Liz and Jonathan are in trouble. They can't sell their old house.Here they are, stuck with two mortgages, mounting debts and a miserable adolescent daughter who hadn't wanted to move anyway. Then it seems Marcus Witherstone will solve all their problems. He knows the perfect tenants from London who will rent their old house - glamorous PR girl Ginny and almost-famous Piers. Everything is going to be OK. Or is it? As Marcus starts to become involved with Liz, while her teenage daughter develops a passion for the lodgers, it seems that some deceptions are too close to home...

Back cover copy

Liz and Jonathan are in trouble. They can't sell their old house, and they've already moved into their new one. Stuck with two mortgages, mounting debts and a sulky teenage daughter, their smart estate agent Marcus presents the perfect solution - super-glamorous couple Ginny and Piers will become their tenants. But Marcus soon finds himself more involved with Liz than he'd ever intended. And neither Liz, lost in blissful lust, nor Jonathan, trying to solve their financial problems, notices that teenage Alice has developed a desperate passion for the tenants. Everyone seems to be entangled with everyone else, and Marcus needs to escape. But as events close in on him, he begins to realize that some deceptions are just a bit too close to home...show more
