In Crane's hilarious third relationship soap (after Forget About It), a divorcing couple fights for custody, not of a child or a pet but of an entire family. Layla and Brett Foster became high school sweethearts after her mother died and her musician father abandoned her in the care of Brett's parents. Their subsequent marriage appeared rock solid, but now, on the verge of 30, still immature Brett is a college football coach who begins thinking the thrill is gone. Somewhat clueless Layla is a pet photographer and co-owner of TLC Paw Prints with sister-in-law Trish, and just when Layla brings up the possibility of having kids, Brett blurts out his desire to divorce. In the ensuing domestic battle royale, Brett's family become Layla's fierce allies, and Brett turns jealous and furious when Layla files a countersuit for joint custody of Brett's family. Watching this exceedingly unconventional family duke it out and grow up is truly delightful. (Oct.)

"Perceptive, touching and always hilarious, Family Affair is Caprice Crane's best work yet. It's an irresistible story with equal parts humor and heart." —Emily Giffin, author of Love the One You're With
"The phrase 'You don't marry the man; you marry his family' has never rung so true. Family Affair is so full of heart and humor, you'll want to squeeze into the family station wagon and sit shotgun for the ride." —Stephanie Klein, NYT bestselling author of Straight Up and Dirty and Moose
"With a finely tuned ear for dialogue and a biting sense of humor, Family Affair is another winner.

"An unflinchingly honest, fiercely funny, unexpectedly tender story of a marriage between two very appealing people you'll root for every step of the way." —Melissa Senate, author of The Secret of Joy
"This is a clever and unique take on the romantic comedy. Witty, touching and often laugh-out-loud funny, I loved it." —Alison Pace, author of City Dog
