Series: Paper Hearts, Book Two
If you enjoyed Paper Hearts then you aren’t going to want to miss Change of Heart. Courtney Walsh does not disappoint! This is a part of the Paper Heart series, but it can also be read as a stand-alone because it’s about different characters in Loves Park, Colorado.
Change of Heart is absolutely stunning and amazing. It’s inspiring, romantic, and draws the reader closer to God. It’s beautifully written and is a story where characters will learn to forgive and let go. Evelyn is also trying to figure out who she is and who she wants to become. It also has all of the feels. I laughed. I cried. I rejoiced. All of the characters of Loves Park felt as if they were my own friends and family. I wanted to scream at the characters when they did something stupid. Trust me, Evelyn and Trevor can be quite stubborn. However, they grow a lot through this story. Who they were in the beginning isn’t who they are once the story closes. It really is a story about a change of heart.
About the Book
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?
