Today I showcasing an author who I a

This series is one of my must reads. The name caught my attention. I wonder how come carrots could involved in a mystery. So I downloaded the book to see. It is an adventure packed book. There is a paranormal aspect. There are  10 books in the series and an off one about Ramos. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book and series.

“My life changed that day because I didn’t have any carrots. I was driving home when the dark, threatening clouds that had been gathering all afternoon finally let loose, and it began to pour. It was April, so rain wasn’t unexpected, but it couldn’t have come at a worse time. All I wanted to do was go home and relax, but first I had to stop at the grocery store and pick up some carrots. I was planning on making chicken soup for dinner, but I didn’t have any carrots, and everyone knows you can’t make chicken soup without carrots.”


A new author for me which was billed as a mystery and it turn out be an adventure or chick lit. The plot was great and the writing excellent. The end was riveting and I didn’t put the book down until I knew end. Shelby is a housewife who forgot to buy carrots for supper. While in the grocery store she encounters a bank robber. The bullet just graces her head. When she awaken realize that she can read other people’s minds. A co-worker is trying to entice her husband. In the process a Mob Boss learns her secret and forces her to work for him. The ending is spectacular. The style of the story reminds me of Stephanie Plum. I will read more of this series.

Book 11 will be released June 29, 2018 I have pre-order it

Amazon says:

“How many times can a person escape death? Shelby Nichols may be one lucky gal, but this time, her luck is about to run out.

Working for a mob-boss has danger written all over it, but when an escaped convict with a lust for revenge goes after him, it’s up to Shelby and her mind-reading skills to keep Uncle Joey alive.”

  1. Happy Friday!

    My FLF comes from a book I will be reading next, Falling for the Cowgirl by Tina Radcliffe.

    “I like Zeb Turner for the assistant ranch foreman position.” Travis Maxwell looked across the conference table at his sisters, Lucy and Emma, hoping for confirmation, and then shoved another cinnamon roll into his mouth.

    Have a great weekend and happy reading!😊

  2. I’ve been tempted by this, now I’ll have to give it a try – I do love carrots 😉

    I’m sharing from the prologue of King’s Folly by Jill Williamson on my blog today, so here I’ll share from the first chapter:

    “A procession of fifty men made their way through the cool desert night from the royal retreat in Canden toward The Gray. Fifty-one men, technically, though the king did not count the wailing convict riding in the cage since the man would soon be dead.”

    And on that cheerful note, happy Friday!

    • The name attract me but the book has nothing about carrots. They can be Shelley ‘s life. I hope visit all the posts today. I am behind so I won’t get to it, hopefully tomorrow.

    Ohhhhh I love that! What a name and first line for grabbing attention!

    Today’s first lines come from Kat Mizera’s new release, Defending Dani. This was a super sweet and emotional hockey romance.

    “Sergei Petrov got out of the taxi and hurriedly paid the drive as he grabbed his bag. He hadn’t seen his son in more than two months and couldn’t wait to look into his sweet little face.”

    I’m featuring lines from Lexi Blake’s new release “Order of Protection” on my blog. Check out to see the start of her newest series!

    “He shouldn’t be here.”

    Happy weekend! 😀
