Swapping Lives by Jane Green

Genre: Chick Lit

Victoria Townsley is the features director of one of England’s top magazines “Poise”. Her deepest desire is to marry and raise a family, but none of her relationships are cooperating in attaining her dreams.

Amber Winslow, a married woman with two children living in the United States, is bored. She wants more out of life besides being a wife and mother, especially when she has a nanny to care for her children. She spends most of her time hobnobbing with her wealthy friends.

Vicki comes up with a great idea, to swap lives with a married woman and get a taste of the life she so craves. After reading the entries of many married women, Vicki comes across Amber’s entry. She’d not only be living Amber’s life, but she’d have to go to the United States to do it. Both women are sure this is one adventure they can’t turn down.

Amber’s husband and children aren’t quite on board with the idea, but realize they don’t have much choice. The swap is made and each woman gets a taste of the life they want so much. However, is the grass really greener on the other side? The women are about to find out.

I listed to the audio version of this one. It’s another fun read. I enjoy listening to the audio versions of chick lit. It makes a great diversion on my way to work and helps me to unwind at the end of the day, too. I just have to remember to concentrate on the road. LOL

I’ve never read anything by Jane Green, but I’ve heard a lot about her and she’s definitely an author I’ll be watching in the future.


  1. This sounds like a fun, enjoyable book to read. I love the cover, it's so pretty. I've noticed other covers on Jane Green's books and they're always eye-catching!
    Thanks for a great review!

  2. Sounds fun :D I have read some Jane Green and why not this one too

  3. This does sound like fun. I've yet to listen to a book on audio, I need to try it.
    Great review.

  4. I really need to read a Jane Green book. I keep hearing good things about her!

  5. I haven't read anything by this author before but after that review, I will be! I look forward to picking this up : )

    I have a suggestion for you too! I think you would really love a book I wrote called 'Knickles and Dimes'. It's a fun read, with laugh-out-loud characters and a great story. I hope you'll check it out!

    Thanks for the review!
