Book Review: A Primary Decision, A Worthington Destiny, Book 3 by Dr. Kevin Leman & Jeff Nesbit + Giveaway


Title: A Primary Decision
Series: A Worthington Destiny, Book 3
Author:   Dr. Kevin Leman & Jeff Nesbit
Publisher:  Revell
Release Date:  October 18, 2016
Genre: Political Suspense




The road to power and position is fraught with perils, even for a Worthington. But Sarah does not intend to lose.

Sarah Worthington never expected to become the US attorney general--at least not this early in her career. Plunged into the vicious vetting process, with all sides digging for secrets in her family closet, she steels herself for the path forward. Nothing will deter her from making her mark on the world in the biggest way possible--even if that means prosecuting the current president of the United States. 

Yet powerful forces conspire behind the scenes to take the Worthington family down, and the president orders her to close the investigation. Will she comply? Or turn the tables to pursue her ultimate dream--the US presidency? 




A Primary Decision by Dr. Kevin Leman and Jeff Nesbit is a political suspense drama that will open your eyes to some political strategem innuendos that can be quite interesting, if you are very new to this type of drama.  This story is the final book in A Worthington Destiny series, and though it can be read as a stand-alone, I think it would be much better understood and appreciated if read the first two books, and in order.  Despite not having read the first two, I still find A Primary Decision intriguing. The family dynamics are a strong attribute. The complex nature of family secrets and political drama that ensues for Sarah, our main character does take you on an inner look to the political and social circles for those that strive for political success, be it for the right or the wrong reasons.  Again, this is a work of fiction, which includes certain stereotypes of the political scene and of the recent headlines pertaining to the election. However, it's entertaining and does have a certain drive that compels you to read forward.

  5. I find myself enjoying political suspense more than I use to. It is interesting to read about the lives of political figures and the intrigue they face . The book may be fiction but I find in some of the books, they are relatable to today's' headlines.

  10. I haven't read many political suspense books, but I really love that type of TV show. I think I would like the books if they didn't have too many characters to keep up with.

  11. I'm not a fan of suspense, but my sister is. We formed our own little book club. So reading this book would be reading her genre.
