Coming soon — info about our own new women’s upmarket fiction novel — Triptych: All In
Three mismatched suburban couples, Steve and Katie, Marty and Erin, and Scarlett and C. Thomas, have been neighbors and friends for years. During a pummeling Connecticut Nor’Easter, the members of the bored triptych engage in a friendly game of Texas Hold’em in front of the fire over several bottles of Merlot. The impromptu get-together eventually leads to the institution of rousing, alcohol-driven, bi-weekly poker nights.
One evening on a lark, someone suggests an alternate payout – instead of playing for pocket change, the winner may choose a player (other than his or her own spouse) with whom to spend the night in a remote cabin. What happens there stays there. After a few hairy eyebrows, nervous laughter, and some initial resistance, the proposition takes shape; but complications arise as these things will.
All too quickly, friendships are strained and relationships begin to crumble. Lies are told, truths are exposed, and feelings are hurt. In the end, can anyone bear the weight of this wanton self-indulgence? They are six fully consenting adults, and this was supposed to be just for fun – a goof. No one could possibly get hurt; after all, it’s only a game. Or is it?
