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.

With the unexpected twists and turns that are the hallmarks of his mega-bestselling novels, Sidney Sheldon spins a tale of two equally determined people headed on a collision course. Oliver has a strategy to win the White House; Leslie has a scheme to make him wish he'd never been born. They both should have known that even the best-laid plans can go dangerously astray... in a dangerous way.

the best laid plans is the least interesting of all the books Sidney has written. first when I read the journal I was eager to read it but after reading the book I felt like it was boring. first of all, there are no laid plans. Leslie had planned to be just an owner of a media company and nothing else. she had done nothing interesting in order to bring him down. Overall, the title and the story and even the picture on the book has got nothing to do with the story.

Yet another fast paced novel by Sheldon. I loved Leslie's characterization and the climax was totally unexpected.

Sheldon has a flair to keep his readers intrigued throughout his novels. I loved reading this one.
