Plot Twist…

Poor Nanci. Poor, poor Nanci. She’s a mess, people. At the end of September her husband left her and now she’s picking up the pieces.

I’d been toying around with the side character, Lisa’s, relationship for a while. No huge story line, just small teasers here and there. She and her business-travelling hubby have had issues and are seeing a marriage counselor. But Nanci’s marital woes seemed to come from thin air.

I did this intentionally – partly for the surprise factor, and partly because Nanci is meant to be a proud person, afraid of showing her vulnerabilities. So with her, bad news is dealt with at the last second.

It also shows a side of Jill that’s unique …her judgmental side. Not the everyday domestic variety, but a holier-than-thou attitude with her friends. Usually she’s the vulnerable, indecisive one in the crowd. Now she’s starting to feel a little superior when it comes to doling out relationship advice. Thankfully, her friends keep her in check:
