Pursuit of Happiness By Carsen Taite


An out presidential candidate (Meredith Mitchell) who is not afraid to follow her heart during campaigning. That is truly utopia. A public defender (Stevie Palmer) who is leery about getting involved with the would-be president. The two women are very interesting characters. The author does an excellent job of keeping their jobs in focus while creating a wonderful romance around the campaign and intense media focus.

Meredith is portrayed lovingly as a mature person with her heart leading her one way while her circumstance is driving her another way. Yet, she is never shown to falter in following her heart. Stevie, on the other hand, is tentative about their relationship, unsure about whether she wants to get drawn in the drama.

Both the women are humanised and their character arcs are consistent. Their feelings for each other are well documented…though they actually only meet about half a dozen times before expressing their love for each other. But since we believe in love at first sight, that is hardly an impossibility for us.

We were a little uncertain about the book when we started precisely because of the context, but Taite has written a book that draws you in. It had us hooked from the first paragraph to the last.

We thoroughly enjoyed this book and would unhesitatingly recommend it.
