Bullet Point a Nikki Nielsen novel

Northridge is changing – long-time residents have passed on, new housing developments spring up in old farm fields, and officials have approved the city’s first major shopping mall. As Nikki settles into her role as Northridge Press publisher, reporter Andrew Myles dogs his arch rival Police Chief Daniel Sullivan. They butt heads over a domestic tragedy that rocks Nikki to her core – and is not at all what it seems to be.

Reeling in the wake of an explosion that kills her ex-husband, Northridge Press publisher Nikki Nielsen struggles to co-parent her eight-year-old daughter, Kelly, with Jeff’s widow, Terese. The two women close ranks to protect Kelly from a stalker who may be connected to Jeff’s death and a long-buried secret that touches the lives of several prominent Northridge families – a crime someone desperately wants to expose, and avenge.
