Book Club Questions for Nicki Sosebee: DEAD

posted in: Various Musings | 0

Boy, I hope writing all these book club questions isn’t annoying the hell out of someone, but the good news is that I will eventually run out of books! 🙂

I know that there are dozens—maybe even hundreds—of generic book club questions available online. That’s good, especially if someone wants to discuss the book but hasn’t read it yet and so she doesn’t know a damn thing about it…but, in my experience, specific questions about that book are so much more helpful. And that’s the main reason why I’m writing questions for each one of my books.

As a quick aside, speaking of book clubs, a friend suggested to me on Facebook over the weekend that I give ecopies of my books to book clubs (along with swag). Well, I don’t personally know any book clubs, or I’d make that offer. So I’m putting out the offer right now to any book club stumbling upon this post: if your book club wants to read my book, give me a holler and I’ll donate something to the cause!

But enough chatter. Let’s get to today’s book! It’s Dead, Nicki Sosebee #2. First, the blurb:

Nicki’s love life might suck, but her sex life is great. The only way both could be spectacular would be if her best friend Sean would look at her as more than just a friend. Nicki knows she’s stuck in the friend zone, so she focuses her energies on her job. She’s becoming a better reporter every day, so when her editor asks her to interview a local politician, Nicki is thrilled. But when the politician’s secretary ends up dead, it’s anybody’s guess as to who did it. Nicki has a few ideas, though, and finds herself in deep trouble as she pokes her nose where she thinks it belongs.

Now for the questions!

How does Nicki grow in this book (from book one, Got the Life)? How do her relationships change? Does she have any revelations about herself?

How does Neal, her Winchester Tribune boss, help her become better at her job?

Readers get to “meet” Nicki’s other bestie Brandy in this book. How does that friendship change the dynamic in the series?

Out of all the men Nicki has “dated” over the past eight years, why do you think Jesse has “flown under her radar,” not only piquing her curiosity but making her quite interested? What do you think is it about him that has attracted her attention?

Based on what you’ve read so far, what do you think will happen with Nicki’s relationship with Sean next?

With what you know about Sean and Jesse right now, which man do you think is the better “fit” for Nicki? Why?

Are there any passages or quotes that stand out to you?

If you could ask Jade one question about this book, what would it be?

If you use these questions for a book club reading, I’d love to know how it goes. If you come up with other questions, I’d love to hear them! Happy reading!
