Framing the Dialogue

Crimes Against a Book Club

Crimes Against a Book Club is a light romp through the rich lives of the very rich folks of La Jolla, California.  Some of the rich ladies have a book club, but nobody really reads the books and these women have far too much money and are too snobby to really feel much for, but contempt.  There are some members who may just not be rich enough to garner the respect of the rest of the really rich folks.  A scheme develops to help some of these very wealth ladies lighten the load from their wallets.

“The other women, each preternaturally thin and fit, only picked at the food—like vampires trying to pass as human. Childishly, Annie consoled herself.”

I would put this in the “summer read” category.  Not to deep, but very entertaining.  The author, Kathy Cooperman, started each chapter with an bit of an excerpt from some famous books.  I thought that was a nice touch.  I don’t think this novel would be a good book club book.
