Crimes Against a Book Club

“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.

If you’re in need of a good laugh, then CRIMES AGAINST A BOOK CLUB is your answer. A light read with lots of wit and charm, you’ll find yourself following eagerly along as the protagonists tackle real life problems with a creative and comical solution. Enjoyable and unconventional, CRIMES AGAINST A BOOK CLUB earns 3.5 stars. This is a fun read to pass an uneventful afternoon, but I knocked a star off for the absurdity of the storyline. While hilarious, I had a hard time seeing this play out in real life. I’d recommend downloading to your kindle or reading app for the next rainy day or long plane ride.
