Between the Pines
Two psychologically tested personalities run this story based in the 1970's.
Julia, rich and lonely, put in a law program at the University of Montana by her parents, decides her best option is to go to a warmly established coffee house and pick up the best looking guy she can find. I like the start of this.
Alex is out to find someone also and stumbles into the same coffee house. Good looking enough to eat, Julia confronts him as her new prey. She's quite forward and I can look forward to the results of this.
Little does she know, but they have something in common. He's also a student in the same program, which for unknown reasons turns him off. Maybe he doesn't like smart women, maybe his mood has shifted.
Romona Simon shifts the characters from law program at a university to law school, which are drastically different. I chose to consider the students at a university because they did not take the classes seriously and seldom showed up. At a law school that would be a dismissal, and I'm afraid the author is not aware of her topic.
I moved on from the education inconsistencies and want to focus on Julia and Alex. Julia is extremely petty and jealous, so I hope her attitude matures. Alex has many facets and no one is as handsome as he's portrayed as any female within sight falls and swoons all over him.
Here's the bloody meat of the story...Alex continually avoids Julia. Julia chases him, which isn't an attractive attribute, yet I can't help but root for her because he seems to be an ass.
Although, there is an almost sentimental reason he avoids her.
When women are killed in the community, it's a good thing Julia doesn't follow him everywhere. The crux to this incident is that the reader must get the next story to see if Alex straightens out and if Julia doesn't have to play hide-and-seek with him.
I prefer a solid ending when a story claims "The End," but if you don't mind, get the next story and fill me in!

Today, I am excited to be interviewing Tracy Antorcha, who is chatting with me from Florida. Welcome Tracy!
Lexi: What is your favorite color?
Tracy: I like sunrise because it’s the start of a new day, and it’s beautiful. I used to be a ‘night owl’ but after I had kids, that all changed! Lol Now that the kids are grown and I am older, I like to go to bed early and get up early.
Lexi: Do you collect anything? If so, what?
Tracy: I stared collecting seashells when I realized there was such a huge variety to be had. I only collect ones that are visible on the beach, no digging for them and no looking under water for them. It’s fun to walk on the beach and find them – good exercise, too! 😀
Lexi: My sister loves finding things on the beach as well. It's wonderful that you respect the environment while still being able to enjoy nature's beauty. I hear you about the exercise!
Lexi: Thanks so much for sharing with me, Tracy. I enjoyed learning more about you. 😊

alive. Only now someone has decided to use Lennox’s only family as a way to
Helena is caught up in a kidnapping of Lennox’s sister, all designed to get back at Lennox—the most infuriating man she’s ever met. And one she’s cared for since forever. Now to know she was used as a trap to kidnap his sister and to take him out was the worst kind of punishment. But she knew this man. Knew him intimately—if only once—but also knew he was coming to rescue them, even if it meant losing his own life.
Lennox wasn’t letting the only two women in his world be taken out without a fight, … especially one who didn’t even know how he felt …
