Bunco: A Comedy About The Drama Of Friendship

 ~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis:  We all have “those” friends.  Maybe you’ve known them since childhood, or met in college, or while waiting for a child’s practice to end. Maybe you found yourself living on the same street. There’s no single path to friendship. Relationships don’t follow a script and neither do the lives of smart, funny, complicated suburban women.

Jill, Anne, Mary, and Rachel met years ago through a neighborhood group that regularly got together to play a dice game called bunco. Although players have come and gone, they continue to use bunco as an excuse to abandon their day-to-day responsibilities and enjoy food, drinks, and the company of their best friends. 

When new neighbors move in under the cover of night, the foursome sees an opportunity to expand their bunco circle. But within hours, suspicions run rampant as the odd behaviors of the newest residents are interpreted differently. Are they quirky, or kinky? Diabolical, or misunderstood? Time after time, as the truth sheds light on some secrets, more emerge. Each woman finds herself shocked by the friends she thought she knew.

Through the friendly banter, intimate confessions, and tongue-twisting insults, you may see yourself or your friends in these characters. Wipe away tears of laughter and loss as you join the four metaphorical rounds of bunco, and feel part of the conversation. Whether engaging in playful exploits, providing unconditional support, making uncomfortable sacrifices, or winding up in handcuffs again, these ladies are those rarest of friends who become true family. Of course, families don’t follow a script either, unless it is a plot-twisting, slightly off-color comedy about the drama of friendship. And bunco, sort of.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: LOVED IT!  I was told Bunco: A Comedy About the Drama of Friendship was a mix of Desperate Housewives and Bad Moms and it is so true.  I absolutely loved the ladies (and their families).  So many laugh out loud part - the port-a-toilet and the lake! Each of the ladies has their own story and background that intertwine.  None of their own stories are alike, but each deals with real-life situations that most of us can relate to.  

Bunco: A Comedy About the Drama of Friendship is written in what I would call a movie/play/tv script which I really liked.  I could also see this book being turned into a Netflix movie.  Super easy format to read.  Bunco: A Comedy About the Drama of Friendship would make a great book club selection too

I was especially excited to learn that Robin lives in the next town over (literally 5 minutes away).  If she has a real-life Bunco group, I would love to be invited.  So happy to meet a local author!

This was a super-fast read, extremely funny with real-life scenarios.  Bunco: A Comedy About the Drama of Friendship is a MUST read for sure!

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: Absolutely and hope there are more to come! Can't wait to see what Robin writes next.  

Robin Delnoce has the kind of sense of humor that would crush any political aspirations. Her off-color humor amuses most but offends a few, and she has been known to issue a post-party apology or two. After twenty years of being caught in her verbal crosshairs, her husband kindly suggested she shift her energies to a more constructive outlet.
