    Inhaltsangabe

    Eileen is sick of being 79. 

    Leena's tired of life in her 20s. 

    Maybe it's time they swapped places.... 

    When overachiever Leena Cotton is ordered to take a two-month sabbatical after blowing a big presentation at work, she escapes to her grandmother Eileen's house for some overdue rest. Eileen is newly single and about to turn 80. She'd like a second chance at love, but her tiny Yorkshire village doesn't offer many eligible gentlemen. 

    Once Leena learns of Eileen's romantic predicament, she proposes a solution: a two-month swap. Eileen can live in London and look for love. Meanwhile Leena will look after everything in rural Yorkshire. But with gossiping neighbours and difficult family dynamics to navigate up north, and trendy London flatmates and online dating to contend with in the city, stepping into one another's shoes proves more difficult than either of them expected. 

    Leena learns that a long-distance relationship isn't as romantic as she hoped it would be and then there is the annoyingly perfect - and distractingly handsome - school teacher, who keeps showing up to outdo her efforts to impress the local villagers. Back in London, Eileen is a huge hit with her new neighbours, but is her perfect match nearer home than she first thought?

    Lovely story, one terrible speaker

    The person reading the older persons also made me cringe (as someone else pointed out before me). Loved the other one, though, so I managed to finish listening to the book. No huge surprises in the plot, but sometimes that is exactly what you need.

    A bit disappointing

    I found the book too emotional and a little "mushy" with a predictable ending. No surprises at all. There were so many characters; it was difficult to remember who they all were. I struggled to finish it and was disappointed as I had so enjoyed "The Flatshare". On the positive side, the author was trying to deliver some important messages (e.g. coping with loss). I'll try the next book though (fingers crossed).

    😡 Hintergrundgeräusche 🤬

    Ich dachte erst, die Sprecherin von Eileen würde - für Authentizität? - mit dem Gebiss klappern oder sonstwie damit spielen. Es war so enervierend,daß ich zeitweise überlegt habe, ob ich mir das wirklich antun kann, ständig eine Art blubberndes, klapperndes Nebengeräusch zu haben. Ziemlich am Ende war das Geräusch auch bei Leena zu hören - und ganz am Schluss ist es in "Musik" übergegangen. GANZ GROSSER MIST!
    Die Geschichte selbst klang lustig, war es dann aber nur teilweise - aber sie ist gut.

    Empfehlenswert nur, wenn man Störungen ausblenden kann (ich beneide meinen Mann darum!)
