When Milwaukee wife and mother MJ Boudreaux notices her husband Chris seems more interested in the casino than her, she’s bothered that she isn’t more upset about it. So MJ picks up poker as a way for them to spend more time together. Although it doesn’t give her the hoped-for quality time with Chris, MJ has a knack for the game. Intoxicated with newfound freedom, she may find the stakes are higher than she thought.


Customer Reviews

“An enjoyable and thought-provoking exploration of a modern-day marriage in midlife crisis.”

— Kirkus Reviews

“Reichert’s second novel, after the popular The Coincidence of Coconut Cake (2015), will appeal to readers who enjoy a lighter look at self-discovery, family, and friendship.”

— Booklist

“Laugh-out-loud, hold-on-to-your-panties women's fiction. The characters are game for anything when it comes to getting back what they think they have lost. Reichert is a talented author.”
