I really enjoyed this book about two strangers pathes crossing in an unusual way. I thought this was one of Sisman's better books.

This was a fun quick read. It is a story about a guy from New York and a girl from London who participate in a job swap sponsored by their advertising company. The book was pretty cute and predictable like most chic lit but it was an enjoyable story. I especially like the way it describes the two cities very well.

This is a fun, light read, reminiscent of Jane Green or Helen Fielding. I enjoyed the settings of London and NYC.

Originally published in the U.K. in a slightly different form and with the title Perfect Strangers (1998), this spirited story by the author of the bestselling Weekend in Paris features a romance that blossoms thanks to a transatlantic apartment swap. Londoner Suze Wilding swears she'll never get married; New Yorker Lloyd Rockwell has the perfect girlfriend. They both work for the ad agency Scheider Fox, but Suze is a bit low on the totem pole on the U.K. side and Lloyd's sort of a hotshot in Manhattan. What will bring them together? How about a month-long job exchange that also has them living on each other's turf? Everything's going swimmingly until golden boy Lloyd gets accused of leaking confidential company information and is fired, and Suze's love life implodes. The two start talking on the phone, and they decide to clear Lloyd's name. There's never any doubt that they willand that they'll find love along the waybut Sisman offers plenty of twists and turns, and both surprisingly sad and wickedly funny scenes along the way.
