From book: 
Welcome to the Big Girls Book Club, where only one rule applies: members must be at least a size 16. Sisters and original BGBC members Isis and Egypt have left New York for Richmond, where Isis is happily married and living in the lap of luxury. Her sister Egypt has moved to get away from her past.

My Review:
Chapters are told in the point of view of a specific character. Isis is the sister of Egypt. This chick has issues. Like fo' real! She has always been selfish and thought about only herself. She is twisted as hell. When someone makes her angry she often imagines herself harming or killing them. Egypt, the sister of Isis and wife to Isis ex-boyfriend. "What?" you say. "Scandalous child." I say. Now mind you, Isis should have chosen her man more wisely. Unfortunately, she chose wrong and her sister reaped the benefits. Lorraine is a sex deprive wife who thinks her husband is cheating on her. Jerome is Lorraine's best friend and ex-lover who loves to turn me out. Yes honey...he's gay. He is also part of the reason why Lorraine thinks her husband is cheating.

As you can gather this book is full of drama, deceit, and twist. I was a good quick read. In the end there are some happy endings though I was not completely satisfied with the way it ended. Love prevail for most of the characters while other relationships ended harshly. So all in all, it's a great page turner.

Happy Reading!
