Victoria,

You’ve thought this through for sure and I love your decision to go with Deep POV for these characters. In the case of your story, I like how you are utilizing Deep POV and being in such limited perspectives as a pro to the mystery reveal. Sounds like you’ll really take readers for a ride.

 

And I was happy when I read this:

Is your narrator (POV character) reliable or unreliable? Reliable, though I can see how important Deep POV would be almost essential if you had an unreliable narrator.

It’s true that unreliable characters work SO well in deep pov because they can really trick the readers. The key is that the unreliable narrator believes their reality, even if it’s not all happening the way they think it is. I.e. Girl on the Train.
