Like a Rainbow
Tagline: Megan was drawn to the man she'd just met in the paint store. It was something about the color of his eyes...
Observations: Nell Musolf is an "old hand" at Woman's World stories and she employs a couple of devices that we see all the time.
1. The eccentric, lovable relative appears often in Woman's World stories. Here it's Aunt Zelda. The relative can have an active part in the story, or as in this one, she's just someone the protagonist thinks about.
2. The eccentric, lovable relative usually has some bit of wisdom that he/she loves to say like "Keep your eyes--and your options--open." This bit of advice always proves to be true.
I liked how the colors ran all through the story. It was a nice motif.
