THE COUGAR CLUB: For women of a certain age who are hot and bothered by society?s double-standards. Champagne happy hours mandatory. Cubs get in free. They tell you that 40 is the new 30, but try telling that to the men you want to date. Kat Maguire is successful, good-looking, and single...so when the dating pool starts to get a bit shallow, she and her friends decide to go swimming in a different spot--a place where the younger men are. After all, guys have been dating younger women since the dawn of time. But Kat and her friends soon discover that, no matter what your age, love, and life still comes with its share of triumphs, heartbreaks...and, yes, romance.
They are middle-aged, hear them roar. And so they do, this trio of 40-something careerists and lifelong BFFs-Kat, an out-of-work and out-of-love New York advertising exec; Carla, a St. Louis anchorwoman who's protecting her turf from an invading bimbo; and Elise, a successful dermatologist wife and mom who's undone by her empty nest and empty sex life. Kat's abrupt job loss sends her running home to St. Louis, which triggers a reunion of the three friends and prompts their rediscovery of each other and the awakening of their inner cougars. In the process, the gals rifle through a slew of good-looking young hunks in the search for love and meaningful employment. The journey is full of curves and detours, even if the destination is a foregone conclusion. McBride, author of the YA series the Debs, explores new territory with these adult heroines and puts together a good-old-girls club with characters who are smart and insatiable, and who like their men young, athletic, and accommodating. It may not be likely, but it sure is a fun fantasy. (Feb.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
