Synopsis from Lake Union Publishing
Review: Mrs. Saint and the Defectives is brimming with charm and new beginnings.
Markie is starting over after the collapse of her marriage, finances and career. She and her son Jesse move 40 miles away where no one knows them and assures herself they are in their rental 6 months tops. When meddling neighbour (and I mean this in the most loving way possible!) Mrs. Saint keeps popping into Markie’s business she is more sure than ever they are not staying a day past their lease term. But Mrs. Saint has a gift, she helps people overcome their flaws – gives them another shot if you will.
It isn’t until a tragic event unfolds that Markie recognizes Mrs. Saint and her Defectives are more than just sharing a home, they are a family who look out for one another. And Mrs. Saint’s generosity brings Markie full circle with her own family and the new one she’s become part of.
