Inventive story line, and quite well written. This story included lots of humor, a little tasteful sex, and a peppy, though, of course, predictable plot. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, and I think I read it in one day.
Wonderful, funny, warm book reinforcing the value of families. Left me with warm fuzzies!
Really enjoyed this one. The epilogue was a little too "canned" and Pollyannaish, but otherwise, it was a book of likeable, believable characters.
Cornelia Case wants nothing more than to escape her life in the public eye. After her husband, the president of the United States was assassinated Cornelia longs to experience the ordinary. She manages to disguise herself and elude the secret service men tasked with her safety. On her adventure she meets up with Matt Jorvich who finds himself the guardian to two children Lucy and Button. Lucy at 14 whose Mother recently died has been raising Button by herself. Cornelia finds herself on a journey with the Jorvich to find the girls' grandmother. Along the way Cornelia finds herself part of a family.
First Lady was an enjoyable read. I thought the characters were endearing. The adventures they found themselves in were fun to listen to. First Lady isn't my favorite book by SEP. I can't really put my finger on why. I enjoyed the characters. Although I thought maybe towards the end that Cornelia and Matt were extremely stubborn in their resistance to their feelings for one another, Matt especially about having a family. If they would have just talked about things, misunderstandings could have been avoided. I know this review is short, but I just don't have much more to say about it. I enjoyed the story, but it wasn't my favorite by SEP. That about sums it up for me.
*Interesting factoid:* Lucy makes an appearance in SEPs latest release Call Me Irresistible as Teddy Beaudines fiancé.
