In this incisive comedy, late twenty-something Sammy Joyce—hypochondriac, klutz, jumper-to-conclusion—is in the White House as a health-care advisor to the newly elected administration. All the chips seem to be falling into place: She’s living with her best friend and reveling in her romance with Charlie Lawton, an up-and-coming Washington Post reporter.

However, soon after taking office, the administration finds itself deep in a red-hot scandal. President Wye’s old problem with the bottle re-emerges. His family is creating havoc. And an informant begins leaking damaging information. On top of it all, a secret deal with an Indian pharmaceutical company unleashes a fury that threatens the administration to its core. As Sammy fights to distance herself from professional turmoil, Charlie gets promoted and moves to New York. Can she hold her ground when her relationships, ideals, and ability to trust are all coming apart at the seams?

In Sammy’s House, Kristin Gore brings a novelist’s eye to the inner workings of the White House, giving hilarious insight and a fresh perspective on political life.

    " I gave this book a low rating, because it did not live up to my high expectations. I absolutely LOVED Sammy's Hill. The sequal is just a less funny, less interesting version of the original. "

    " A surprisingly good read. I did not read the first book by Gore, but really enjoyed the characters which I understand carry over from the first book. Ms. Gore has insight into the political life of staffers in DC, and her sense of humor adds delightful twists to the story. "

    " Although I think I liked the first book (Sammy's Hill) a little better, I still very much enjoyed this book - especially the main character who continues to be endearing. "

    " This was a cute book, but I much preferred the first book, Sammy's Hill. This one just seemed to be so unbelievable (did she get asked out by everyone?). Still, it was a quick read and I do like Sammy's character. Wonder if there will be a third one? "
