Two women, two very different lives – one perfect solution to escape festive heartbreak!
Tucked away in the idyllic English countryside, Daisy Fischer’s cosy little cottage has always been her safe haven. But when her completely dependable boyfriend issues her an ultimatum, Daisy realises there’s a whole world out there she’s missing out on.
Florence Cortes’s life couldn’t be better – gorgeous apartment right on the beach, fabulous job and dreamy boyfriend, or so she thought. Suddenly, Flo’s life isn’t so perfect after all.
When the girls house swap for the holidays, it’s not long before Daisy is being distracted by sun, sea and sexy Javier while Flo finds herself snowbound for Christmas with only handsome neighbour Hugo and a house full of animals to keep her company.
Love actually does seem to be all around this Christmas, but in the places Flo and Daisy least expect to find it…
The story alternates between Flo and Daisy who have been friends for awhile. Flo lives in the fabulous setting of Barcelona right in the heart of the city which couldn’t be any further from the rural village that Daisy lives in. I have to say I loved both settings. I could easily envision both and whilst Barcelona definitely had it’s temptations, I must say the cottage and small village where Daisy lives, won my heart.
Both women have come to a bit of a halt where their love lives are concerned. I loved the idea of the pair of them getting away from their problems in different countries to hopefully find the answers they are looking for. Something I’m sure we would all love to do from time to time.
This story has a real feel good vibe about it. There is quite a bit of humour in it which I enjoyed. Whilst the heart of it maybe romance, it’s also about women doing it for themselves. Daisy and Flo are quite different in personalities of which both love interests couldn’t be any further from each other also. I liked that each character very much had their own strong voice and I couldn’t help fall a little bit in love with both men that Daisy and Flo were falling for.
The Holiday Swap was an engaging and fun read. Some parts had me laughing whilst other parts made me go awe. I so enjoyed the blossoming relationships between both couples and it certainly kept me entertained. A great novel to pick up and enjoy at any time of the year.
