When Judy loses her job to a younger woman and her husband to golf at a posh Connecticut country club, she refuses to sit around the pool with the other "golf widows."

From the Publisher
Judy Price's life is to die for. She has a handsome husband with bullish prospects on Wall Street, a career as a cookbook editor, her own BMW, and a landmark house on two sylvan acres in affluent Chesterfield County, Connecticut. But lately, she's been having sexual fantasies about the air conditioner repair man. When Judy is downsized by her company and can't find another job, Hunt suggests she hang around The Oaks and "network." The trouble is, she chafes at the rules at the Club, where she's banned from the Men's Grill and the "visually eventful" 18-hole golf course, consigned to B-list tennis, overcooked dinners in the main dining room, and the gossip of other golf widows. What's more, the Club's idea of multiculturalism is an all-white band playing Motown's greatest hits at the Memorial Day Dance. Judy finds an unexpected ally in Claire Cox, America's foremost feminist, who has broken the Club's iron-clad rule against admitting single women. There are lots of things about The Oaks Claire wants to change - until she's found dead in a sand trap on the golf course - bludgeoned with the golf pro's pitching wedge. When ruggedly handsome local detective Tom Cunningham asks Judy to secretly investigate, she finds herself changing from a conventional wife into a daring woman - one willing to risk her life to bring a killer to justice and a husband to his senses.
