Simone Perez, Architect of the Capitol, is stunned when a terrible explosion which rocks the Capitol, totally collapsing the tunnel which connects the House and Senate Chambers and trapping several people.

My Thoughts

 Capitol in Crisis is written by  Kathy Roy Johnson. This is a Christian Political Suspense Thriller. The author has previously worked for the US Senate so I feel that she wrote so much behind the scenes that I learned a lot from reading this book. 

The book is slow at first, but it builds up and gives you the foundation you will need to go on the adventure. Simone Perez, who is the architect of the Capitol is shocked when the explosion happens. The explosion collapses the tunnel between the House and Senate Chambers. There are people trapped - and they are counting on her to save their lives. She handles the reporters who are firing questions and accusations with such grace. 

This book contains so many other wonderful characters. They all work together try and get out of the rubble. Addie, in particular who owns the cafe that is destroyed. She was so worried how she was going to make ends meet. 

The characters are well written, the storyline is believable. The author writes from her experience which was really unique to read. This was my first read by this author, and I look forward to more from her. 

I received a copy of this book through the Celebrate Lit blogging program, all thoughts are my own.
