Chatting it up with a bunch of bendy WASPs is the last thing on Coco Guthrie’s mind during her 8:30am yoga class. Having made her fortune as the world-renowned inventor of Butt-B-Gone derriere cream, Coco still doesn’t feel like she belongs among the upper class–until she attends the swankiest Halloween soiree in Greenwich, Connecticut, where three of her fellow morning yogis shared her brilliant idea to appear as Sarah Palin.
Soon it’s clear that a love of stretching isn’t all this accidental sorority – which includes a single mom with echolalia, an entertainment reporter who charms the pants off handsome stars, and a drama-prone producer with a taste for drag – have in common.
When the four mischievous Sarahs wander away from the party to sneak a peek at the mayor’s neighboring estate, they are stunned to find him adorned in leather and latex, and rolling up a woman’s body in a Persian rug. To make matters worse, someone has spotted the spying Palins. Someone who threatens to expose their torrid affairs in business and the bedroom. Now the unlikely foursome must use all their wits and wiles to get to the bottom of the kinky crime. But will their budding friendship be strong enough to protect their deepest secrets?
My Review :
The Yoga Club is a funny and entertaining book and a fairly short read . It was perfect for me to finish up during the holidays , when frankly speaking I though I would not get any reading done with the kids at home and house guests and all the things that usually comes up with vacation but since I finished the book during this 2 weeks time of holidays you can imagine how light-hearted and short book it can be !
The author Copper Lawrence , is obviously very knowledgeable with celebrity culture and famous name dropping abounds. But frankly speaking even without famous names the story wouldn’t have suffered much and I couldn’t care less . I am going to also warn that if you are looking for a strong storyline and good developing characters this book is not for you . The storyline is somewhat weak and character development is shallow and stereotypical . It’s a book to be read at airports , long car drive (if you are not driving of course !), airplane and in situation like me while on vacation , screaming , wild kids and house guests ! You get the picture .
