Come Back to the Swap is a very interesting read. In some ways I want to say Bernice is beyond annoying. She’s just one of those females that are in denial a lot. Not necessarily a bad thing. Most times a book that has a character like that needs that character and this is one of those books. Doesn’t mean I didn’t want to shake her.

Laura Morrison did a good job writing this story. I honestly would have never dreamt up such a story. It is definitely unique. The story was very easy to follow. Well except for that trippy scene, but not going to go into detail there. It will all make sense once you read it. Overall, I enjoyed it though.

Chelsea Stephens did a great job narrating the story as well. Everything was very consistent. I could definitely tell each person apart and the whole production flowed well. I can certainly recommend this book. It is a little odd compared to many of the books I have read, but I tend to read a lot of vampires and other paranormal creatures. This definitely puts a spin on things. Hope you enjoy!
