    I struggled with whether or not to give this onestars The author does write well, and it is an intriguing story with some fairly intense moments So why only 3 stars Because I almost gave it only 2 Here s why 1 the author has no reason to prove herself she obviously has the credentials to know what she s writing about, at least in the political arena and yet, I got the feeling throughout that she was trying to prove she had eaten at that certain restaurant she conveniently fit into I struggled with whether or not to give this onestars The author does write well, and it is an intriguing story with some fairly intense moments So why only 3 stars Because I almost gave it only 2 Here s why 1 the author has no reason to prove herself she obviously has the credentials to know what she s writing about, at least in the political arena and yet, I got the feeling throughout that she was trying to prove she had eaten at that certain restaurant she conveniently fit into the story, or that she really had been at that one hotel, or been in that one part of the White House, etc.2 the author also suffers from an acronym definition disease of some sort Almost every chapter and there were 76 chapters she used an acronym, followed immediately by someone spelling out what it stood for Every time 3 the author also suffers from youmeanitis What s that It goes like this Character 1 I m going to call Janis Character 2 You mean the Director of the FBI or like this Character 1 Let s meet at the OEOB Character 2 You mean the Old Executive Office Building Time after time she would use an abbreviation and then immediately spell it outeven when the two characters speaking should both know the acronym.4 25% of this book was blank page space As I said earlier, there were 76 chapters and yet only 300 pages meaning there was an average of 4 pages per chapter With each chapter starting off with 1 2 page blank, and almost every chapter ending with 1 2 page blank, that s 1 full page out of every 3 that was blank.5 It all ended WAY to easily and WAY to quickly After 70 very short chapters, with no one having a clue what was going on yet, suddenly they solved every mystery, saved the world, and went off to have 2 3rds of a page worth of well detailed sexwhich really didn t feel like it should have been in there Up until that point there were references to affairs and encounters, and a kiss or two, and then suddenly BAM hit you right in the face gratuitous sex Why It wasn t a romantic thriller It wasn t needed Sorry to say I will not be reading ANYof this authors work

    MWSA Review Gambit is the second book in Karna Small Bodman s White House National Security Series In this installment, Dr Cameron Talbot, a brilliant young American scientist takes on the mystery of American civilian planes being shot down with no warning on radar and no claims of responsibility from any terrorist group The result is panic for pilots, flight attendants, and potential flyers as well as the airlines and a falling stock market Talbot continues to struggle with lack of support f MWSA Review Gambit is the second book in Karna Small Bodman s White House National Security Series In this installment, Dr Cameron Talbot, a brilliant young American scientist takes on the mystery of American civilian planes being shot down with no warning on radar and no claims of responsibility from any terrorist group The result is panic for pilots, flight attendants, and potential flyers as well as the airlines and a falling stock market Talbot continues to struggle with lack of support from her boss who is overridden by a request from the White House to solve this problem As usual, she has an idea She is once again paired with Lt Col Daniels, who left her without explanation after a romantic interlude in India, causing her much personal stress When her name is leaked to the media as working on a solution, someone tries repeatedly to kill her.Relevant details from the first book are nicely woven into this story so that it can be read as a stand alone novel Bodman s knowledge of the White House, as a result of serving in the Reagan administration, allows her to include details of not only the buildings but also the complexities faced by any administration The book would profit from a final proofreader as there are many typos, misspellings, and punctuation errors However, these do not interfere significantly with this well crafted story Review by Nancy Kauffman June 2019

    Light easily readable thriller with intriguing plot, good female characters and a good sense of woman and male interaction However, I find the pseudo science that the main character is supposed to know is just not believable.
