--Michelle Anne Schingler, Foreword Reviews
"I loved this Hitchcockian thriller of a woman who innocently swaps houses only to find herself caught upin a web of mystery and intrigue. (Not to mention a bit of romance.) Taut, suspenseful, and fast-paced, THE SWAP is a terrificread. I recommend it highly."
-- Laura Levine, author of theJaine Austen Mystery series.
"The Swap is a twisty, carefully plotted tale of a young American woman plunged into a high-stakes game of criminalintrigue. The biggest treat is watching Nicole Lewis transform herselfinto a resourceful amateur sleuth who finds surprising depths ofcourage--and even a little romance. First-rate suspense."
--Edward Wright, Shamus Award-winningauthor of "From Blood" and other mysteries
"Well written, non-stop, can't-put-it-down suspense."
--Charles Rosenberg, author, best selling mystery "Death on a High Floor"
The mysteries that really send a shiver up your spine are the ones set in the most ordinary places and the most familiarcircumstances. Nancy Boyarsky delivers just that in "Swap," when aperfectly routine vacation home switch quickly goes sideways. And even if the heroine finds it's not her dream holiday, her English adventure gone sinister gives us not only a plot with unexpected hairpin turns, but some top-of-the-bus [or trunk-of-the-car] glimpses of the best English and Scottish sights.
-- Patt Morrison, Southern California journalist, broadcaster and author.
"Delightful. Set amidst the quaint neighborhoods of London and the wild lochs ofWestern Scotland, this tale of a house swap gone criminally wrong willappeal to mainstream mystery fans. Skulking strangers, assumedidentities, and the protagonist's increasingly distant husbandamp up the paranoia and suspense."
-- Denise Hamilton, bestselling author of "Damage Control" and editor ofthe Edgar Award-winning short story anthology Los Angeles Noir.
This is a hold-onto-the-bar roller coaster of a mystery with murder, missing persons, drugs and a little romance. Characters are cheeky, crazy andsome are even lovable. The plot is fast paced, with surprises aroundeach corner. Nancy Boyarsky has written a fine debut novel. This is afirst book in a series, and readers will be waiting for the nextinstallment to see what is in store for Nicole Graves.
