    [synopsis] => Wendy Hebb has been a fisherman's wife for forty years. She has also been a mother, a yoga instructor, and part-time soap maker. She loves her life in picturesque Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, but it's just not enough anymore. With a burning entrepreneurial desire, she decides that when her husband, Paul, retires, it will finally be her turn to live out her dream. The catch: her dream is to open a sex shop. While Paul begrudgingly goes along with Wendy's "half-cocked" idea, it's out of a sense of guilt; a recently spilled secret has their marriage on the rocks. As soon as the townspeople get wind of Wendy's plans, it opens up a whole other can of worms, and Paul finds himself bait for the local rumor mill. Her silent, "invisible" partner in the project, he secretly hopes her plan for the shop will fail.

Orbiting around Paul and Wendy's story is a motley crew of characters, including the Hebbs' daughter, Ellen, a feminist academic, who catches the eye of a lady-killer coworker, while home for the summer; Wendy's best friend, Betty, a chain-smoking seamstress with secrets of her own; the local minister and her husband, who secretly indulge in role play; and the wealthy Sonya and Booth, who will stop at nothing to make sure the shop never opens its doors, as long as they can avoid discussing their failing marriage.

An irreverent novel full of heart and humor, Fishnets & Fantasies is a story of love and lust at any age, of old grudges and older secrets, and of the relationships that make all the awkward fumbling worthwhile.
