Campaign Widows

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.

Praise for Campaign Widows:

“Agresti’s first novel for adults hits the right balance of Washington insiderness and women’s fiction…. There are no direct, real-life matches for Agresti’s well-developed characters, which makes for a breezy read. Combining domestic and romantic foibles with an enticing cast (they may be “widowed,” but they are not staying home waiting for their men), Agresti’s smart beach read will ease readers into the 2018 election season.” –Booklist
