Paige feels that her life isn’t going
anywhere, or at least anywhere she wants it to. She wants
better things for herself and has skimped and saved to get
the apartment in the “right” part of town and divorced her
high school sweetheart, aka the philandering husband. She
does have a good job but while it is to be a stepping stone
she doesn’t seem to be progressing beyond administrative
assistant duties, but then again she wants the job for the
education reimbursement so it looks like things are heading
in the right direction.
Then she gets an anonymous note, while
she sees it is meant for another apartment in her building
she is compelled to read it. What she finds is an
interesting assignment and decides to follow it. So while
she replaces the note in the neighbor’s mail she continues
to read the ones that show up daily, before moving them to
their proper owner.
Not one to be at all submissive she
finds herself following the notes to a tee. She finds power
in her life just by following the notes. As time goes on it
might just be a switch in roles that she needs to give her
the life boost she needs.
The idea of a mysterious note intrigued
me and is the reason I picked up Switch. I
was intrigued from the moment I read the blurb for
Switch but for me it didn’t live up to the hype that
the blurb created. I found that while Switch
was well written by Ms. Hart that the main character Paige
was such a jerk to the two men I didn’t have an emotional
connection to her. To me there was just something missing,
normally whether the character is likeable or not I am at
least invested in the story to see if they change or what
happens, I didn’t find this with Switch.
