Something unexpected happens to four women in the Lonely Hearts Book Club in the suburban neighborhood of Pleasant Acres in Grapevine, Texas. At the book club to discuss Fifty Shades of Grey, CEO Marnie convinces the women to hire “The Pool Boy,” a heartthrob medical student who works as a pool boy during the summer. He’s come into their lives at just the right time: CEO Marnie, rich widow Scarlet, divorced stay-at-home mom Lacy and bored preacher’s wife Peggy get the hottest summer of their lives with the help of pristine pools and enlightenment as they learn to stand up for themselves and search for something more. What looked to be a hot, lonely summer could turn into the best summer yet.
In this "Hung" meets "Desperate Housewives" short story, Malena Lott gives us her usual humor and heart in a character-driven tale that will resonate with women who have ever gone through heartbreak and wondered how to find joy again.
