Recession Provides Backdrop in New Book 'The Merger Mogul'

Longtime businesswoman Donna Every's new novel, "The Merger Mogul," www.donnaevery.com, is among the first to incorporate the recent recession as part of a storyline that also includes high finance, business principles, spirituality and romance.

"The main character, Daniel Tennant, is a top Manhattan merger consultant whose portfolio means more to him than anything -- even love," says Every, an accountant and business trainer who worked for Ernst & Young for 10 years before founding Arise Consulting, a business training and consulting firm.

This cavalier playboy's world is rocked when first the recession challenges his business and threatens his bank account, and then a frightening medical diagnosis prompts life-threatening surgery. In the midst of these crises he meets KT, a woman whose immediate and profound effect on him causes him to begin to see life, love, even business, in new ways.

"I write about what I know, and so I incorporated principle-centered business strategies in the story line," Every says. "I want readers to be entertained, but it's even more important to me for them to come away inspired and empowered to be successful in their businesses."

Reviewers say they enjoy the novel's themes and Every's gentle way of incorporating Christian values.

"I really liked the merging of Christian themes with business themes," writes Books Rock, an Amazon reviewer. "I also really liked how the heroine, and later the hero, stuck to her principles. The book isn't preachy -- it just makes the subject matter so palatable and easy to understand."

Adds reviewer Bookfiend:

"I really enjoyed this warm, hope-filled story about a ruthless but lonely finance wonder boy whose brush with a life-threatening event forces him to question everything; his beliefs, his very life."

"The Merger Mogul," available on Amazon, is Every's fourth book and her first foray into fiction.
