Publisher's Summary

When twenty-five-year-old Lyn sets off on her cruise vacation, all she wants is to forget that her dead fiance was a cheating scumbag. What she plans is a diversion uncomplicated by romance. What she gets is Braedon, an intriguing young surgeon. He's everything her fiance wasn't, and against the backdrop of the ship's make-believe world, her emotions come alive.

Unaware of the sensitive waters he navigates, Braedon moves to take their relationship beyond friendship - on the very anniversary Lyn came on the cruise to forget. Lyn's painful memories are too powerful, and she runs off in a panic.

But it's hard to get away from someone when you're stuck on the same ship. Things are bad enough when the pair finds themselves on one of the cruise's snorkeling excursions. Then paradise turns to piracy when their party is kidnapped, and Lyn's fear of a fairy tale turns grim.

    Story
    "Full of emotional ups and downs."

    This is a story full of adventure, danger, catastrophe, survival, loss and hope. Shipboard romance becomes something stronger under survival conditions on an uncharted island. Then everything changes disastrously. No spoilers here. The characters are strong and real. There is a nice continuance or re-emergence of characters throughout the story. The narration was very good and enhanced the tale. Very engaging. Heard to stop listening.

    Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.

    Story
    "Cliche, but I liked it anyway"

    The publisher's summary doesn't offer much concerning the plot after the cruise setting, which was an important strategy. I know I would not have selected this if I had an idea of the plot - it's been done and redone a million times. Even so, not knowing where the author was headed helped me enjoy this book much more that I otherwise would have; so, I will carefully leave out anything that might spoil the story for others.

    Weaver is a competent writer, but offers little originality in either her plot or characters. Even so, the story grew on me as I listened. This is a clean (no steamy bedroom scenes), straightforward story with two sweet protagonists who have fairly normal childhood backgrounds. The female carries with her some baggage from a previous relationship, so their romance (of course) has a bumpy start. I liked the couple, but the author does not explore their emotions in great depth. I felt she could have done much more with their feelings about each other. Leaving out bedroom scenes and lustful thoughts does not have to result in a void of intimacy altogether.

    The reader was average and sometimes read in slow motion - I sped up the play back. She struggled with some accents, which was distracting at times.

    Overall, story lacked originality and depth, but the author's writing skills and likeable protagonists made this book work for me.

    "Fun read. Great characters.Interesting locales"
    What made the experience of listening to A Change of Plans the most enjoyable?

    I'm picky about my narrators, and I think Kruper did a wonderful job.


    What other book might you compare A Change of Plans to and why?

    Any book that combines high adventure, romance, and tragedy but still manages to come off hopeful.


    Which character – as performed by Karen Kruper – was your favorite?

    Jori. Loved that hint of an accent.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Um...
