Susan Elizabeth Phillips - First Lady



Publisher: Avon
ISBN: 978-0380808076
 
My rating: 4/5

How does the most famous woman in the world hide in plain sight? The beautiful young widow of the President of the United States thought she was free of the White House, but circumstances have forced her back into the role of First Lady. Not for long, however, because she’s made up her mind to escape—if only for a few days—so she can live the life of an ordinary person. All she needs is the perfect disguise . . . and she’s just found it. While an entire nation searches for her, the First Lady is in the last place anybody would think to look—in the company of a seductive stranger with secrets of his own. (susanephillips.com)
 
 
My thoughts

If you like Susan Elizabeth Phillip's books, you will like this one as well. It more or less follows the same recipe!

Nealy Case has just lost her husband, but not her role as First Lady - and she is suffocating under the burden of public life.  So she "breaks out" ... and ends up with Mat Jorik and his two daughters, who are on a road trip to Iowa to meet the girls' grandmother.

As far fetched as it is, it's a very entertaining story. I have to admit, I enjoyed the way Nealy "sees" the little things and appreciates things we take for granted. And Mat is the perfect hero!

The book is written in true SEP style - with wit, humour and a lot of love!

What I didn't like was the ending. Nealy didn't seem to be Nealy or the First Lady, but someone to fit into the story to get a few more pages added.
