Spotlight and Giveaway: Nookietown

We love the last name of the author whose book we're featuring today because it starts with "chick." (And her first name is cool for all fans of another author named V.C....) Check out Nookietown, the debut novel of V.C. Chickering that just published yesterday! Thanks to St. Martin's Press, readers in the US and/or Canada have THREE chances to win!

A funny, emotional and at times racy novel about a service connecting married men (with their wives' consent!) and divorced women. TV rights already sold to Warner Brothers!

Nookietown is the story of two friends-Lucy, divorced, and Nancy, long-time married, and what happens when Nancy asks Lucy to sleep with her husband to save the marriage. Together they discover that most of the wives in town are bored of having sex with their husbands. It seems they wish someone else would jump in once and a while and take up the slack, someone they could trust to not break up their marriage but occasionally satisfy the imbalance of desire. The husbands in town would give anything for a little sexual variety, and the divorcees in town are crazy-horny but striking out online and don't want a serious commitment.

Lucy, Nancy and their friends embark on a barter business arrangement with other adventurous wives and divorcees in town wherein the wives sub-contract the divorcees of their choosing to sleep with their husbands. The divorcees are vetted to make sure they have no interest in breaking up marriages and the wives get to decide how often, with whom, and what will and won't transpire. It's a win-win-win. For a little while. Then it all goes to hell in a hand-basket.

Nookietown is a racy romp that pushes buttons. It's about married sex, divorced sex, monogamy, infidelity, truth, desire and shifting allegiances between friends. But most importantly, it's funny. Ask yourself, "Would I sign up for The Program?" Then ask your friends if they would. Your friends may surprise you. You may even surprise yourself!​

The only thing I can think of trading with someone was old jewelry to a pawn shop to buy something I saw in one of their showcases. When I was younger, me and my friend used to share clothes. But they were always given back afterwards (except for the one girl who decided to leave town with a bundle of my good stuff).

I used to trade and share books many times since we were all readers and enjoyed the chance to read friends books.

I was a huge fan of VC Andrews when I was much younger. Now, I only read occasionally.

I have traded books, clothes and once a teenage boyfriend who thought he was getting away with something until we agreed right in front of him and both later broke up with him.

I've never read VC Andrews, but when I was younger it seemed that everybody else was.

My friends and I share books. We have a reading circle where
we pass round the books we have read. Then we donate the book
to a local Library.
