Cover Breakdown: Amy E. Reichert's Luck, Love & Lemon Pie

It's Tuesday and we're getting ready to kick off the first official day here at the RT Booklover's Convention in Las Vegas! Since we're sittin' pretty in Sin City, we can't think of a better subject for a cover breakdown than Amy E. Reichert's Luck, Love & Lemon Pie, available in July. We're sure after a few days here, we'll totally be like main character MJ, a Milwaukee-area wife who becomes a bona fide poker star. 

To the blurb!

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.
