"Innocent Bystander (Nicki Sosebee #7)" By: Jade C. Jamison
I have to say that this series keeps getting better and better. Another 5* Nicki Sosebee adventure. Nicki is growing up in her professional life and tackling the difficult stories as a freelance reporter for the local paper, which serves to highlight her naivety in her own surroundings. She has been living in her own bubble for so long but now she has a purpose. Nicki starts to investigate the local drugs scene and raise awareness of the issue as she did with the homeless issue in 'One More Time'. Unfortunately for Nicki, those involved have far reaching power in the community and Nicki is, once again, in danger. If only this was all Nicki had to deal with then it would be enough but no, unfortunately, things are not going well for her in the rest of her life either. Her car has gone kaput, her other job as a waitress has seen new owners move in and give her crappy shifts and reduced hours and she has to move in with Sean when her finances take a downward turn. Hang on, moving in with Sean isn't such bad thing right!?! They have been attracted to each other for forever but something has always stopped them from getting it together. Is this their time? Will living in such close proximity force them to confront their feelings for each other? I was gripped from start to finish, feeling Nicki's frustrations with her and wanting Sean and Nicki to finally end up together. Jade C Jamison has created a set of characters that you fall in love with: Nicki is independent, sassy, fun and knows her own mind, which frequently gets her into trouble. Sean is protective, calming, passionate and wants the absolute best for Nicki. As Nicki has unleashed a hornet's nest upon herself, this is only the start of her troubles. I can't wait to see where the series takes her next!
