Two women, two very different lives – one perfect solution to a Christmas holiday fraught with potential pitfalls. The Holiday Swap. Florence Cortes has the perfect life – an apartment in the trendiest district of Barcelona, a job she loves and a boyfriend who’s whisking her away on a romantic break to Paris to no doubt propose.
Only, he’s planning something far different, and Flo soon realises her life isn’t so perfect after all.
Home loving Daisy Fischer is perfectly happy in her idyllic home in the Cheshire countryside, with an on-off boyfriend who might be slightly dull but is totally dependable. Until he issues an ultimatum, and Daisy suddenly realises that there might be a whole different world out there that she’s missing out on.
Have Flo and Daisy come up with the perfect solution to escape festive heartbreak?
Can a snowbound Christmas in Cheshire – with aristocratic, handsome Hugo as her neighbour, a house full of animals and a leaking roof – help Flo mend her broken heart, and remind her of what she really wants in life?
Can a sunny break in beautiful Barcelona – with the dishy but brooding Javier, a never ending supply of cava, and a sea view to die for – prove to Daisy that playing safe isn’t always the answer?Love actually does seem to be all around this Christmas – and in the places Flo and Daisy least expect to find it, but where will they be for New Year?
Firstly, another big thanks to TBC and the author for allowing me a copy in exchange for an honest review. I have started my Christmas reading early with this one (EXCITING!). This story reminds me of the film The Holiday as its similar with the holiday swap idea BUT totally different. Yes. I loved it. The cover is beautiful, it is written beautifully and it gives you a free vacation to Barcelona! It also has the perfect ending and I am a sucker for a great ending. The Holiday swap is the perfect chick-lit, romance, drama, adventure and Christmas filled story for all you chick-lit lovers, its perfect. I do not have a bad word to say about this story at all. If you are an animal lover this is also the book for you.
I must admit I find myself very similar to Daisy who seemed to be happy in her home and little town not much of an adventurer, but the difference is I have LOTS of books to keep me company and to travel away in my mind. Stories like this do make me want to go and adventure the world but my bank account says NO. maybe one day. Anyway, I would highly recommend this book to you! It was a feel good, funny in parts read for me which I enjoyed. The perfect weekend read. Enjoy, I did.
