I wanted to read the story because it took place in an area I'm familiar with. But I couldn't get into the writing and had to suspend my disbelief of someone graduating the College of William and Mary with a 4.0 GPA, which is possible, but extremely difficult. Also, I don't think the college has a pre-law degree, at least they didn't when I went there.
It just seemed too cookie-cutter for me for the first chapter. Also, living in Wakefield but commuting to Newport News for a job in retail isn't very economical or realistic. Those small things kind of turned me off the story.
