About the Book:
Rachel Klein is sacked from her job at the White House after she sends an email criticizing Donald Trump. As she is escorted off the premises she is hit by a speeding car, driven by what the press will discreetly call "a personal friend of the President." Does that explain the flowers, the get-well wishes at a press briefing, the hush money offered by a lawyer at her hospital bedside? Rachel’s recovery is soothed by comically doting parents, matchmaking room-mates, a new job as aide to a journalist whose books aim to defame the President, and unexpected love at the local wine store. But secrets leak, and Rachel’s new-found happiness has to make room for more than a little chaos. Will she bring down the President? Or will he manage to do that all by himself? Rachel to the Rescue is a mischievous political satire, with a delightful cast of characters, from one of America’s funniest novelists.

My Review:
This book is a little bit of everything. It is women's fiction, romance, humour and contemporary. I really enjoyed every aspect of it. Rachel was a great character and I couldn't help but cheer her on. Elinor Lipman manages to take themes that are often covered - a love story, a young woman coming into her own - and somehow manages to make them fresh. I loved all the characters, even the secondary ones. They were fully developed and all of them authentic.

I thoroughly enjoyed all the ups and downs, you really live through Rachel's experience and I liked how the author managed to make it real without bumming me out. I really loved the ending too, it left me feeling warm inside ad with a smile on my face. From the first page to the last a very entertaining read.

Thank you NetGalley, Elinor Lipman and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt - Mariner Books for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
