"O! Jackie" by Mercedes King {Book Review}


 Despite her poise and graceful smile, Jackie Kennedy’s life was far from perfect. Behind closed doors, Jackie struggled with bouts of depression, endured a heartbreaking road to motherhood, and had difficult relationships with those closest to her. Ravaged by insecurities and humiliation, she even wrestled her own temptations for both other men and divorce. But Jackie clung to the belief that she could make JFK abandon his wandering ways. Through the years, though, Jack Kennedy’s lustful escapades grew in carelessness and frequency, and most needling for Jackie were his trysts with Marilyn Monroe. When Marilyn becomes erratic and unstable, Jackie must decide how far she will go to protect the presidency and to save her marriage.

This was one book I couldn't wait to read once I got it and WOW I wasn't disappointed! Mercedes pens her plot realistic with her characters that come to life and emotional. Even though it is a book of fiction, you can't help but wonder if it could be true. I total must read that I highly recommend!
