Summary

For a mind reader like Shelby Nichols, finding a murderer should be a piece of cake. But add an overzealous prosecuting attorney with a grudge against her, and the wrong person could end up in jail. Can Shelby find the real killer before he strikes again? (From the Summer Snoops Anthology)

USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling author Colleen Helme offers a clever mix of mystery, laugh-out-loud humor, and adventure in the highly acclaimed Shelby Nichols Adventure Series.

Light and fun murder mystery novella!

With Marked for Murder, the 12th novel in the Shelby Nichols series, being released on May 23 author Colleen Helme released this little jewel to whet our appetites. (Note that Audible is still not confirming the release or the date, but the author says she expects it to be available.) For those not familiar with the Shelby Nichols cozy mystery series it is a lot like Jana DeLeon's Miss Fortune series. There is also a mild paranormal element (mind reading). The novels do not need to be read in order, but reading Carrots first is necessary. Wendy Tremont King narrates all novels in the series superbly.

Shelby is one of my favorite protagonists

Delightful blend of humor and suspense in this fast paced novel. Shelby is delightful and so is the narrator, Wendy Tremont King. Wendy hits the target in portraying the lead character, Shelby Nichols. It's good that Shelby is easy-going and pleasant, otherwise her talent of reading people's minds could be painful. But, she has a way of brushing off the negative that makes you feel good about her and her crazy life. I can see why the police, the CIA and a gangster boss all want her assistance and with the way this book is written, it all makes sense. This series has given me hours of pleasure.

Even a short rocks

As always Shelby takes us in a roller-coaster of emotions and in this short story she even finds a new skill. Between laughs and bitting fingernails we spend a great time. Now for the next one...

Nice short story

The story was very enjoyable, “short and sweet”. As usual, Wendy Tremont King did her usual excellent job bringing the story to life. Even though the story was short, it had all the qualities of a good full length story. A very nice treat. Thank you, Colleen Helme.

Great Short Story!

Colleen gave us a little of every body, always need more of Ramos! But I hope Shelby and Ramos never get together. Wendy is the Best Narrator, love when she is in character with Shelby Nichols! Can't wait to read Marked for Murder, saving that for my vacation!

Great, engrossing story

This novella is a great story, engrossing with plenty of action. If you are thinking about reading the Shelby Nichols series, listen to this quick, faced paced story. A stay at home mom that gets psychic abilities from an accident, now consults for the police and oh, a mob boss and a hit man? That is a sticky situation in itself. What did Shelby get into now? Will she make it out ok? Really good story and a good series. Exciting ending. Give it a listen.

A good book any time of the day or night

I really enjoyed this book! I just love the characters and the by play between them. The way Shelby has to work between the good and the bad to keep every body happy is fun to listen to or read. I also found the introduction of the dog amusing and can't wait to see how that will develop in the next book. Shelby is called in when the police arrest a man for murder and 'Dimples' believes they have the wrong man. Of course the case get complicated when she turns to Uncle Joey's right hand man for help. You would think being able to read minds would make life simple but not for Shelby especially in some of the situation she finds herself in. The narrator was very good and easy to listen to adding to the fun of the book. I would recommend this book.
