The asking price for this house includes a stunning renovation of hearts and dreams....Liz and Jonathan Chambers were stuck with two mortgages, mounting debts, and a miserable adolescent daughter. Then realtor 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 business, and neither of them has time to notice that their teenage daughter is developing an unhealthy passion for the tenants, Piers and Ginny. Everyone is tangled up with everyone else, and in the most awkward possible way. As events close in, they all begin to realize that some deceptions are just a bit too close to home.

From the Back Cover:

Love, lies, and affairs of the heart all live in A DESIRABLE RESIDENCE...


From the author of the internationally bestselling Sophie Kinsella series, Madeleine Wickham's novel features a house whose asking price includes a stunning renovation of dreams and hearts...

Liz and Jonathan Chambers were stuck with mounting debt 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 new tenants. 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.

"Superstar Wickham is in stellar form... A well-executed and unexpected ending caps the dizzying action and demonstrates why Wickham is so deservedly on her genre's A-list." ―Publishers Weekly (starred review)



"A remarkably assured tale of adultery, avarice, and angst." ―The Daily Mail (UK)
