Party Favors: A Novel of Politics and Greed.

By Nicole Sexton with Susan Johnston

The Lyons Press, 241 pages, $24.95

Veteran Republican fund-raiser Nicole Sexton has co-authored a debut novel about Temple Sachet, a tenacious young female fundraiser for the Republican Party. With a note to readers assuring them that her characters are not based on real persons, Sexton--the former finance director of the National Republican Senatorial Committee--tracks the meteoric rise of the so-called "Big Money Babe of the Republican Senate," as Sachet works her way up from White House intern to the second most powerful lobbyist in Washington.
