Blog Tour Stop: The Beginner’s Guide to Winning an Election by Michael R. French

I don’t really read anything to do with politics, but this book was quiet interesting. A high school student who is accused of hacking an election against a boy who is running (which she was on his team), decides to fight back by running against him.


In 2025, the “youthification” of democracy has inspired younger candidates to challenge the ineffective and hypocritical gray-hairs in Congress. Running for student body president at an Indiana high school, political novice Brit Kitridge takes on incumbent Matthew Boltanski, who, with help from a mystery backer, already has his eyes on Washington. Brit gains courage and insights from a wise history teacher on how to win, but ultimately finds a maze of deceit and corruption in her school. Is exposing the truth enough to win the election?

I love any book with a girl who is a bad***, who has no fear, and will stand up for what they believe in. This book definitely showed this with Brit. She was kicked out of a running team because she was accused of hacking, runs against the popular boy in school for revenge, and finds deep, dark secrets of both the boy and his friend.

But, the more I read it, the more I started seeing today’s problem. I don’t really like anything politics, so I kept it in my mind that this is a book for the young adult, and to inspire girls to be strong, and to stand up for what they believe in, and no one can tell them they cannot do it.

I give the book five stars. Because I was a teenager (long ago), and I am raising my little to be a strong and independent woman. This is definitely the book for the girls who strive to be the best.

The Quick Family Ranch Books by Aden Lowe

My first cowboy romance book. And, I am in love already . . .

Synopsis for Quick ‘N Dirty

Jake, his brothers, and their dear are slowly starving, and drowning in a pile of dirty laundry since their grandmother’s death. They can’t give the Quick Ranch the future their grandmother wanted if they can’t even feed themselves. Sick of frozen pizzas and no clean shirts, Jake’s dad orders him to hire a housekeeper, and do it quick. He has no idea where to start and doesn’t have time on top of his ranch work, but the local minister has the perfect candidate. Jake hires Ande as soon as he hears her story, and vows to do anything, no matter how dirty, to keep her and her two small children safe. Now, he just has to hope he can keep his hands to himself and not ruin this for his family.

First of all, Jake is just a cutie. The oldest, the most mature, and probably the most innocent (that I know of so far). The way he attaches himself to those babies is the most adorable thing I have ever read.

The babies, the brothers, the dad, Ande, all of them, are just the sweetest together. The dad, Jonathan, probably has the biggest space in my heart. He is introduced as a tough one, but he does have a weakness.

Book 2 of the Quick Family Ranch series . . .

Welp, still love Jonathan (probably even more), and I thought I loved Jake, until I started to get to know Sam. And I knew there was something deep down in that little body of hers. (One thing about me when shopping for books, or volunteering to read a book, I never read the synopsis. To me, it is like judging a book by it’s cover. If the title seems interesting, that is what draws me in ;)).

Marynn is the second strongest woman in the series (besides Ande, of course). I especially loved the scene where she changed a baby for the first time. Hee hee hee.

Synopsis for Quick Start

Sam Quick watches his older brother leave for his honeymoon, relieved now that one of them is married and ready to carry out Gramma’s wishes for the family and ranch to grow. Now all he has to do get Ande’s little boy safely into the truck and back to the ranch, and he can get back to work. At least, that’s the plan until the girl from his dreams runs her shiny BMW right up under his battered old Dodge truck. She doesn’t hesitate to let him know what she thinks about cowboys and their dirty trucks. Giving her a hard time is the most fun he’s had in years until he finds out the spoiled little girl is actually a shy, innocent woman on her own for the first time. He signs on to help her find her inner strength and hopes like hell he doesn’t fall head over heels for her at the same time. Wither way, he’d better get a quick start.

Overall, I cannot wait until book 3 comes out. Aden . . . I am addicted. Thank you.
