Review: Hope Never Dies by Andrew Shaffer

Want it now? Order it here!

I have been spoiled lately! Yet another five star read for me. I absolutely loved Andrew Shaffer’s buddy cop comedy, Hope Never Dies. If you like comedy, Biden memes, bromances, and police dramas, then this book is for you!


When Joe Biden’s favorite Amtrak conductor dies surrounded by mysterious, unsettling circumstances, his former bestie Barack Obama reaches out to him. Joe refuses to believe that his friend’s death was an accident, and decides to forge his on investigation. Barack joins forces with him, and the two set out on an epic journey to solve the possible murder.

Just Amazingness

How could you not like this book?! I was shocked reading so-so reviews on GoodReads. Duh, it’s campy. It’s supposed to be campy! This book was 100% everything I was expecting and then some. Just campy, wacky goodness full of wholesome Joe Biden and too-cool-for-school Barack. There were also plenty of digs at “the current administration”, which I got a good laugh out of.


I really hope Shaffer makes this into a series. I could see Obama and Biden making private investigation their hobby or getting involves in other mysterious adventures. They are seriously #friendshipgoals.

Get it on Kindle, paperback, or audiobook! 

Check out my GoodReads review and add me as a friend.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

That awkward moment when you’re attached extremely to fictional versions of POTUS44 and VP44…

This is a hilarious and fun buddy cop read. If you love Joe Biden memes, hope, and change, then this book is for you! Told from Joe’s POV, the two former best friends, Biden and Obama, head out on a mission to solve the case of the mysterious death of Joe’s favorite Amtrak conductor. The cast of characters is memorable, and the portrayal of Joe and Barack is both hilarious and hopefully accurate…
