This is the authors second story, the first being Twice in a Lifetime.
Megan McCoy is living a lie. She is wife to Ben McCoy, who is in the running to become Vice President of the USA. Over the years she has perfected the image others see, but behind closed doors it is a totally different story.
Forced into doing an interview with reporter James Emerson, she doesn't realise that he has an ulterior motive for wanting to interview her husband. He is delving deep to try and get information, but what he finds is so much more than he had hoped for.
Matters very quickly get out of hand as Megan finds herself embroiled in something she could not have foreseen. Her loyalties are severely tested. When push comes to shove will she stick to her guns, or will someone else's wishes come before hers?
The ending, for me, is perfect. Everything which Megan goes through has to happen in order for her to realise what she wants to achieve. Along the way feelings are hurt, lies are told, but the truth always comes out. Doesn't it?
I loved this book because both Megan and James are strong characters who have a very volatile time whenever they meet. I also love it because I'm in it! Well, a character is named after me!
This author has a great career ahead of her and I will be standing applauding her all the way. A definite recommended read from me.

Loved this book. Was the second book I read of this author, and both have been brilliant. Loved the premise of the story (very different story wise and character wise to her first) and overall it was a real page turner...couldn't put it down. If you want a fantastic read, with great characters and an unpredictable ending, this book's for you! Can't wait to read her next book.

Couldn't put it down and just didn't want to. Loved the multi-dimensional plot, the constant build in suspense, and complex characters that I believe people will really relate to in this today's society. Second of the author's books I have read and I am recommending her to everyone. Very interesting contrasting themes throughout.

This is an engaging story of political intrigue, personal betrayal and the triumph of love. The central character, Megan, is very well-crafted and I enjoyed seeing her develop as the story progressed. Some really moving touches, but also humorous. I read it mostly in one sitting. I hadn't read Kierney's first novel, but I will now.
