9781503942981: Crimes Against a Book Club

“Lighthearted...You’ll speed through this read.” —Real Simple

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.

About the Author:

Kathy Cooperman spent four years performing improvisational comedy, then decided to do something less fun with her life. After graduating from Yale Law School, she went into criminal law, defending “innocent” (rich) clients. These days, she lives in Del Mar, California, with her husband and four challenging young children. Crimes Against a Book Club is her first novel. Follow her on Twitter @Kathy_Cooperman.

Review:

A PopSugar Hot New Spring Books Selection

 

A Real Simple Best Book of May

 

“Cooperman’s latest is a fantastic neighborhood book club meets The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills dramathon, a cautionary no-good-deed-goes-unpunished tale. Her study on the complexities of friendships and marriage, plus a rock-solid plot, snappy, quick-paced dialogue, likable stars and a stable of unforgettable co-stars make it a real page-turner.” RT Book Reviews

 

“Lighthearted....You'll speed through this read.” Real Simple

 

“Cooperman’s debut is a light, engrossing novel with two bold protagonists that won’t quickly be forgotten.” Publishers Weekly

 

“Cooperman is at her best when she focuses on the friendship between Annie and Sarah—their bond is genuinely touching, and their struggles are easy to relate to....A funny story about what two women will do to make a quick buck.” Kirkus Reviews

 

“The theme of this first novel is the importance of family....The fun is the developing characters.” Booklist

 

“Funny, heartwarming and a little left of center, Crimes Against a Book Club is a story about real life struggles tackled in an unconventional manner.” Long and Short Reviews

 

“Cooperman...weave[s] levity into profound themes. Think a quirkier Liane Moriarty.” Del Mar Times

 

“A winner the whole way through...The story is fun, fresh, and celebrates friendship.” —Chick Lit Central
