Crimes Against a Book Club by Kathy Cooperman. Published by Lake Union

Sarah wants a child more than anything, but she needs very expensive IVF treatments. Annie needs money to help pay for her autistic son’s therapy. The two friends come up with a sure-fire way to make fast cash – they will cash in on the fears of a group of aging California book club beauties. They offer a miracle face cream, Etinav, for only $2000. A steal in a world where women are prepared to cough up ten times that for plastic surgery. There’s just one problem, the main ingredient in the cream is illegal. Yes, this was an amusing book, but I can’t help but wince when women get dragged under the “gotta look younger than you are” bus.
