From Kris P. Kreme, comes a tale with a twist to it, as might be expected, but the twist this time is never fully revealed, remaining just slightly out of the reader’s grasp. The setting is there, a small sleepy town in the mountains, a perfect location for something strange to occur. The town, appropriately named Persuasion, has a new resident doctor, though this isn’t the doc you go to with scrapes or bruises. Doc Newton is a cosmetic doctor.
The characters are all standard town residents, the most unusual before Doc Newton arrives being a woman mayor, but that mayor might be finding her male support rising after a visit to Doc Newton. The main character who we are seeing Doc Newton’s arrival through is young Elise Graham, soon to be graduating senior with a rather strong dislike of her own body, and a brain for journalism. She chooses to report on who this Doc Newton is. However, she uncovers some concerns and then sees just how crazy the women in town are going after Doc Newton opens for business.
The ending will be a surprise, and yet a satisfying result to what might be expected. Will Elise fall under the persuasive charm of Doc Newton? And what does the Newton’s Cradle on the doctor’s desk have to do with everything? Find out as this story injects and implants some original top heavy ideas into the reader.
