From the former communications director for the White House and current political media strategist comes a suspenseful and smart commercial novel about the first female president and all 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 forty-fifth US 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 adviser. 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 given her life to serving.

Eighteen Acres combines political and family drama into a smart, juicy, and fast-paced listen that fans of commercial women’s fiction will fall in total love with.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Liz | 2/20/2014

    " I thought this oculd have been better. it's bvery chick lit-y. All the women are beautiful, smart successful and wind up winning in the end. The men are all dogs. It was interesting trying to figure out who the characters would be in real life. "

    " I felt I wanted much more as far as plot. She has a great start but I was expecting more of a thriller or conspiracy. "

    " Interesting look at the fictional stories behind the White House with the first woman President and her supporting cast. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Kourtney | 2/5/2014

    " Whoever called it poli-sci chic lit was right. However horrible that sounds, I couldn't put it down. I'm fascinated by the idea of a female president (and I don't mean Palin) and how gender stereotypes are expressed in our culture politically, so this was an interesting exploration. "
