Three and a half rating.
A dodgy house swap, slightly problematic marriage, strange goings on and plenty of twists and turns along the way. Someone has got it in for Libby and Jaime, but who and why? This pair are meant to be intelligent but are so naive. It’s as if they shared the same one brain cell the way they carried on most of the time! There’s a lot of nasty, selfish characters in this book and only the dog is truly likeable. The ending comes as a bit of an anticlimax. There are some edge of your seat moments, it’s fast moving and there are some great descriptions of Bath, Cornwall and Thailand. I did like the writing style and the cover. ( )

Libby has had a difficult few months. Hailed as a hero after saving children from a fire at the school where she works, Libby lost her baby and broke her arm and the stress on her marriage is telling. When a note drops through the door of her flat Libby jumps at the chance of a house swap and travels to Cornwall with her husband Jamie. However Libby doesn't find the break relaxing and, on their return to Bath, things seem to go from bad to worse. Is Libby's past catching up with her.

This is the sort of book that will sell by the bucketload over the summer season, it is the perfect beach read for the legions of people (usually female) who love a psychological story that doesn't involve loads of serial killers! In fact of its genre it's quite a decent example. OK so the plot has more holes in it than a fishing net, the characters are not very sympathetic and it rushes towards the end but there is quite an interesting premise to the tale. I devoured the book, reading it in a couple of hours because it is pacy, but it was empty calories really. ( )
