Publisher Description

From the author of the sensational bestselling Sophie Kinsella novels and the New York Times bestsellers The Wedding Girl and Sleeping Arrangements, comes a wicked comedy of adultery, angst, and modern marriage

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.

A Desirable Residence is sure to continue the phenomenal success of the Sophie Kinsella/Madeleine Wickham franchise.

A desirable residence

Love this author so much she is one of my favorites. This has to be my least favorite of all her books.

Downer

This book was a slow read, with little plot, and overall a downer to read. Frustrating to get to get to the end and think, "That was a terrible book," and knowing I paid to read it.

Not her usual work

I love this writer and was very excited to read this new book. It was very slow starting and took me forever to get through. There was no real drive for me to find out what happened next, but it was the ending that really left me feeling cheated.

I sure hope mini shopaholic is back to her great writing skills.
