Book Review: Best Laid Plans by Kathy Lette

best.pngI read this book on holiday and it’s indeed ideal as a holiday read.

Best Laid Plans is a fun novel about a woman, Lucy, who is looking for a girlfriend for her autistic son. She becomes a known offender at the local police office after several illegal attempts at helping her son find a nice girl (including kerb-crawling). When Merlin finally finds a girlfriend (without his mother’s help), Lucy is less than thrilled as she suspects ulterior motives by the girl. She now needs to find a way to dump the girlfriend. And so the story moves on, from one somewhat (or very!) unlikely situation to the next.

I loved the fun twists in the story, but because of the improbably situations, I was always aware that this was just a story. A fun one, though. A light read that will keep you entertained. 4 stars
