The Swap
The Swap | Robyn Harding
No list of thrillers is complete without Robyn Harding, proclaims Real Simple. Now the USA TODAY bestselling author of The Party delivers a riveting tale about the toxic relationship between two couples after a night of sexual shenanigans, and the manipulative teenager with an explosive secret at the center of it all. Low Morrison is not your average teen. You could blame her hippie parents or her looming height or her dreary, isolated hometown on an island in the Pacific Northwest. But whatever the reason, Low just doesnt fit inand neither does Freya, a once-famous social media influencer who now owns the pottery studio in town. After signing up for a class, Low quickly falls under Freyas spell. And Freya, buoyed by Lows adoration, is compelled to share her darkest secrets and deepest desires. Finally, both feel a sense of belongingthat is, until Jamie walks through the studio door. Desperate for a baby, she and her husband have moved to the island hoping that the healthy environment will result in a pregnancy. Freya and Jamie become fast friends, as do their husbands, leaving Low alone once again. Then one night, after a boozy dinner party, Freya suggests swapping partners. It should have been a harmless fling between consenting adults, one night of debauchery that they would put behind them, but when one of the women becomes pregnant, Low finds the perfect opportunity to unleash her growing resentment. Robyn Harding brings her acclaimed storytelling, lauded as fast-paced, thrilling, gut-wrenching by Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones & The Six, to this dark and suspenseful thriller for fans of Megan Miranda and Lisa Jewell.

This book was recommended to me via Amazon. I needed a vacation book, so I bought it without even reading the book summary. I loved it! The premise is a couple swaps partners. Which has been covered time and time again. But this is different. It‘s a page turner that keep you guessing. Recommended read!

My reading view today…until about 12:00 when a family of four sat right behind me, turned their radio up and talked incessantly. Usually I don‘t mind if the beach is crowded but there was NO ONE on the beach and plenty of room to spread out😕

Hi friends! Last year I hosted the #Bestof2020Swap. The idea was to reflect on the things that brought you joy throughout the year and share them with someone else, by sending your match some of your favourite books and goodies.

I would love to know how many people would be interested in participating in a #Bestof2021Swap? If there is enough interest, I will post sign ups by the end of this week. Opening day would be January 1, 2022.

Thanks!

This is a speedy read (read the book in only a few hours), but the writing and characters are thin and superficial, and the plot unnecessarily contrived.

SPOILER/TRIGGER WARNING

My issue with this novel isn‘t the storyline, obviously, since I bought it. My issue is that the use of alcohol and drugs are the catalyst for the “swap”, an incident that would not have happened if sober, and was not explicitly spoken about beforehand. Consent was not given beforehand and leaves the characters feeling shame, betrayed. If it had been planned and then regretted, I would have enjoyed the story.

Thoughts?

While written wonderfully, the premise and synopsis felt misleading. There were too many storylines that went unexplored for it to feel complete even though they occasionally intersected with the main arc.

This review will be followed by a blurb (containing spoilers) that goes into my main issue with this novel.

Also, our upstairs fireplace was put to good use this evening while my sister and I talked (way too late). Very #hyggeligt #hygge I‘m so relieved it‘s fall...

In short, this is a story of a toxic group of people with varying degrees of mental health issues all try to be friends with one magnetic person. On its face this might be enough to cause drama, but throw in a marital spouse swap that results in an unintended pregnancy and the sparks really fly. This whole story is really diabolical and twisted. A dark tale indeed.

This is definitely a page turner from beginning to end! I dare someone to start reading and not be so fascinated she tosses this book aside. It‘s that compelling! Once I started reading my initial thoughts were quickly thrown in another direction. The characters are all so completely insane! Or, are they?!

Dark & absorbing, 𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐒𝐰𝐚𝐩 by 𝐑𝐨𝐛𝐲𝐧 𝐇𝐚𝐫𝐝𝐢𝐧𝐠 focuses on 2 couples & a teenage girl caught up in a debacle caused by obsession, compulsion, narcissistic machinations, & weakness. None of them are particularly empathetic or likable, but you won't be able to put down this twisty thriller until you reach the shocking conclusion. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⁣

You know what? I think Low is okay. Yes, she's a whole lot of weird with no sense of boundaries but at the end of the day, she's a decent human being. Now, I can't say the same for that psycho Freya. I can't say that I'm sad about what happened to her in the end. I may have to look into reading more of her books!

The Swap was compulsively readable and fun. It is difficult to explain, but it involves a couple swap with serious consequences and a manipulative teenager who knows too much. I didn‘t see the end coming, which I always appreciate in a thriller. If you haven‘t read any of Harding‘s books, you‘re missing out! 4 ⭐️ #netgalley

While I do have Harding‘s earlier novels on my never-ending TBR, this one is actually my first experience with her writing. Told in multiple perspectives, set on a quiet island, the story centers around Freya- an attention grabbing blonde who manages to hold many under her sway- from an awkward teen, her own celebrity husband and a woman looking for her own dreams to come true. Fast paced and engaging, I enjoyed this one! #NetGalley

3 stars - An escapist read about toxic relationships but more of a drama than a suspense read. A good, readable story but I needed more depth to the characters and I think the lack of Freya's POV greatly influenced my feelings for this book.

There is something about the way that Harding writes that just grabs me from the get go. It is so compulsively readable. This one is set on a small island with a few main players and told from different POVs. Basically what happens when a drug induced evening ends up with a spouse swap? Then throw in a sulky jealous teenager and complications galore. I devoured this one and highly recommend.
Thanks to #Netgalley and Gallery Books for the ARC🖤

Omg. What did I just read? Low's obsession was slightly disturbing. I found myself needing to understand the relationship between Freya and her husband Max. Add to it the odd friendship she built with Jamie and her husband Brian. This book had me hooked from the start. I was engaged from the start and it was refreshing to read, something so different. Thank you #netgalley for this #arc

Loved this book! ⭐⭐⭐⭐
