby and her new friend, reporter Billie Jo are at a studio taking an Aikido class. While Shelby is certainly nervous, she quickly begins to make strides and the instructor give her a few pointers on the first night that might help get her out of a sticky situation. We all know that Shelby is forever in a sticky situation so it is wise for her to request this assistance. Shelby receives a frantic call from her girlfriend, Holly. It seems that Chloe, her niece has gone missing and she would for Shelby to help out. Of course, without hesitation, Shelby goes to the police department to help out. It is soon discovered that Shelby was at the scene of a major crime that left three people dead including her seventeen year old boyfriend. Shelby is shocked when she arrives home only to find Chloe at her house. When she questions Chloe she realizes the reason she didn't want to go home or to the police. It seems that a cop was the shooter. Things just became complicated.To make matters worse, Billie Jo is beaten and shot in her own home and Detective Harris, aka Dimples is frantic with grief. He refuses to leave her side after surgery. Yet, it soon becomes clear that the assailants were after the second copy of the thumbdrive that went missing from her office. Shelby is angry and determined to find out who would do this to her friend. Before she has a chance to pursue this, Uncle Joey requests her presence at a breakfast meeting with his former college roommate and nemesis, Blake. It seems that Blake works for the government and has a great curiosity about Shelby.As Shelby races from place to place investigating the various cases she stumbles upon a dead file case of her high school crush. She goes back down to the creepy police department basement with Dimples and is bound and determined to help him out with the case. Oh I should also mention that Detective Bates is being the biggest pain in the butt and is trying to compromise Shelby's reputation. Although he rattles her self confidence for a time, she quickly puts him in his place.There is so much going on in this little gem of a book and series. Shelby's quirky ways and lovable demeanor always seems to keep her in trouble and has her husband, Chris, Ramos, Uncle Joey, Dimples and even her kids worrying about what crazy situation she will need rescuing from or even if she will survive the mayhem that always seems to follow in her wake. I just love this series! My biggest challenge is that I've spent the last few days speeding through one Shelby Nichols Adventures after another and now there are no more to read until the next book comes out which will probably be next year. Oh well, I now have another series that I'm addicted to and will have to wait what seems like forever to get my fix!

    http://www.njkinnysblog.com/2015/08/a...I am a big fan of Shelby. Having read her previous adventures, she is a character that feels close to my heart and a friend. Crossing Danger is yet another high voltage, thrilling adventure with Shelby where she goes cracking a mystery, facing danger and reading minds!As was the case with the previous covers of this series, this one again is an appealing and eye catching one. The blurb is interesting and instantly peeks our interest in the story.The audible version of the book has the voice of Wendy Tremont King as the narrator. She is a great narrator and able to engage the listener. She has a soothing and expressive voice which made my listening journey enjoyable. Her voice symbolizes Shelby to me.I was able to visualize all the scenarios and felt like I was physically present with Shelby as she tackled dangerous situations and followed clues.Colleen's writing style is simple and she is expressive; able to bring out the emotions of the characters out beautifully. Here too, she was able to make me relate myself to all the characters and become invested in their stories. I enjoyed meeting Shelby again and sincerely followed her along.The best thing about this series is that each book is better than the previous one. The stories with their mystery, emotional and adventurous quota keep getting better and better.In this book, Shelby is trying to find the missing niece of her friend and has to work with a cop who she knows doesn't like her but being Shelby, she is able to slowly make way for herself. It was fun watching the comfort that Shelby has achieved with her powers and the misadventures that always follow her.All in all, I enjoyed listening to Crossing Danger immensely and give it 5 super shiny stars. Go grab this book and read it or listen to it. Strongly recommended to everyone. I love Colleen's style and look forward to reading more from her in the future.I received the audible copy of the book from the author and I am very thankful to her. The above review is my honest and unbiased opinion and in no way influenced.

    Eagerly awaited and read in a few hours: the next installment of Shelby Nichols! And it was as always great, although it somehow also felt as an in-between. Shelby is juggling several cases for the police, Uncle Joey and her best friend Holly and somehow it all comes together in a big climax. Shelby is questioning whether she shoukd continue helping the police as she is being obstructed by a surly police officer. Uncle Joey is interested in the motives of an old acquaintance and asks Shelby for assistance. The disappearance of Holly's teenage niece also keeps Shelby busy. I loved this book and can see that Shelby will be going places as mysterious Blake is in the picture and might involve Shelby is intelligence. Exciting! In the meantime Shelby is still happily married with kids. And there lies my 'problem' with the series. It is getting more obvious that Shelby is attracted to Ramos and he reciprocates. I totally adore Ramos and love the UST between them. Actually I 'ship' this like crazy. I live for the Shelby/Ramos moments. My favorite book is the one where they are in Orlando together. BUT.... What about Chris, her totally lovable hubby?? She has kids with him!How is Colleen ever going to resolve this? I find myself secretly hoping something happens to Chris but then I slap myself. But it is also starting to get weird. Shelby is starting to fall for Ramos, people notice (Joey, his wife) and I love the motorcycle jacket thing. Owwwwwww. Well I guess poor Chris has got to go and then a time jump for Shelby to get over him... HINT HINT....

    Great!!! LOVE it If you are looking at this book you have probably read the earlier books; it is not essential, but the relationships develop through the series so there is an advantage to reading all of them. I would strongly suggest that you read Carrots at least before reading any of the others. Colleen Helme has created characters that move into your heart so the people matter as much as the plot. But the plots are great and are an important part of the story. In Crossing Danger, Shelby is drawn into a case of a friend's missing niece, before that case is resolved, another friend is shot leaving Shelby to take over that case, while talking to Dimples in the archives she discovers that her first boyfriend was murdered about a year ago and the file is about to go into the cold case files and if that isn't enough to handle, they learn that an assassin is after Uncle Joey. So much to do and having so little to work with drags her down, but family and friends stand by to keep her going. Oh yes, the newest "gift" is working, but it is still limited; message from the "beyond" are a lot harder to read than minds.

    Book 7, Another addition to a Great SeriesMurder, political corruption, drugs and the very psychic Shelby Nichols mix together in a delicious blend. Somehow Shelby is investigating 4 different cases and then they start to intertwine. I don't know how Colleen Helme manages to do this every time, but it is absolutely brilliant. The mind reading is such a great idea and poor Shelby's attempts to cover her abilities are pretty funny sometimes. All I can say is I LOVE THIS SERIES!

    Shelby is a delight to read...Working a case with Billie has far reaching impact on multiple problems going on. Dimples figures out her Secret and the cold case room gives her a clue to solve a cold case of an old flame. Always a pleasure to read can't wait till next book.

    This review appeared first at Fantasy is More Fun. It just keeps getting better and better! As I read each book in this series it becomes my new favorite. I absolutely love the character evolution - Shelby is really growing and yet in the most essential ways she hasn't changed. I loved Crossing Danger and I'm so excited for the next one to come out. The characters make this series - I love everything about Shelby. I love that she's a great mom and wife, and yet she's still discovering this new exciting part of herself. Her ability to read minds has changed her life and she's embracing it - she's getting better at investigating and dealing with the bad guys; she's discovering new abilities; she's even learning some self-defense. Oh, and she's continuing to be an expert at landing herself right in the middle of trouble! This time a family friend needs Shelby's help when a daughter goes missing - and, of course, Shelby is happy to help. Even when she gets stuck working with Bates, the one cop that has made no secret that he dislikes her. Of course, there's still plenty going on with Uncle Joey and Ramos and there's more overlap than usual there which was cool. As usual, the mystery is well put together and not too easy to solve, even with Shelby's abilities. And, as usual, Shelby scares everyone by putting herself in danger (including me)! I don't know what else to say without spilling specific details and that's the fun of reading it! Great mystery, fun charaters, humor, character development - what more do you want from a book, right? Oh how about a good narrator? Wendy Tremont King does a great job and I'd be bummed if she stopped narrating this series. Even though I've made fun of some of the accents, she's Shelby for me 100% and I think her male voices are good as well. And I just love the voice she does for Billie Jo (southern) :) I'm so ready for the next book - and the way Crossing Danger ends, the next book is sure to be exciting! I bet we end up in Paris :) **I received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.**

    Love Shelby's adventures. I devour these books, and have all my friends and neighbors addicted too. This was a bit different since Shelby's challenge this time is rescuing the niece of her friend Holly, while she is also trying to keep her pal Billie Jo alive. Since the case with Billie Jo also seems to involve Uncle Joey, she has her hands full.I really like these books because Shelby also values her family and her husband, even when she's attracted to Uncle Joey's bodyguard Ramos. Colleen Helme gives her heroine depth with the challenges and inner conflicts that she makes Shelby face.Really recommend this series to anyone who likes mysteries with an off beat character as a heroine.

    I received this book as an arc for a honest review. I love the Shelby Nichols adventures, she found she could read minds after being shot in supermarket robbery. She is really seems to be an inept detective who just seems to be lucky and fall into solving the mystery with Detective Dimples and her friends. I love the sparks between her and Uncle Joey's bodyguard Ramos but then I feel guilty because she has a great husband and kids. She totally balances her work life and private life. I love that you have to read the book and don't guess who done it until the end, that is the makings of great mystery writing and with the Blaine character spy because this looks like the series will keep be going strong. This is a great read and part of a great series.

    Love the Shelby Nichols series!I love this series! I like how Shelby seems so normal, and makes mistakes, both hilarious and serious, despite her abnormal gift. It has been fun to see her transform from an everyday housewife to an intrepid slueth and crime fighter. I have devoured all the novels in this series, and can't wait for the next one!

    another amazing addition to Colleen Helme's Shelby Nichols Adventure! loved it and its a totally fast-paced, page turner kind of book, each page just brings out some exciting thing that's happening to Shelby that you just cant wait to find out. Cant wait for the next instalment to the series. 5 Massive Stars for this book (maybe more).

    Loved this latest instalment of Sheby's adventures. I couldn't put it down and ended up reading it all in one sitting. Now I can't wait for the next book. I guess I'll just have to start with Carrots and read the rest again. Thank you Colleen, keep them coming.

    In this book Shelby can't say that the majority of trouble that arise stems from Uncle Joey.It is only a matter of time that the children would have gotten involved. Now Dimples (Dect. Harris) knows. *sigh* I am not sure how many people will know before we get to the of the book in the series.Currently Chris knows because he is her husband. Uncle Joey knows because of Kate. Kate knows because Shelby was buying time not being killed. Ramos kind of figured it out but she confirmed it. Now Dect. Harris aka Dimples. How much more longer will it be before her children find out and how will the react.well she almost got through the whole book without being maimed. Those martial skils come in handy and I am glad she and Savannah are learning.

    Shelby is an idiotShelby is an idiot. I keep reading these books hoping that I'll see some growth in her character. Unfortunately, I've been disappointed. I'm not sure what satisfaction the author gets out of making her main character a complete idiot who lacks the common sense of a 10 year old, but it's completely disheartening. Add that to Shelby's lack of understanding for the feelings of her husband, the complete disregard for the safety of her family and her growing romance with an assassin, and these books are completely ridiculous. Reading these books is almost as bad as reading a trashy romance novel. I'm embarrassed for people to know that I've read it.

    Living In this one we see more of shelbys 's past. I liked the angle of her high school sweetheart because we get to see a more personal side to her. Her new ability is really cool. I also like that she is developing new relationships. This is definitely turning into a Scooby doo type setting. I like the comedic aspects too

    Summary from Goodreads:"Shelby Nichols isn’t your average soccer-mom turned private investigator. She’s more on the quirky side with a little wild thrown in. That’s because a near-fatal gunshot wound to the head left her with the ability to read minds. This lands her in all kinds of trouble, and this time is no exception. Helping a reporter, Billie Jo, get the low-down on a case is just the tip of the iceberg. When her best friend’s niece goes missing, Shelby is pulled into a conspiracy that involves the police and the leader of a violent drug ring. Add to that a stranger in town with ties to the mob-boss she works for, along with a known assassin out to kill him, and Shelby is crossing danger at every turn. Will she find the answers in time? Or will this be her last adventure?"My Thoughts:A mystery series based on the fact that the main character can hear what everyone around her is thinking? How could I possibly resist? I couldn't and found myself instantly intrigued on how this unique ability would play out. I love a good mystery series and just knew that I would enjoy this one based off this premise alone. It was certainly unique and very entertaining! Shelby works as a private investigator but also helps out with police investigations when asked. No one but her husband and a few select others knows about her ability to hear others' thoughts. This means that she allows for everyone to believe that she has premonitions to help explain her knowing things she shouldn't. Even though I started mid-series (this is the seventh book) I was easily able to immerse myself within the storyline, and the fact that I hadn't read those previous books really didn't matter a whole lot. I know there are some details that I am missing but since I enjoyed this one so much I will just go back and start at the beginning. In this book, Shelby finds herself caught up in a couple of different investigations. Each one seems to be unrelated to the others and Shelby really has her work cut out for her. I loved getting the chance to hear the other character's thoughts and really found it interesting as Shelby was constantly working to not give her true abilities away. It was a balancing scenario and one that she didn't always do well. It really added to the suspense as I wanted to see if anyone would be able to figure out her secret.The mystery portion of this book was well done and kept me reading way later than I should have. I liked that the author also portrayed Shelby's family life and responsibilities throughout the book. It helped to show the constant balancing act as she tries to juggle her investigations and the needs of her family. My one and only complaint with the book was that I didn't quite get her attraction to Ramos. She has a husband that she clearly loves but yet there was some very strong feelings towards Ramos that I just didn't quite understand. Maybe this comes from me not having read previous books but really that was the only part of the book that didn't work for me.Overall, I really enjoyed this book and am eager to read more from this series. I liked watching Shelby work through investigations while trying not to give her true secrets away to others. This book was both fast paced and fun to read. I really just enjoyed this one as a whole and was left very excited about this series. I can't wait to go back to the beginning and see how everything started very Shelby! Definitely recommended to other mystery lovers who enjoy some paranormal thrown in.Bottom Line: A mystery series that has one of the most unique characters that I have ever had the pleasure to read about!Disclosure: I received a copy of this book as part of a Reading Addiction Virtual Blog Tour. Thoughts are my own!

    Crossing Danger has her working a bit more as a consultant than with Uncle Joey which I liked. I am not saying that she didn’t help but it just didn’t take up most of the story. Most of this story dealt with her friends missing niece and the mess she had gotten into and the fall out of it. Besides working with the police on that cause Dimples aka Detective Harris, asked for her help on a cold case. She is also still helping Billy Jo with a case.In true Shelby style, it seems that no matter what she does she always ends up in some sort of trouble. I also find this one a bit harder to talk about without giving away parts of the plot but I do love how the author seems to take this case and that case and sort of tie them all together at the end, and your like …oh.I love all the characters as always. There was a new one who we might be seeing more of and that is Agent Blake. He has dealings with Uncle Joey, but he is an FBI agent and he is impressed with Shelby’s premonition and interrogation techniques. It’s a lot easier to interrogate when you can read their mind! So I am curious to see where this will take Shelby in the future!Besides Shelby my two other favorite characters were Billy Jo and Dimples, they just make such a cute couple. I really think Dimples has his hands full with Billy Jo!If you haven’t checked out this series yet I would highly recommend you try them as each book is great and a lot of fun. If your an audio person I would also recommend listening to them as they are so laugh out loud funny at times. :)

    Crossing Danger is the latest novel in the Shelby Nichols Adventure Series. We find Shelby, our resident psychic and private investigator, caught up in the middle of yet another mystery. This time it's her best friend, Holly, asking for help with her missing teenage niece. Throw in a triple homicide, an attack on a good friend, a possible dirty cop, an assassin out to get Uncle Joey, and the everyday challenges of a wife and mother and you have an average week for Shelby Nichols. Colleen Helme has created an elaborate mystery with the perfect amount of suspense and action. The mystery, although intricate, with a variety of players and several crimes, is presented in an engaging and organic way. The story is generated through believable character actions, not purely for plot reasons. The clues are revealed gradually and with precision. Helme has written a number of complex characters that help drive her story. They add depth and a greater sense of realism. Shelby isn't just another "damsel in distress" who stumbles into a mystery. She has all the qualities of a great female protagonist; she is strong, able, intelligent, and gutsy, while still remaining natural with fears and insecurities. I also enjoyed the paranormal aspect of Shelby being able to read minds. It added a little something extra to the story. I wanted to keep reading, not only because of the storyline, but I was invested in the characters as well. I devoured this book and look forward to joining Shelby on more adventures. ~Erin

    another good story, liked the way it was all pulled together at the end
