Who has not thought about trading in a husband or wife - totally - for an evening? The burdens of adulthood are slowly crushing the life (but not the lust) out of Tom Visser, police chief of Birchfield, Massachusetts. His wife Patti, busy raising their three children, vibrates neither with Tom's angst nor his libido. Dr. Joan Stroker, an expert in Flemish counterpoint, is furiously writing an erotic novel that will make her the envy of academe. As her deadline approaches, Joan realizes she knows little about the art of love and even less about writing fiction. Her plight seems to amuse husband Marcus, a businessman besotted with French opera and, unbeknown to Joan, his mistress Wren. Enter libertine philosopher Cody Gunn and his delicious consort Lydia, who leave sunny Santa Monica to experience the rigors of New England. Lydia will be teaching heliotelepathy (whatever that is) at Birchfield Academy while Cody pens deep thoughts about the pilgrims. Bored silly within a week, Cody decides to open a swingers club in the Birchfield woods. When, miraculously, Tom and Joan convince their spouses to accompany them there, six formerly sane adults find themselves caught in a sexual typhoon far from harbor. As Priapus collides with Venus, their "no strings attached" couplings are hilarious, bawdy, full of wonder, and ultimately life changing. "Fifty Shades of Grey" times three!

Janice Weber grew up in Ridgewood, New Jersey and graduated summa cum laude from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York. At the time of her Carnegie Recital Hall debut at age nine, she was writing her first short stories. She has continued both pursuits, with her novels providing counterpoint to the staid world of a concert pianist, or perhaps with her recitals offsetting the staid world of a writer. She lives in Boston with her husband. An active soloist and chamber musician, she has performed at the White House, Carnegie Hall (the big one), Symphony Hall Boston, Wigmore Hall London, and major venues in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. Her eclectic recordings include the complete Rachmaninoff transcriptions, Messiaen’s “Quartet for the End of Time”, a disc of Leo Ornstein’s revolutionary piano works, and Liszt’s 1838 version of the Transcendental Etudes. Her most recent disc, “Cascade of Roses”, has a “rose” in each track, with rare appearances of Billy Mayerl’s dazzling “Evening Primrose” and Ernest de Regge’s “Variations on “The Last Rose of Summer.” Her novels happen between (and occasionally during) concerts. Music on some level infiltrates almost every book: Eva Hathaway writes hymns between amorous bouts, Floyd Beck met the love of his life at Carnegie Hall, Leslie Frost is a concert violinist, and Ross Major listens to Beethoven when the going gets rough. Characters without music fill the void with swinging, murder, and treason, activities musicians tend to eschew since that would detract from practice time.
