But first, a word from ... Today's Sponsor
Carrots starts with a bang--a robber shoots everyday housewife Shelby Nichols.  The head wound leaves her alive but with a new skill: "hearing" people's thoughts.  Now her kids think she's too bossy, her husband has a redhead on his mind, and the robber is hunting her down.

Here's the set-up:

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 your feelings, but get you killed.

From the reviewers:

I loved this book!  "Carrots" is one of my all time favorite books! I loved reading it! Shelby is a wonderful, if a bit frustrating character.

Tons of fun!  I love Carrots, it starts out with a bang and never lets up! Imagine what it would be like to hear people's thoughts. In some ways it might be cool, but would you really want to know what they're thinking? Especially about you?

Housewife meets mindreading meets mob - great combo!!!

Colleen has always been fascinated with the idea of magic and as a child pretended she was a princess who could make things happen with just a wave of her wand. 

She has since learned that if you want to accomplish anything worthwhile it comes through a lot of hard work and effort. Which isn't all bad - the secret is to find joy in the journey. That's real magic! 

She lives in Utah with her family and enjoys a good book, drawing, bicycling, and of course, music.
