A couple struggling to reconnect and rebuild their marriage take a house swap as a chance to get away. Things get creepy.

This was a reasonably good psychological thriller that held my interest all the way to the end. It’s well written; I like the author’s style and voice. The characters were believable, if not terribly likeable. I did feel that the ‘what the heck is going on’ state of mind for the reader went on for a bit long – there were too many questions that were unanswered right until the end, but I guess that’s what kept me reading. I wouldn’t give it five stars, maybe only three and a half, but it’s a pretty decent debut and I would read the author again.
