Such a different story with laughs and tears

I found this book quite captivating. The family featured were all having crisis of all different types and weren't sure which way to turn. Dave and his wife Jess were in totally different occupations; Dave being an artist and a teacher in that subject, and Jess an expert in dealing with accountancy. Jess does not feel at all appreciated and she is literally fed up with it all. When the holiday she had planned with her family fell through she ends up swapping houses with River, a script writer, living in LA. This was to last several weeks. Lots of changes in their lifestyles ensued.
Their son, Alex, was saying everything was great in his job and he was feeling fine but was that actually true.
The lady, River, who she swops with, is a script writer with a deadline to keep.
Some parts in this book are funny, some very sad, but in all, the book was very entertaining.
