Synopsis: Samantha (Sammy) Joyce is hard-working, idealistic and extremely competent - as well as just a little bit of a daydreamer. In between practising for life after sudden loss of a limb, attack by a bear or other potentially unforeseen dramas, she throws herself into her job as a health care analyst for a junior Ohio senator. In the midst of her lobbying and late night dinners, Sammy meets speechwriter Aaron Driver who is gorgeous, sweet and smart. The only problem is that he works for another senator, in competition with Sammy's boss.
Review: 'Al and Tipper's daughter is a well-established comedy writer and this, her debut novel is as sparky and well-paced as it is undeniably informed... an unexpectedly individual and authentic comic voice.' - The Observer. 'Sammy's Washington [is] an electric town full of Machiavellian schemers, principled idealists, backstabbing diplomats, determined romantics, and one intuitive telemarketer. Gore is a child of the Hill, and she knows her town; the result of her light and juicy tale is, for better or worse, an absurd and convincing rendering of everyday life in the political jungle.' - O, the Oprah Magazine. 'Sammy's Hill is a laugh-out-loud literary debut, certain to draw comparisons to Bridget Jones's Diary.' - Newsweek. 'It shouldn't come as a great surprise that the first novel by Kristin Gore, daughter of Al Gore, is laugh-out-loud funny.' - San Francisco Chronicle.
