Reading More: Crimes Against a Book Club

book square

Crimes Against a Book Club by Kathy Cooperman was provided to me at no charge through my Amazon Prime Membership.  The opinions are my own. You can see other books I’ve reviewed here.

Every month Amazon sends me an email saying to choose a free book. Mostly they don’t interest me, but I choose a free book anyway because, well, Free Books!

They haven’t been amazing so far and usually I don’t get very far into them. Crimes Against a Book Club though? Worth it.

From Amazon:

Best friends Annie and Sarah need cash—fast. Sarah, a beautiful, successful lawyer, wants nothing more than to have a baby. But balancing IVF treatments with a grueling eighty-hour workweek is no walk in the park. Meanwhile, Annie, a Harvard-grad chemist recently transplanted to Southern California, is cutting coupons to afford her young autistic son’s expensive therapy.

Desperate, the two friends come up with a brilliant plan: they’ll combine Sarah’s looks and Annie’s brains to sell a “luxury” antiaging face cream to the wealthy, fading beauties in Annie’s La Jolla book club. The scheme seems innocent enough, until Annie decides to add a special—and oh-so-illegal—ingredient that could bring their whole operation crashing to the ground.

Hilarious, intelligent, and warm, Crimes Against a Book Club is a delightful look at the lengths women will go to fend for their families and for one another.

This one took me a bit to get into, but about a few chapters in it really picked up. I loved how the characters developed, the “will she get caught?!” element, and the different story lines intertwining.

A bit of a twist at the end and a bit implausible, but a nice way to spend a few late nights when I couldn’t sleep. The ladies made for some good companions with some good laughs.

Is this something you’d read? Why or why not?
