Sammy’s Hill (Gore, Kristin)(2004, paperback)

Regular price $6.00

Smart, hardworking and idealistic, Samantha Joyce is making her mark in Washington as a brilliant young analyst for an up and coming senator. But Sammy is also a tad eccentric. Ever since she was a child she’s been obsessed with being prepared for anything, from fending off a sudden attack by wild animals on the run from the nearby zoo to practising dressing for work with only one arm, just in case. And when she’s not rushing her Japanese fighting fish off for emergency resuscitation or making time to celebrate significant events like the 29th anniversary of ‘The Partridge Family’ series finale, she’s encouraging her favourite telemarketers to call more often.

When Sammy falls for Aaron, a devastatingly handsome hotshot speech writer for a rival senator, she manages to juggle lobbying and the high stakes of a presidential election campaign with late night assignations like a pro, until she mistakingly broadcasts an email message meant form Aaron involving whipped cream and lingerie to 200 power players in Washington. But when the going gets really tough, Sammy proves she’s better than all the rest by standing up for what she believes in - and beating the boys at their own game.
