CHARACTERS, PLOTTING, DEVELOPMENT:
Jenna Victoria created two vastly different people in Mollie and Sean. You know the saying: “Opposites attract”? Mollie and Sean feel an instant attraction both try to ignore. Mollie’s a strong character; looking for the American dream of security, love, family, and a home. Creating a small town atmosphere with welcoming neighbors, typical small town attitudes of caring, and a variety of personalities, Victoria, crafted wonderful secondary characters who enriched the story line.
