When company director James needs to escape his latest over-clingy relationship, he decides to get away on a sabbatical. A quick search on a house-swapping website reveals a cottage on a small island off the coast of Maine that suits him fine.
Cassie has to be in London for some book research, so she thinks James’ apartment with a doorman would be the perfect spot for her.
Despite James being rather prickly during the initial house swap, the pair soon begin to exchange messages, catching up on news about the neighbours, alpacas and their life stories.
This is a charming story about the bond that develops between two very different personalities living in each other’s homes.
