I LOVED the Flat Share, and this one was another light romance with fun characters. I think the Flat Share was my favorite, but if you enjoyed that one then you'll probably enjoy The Switch.

I thought this book was really cute and a sweet story. It hit the spot. I liked the multi-generational perspectives and mixing. I think we all would benefit from that in real life.

A lovely contemporary literature to read ,rather cosy like a warm blanket.  Loved the character growths and the simple writing that reminded me why I loved the author 's first book "The Flatshare" at the first place. Eileen was my favorite protagonist as Leena supposedly with her two possible lover(the unnecessary love triangle) failed to leave a mark on me. The ending was sweet too as I am a sucker for family reunion in books.

"Family can be so complicated, but if you just pick your own way of doing it you can end up with something pretty perfect all the same."
