    1. This is the second book I have read by this author & it is just as good as the first one. I love a Christmas book & really enjoyed this story. A lovely story. Thanks to TBC for the review copy in exchange for an honest review.


    2. 4.5 StarsI love holidays, I love Zara Stoneley books, I love Spain and Tippermere and I love romance. If you are like me and love even some of those things, then I would suggest you may really enjoy The Holiday Swap. It's a story that feels like its loosely based on the festive film The Holiday, but with slightly less focus on Christmas, and more on the circumstances for the swap, and the two destinations. For fans of Zara Stoneley, yes I mentioned Tippermere, we return there, but more to the ou [...]


    3. Firstly, another big thanks to TBC and the author for allowing me a copy in exchange for an honest review. I have started my Christmas reading early with this one (EXCITING!). This story reminds me of the film The Holiday as its similar with the holiday swap idea BUT totally different. Yes. I loved it. The cover is beautiful, it is written beautifully and it gives you a free vacation to Barcelona! It also has the perfect ending and I am a sucker for a great ending. The Holiday swap is the perfec [...]


    4. Definitely recommend this book.I just love books about Christmas. And as soon as I saw the cover and name I knew it was one I wanted to read. Similar story to one of my favourite movies, The Holiday, so I was hoping I would enjoy this as much. And it didn't disappoint. Daisy is shocked at a proposal she receives from Jimmy and Flo is devastated at not receiving a proposal from Oli. Both needing time to think about their futures, they decide to swop homes in the lead up to Christmastime. Flo head [...]


    5. My favourite Christmas film of all time is The Holiday, so when I read about this book I just knew I had to read it.I certainly wasn’t disappointed. The characters where lovely and Zara’s writing makes everything seem so real and cosy. This book is a hot chocolate, curled up on the sofa with a snuggly blanket kind of book. Its a fabulous heartwarming what’s going to happen next book. All in all I really and truly drank in this book in one sitting as I could not put it down.This book will m [...]


    6. All reviews can be found on my blog at thewritinggarnet.wordpressThank you to the TBConFB family for allowing me to get all festive in August!I'll be honest, the first thing that came to my mind when I read the title was the movie 'The Holiday'! I think my fingers were slightly crossed for it to be similar because I ADORE that film, but I have never read a book that had the same feel to it. Until now.I am quite ashamed to admit that this is the first book of Zara's that my eyes have had the plea [...]


    7. Get ready to raise a glass of Cava as Tippermere is back but with a little Spanish twist! I love the Tippermere series (I have to admit that my own Cheshire village comes very close to all the fun and drama but maybe doesn't have quite as many gorgeous single men!) but here we get twice the fabulous settings as the cosy Cheshire village is romantically twinned with bustling Barcelona for a Christmas treat! And although Tippermere is the location for one of the swaps this is a standalone book so [...]


    8. Excuse me while I SQUEEEEEEEEEEE! This book is so cosy and adorable it left me with a feeling of contentment which I wish I could contain in a bottle and get a little bit out each time I need to feel comfortable.I was rather dubious reading a 'Christmas' book in September but there is a lot more to this than that, yes it does gently guide you towards the festive season but the whole story is set in a very short time-frame with a huge amount of action.Close friends Daisy and Flo have both had a r [...]


    9. I received a copy of this via the publishers and NetGalley in return for a fair and honest review.Hands up who has ever wanted to just get away from it all?! Most of us then!! And in this book we follow Daisy and Florence who have those exact thoughts when things aren't quite turning out the way they had hoped in their respective lives!Daisy is a real home bird and is happy to stay in the little cottage in the middle of nowhere with her dog Mabel, and naughty horse Barney. But she feels trapped [...]


    10. Flo and Daisy are old friends. After spending a weekend in Barcelona they agree to swap homes for a couple of weeks to give each other a well needed change of scenery. They are both at a crossroads in their personal lives and the break gives them both a hint of new romance and able to make decisions about their futures.The characters are all well drawn and interesting. The settings in Barcelona and the Cheshire countryside provide great contrasts and ideal opportunties for unexpected romantic em [...]


    11. Thanks to TBC for a free copy of The Holiday Swap in exchange for an honest review.Two women, two very different lives – one perfect solution to escape festive heartbreak!Tucked away in the idyllic English countryside, Daisy Fischer’s cosy little cottage has always been her safe haven. But when her completely dependable boyfriend issues her an ultimatum, Daisy realises there’s a whole world out there she’s missing out on.Florence Cortes’s life couldn’t be better – gorgeous apartmen [...]


    12. Daisy is quite content with her life in Tippermare until her on/off boyfriend Jimmy proposes out of the blue, suddenly she realises that she wants more from life, she wants to travel and see the world and if she marries Jimmy she will probably never get outside the UKFlo thinks she has everything in life, a great flat in Barcelona and a gorgeous boyfriend Oli who she owns a business with, so when he books a trip to Paris on their anniversary she is convinced that he is going to propose. Unfortun [...]


    13. I really enjoyed this, it's a great light-hearted read - there are some great characters and it made want to visit Barcelona :) It's a great beach read (and a good one to read at Christmas too)


    14. A lovely story of two women who's lives are changed by unexpected events. This is not my normal type of genre but I absolutely loved the story so much I stayed up until 3.20am to finish it!The story focuses on Daisy and Flo, friends from school with very different lives, one stayed in Cheshire the other moved to Barcelona. As events in each of their lives take an unexpected direction a mutual friend suggests that they go to Barcelona for a break This leads to Daisy and Flo swapping places, and t [...]


    15. What an absolutely heart warming read - a total huggly book!! Being a fan of Lindsey Kelk and Sophie Kinsella, this was totally on my wavelength. Daisy lives in Cheshire in a cosy cottage. She has a comfortable life working as a dog groomer and looking after Mabel (her dog) and Barney (her cantankerous horse). Her boyfriend Jimmy thinks they should settle down but she's not convinced.Flo lives in Barcelona and works on a lifestyle magazine with her boyfriend Oli. She has the perfect life and can [...]


    16. The holiday swap focuses on the lives of two friends Flo and Daisy who are both having difficult times at home with the men in their lives. After a weekend spent together, they decide to swap lives and houses for a couple of weeks before Christmas. I really enjoyed this novel and it flew by as I was easily absorbed into Barcelona and Cheshire. Daisy and Flo were lovely characters who were well described and rounded along with the new men who had appeared! The descriptions of the different locati [...]


    17. I received a copy of The Holiday Swap from TBC THE Book Club in exchange for an honest review.Daisy and Flo are friends who find the perfect solution to their respective problems. A bit like a certain film they think that each would be happier in the others life. The story flits between both friends in an easy and very readable way. You immediately warm to both characters and, although you can see what will happen, you aren't in a hurry. I read this on holiday and felt as though I was flitting b [...]


    18. I was given this book by TBConFB in return for an honest and impartial review.This was a great story and would be wonderful read during the festive season however, reading it on a beach in the summer did not detract from the story.I enjoyed the author's portrayal of all the characters and quickly formed an attachment to the leading ladies. However the main men left a lot to be desired which again made you want the swap to work for the girls. The story is a little predictable but a very enjoyable [...]


    19. This is the first book by Zara Stoneley that I have read. I loved her writing style and all of the characters. This book is about getting a second chance at love and life. I loved the fact that the story jumps between 2 settings, the tapas and wine tours seems like something that I would enjoy tremendously. The ideal holiday romance as well as something to read when on holiday or when you just want to escape everyday life.Thank you to #TBConFB and Zara for the opportunity to review The Holiday S [...]


    20. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC from TBConFB for an honest review. Two school friends living complete different lifestyles need some space to get away from their current partners.Having swapped to each other's locations, we read how they begin to claim back their lives and decide on their futures.Great descriptions of the various locations helped to recreate the scenes and build up the characters. A great easy read!


    21. The Holiday Swap By zara stoneley is a romance read. Two women, two very different lives – one perfect solution to a Christmas holiday fraught with potential pitfalls - The Holiday Swap.This was a really good read. I loved Daisy. She was my favourite character. This really picked me up. A lovely romance read. I loved the story and the characters. Highly recommended. 5*. Thanks to tbc on fb for the arc.


    22. I think I have read most of Zara Stoneley's Tippermere books and enjoyed them all. This story and slightly different characters and settings was even more satisfying than the previous.You sort of know what will happen but both stories are credible and set in a relationship place. I do love Aries that follow characters but also, as in this case, series which follow a place so main characters in previous books are in the corners of this tale. More please.


    23. I really enjoyed this light-hearted read. I found myself rooting for the characters and wishing them well! The writing is witty and engaging. I would recommend The Holiday Swap to anyone who needs cheering up.


    24. This was a cross between a Jilly Cooper romp and a Veronica Henry rural tale - and I enjoyed it. Great characters in Daisy and Flo (plus Hugo and Javier) along with a supporting cast of dogs, chickens and horses. As the title suggests this is a perfect holiday read.



    25. Where there is a swap, there I am I LOVE books about swapping. I love films about swapping. Heck, I don't usually watch films, there are only a few of them that I can watch again and again, I love "Bridget Jones" and "My Big Fat Greek Wedding", and I also love "The Holiday", and so Zara Stoneley couldn't come up with a better idea for her newest release "The Holiday Swap" (what else?). Moreover, I love Zara Stoneley and I love holidays and I was really super - duper excited when the book has lan [...]


    26. This is a good read for a long cold winter night. Two friends Florence and Daisy, have man trouble. They decide to swap homes for the weeks leading up to Christmas. Florence leads a sophisticated life in Barcelona as a digital magazine author. Daisy is a down to earth dog groomer living in Cheshire, She has a remote cottage, a horse and a very large dog. Can this holiday swap bring them the happiness they long for?


    27. I think like a lot of people the title and description of this book reminded me of the film 'The Holiday' which I absolutely love, and whilst in different countries and not exactly the same it was still reminiscent of it, so I was very happy!Daisy lives in Cheshire and after a really unromantic proposal from her long term on/off boyfriend and a bit of an ultimatum from him to 'spend December doing whatever these things are', i.e. doing a bit of living away from the village she grew up and lived [...]


    28. Firstly thank you to Harper Impulse for a review copy of this title via Netgalley. I’d never read anything by Zara before however I’d seen nothing but rave reviews on Twitter so I knew I was in for a treat. This is a festive novel with a Spanish twist. Friends Flo and Daisy are both at turning points in their love lives and with they come up with a bit of a life swap to give each of them some space from their day to day lives. While Daisy jets off to Barcelona and decides to stick around for [...]


    29. No wonder there are so many wonderful reviews written about this book because The Holiday Swap is absolutely fabulous! You can find hot sizzling romance, beautiful friendships, heroines taking chances and courageously starting new and exciting chapters in their life.Daisy Fisher wants more excitement in her life, and she is not so sure if her boyfriend's proposal is the right thing for her right now so she decides to swap her idyllic life in an English countryside for a vibrant and colourful Spa [...]
