Comedy writer and middle daughter of Al Gore, Kristin Gore has written a funny and moving debut novel about life on Capitol Hill as seen through the eyes of Samantha Joyce, a 26-year-old health care analyst to Ohio Junior Senator Robert Gary. Hard working, idealistic, extremely competent, as well as neurotic and prone to daydreaming, Sammy, as she's known to her friends, has little time for anything, much less a relationship. But in the midst of lobbying and late-night dinners at the office, she meets Aaron Driver, who is hot, smart, and sweet, and who, after a night of binge drinking at a bachelor party, proclaims his love for her. But how will Sammy balance her 70-plus hour weeks with her budding romance, while keeping her best friend's slimy boyfriend from hitting on her, and making time for family, who insist her outfits match the centerpiece?More
"A fun, fast read, anchored by likable heroine Samantha Joyce....[Samantha's] self-deprecating sense of humor and idealism will keep readers entertained." (Publishers Weekly)
"Bridget Jones in high-wonk Washington mode." (The New York Times)
"An enchanting, downright hilarious debut....Readers will have fun trying to figure out the real political figures represented in Gore's book, but the true joy is the delightful Sammy herself, a quirky, clever, and completely lovable heroine whose charming narration is guaranteed to have readers in stitches." (Booklist)
