From the Editor

Every Saturday, after a long work week, I head to the grocery store to stock up for what’s sure to be yet another long week ahead. Inevitably, while trudging through the aisles, I become convinced that everyone else has it better than me. The other women gliding along with their carts look terrific. Their hair is styled, their yoga pants clearly aren’t meant for actual yoga, and some are even wearing heels. Heels! To the grocery store! Obviously, these women live lives of luxury. What else could explain it? And more importantly, how can the world be so unfair?

I do what comes naturally. I tell myself that these beautifully put-together women must be miserable, living empty lives populated with only manicurists, massage therapists, and stylists. I’m not proud of thinking these thoughts, but it gets me through the checkout line.

So imagine my glee when the characters in Kathy Cooperman’s delightful tale hatch a plan to squeeze a little bit of trust and a whole lot of money out of the members of La Jolla’s most exclusive book club. I couldn’t wait to see Annie and Sarah take advantage of these privileged ladies. But Cooperman doesn’t make it that easy. As intrepid as they are, Annie and Sarah find that things aren’t so black and white. Instead, as they get to know the book club members they once loathed, they find, in hilarious ways, that we all have similar struggles. There is no us vs. them. Our hearts all beat the same rhythm, and we all long for true friends and family in this complicated world—no matter what we wear to the grocery store.

Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Cooperman’s debut novel is a lighthearted look at the evolution of a female friendship through entrepreneurial success and strife. When best friends Annie and Sarah find themselves broke with growing medical bills, the women decide to go into business selling a homemade face cream to the wealthy wives of La Jolla, San Diego. With meticulous Annie’s chemistry background and beautiful Sarah’s charisma, the business takes off—and Sarah soon finds herself learning more than she ever hoped for about the unfulfilled women of La Jolla. It is a whiplash-inducing rise to success, but when their secret ingredient comes to light, Annie and Sarah find themselves in the middle of a high-society scandal. Using a clever heist plot as her vehicle, Cooperman introduces the reader to a variety of characters trying to figure out how to age gracefully in a milieu dominated by the young and beautiful. While Cooperman’s characters are always intriguing and their personalities clear, their resolutions often feel like an afterthought to the main story. Cooperman’s debut is a light, engrossing novel with two bold protagonists that won’t quickly be forgotten.


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

“I absolutely loved Crimes Against a Book Club. [It] has to be up there on the list of one of my favorite fun novels. So many good bits. It hit all the right spots for me.” 3 Book Girls
