Breaking the Rules - Kitty Wilson

Previous updates :










Chapter Three is five digital pages of a noodling info dump.


Rosy has fled to the beach, where she thinks about things.


1.  She finds her new neighbor exceedingly attractive, but he has a girlfriend.

2.  Because of some unknown thing that happened when she was 19 with some guy named Josh, she has A Rule that she will not date anyone in the community where she lives.

3.  She has a date that night with some guy she met through Internet dating.


After all this thinking, she walks back to the village and buys a bunch of chocolate.


I have had this book open on my laptop virtually all day.  I have done just about anything to avoid reading it.
