Sammy's Hill Publisher's Summary

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?

    In this incisive comedy, late 20-something Sammy Joyce, a hypochondriac, klutz, and jumper-to-conclusions, is in the White House as a health-care advisor to the newly elected administration. All her 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, and Charlie gets promoted to a job in New York.
