There are a lot of blended families in this series. The following description may constitute as a spoiler so I put some space...


Olivia, a main character in this series, had three children with her ex-husband, Stan. They divorced following the death of one of the children and now she is married to Jack. Both of the surviving children from Olivia and Stan's marriage are married with children of their own and are also characters in the series. Olivia's new husband, Jack, also has an adult son from his previous marriage. Additionally, Olivia's elderly mother, a widow, has married another widower who also has an adult child who makes an appearance in this book. Olivia and her new step brother don't see eye to eye. Can you say soap opera?

Cool. That is what I was thinking as well but wanted to get your feedback. :)
21757 I have a clarification question…

For the purpose of this task, are you considering the alliteration to derive from the letter only or by the phonetic sound that letter makes?

A couple examples to illustrate my question…

Chelsea Caine – first and last name both start with C but it is a different C sound and arguably not alliterative.

Kresley Cole – first and last name start with different letters but make the same sound so is alliterative, I would think.

I wanted to ask since these authors threw me for a loop as I was scrolling through my list of options. :)
21757 Huh. Who knew? Hehe!

21757 Bingle! That is too funny!

I'm on my phone and unable to access the site at the moment but I'm excited to see what it will choose for me. Fun task!

21757 Do A and B have to be from the same areas or can they be different?
