Crimes Against a Book Club, the debut novel by Kathy Cooperman, is about two women looking to make some quick cash. The synopsis says: "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 gruelling 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." Crimes Against a Book Club is out in May 2017.
