Adult Fiction CRANE
Summary: Whoever said you can't choose your family never met Layla. When her husband asks for a divorce, she chooses to keep his family-but he's not giving them up without a fight. When Layla Brennan married her high school sweetheart, Brett Foster, she finally got the big, loving family she'd always wanted: his. Now she's closer to Brett's parents than he is, partners with his sister in a successful pet-photography business, and confidant to his younger brother. She couldn't be more of a Foster if she'd been born one. After six years of marriage, all Brett and Layla need to complete this happy picture is a child. There's just one problem: Brett wants a divorce. Stunned and heartbroken, Layla turns to the Fosters for comfort, only to realize that losing Brett means losing them as well. What else can she do but sue him for the most valuable thing he's got-namely, his family. As the onetime sweethearts dig in their opposing heels, their furious attempts to curry favor with the Fosters only succeed in driving wedges into the formerly close-knit family. Layla and Brett quickly discover that breaking up is hard to do-and even harder to undo. Fresh, funny, poignant, and brimming with insight into what makes modern families tick-and what can blow them apart-Family Affair proves that in love and war, everything's relative.
