The story of a man who runs for office and jeopardizes his family.
What happens when Bob Silva, who is married to the ex-wife of Tea Party Teddy, decides to run for the California State Assembly against the Reverend Jim Thurston, a devoted Tea Party member?
Will Reverend Jim seek revenge for the death of his friend, Tea Party Teddy?
And why is every television station in California and across the nation featuring Bob Silva as their lead story on the evening news?
“Elroy, I don’t care what it costs. If it keeps Suzanne from going down the rabbit hole again, it’s worth it. All she wants is a baby and it doesn’t matter how we get it. If I have to buy a baby for her, I’d consider it a damn good investment. I’m getting tired of seeing doctors, having my sperm tested, and seeing her getting closer and closer to going to the loony bin permanently. Do whatever you can. I’ll wait for your call.”
Compelling & Intelligent Read
Tea Party Teddy's Legacy" by Dianne Harman is a great political thriller about the election campaign for the California State Assembly. Bob Silva, hero of the first book, Tea Party Teddy, runs against far right-wing Reverend Jim Thurston. Silva’s wife used to be married to Tea Party Teddy and is now heavily pregnant.
Harman sets up the rivals brilliantly within a short space of time and with excellent eye for details, background and characterisation. When Silva retreats from the election campaign for private reasons the Reverend needs to step up his game by all means necessary.
With dry wit, great observational skill and humour and with clear knowledge of political processes the author has delivered another excellent story that exposes greed and hunger for power and the extent to which some individuals will go to get what they want.
The term ‘legacy’ from the title reverberates throughout the story – a well-chosen title. The story is relatively short which is perfect for the tightly edited plot. Nothing is superfluous in this story, this is a well-paced and skilfully narrated novel full of suspense. A compelling and intelligent read that I most enjoyed. 5 enthusiastic and well deserved stars.
Another Winner From Dianne Harman
I've read each novel Dianne Harman has written and enjoyed them all. They're clever and have intriguing plotlines. Tea Party Teddy's Legacy is no exception. Only 102 pages long, I read it in one pleasurable sitting. Reverend Jim Thurston, a Tea Party member (and not a nice guy) is running against Bob Silva for a seat in the California State Assembly. The not-so-good reverend has certain criminal intentions, and without giving away the plot, the novella takes the reader down a fast track to the resolution of a number of high-octane conflicts. I enjoyed every paragraph of each page and recommend this novella to anyone who enjoys a fast-paced story with a satisfying conclusion.
A Great Political Novel With Twists & Turns
The Tea Party has again selected a right winger, the Reverend Jim Thurston, as their candidate for the California State Assembly. But this time, he will go against Bob Silva, who was the hero in the first novel, and happens be the husband of Tea Party Teddy's former wife.
Jim Thurston has a lot of secret and criminal baggage that needs to be made public so the voters can choose the most honest and worthy man for the office. Ms. Harman does a wonderful job in desciribing his unlawful dealings which are making him rich on the backs of the unfortunate.In contrast, Bob Silva is portrayed in a loving way and would make the perfect political representative who has the good of the people in mind.
Polical life in California is again portrayed with much depth and clarity. It is a work that is easy to follow and enjoyable to read.
