Her initial description of the book:
"I have either a romance with suspense elements or a thriller with romantic elements. Kind of stuck in between."
So I wound up reading it, and became mildly addicted. She only sent me bits at a time as she edited a few steps ahead of my reading, so I was always eagerly awaiting the next installment. She is currently going through her next round of edits, and asked me if I knew anyone who might be interested in reading through the next incarnation of the book.
I thought I'd share some quotes from emails I sent her while reading, to give you an idea of whether the book might be your cup of tea or not:
"I'm reading [your chapters] now and enjoying them - already had a laugh out loud moment, and am intrigued. And also chilled by the 'bad guy' of the story!"
"I finished the chapters, and really enjoyed them! I definitely want to read more, if you're happy to send them over. :) I found myself laughing loudly at a lot of the scenes, but it's also scary and suspenseful with the <character name redacted> factor.I also am *very* interested in the developing romance element."
"I have finished all your chapters & am really eager to read on ;)My feeling so far is you have a really great story, and the chapters can use polishing ... but otherwise the story is great."
"Hey, finished reading this as well - definitely a game changer!!"
"I got up to the bit where <character name redacted>'s being confronted by the psycho - you're killing me with the suspense!! LOL."
Soooo, all that said, if you'd be interested in reading the novel after the current round of edits, please let me know and I will get you in touch with the writer. :)
