So when I was thinking about what type of post for Tom to feature I got to thinking about all the different characters in the book and the lovable family Tom has created so today we are asking….

Which Character From Our House Are You?

Chloe Deal is observant. Every day she notices small details – like how Front Door always refuses to open when it’s raining; how whatever task he sets out to do, Daddy usually ends up snoozing to the radio in his shed; how her younger sister Daisy muddles her similes but never her fashion sense, and how Mummy’s nostrils flare when Dad forgets to mow the lawn, again.

So when Chloe starts a school project about her house, she ends up cataloguing the chaotic balancing act of her family along with it. In the run up to the school holidays (and Chloe’s birthday), disaster follows disaster at home and school. Mummy’s patience is beginning to unravel. Can Chloe get the house, her siblings and her father in shape before it’s too late.

Can Chloe Deal dazzle on stage, with some help from the builders at home?

Dad’s weird and wonderful extended family are coming to stay at Christmas, and in preparation the Deal house is finally going to be redecorated! Dad’s taken a job in Germany to pay for it, but as the builders start work they uncover more serious problems with the house.. Will Dad ever be able to move back home? Chloe has landed a starring role in her school play, but Imogen is the lead, and being as insufferable as ever. She even has a stage-kiss with Thomas! Can Mum and the kids pull off two school plays, a house refurbishment and a supersize Deal family Christmas?

Another warm, funny family story from OUR HOUSE.

Everyone’s favourite murderous twins return in The Thornthwaite Betrayal (Piccadilly Books). After a lifetime of mutual mistrust and devilish plots to take each other’s lives, orphaned twins Ovid and Lorelli Thornthwaite have finally called an end to their on going civil war. They are trying to live normal lives, going to school, making friends, not plotting each other’s demise – that kind of thing.

But when long lost Uncle Harry comes to stay, danger returns to Thornthwaite Manor. A chandelier falls while they are under it … a fire starts in Lorelli’s room… It seems that nowhere is safe. Who could be behind the attacks? Uncle Harry? His French Chef, Beaufort Nouveau? Tom the gardener? Nurse Griddle? Hazel the maid? Or perhaps Ovid is finding it hard to kick his old habits?

As fresh mysteries emerge from within the grounds of the Thornthwaite estate, no one is above suspicion because everyone has a secret in this much-anticipated sequel to cult classic The Thornthwaite Inheritance.
