The Swap is a murder mystery involving an innocent abroad and a dangerous case of mistaken identity.
The story begins when Nicole Lewis, a young woman living in Los Angeles, arranges a summer-long swap of her condo for a London couple's house. She thinks it's the perfect arrangement. She's always dreamed of seeing the real London, not just the tourist spots. She'll be able to accompany her husband, Brad, on his out-of-town work as a troubleshooter for his company. It will also give her a chance to keep an eye on Brenda, Brad's assistant, who seems to be getting a little too chummy with her boss. But things don't turn out the way Nicole expects.
Within a couple of days, she discovers that Freddy and Muriel Lowry, the Londoners, failed to arrive in LA and appear to be missing. Then people start following her and making threats, demanding information she doesn't have. Nicole realizes she's in serious trouble. But she can't get Brad - busy working - or the police to believe her. Somehow it's up to her to extricate herself from the mess the Lowrys have left behind....

I devoured this page turner and recommend it to mystery lovers who appreciate fine writing paired with a strong female lead character. The writer did a great job of transporting the reader to the UK, from her descriptions of a suburban London neighborhood, to the transit system and the British Museum—and later to Scotland. Jane Oppenheimer's reading is top notch. I don’t agree with the comment posted about the accents. I think she did an excellent job. She even reads the male voices in a believable way.
