Book Review: The House Swap

31 May 2018|

Title: The House Swap

Author: Rebecca Fleet

Genre: Domestic Thriller

Main Characters:

  • Caroline – lead female
  • Francis – her husband
  • Carl – lover
  • Amber – neighbor

Summary:

Be careful who you let in…

When Caroline and Francis receive an offer to house swap  – from their city flat to a townhouse in a leafy, upscale London suburb – they jump at the chance for a week away from home, their son and the tensions that have pushed their marriage to the brink.

As the couple settles in, the old problems that permeate their marriage – his unhealthy behaviours, her discretions – start bubbling to the surface. But while they attempt to mend their relationship, their neighbor, an intense young woman, is showing a little too much interest in their activities.

Meanwhile, Caroline slowly begins to uncover some signs of life in the stark house  – signs of her life. The flowers in the bathroom or the music might seem innocent to anyone else – but to her they are clues. It seems the person they have swapped with is someone who knows her, someone who knows the  secrets she’s desperate to forget.

Verdict:

This had me hooked, I couldn’t put it down. Even though I managed to work it out half way through the book, I just had to keep reading…

Have you read it? What did you think?

Any other good book recommendations?
