Booklist Review

During a not-so-innocent birthday party at Lighthouse Point, Governor Justin Lambert's beach house, a young woman dies. There were drugs at this private party, not to mention the affair going on between the governor and one of his former campaign workers, Rachel Warshowsky. A cover-up seems to be in order, and the governor and his aides whip one up to suit. Ten years later, Rachel threatens to reveal what really happened if Lambert insists on running for president. She relives their relationship while preparing to meet with him shortly after his wife tells her what she's known all along about his philandering past. Was Lambert also involved with the woman who died that weekend? An entertaining tale of people and power that, despite a lot of tension, ends happily. --Cynthia Ogorek

Publisher's Weekly Review

Any parallels to Chappaquiddick are surely deliberate in this intriguing novel of political ambition, secrets and lies. Justin Lambert's bid for the presidency 10 years after the tragedy at Lighthouse Point prompts Rachel Warshowsky and her three friends--once adoring volunteers in Lambert's gubernatorial campaign--to take action. The four women, along with Lambert's two aides, were involved in the accident that resulted in the death of another volunteer, asthmatic Lucia, and scarred Lambert's career and killed (or injured)...? isn't there a victim? . However, his powerful family has decided that enough time has passed to safely set the wheels in motion to secure the ultimate prize in American politics. In a narrative that cleverly conceals as it reveals, Rachel spurs her friends to make decisions that render all of them vulnerable. This contemporary tale by the author of Girls Rules is told with style and dispatch. (Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
