"I have always been fascinated with the Kennedy family so this book was a perfect read for me. In this novel the author tells the story of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, a First Lady, a fashion icon, a mother and a wife. Outwardly she was the perfect wife and perfect first lady. Inwardly she had her own demons, the heartbreak of miscarriages, the humiliation of her husbands infidelities and the lack of privacy that comes when your life is in the public eye. The story ends in 1962, and we all know what happened in 1963 so I was pleased that the author ended the story where she did. I think Ms. King did a wonderful job in telling Jackie's story in a "what if" premise with a surprise ending that I didn't see coming. I really enjoyed this novel and I think that anyone interested in the Kennedy's and Jackie in particular will find this fictionalized version of events an interesting read." -- Amazon reviewer

O! Jackie explores the private life of Jackie Kennedy, including the heartache she endured on her road to motherhood, her difficult personal relationships, and her passionate desire to end JFK's wandering ways. Being devoted to an unfaithful husband, Jackie knew humiliation well. Most needling for Jackie was her husband's trysts with Marilyn Monroe. When Marilyn's behavior becomes erratic and unstable, Jackie must decide how far she will go to protect the presidency and to save her marriage.
