It's a toss up. Start with the crime? Start with the characters? It's a romantic suspense story, but I'm hoping it is more along the lines of a crime solving/police procedural series where the romance evolves over a three book arc. But each book will focus on a specific crime.
Sometimes I get totally confused by definitions and trying to fit my writing in a box. It's a bit like trying to sort out the difference between single title and mainstream. Is ST 'romance' and mainstream 'not'?
Not in my reading experience.
On the home front I spent the day in the garden (it has almost defrosted) and then DH and I tried to fix the TV/DVD player in the playroom. The DVD cradle is stuck open. We managed to get the casing apart, pried out an unknown DVD disc, eventually put it back together again, but still the stupid thing won't work. Talk about frustration and taming the desire to throw something through a window.
My fiery Celtic nature and DH's viking roots were showing ;)
