From the author of the internationally bestselling Sophie
Kinsella novels, Madeleine Wickham's newest novel features a house
whose asking price includes a stunning renovation of dreams and
Liz and Jonathan Chambers were stuck with two mortgages,
mounting debts and a miserable adolescent daughter. Then Marcus
Witherstone came into their lives - and it seemed he would solve
all their problems. He knew the perfect tenants from London who
would rent their old house: a glamorous PR girl, Ginny, and her
almost-famous husband, Piers. But soon Liz is lost in blissful
dreams of Marcus, Jonathan is left to run their tutorial college,
and neither of them has time to notice that their teenage daughter
is developing a passion for the tenants, Piers and Ginny. Everyone
is entangled with everyone else, in the most awkward possible way.
And as events close in, they all begin to realize that some
deceptions are just a bit too close to home.
