what i think

My early thoughts about Incumbent were not wrong. This book was wonderful. Drake is this honest, intelligent, passionate man who happens to be a politician. Lucy is a teacher who went into teaching for all the right reasons! These are 2 honorable people in a world that loves to tear you down. Their story felt real to me and I wasn’t expecting that. I also wasn’t expecting the tears but this book did make me cry a little. The other Prescott siblings are amazing as well and I cannot wait for their books! (I totally think Gretchen and Mason will get together!). Joanne Schwehm has managed to write a beautiful book about a world that isn’t always beautiful. While you do get to see the ugly side of politics the book was still different from what I expected. You figure out early on what will most likely happen, and even seeing it coming, I was still surprised by a few things.
