Best Staged Plans - Claire Cook Best Staged Plans by Claire Cook is a novel that's about finding out what is important in life (tips for staging one's home and clearing out clutter are also included).

Sandy and her husband have raised their two children and are ready for a new stage in their lives. At least, Sandy is. Frustrated with her husband, who is procrastinating about getting their lovely Victorian home in the Boston suburbs in perfect shape to sell, and about her grown son living in their basement, she takes a staging job in Atlanta.

Determined to stay there until she hears that her husband has done the work, she finds out that there is more to life than a perfect home.

The story is told in first person narrative, which provides lots of opportunities for Sandy's innermost thoughts and feelings to be shared with the reader. Her epiphany, when it happens, is wonderfully written.
