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.

Intriguing Presidential Drama
Where does Eighteen Acres rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I would rate Eighteen Acres in the top 25 of all of the audiobooks I have listened to both though Audible as well as other sources.
What did you like best about this story?
There were two things I liked equally: the different perspectives from multiple characters across the novel and the pace of the story. The pace was swift but not breakneck.
What does Susan Bennett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Susan Bennett brings an additional audible sense of emotion.
If you could take any character from Eighteen Acres out to dinner, who would it be and why?
Melanie Kingston. I would absolutely want to dine with Kingston because of her access to the President. As much as it would be interesting to dine with the/a President, I would rather be able to pick the brain of her closest confidant.
Any additional comments?
Nicolle Wallace is not only an accomplished author, but she is also a fascinating person, and she brings that to her novel. Her novel is a must-read, and she is definitely someone who you should get to know beyond her work.
