Where could she do that better than in rural Yorkshire at the home of her grandma. 79 year old Eileen on the other hand feels too bored in her small village with no eligible bachelors. Recently deserted by her futile husband, she's looking for new experiences and most of all for some romance. On a whim they decide to swap accomodation, circle of friends and cellphones for 2 months. What is seemingly a light comedy has underneath it all some very serious topics. Which made me like this story even more. I found both storylines equally interesting and grew fond also of the supporting characters, like Arnold, Letitia or Nicola. I'm not sure of such a 'switch' would work for everyone, but it definitely benefited Leena and Eileen, and a whole bunch of other people connected to them, too.

'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?
