Book Description from the publisher:TV reporter Erica Sparks has become a superstar overnight. Is it due to her hard work and talent, or is she at the center of a spiraling conspiracy?
I have loved Lis Wiehl's previous novel and her latest book she has teamed up with Sebastian Stuart and it is a winner! "The Newsmakers" is hopefully of the first of several novels focusing on reporter Erica Sparks, whom has suddenly risen to fame. Erica overcame a rough childhood and very poor choices that she has made an adult and she has become a celebrity; however it was a result of tragedy and Erica finds herself in trouble and is unsure of whom she can trust.
This is such a great and tense read! Erica is chosen to be a reporter for an up and coming network, and she is being groomed to be the star and face of this network; however her digging into stories and following her instinct does not sit well with some individuals. I love Erica as a main character, she is such a strong person yet is trying to cope with her insecurities and vulnerabilities, making her so human and one that can be empathized with. Erica's struggles and her relationship with Dirk, Jenny and even Greg draw the reader even more into her life. I felt as if I were in New York City and jetting across the US with Erica on stories as the writing is so descriptive. I am anxious to read what Lis writes next.
