  • Jennifer  Ricketts (Donnie Darko Girl)
    I won this book for free from the giveaways here on Goodreads. This typically isn't the kind of book I normally would choose to read--if I had seen this at a bookstore, I probably wouldn't have even picked it up to read what it was about.

    I loved this book! Abigail is the kind of person we all want to have working in the government. She didn't ask for the job and because she promised not to run for office she isn't making her decisions based on what will get her re-elected. She does what she feels is right and sticks with it.

    Before Abby's sister, a long-serving Senator, dies, she makes the governor promise to appoint Abby to serve out her term, which comes as a shock to Abby. Abby's actually a doctor but is okay with filling her sister's shoes for the remaining months in her term, as she does well under pressure and thi...

    I expected a political satire. I got something much deeper, much more convincing and interesting, entertaining, and even thought-provoking when I read Dixie Swanson’s The Accidental Senator.The story opens with one sister caring for the other as the ravages of cancer bring once-active life to a...
