4,5 stars. This is so cute! 
Leena and het grandmother switch lives. So Leena goes to live in a small town and takes on all the chores her grandmother does in het community while het grandma goes to London and does the same. 
This is such a heartwarming story! I LOVE the community feeling and the side-characters both in London and in the small village. I also love the perspective of the grandmother. She is so kind and sassy and just wonderfull to read about! 

The only thing that was "missing" for me was the romance between Leena and her love interest. I feel like there needs to be a part two where they dive into their relationship. Would love to read that! 

Overall this is a really fast, fun and fluffy read. The only "trigger" would be that there is a lot of talk about grief and how to deal with someone passing away too soon. (don't worry, it's not the amazing grandmother. Not really a spoiler because you find out very soon in the book who passed away).

This book tells the story of Leena and her Grandmother Eileen swapping lives for six weeks, both need a break and choose to bark on this adventure. We see Leena move to the countryside where her Grandmother lives, and learns to fit into village life after living and working in London. Meanwhile Eileen has moved into Leena's apartment in London with her flatmates. Eileen tries online dating and going on adventures. Both Leena and Eileen are grieving for Carla, Leena's sister. Grief is woven into the storey beautifully, and the book still remains light in nature. Such a fun read to start the year.
