The Candidate


How far will a candidate go to become president? Erica Sparks—America’s top-rated cable-news host—is about to find out.
Mike Ortiz is a dynamic war hero favored to win the White House. Standing by his side is his glamorous and adoring wife, Celeste. But something about this seemingly perfect couple troubles Erica. Is Celeste really who she seems? And most importantly, what really happened in that squalid Al-Qaeda prison where Mike Ortiz spent nine months?
But more than the nation’s future is at stake. Erica’s relentless search for the truth puts the life of her preteen daughter Jenny in danger, even as Erica’s own dark past threatens to overtake her. 
In her latest Newsmakers thriller, New York Times bestselling author and Fox News legal analyst Lis Wiehl weaves a taut and chilling story. The Candidate is packed with political intrigue and media manipulation as the lust for power turns deadly indeed.

My Review

If you have never tried this author out, this is the perfect time. This book is book two of the Newsmakers series featuring Erica Sparks. Each book can be read as a stand alone novel. Yet, I can tell you now that this will not be the only book you will read from Ms. Wiehl. I am a big fan of Ms. Wiehl and her books. I can easily read them in one sitting. I have yet to find one I did not enjoy.

This new series is a good one. Erica Sparks' last name really fits her as she is a real "spark". She is a go getting and not afraid of some danger. This book has action, intrigue, and a few surprises. In addition, with this being election year, this is the perfect time to read this book. Hoping that what happens in this book the candidates don't take it this far in real life. I hope that Erica's relationship with her daughter, Jenny does mature more as the books continue. Also, hoping that Erica and Greg can make it work with their relationship as well. The perfect nominee this election session is The Candidate!
