When Bea’s husband dies, she decides not to be a lonely widow. Instead, she chooses three tenants who, over the years, become a family, until the day they must find a new housemate. Will needs a place to stay and Bea’s beautiful house seems too good to be true – then he meets the housemates. At least twenty years older than him, they range from outrageously camp to irritatingly raucous, but somehow Will finds he’s taken the stunning spare room. His sister Harrie falls in love with more than just the house when she visits, and together they’re caught up in Bea’s final secret.
