Overview

"Living well is the the best revenge..."

Well, maybe. But when it came to a woman scorned--not to mention two women scorned--maybe revenge was the best revenge. Thus when Joan Hoffman and Liz Savoie, both systematically dumped by the men they thought they loved, worked out side by side at the gym one fine day, they formulated a plan. A club, if you will.

Overview

"Living well is the the best revenge..."

Well, maybe. But when it came to a woman scorned--not to mention two women scorned--maybe revenge was the best revenge. Thus when Joan Hoffman and Liz Savoie, both systematically dumped by the men they thought they loved, worked out side by side at the gym one fine day, they formulated a plan. A club, if you will. Why not go after each other's husbands? See them. Seduce them. And drop them....

The plan was simple. The reality, however, was complicated by pregnant mistresses, embittered new wives, surly grown children--and then one of the exes went missing. And the members of the Payback Club were in for it now: Would they get even? Would they get everything?

Or would they get twenty years to life?

Meet the Author

Rexanne Becnel swears that if it weren't for coffee, she could not be a writer. All her creativity comes out longhand, fueled by café au lait and the occasional bagel. At two cups and four pages a day, times fourteen years and nineteen novels, that would be...coffee overload!

But she's not worried, because as long as New Orleans teems with coffee houses, she's reassured that her head will teem with stories.

Rexanne lives in New Orleans with her husband and dog, Sadie, a lovable SPCA mutt. She says her husband is a lovable mutt, too, but she found him in the Architecture Department at the University of Southwestern Louisiana when she was nineteen. They live happily near their two grown children and large extended families.

When not writing or doing family duties, Rexanne spends as much time as possible playing volleyball. She plays in leagues around town (against twenty-year-olds with firm thighs and no varicose veins) as well as in Senior Olympic tournaments both local and national. Rexanne encourages everyone to exercise and have fun, and if they're over fifty and really want to have a blast, to look into Senior Olympic competition.

And at the end of the day when she's met her writing goals, and played volleyball until she's exhausted, there's always that other wonderful pastime: reading great books.

    Another Winner

    I love the Next series. This was one of the best of the group. A different plotline but plausible. I thought it was going to be The First Wives Club all over again but it is different and I loved it.

    A wonderful and pleasant read

    Joan Hoffman and Liz Savoie keep fit at the same fitness center and are introduced to each other by their fitness trainer. Joan and Liz had each suffered heart breaking divorces initiated by their cheating husbands in spite of the fact that they had been loyal and devoted wives. Both husbands had unmercifully raked their wives over the coals near the end of their marriages and in the property settlements. The embittered wives discover that they have the same fantasy: they each want to see their exes get their comeuppance. They form a pact to seduce each other¿s exes, then drop them and cause a little damage in the process. The plan becomes complicated and one of the ex husbands turns up missing and presumed dead and, of course, the ex wife is the prime suspect. Then it appears that the only one who is going to get their comeuppance is the ex wife. The Payback Club is expertly crafted by an apparent master storyteller. It kept me turning the pages long after I decided there were other things I needed to be doing. The main characters are true to life and I found myself caring about them. Even the secondary characters were realistic and the exes were so expertly portrayed that I hated them and wanted to see them get their comeuppance. The story is tightly structured and the plot is interesting, exciting, suspenseful, and full of surprises right up to the end of the book. Even the last two pages were surprising and provided a satisfying resolution that made me feel good all over. The Payback Club is a great read and I strongly recommend it.

    crossing Throw Momma from the Train with the First Wives¿ Club

    On the surface, upper crust Joan Hoffman and beauty salon owner Liz Savoie have nothing in common except spouses who not only cheated on them, bankrupted them. Both are outraged and thirst for vengeance. The scorned pair meets at a gym where they relate their horror story about unfaithful mates. They agree to form the PAYBACK CLUB with each seducing the other¿s ex until he becomes so emotionally devastated their penis figuratively falls off. --- The plan is set in motion to have the ex-wives exchange former husbands. Liz would seduce the now married Ed and Joan Dennis turn them into jelly and dump them. The plan was executed perfectly except for the grousing of other women and adult children until one of the formers vanishes without a trace. Has the Payback Club gone too far throwing daddy from the train? --- THE PAYBACK CLUB is a terrific romantic suspense filled with wonderful out of nowhere yet plausible twists. The tale feels like a crossing of Throw Momma from the Train with the First Wives¿ Club. Joan and Liz are a delight from the first time they meet mumbling cut off his head like phrases. When they pair up to avenge the affront caused by their respective spouses, the tale takes off bringing the audience along for a fun time. --- Harriet Klausner
