This story was something quite different for me but I enjoyed it. It was mainly let down from its 5th star because the author happens to be clueless with apostrophes.
I'll be sticking with the Shelby series, though, because it's like nothing else I've read, really, and I liked the idea. The ending was very good as well.
I loved the character of Ramos and even warmed to Uncle Joe as well. Can't make up my mind about Shelby's Chris.....one minute I thought he was a good guy, then in it up to his neck then back again !! I look forward to seeing what occurs in the next book.
The only bit I wasn't keen on was Shelby's persistence in calling a cop Dimples. That seemed a little silly. There were some properly amusing moments in it, though. I loved the cover on this book, too.
This passage got messed up-"I'd barely hung up the phone when Then they'd probably want to stay as far away from me as possible. it rang again"...oops.
There are loads of apostrophe mistakes throughout, though...ladies, Hodges, Dimples, cents all needed one and EMT's and other's had no need of them or they're misplaced.
Reveling should be revelling and burley should be burly and there was some missing punctuation-speechmarks or fullstops. These should have been spotted and it's a pity they were overlooked. Here's hoping book 2 is tidier but still as good.

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. The way the heroine comes to terms with her new accomplishment and then uses it to advantage is quite believable.

An easy read with a likable character, it was a bit predictable at times but I still enjoyed it. Found myself quite liking the 'baddie' character by the end :) Feel like there's a lot more that could come from Shelby so I will look out for the sequel, but wouldn't splash out for it!

I guess I would describe this as a cozy mystery, with humour,some great characters including the main one, and a little twisty too, great entertainment, I read this book quickly because I enjoyed it, far more than I expected to, with a name like Carrots I wasn't sure what to expect but it was great.

Shelby Nichols is an average woman who is married to the only guy she ever fell for. Her life is organized and predictable, revolving around her husband and two children. All that changes the day she stops at the grocery store for some carrots.

As the cashier rings up her purchases, a gunman is busy robbing the bank inside the store. When a customer grabs the robber's mask, he is shot and everyone runs for cover. Everyone except Shelby, who finds herself face to face with the killer. The next thing she knows, she's lying on the floor with a bullet wound to her head.

Luckily, the bullet only grazes her scalp, and she doesn't suspect any lasting affects until later, when she suddenly 'hears' what people are thinking.

With this uncanny ability, her life takes on a whole new dimension. Her kids think she's bossy and too old to understand them, but that's nothing compared to her husband. He says he loves her, but what is it about the redhead at work that he doesn't want her to know?

As if that isn't enough, the gunman knows she can identify him, and he's out to silence her forever. In her fight to stay alive, she is saved from certain death by a handsome hit-man with ties to organized crime. This pulls Shelby even deeper into danger, where knowing someone's thoughts can not only hurt her feelings, but get her killed.

I loved this book!

Shelby goes from stay-at-home mom, to reluctantly working for a mob boss. All because she needed carrots!

In this fun and fast paced story, excellently narrated by Wendy Tremont King. With a great set of characters, in this well plotted and written first in a series novel.
