Publisher's Summary

She may not know exactly who is in her house. But she knows why they are there...A house swap becomes the eerie backdrop to a chilling look inside a broken marriage filled with tantalizing secrets. When Caroline and Francis receive an offer to house swap--from their city apartment to a house 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 behaviors, her indiscretions--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. . . . Be careful who you let in. . .

Captivated

I was captivated by this book. A real page turner. The author does a good job of making the characters both likeable and unlikeable simultaneously.

audio sound

The audio of the male character was so creepy with his whispering every word I couldn't stand it after the 9th chapter!

Should be renamed "My Affair"

This was a decent book, but I regret buying it. I was hoping for something more shocking, with thrill and suspense; and I thought that's what I was purchasing. This book is really just about a woman's affair and a mistake she made with terrible consequences. There's really no villain or evil in this story. All this book did for me was make me a little sad for everyone in it. When I wasn't sad I was waiting for Caroline to shut up about her ex lover and start getting almost murdered or something. Again, not a bad book but more of a romance/drama with a dash of mystery.
Holy Hell though, 10/10 on that voice acting! By far the creepiest part of the book.
