Lis Wiehl with Sebastian Stuart in their new book, “Newsmakers book coverThe Newsmakers” Book One in the Newsmakers series published by Thomas Nelson introduces us to Erica Sparks.

From the inside jacket flap:   TV reporter Erica Sparks has become a superstar overnight. Is it due to her hard work and talent, or is she at the center of a spiraling conspiracy?

Erica Sparks is a beautiful and ambitious reporter who has just landed her dream job at Global News Network in New York. And while it was hard to leave Jenny, her cherished eight-year-old daughter, in the custody of her ex-husband, Erica is determined to succeed in the cutthroat world of big-time broadcasting. She can only hope her troubled past won’t come back to sabotage her dreams.

Although the wounds from her divorce are still fresh, Erica can’t deny the chemistry between her and her new producer, the handsome and empathic Greg Underwood. But a relationship is the last thing she wants right now.

On her very first assignment, Erica inadvertently witnesses—and films—a horrific tragedy, scooping all the other networks. Mere weeks later, another tragedy strikes—again, right in front of Erica and her cameras. Her career skyrockets overnight, but Erica is troubled. Deeply. This can’t just be coincidence. But what is it?

Erica will stop at nothing to uncover the truth. But she has to make sure disaster—and her troubled past—don’t catch up with her first.

This is the high quality story that needs to be made into a movie. This one has it all:  politics, media, power, terrorism, conspiracy, and murder. Erica Sparks is a fascinating character. She has all her own faults but is trying to heal from some of her past mistakes.  She really is a reporter and she begins to investigate some of the events that have been occurring when she has been around. This puts her life in danger. The other characters, from her family and those at work, are exceptionally well written and they will get you involved with them as you read along. “The Newsmakers” is an excellent mystery filled with great plot twists, suspense and thrills.   This is an exciting book, extremely well paced and suspenseful.  This is a great way to begin the series and I am so looking forward to the next book in this series.
