By N. A. Genovese on June 13, 2006
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Joan Hoffman and Liz Savoie keep fit at the same fitness center and are introduced to each other by their fitness trainer. Joan and Liz had each suffered heart breaking divorces initiated by their cheating husbands in spite of the fact that they had been loyal and devoted wives. Both husbands had unmercifully raked their wives over the coals near the end of their marriages and in the property settlements. The embittered wives discover that they have the same fantasy: they each want to see their exes get their comeuppance. They form a pact to seduce each other's exes, then drop them and cause a little damage in the process. The plan becomes complicated and one of the ex husbands turns up missing and presumed dead and, of course, the ex wife is the prime suspect. Then it appears that the only one who is going to get their comeuppance is the ex wife.

The Payback Club is expertly crafted by an apparent master storyteller. It kept me turning the pages long after I decided there were other things I needed to be doing. The main characters are true to life and I found myself caring about them. Even the secondary characters were realistic and the exes were so expertly portrayed that I hated them and wanted to see them get their comeuppance. The story is tightly structured and the plot is interesting, exciting, suspenseful, and full of surprises right up to the end of the book. Even the last two pages were surprising and provided a satisfying resolution that made me feel good all over.

The Payback Club is a great read and I strongly recommend it.

On the surface, upper crust Joan Hoffman and beauty salon owner Liz Savoie have nothing in common except spouses who not only cheated on them, bankrupted them. Both are outraged and thirst for vengeance. The scorned pair meets at a gym where they relate their horror story about unfaithful mates. They agree to form the PAYBACK CLUB with each seducing the other's ex until he becomes so emotionally devastated their penis figuratively falls off.

The plan is set in motion to have the ex-wives exchange former husbands. Liz would seduce the now married Ed and Joan Dennis; turn them into jelly and dump them. The plan was executed perfectly except for the grousing of other women and adult children until one of the formers vanishes without a trace. Has the Payback Club gone too far throwing daddy from the train?

THE PAYBACK CLUB is a terrific romantic suspense filled with wonderful out of nowhere yet plausible twists. The tale feels like a crossing of Throw Momma from the Train with the First Wives' Club. Joan and Liz are a delight from the first time they meet mumbling cut off his head like phrases. When they pair up to avenge the affront caused by their respective spouses, the tale takes off bringing the audience along for a fun time.

Once you get used to there being two recently-divorced heroines in two different circumstances, this is a story you can't put down. Reminiscent of the films "The First Wives' Club" and "Nine to five," this is more ingenious and very engaging in the first person, chick lit format. The repeated use of a certain term derogatory to females, particularly by Joan--who is the more well-heeled of the two--towards her ex's new wife; does however reflect worse on Joan than on her successor. But maybe the subtitle, "Time wounds all heels" refers as much to well-heeled women as it does to the usual type of heel. In any case, the expert plotting keeps things moving beyond such unnecessary distractions.
