    DescriptionA Desirable Residence Madeleine Wickham "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.
