ABOUT THE BOOK:
‘No one lives this way unless they want to hide something.’
When Caroline and Francis receive an offer to house swap, they jump at the chance for a week away from home. After the difficulties of the past few years, they’ve worked hard to rebuild their marriage for their son’s sake; now they want to reconnect as a couple.
On arrival, they find a house that is stark and sinister in its emptiness – it’s hard to imagine what kind of person lives here. Then, gradually, Caroline begins to uncover some signs of life – signs of her life. The flowers in the bathroom or the music in the CD player might seem innocent to her husband but to her they are anything but. It seems the person they have swapped with is someone she used to know; someone she’s desperate to leave in her past.
But that person is now in her home – and they want to make sure she’ll never forget . . .
Imagine swapping houses with a complete stranger. Or at least someone you think is a stranger, completely unknown to you… would you swap houses and take the chance to live in someone else’s home for a while, and have them live in yours? What if that person you swapped houses with has something to hide? What if they are looking for something that you are trying to hide?
I enjoyed the premise of this book and it had me guessing what was going to happen next. I was curious to see how the story would unfold and I was curious who this other swap person was and what exactly it was they were after.
I enjoyed how the story was told from alternating timelines and alternating point of views. Overall a good story that I enjoyed.
MY RATING: 3/5 stars
