MD,

Okay, here I am. I started at the beginning to refresh my memory and have read every word. You have a smooth, easy-to-read style and I'm loving the story.

One suggestion: Because you introduce so many characters so quickly in the first few chapters, I found that I had to pull out a blank index card and make notes of who was married to who and who was sleeping with who and so forth.

Maybe its just me--but I wonder if you might include a cast of characters as part of the prologue?

Just a thought...

    This is the first time it's been mentioned, but I can see where that could be an issue. I've already run into that issue when I've read other books, too. I'll have to contact my agent and see if that's an acceptable option, Tracy. Sorry about the index card! LOL I'm glad to hear you're enjoying the story, though.

    Thanks hugely!

    XO

The accident was nicely done, M, and your ending keeps the reader wanting to turn that page! You really have me wondering what'll happen next...had he called Dana? Was it the Lexus that took him to the motel? Did someone else beat him to the Davis house? I have a feeling the next chapter isn't gonna tell me a thing, right? lol

Smiles,
Indy :>)

Looking for more twists. For now, we already know what and why happened in the prologue. Usually, we dont' want to have the clues to the prologue for a couple of hundred pages. But let's see... :)

    You'll be surprised. I'm betting on it.

    I appreciate all your reading and reviewing, Azbukivedi!

Sometimes the editor has a mind of its own. What I usually do is post it in regular modd, then set preview, then when editing, go into advanced. This seems to work for me.
Okay, yes, the story is still moving forward. Great job

    It sounds like I've got some "editor" issues I didn't catch. I'll go back and check it out, Book.

    Thanks!

    I'm so glad you feel that way, Charlie. I hope you continue to enjoy the story as much with every chapter. Just let me know if you find something that doesn't work right.

    Thanks!

LOL! I often have the double-spacing problem myself, Marjorie. I don't see any nits or SPAG in this chapter, either. I enjoyed the cliff-hanger ending, and I'm assuming the next chapter will be from someone else's POV, to keep the reader wondering what happens next to Valerie Davis a bit longer.

Great chapter.

I'm off to Chapter 8's L&K!

    Right you are, Heather! Gotta' keep everyone guessing.

    Now I'd better start preparing Chapter 9 for L&K.

    Thanks again!

Marjorie,

As you said, the plot thickens. But I think Nick is a bit slow in the head. If Dana is going to two-time her current boyfriend, why wouldn't she do the same to Nick. In fact, I expect this.

You did a good job of creating Nick as a weak individual. We'll see how this turns out.

I didn't find any spags.

I give up trying to figure it out. You are doing a great job of keeping the reader interested. Any one of the characters could be the killer. Mind boggling.

    The primary suspects are all lined up now. I promise not to bring any more into the mix, but I do promise you more surprises.

    I'm so happy to have you following the story, Ransomme! Thank you.
