What Matters Most By Kellie Coates Gilbert

Deeply Emotional Writing Highlights the Complexities of Human Relationships
Leta Breckenridge is forced to drop out of college to care for her dementia-ridden mother. After learning a severely delinquent account may force her mother into a less desirable facility, Leta steps out of her comfort zone and lands a high-paying job at an Austin public relations firm. But her dream job turns into a nightmare when she learns the firm is a front for a political opposition machine--and that the research she's been collecting will be used against her new love interest, Nathan Emerson.

Nathan is a rising political star being pressured to run a bid to unseat the current governor of Texas. He's already in a relationship with a woman much better suited to be a politician's wife, but he's never met anyone like Leta. Could this feisty, challenging woman hold the key to his heart?

I have really enjoyed all of the Texas Gold series. But this one was by far the most intriguing. I loved the characters  and the twists in this one so much more that the others. I was trying to figure out what was going on and was sadden by the treatment of Leta by her employers and I really was sad about Leta's mom. This is the perfect book for this election year.
I did however perk up when the story was about Nate and Leta.
I have to say my favorite part was the ending. You don't want to miss this one.
I gave this 4 stars and I recommend it and the whole series.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
