Recently divorced, 40-something single-mom, Lucy, is lonely, bored and craving physical connection. So, when her trusted long-time married friend, Nancy, begs Lucy to sleep with her husband to save her marriage, Lucy goes for it. It's such a success, the two friends invent a town-wide underground barter system whereby Nancy's married girlfriends sub-contract Lucy's divorcee friends to sleep with their husbands so they don't have to as often. It's a win, win, win- for a while. Then it all goes to hell in a hand-basket.
Laugh-out-loud funny, emotionally provocative and at times racy, Nookietown is a story of risk-taking, marriage, honesty and desire, and what one woman rationalizes in order to get what she wants.
“I just. Want. To get. Laid,” said Lucy. Her married friends hadn’t heard her put it quite that way before.
“There are lots of single men out there,” said Nancy.
“No, there are not,”...
Praise for Nookietown
"With vivid characters, quick dialogue, and over-the-top situations, Chickering's debut novel alternates between moments of true hilarity and deep introspection." —Kirkus Reviews
"Chickering holds nothing back in this debut that can only be described as a Fifty Shades of Grey for the married and divorced set. She dives in with a plethora of graphic sex scenes, creating a blend of erotica with a strong dose of women's fiction. Sure to be a hit among women seeking a feisty, thrilling, and risqué read." —Library Journal
