Hello! First-time reader, here!

OMG! I LOVED the Stephanie Plum novels! I think I read up to number 14, then gave up, but still! They were so funny!

I really like your writing style. It's very Janet Evanovich, but obviously not the same. Your use of present tense and short, sharp sentences give it a snappy fast-paced feel, which I love. And the way you seamlessly blend the Potterverse lexicon with that of the business of American bail bonding is great!

I really like Rose! I like that she's just an average person, trying to pay the rent, instead of this super-high achiever with issues, like she's usually portrayed. That you're showing a pre-established relationship with Scorpius the painter (which is the best!) is also a new direction! I'm so excited for this!

An excellent opening chapter! Looking forward to reading more!

Author's Response: Those are such good books! I haven't read the latest one, I think I read 18 but I know I haven't read 19. I need to get a hold of a copy of it. I tried to fit the Potterverse and the style of the Plum series together, so I'm glad you think it worked! This story is sort of half in present and half in past tense, because apparently I have a hard time writing first person in past tense. I need to edit it. It was the first time I'd written in first person, that's my excuse. ;)

Thanks! Rose is definitely average, though she's actually very book-smart when she stops being lazy. She's very lazy at heart. I wanted the romance to be back seat in this story so she and Scorpius are already together.

I'm so glad you liked the first chapter, and I hope you enjoy the rest of the story! Thank you so much for reviewing!
