Awesome book, really hard to put down. Have not ever read anything by this author that was not outstanding. This is a book about a reporter that's called by the "first lady" that wants to meet her. The first lady & her President just lost a child to SIDS and it takes off from there. A lot of suspense, romance and very surprising ending.

A thriller that is filled with unexpected twists and turns. My favorite kind!! The setting is a fast-paced newsroom and the White House. How many times have we wondered about the news we get from the White House via our reporters and Sandra Brown's book will make us see layers we never knew existed. Plus enough sex and romance to add some fun.

As usual with a Sandra Brown book, I was hooked after only a couple of pages. Barrie, a reporter with a small time tv station,receives a call from the wife of the President of the United States, inviting her to meet for coffee. The President's wife is still in mourning for her baby son who died from S.I.D.S. A web begins to unravel involving wife beating, murder, drugs and the abuse of power. Barrie becomes involved with Gray, a former presidential aide (gorgeous of course), and together they form a partnership which threatens to bring down the government. It's thrills a second with "Exclusive" and a very satisfying, fast-paced read.

Barrie Travis is not famous: she's just a damn good reporter stuck at a low-budget television station. Then the First Lady calls her...and offers her the story of a lifetime. The president's wife, stunned by grief after the loss of her infant son, hints that her child may have been murdered. Blind to everything but finding the truth, Barrie's fight for an exclusive story will test her ethics, her patriotism, and her courage. Then, with the help of Gray Bondurant, a mysterious former presidential aide, she unearths White House secrets that, if exposed, could topple the presidency. Now, even as she falls in love, Barrie must fight powerful forces that want nothing more than to see the scandalous past-and a certain young reporter-dead and buried.

"Fast Fun with a wild twist at the end."

This book is an easy and enjoyable read.
Barrie is a reporter who has made a few mistakes in her previous reporting experiences and is struggling to improve her reputation in her occupation. The president's wife, who lost her baby recently, asks to meet with her on an off the record meeting, much to her amazement. From the meeting, Barrie sees a story on SIDs as the baby belonging to the president and his wife died of it. As she looks into the story, it starts looking like murder instead, and then the story really heats up and doesn't let up until the last page. Just when you think you have it solved another twist shows up and takes you in another direction. Great book!

Watergate, Schmatergate, get a load of this: a dead infant, a sleazy president, a manic-depressive first lady, an aide that makes G. Gordon Liddy look like a wuss, murder, adultery, a thousand skeletons peeping from a thousand closets. Exclusive moves so quickly because somebody is always doing something bad. TV journalist Barrie Travis interviews the first lady, a Southern belle still mourning the death of her infant. With a mixture of horror and self-interest, Travis perceives the slightest hint that the first infant didn't merely die, but was murdered. But by who, and why? As you can imagine, that's when it gets messy. The book might capsize under the sheer weight of seamy scandals and sleazy characters were it not for the almost-supernaturally spunky Travis and her somewhat reluctant love-object, craggy ex-Marine Gray Bondurant. Bondurant left the White House under a cloud. Was he the first lady's lover? Travis and Bondurant come together to solve the mystery, of course.

FROM THE PUBLISHER
A second-stringer with first-class talent, Barrie Travis is stuck at a low-budget independent television station struggling to survive among the giant networks. Then, suddenly, she receives an invitation from First Lady Vanessa Merritt for an off-the-record conversation. Barrie's reporter's instincts are instantly aroused. During a furtive, emotionally charged meeting, Barrie sees that the President's beautiful wife is stunned by grief after the crib death of her infant son. Vanessa's motive for meeting Barrie seems to be to share her heartache with another woman. What Barrie overlooks in her excitement at hearing the confidences of the First Lady are the questions she should be asking: Why would Vanessa Merritt call her? And why would the President's wife hint to an unknown reporter that her child may have been murdered? Blind to everything but getting her exclusive, Barrie is determined to investigate the death of the President's child. But she soon realizes that getting her story will test her ethics and her patriotism. Would she expose information that could topple the presidency? She confronts this problem when she tracks down Gray Bondurant, a former presidential aide and war hero who shunned the politics of Washington in favor of life on a remote Wyoming ranch. And when they both begin to follow a trail of lies and intrigue right to the White House door, Barrie's exclusive puts at least three people on the firing line: the First Lady, Gray, and herself - as crimes and ambitions combine to endanger their lives and the future of the nation.
