Pat Tucker has finally exposed the truth! While millions of men escape into their own little world’s during football season each year and leave their women to fend for themselves, the women often have a “game plan” of their own. In Tucker’s second foray into fiction, FOOTBALL WIDOWS (Atria Books/Strebor Books; October 2011; $15) gives a glimpse into the secret and unique lives of the women behind NFL coaches—game day takes on a whole new meaning as these lonely women turn up the heat off the field.
NFL wife B.J. Almond has had enough. When she walks in to find her head coach husband in bed with one of his assistant coaches’ wives, she is livid. But what really sets her off is when she discovers the other wives knew about the affair all along. Now she’s furious and hungry for revenge. And what better way to exact that revenge than to air everyone’s dirty laundry in a juicy tell-all book!
B.J. knows where all the bodies are buried, and she’s digging up all the dirt. But before she starts writing, she’s running up the score with a lawsuit against her husband and his mistress. Armed with flight records, copies of naughty emails, phone records, and pictures, B.J. isn’t holding back. And neither are the other football wives, who will stop at nothing to keep their dirty secrets from going public.
Secrets will be revealed, feelings will be hurt, and revenge will become the main pastime in FOOTBALL WIDOWS, instead of shopping for new Jimmy Choos with each other. Tucker, who is also author of the gut-wrenching Daddy by Default, does a great job of once again creating an entertaining, humorous look into the lives of unforgettable characters.
