A Primary Decision by Dr Kevin Leman and Jeff Nesbit

Back Cover:

The road to power and position is fraught with perils, even for a Worthington. But Sarah does not intend to lose.
Sarah Worthington never expected to become the US attorney general--at least not this early in her career. Plunged into the vicious vetting process, with all sides digging for secrets in her family closet, she steels herself for the path forward. Nothing will deter her from making her mark on the world in the biggest way possible--even if that means prosecuting the current president of the United States.

Yet powerful forces conspire behind the scenes to take the Worthington family down, and the president orders her to close the investigation. Will she comply? Or turn the tables to pursue her ultimate dream--the US presidency?

Review: I have enjoyed the Worthington Destiny trilogy written by the well known author, Dr. Kevin Leman and the former senior communication official of the White House, Jeff Nesbit. Together, these two highly experienced men have put together a series of fascinating novels. The Worthington Destiny books take you into the world of a blue blood American family, the Worthingtons. This incredibly wealthy and powerful family is a force to reckon with, with connections and influence reaching out to a global scale. Each novel takes a look at one of the three Worthington siblings and their respective roles in their family and country.

At the back of each book, the authors express a keen interest in birth order characteristics. It is intriguing to see how they explore first born, middle born, and youngest child personality traits in these rapidly moving, interesting stories.

This series brings the reader into a world of political intrigue that I personally never even dreamed existed. Based on the expertise of the authors and the believability of the stories I would venture to say that what takes place in these books probably does occur in real life. I found it very eye opening. That being said, this is still fiction. And as fiction, I found these books, including the most recent one (A Primary Decision) to be very good reads. I am not generally a fan of political thrillers, but I truly did enjoy the mind games, the plot twists, and the politics of these books.

A Primary Decision focuses in on the youngest of the Worthington siblings, Sarah Worthington. The baby or "princess" of the family, Sarah has always had to fight hard to get respect from her family. While their love has never been in doubt, she struggles to prove herself as a capable and intelligent woman when those around her do their best to shelter her  and protect her.

I would recommend this book as well as the two precursor novels.

Thank-you to Graf Martin Communications and Baker Publishing House for a complimentary copy of this book.
