Nice twists and turns in this political thriller. It was certainly as good as some of the big names in this genre. The lesbian romance is also well written and I appreciated the complexities of the relationship.
I like a good ruthless main character and hope the author writes more using her. Personally, I would have liked a bit more action however, I enjoyed the book. I think most people will enjoy it and even if you may have read it elsewhere I hope you consider buying a copy to support the author.

What an awesome second book, the characters are well written, the plot moves with twists and turns and keeps you guessing and on the edge of your chair. You can't wait to read the finish, then are saddened that the story is completed. Ann, please keep writing as it would be a shame not to share your great story telling talents from us your fans. I look forward to your next book with much anticipation.

Ann McMan has crafted another classic. Kept me guessing and on the edge of my seat. A political thriller about the manufacturing of a candidate and the characters that revolve around them. The plot ties in nicely with the political environment that is currently heating up. Makes you wonder about the players behind the recent candidates... The two main characters are strong, independent women with entirely different upbringings. Classic Yin Yang that keeps you rooting for them to get together despite the obstacles that are thrown at them at every turn. As usual with one of Ann's novels we also learn a little bit more about her knowledge as a red and white sommelier. I'm creating a fine wine list. Not to mention, I got one of the most interesting recipes that I've ever made from this novel. I learn so much from her stories. Can't wait for the sequel. All I can say is MORE!!!!!!!!

This was an excellent second novel from Ann McMan full of political intrigue and a variety of plot twists that keeps the reader guessing. Each of the characters have their own complexities with varying degrees of "badness" making it difficult to figure out who the good guys are in the story.

There were several times when I thought I had a handle on who the "bad guy" was and then there would be a new twist that would point me in another direction. There were also several characters I would like to see again, obviously I'd like to know what happens with Evan Reed and Julia Donne, but I'd also like to see Maya/Margo to learn more about her and what exactly is she involved in.

I will definitely be keeping an eye out for any other novels by Ann McMan.

This was a decent book. It had a nice touch of mystery and intrigue to keep my attention. It was a pleasant surprise. She avoided stereotyping - the hero to the rescue was not the 6ft strapping butch-thank you for that. A hero who uses her brain, and whose methods are not squeaky clean.
The 'fade to black' sex scenes were a little silly and used too often. Now granted her scenes sure as hell beats the gynocologist exams that many writers use in their sex scenes, but some middle point would be nice.
A sequel would be nice.
The Margo really was interesting, I'd like to read more of her.

I chose this book because of the author. Her previous "Jericho" and "Aftermath" were so wonderful, I will read anything she writes! She makes the people real; there are characters you would love to meet and be friends with.
I would recommend this book to anyone but an anti-gay bigot. They would refuse to like it, much less read it. But that's just my opinion.

Good Story and one you would not think about. Takes time to get moving but when it does it's done well.
Ann McMan seems to write what she knows and she does a wonderful job of it.

Kudo's to Ann!

Good Read....

Evan Reed is in the dust busting business. She is paid by political campaigns to dish the dirt on candidates running for election.

Evan is a lesbian, she has a fourteen year old daughter, Stevie. A result of an experimental encounter with Stevie's father, Dan. A man still in both their lives.
Evan is hired to investigate Andy Townsend, the former governor of Delaware, who could well become the next President of the USA. As Evan gets deeper into her investigation, she uncovers far more than she bargained for, including a murder.

When Evan meets Andy Townsend's reclusive wife, Julia Donne, She discovers Julia is also hiding her own pile of dust.

Things become even more complicated when Evan and Julia discover they have a mutual attraction for each other. Evan tries to fight it off, after all, Julia is straight, isn't she? Evan's common sense is screaming no, don't get involved. But her heart is telling her something different. Will Evan take notice of her head or her heart?

A truly wonderful, well written, second book. Full of suspense, mystery, intrigue and of course romance, of which the true path never runs smoothly. There are so many ups and downs and twists and turns in this book, it was hard to say if I was on a roller coaster or a carousel, or both at the same time.

I simply couldn't put this book down, the mystery and intrigue kept me guessing right through. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough and at the end, I wanted more. I would love to see what happens to Evan and Julia next.

I enjoyed the touch of humor throughout, although the story itself was seriously written. It was just right to lighten things up a bit.

The story is set in both the USA and travels across the Atlantic to the UK and back again. The settings are so descriptive, I felt a part of the story. It was like looking in from the side lines.

I loved all the characters, each played their parts to perfection, even the ones you love to dislike.

I am greatly looking forward to more soon from Ann McMan. A refreshing new voice in lesbian fiction.
