Not the best, but completely satisified.
Palin By Comparison
It's Sarah Palin (in case you didn't already know).
Didn't listen to 18 Acres, the first novel in this series, but I read it print. It's Complicated is certainly more interesting because of the Palin connection -- in case you didn't already know, Nicole Wallace worked directly with Palin during her 2008 vice presidential campaign, not a pleasant experience for either woman, and the veep candidate in the book is based on Palin.
But 18 Acres has a stronger story and better characterizations overall, and a better treatment of the theme of women at the highest level of politics and journalism. This sequel gets a little too bogged down in the Palin comparison, and the story suffers as a result. Listen to 18 Acres first, since it is a direct precursor with all the same characters, and then move on to It's Complicated.
Good straightforward performance.
