Claire Collins began telling stories as soon as she learned to talk, and she hasn't stopped telling stories-- or talking--since. After decades of writing in the closet, Claire became one of the very first authors published by Second Wind after she was a semi-finalist in a Romance Writing contest. That little stroke to her ego was enough to make Claire stretch out and seek publication in earnest. Luckily for us, Second Wind grabbed her before another publisher discovered her talent.

A decent enough plot idea with scope for plenty of drama and emotion. The writing was rather prosaic, choosing to 'tell' rather than 'show', and the characters and places generally lacked description. Also, although the story is told from Shannon's point of view, there are lapses where the text describes things she could not possibly know. I also thought there were too many short sentences, which stopped the text flowing naturally, and there were some
spelling/punctuation errors too. It shows a lot of potential, but also needs some work.
