The Candidate by Lis Weihl and Sebastian Stuart is book two in the Newsmakers Series. The story was fast-paced and intriguing. I must admit, I wasn’t a huge fan of the first book in the series and was apprehensive about reading the second but it was very well done and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The present tense writing is a little strange for me and at times, distracting, but I found the story to be compelling and interesting.
Erica Sparks is a brave woman unwilling to go down without a fight. She’s determined to figure out what makes the presidential candidate so strange. Digging deeper into the man’s past, Erica finds herself entangled in Ancient Chinese brainwashing techniques and powers that stretch around the globe.
The Candidate is a fascinating read and I would absolutely recommend it. I received this book from the Fiction Guild and Thomas Nelson Publishers and have provided my honest opinion of the book here.
