Holly Hilborne unexpectedly inherits a large and dilapidated house in Brighton from her reclusive aunt. Daunted by the challenge the house represents, Holly recruits her three ex-lovers: Ray, a builder, Spencer, an artist, and James, an osteopath, to help her renovate the house.
But no good deed goes unpunished… Soon the house is riddled with tension and Holly is beset with migraines, nausea and spiralling self-doubt, even the house itself seems to be turning against her. But for someone everything is going to plan…
The novel features many Brighton and Hove landmarks – the ancient elm of Preston Park, the quirky shops of the North Laine, the ruined West Pier and, of course, seagulls! It was published by Bloodhound Books on 16th March 2023
