The dysfunctional Plumb family is pulled together in New York City when Melody, Beatrice and Jack meet to confront their reckless older brother Leo, who is just out of rehab.

The siblings, who all suffer their own financial problems, learn that the family trust fund has been drained to bail Leo out of a crisis after he got behind the wheel of a car while drunk and was in an accident with a young female passenger. The feuding siblings must come to terms with their relationships and try to solve how they will each cope with their issues and the potential loss of a fortune referred to as “the nest.” This is an entertaining story by first-time author.
