The Good With The Bad
1 May 2018
This is a 3.5 star read.
I really struggled with this novel, the 6th in the Nikki Galena series, which was quite perplexing as I normally hang on every word the author writes and I'm totally mesmerised with her characters Nikki and her partner Joseph.
Maybe it was because I was coming out of a reading slump and I see it took me nearly a month to read this, so I'm thinking it was more than likely that I was having a hard time connecting and feeling invested in the main characters this time. However, by halfway through the novel Nikki and her team became far more animated, the story flew by and I was riveted to the action both criminal and personal.
Fluid and well written as always, the story had a few subplots that were woven seamlessly into the main plot ensuring an exciting revelatory conclusion . I feel the author has set in process a big upheaval in the future of the series with Tamsin and Niall's engagement and the possibility of a marked change in Nikki's and Joseph's friend based relationship, with the arrival of his ex-wife on the scene. It should make for a very exciting start to the next book in the series! (which you know I have already downloaded. 😜)
