Amazon Editorial Review
Dina McDermott is on top of the world. Attractive and independent at thirty, she runs her own business, funded by a generous inheritance. But an explosive chain of events will soon be set into motion—and her perfect life will spin out of control.
A journalist with a fearless instinct, Simon Keller believes he’s struck gold when he unearths an unsettling story about former president Graham Hayward, one that started with a secret affair and ended in tragedy. The trail leads Simon to Dina McDermott’s front door—and threatens to expose a parentage that would rock the political world. Shaken to her core by a shattering truth, Dina is suddenly thrust into the crosshairs of a cold-blooded killer—and on the run of her life.

I enjoyed this mystery/romance story. With all the affairs going on in Washington, this story could have been plucked from the news of the day. A reporter with good character and instinct, weaves through the people connected to the crime and to the former President of the U.S. With a dangerous chain of events, caused by his investigating the life of the former President, his family and his mistress's hit and run death. The story takes some surprising and some not so surprising twists and turns. The illegitimate daughter of the former President, is shocked with the news of her birth mother and her father when she is 30 years old by the women who loved and raised her and who she called Mother all these years. I liked the ending..........................you will too.
This book is now reserved.

love2cook said I should read this book so she can put it in a upcoming bookbox. So I did. I don't know whether this was a romance or mystery, it had a little of both. All in all not a bad read. Returning it to love2cook.

This book looks rather intriguing, so it will go on Mt. TBR for now. I confess, though, that half the attraction for this was the wild release potential of it here in DC -- probably near the White House. So if I don't get to it in a reasonable length of time, I will set it free here in the Nation's Capitol.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:
After work I will headed to the National Christmas Tree on the Ellipse (known as the President's Back Yard). Since my house is currently overflowing with books, I need to release some and this seemed like a good one to set free in this location.
This counts as a release for the D is for December Release Challenge.
