MJ is a wife that keeps the household going, kids to school and their activities, and meets at a coffee-shop with other women about her age. Chris, MJ's husband, works and his hobby is playing poker which he spends quite a bit of time doing. MJ has hit that stage in her life where things are just routine and she wants to put the sparkle back into her marriage. MJ comes up with a plan to learn poker so she and Chris can spend more time together. When the plan does not has the result that MJ was looking for, she works another but this plan is one where, when she bets, she may lose it all. A good, quick read.
