Review:Roots in Water says:
Hello there!

Uh-oh- do I sense I bit of irony? Or foreshadowing? I have a sense that Rose's case will eventually link up with her dad's... Which means that Rose will be in a lot of danger and hopefully won't have to worry about rent money for a long time (that's how happy endings work, right? They brush away all of the problems the characters had at the beginning of the story. :P )

I find it funny that their landlady is threatening to call their parents, along with other things. You'd think that that wouldn't even cross her mind (after all, both Rose and Scorpius are adults) but I guess when your parents are famous...

I quite agree with Hermione's attempt to get that law removed from use. The idea that a human can be used as collateral for another human... That sounds like something the mafia would do, instead of legal law enforcement. I really do hope that Rose finds the man, not only so that she can finally pay her rent but also so that this woman won't have to suffer on her husband's behalf.

I really wonder how Rose is going to find this guy. I mean, she doesn't really have any leads and she's definitely on a time crunch... But I suppose that she has more tricks up her sleeve, from previous experiences as a Bounty Hunter.

All in all, I think that you did a great job with this chapter. It was just as interesting as the first and I look forward to reading the next one! :D

Author's Response: Ah, I try not to comment in early-chapter reviews about the main mystery plots, so I'll just wink at you about the foreshadowing ;) Rose never gets to brush away all her problems, partly because she's rather irresponsible at heart.

Oh, Mrs. Kochel worked out early on what motivates Rose. Calling her mother is definitely in the top three. And Rose really is a terrible tenant. She's almost always late with the rent, after all.

That law is based on a real law from UK history. Horrible. It definitely had the effect of targeting low-income women, whose husbands got in trouble and had to use their wives as collateral. It really is barbaric, to use a Hermione-ism. She definitely wouldn't let that stand once she found out about it.

Rose has very few tricks, actually. She's not a great bounty hunter. lol... She does know more than she thinks she does, but she's a small fish in the bounty hunter world, after all.

Thank you so much! I'm glad you're enjoying the story so far!
