change of heart



A Colorado senator’s wife, Evelyn Brandt seems to have it all. But her carefully constructed life comes toppling down when the FBI crashes her society brunch with news that her husband has been arrested for embezzlement, and he’s far from repentant. It turns out this was only the start of his indiscretions—for which he has little regret.

As the weeks following the scandal turn into months, Evelyn withdraws, even shirking her duties with the philanthropic Valentine Volunteers. The inquisitive women of the group are determined not to let Evelyn’s divorce destroy her. They have big plans for her to use her long-forgotten artistic talent to reimagine the city’s iconic lamppost hearts. But doing so will force Evelyn to work closely with Trevor Whitney, her ex-husband’s former best friend. Though she and Trevor used to be close—and he’s been letting her hide in his guesthouse—his gruffness conveys his unease with the situation.

Amid the beauty of Trevor’s farm and the comfort of a paintbrush, Evelyn starts to reclaim the dreams she sacrificed to become the perfect politician’s wife. And as creativity inspires them both, Whit begins to see the girl he fell in love with before his friend—and his own mistakes—stole his chance. Possibilities for a new beginning emerge, but long-kept secrets threaten to ruin everything. After so much time, is a change of heart too much to hope for?

My thoughts and giveaway:

There are a lot of things to love about this book. The plot itself is intriguing and then you bring in a cast of wonderful characters.

If you read Courtney’s book Paper Hearts you will be overjoyed to revisit some characters from that book in this one.

But there are also several new characters as well. Evelyn is a woman looking for her identity after everything comes down with her husband. His betrayal is deep and she quickly learns he can’t be trusted and doesn’t want to change. I love when she stood up to him.

Trevor has always loved Evelyn but has tried to move on with little success, but there are added layers here that will keep you guessing as to how this will all play out.

A great romance that will have your heart aching for the characters.
