  1. If one of those guys is the love interest, he's looking way too old for her.

    4. No, but he's her uncle so that would be a bit ick if she fell in love with him. If I were her, I'd go for the dark and lovely man to the right.

  3. Both of those sound like they'll be pretty good.

  4. These both look good.. although "novel within a novel" concerns me. Hopefully it isn't another confusing plot.

    1. I've started watching Luminaries, and they have the most confusing time lines.
