I chose this book because I found the idea of house swapping interesting. I could tell from the cover that it would be a Rom-Com type of book.

The house swap is between James, an uptight financial guy who lives in the centre of London, and Cassie. Cassie is an author who writes children’s books who lives on an island off the coast of Maine. Cassie is a detail-oriented and outgoing person.

As expected, as they as going through the details of the house swap, Cassie and James get off on the wrong foot. The rest of the story is quite predictable. I don’t usually mind when a story leaves the realm of reality, as long as it stays entertaining enough to keep my attention. And, interesting enough to keep my attention watching it evolve.

I could predict within the first few pages what the outcome was going to be. I did not realize that it would involve some touching moments. I would call it “substance” popping up in a light read. There were lots of touches of humour too, a perfect balance!

I always like a book where I learn something. In this book, I learned that there is such a thing as a “tuna and sweet corn sandwich”. After Googling, I see that it is a British thing. Who knew?

In conclusion, the characters were cute, the plot was cute, the ending was cute. There are times in our lives when we need something like this book…..and I read this at the right time. It turned out to be a real “feel good” book.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
