In the sleepy town of White Falls, Minnesota, Cadillac salesman Dick Lindstrom realizes his dream when he opens Your Oasis on Flame Lake, a tiny cabaret club in his tastefully furnished basement

Blackwell North Amer
Best friends fast approaching forty, Devera and BiDi (short for Beverly Diane) were recently voted "Least Changed" at their twentieth high school reunion. Once overjoyed, Devera now finds the label insulting. Oh, she loves her husband and still believes being a wife and mother is the main entree on life's plate. She just longs for the more exotic side dishes.
Bidi is adored by her second husband, Sergio, but her only passions are her perfect household and her perfect body. These priorities sadden her daughter, Francesca, a stocky fourteen-year-old and the only girl on the high school hockey team. Francesca feels closer to her stepdad, a spirited, supportive soul who loves her right back. BiDi can't figure it out. Nor can she pinpoint the reason why her own sex drive is stuck in neutral, despite a thin and gorgeous chassis.
Then there's Devera's husband, Dick Lindstrom, an ace car and appliance salesman with cabaret in his heart. He dreams of opening a night club in his basement. Nothing fancy. Just a BYOB joint to hang out in, sing, dance, tell jokes, and be yourself. The name? Your Oasis on Flame Lake. And it arrives not a moment too soon. For a violent, unexpected crisis will throw both families into chaos - and force them to take stock of their lives.
