The Accidental Life Swap is out now and I thought I'd share a quick intro to some of the characters:
Rebecca is feisty on the inside but a bit of a wet lettuce on the outside (sorry, Rebecca, but it's absolutely true). She knows what she wants from life, but she lacks the ability to go for it. When her boss asks her to take over the project management of her new holiday home, Rebecca can’t say no and so she finds herself in the middle of nowhere, in charge of a refurbishment and without a clue of how to manage the project or its builders.
Rebecca’s boss, Vanessa is feisty inside and out. She knows what she wants and doesn’t care what she has to do – or get others to do – to achieve her goals. When the project manager of her holiday home development is unable to continue with the task, Vanessa has no qualms about sending Rebecca to take her place. Rebecca has no experience in project management, nor any desire to carry out the role, but this is irrelevant information. Vanessa has a deadline that must be met and it’s now Rebecca’s responsibility to make sure it all goes to plan.
Stacey has lived in Little Heaton all her life and now runs the animal sanctuary next door to Vanessa’s holiday home. She’s grateful for Rebecca’s help when she arrives in the village, but how will she react when she finds out the truth about her new friend?
Led by Vincent, builders Harvey, Oliver and Todd have been working on the development for the past few months but they’ve fallen behind schedule. With Vanessa’s non-negotiable deadline, can they finish the job on time under Rebecca’s leadership?
Emma is Rebecca’s best friend. She’s a bit of a gossip, but she has a heart of gold and is always willing to lend a hand wherever she can.
Sonia is Rebecca’s workplace nemesis; they started working at Vanessa Whitely Events at the same time but brown-nosing Sonia is climbing the corporate ladder at a pace while Rebecca is still dithering at the bottom, deciding whether it’s safe to take a step up to the next rung. But if Rebecca can pull of the refurbishment, she may finally catch up.
Sometimes one moment can change your life forever…
Rebecca Riley has always been a bit of a pushover. When her glamorous boss, Vanessa, asks her to jump, she doesn’t just ask how high… she asks if her boss would like her to grab a coffee on the way back down!
So whilst overseeing the renovation of Vanessa’s beautiful countryside home, the last thing Rebecca ever expected was to be mistaken for her boss – or that she would even consider going along with it! Far away from the bustling city and her boss’s demanding ways, could she pretend to be Vanessa and swap lives, just for a little while?
