Descripción

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.

    A salted-caramel ice cream of a novel. 2 friends decide to sell stupidly-expensive face cream to a rich community. Interesting cast of characters. Even the rich & beautiful have their problems. Who knew! A quick, amusing gossipy beach-read.

    Easy fun read. Good summer book.

    I read this as a Kindle First e-book, which was free and offered before it's actual publication date. It's not very deep, but an enjoyable read that took me one day to finish. There's the main characters Sarah and Annie, best friends who swindle wealthy women from a book club and their friends by selling them a "magical" face cream. This is to help pay for intervention therapy for Annie's son Oscar who has autism. Funny book but not at the expense at Oscar (the descriptions of Annie dealing with the news and trying to find therapies were spot-on); the expense is more at the "victims" who are so rich that they are not going broke by paying for over-priced face cream.Each chapter introduction has a short book summary from the point-of-view of one of the many characters in this novel. Some of these summaries are spoiler-ish for the book mentioned, but it didn't bother me. If anyone asks me for a beach read for this summer, I would highly recommend this.

    This is delightful and absolutely hilarious!! I read/listen a lot (and to many genres), and there were no insignificant details, no stones left unturned, and the storyline flowed seamlessly! I mean, yes, it’s “chick lit,” but so many books in that category I get bored with. The reader did a fine job, too! If you need an easy read/listen, and you want to laugh your butt off, this one comes highly recommended by me.

    It’s not great literature, it has many flaws, but you know what? This book is fun. It made me smile, it made me chuckle. And sometimes, that’s just what I need

    This is a really fun book about friendship and books. It also had some interesting things to say about how women are still seen as valuable only for their luxe in spite of myriad accomplishments. And I appreciated the synopsis and interpretation of books by each individual character at the end of chapters.

    In its favor, this book starts each chapter with the impression one of the characters has about a book supposedly read by a La Jolla bookclub. That the books are a pretty mundane selection and somewhat dissatisfying to an avid reader, is sort of a metaphor to my reaction to the book itself. It tosses current issue subject matter, like IVF or autism, into a blend of social relations, questionable decisions and some stretching of ethical/business/legal issues, and expects the reader to accept the outcomes as justified and a "good" solution. I didn't.From the publisher:Best friends Annie and Sarah need cash—fast. Sarah, a beautiful, successful lawyer, wants nothing more than to have a baby.
