To begin this review of "Capitol in Crisis"  Kathy Roy Johnson I have to say I am not sure why the genre is listed as a thriller or a suspense. Because to me that genre makes me think there is murder or things going on that are of a creepy or crime committed. Which isn't at all want this book is about
 Ok , there is a little bit of tension as the reader is reading this book to see if there  survivors and if they are brought to safety. 

This was an interesting book, I really enjoy reading and learning about the rescue methods.  I thought the friendships that bloomed betweeen the victims and the ones working to save them were the best part of the story.  Of course, this book does have one person who I guess, you could say was the evil antagonist since this is listed as a thriller.  He didn't want to follow the leaders and he wanted to make sure the history was preserved instead of rescuing the victims. 

If you are looking for a short read that isn't a sappy love story, ( but a couple does get engaged) or too preachy, ( prayers are said) or too graphics with terrifying scenes then this book is for you!

This book wasn't at all what I was expecting when I first starting reading but I am glad I was given the chance because I received a complementary copy from the author and Celebrate Lit. These are my own opinions.
