Review - A Political Affair


A Political Affair by Mary Whitney


Blurb from Goodreads:


A Political Affair isn't Fifty Shades of Red, White, and Blue, but it is a love story with spice and political intrigue. Stephen McEvoy never expected to fill his father’s U.S. Senate seat at such a young age—or to fight to keep it. When clever Anne Norwood interns in his office, Stephen dismisses her as another pretty face—until her independent streak catches his attention. They’re both too smart to fall for one another, yet they do. During a tough election, their relationship is an impossible political gamble. Campaigns—like love—are either won or lost.



My Review:


This is the first book in a long time that I stayed up all night reading once I started it! I loved it! It is the perfect antidote for the end of election season.

Anne is an intern in Senator Stephen McAvoy's office and, from her first day in the office, there is an unmistakable pull between them. Of course, a relationship between them would be taboo and so a friendship begins. However, it isn't too long before their friendship turns romantic. I loved their courtship and growing relationship -- it was very romantic and my heartstrings pulled for them having to keep it secret.



I loved the interplay between the inside workings of Washington versus the real need to have a relationship that was not defined by those trappings. All the characters were well developed and extremely well written.



I hate to give away the ending but my favorite part was definitely the elopement! It was so magical and I loved all the reactions to it.



A Political Affair is a well written, political romance!

Review: History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

History of Wolves by Emily Fridlund

Blurb from Goodreads:
Linda has an idiosyncratic home life: her parents live in abandoned commune cabins in northern Minnesota and are hanging on to the last vestiges of a faded counter-culture world. The kids at school call her 'Freak', or 'Commie'. She is an outsider in all things. Her understanding of the world comes from her observations at school, where her teacher is accused of possessing child pornography, and from watching the seemingly ordinary life of a family she babysits for. Yet while the accusation against the teacher is perhaps more innocent than it seemed at first, the ordinary family turns out to be more complicated. As Linda insinuates her way into the family's orbit, she realises they are hiding something. If she tells the truth, she will lose the normal family life she is beginning to enjoy with them; but if she doesn't, their son may die. Superbly-paced and beautifully written, HISTORY OF WOLVES is an extrao…
