June Book Club 2020: The Switch by Beth O’Leary

If ever there were a time to read a book that feels like a giant hug, it's now, and The Switch by best-selling author, Beth O’Leary, is just that.

If ever there were a time to read a book that feels like a giant hug, it’s now, and The Switch by best-selling author, Beth O’Leary, is just that.

Full of heart, warmth and laugh out loud brilliance, it’s an unputdownable book you’ll race through but feel utterly gutted to finish. Aren’t they the best kinda books?

Find out how the team rated this month’s book club in the gallery below!

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 eighty. 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?

I want to give this book a try but it doesn’t come out in America until August 18. I’ve loved the other books in the book club though.
