The Fair and Foul by Allie Potts, a review.

What an unexpected surprise and a great way to start my day. Of course, now I have to work doubly hard on the next one.

This is a sci/fi book with a bit of romance thrown in. It follows the adventures of a scientist Juliane in the near future as she works for a cutting edge technology company. She and her fellow scientists come up with some amazing advancements, that will benefit mankind. As you would expect things don’t go to plan and not every one’s motives are pure.

      I hope you do too (well I mostly do – there is a small part of me that always worries that someone will read it, not like something I wrote, and never want to talk with me again), but I am pretty impressed that you are able read as much as you do now too.
