Five soapy novels about women & money

At Daytime Confidential, Andrea Peskind Katz of the Great Thoughts literary blog and salon tagged five fiction books that revolve around money, including:
My Ex-Life by Stephen McCauley- This book is so damn witty that you just can’t help but laugh out loud. David is a college consultant to the wealthy, a sometimes exasperating career choice. His much younger boyfriend has just left him, and the beloved house he rents is being sold. Then, he gets a call from his ex-wife Julia. Yes, you read that right! Julia needs David’s help getting her daughter Mandy into college. She’s got her issues with love, housing and money. Julia has two whole months to come up with the money to buy her house from her second husband before their divorce is finalized. With so many one-liners you will laugh out loud and realize that the definition of family, home and money vary.
