Book Review: Nikki Blue Source of Trouble by Jack Chaucer

Title: Nikki Blue: Source of Trouble (Nikki #2)
Author: Jack Chaucer
Publisher: Createspace
Published: October 9, 2015

Nicole Janicek has survived being shot, but can she overcome the blues of her early 20s?

Nearly four years after foiling a shooting plot at her high school and saving countless lives, Nikki begins a short-lived internship as a newspaper reporter; gets hired as a flak by an organization whose leadership consists of people labeled troublemakers by the Church of Scientology; confronts the source of her nightmares, Thomas Lee Harvey; puts her long-term relationship with Derek Schobell to the test; learns a disturbing secret from her friend, Adam Upton, and considers a high-risk offer to leave the planet forever.

Can this former teenage hero and trailblazer rescue herself from the consequences of her own decisions? Or does every path in front of her lead to trouble?
First of all I'm glad to have the opportunity to review another Jack Chaucer's book. I reviewed the first book entitled Streaks of Blue way back October 16, 2013 (review link is provided). I enjoyed that first book and this second one didn't fail me. I do like how the author writes because he isn't just creating a book but his works has a connection to the real world or the things that is happening around. 

This book focuses on Nikki's new life as an adult, the struggles, change of environment, jobs, money, relationship and many more things, but for me there are two factors that stands out, money and relationship. Money because Nikki gave up her internship when there were someone who offered he a new job with big deals. Relationship because she gave up the love of her life Derek due to her selfish decisions. The Nikki I met before who saved the life of many people changed in this book. She evolved from someone more not-so-Nikki.

I can't blame Nikki for she has dreams of her own but what happened to her is the result of an unplanned decision. The book has it's lessons on his own which is really applicable to our own lives. You won't get lost in the story because this was different from the other one though it is a second book it can be a stand alone. I had a great time reading this, I had goosebumps because Nikki still wants to save somebody else life even her own is just like a puzzle.

If the readers want something new and a life changing kind of book, I suggest you guys should read this book. It was worth your time, actually no matter how busy I am lately I managed to read and give time to finish this book. I always look forward to what the new chapter has to offer.

 Sometimes I just wish things were the way they used to be.

I know it's hard when people you knew for years suddenly grow up and move on.
