Seduction and intrigue are rampant on the campaign trail when a political campaign adviser discovers that Washington's power broker elite have embroiled his presidential candidate in a plot involving an act of terrorism on US soil…

 

SYNOPSIS

Democratic political campaign consultant Ben Brinker can’t remember the last time he was excited by a candidate’s vision. He feels he’s lost his way, both emotionally and professionally. Worst yet, his show-me-the-money policy seems to have finally caught up with him. Two of his recent clients have been disgraced in one way or another: a senator is caught in lurid sex scandal, and a congressman is indicted in a kickback scandal. In no time at all the political pundits are calling Ben a "candidate cooler." Now Ben is desperate for any campaign gig he can get.

As luck would have it, Andrew Harris Mansfield, the charismatic junior senator from North Carolina  and former Marine pilot, asks Ben if he wants to run his soon-to-be-announced campaign for president.

Little does Ben know what's in store for Andrew, or their country–

Nor does he realize that the key to saving both have been placed in his hands.

One of my dear, sweet friends found a birthday card with this image. (Ha! Yes, my birthday is due — but don't feel bad about not knowing, since I have quit publicizing it YEARS ago…not to mention that she jumped the gun by SEVERAL weeks.)

You can find it from the greeting card maker Nouvelles Images. Obviously it's from the 1930s, and oui, it is French in origin.  Don't you just love the way her leg flies straight up and out, to signal her shock over whatever it is she is reading?

And look at the fabulous styling! The striped piping on the oversized chair; The way her chocolate catches the light. How her candy dish shines. The pleats of her skirt. The appliques on her top…

And of course, her stuffed dog sidekick.

My friend wrote:

Here's to a good book (written by Josie Brown), a box of chocolates, and a big comfy chair.

I'll drink to that!

Which brings up one item sorely missing from this photo: a glass of red wine.

Ah, well.

The story is in the details, ducky!
