Is the grass always greener on the other side? In this witty comedy, two women question whether their lifestyle is truly what they want. On one side of the world, Vicky is living the single life dream; features director of POISE magazine, no obligations to a husband or children, unless you count her cat Eartha, is free to do what she wants whenever she wants. On the other side of the world you have Amber living the married dream; has the beautiful mansion (pool included), the beautiful wardrobe, the perfect husband, the children, the nanny, the housekeepers. Why is it we always want what other people have? This book just goes to show that appearances aren’t everything. Things can look perfect on the outside, but inner workings are usually a lot more deep seeded than anyone could ever imagine. When Vicky suggests Swapping Lives, the editor of POISE thinks it’s a smashing idea, and the magazine runs an add looking for women to switch lives with. Amber is one of the women to respond, and of course because she lives in America, and Vicky in London, it makes it all the more enticing to pick the American. When the women switch, it leads to epiphany after epiphany as to how their lives weren’t so bad after all. If this book proves anything, it’s to take care of your own grass, and not worry about what’s on the other side of the fence.
