Unwanted Discovery is the first novel in The Unwanted Series starts. It starts with our first main character, Sharon Cooper. She is in her mid 40’s and lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband, Jack, and their two children. Jack is a supportive and old-fashioned protector. He works hard as an industrial mechanic which has allowed Sharon to be a stay-at-home mom. Their daughter, Callie (our second main character), has just graduated from high school and loves photography. Their son, Mark is away at college in his sophomore year.
Sharon and Callie enjoy an unusually close and fun relationship. Although they banter with each other, love and respect always comes first.
Alice Frainey is Sharon’s estranged mother. She lives in the biggest house in her affluent neighborhood.
Roy Jackson is a patrol officer. He is in his mid-twenties.
Rudy Burke is a private investigator that has been in the business for over 40 years.
Pierre is introduced as a minor character, but he becomes more pronounced as each story progresses.
Each successive book takes a closer look at them and their lives. Of course, as in anyone’s life, there are several colorful and supporting characters. Some of these new characters are: Georgia Anderson; Grant and Karen Frainey and their daughters – Arlene, Bonnie and Charlotte; Jack’s parents, Ralph and Cora Cooper, plus many others.
As our books continue, more characters are added, some either fade away while others become more complex. Some changes are pleasant, some turn out to be a relief, and other are just shocking. We’ll refrain from revealing the changes in later books; we wouldn’t dream of giving a spoiler.
