Publisher's Summary

Two childhood playmates grow into more than just friends in number-one New York Times best-selling author Jude Deveraux’s full-length romantic novel based on her short story of the same name.

In the hugely popular, New York Times best seller A Holiday of Love, Jude Deveraux wrote a novella about two kids playing matchmakers - Eli and Chelsea, best friends who were determined to find true love for Eli’s bighearted mother. But what happens when these ambitious children grow up? What exactly made Eli’s mother, Miranda, fall in love with Frank all those years ago? And how does that affect their future together?

Eli and Chelsea lost touch with each other over the years, until Eli bought a house in his father’s hometown of Edilean, Virginia, and invited Chelsea for a visit. She had her own life, and was certain that a childhood friendship couldn't be anything more, but she went nonetheless - and found herself quite unprepared for the changes she saw in Eli. And neither of them were prepared to run into a mystery, with a family that needed to be rescued. Now, just like when they were children, they must join together to straighten out a very big problem. The question is what happens after the mystery is solved; they are very different people - so can they stay together?

Combining love and passion with sweet, unexpected twists, and shedding new light on Miranda and Frank’s relationship, Change of Heart is an unforgettable addition to Deveraux’s classic best-selling novels.

Change of heart

I loved the novella about Frank and Miranda when I read it a while back. The story about Eli and Chelsea made it even better.. This was great and even better with narration.

Not quite predictable.

It's not quite predictable , but with all love stories, it has to have a happy ending. I did enjoy it anyway. Very interesting hoe the two generations were handled.

Waste of credit and waste of time

What would have made Change of Heart better?

I usually love all kinds of books, but I think I have outgrown this kind of unbelievable and flat love story. The conversations are just not realistic, the whole story line feels forced. I don't think the narrator felt comfortable reading the story, and definitely some of the more "passionate" parts, because she might have not believed the story line to be plausible herself.

What character would you cut from Change of Heart?

Abby and her watching them break into the storage hut.

Ms Deveraux is a favorite!

I love all her books! They are brain candy for me. This two part-er was a fun way to fill a road trip. Predictable, but fun!

LOVE IT!

If you could sum up Change of Heart in three words, what would they be?

Returning to Edilean... What more could a Jude Deveraux fan ask for? I loved how the characters from the previous books made an appearance. The story is told with Jude's whit and humor and not one, but several romances! I know that I am not the only Jude Deveraux fan that could read, or in this case listen to, a new Edilean book each and e very year for eternity. This could be my favorite Edilean novel so far. AND Gabra Zackman did a wonderful job reading! I listen to these audio books while I work... Somehow working behind the desk is a little less drudgery and a lot more exciting when Jude Deveraux and Gabra Zackman come along for the day.
