Once you begin reading, you will not be able to put this book down until you have read the final line.
Audrey Ives-smith
The author also adeptly balances the murder mystery component with love interests, work-place challenges, gender issues, and ethnic/race topics.

The author's description of Jasmine's experiences with this issue is very clear and showed skill in narrating such a personal story.

This story cut to my heart, mind and gut, opening my eyes to the sleaziness of Washington and the cold calculations of its basest inhabitants. The characters are too real to be fiction. The sexual swagger of congressmen who populate this novel is seen every day on the nightly news.
What is not seen on TV or the news pages is a new kind of racial hatred and resentment laid bare by the author: U.S. Black vs. International Black. These immigrants--whether from the Carribean or Africa--are shunned by the Black Caucus and resented for their academic success and jobs they land.
All this, and murder and sex too. It's a quick and intense read that won't soon be forgotten.

This book was definitely hard to put down! I guarantee you will enjoy the intrique and murder mystery elements, but you will also gain authentic insight into racial tensions between native black Americans and black immigrants.

I was captivated by this book - read it in two seatings because i had trouble putting it down.
I usually dont read fiction but I know the author from her time on Capitol Hill and thought I would check it out.
Amazing that this is her first book -very well written with several twists and turns - hope she keeps writing and hope every one on Capitol Hill and beyond will read.

Winsome has created a great story plot that slowly shares a fictious story with a focus on reality for women in politics or women focused on success. She attacks issues most women refrain from speaking about. True or false the information provided leaves a question as to the degree of disrepect international females endure in our nation. Not to mention what we American professional women not just minorities endure within a society where men often seem to take liberties with young struggling focused or intelligient women trying to grow professionally. Bravo Ms. Packard I loved the slow and quick pace of the book! Great ending and look forward to the next book! :) You are inspiring others to rethink their actions, while understanding self-dicipline.

The book weaves drama, suspense, and a realistic personal story into a coherent plot. Jasmine, the main character in the book, is an immigrant from a simpler economic background. Like many immigrants, she has a drive to succeed by education and hard work. However, along the way, she was exposed to real-world socio-cultural issues in the United States that her background did not prepare her for. One of the problems Jasmine faced is the conflict between black immigrants and African Americans--something that many may not be aware of. The author's description of Jasmine's experiences with this issue is very clear and showed skill in narrating such a personal story. The book is also a story of love and betrayal in the tough political city of Washington DC narrated in first voice in such a way that readers cannot help but be moved.

Written like a pro - clever twist of the plot, good psychological background for the feelings and actions of the characters, attention to details which gives it a realistic feeling! Plus deep insights about life on the Hill, a little action and sex - a winning combination.
