Fans of Liz Evans will love this - it's funny and silly without becoming ridiculous, and a hapless heroine who is not Superwoman but basically bluffs her way out of trouble. The characters are stereotypes which makes it an easy read, but this book is not about personalities - it's about a fun plot, plenty of action, and despite the unlikely premise, believable and down to earth.
Although I like this book - I don't think I'll be reading many more in the series. When I read the synopses and just saw more of the same, and pretty much being sequels to this book I was a bit put off. My feelings is that no book in a series should rely on a previous book too much and may have been better off developing new characters and new cases, with maybe the original characters having the odd walk on role. That's just my preference though, I'm sure that those that like familiarity and easy read for the beach will love them, and I certainly enjoyed reading this one, and would recommend.
Shelby is an amazing character, she's a fun mix of ditzy and resourceful. At times she's infuriating, getting herself into scrapes without thinking but of course, uses her new gift to wiggle her way out of them.
This is like a less supernatural take on Charlaine Harris' Stackhouse series, with a likable and down to earth woman has the ability to read minds and what a decent human being would do with such an ability. In this case, make chicken enchiladas and help the police in their investigations.
Everyone I've described this book to has been interested: 'housewife is shot in the head by a bankrobber, can now read minds and is forced to help out a mob boss'. What's not to love? That's pretty much what drew me in.
The organised crime part of this book is great fun, Shelby ends up helping the leader of the local mob after repeating something she overheard in someone's thoughts and then admitting everything to save the lives of her family (standard). She's now helping him determine the loyalties of those closest to him and rooting out any traitors.
Obviously, she has to wear a wig to do this. And sunglasses.
These are the things that keep the book light and funny, Shelby is sweet and eccentric and infinitely likable. While she loves her family, she can't help but enjoy her new power and the new purpose and variety it's brought to her life. Not least, meeting the mysterious Ramos, hired hitman and bodyguard who has more than a passing interest in her and her wellbeing.Read more ›
My usual genre are nitty gritty thrillers, this book is the complete opposite, light hearted, funny and brilliantly written.
The way each character comes to life throughout the book is well done, it's a madcap adventure that all started because the main character had forgotten to get carrots for soup she was making. After entering the store the store gets held up and Shelby has a near miss when a bullet nicks her head and she finds she can hear what people are thinking. I know this sounds far fetched, however, what ensues is an amazingly, well written storyline where Shelby finds herself working for Dimples (a policeman), her husband and the head of a mobster company.
An immensely funny, witty, madcap adventure. Please read, it's hilarious and so well written.
This is a quirky read and did get a little unbelievable towards the end in the hostage scenes, but other than that it was a good story with some loveable characters that advanced through the story at a good rate.
Left me thinking that maybe it wouldn't be great to read peoples minds!!

Very clever. The author has taken a very difficult theme for a plot: telepathy, and has managed to create a very plausible story without making it corny or ridiculous. Read morePublished 4 months ago by DaveL
