What Matters Most


If you like politics, suspense, and a dose of some scandal, this book will be a great fit for you.  The whole thing read like an episode of the TV show Scandal, which I’m hooked on, except it was far more appropriate and less actually scandalous than Scandal tends to be.  It didn’t make me feel like I was doing something wrong like sometimes Scandal does….. but that’s a song for another time.

Kellie Coates Gilbert delivers a page-turner that had me unwilling as well as unable to stop reading from cover to cover because I just needed to know what happened next.  Case in point, I didn’t need to have this book finished and reviewed until the end of September…. and it’s August 10th.  I read it in like 2 days.  It was great.

Leta Breckenridge thinks she’s finally caught a break from the pressures of working 2 jobs that don’t pay enough to cover her expenses plus the long-term care costs of supporting her mother who suffers from dementia.  She finds a high-paying job at an Austin, Texas PR firm, and it seems like it’s too good to be true!  She can’t believe her good fortune.  “But her seemingly ideal job turns into a nightmare when she learns the firm is a front for a political opposition organization–and that the research she’s been collecting will be used against Nathan Emerson, the handsome senator she’s swiftly falling in love with.”

With a story line that clips along at an excellent pace, protagonists with integrity and passion, and antagonists that will boil your blood, Kellie Coates Gilbert has delivered one punch of a political suspense romance — which may be my new favourite genre.  I highly recommend you check it out for yourself, and if you do, please let me know what you thought!  Did you love it as much as I did?
