Goodreads:  The United States is in crisis. Can Samantha Harrison be what the country needs?

Ripped from today’s headlines, PRESIDENTIAL DECLARATIONS is a behind-the-scenes political thriller and an inspiring portrayal of a woman’s rise to the highest office in the land that gives readers a lot to think about when casting their votes in the next presidential election.

Ambitious, smart and one of Washington D.C.’s power elite, Samantha “Sam” Harrison’s entire political career, once seemingly unstoppable, is in question and her loyalty to her country is about to be tested as never before.

Washington, D.C. sustains the worst terrorist attack in American history, and the President of the United States needs Sam to serve her country once more. Political rivals on opposite sides of the aisle, Sam and the president have never agreed on deeply dividing issues. While Sam realizes that it’s time to put aside political differences, get justice, and help the nation to heal, she’s not sure whom she can trust. 

Leading the country out of chaos could put the White House once more within her grasp, but will place Sam, her daughter and her daughter’s first child directly in harm’s way. Sam’s actions in the coming days will decide her family’s survival, her political future, and the fate of the United States of America. The stakes have never been higher.

Kritters Thoughts:  The second in a series and I highly suggest if you start with book one, so opposed to spoilers then stop here and go read, but you have been warned!

So Sam starts this book and she has lost the presidential election and she has to decide where she wants to go from here - is her political life over or is there a spot for her somewhere else.  I absolutely adored this second book, it was so fun to continue on with Sam and see where she was going to go after a defeat.  

It was crazy to read a book set in the future that still felt very close to a truth.  I know I said above that I was going to spoil but I won't spoil the major plot point in this book because it was so good.  I liked the quick little hints and tips and views into the radicalizing of people and then the outcome is crazy but I don't know how far we are from it.  

I said this yesterday and I will reiterate because I still believe it to be true - I loved reading about real people in this fictional tale.  It was enjoyable to see them make appearances and interact with the fictional characters of the book.  I may have had to remind myself of the fictional part of it a few times!

Check out the blog tomorrow for the final review of this series.

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
