Sequel to Lies Up in Lights. COMPLETE.

On New Year’s Eve of 2016, instead of being at a party with Anthony, her ex-fiancé, Paris watches Kaden die after finding him injured in his London apartment. She’s left with only a few clues — that Chloe has something to do with it, and two white envelopes she’s seen containing threatening notes signed with the name “Trouble”.

As accusations fly, the tabloids slave over finding the truth - whatever it is - and relationships are put to the test, Paris realizes that Trouble isn't stopping with the death of Kaden, and is desperate to cover up his/her identity at whatever cost. But Paris, to her knowledge, is the only person who knows of the existence of Trouble — marking her, unless she can stop Trouble first.

After all, someone who's already murdered once wouldn't be so averse to doing it again.

Ch. 2: ok, Amelia is being a *little* rude considering she's at Kaden's funeral. And should I be feeling a little bad for Kaden? I mean, I sort of think he did want to change.

I think you have a great start to a story here. You seem to know where you're going and how you're getting there. I'm not sure you know your characters very well. It my just be your narration style, but sometimes it seems that your characters aren't themselves, and at other times, you stick to two or three characteristics and labor over them. Make sure character development is slow but steady.

You're a "tell-er" instead of a "show-er". That might work for this piece of writing, but be careful that you don't always flat-out tell us "I was", "she was", "he is", "I am". Instead of saying "I was scared", go instead with "I felt a thin sheen of sweat break out on my palms."

But this is a great start. I certainly hope you can see this through to the end, and that you can polish it to its full potential. You're doing excellent!
