THE PAYBACK CLUB
Joan Hoffman, a former member of the ladies-who-lunch club, and Liz Savoie, a former beauty shop owner, appear to have little in common except cheating husbands who are financially ruining them. Both scorned women want revenge. Meeting at a gym, the two soon form the Payback Club, with each planning to date the other's ex and ruin the men's emotional lives. What follows is a surprise to both the reader and the women. Humor, realistic personal ties, smart women, adventure and danger all add up to a book you can't put down, Rexanne Becnel's The Payback Club (4.5). There are constant surprises and characters that will win your heart.
