As the media begins to condemn Lauren, she discovers she must get to the truth herself. But will she realize too late that she’s unknowingly participating in her own framing?

The Nest by C’ynthia D’Aprix Sweeney

25781157

Release Date: March 22nd  | 368 pp. | Family Fiction
In her debut novel, Cynthia D’Aprix provides an acutely perceptive look into the fates of four adult siblings and their shared inheritance. Tensions come to a head when Jack, Melody, and Beatrice Plumb confront their older brother Leo, who has just recently been released from rehab. Leo was involved in a drunk-driving incident that has endangered the Plumbs’ joint trust fund, The Nest, from their late father. A powerful reminder of the power of family, this book is about the ways we depend upon one another and the ways we let one another down.
