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 roommates, 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.
