Life's going down the gurgler for romance writer Lisa Trumperton. The deadline for her next novel is looming, her daughter won't eat but has a new tattoo each week, and now her Wall Street trader husband has run off with a woman at work.

Lisa makes a quick escape, home to Australia, where at least her girl-magnet son seems to be making hay. Determined to grow older disgracefully, she turns her back on a trim and tidy townhouse that is close to shops, aged-care providers and her bossy older sister, instead buying a grand old house in the country that once belonged to her great-grandfather.

But like its new owner, Trumperton Manor has seen better days. Crumbling, filthy and possibly haunted, the old house defies Lisa's attempts to restore it. Add flood, fire and family secrets, plus a stray cat with attitude and an overly familiar handyman, and the cracks begin to show...

Richly observed and laugh-out-loud funny, Tumbledown Manor is for anyone who believes it's never too late for a makeover.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Filled with charming characters, this sweet, funny novel about a woman who creates a new life for herself after losing both her husband and her home is a treat. -- Sarah Pekkanen, internationally bestselling author of Things You Won't Say
If you loved Helen Brown in her bestselling memoir, Cleo, you'll love her all over again as the author of Tumbledown Manor. She takes on fiction with as much spunk as her heroine, Lisa Trumperton, leaves a failed marriage and takes on a new life. As usual, Helen Brown is warm, wise, and witty. Prepare for a treat. -- Kristin von Kreisler
