    Description

    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?

    Beautiful story and very touching characters

    I recently discovered Beth O'leary and boy do I love her! Her books are funny, refreshing, and yet still full of lessons or little important stuff to remember. I love the humor of her characters, the strength and the beautiful simplicity yet complexity of all of them. Each is more than what they may seem at first and each bring something to the story.

    👍 À conseiller à votre entourage féminin

    L'audio de ce livre est extrêmement bien fait. Les deux narratices incarnent parfaitement les protagonistes de l'histoire. On se laisse bercer par cette histoire drôle et émouvante. De très belles heures d'écoute...

    uplifting

    This is a positive uplifting story! A bit silly, but in a good way. Witty language that made me laugh out loud on the street. So what if it's a little predictable. A feel-good book for the young and old. It's not a frivolous hahaha book in any way though, it made me think about and re-evaluate my own priorities.

    Narrator

    Book was fun to hear but I was hearing the narrator’s mouth clicks all through! I had to stop listening several times so I cohld focus on something else.
    The books itself is really nice and fun to hear. Light, yet has a message behind it.

    Brilliant!

    Narrators were perfect. Story was so well written. Characters were believable and relatable. I had genuine moments of joy and fun, with a few laugh out loud moments too. I thoroughly recommend this story. It’s an A+!

    easy and funny love story

    Really nice book, sometimes funny, I love how it shows the world from young end old perspective, the love story in the book is expected from the beginning so there is not much anticipation, but still a great listen :)

    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!)
