Hi Becky!

I'm actually very excited to read this though I feel bad because I haven't even finished 'Over the Edge'. I'm spoiling myself here, but I'll pretend I'm new to these characters as I read this story.

Anyway, I thought this was a good opening chapter. You've made an interesting contrast between absolute serenity and turmoil. As it appears, she's on the run for murder - an act she still feels guilty for even after two years - but still finds a bit of peace when she stands on the beach. I wonder if the man beside her knows about these nightmares as he seems to sleep so soundly after what they've been through (whatever that might be). I may be getting ahead of myself here to say that it may possibly be a cause of future conflict. The fact that you've written a sequel alone means that their story isn't really over.

Your description is so vivid, I can picture myself there. It's a nice blend of the concrete surroundings and Rose's thoughts.

I'm rather keen to see where this goes. It also means I have to go finish the prequel as well.

Author's Response: Thank you, Lia!

This style was a little out of my comfort zone, and the rest of the story will slip into my more "normal" voice. But I did want to try and show exactly what you said -- a disconnect between the quiet beauty of where Rose is and the darkness in her mind. In a way, contradiction is sort of the theme of this story. Rose will be forced to choose between things that are easy but unfulfilling, and things that are hard but make her happy.

Thank you so much for the lovely review. I'm really happy we got matched up for the swap!
