So, today I decided to review another mystery book that belongs to a series that has easily become one of my favorite mystery series that I have read. Deep in Death by Colleen Helme is the sixth book in the Shelby Nichols series, and it is another doom and glum for our beloved heroine!
The book description came from the Goodreads website:
“Running “errands” for her mob-boss employer, Joey “The Knife” Manetto, often ends with Shelby in trouble, making her cautious about continuing her association with him. Instead, she focuses on a new client who hires Shelby to find her missing mother. What seems like a routine case turns into something more sinister and deadly than she ever imagined. In the meantime, Uncle Joey has summoned Shelby to his office, where she runs into her former nemesis.
Shelby inadvertently hears something that makes her fear for the lives of Uncle Joey and his hit-man, Ramos. This time, Uncle Joey is not sure he wants to involve Shelby in something he knows could get her killed. Keeping Shelby’s involvement to a minimum has disastrous results, sending Shelby on a dangerous path. As her investigation unfolds, Shelby finds death at every turn, and soon realizes she is in over her head. Can she escape from danger in time? Or will she find herself deep in death?”
Shelby Nichols has easily joined the ranks of my favorite female sleuths. She will stop at nothing to protect the people she loves, even if that means risking her life in the process to stop a killer. Each book in this amazing series sees our heroine on a dangerous path that could lead to her demise, and it is really interesting to see how she gets out of these situations.
Colleen creates a story that will leave you guessing until the end, with humor and sexual tension mixed throughout the story. Over the course of this series I have fallen in love with these amazing characters, and I have loved learning more about them as the story goes on! Plus, it isn’t so bad to have a motorcycle riding, black leather, mob hit man, Ramos thrown into the mix! I can’t wait to see where Colleen takes the characters next!
Go on a wild ride full of murder, laughter, and danger my dear readers!
