The Best Laid Plans is a 1997 novel by Sidney Sheldon. The story details the rise of a handsome, charismatic attorney named Oliver Russel, to political fame, while his jilted fiancée, Leslie Stewart, grows a media empire to eventually destroy his career and image.
He wanted power; she wanted revenge. The magnificent new novel by the internationally bestselling author of The Other Side of Midnight and Morning, Noon and Night.
‘Dear Diary: This morning I met the man I am going to marry.’ It was a simple enough entry in a young woman’s diary which gave not the slightest portent of the elaborate chain of events that was about to occur.
The Best Laid Plans tells the explosive story of the beautiful and ambitious Leslie Stewart, who learns that for some men power is the greatest aphrodisiac; and of Oliver Russell, the handsome governor of a small southern state, who finds out why hell has no fury like a woman scorned.
