Alicia’s ChoiceFrida Malmgren, Linnea Malmgren
Romance set in the corridors of power, written by two multi-talented and successful sisters.
Entertainment journalist Alicia Johansson gets the chance of a lifetime when newspaper Aftonpressen dispatches her to the major political summit of the winter season, the Defense Leadership Forum. She hopes that this will be the stepping stone that she’s so longed for; a new career as a serious reporter, away from celebrity gossip.
On her way up north to the forum, Alicia is the first responder to a car accident. Flagging her down by the side of the wintry road is the rising star of politics — as well as renowned playboy — Max Horn. His car is a wreck after a collision with an unfortunate moose. Alicia offers Max a lift to the nearest town, their mutual attraction is clear for all to see.
Alicia resists the pull she feels toward Max; she knows too much about his history with women, plus, she as a journalist and he as a politician, are on opposite sides. When Alicia begins to dig deeper into a story concerning Max’s boss, the Minister of Health Hans Tessin, it becomes clear that their professional roles are threatening to get in the way of them ever having a chance at a future together. And yet, Alicia cannot stop thinking about Max.
The time comes when she’s faced with one of the toughest choices of her life: the chance of love, or her long-awaited career as an investigative reporter, when she has the opportunity of writing an exposé of a scandal in the highest echelons of power, involving Max’s boss and his team. Can she find a way of having her cake and eating it too?
Perfect for readers of Elin Hilderbrand and Minnie Darke.
