Book 6 in the Heller series. There’s not much ordinary about Tilly Chalmers’ life as a security officer. Her latest assignments – two jobs involving children; protection of a valuable jewellery collection; and security at an unusual conference – provide plenty of adventures for her.

Waiting......waiting.......still waiting. Don't you just love an author that makes you CRAZY waiting for their books to be published?????

New Post.
Well....after reading the latest in the Hiller series, I am sadly disappointed. The sparkle and wit that made the other books in this series so entertaining was sadly lacking in Heller's Regret.

Okay, I just literally gobbled up the last six books in this series in about 6 days!
I LOVED the characters, writing, and story-lines in each and every one.

Throughout the series this is how I pictured Heller

If anything bad is going to happen, it would absolutely happen to Tilly.
She has been nick-named by the other people she works with at Heller Security as a 'trouble magnet'.

I'm going to make this review short and sweet, because I've got WAY too many books to be read and not enough TIME in the day!!!!

I don't know what it is about J D Nixon's books... but she has me completely addicted to her writing and her characters!!! I've been waiting for this 6th episode of Heller with bated breath, and she DELIVERS again... as expected.

In this book, Tilly finds herself once again dragged through all sorts of muck out of nothing but the kindness o
Lizzeth "Too many books so little time"
I did not enjoy this book. The last two installments have been lacking of the magic the first books had. The humor has dissapeared and some very questionable supernatural stories have been added. Why questionable you might ask? Well, because they are extremely poorly written making them unbelievable. When you try to write something as a build up to a bigger story line, its important to do it right, so it will not only provide for a much richer reading experience, but that, it will also leave the ...more

3 I'm not sure what I just read stars. I struggled with whether or not I should leave a rating for this book, but in the end decided to (mostly because there aren't a lot of ratings here yet).

Simply put, I didn't love it. This series has been one of my favorite reads, and I always anticipate when a new book comes out. I pre-ordered this one and was refreshing my iPad all night Tuesday waiting for it to download. I have recommended this series to almost everyone I know. This is why it pains me s

2.5 stars..i loved the first few books but i just havent been able to get into the last couple..theres not enough relationship type stuff for me, especially when it feels like hellers only in about 20% of this book. bit of an odd series that i did love but now i'm kinda losing interest!
Series review:

When aspiring actress; Tilly Chalmers gets booted off her latest gig as a singing and dancing fruit in a children’s show, little does she know that her life is about to change forever.
Landing a job at Heller security , she soon finds herself trying to manage:
- lusty Arabian wives
-a sleazy polygamist pastor
-an Elvis impersonator with a bad hip and a penchant for kicking people in the goulies
-a spider infested T-Rex
-horrible hippie farmers
-and a little boy that’s not really there

I really needed the half point on this one because it should be 3.5... A bunch of stuff happened that bugged me. Like where the heck was Heller when she needed him, but them why wouldn't she let him explain himself..see frustrating. I did like that Tilly got to spend more time on the job with Farrell and half wish they were a couple. I wish there was more to the ending....waiting for the next book to see if happiness happens to poor Tilly.

I've been fascinated by this series since I read book 1. Heller is a complicated man I was cheering for because he was able to recognize Tilly was something special. the story took a bad turn these last two books leaving me to second guess my original thoughts on the series. Heller was absent in this book. missing all of Tilly's turmoil. it's clear from the way Heller can leave her behind without any contact or a reasonable amount of time to say goodbye. oh by the way I'm leaving in the morning ...more
Ahhh that ending! I need the next book!

Sadly, I must give this book 2.5 stars. I was so disappointed with the story line. I skimmed a lot in this book which is a first for me with the Heller series. I thought things may grow with Farrell since he obviously still cares for Tilly. I don't even need to get started on the whole "weirdness" of Malefic & the ghost child or whatever you call it. Didn't seem to fit with the rest of the books in the series. What I like most about this series (up until this book) is the combination of acti ...more

It's a long series and still one more book to go. Despite the name, it's not Heller we read about here, though he is, albeit, a very important part.
Our protagonist is the tall, charming, generous, and kindhearted Tilly (Matilda) Chalmers who out of desperation joins a security agency headed by the handsome Heller. And that is precisely when her life completely changes (whether for the best or worst, that is highly debatable). In fact, the things that happen to her from the moment she sets foot

I would have rated this a 3.5 stars if not for making me cry (view spoiler) that devastated me (view spoiler) so i was especially feeling her pain.

So finally this one is a 4.5 stars, the half point is for Heller being away so much and not being there for Tilly. I'm afraid that Tilly will turn out a second Stephanie Plum, so i hope that she gets her shit straightened out in the next book.

I wasn't going to write anything about this book, but I just feel like I have to complaim about this finale. I mean: WHAT THE HELL, Mrs. Nixon?

Ok, firstly: I want to kick Heller in the goolies myself! The bastard. I've seen him twice on this book. At the beggining and at the very end! I missed him and that's probably why I kind of fell in love with Farell and may kind of like Clive <3

I want to know what comes next!!!!! I just can't believe what happened here: I'll miss the papa besides all th

Wow, Wow, Wow, I can't even find the words to describe how sensational this book was. If you haven't read the others in the Heller series I strongly suggest you do. The first book is free & you will be hooked from the get go! I have seen so many changes in the characters, Tilly has evolved & grown up so much from the first book. It's so refreshing to see a strong opinionated woman in her, although she still finds trouble or it finds her everywhere she goes, some things will never change. ...more

First of all, I will continue my work as a Hellervangelist and spread the news of the good books.

BUT...a very reluctant and sheepish 3.5.

- I REALLY liked the book very much through the first half. It got to the point and was very well paced.
- Tilly's first assignment truly showcased Ms. Nixon's ever-evolving talents. It was very creepy.
- I felt there might be some competition for Heller since Farrell and Tilly spent more time working together. This had a great deal of potential.

I truly enjoyed this series. I loved getting to know all the characters in Heller's world. Getting to know this group of misfits was both hilarious and sad at times. It was lovely to see how this group made a family.
I honestly couldn't wait to see how the author was going to end this series. I was looking forward to some closure and a bit more understanding on some of supporting characters. I wondered how the author was going to weave that into her story. Without going into to much detail I was

JD Nixon hasn't disappointed me once in any of her novels. Once again, I found myself reading non-stop, forgetting that I'm actually a mother and wife, and putting off my own work obligations so I could devour Heller's Regret. While Heller's presence in this book isn't as abundant as in previous installments, it didn't lessen the rapid pacing of my eyeballs absorbing each word, nor the overall satisfaction I felt at the end. In truth, the ending is what makes this book so pivotal, and I felt JD ...more

Gah! How could I book make me both want to give it a 1 and give it a 5??

There were some things just so, so right with this book. And some that were just so very, very bad. Nixon has tried to cram too much into this book, and it was infuriating. Sometimes less is more.

I was prepared to give this book one star after reading the first third of it. I could just about get by with the Lake Tranquility boot camp storyline. But then came the Grimsley storyline. Let me firstly say, I cannot bear the para

Even a cursory look at the list of books I've read would show how much I enjoy paranormal and fantasy elements in my stories. Somehow, though, the sudden appearance of woo-woo in the past two Heller books, previously established as real-world based as such a series could be, was jarring and off-putting. I just did not enjoy reading about Tilly contending with the supernatural. Heller's otherworldliness was more than enough for Tilly, and me as a reader, to accept.

I'm not sure how I felt about this book. I felt very detached from it. I honestly felt like someone else wrote this other than JD Nixon. It wasn't at all written like a normal Heller book. Instead of being a part of Tilly's action I felt like she just gave a general overview of most of the situations. I didn't enjoy this book at all and to be honest I'm sort of concerned about Tilly. By now according to all these books, she could be physically scarred everywhere and probably look like Danny hers ...more

Worth the wait? Totally! A part of me wishes that I could have waited until the entire Heller series was finished before reading it, because I HATE having to wait for a series to finish. But it is always worth it. This time was no exception. I think Heller’s Regret was my favorite in the Heller series so far. It had all of the aspects that I love from the series, with the silly situations that Tilly seems to get herself into, the suspenseful parts where you wonder how she will get out of said si ...more
So again don't go by the cover of the book. This series has THE WORST covers in the history of books. It should have a super buff Nordic looking guy on the cover in a skin tight black shirt. Instead it looks like a bad cheesy after school special.

This book was very different from the others. In the beginning of the book I was almost ready to stop reading because I thought they jumped the shark. Tilly goes on an assignment where there are ghosts & she becomes obsessed and the story line is a

I know that we have talked and posted about Heller several times. Honestly, I can't help it. We need to give a little love to out Australian author, JD Nixon. I have read A LOT of books. Nixon's book's are one of a kind. Love each character, Tilly is one of my favorite characters. And there is not one series that I have read that is anything like this one. There is so much that happens and Tilly is outrageous and hilarious, you love her for that. She is the friend you wish you had.

Again very typical adventures of Tilly, disaster and trouble magnet. All in all, she's still finding trouble in all her assignments as a security guard. She has too much heart and gets too involved in situations that could easily be deterred. Her relationship with Heller in book is bare. He leaves on assignment for most of the book.. And it makes it rough on her and her emotional addition to her family troubles it adds on to her stress.. Drives her to rethink if this is the type of rel ...more

I was a little disappointed in this book. Part of the reason probably arose from the abrupt ending and the long wait time between this book and the next. The other part is from the addition of the paranormal - while I do read paranormal books, this sort of came out of nowhere, and didn't really fit in with the rest of the series.

Poor Tilly was tortured a little more than normal in this one, it was well written and shows how strong a person she is, however the absence of Heller did make the book

I love this series. Seriously. Tilly cracks me up and always finds herself in these crazy work-related situations. Her relationship with her boss, Heller, is tested tremendously in book 6. In fact, by the end, do they even have a relationship? That part tore me up because I SO want Heller to be the man that we know is in there. Tilly made the right choice, though, and I can't wait to see where it plays out in book 7. The paranormal assignment was weird. The babysitting the piano child was intere ...more

Tilly and Heller. Two characters crying out for psychological study. We first find Tilly returning after her one-year suspension from Heller's security staff only to find Heller out of the country and Clive (his second in command) in charge of the organization until Heller's returns. It doesn't take the reader long to realize that the 'Little Black Cloud' that has followed her on past assignments has turned into a major vortex capable of inflicting bodily damage and serious pain.
