Falling in, falling out, falling head over heels . . . 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, and 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 toy boy lodger. Miffed, Kate returns to London - to discover her best friend has been sleeping with her husband. Where does that leave her?
