A successful, singer Londoner and a comfortable, Connecticut mother of two walk in each other's shoes for a month. A must-read for every modern woman who's ever considered the road not taken. A warm, realistic chronicle of two women who do more than wonder if the grass in greener on the other side of the Atlantic.

Well. I love the idea of this book. I love that it proclaims itself as a book that won't have a prepackaged happy ending. I love that the people in the book are not perfect, dreamboat people. I hate that the revelations themselves are obvious. I enjoyed this book, but I found parts of it to be somewhat grating.

I hate to admit because I am a huge Green fan, but I was disappointed after reading this book. It just wasn't as good as many of her others.

This book was only an ok read. I have loved her other books but this one did not grasp my attention like I had hoped it would. If this is the only Jane Green book you have read and you liked it, then you should read her others I think you would really enjoy them.

This was the first Jane Green book that I have read. It put me off a bit on the rest of her books sitting on my TBR pile. This book read very, VERY slow. At points, I was about to give up on it, but I needed to know how it ended. Pretty predictable ending, not the best writing. It'll be awhile before I pick up another of her books. I hope this was one of her worst because I had such high hopes!

As simple and predictable as this book was- I could NOT put it down! I was a really good book. I liked that it seemed realistic and that it was funny. I could imagine all of the characters pretty well too,

My only complaint would be the dialogue. It was, the same for everyone. Its like all the characters had a somewhat british tone, even the american ones.

But other than that I would recommend for a fun read!

I thought this book took awhile to get going. Once the swap actually happened it became more interesting, but I feel the author rushed the ending. It was built up and up and then it just ended. I wish there had a bit more at the end. It was entertaining for a lazy summer read.
