To be published by High Frequency Press late 2024.

It’s the middle of a February heatwave in Adelaide, South Australia, when freshly divorced Londoner, Judith Drainger, enters her new house and is alarmed to find herself immediately adopted by her busybody neighbour, Martha Thompson. Judith isn’t looking to make friends, but a sprained ankle, a teenage thief, and Martha’s dangerously attractive husband, Paul, all manage to drag her right into the heart of their complicated lives– lives which Judith accidentally upends, causing chaos in their suburban oasis. Yet just as things seem at their worst, help arrives from a very surprising source, and Judith is given the opportunity not only to redeem herself with her new friends, but also gets a second chance at putting her family back together.
