As second in command, Katherine Ann Miles understands the responsibilities of her role as vice president. But when the president of the United States dies from a heart attack only eight months into his term, Katherine feels utterly unprepared to assume the highest office in the land.
Yet the new president has little time to dwell on the battles raging with Congress and within her own marriage: Iran is making pointed, grave threats toward Israel, and she will have to employ all her skills and diplomacy to avert a major military conflict. But just as the crisis heats up, clues emerge, suggesting that her beloved predecessor was assassinated and whoever wanted him dead is out to get her as well - closer than she realizes.

Awful, amateurish political "thriller" about first US woman president. Far fetched story of president who is poisoned, women VP takes over his role (and calls her father a lot on the phone) and then attempts are made on her life so that the Aryan Brotherhood can overthrow the government. Lots of action takes place in a bathroom. I'm not kidding. The breathless narrator recants this absurd tale. No thanks!
Totally unrealistic in some of the portrayals of the workings of the US gov't.
I was considering 3 stars until the Epilogue where the protagonist, the President, laments the ticking of her biological clock and decides she will have a baby with or without a husband.
The narrator was a tad cloying.
My. TBR is large and the accompanying echoes (audible companion books) numerous.
Not without checking reviews
But there were many other scenes that needed strengthening and a bit of research into the workings of the US government.
