Alice's partner Harry dies after falling down the stairs when they move into their newly finished dream house. Harry designed the house, so it's weird and wonderful, and impractical, and one more disorientation for Alice to go with her sense of loss and abandonment. Her beloved partner of 20 years is no more, and now she can't find the fridge. If that were her only problem... Men have a habit of hiding stuff that they don't want to deal with, and Alice discovers that Harry was worse than most. Harry's sudden death kicks up a storm of secrets, debt and suspicion which Alice is forced to confront in order to survive.
For Alice, Harry and their daughter Charlotte, moving into new home should have been a dream come true. But it turns into a nightmare when Alice discovers Harry dead at the bottom of the stairs in the property he designed.
