When cocktails once a week isn't enough, three friends form the Cocktail Club-but what begins as social drinking quickly morphs into something far more sinister. Ivee Henderson is a media consultant accustomed to being in control. But when her drinking goes from casual to reckless, she's forced to pay a price that's higher than any check she could ever write. A stay-at-home mom, Darby Jaxon is fed up with her life. She starts secretly drinking to get through each day and to hide her dirty little secret: the fact that she can't stop thinking about the drunk driver who killed her sister-mainly because she's drawn to him like a moth to a flame. For single mom Peta Nixon, under the influence is the only way she can stomach her ex-husband. Since their separation (because of his bed-hopping habits), they can't seem to keep their hands off each other-that is, until one night, when her drinking ends it all for good. Everything is more manageable after a few drinks-or so it seems for the ladies in The Cocktail Club. Problems shrink, work is less stressful, and love finally has clarity. But is drinking really the answer or is a dark payback waiting for them at the bottom of each cocktail?
