Description
It's an election season gone wild in this "irresistible" (Cosmopolitan) and "whip-smart" (Us Weekly) novel about a delicious cast of characters who forge an unlikely friendship while their significant others are out on the campaign trail.
Cady Davenport is living the American dream...

At least she's supposed to be. She's in a new city, with a new job and even a new fiancé. But when her husband-to-be hits the road for the upcoming presidential election, Cady realizes she's on her own—and that her dream life might not be all she'd imagined.
Until she finds herself thrust straight into the heart of the most influential inner circle in Washington, DC: the campaign widows. As friends, they're an unlikely group—a fabulous Georgetown doyenne; a speechwriter turned mommy blogger; an artsy website editor; and a First Lady Hopeful who's not convinced she wants the job. But they share one undeniable bond: their spouses are all out on the trail during a hotly contested election season.
Cady is unsure of her place in their illustrious group, but with the pressures of the unprecedented election mounting, the widows' worlds keep turning—faster than ever—as they hold down the fort while running companies, raising babies, racking up page views and even reinventing themselves. And their friendship might be just what Cady needs to find the strength to pursue her own happiness.

        Starred review from April 1, 2018
        Agresti's first novel for adults hits the right balance of Washington insiderness and women's fiction. It's the 2016 presidential election, and the lives of five campaign widows (women and men whose significant others are temporarily lost to the campaign trail) intersect in D.C. Cady took a lower-paying TV producer job to be closer to fianc´┐Ż Jackson, but her newfound success doesn't seem to impress him. Reagan is juggling her toddler twins with writing a parenting column, but she's occasionally drawn back into her old, speechwriting world. Jay is a culture editor at Queue, but he manages to get his best writer and boyfriend a gig following the campaign of Rocky Haze, the female rapper who is suddenly the frontrunner. Birdie Brandwyine, wife of campaign-strategy superstar Buck, won't let a little marital discord interfere with her legendary fundraisers, while potential future first lady Madison Goodfellow is more than willing to work with the opposition. There are no direct, real-life matches for Agresti's well-developed characters, which makes for a breezy read. Combining domestic and romantic foibles with an enticing cast (they may be widowed, but they are not staying home waiting for their men), Agresti's smart beach read will ease readers into the 2018 election season.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2018, American Library Association.)
