    "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."

    "The book is incredibly touching and at times, very depressing. The Graduation of Jake Moon gave me great insight into Alzheimer's as well. It's something I never have to go through like in the book. "

    "This one was a rough read for me. I have no doubt of the quality of the writing and the Pulitzer Prize given to this book would back me up on that, but the topic at hand didn't sit quite right with me. It's a topic that interests me a bit but I didn't feel like this book hit on the topics the same way I would have hoped. All that being said, it was worth a single read in my opinion, but it's not something I would ever want to read again."

    "The Harry Potter series is a classic, on so many levels. You truly feel like you're growing up alongside the protagonists, as J.K. Rowlings beautifully simple prose develops into something noticeably darker and more mature. Jim Dale's narration in the audiobooks is an absolute pleasure, so you don't have to set these books down while you're driving or doing chores around the house."

Mikael and Lisbeth are amazing, well developed characters, who I did not want to stop reading about! Trying not to spoil the book, the events that unfold are jaw-dropping. I recommend this for anyone who likes crime novels."
