#Win The Candidate by Lis Wiehl (US) (65)

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, NewYork 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.

REVIEW:
Intense!
This book would be the perfect candidate for a film adaption. It was so intense, gripping and full of political intrigue that I was keen to read to the end. 
I'm not American, but there is a lot of hoopla surrounding this particular US election. This book couldn't have been read at a more perfect time! 
I can't wait to read more from this series, and the enigmatic Erika to stomp more stories in the stories. She really does have a way of getting the most dangerous stories to come to an end.
If you haven't read the first one, that is ok, you won't miss much. Each book can be read as a stand alone, but I encourage you to go back and read The Newsmakers.

REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

It was so much fun to do! It was super cool to watch the tinsel levitate too! Then we sat to watch the movie.
What a good movie for the whole family! It was filled with action and adventure. Plus the story line was what I appreciated most.
