I typically read action adventure books. So this story started out rather slow for me. However the characters are so well developed and the story so intriguing I'm now anxious for the second volume.
It would be an overall 5 star, but the book takes about an hour to engage the reader. Having said that it is worth enduring the slow start. The performer is excellent, the characters well developed and the interwoven stories are engaging. I am moving on to Book 2 in the series, and I'm glad of it.
I enjoyed part 1 of the Clinton Chronicles. Rarely do you find as many likeable characters who are flawed, yet the main character is without fault, except for a very foolish decision at the conclusion of the book. It's almost out of character. And that's why I didn't give the book 5 stars. It seems to be a ploy to make one want to read part 2. And guess what? It worked!
Typical melodrama. Well written. Be aware this is the beginning of the story. If you want to know how it ends, you will need to read the next novel in the series. I don't care what happens.
