In Luck, Love & Lemon Pie, MJ Boudreaux is a wife and mother in Milwaukee. She notices that her husband is more interested in gambling, then spending time with her (including missing their anniversary). So she decides to go to the source, and starts playing poker as well in order to spend time with him.
MJ realizes that she has talent, so she enters a competition and wins. Her prize is a trip to Vegas to compete in a tournament and meet a famous poker star. While in Vegas, MJ has to decide between her family and the fabulous lifestyle she encounters in Vegas.
I really enjoyed the first novel of Amy Reichert’s, The Coincidence of Coconut Cake, so I was very excited when I heard she was coming out with a second novel. Unfortunately, this novel did not have the charm of the first, and I found myself disappointed. It wasn’t a bad book at all, just not as good as the first. But, the pie recipe at the end looks delicious and I can’t wait to try it out!
