Best Laid Plans by Patricia Fawcett
The pressures of the recession have left the Fletchers’ business in trouble, and their family in a similar state of disarray. Lacking a bond with her daughter, Amy, has left Christine Fletcher feeling inadequate, and guilty about the amount of time she spends instead with her artistic daughter-in-law, Monique. But Christine’s husband and daughter don’t believe Monique to be as innocent and uncomplicated as she seems. A family Christmas reveals surprises and when Monique disappears to her cottage in France and Amy’s new relationship runs into trouble, Christine is forced to act to save both her family and the business.
