Presidential Declarations by Douglas J. Wood is an entertaining and ambitious political thriller. The story follows a precocious woman named Samantha “Sam” Harrison as she follows her dreams by climbing the political ladder in Washington D.C. Everything seems to be going Sam’s way until a devastating terrorist attack changes everything. The President calls on Sam in one of the nation’s direst hours and the pair must work together (putting all political differences aside) if they are going to save the country. Sam has ambitious goals of reaching the White House office in her illustrious political career, but at what cost? Thinking of the safety of her family, Sam must make difficult choices about how she will help the President and the country as well as keep her family safe from harm.

I thought Presidential Declarations was an entertaining read. Sam was a very likeable protagonist; she was smart, resilient, hard working and loyal. She was not without flaws, but she always tried to do the right thing. As a woman myself, it was interesting to read about a woman’s journey through the tough, convoluted and often corrupt political world. Wood writes Sam in such a way that I felt she more than held her own. I also really liked the cover of the book; I think it really embodied the story and tone of the book. Fans of political thrillers, suspense and action genres will find a lot to enjoy in Presidential Declarations by Douglas J. Wood.
