Publisher's Summary

Return to Hidden Mountain....

Lorelei Stewart has always accepted her role as the town tramp's daughter and has earned her fast and loose reputation. She's a hard woman who pays her way and asks for nothing, but times change. Pregnant and overburdened with responsibility, she's given up on men and has a plan to provide her baby with what she never had as a child; a decent home and a loving mother. The old bootlegger, Rollie Roper, needs a caretaker and has room for Lorelei and her coming child; a fair exchange.

Everything's almost perfect until Rollie's long lost nephew, Cob Thornton, turns up with money and plans of his own and those plans don't include the woman living in his house, yet something about Lorelei fascinates him. He begins to see past the cold armor she wears to protect herself from pain and finds a vulnerable and loving woman within. Now all he has to do, with a little help from old and new friends, is convince the pessimistic Lorelei that sometimes, changing times can be a blessing in disguise.

Strong Can Also Be Sweet

I really enjoyed listening to this book. Jacqueline Rhoades is a new author to me and I am so happy I was able to have this experience. I only wish I listened to book 1 in this series first because I would have had a deeper understanding of the relationships some the characters shared in this story. Ms. Rhoades did a great job of including details that kept me from feeling lost at any time.
The story of Lorelei and Cob seemed like a continuous push and pull until Cob was able to convince Lorelei that he's not there to take what he can get and move on. I loved the interaction between the two very strong personalities as well as the attraction and sensual tension surrounding them. The integrity of the characters remained throughout the book and that was great to see even as they gave in to one another.
Leah Frederick did a great job pulling the characters off of the pages and giving them voices that I could relate to. I think she did a stellar job.

This is a good novel. I see there is another book in the series that started it. I want to see where things all began.

A wonderful southern novel

If you could sum up Changing Times in three words, what would they be?

Hope changes all

What was one of the most memorable moments of Changing Times?

When Loreli first encounters Cob.

What does Leah Frederick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She brings comfort, warmth, and happiness to her performance. She does such a great job I found myself crawling inside this book as if I was a part of the story.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No it's too long.

Any additional comments?

An excellent listen

A most refreshing love story. Lorelei came from an unsavory past and so the story unfolds, with ups and downs galore.
This has been an easy to read and interesting book and I had one of those "oh no, it's finished" experiences when it ended. That doesn't happen too often!
Do yourself a favor - if you like love stories, read this one.

Enjoyed Listening to!

Would you consider the audio edition of Changing Times to be better than the print version?

I think that Frederick brought the characters to life better than I could have if I had read the print version of the book.

What does Leah Frederick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Frederick brings out each character's personality in such an interesting way.

I received this book free from the author, for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book.

Any additional comments?

I was given a complimentary copy of this audiobook by the narrator in exchange for a review. I enjoyed the animation given to each character in this book. Definitely worth a credit! I can't wait to listen to more by this author.

Changing Times

What did you like best about this story?

I really like the plot. You can't let things in the past hinder the future. It is probably the hardest thing especially if we believe we deserve it. A wonderful story on learning how to believe we are worthy of the good things in life. Love comes in all shapes and from different places!

Book two...as amazing as book 1!

--I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

Jacqueline Rhoades continues to bring a wonderful story as the next chapter in this series. Her descriptions of Preston's Mills and Hidden Mountain are beautiful, you can actual see it. But that does not distract from the incredible cast of characters she brings to life in this series. Lorelei is the main character of this story. We met her in the first book, and she becomes the heroine saving Meg and TJ at the end of the book. Now we see her living with Rollie, 8 months pregnant and still stubborn as all get out. She meets Rollie's nephew Cob, and while she doesn't want to give in to his charm, is taken in with his loving ways. We get to live through her life trials with her mother, hang out with the unofficial girls' club, meet her new boss Olivia and enjoy her daughter Abigail. And oh the secrets we learn!!!

Leah Frederick again brings this story to us, with the same voices she uses in the previous story. There is nothing better than putting in your earbuds and recognizing your characters that become your family when you are listening. She is amazing.
