Campaign Widows

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~




Synopsis (from Amazon):  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.



One (or more) Sentence Summary:  Perfect time of year to read with the elections coming up.  Very entertaining book and very much enjoyed it.  Campaign Widows would make one think twice about going into politics at such a demanding level. I would imagine for those involved in a presidential campaign the family is "left behind" for several months.  The stress on everyone must be extremely high. When you can't take any more of those campaign ads come October, shut off the television and pick up Campaign Widows.  You will enjoy it so much more!
