Deb at asks"All other things being equal (good writing, enthralling story, etc), which would you rather read—something serious, angsty, and tragic? Or something light, fluffy, and fun? Or a blend of both? (Since, really, isn’t that how real life works?)"

Since the question describes opposite ends of the spectrum, I  probably land somewhere along the continuum depending on my mood. Fluffy is not something I enjoy, though I relish wit and humor. I am not particularly drawn to angst and tragedy as a way to relax, though serious can be entertaining and thought-provoking. So with all other things being equal, I would most enjoy a blend and avoid the extremes.

Crime of Privilege by Walter Walker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Crime of PrivilegeThink of a powerful New England family. Now think of being swallowed into their vortex of unbridled wealth,influence, privilege, promiscuity, ambition, hubris, and self-indulgence. What if you are a potential threat to them? How would being in their cross-hairs affect your daily life, your career, your family? CRIME of PRIVILEGE provides an unnerving view of how wealth, influence, privilege, promiscuity, ambition, hubris, and self-indulgence interweave to protect a name and legacy. The trials of protagonist George Becket, Assistant District Attorney, carry the reader through a murky labyrinth that lulls only when the author needlessly pontificates.CRIME of PRIVILEGE was a page-turner for this reader.

Hi Pooch!
Hmmmm. I love original and specific description in my fiction. I don't really care about the plot outcomes as much as I want meaty character development.
