'SO CHARMING, SO SWEET AND SO LOVELY' MARIAN KEYES

Leena is too young to feel stuck.

Eileen is too old to start over.

Maybe it's time for The Switch...

Ordered to take a two-month sabbatical after blowing a big presentation at work, Leena escapes to her grandmother Eileen's house for some overdue rest. Newly single and about to turn eighty, Eileen would like a second chance at love. But her tiny Yorkshire village doesn't offer many eligible gentlemen... So Leena proposes a solution: a two-month swap. Eileen can live in London and look for love, and L Leena will look after everything in rural Yorkshire.

But with a rabble of unruly OAPs to contend with, as well as the annoyingly perfect - and distractingly handsome - local schoolteacher, Leena learns that switching lives isn't straightforward. Back in London, Eileen is a huge hit with her new neighbours, and with the online dating scene. But is her perfect match nearer to home than she first thought?

Beth O'Leary is a Sunday Times bestselling author whose novels have been translated into more than thirty languages. Her debut, The Flatshare, sold over half a million copies and changed her life completely. Her second novel, The Switch, has been optioned for film by Amblin Partners, Steven Spielberg's production company. Beth writes her books in the Hampshire countryside with a very badly behaved golden retriever for company. If she's not at her desk, you'll usually find her curled up somewhere with a book, a cup of tea and several woolly jumpers (whatever the weather).

Reviews for The Switch

The new Jojo Moyes ... This has all the ingredients of Me Before You... seriously funny - Cosmpolitan on The Flatshare Deliciously funny and truly uplifting, this is a heartwarming story of friendship, love and starting over. I adored Tiffy and Leon, and you will too - Lucy Diamond on The Flatshare Utterly charming. Written with care and love for her characters, O'Leary manages to conjure up a Richard Curtis rom-com that also has its feet firmly planted in real life. The concept isn't stretched beyond credibility and, above all else, it's funny and winning. A real treat - Stylist Touching, funny and skilful, a delightful read - Katie Fforde The Flatshare is a huge, heartwarming triumph - Josie Silver, author of One Day in December, on The Flatshare
