Favorite Son by Will Freshwater
                            reviewed by: Becky

Born into a blue-collar family, John Wells beat the odds and came out a winner. As chief of staff to Patrick Donovan, a US senator and aspiring presidential candidate, he enjoys all the power and privilege of a DC insider. But while riding high on a wave of success, he’s blindsided by a series of betrayals from the people he trusts the most. In the space of a single day, John's perfect life unexpectedly unravels when his career falters and his marriage implodes. Following a final, devastating blow, John assumes a new identity as “Peter” and flees to Provincetown, where a tight-knit community of eclectic characters slowly transforms him. 

Peter finds himself drawn to Danny Cavanaugh, an enigmatic carpenter who is struggling to come to terms with his own troubled past. As they work together to renovate a local landmark, the two men forge an unlikely friendship that blossoms into love and becomes the foundation for a new life they hope to build together. But when a reversal of fortune pulls John back to DC, the treacherous world of politics he thought he’d left behind threatens to destroy his chance at true happiness.

I just finished this book, and I have gotta say I felt like I needed a nerve pill! It was a wonderful,
wild ride of twists and turns that will leave you breathless. This is author Will Freshwater's first

 novel, and you would never be able to tell it. Smart dialog, and nerve wracking plot twists that will

 make your hair stand on end. This book shows us that when we seemingly lose it all, what we lose

 turns out to be what we never should have wanted in the first place! Pick this book up, you won't

 be sorry!
