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.

Cautionary tail about an office romance… or is it?

I’ve read enough of these types of books to know that what’s it’s really about is not what you think it’s about at first. There is always an unpredictable twist and that’s part of what I enjoy – trying to figure out what that will be.

This particular plot twist sort of derailed the intrigue and pace for me, but overall I was consistently eager to know what would happen next.

Suspenseful from beginning to end

Great book. Chilling. The beauty lies in the turn of the phrase. I have only written 1 or 2 reviews in the past 10 years, but I enjoyed this book so much that I had to write a review.

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.
