Didier Van Cauwelaert is the author of several international bestsellers, including the critically acclaimed One-Way. I certainly missed knowing about the original book when it came out, so am glad the publishers did this, or I would have missed out on a great book.

Cauwelaert's idea for this book WAS outstanding, however I don't feel as if he spent enough time on it and the development of the story itself was poor.

I loved this book. It almost didn't get read because I am so not into politics, but that would have been a mistake. The author portrays the Republican and Democratic parties accurately, but without much bias or finger pointing. The honesty of the openly gay Democratic candidate was refreshing and how she put the anti-gays in their place with what comes to be termed Homo-spanked, leaves me wishing it were all real. However, you can ignore all that and just enjoy the rapport between the lead characters. Their wit, sass and banter won me over from the beginning and I found myself reading in bed at 2:00 in the morning, biting my lip in an attempt to keep from laughing out loud and waking my partner. The made up names at the lesbian bar had me practically rolling on the floor, starting with the name of the bar itself. The lesbian author they meet at the bar is one of a kind. All characters have baggage and theirs was mentioned, but not harped on in any way. The escapades of spying was priceless. If this were a movie, instead of written word I would have had to pause and rewind numerous times due to laughing over parts of it. It's fun, witty, intelligent and romantic. What ever you do, do not read this on your kindle phone app during an important meeting, in a library, in class or anywhere you need to remain quiet. Everyone who reads lesbian fiction (and even some who don't) should read this book so don't wait any longer. Buy it and read it.

There are several laugh out loud moments in this story about the growing attraction of a liberal Democratic Congresswoman from Virginia and a campaign staffer working for her opponent. Moody is particularly adept at writing slapstick comedy scenes and outrageously funny banter. If you're feeling like a romantic comedy would hit the spot, go for this book.

It's completely understandable that when you aim for these kind of silly places, sometimes you swing and miss. While the dialogue between the two romantic leads usually hits the mark, the banter between the campaign staffer and her roommate often borders on the silly or even the unbelievable. Also, long passages about politics often slow the read down and feel a little out of place even for political junkies like me.

Moody gets high marks in the diversity department. Her campaign staffer is South Asian and the roommate African American. This is a welcome departure from the very white world of lesfic romance.

Fun summer reading with a healthy dose of politics thrown in for those like me who love the stuff.
Nothing personal
I have read Ms. Moody's other 2 books and enjoyed them, but this one stands above the others in terms of characters, plotting and humor. This book is laugh aloud hilarious at moments. While there is no extensive back-story provided on the characters and there is no lesbian angst (either for the outing of a character or the death or loss of a partner), the book is not without depth. Here the deeper issues are presented hand-in-hand with humor.

And the escapades of Bijal in trying to walk the line of spying on the oppolsition while falling love with the opposing candidate take on a slapstick element. The skulking, spying scene which originates from the previous night's drunken conviviality at the local lesbian bar which in turn is the result of Bijal trying to drown her sorrow at her candidate remaining on a live mike after a press conference has ended.... Well, you get the picture. This book would make a wonderful romantic comedy. Read and chuckle along at Bijal and her antics.

This is the third book by Colette Moody that I have read and though not her best work. (The Seduction Of Moxie is her best work in my opinion) It's obivious that the political issues in the story was very important to Ms. Moody and though I do agree with a lot of what she says, I felt that once she got up on the soapbox, she found it hard to step down. Which is cool but the story suffered for it. Bijah Rao, a sexy, wise cracking indian-american political researcher is working for a republician mayor that's trying to unseat the current congresswoman, Colleen O'Bannon. A democrat and openly gay. She's also the only honest politician in the free world. The two meet in an elevator and the sparks fly. The story is a long, slow burn towards romance and a conflict of interest. As always with Ms. Moody, the diaolog was witty and faced paced. The two main characters were engaging and entertaining. Though they seemed all to familiar to me. (Violet and Moxie came to mind) Still, it was a good book and an enjoyable read.

I read this quite a while ago but felt it was worth it to drop a few lines about it.

DEFINITELY worth purchasing! This was one of the best purchases I've made in years. I put it up there with K.E. Lane's "And Playing the Role of Herself..." and "Bliss" by Fiona Zedde.

Funny as hell. Ridiculously awesome characterization. Very descriptive, I felt like I was in the middle of D.C. and all the drama. Beautiful women who also seem like women I could chill with. Smart, witty dialogue. I'm a sucker for smart women and Bigal (my favorite) is just that. Not to mention the whole Indian decent thing. <-- a weakness. And HOT. I haven't laughed this long in a loooong, long time.

Bigal is one of the few character in fiction that if I could, I'd magically make her a real person. Funny. as. hell.

Parties in Congress is the funniest book I've read in a very, very long time. I never write reviews but this book was outstanding. The term: "laugh out loud" is a perfect description. I've been reading books by lesbian authors for years and years and this one made me want to wish that it would go on forever. I can hardly wait for Moody to write another one. Kudos to such profoundly funny woman.

This is a well written, very funny romance that has highly likable, intelligent characters who frequently engage in delightfully witty banter. I loved reading this book and highly recommend it. I loved reading this book so much, I'm off in search of other books written by this author.
