A cheating spouse sparks the creation of a monthly dinner club as the heroine attempts to have an affair of her own.
After Mary Ann’s husband cheats on her, the suburban mom decides to have her own affair. She starts up a neighbourhood dinner club as a cover and invites three men she has earmarked as potential lovers. Along for the ride is her best friend, Alice, who has recently returned with her young daughter to Oakdale, the cozy bedroom community where the two women grew up and briefly shared a telepathic past. Over good food and wine, new friendships develop, new dreams simmer, Mary Ann pursues her affair candidates, and Alice opens her heart and mind to ways out of her single-working-mother social rut. The stars align on the night the core dinner club members consume an aphrodisiac, go to a local dive bar, hit the dance floor, and rock their worlds. Appetizing fare for readers who like their fiction sharp and witty with a strong dash of spice, The Oakdale Dinner Club is a suburban comedy of manners that proves it’s never too late to start over.
