|You were correct in your assessment that some do not seek out this type of story, it would definitely not have been what I have sought, but that is what I get for judging a book by the cover. This is an excellent story thus far, what I have read here. I would definitely love to read the finished product. I was captivated the whole time, it had just the right amount of mystery mixed with the drama I enjoy. It also brings to light that judging others based on what they dress like, or speak like, doesn't actually mean they are what is portrayed. Joan is a nice, thoughtful, considerate character, that has the right amount of flaws, but she is honest and real. Any fictional story that incorporates real life situations, thoughts, ideas, areas, or conversations (whether in our own head or with others) is one of my personal favorites. I would be happy to add this to my list of favorites. Well done.
