Elected by Cathy Travis
Whether you are a Democrat or a Republican, or an Independent, you certainly have had to question what exactly happened here (in this country), on September 11, 2001. Well, and many other things that has been taking place in our government over the last, I'd say, century and currently!
I normally keep politics and my political beliefs away from my reviews, blogs and social networking, (the business side of me) as much as I can. I don't feel it's very appropriate to discuss such matters. (I am a pt bartender, so I go by those old rules of not discussing religion or politics;)
In any case, this is a good story, based on the author's speculation of what would have happened if we would have had a different president during this time period. Cathy Travis is a good writer, and has lots of experience with both writing, and politics. She has been writing since age 11, and has worked on Capitol Hill for 25 years.
This is a page turner, short and sweet and to the point. There is a lot of action, and is an excellent political thriller! I read this in a short amount of time, and this would be one of those books I would take with to the park, or out by the pool.
You can read more about Cathy Travis and her other books here.
Elected is a good what if book, and offers opinions and events that I haven't read yet about this time, so for me, that was an added bonus! I enjoyed how the story took place and how the events and people were similar, but not really.
You can buy this book on Amazon.
She has a nice list of other books she has written, some that I am definitely going to check out! I enjoy her writing, and this was easy to follow, even with so many characters and people being involved in the story.
