Hello Tall Poppy Readers!
Today we reveal the vibrant cover for Amy E. Reichert’s sophomore book, LUCK, LOVE & LEMON PIE (Gallery, July 2016). We can’t wait to get our hands on this scrumptious new book, plus Amy is giving away a copy of THE COINCIDENCE OF COCONUT CAKE. See below for details.
From the author of the “clever, creative, and sweetly delicious” (Kirkus Reviews) THE COINCIDENCE OF COCONUT CAKE comes a novel about an exasperated wife and mother who makes a play to reignite her marriage—and risks everything in a gamble she hopes is a sure bet.
When Milwaukee-area MJ Boudreaux notices her husband Chris seems more interested in the casino than in spending time together, she’s more bothered by her own apathy than by his absence. So she picks up poker as a way for them to spend more time together—and rekindle their marital flame.
Although the game doesn’t provide the quality time with Chris that she’d hoped for, MJ finds she has an uncanny knack for it. Increasingly unhappy at home and intoxicated with newfound freedom, MJ escapes to the felt for comfort and spends less and less time with her family.
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. MJ must play her hand carefully…or risk losing it all.
In LUCK, LOVE & LEMON PIE, poker provides an unexpected jolt of excitement in MJ’s life, as well as an escape from the monotony of day-to-day tasks. To enter the giveaway for a copy of THE COINCIDENCE OF COCONUT CAKE, let us know in the comments what you do to add a little thrill in your life? We’ll randomly pick a winner next Monday.
