The Newsmakers by Lis Wheil

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.

Here is what I thought.......
  Lets see. Where do I start? I guess I will go ahead and start with the positives. The writing is good. The plot line was interesting enough. The main character was interesting enough, but some of the supporting characters left a lot to be desired. The idea of second chances and doing what's right was a great thought in this book but it left out the most important part to second chances and that is Jesus. This book was published by a supposed Christian company, but the bad language and questionable subject matter really turned me off. It was not something I would deem Christian. I would really like for them to separate their non-Christian from their Christian. All that being said the story is one you will probably keep reading (if you don't mind bad language.) But it wasn't so great that I would recommend it to anyone.
I received this book from the publisher and the Fiction Guild in exchange for an honest review. A positive review was not required.

3 out of 5 stars
PG-13 (language and subject matter)
Not suitable for teens under 16 in my opinion
Bad language and inappropriate content throughout

  1. Good review, with some great points friend! I felt the same way. The story was intriguing, but the fact that they totally left GOD out was quite disappointing.
