ARC Arrival: Family Plots by Mary Patrick Kavanaugh

Family Plots: Love, Death & Tax Evasion
by Mary Patrick Kavanaugh

Publisher: IUniverse

About the book: Family Plots is a fresh and funny autobiographical novel about a young mother trying against all odds to create a normal family life with her new husband, a criminal attorney, who - it turns out - is committing a few crimes of his own.

Kavanaugh gives us a wry, unsentimental account of a marriage barreling toward calamity. In an attempt to find romance, family, and financial stability, Mary stumbles into a world of pseudonyms, fake weddings, and hidden bank accounts. Events that land many of the players into the family cemetery plot reveal unexpected secrets and stashes that manage, in small ways, to transform a tale of seeming tragedy into one of surprising healing and redemption.
