Devious Minds by Colleen Helme

Shelby Nichols, Book 8

Synopsis: It’s been almost a year since a near-fatal gunshot wound left Shelby Nichols with the ability to read minds. In that time she’s faced one problem after another. She’s been shot at, framed for murder, and targeted by a serial killer, just to name a few. Now she’s trying to help her lawyer husband win a murder trial that will enable him to become a partner in his law firm. Sounds easy, right? But nothing ever goes as planned when it comes to Shelby Nichols.

When special agent, Blake Beauchaine, shows up to collect a debt from Shelby, things get even more complicated, and Shelby is soon on her way to Paris. A routine meeting with a rogue agent reveals a sinister plot, putting Shelby into the cross-hairs of a known terrorist. Even worse, she doesn’t speak French, so it seems her mind-reading abilities won’t help her this time.

Things go from bad to downright dangerous for Shelby, especially since her usual guardians, Uncle Joey, and his hit-man, Ramos, are back in the states. Lost and on her own in the streets of Paris, can Shelby escape the cold-blooded killer in time to stop his devious plans, or will this be the end of the line for Shelby Nichols?


Review: I really like this series. I gave a score of 3.5/5 for Carrots, the first book of the series. The following books have all received the rating of 4/5 stars. I have something for this 8th episode of Shelby’s adventures because it is happening in France.

The situation is serious because Shelby is confronted with a terrorist plot in Paris where nothing goes as planned (which is usual with Shelby). Fortunately, she can count on the help of Ramos who came to France to protect her. The attraction between them is becoming stronger in each new book. Uncle Joey does not appear much in this story, I missed him because the interactions between him and Shelby are always very funny. The plot is very good, the story is full of action and suspense.

The only gripe I can do is regarding the french in the book because there are some small errors, not very important but it is my language so I can only notice them but it did not hinder my reading.

I highly recommend this series!
