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 twenty-six year old health care analyst to Ohio Junior Senator Robert Gary. 

Hard working, idealistic, and 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 seventy-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?

    " Very funny read "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Lisa | 1/29/2014

    " I did not care for this book. It falls into the 'chic lit with annoying/helpless main character that makes bad decisions' category. That's all I can really say about it. It did improve as it progressed, but still... if I wasn't reading this for a book club, I probably would have given up... "

    " This book is laugh-out-loud funny. I read this as a diversion when I was prepping for the GREs and it was just what the Dr. ordered. "

    " It's not anything revelatory, but it is entertaining...kind of a thinking woman's chick lit. I think I came across the author while processing her latest book for circulation at the library. I believe what caught my attention was that she has written for Futurama and the book's main character works on health care legislation for a progressive senator. After I finished the book and turned it over, I noticed that a reviewer called it "Bridget Jones goes to Washington." I concur completely; though it was almost exactly what I expected, it did hook me enough to read the second half all in one sitting. "
