Verdict: This should feature in                  your 2018 tbr list for beach reads.

Thank you to Netgalley, the publisher and the authors of this book. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. 

This story is written in alternating POVs of the main characters Sabrina and Addi. The two meet in an airport. Two strangers; Sabrina who had just run away from her wedding by escaping through a window and Addi who was bored with going to weddings when she did not see hers happening anytime soon. A long conversation in an airport and they get the crazy idea to switch lives. Normally people will joke about something like this and forget about it but not this two.

They actually switch lives! The switch obviously brings about some changes in their lives. At a personal level they develop and find themselves. One of the characters also finally gets the courage to stand up to her mother. There is some romance of course. One of the ladies falls in love with an unexpected someone(you just have to read the book to find out).

It was quite entertaining to read about how they navigated each others lives business all the while trying to find themselves and enjoying their new homes. Although the two characters were too similar, l loved Addison more. Something about her way of thinking reminded me of myself.

I think this book would have been so much better if the characters were not a copy of each other in many aspects. Sometimes I could not tell who was who until Sabrina thought of her almost wedding then I could tell. The ending also seemed rushed to me with the authors trying to tie all loose ends as fast as possible. The romance was weird and I wish it could have been better developed so that all the feelings involved would seem realistic.

Nevertheless if you are looking for a beach read, a chicklit book to add to your tbr list or just a quick and fun read then this is the book for you.
