Best friends Annie and Sarah come up with a money-making scheme to sell anti-aging face cream to the wealthy, image-conscious women in Annie’s community. Annie’s young son needs expensive treatment after being diagnosed on the autism spectrum, while Sarah needs to finance another round of IVF. But what product manufacturer Annie, a chemist, doesn’t tell saleswoman extraordinaire Sarah, a lawyer, is that the secret ingredient is a dash of cocaine.
Although the book club connection was a stretch, this is a very promising debut from a lawyer, with plenty of tongue-in-cheek humour. Really enjoyed it.
