Enjoyable story with interesting twists and turns. Thank you, Readers.

a soap opera!

Took a few chapters to get intrigued by the story. Some readers were excellent. One problem with multiple readers is they pronounce the names of some of the characters differently, and you end up wondering, “Who?” The lawyer’s was one of those names that had several different pronunciations.
