From the author of GUILTY CREATURES comes a novel of family life turned upside down
Kate’s got her life sorted out, with her own business, run from her trendy townhouse in London, where she’s lucky enough to have best friends in the same street, a workable marriage, two kids, the occasional visit home to her roots. But all this is changed by a phone call one night: her widowed mother has fallen over and is in hospital.
Things aren’t as they seem. Far from being a fragile old lady in desperate need, it transpires that Kate’s mother has tripped down the stairs after too many lunchtime cocktails and is being only too well looked after by her gorgeous toyboy lodger. Miffed, Kate returns to London – to discover that her best friend has been sleeping with her husband. Where does that leave her?
A novel of trust betrayed and lives rebuilt, internet dating and the strange comfort of returning home after life in the fast lane, this will win Sue Welfare even more dedicated fans.
