Luck, Love & Lemon Pie
Luck, Love & Lemon Pie | Amy E. Reichert
From the author of the “clever, creative, and sweetly delicious” (Kirkus Reviews) The 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.

2 stars This was just all over the place. I liked a few parts but mostly it was just okay.

Luck in the title: Luck, Love, and Lemon Pie. Could also be used for pie. Or recipe. Too bad it wasn‘t that good of a book. #bookishbingo

Not the greatest book, but I rarely bail on a book. Married couple, on the rocks, gambling, lemon pie, Vegas. But it satisfies Wisconsin or Nevada.

Alls the feels were had with this book... on the surface it‘s about a middle-aged woman trying to keep her marriage intact but at it‘s core it is about remembering who you are as a person and what do you hold important! Plus, it made me want lemon pie really badly!! 😋

Cute book. It was aimed for slightly above my age bracket but I still enjoyed it.

So I try not to complain on here, but this just happened to me. I was in a packed waiting room reading. This mother and teenage daughter sat on either side of me because they were the only seats left. Had I been paying attention to the family dynamic and not reading I would have given up my seat to let them sit together but I digress... it's quiet for a minute and I hear one say "hand me my lip gloss" and the other proceeds to right over my book!

kricheal It was so ridiculous, even though I didn't say anything to them when it happened, my face is just not capable of hiding my emotions. 😂😂😂😂 They knew they messed up. 2y

Not a bad book, but not in my recommendation list neither. Perfect if you have some audiobook time while doing other stuff. As often, I noticed myself talkng to the MC when doing stupid stuff:-) That is for me the sign I enjoyed it:-) A three star novel. Book 9/275

Not your typical #romantsy, this was still a fun read, refreshing in that it features older women, who know what they want and then struggle go get it. I liked the characters, all the bits about poker, and of course the happy ending.

I had high hopes for this one, but it was kind of all over the place. An entertaining enough metro read, but won't be one of the year's best.

Has anyone else won anything from Goodreads? If so what? So far I've won 3.

This was so cute and enjoyable! Fluffy rom-com read. Also the protagonist is in her 40s so that was a nice perspective to have.
