SUMMARY: Two women troubled with guy-problems swap homes in each other's countries, where they each meet a local guy and fall in love.--IMDb
I’ve watched this movie twice already and plan to see it again this holiday season. It is fast becoming a favorite. If you like holiday settings, character growth, a great story, romance or light comedy, you’ll like this movie. It has all of them. And if you’re sentimental, like me, you’ll find yourself getting misty-eyed in places. Definitely a heart-warming, feel-good movie.

Haven't read the book, but saw the movie and enjoyed it.

Thanks for the review. I hate it when I find out there's a book...AFTER I've seen the movie. The book is usually better, but it's ruined for me. (All I can see is the director's vision, not my own.)
