Book Review: The Candidate by Lis Wiehl

This was a very interesting book, based on issues of mind control that very well could be happening in our society today. It was fascinating to read an author who delved into this realm.

The Candidate is about a journalist reporter, who has her own show, much like a Nancy Grace of CNN, but this show was about Erica Sparks and was on the GNN network. She is doing a live report on the candidates, when an explosion happens in front of her that wipes out the rival candidates to Mike Ortiz and his wife, Celeste. In an instance, the other couple is gone.

There are so many things that are alerting Erica to things that just aren’t right. Every time she enlists with help from others, something seems to happen to impede her progress.

Without saying too much, I will say it is a book that kept my interest and I found it hard to put down. I ended up with some free time at work and was able to finish it there this afternoon. Because I finished it so fast, I know there were many details I probably missed in the conclusion, but in all I would definitely recommend reading this book. If anything, it gets you thinking and makes you wonder if such a thing is possible.

There is obviously a previous book to this story, because there were various references to a previous situation, but fortunately the story ran seemlessly without loosing me in this story.

One note though. If you are expecting a good Christian book, I’m not sure if this would fit typically in this category. I found it to be clean, but lacking the usual tones of Christianity throughout. It read more like a clean, fiction novel than one based from a Christian publisher.

I was provided a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher, Thomas Nelson via the Book Look Bloggers Program. The review is my own, honest opinion without any outside influences or requirements.
