Publisher's Summary

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.

    "LOVED the narration!"

    Looking at previous reviews, it seems you will either love or hate this narration, but I thought it was so perfect! There was so much emotion behind the characters and Katherine Kellgren transported me into their world. I think I had a permanent smile (except in the part I cried) through to whole thing! Fun chick lit story line too.

    "Fun!"
    Where does Crimes Against a Book Club rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I would put it in the top grouping of fun reads.


    What did you like best about this story?

    There was great character development, which was aided in large part by the wonderful narrator! The story was just plain fun!


    Which character – as performed by Katherine Kellgren – was your favorite?

    All were portrayed to wonderfully!


    If you could take any character from Crimes Against a Book Club out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    It would be Annie. She is complex, smart, interesting and honest.

    "I couldn't get past the first chapter. "

    The narrator sounds like she's yelling. Not a relaxing book to listen to.

    "Fun"

    Funny story but hard to sustain the humor. Skipped a few chapters to finish it.

    "Narrative was lacking in part..."

    The narrator sounded robotic and at times. She should relax and slow down when describing comments.

    "you've got to read this!"

    This is the funniest and most delightful book into the minds of rich old women I have ever read. It's deliciously tongue in cheek story by a person who must know these women so intimately as to transform such characters into flesh and blood neurotics. I loved it.

    "Couldn't Finish"

    I love Kathy Kellgren as a narrator, and she was great here as usual, but the story, although well written, I guess, was just too shallow and too inane for me. I got about 1/4 of the way through, and gave up. I know a lot of people really liked this book, judging by all the positive reviews, but it just wasn't for me.

    "Delightful and fresh"

    Loved it. Loved the story, the writer's use of imagery, her grasp of women's insecurities ( no matter how baseless the insecurities are) and most of all- loved the narration. I miss the characters already. I am now going to look for more of her books. Hopefully she has written more! Well done.
