Review & #Giveaway: The Yoga Club by Cooper Lawrence

Chatting it up with bendy WASPs is the last thing on Coco Guthrie’s mind during her 8:30 a.m. 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?

I picked up The Yoga Club last week and consumed the entire book in one day.  Cooper has a knack for storytelling and giving just the right amount of details.  The unforgettable characters paired with an intriguing plot make for a sensational read.  I definitely recommend this to my fellow readaholics!

Everyone seems to be switching to the Rafflecopter. It is easier and quicker to enter but I'd rather put in my entries manually. Either way.

Rafflecopter is fine - I just don't like having to sign in to open the form and then find out it's only open to U.S., etc. Sometimes the blogs don't specify in their description who the giveaways are open to until the rafflecopter form is loaded.

rafflecopter because it makes it easier...but commenting because it usually has less entries : )

Either method is fine. I just don't really like when you have to leave a coment and then go back and use the rafflecopter, as rafle copter is slow to load. Thanks for the giveaway.

I prefer rafflecopter giveaways since I have trouble typing sometimes, but I like to read the comments that are posted about interest, facts and products individuals like. Sometimes they see something on a sponsor website that I missed. Thanks.

Either or. I do like that Rafflecopter can access things like if you are already following the blogger on Twitter. It saves several steps and then I tend to do more entries :)
