My goodness, I just really enjoy Nikki Bryant! She’s such a great main character for this series, and I was so excited to get her back in the second book in this series!
The thing I love so much about cozy mysteries is that I get the murder and investigative aspect, but it’s a bit more light hearted and fun! Lauren Carr knows how to capture that balance perfectly! This plot was so much fun! I loved how the story unfolded and everything that happened along the way!
I really enjoyed this story, and I highly recommend it to readers who enjoy cozy mysteries and love a fun-loving main character! You can read this one as a standalone, but Killer Deadline was great, so I would recommend starting with book 1 if you are looking for a new series!

Nikki Bryant’s Next Case Takes Her to the Wrong Side of Murder
One spring morning, Jodi Gibbons got up and went to school as she did every day. Her young life went sideways though when the police found that her mother had been brutally killed during the night.
Twenty years later, many in Pine Grove believe Jodi got away with murder. After all, how could she have possibly slept through her mother’s violent death in the very next room?
After decades of silence, Jodi accepts investigative journalist Nikki Bryant’s invitation to tell her side of the story. However, before the interview can take place, someone silences Jodi permanently.
Now it is up to Nikki Bryant and her friends to uncover the secret that Jodi Gibbons has been protecting—a secret someone believes it is worth killing to keep from being revealed.
