I love Nicolle Wallace's MSNBC show, so I decided to read her trilogy about powerful women in federal government. The first book, Eighteen Acres, was terrific; the 2nd, It's Classified, I had to force myself to finish, and now with Madam President, I quit reading after 30 pages. A prominent characters from the 1st one barely features in the 2nd and 3rd; a major character from the 2nd one is fired at the end, but the 3rd one introduces a new character who seems to have retroactively replaced the fired one. If you're saying "Huh?" at this point, that's my point exactly. Should have quit after the first one, Nicolle!

The last book in Nicolle Wallace's trilogy about women running DC.

It was likely written during Nicolle Wallace's failed stint on the View and after her son was born.

Charlotte Kramer has a new Democratic VP. Melanie Kingston is still Defense Secretary, married, and pregnant. Dale Smith has been appointed press secretary and has a new love interest. Charlotte is re-united with her husband.

The book centers on one day in the life of Pres. Kramer filmed by a CBS anchor duet. It blows up when terrorists repeat 9-11 in Miami, DC, NYC, Chicago, and LA. A series of somewhat confusing flash-backs and flash-forwards flush out the story.

The trilogy is pure Nicolle Wallace. If you love her show on MSNBC, you'll love the books. I highly recommend reading them together.

A network gets the chance to document a routine day in the life of the West Wing and the Old Executive Building, when it turns out to be anything but routine for not one but five terrorist attacks happen on US soil. Making things more interesting are the President, a woman, who that day is making a major flip-flop on the abortion issue; the press secretary who is sleeping with the First Gentleman; and a defense secretary who is rushing to get home from the Middle East when she discovers mid-flight that she is unexpectedly pregnant. Complicating things further is one of the First Daughters, who can't help keeping her opinions about her mother to herself on Facebook. All of these add up to a fast paced book where the unexpected becomes reality and heartbreak happens in the worst places - and how a President has to make important decisions under the tightest pressures.

Fast-paced and interesting look at the White House in a time of crisis, both personally for our main characters and as a nation. Old hurts and rivalries, friendships and relationships, and professional desires rise to the top on the day the White House has agreed to let a film crew follow key staffers, including the president (who just happens to be female) -- the same day a series of coordinated attacks on the US are launched. Much less about politics than about the people involved.
