Buying a rundown motel to start a new life – what could possibly go wrong?  In this funny and moving novel, prize-winning author Stephanie Johnson turns her wry eye on us.

‘What a fabulous read.  Stephanie Johnson’s characters choose an old motel with little to offer except an amazing view in order to start a “new life”.  Their first guests are a classic cast of the sorrowful and dysfunctional that everyday life throws at us these days.  They are joined by their pregnant daughter, a mysterious young criminal from next door and a dog that knows more than all of them put together.  The story is fast paced, and unpredictable it’s smart, contemporary and heartbreaking all at once.  And, just when it was about to make me cry, Johnson startled me into wild laughter.  This is her best book ever, and I loved every page of it.’ – Fiona Kidman
