Change of Heart is set in the 1850’s Midwestern United States. Marietta Randolph lives in Chicago, and is forced to travel to the wild lands of Nebraska to pick up her nephew. Zack’s parents, Kathy and Clint, were murdered by “savages”. So, Marietta has to fulfill her legal guardian duties that she agreed to in case anything happened to her sister and and brother in law.
She makes the long trip to Nebraska in a carriage. There she meets Jase, Clint’s brother. Jase is like a second father to Zack, and took him in after his parents’ death.
In the usual fashion of Western romances, you have the incredibly appealing rancher. Add being trapped in a snow storm, and you can probably figure out the rest of that part of the story.
Fran Shaff has the ability to capture the reader’s attention and make her stories so real that the reader just escapes into the fictional world.. The element of grief and family adds depth to the story. I love books like that. It is so nice to escape into another world for awhile.
She has won a number of awards for her Romance writings, as well as Children’s literature. She also won E-Book of the Month Award from MyShelf.com. Most of her books are available for Kindle, and are $3.99 and under.
So, if you’re a fan of sweet romances, give Change of Heart a try. The reviews overall are positive.
“CHANGE OF HEART will touch a place deep in your heart. Marietta, Jason, and Zack all lost people they loved deeply when Clint and Kathy died, together they are able to comfort each other and begin to heal the wounds that are left when something so horrible happens to someone you love. I adored the unselfishness both Marietta and Jason show by their willingness to make sacrifices for Zack. Fran Shaff does an amazing job pulling the reader into the story so that you feel like you’re really part of it. I became so involved, I’d read all the way through the story before I even realized it, and was extremely impressed to find myself so emotionally involved that I cried at several points. “
