We have made it to another weekend, and I hope you have all had a great week so far! Today I decided to review another book in one of my favorite series, The Shelby Nichols Series. Trapped By Revenge by Colleen Helme, is the fifth book in this amazing series.
The book description was taken from the Goodreads website:
“With summer over Shelby is looking forward to having some time to herself while the kids are back in school. A phone call from Uncle Joey ruins her plans, but she manages to take it in stride. After lunch with her friend, she promises to meet with the private investigator who was spying on Uncle Joey, but this simple task turns into a disaster. Not only does she find the P.I. dead, but a slip of paper with her name on it under his lifeless hand implicates her for his murder.
Desperate to prove her innocence and find the person who killed him, Shelby begins a frantic search. She enlists the aid of the local mob boss, Uncle Joey, his hit-man, Ramos, and her police detective friend, Dimples, but soon finds that nothing can save her from becoming entangled in a sinister plot. With her life on the line and no way out, she finds herself trapped by revenge, and realizes it will take all her skills to escape. Now she must choose where her loyalties lie, and hope she doesn’t trade something bad, for something even worse.”
Colleen has created a love able, relatable character in one Shelby Nichols. I have loved every book in this series, and this one just brings a new mess of trouble for Shelby to get out of. These stories see our heroine put in a difficult position when she is the main suspect in someone’s murder. She has to try to figure out who the real killer is, clear her name, and do this all while putting herself and her family in danger.
Colleen creates stories that will pull you in, you will laugh, cry, and scream. Your heart races with each new adventure and you will root for Shelby to save the day again and again. I recommend this series to anyone who wants a thrilling, adventure ride full of danger and mystery.
Go on a dangerous journey with Shelby as she tries to save herself and her family!
