Two families. One house swap. A vacation to die for.The white-washed Italian villa is perfect. I thought it might feel odd, living in a stranger’s house for the summer, but as my husband and children swim in the infinity pool, I start to relax. And then, in the back of a wardrobe, I find a photograph that shatters everything…Sparkling green eyes, square jaw, lopsided smile. A young man with his arm around a beautiful woman. The picture is old and faded but I’d recognise him anywhere. The man is my husband.But we’ve never met the family we’ve swapped homes with and my husband swears it isn’t him in the photo. He’s lying. We argue on the balcony with the sun setting behind us and I storm out.When I finally calm down enough to go back to the villa to confront him, I find him sprawled across the veranda… dead.Why would someone kill my husband? Am I in danger? And how well did I really know the man I married?Readers are hooked by The Family Holiday:‘I gasped out loud… my jaw definitely dropped firmly to the floor… tremendous and tense… so binge-worthy…This fast-paced and shockingly addictive page turner held my attention perfectly,keeping me guessing until that final twist was laid bare and giving me chills.

What a great job the author did – and the twisty ending is great! I loved the characters and seeing how Beth changes. Definitely a good, quick read!

This was hard to get into, a slow uninteresting story. There is a lot of boring information until the end when it go a little interesting.
This was such a fun read! I started reading and felt like I could not put it down. The chapters were short and fast paced and I loved all the drama. The ending was superb. This will be a great summer read. The descriptions the author used made me want to go on holiday!Thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture for a copy of this digital ARC.
I have never been disappointed with this author. So once again we have a different type of story. One of house swapping. Beth & Niall live in England; Amber & Renzo live in Italy. And they will be swapping their houses for a vacation.But this swap is quite different because we find there are some secrets between the husband of one couple and the wife of the other. And of course there is murder and mystery involved. Another page turner by Boland. #kindleunlimited #fourstars.
