Great Next Step!
on February 16, 2016
In what appears to be the second installment of a series starring fearless, intelligent, everyday girl Nikki Sands, she finds herself sleuthing her way to a new living. She has settled into a new job (not a detective), in a new place (not a prison), and finds herself compelled to find the murderer of a bride so her friend can be exonerated, I really like how the author continues the main story line (life of Nikki Sands) while the crime happens all around her. I guess we could say this is more like real life, including a life of love.
Like the original book, the characters appear real and someone that may be lurking in the coffee shop across the street. I love the increased role of the “Boys of Summer”. These characters not only add humor, but have an appeal that I would rather hope finds its way into more scenes. However, what I thought was a cute little ad-on in the last book, turned out to be a nice little salad with a wine pairing. Now I know nothing about real wine pairing, but the salad was very nice, so I expect the wine would be, too, I look forward to trying these little culinary gifts.
That being said. I can say that this series is growing on me. Not only do I want to find out where the underlying story line is going, I am really interested in how Nikki Sands solves her mystery. We have a little background now and it makes Nikki Sands, Detective, sound not so far fetched. I'll bet she has a great solve rate. I am definitely looking forward to the next mystery.
