"Waiting On" Wednesday: Best Staged Plans


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted here, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Best Staged Plans
By Claire Cook
Publication Date: June 7

From Amazon:

Sandy Sullivan is a professional home stager in the Boston suburbs, so getting rid of her own house, remaking it for the market, and downsizing should be a breeze. But nothing is ever as easy as it seems, with her husband Greg dragging his feet and their son Luke moving back home to inhabit the basement “bat cave.” Sandy reads them the riot act and takes a job staging a boutique hotel in Atlanta recently acquired by her best friend’s boyfriend. The good news is that she can spend time with her recently married daughter Shannon. The bad news is that Shannon soon receives a promotion and heads back to Boston for training, leaving Sandy and her Southern son-in-law Chance as reluctant roommates.

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

Shame on me for hoping something naughty happens between the lady and her son-in-law. That's the first thing that came to mind, but I don't think it's that kind of story...lol...sounds interesting though!

Lori said...

This sounds like a recipe for disaster! LOL I too thought of the mother-in-law falling for the son-in-law!

Hmm. Sounds like many disasters will happen, which instantly makes it interesting to me. Although it kind of sounds like the something might happen between the mother and son-in-law.

Lol. Just read the other comments. Looks like I'm not the only one thinking these things.
