REVIEW for First Daughter

I was lucky enough to get this book directly from INDIGO bookstores for review.

TITLE: First Daugther

AUTHOR: Eric Van Lustbader

GENRE: Thriller

RATING: 4 Stars

For some reason, I like thrillers that have to do with the President of the US - not sure why. Unfortunately, they are not always "thrilling".

This was NOT the case with First Daughter. From the very first moments of the opening chapter, where you just know that its wayyyyy to quiet, I was on the edge of my seat expecting the worse - and getting it.

Van Lustbader writes a thriller the way it should be - the old fashion, sit on the edge of your seat and dread turning the page, but at the same time, you can't wait to do it.In Jack McClure, the author has also found a great hero. Deeply flawed and lacking confidence in himself, at the same time, becoming someone else's hero and protector.

I don't want to give away too much of this story, but suffice it to say that this thriller will keep you breathless. Great, great read.

I read this one last year and LOVED it. Great book. The twist in the prologue surprised me so much that I literally gasped and dropped the book. It was one of the few times that a book has done that to me.

Sounds great, Tina! I'm putting this one on my TBR list.
