Where There's Smoke
by Jodi Picoult
I went to my iPhone to look for something quick and easy to read while waiting for/getting a pedicure. This came up as a free download and being a Picoult fan, I downloaded it without even reading the synopsis.
It turned out to be an short story expanding the past of one of the characters in her latest novel, "Leaving Time." As I am a real fan of Leaving Time and will tell everyone I meet to read it, I was thrilled to have found this short story.
Where There's Smoke is a quick story about Serenity Jones' rise and fall from stardom as a psychic. It fleshes out her character a bit more and explains the beginning of her downfall. The moral of this short story is simply, "be careful of what you wish for."
For Picoult fans and those that have read or plan to read Leaving Time, I wholeheartedly recommend this story.
I give this short story five of five shots.
