    Meh. Fine. I honestly couldn?t keep the characters straight. It was interesting enough... I think I just kept reading bc I liked seeing how many of the restaurants and bars I?d been to. 2.5 Stars. ...

    I wish this book had been written by someone with experience in politics and presidential campaigns- I think it would have been so much better. Instead it was pure chick lit that avoided any mention of politics despite it being set in a presidential election. I was looking for somethin...

    4.5 Red White & Blue Stars! I was really impressed with this novel from Aimee Agresti - to write a political themed novel in today's tumultuous climate and write a book focused around election season that appeals to all readers regardless of affiliation and manages to make the k...

    A dishy, fun political memoir about the women (and men) behind those working for or married to presidential hopefuls. Great beach read. Lots of fun characters- but a lot of characters to remember. Read with a pen in hand! 3.5/5. ...

    Campaign Widows is an entertaining and occasionally pointed book about a group of friends left alone in D.C. while their significant others are on the presidential campaign trail in one capacity or another. The book is very funny, timely, and includes a fantastic cast of characters. I'...

    3.5 stars This is the perfect book for a hot summer day while lounging by the pool drinking cool drinks. The political angle keeps it entertaining along with the interesting characters. This is about a group of friends who are bound by their loneliness while their husbands/partners...

    Campaign Widows almost needs two different summaries, since it's basically two different stories shoved together... The first 100+ pages of the book give a glimpse of a wild election season in Washington, DC---all told in fast-paced Newsroom-style vignettes from the viewpoints of di...

    Thank you Edelweiss+ for this advanced eGalley of Campaign Widows. Election season brings forth emotional turmoil among an eclectic group of Washington politicals. So, there are a ton of characters in this story. For the first couple of chapters, I was confused as to what exactl...

    This story revolves around the wives/significant others who are "widowed" while the 'politicians' go on the road campaigning in a hot presidential race. These four women bond over their relationship and parenting troubles, giving advice and shoulders to lean on. I enjoyed their inter...

    ?Sex and the City meets The West Wing? said the blurb....I?m not sure the dialogue is quite as whip-smart as the Aaron Sorkin?s but I definitely had a similarly huge amount of affection for all of this book?s characters as I did with these two shows. This is more accurately ?...

    Thank you to NetGalley.com for the opportunity to read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. Political fluff!!! Even though American politics are a joke for either party these days, Campaign Widows is a light, romantic, funny romp through the elec...

    FULL REVIEW: https://shihtzusandbookreviews.com/ca... This is a story of A Girl Who Judged A Book By It's Cover. I was browsing Netgalley and voting on book covers and saw a beautiful red, white and blue book that caught my eye. Once I read the synopsis, I was sold. Now, I know a...

    4.5 American Stars! Thank you to Wunderland PR for sending me a copy of this book! I started this book on the 4th of July because it seemed appropriate. I mean, look at that cover, isn't it GORGEOUS? Cady has just moved for her fiance who is part of a political team for the up...

    I received this book for free from the publisher (Harlequin) as part of their bookstagram publicity campaign. I give this book 3.5 stars which rounds up to 4. This book and I got off to a rocky start. In the beginning, I had a hard time connecting with the book and the character...

    I really enjoyed this book, and think the comparison to a cross between Sex and the City and West Wing is accurate. I like that the "campaign widows" become friends, and I enjoyed the variety of careers and roles in the campaign cycle each character had. I also have a deep love for Was...

    Light-hearted take on election season. I usually like chick lit and I was drawn by the "Sex and the City meets West Wing" tag, but I wasn't getting into it and couldn't tell the characters apart. It's not horrible - I'd probably power through it if I had gotten it for review on my blog...

    If I've learned anything from this book it's that I totally would not fit in with the the DC crowd... although I do have to say I think the characters are definitely on the nicer spectrum of the 'political wives' club - and in all honesty I have a hard time believing people this nice e...

    Thanks to the publisher for this review copy! What a dishy political read! I spent the entire book comparing characters to real politicians and celebrities and getting lost in the drama. The group of friends is so diverse, but they fit together perfectly once all of the pieces are r...

    I?m not one to get too wrapped up with politics and I rarely read books based on the subject, but I knew just from reading the blurb of this one that it would be a fun read and I was right! While politicians and a crazy presidential race is the basis for the plot, this is also a supe...

    This was a really good story about how 3 people whose spouses or significant others get caught up in a Presidential campaign and how they cope with the absence of those people in their lives. The friendships that developed in this book were great and I loved the different points of ...

    Thank you so much Wunderkind PR and Harlequin Books for providing my free copy of CAMPAIGN WIDOWS by Aimee Agresti - all opinions are my own. I don?t usually go for the light read, but I absolutely loved this ?Sex and the City goes to Washington DC? story! It?s fun, smart, ...

    I LOVED THIS BOOK. Aimee Agresti has an infinitely readable writing style I can only compare to Liane Moriarty. You get attached to these characters and you come to care about them and their plight really easily. Even their foibles become forgivable before you know it. You root for ...

    I really enjoyed this story, although I did struggle at times w/ figuring out which characters significant other was supporting each of the candidates, but that didn't stop me from loving the story. It was fun to get a glimpse behind the scenes of a presidential campaign, even if it is...

    I would categorize this book as political chick-lit (who knew there was such a thing?), heavy on the chick-lit with a few dashes of politics thrown in. There are a few themes in this book; female empowerment, the persuasive nature of feminine wiles, women's traditional and more contemp...

    Washington, DC during a presidential election. A fictional look inside the campaign drama. The women aren't actually widows. Their husbands are just married to their campaign trail. These women form a friendship that I loved. It was like a political housewives. Funny, smart and enterta...
