Sherry Winette is a young woman who has a difficult life and is overly fond of potato chips. Being raised by a dysfunctional, unwed mother and never knowing who her father was has made her supremely independent—perhaps too independent for her own good. Then, out of the blue, her beloved but estranged grandmother dies and leaves Sherry the house where she lived until she was hauled away by her mother to avoid a threat of molestation. At nineteen she is finally free of her mother’s hellish grasp and ready to start a meticulously planned future in her own, completely empty house. Enter handsome Mark and wealthy Elena—Mark instantly falls in love with Sherry and Elena tries to kill her, her parasitic mother reappears and those plans crash all about her.
No Plans for Love is a well designed story full of suspense and emotion. It’s more mystery than romance and more general interest than chick lit. It got me hooked and I’m a crusty old man.
