1. Would you have been as reluctant as Bella was to accept the gift of a new car, even one as extravagant as the Mercedes, from someone like Edward?
I would have been reluctant to accept that car. I was actually really irritated for Bella in this chapter. This is an area (I hate to say it.) where Jacob has always understood her better. It would have been so much nicer for Bella if the Cullen's had just fixed up her truck. (Plus the trucks a Chevy...Buy American!) Still, sigh I know Edward meant well and was just being his overly worried self.
2. Did you feel Charlie was justified in putting up the various posters of Jacob around town or should he have left that up to Billy? Remember, even as the police chief, Charlie doesn't have jurisdiction over the reservation.
Yes, Jacob is like family to Charlie.
3. What were your thoughts about the way Charlie reacted to the engagement? About how Renee reacted?
Oh, Charlie's reaction was awesome. The gun thing was too funny. Renee surprised me a little but I thought it was nice. I was happy to see her so involved with the wedding plans. I love SM but I think she kind of dropped the ball on Renee's storyline at the end of the book.
4. Were you nervous for the wedding at the end of this chapter? Did you think Jacob would show up?
I was excited for the wedding. Hum, I think I did expect Jacob.
But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure and full of quiet gentleness. Then it is peace-loving and courteous. It allows discussion and is willing to yield to others; it is full of mercy and good deeds. James 3:17
