Publisher's Summary

From the former communications director for the White House and current political media strategist comes a suspenseful and smart novel about the first female president and all the dramas and deceptions she faces, both in politics and in love.
Eighteen Acres, a description used by political insiders when referring to the White House complex, follows the first female president of the United States, Charlotte Kramer, and her staff as they take on dangerous threats from abroad and within her very own cabinet.
Charlotte Kramer, the 45th U.S. president; Melanie Kingston, the White House chief of staff; and Dale Smith, a White House correspondent for one of the networks are all working tirelessly on Charlotte's campaign for re-election. At the very moment when they should have been securing success, though, Kramer's White House implodes under rumors of her husband's infidelity and grave errors of judgment on the part of her closest national security advisor. In an upheaval that threatens not only the presidency but the safety of the American people, Charlotte must fight to regain her footing and protect the the country she has devoted her life to serving.
Eighteen Acres combines political and family drama into one un-pausable novel. It is a smart, juicy and fast-paced read that we're sure fans of commercial women's fiction will fall in total love with.

Biased and Oh So Boring

Another Morning Joe suggested and heavily marketed book written by White House insider Nicolle Wallace. I had high hopes for a fun engaging listen. The idea was a great one --full of possibilities. The execution was the problem. Instead of upbeat and in-the-loop it dragged on and sounded so careful and stilted that I found it hopeless. Can't recommend. Ho-hum --no more Morning Joe for me.

Fast Paced, US Weekly Take on the US Presidency:

You will not find any tremendous insights with Nicole Wallace's version of a female presidency under-pressure. The scandals are believable, the action exciting, and the story bubble-gum enough to be quite satisfying.

This book is light and easy, and the plot is fast paced and well developed. This book is good satirical fiction, and I enjoyed it beyond my expectations.

There are plenty of great plot twists, and the ending is not so obvious at first.

Crank it up to 3x as the writing is not dense at all.
