The Swap Reviews
I am actually disappointed with this book. Although the premise sounded interesting, the story became entirely predictable except for the many loose ends. One red herring is okay. Looking back at the book it seems like it was an entire red herring. The characters were not fleshed out and the plot was sloppy. I don't like sloppy writing when reading a mystery.
This book could have been written by a high schooler in creative writing class. A good student but has a long way to go before writing a B ...more
I bought The Swap because I like thrillers with female protagonists and was intrigued a mystery involving an international house swap - since I've been thinking about doing a house swap myself. Once i started it, I literally could not put it down. Great, fun read!
In this story, The Swap. Nicole Lewis arranges a swap of her and her husband Brad house in California for a place in London, where Brad will be working for the summer. Brad’s sectary comes also and that was not what she wanted, she wanted time at least a little time with her husband. After settling in the next day she finds out the Lowry’s did not make it to their home in California and also there was a problem with the car she left at the home. After speaking with the police from California she ...more
Nicole Graves engages in a summer long house swap of her Los Angeles condo with a strangers’ house in London. What could possibly go wrong?
The Swap is told from Nicole’s point of view, an American staying in Britain. In her own style she forms opinions of the British way of life and her spelling is American English. So it was quite funny for me being British, living and working in Britain, reading a book set in Britain BUT written by an American, centred around an American character using Americ ...more
Nicole Lewis finds herself in a predicament. After Nicole and Brad Lewis from Los Angeles swap houses with Fredrick and Muriel Lowry in London, their world unravels.

From the start, Nicole meets Inspector Richard H. Reinhardt, who is searching for Fredrick Lowry. The tenant in the Lowry's home, Alice McConnehy, see ...more
Can we just all agree that swaps are generally a terrible idea. How much faith do you have in (wo)mankind to trust them in your place unattended? How exactly do you relax in a stranger’s place knowing that there are strangers in yours? None of it sounds right, even in this day and age of shared economy. Or maybe I’m just too possessive and proprietary of my living space. Nah…swaps are still stupid and the least safe way to try on someone’s life. But then again Nicole Graves, the story’s protagon ...more
Just when you thought it was safe to go on that business trip with your husband, it wasn’t. I thought I was so smart when I figured the husband had to be lying, although I do have to admit I thought her husband had a lot more to do with the events that enveloped her than he actually did. Still, this was a fun book and I found myself cheering for her and being surprised at her gumption and willingness to throw herself wholeheartedly into the quest for the truth. I was a little disappointed at the ...more
Nicole, is an American who will be staying for 3 weeks in a big house in London, not for holidays but to try to save her marriage with Brad. When some frightening things start to happen around her, she only wants to return home and divorce Brad.
Visiting London is one of my favourite pleasures, and staying there for 3 weeks would be my dream. I made a few swap houses in my life, some are better than others of course, but I was never so unlucky like Nicole to end in a house like the Lowry's!
I love ...more
