Book Review - Primary Decision


The road to power and position is fraught with perils, even for a Worthington.
But Sarah does not intend to lose.

Sarah Worthington never expected to become the US attorney general--at least not this early in her career. Plunged into the vicious vetting process, with all sides digging for secrets in her family closet, she steels herself for the path forward. Nothing will deter her from making her mark on the world in the biggest way possible--even if that means prosecuting the current president of the United States.

Yet powerful forces conspire behind the scenes to take the Worthington family down, and the president orders her to close the investigation. Will she comply? Or turn the tables to pursue her ultimate dream--the US presidency?


Dr. Kevin Leman, the New York Times bestselling author of more than 50 books, including The Birth Order Book, has made thousands of house calls for Fox & Friends, The View, Today, Morning in America, CBS's The Early Show, The 700 Club, CNN, and Good Morning America.

Jeff Nesbit, a former senior communications official at the White House and former director of public affairs for two prominent federal science agencies, is a strategic communications advisor and the author of 25 novels. The executive director of Climate Nexus, he also writes At the Edge, a weekly column for U.S. News & World Report.


This story is about a complex, wealthy family who are very much in the political world. They are very tight knit and it's interesting to see all the complexities of the different family issues that come up. This is book three in the Worthington series and I was a bit lost here and there so I think it would have benefited me to have read the first two books. I also had a bit of difficulty getting into this book, however, I'm glad I hung in there because it ended up being a good book.

This book focuses on Sarah, the youngest daughter of the family. She is a highly successful attorney and is wanting to make positive changes in the country through politics. She is going against vicious rumors and setbacks by other people trying to stop her. On top of this, she is dealing with a family secret that will have her questioning everything she thought was true.

I enjoyed the fact that we saw a lot of traits of the birth order in this book. Dr. Leman is an expert in this and it was fun to see these character traits in the people of this book. I thought it was wonderful that this family tries to hold onto high ideals and do the right thing. It was definitely a fast paced book once I got past the first few chapters and I enjoyed it. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
