From the author of the “clever, creative, and sweetly delicious” (Kirkus ReviewsThe Coincidence of Coconut Cake comes a novel about a frustrated wife and mother who hatches a scheme to reignite her marriage—and risks everything in a gamble she hopes is a sure bet.

When Milwaukee-area wife and mother MJ Boudreaux notices her husband Chris seems more interested in the casino than her, she’s more bothered that she isn’t upset than by her husband’s absence. She picks up poker as a way for them to spend more time together—and reignite their marital flame.

Although the game doesn’t give her the quality time with Chris that she’d hoped, MJ finds she has a knack for it. Increasingly unhappy at home, she turns to the felt top of the poker table for comfort. Intoxicated with newfound freedom, MJ begins spending more time at the gambling tables and less with her family, finally carving out for herself a place outside her role of wife and mother.

After a string of great wins, MJ finds herself in Vegas, attracting the attention of a certain magnetic poker star. But when she’s forced to choose between her family and her new exciting lifestyle, the stakes may be higher than she thought and MJ will have to play her hand carefully…or risk losing it all.

When time allows, she loves to read, collect more cookbooks than she could possibly use, and test the limits of her DVR.


I am in LOVE with Riechert.  She is a brilliant storyteller that adds heart, humor and of course yummy bakes goods into the mix.  She kept me guessing and how she fleshed out the characters was fascinating.  This is a story that will make a great summer read, a great book club choice and a book you will certainly want to talk to somebody about!  Grab it now and get reading!!!  5 stars
