    Sweet Romance

    A wonderfully charming light hearted read. The Accidental Life Swap features a lovable heroine, a mistaken identity, a hot romance and ultimately HEA. Althought the storyline was a bit predictable I still thoroughly enjoyed the book. #TheAccidentalLifeSwap #NetGalley

    Packed with substance. Recommended!

    The Accidental Life Swap took a different course from what I had imagined. I expected this book to be all about glamour and fluff (and a bit of mishaps and embarrassing flops), but it proved that I was in the wrong. This book has got more meat and substance packed in and I quite enjoyed the ride. As I briefly mentioned, I was expecting to be a light comedic read, something you'd expect from Sophie Kinsella, and it is true in the early part of the book where the whole sequence that Rebecca's temperamental boss, Vanessa's fiery and tyrannical temperament is displayed. The writing is consistently strong and crisp, imbued with the right amount of humor, helping move the story forward without a glitch. My biggest apprehension about this book is in fact, the heroine, Rebecca; many of the reviews and even the description say Rebecca is a pushover - my least favorite kind - and I was wary if I would end up hating her to the extent I want to throw the book. Surprisingly enough, which was not the case and I give the credit to the author of steiking the right balance. She created the character arc of Rebecca as meek enough yet in the way it's realistic and readers don't hate her too much. At least I had no problem with her not did I ever get frustrated or annoyed by her as much. I did question Rebecca's ethics regarding keeping up the pretence, though. She puts off confiding in it so long and I was uneasy about all the exercises she cooks up in her head. On the other hand, given it was the pretence and the influence that give her a boost of confidence and made her strong, I came to terms with the idea that readers might want to suspend disbelief and just read along because there's a lot more good stuff coming your way. What really spoke to me about this book is the substance it offers. As I said, this is not your typical fluffy rom-com. It deals with much more substantial topics such as self-confidence, trust, friendship, and betrayal...it was the right amount of everything that makes a book an gripping, glorious read. I especially loved Rebecca's growth and how she finds the gumption and strength that had been bottled up inside her, and unleashes them when necessary. She thought she was an eternal pushover and has no value to offer, but she actually has a lot of talent and she can be strong and determined, not to mention capable of pulling heaven and earth when the need arises. The way she reinvents herself in this book is what kept me engaged throughout, and of course, the bumpy, unsavory events in store for her made this book even more addictive and such a great page-turner. As this book is pretty light on romance, I reckon those who don't relish romance can handle this book as well. The way how the romance develops between Rebecca and Oliver is actually so cute and adorable. Romance develops through the love of board games....slow-burn but the attraction is palpable. It's novel and refreshing, isnt it? This book is almost perfect with hardly anything that I can fault, and the second half particularly the last 20% is quite strong and compelling! My only niggle is the sudden change in a particular character but then again, it's a tiny issue I'm happy to turn a blind eye to. All in all, The Accidental Life Swap is recommended to anyone who enjoys stories on growth and self-confidence. A great read to curl up with in the passing summer and the beginning of autumn.

    The was marketed to readers that love Sophie Kinsella and this did not disappoint. While some have stated that you have to suspend belief that a person really going swap lives with someone this book does a good job at making it as believable as possible. I liked how the main character grew through out the book. That growth felt very nature and not forced or instant change. The plot was easy to follow and well paced. There are several story lines that are weaved through out keeping me interested in the her entire life and not just the life swap aspect. I would highly recommend this to those that are Sophie Kinsella fans.

    Light-hearted Quick Read

    The Accidental Life Swap is a story about Rebecca Riley, a PA who desperately wants a promotion to use her degree, and how she accidentally swaps lives with her boss, Vanessa. Rebecca is unexpectedly thrust into the job of making sure Vanessa's house refurbishment is moving along at the right pace, but people accidentally assume that Rebecca is the boss herself. Should she correct them, or let them go on believing she is the uncompromising Vanessa? I really enjoyed this book. It was a light-hearted, quick read, and I found myself interested in what was going to happen to Rebecca and the other people in her life. I was, at times, exasperated with Rebecca and how she viewed herself, but I got over that pretty quickly. I was surprised by some of the events that transpired, which made the story all that more enjoyable. If you are looking for a quick, fun read, this is a good choice.
