Publisher's Summary

TV reporter Erica Sparks has become a superstar overnight. But is it due to her hard work and talent? Or is she at the center of a spiraling conspiracy?

Erica Sparks is a beautiful and ambitious reporter who has just landed her dream job at Global News Network in New York. And while it was hard to leave Jenny, her cherished eight-year-old daughter, in the custody of her ex-husband, Erica is determined to succeed in the cutthroat world of big-time broadcasting. She can only hope her troubled past won't come back to sabotage her dreams.

Although the wounds from her divorce are still fresh, Erica can't deny the chemistry between her and her new producer, the handsome and empathic Greg Underwood. But a relationship is the last thing she wants right now. On her very first assignment, Erica inadvertently witnesses - and films - a horrific tragedy, scooping all the other networks. Mere weeks later another tragedy strikes - again, right in front of Erica and her cameras. Her career skyrockets overnight, but Erica is troubled. Deeply. This can't just be coincidence. But what is it? Erica will stop at nothing to uncover the truth. But she has to make sure disaster - and her troubled past - don't catch up with her first.

Strains credulity

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No. The characters were all angel or demons, no one in between. And the story was interesting at first but kept getting more and more implausible.

Would you recommend The Newsmakers to your friends? Why or why not?

No, too hard to suspend disbelief.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Maybe, might be better as a movie.

Won't buy any more of Lis Whiel's books

I am so disappointed in The Newsmakers series! Lis Whiel's previous books did not have any foul language or sensual scenes. This first book was full of curse words and sexual innuendos. I've already purchased the second book in the series in Audiobooks, but am wary of listening to it if it's like this first one. I'm also disappointed in Thomas Nelson, a Christian publisher, for publishing a book of this nature.

Riveting! Captivating! Irresistible!

Erika doesn't just accepts what she is told when not one but two disasters happen right in front of her; she goes after the facts no matter the cost!

Which scene was your favorite?

Erika's birthday party for her daughter was over the top and Erika steps in to protect her daughter.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes

Any additional comments?

Nail-biting story

Absolutely fantastic as with all your books. The narrator was fantastic. I hope this is the first in a series? May God bless you with many, many more stories

Narrator Misses the Mark

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The Narrator for this book is terrible. The story is weak to begin with but a great narrator really could have made the book a pleasure to listen to.

Would you ever listen to anything by Lis Wiehl and Sebastian Stuart again?

Possibly

How could the performance have been better?

The performance could have been more professional with better voice inflection.
