The Candidate by Lis Wiehl with Sebastian Stuart

Goodreads | Amazon
How far would a candidate go to become President of the United States?

In covering the presidential election campaign, star newsmaker Erica Sparks notices that favored candidate Senator Mike Ortiz seems dependent on his wife to an unnatural degree. Celeste Ortiz is a brilliant and glamorous billionaire who—along with her best friend and confidant Lily Lau—has engineered her husband’s meteoric rise. The White House is within their reach. But the more Erica investigates the Ortizes’ strange relationship, the more intrigued she becomes.

Erica begins an investigation. But everyone material to her probe ends up dead. With each death, her foreboding grows. Is she next? And can she find out in time if the country’s beloved candidate is what he seems...or a threat to national security?

Once again, readers find Erica Sparks ambitiously investigating to uncover dangerous and elusive truth. As the plot of The Candidate unfolds, Erica attempts to unravel the deceit, scheming, and manipulation surrounding a presidential candidate and encounters quite a bit more danger and peril than she expected. Readers of fiction who enjoy peeking behind the scenes of politics and the media should really take the time to read this second Newsmakers novel from Lis Wiehl - it’s an exciting and intriguing (though slightly far-fetched at times) read, and I really enjoyed it.

Thanks to BookLook Bloggers, I received a copy of The Candidate and the opportunity to honestly review it. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
