I received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

I'll admit it: I totally requested this book because of the Scandal comparisons. I freaking love that show so much. Here is what I did like about the book: the mystery was a very compelling one. There were twists and turns and I kept reading just to find out what happened and who the bad guy was. As it turned out, everyone was a bad guy.

Here is what I didn't like about the book: just about everything else. That is not to say that I hated the book exactly, just that I didn't like it very much. Does that even make sense? I was trying really, really hard with this book but it was so incredibly unrealistic. Yeah, I know. It's a work of fiction. But come on . . . these were teenagers who were trying to solve a government conspiracy that went all the way to the White House. I mean, really? And even though Tess's sister Ivy has way more experience with it and even though she understands people's lives... Read more
Maaaybeee 3.5 stars, but I'm going with 4.

When I first heard about The Fixer I was excited because NEW JENNIFER LYNN BARNES. As a big, big, big fan of The Naturals and Killer Instinct, I was ready to devour more of Barnes's books, and I loved that her latest sounded kind of similar to The Naturals series. And despite a few minor issues, I liked this twisty, problem solving novel.

The Fixer tells the story of Tess Kendrick, a sixteen year old (not very willingly) brought away from her grandfather and his ranch in Montana to live with her older sister Ivy in Washington D.C. In D.C., she gets driven around by Ivy's personal assistant Bodie (he's fantastic), attends a very, very nice school, and quickly learns what exactly it is that the (in)famous Ivy Kendrick does: she fixes things. In short, Ivy Kendrick is Scandal's Olivia Pope, minus sex with the president. She works in D.C., and when someone has a problem she fixes it, and she gets stuff done--and does it on... Read more
I got a copy of this book to review through NetGalley. Previous to reading The Fixer I had read both the first book in Barens’ Raised by Wolves series (didn’t like it) and her The Naturals series (loved it). I didn't enjoy this book as much as Barnes' The Naturals series. This was still an engaging YA political thriller.

Tess ends up traveling to DC to live with her sister who and finds out she is a “fixer” for politicians and big wigs in DC. What follows is both a mystery and a thriller involving Tess trying to solve the mystery behind the death of a Supreme Court Justice; meanwhile Tess's sister is also working on the case. When people start dying Tess begins to realize how very serious the situation is.

This story follows an interesting premise, but I am not a huge fan of reading about politics and conspiracy theory. Aside from all the "fixing" and politics in here there is a nice side plot about the strained relationship... Read more
