House Call (Wattys 2015)
"The higher you build the walls around your heart, the harder you fall when someone finally breaks them down."
At the age of 27, Beverly Rhymes is only worried about surviving. Her debts threaten to sink her, but still she holds on, only because she's a fighter and refuses to let a few hurdles keep her down.
At the ager of 29, Mordecai Hart is the heartthrob at the peak of his career. As a world renowned actor, stunts man and director, he's one of the wealthiest artists around. Driving home from filming one day, he suffers a heart attack that causes an accident and costs him a major movie deal.
With his 'friends' having abandoned him, he becomes a shell of himself, but his health is still an issue, and those who actually care about him, refuse to see him suffer.
Through some work by fate and a persistent best friend, Beverly finds herself answering a House Call, tasked with the responsibility of nursing a brooding Mordecai back to health. They're both stubborn, and it only serves to work for them.
But, as time goes by, they grow to find solace in each other. They grow closer and form a bond that those around them note as impenetrable.
That is until secrets threaten to terminate their bond altogether.
Follow Beverly and Mordecai's journey through drama, fame, surprises, heartbreak and love, as they try their best to break each other's walls down, and reveal the true Matters of the Hart.
