Life Swap - Jane Green

Life SwapLife Swap by Jane Green
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

From the outside Vicky Townsley would appear to have it all. Features Director of the hugely successful Poise! magazine, she lives alone in London, is single and seriously successful. But she'd give it all up in a heartbeat for marriage, children, and a house in the country. Amber Winslow on the other hand, has exactly what Vicky Townsley wants; a huge stone mansion in Connecticut, children and a busy charitable commitment for the local Women's League. 

But Amber isn't happy either. She hasn't found quite the fulfilment she had expected from being a full-time wife and mother, so when she spots a double page spread in Poise! magazine asking married readers to life swap with a glamorous, single journalist in London, she sits down and writes a letter. But she never expects to be picked...

This was the first book I read by Jane Green I was on holiday and I had finished all my books, luckily there was a book swap shelf. This was the only chick lit on the shelf so I decided to give it a go. The was actually the best book I read on holiday and I am so glad I picked it up.

It's a case of 'the grass is always greener....' The concept is great and the book does have laugh out loud moments. The book begins with two women, both very different and in different parts of the world, but both have the same problem, they are not content with their lives. They both dream about stepping into the shoes of someone else to see how life could be.

I found the book hard to put down, Jane Green introduces the characters in detail early on and has you hooked throughout the book. I am glad I read this book, since returning from my holiday I purchased others, my latest addition to my Jane Green collection is The Patchwork Marriage
