Picked up on a whim at the library. Kind of a political mystery but not at all compelling. Wealthy family w/highest morals fights for their political lives. Bad guys lose. -- I did finish the whole book, so worth a couple of stars. ( )

A Primary Decision by Dr. Kevin Leman and Jeff Nesbit is a political suspense drama that will open your eyes to some political strategem innuendos that can be quite interesting, if you are very new to this type of drama. This story is the final book in A Worthington Destiny series, and though it can be read as a stand-alone, I think it would be much better understood and appreciated if read the first two books, and in order. Despite not having read the first two, I still find A Primary Decision intriguing. The family dynamics are a strong attribute. The complex nature of family secrets and political drama that ensues for Sarah, our main character does take you on an inner look to the political and social circles for those that strive for political success, be it for the right or the wrong reasons. Again, this is a work of fiction, which includes certain stereotypes of the political scene and of the recent headlines pertaining to the election. However, it's entertaining and does have a certain drive that compels you to read forward.

Not sure how I missed that A Primary Decision is the concluding book in a 3-part series by Kevin Leman and Jeff Nesbit. I will blame it on brain fog from the very busy Christmas season that my family had. While it wasn’t difficult to get into this novel, there did seem to be some missing pieces to the story lines and character development. I am sure those things were adequately covered in books 1 sand 2, A Perfect Ambition and A Powerful Secret. I’ll have to go back and read those!

A Primary Decision focuses on the youngest sibling in the Worthington family. Sarah is a highly dedicated prosecutor, and as the novel opens, she is being vetted for the Attorney General position. Her family is known for its philanthropy and business acumen, but there are lots of secrets too that may bring Sarah and her powerful family down.

Kevin Leman is well-known for his birth order and family dynamics books. Those are the foundation to A Primary Decision. Paired with Jeff Nesbit’s political expertise, this book is a great view into personal dynamics, as well as the political machinations at the highest government levels. There is a bit of tension and suspense surrounding the revelations of the family secrets, and the political power struggles seem all too real. If you are ready for some more political drama, I recommend A Primary Decision. Just be sure to read books 1 and 2 of the series first. You don’t want to miss any of the intrigue and drama.

Recommended.

Audience: adults.

Title: A Primary Decision (The Worthington Destiny #3)
Author: Dr. Keven Leman & Jeff Nesbit
Pages: 343
Year: 2016
Publisher: Revell
My rating is 4 out of 5 stars.
This third and final book in the series focuses on Sarah Worthington, although big brothers Will and Sean are definitely a part of her story. Out of the blue, Sarah is nominated by the President of the United States for the position of Attorney General. Sarah accepts the nomination and begins the vetting process. She hopes the pictures of her brother, Sean with the Polar Bear Bomber don’t make it into the hands of the press. The rest of her family is keeping another secret from her as well as everyone else and likewise doesn’t want the media to find out about it. Sarah continues to dig up facts and investigate the Polar Bear Bombing case even though the police have put the case to bed. Sarah knows there is more going on beneath the surface. Her friends Darcy and Jon continue to help her. If she is elected Attorney General, she must give up her investigation.
She is elected, but shortly thereafter proof of the involvement in the bombing case of a high level official at her brother’s company as well as a close confidant of the President of the United States is discovered. Sarah resigns her position as Attorney General, but surprises everyone with her announcement that she is throwing her hat in the ring to run for President of the United States. With secrets still hidden and family members deciding how to come to terms with an event in the past, can Sarah’s bid for the highest office in the land be successful or will secrets from the past come to light and ruin her chance?
If you like political intrigue, drama and suspense, then this is a series you won’t want to miss. The three books should be read in order: A Perfect Ambition, A Powerful Secret, and then A Primary Decision. The juggling act and stress each sibling had to experience in each of the three books was impressive. The amount of pressure they each experienced was almost tangible and I caught myself wondering how I would handle the various situations each one encountered. One aspect I would have liked to have seen more of was the faith in God to have played a larger role in the books. I did enjoy these entertaining books and look forward to more from this author team in the future.

This is the third book in the Worthington Destiny series and it will keep you reading. I found myself continuing to read to find out what would happen next as Sarah Worthington finds herself a US attorney general and plunging into the job in a big way. She keeps on pursuing what she believes in no matter what the cost. This is a real page turner and a great conclusion to the series.
I received a free copy of the book, the review is my own. ( )
