Title: A Friend of the Family
Author: Lisa Jewell
 
Brothers Tony, Sean, and Ned had the perfect upbringing. They adore their parents and actually look forward to coming home for Sunday lunch. But now that they've grown up, real life is starting to get in the way. Tony's dealing with divorce and a weight problem. Novelist Sean is up against a serious case of writer's block and a shock announcement from his "perfect" new girlfriend. Their parents have a new lodger, Gervase—why is Bernie, their mother, so keen to give this unsavory waif a home? And what is the real reason for kid brother Ned's surprise return from his travels in Australia?
