Leta Breckenridge struggles to manage multiple jobs and care for her mother, who suffers from dementia. Bills begin to pile up and a notice from the nursing home concerning overdue payments causes Leta to accept what seems like a dream job in order to make ends meet. Her new job at the Austin public relations firm begins innocently enough, but when she realizes the firm may not be all that it seems, she starts to doubt her choice, despite its ideal benefits. Worse yet, the company collects data to harm the campaign of Nathan Emerson, the senator who is nothing but kind to Leta. As Leta attempts to stick to her morals, she finds her heart torn between a new love and her family.
Kellie Coates Gilbert manages to pen the most emotionally gripping stories with such significant depth and fantastic character development. Leta is a realistic heroine who struggles with everyday financial difficulties and moral dilemmas with which many readers can connect. She makes difficult decisions and sticks to her values, an admirable trait. This novel made me cry and it made me laugh. The scenes effortlessly intertwine emotion, depth, and spiritual truths. The plot was very interesting and the storyline flowed well. I enjoyed the romance and would recommend this book to all lovers of contemporary romance.
