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.

Professional reviews

"The author of the popular Shopaholic series (under the pen name Sophie Kinsella) portrays residents of suburban London in this contemporary novel of manners. The plot revolves around several families caught up in the housing bust. The author acquaints us with entrepreneurial academicians, a disaffected adolescent, a smarmy realtor, an aspiring soap opera star, and others who engage the listener's sympathy. Katherine Kellgren brings these struggling characters to life. Her accent is suitably English, and she speaks with clarity. She delivers a particularly apt depiction of teenaged Alice, who specializes in brooding. The execution and narration of this slight story make it enjoyable listening. D.L.G.
