The opening of this story hooked me. I am only at chapter seven and fully intend to keep reading until the entire story plays out. Every scene was enticing, building on each other to round out the characters and the plot. The characters are immediately likeable and realistic. The dialogue is realistic. The descriptions are concise, pull the reader in and touch their senses with what is happening around them. There is happiness, sadness, humor, romance, all subtly woven into the prose, sprinkled throughout is foreboding, waiting for a shoe to drop. This is a well crafted story, devoid of fluff and yet full of emotion. The writing skills,, grammar, punctuation, spelling and sentence structure are wonderful. I look forward to more from this author.
