When a gorgeous woman appears at the gates of the White House bearing a mysterious letter, disgraced presidential press secretary and professional spinmeister Jonah Eastman knows that his past has finally caught up with him. Raised by a Jewish mobster in Atlantic City, Jonah was only seventeen when he met Claudine Polk, an unabashed Southern belle, and placed her on an unshakable pedestal for one glorious summer of reckless youth and first love. 

Now Claudine desperately needs Jonah's help to save Rattle & Snap, her family's plantation in Tennessee, from the hands of her crooked soon-to-be-ex-husband. Jonah must use all his connections, from shady undercover agents to the president himself, to engage in Operation Dixie Knish and save his Southern belle's ancestral home. 

A perfect mix of The West Wing, The Godfather, and Gone with the Wind, Spinning Dixie is an epic novel full of adventure, romance, and unforgettable characters that will have readers laughing out loud.
