Chapter Two of “Mental (2018)” in its Entirety, Not a Teaser!

So, this is your first taste of my main character, Eve Stuart, and what she sees at the beginning of the novel as her main issues (to be amended later on)!

I hope you enjoyed reading about the complicated mess that Eve is! By the end of this tale, she’s as healthy as a green smoothie, I promise!

Stay tuned for more chapter pics like this one!

Cheers!
