I liked the story because there were enough secondary characters and crazy situations to keep it fun, interesting and unpredictable. The development of the main characters' relationship was believable and natural. The mystery wasn't resolved too quickly and kept me wondering until the end -- and I usually have things figured out early. Despite the mystery and mild danger, it is still a light, fun read.
This most positive thing I can say about Changes of the Heart is that it is a quick read. The cover of the book alludes to it being a Christian romance, but the cover is about the only place where God is referenced. I felt like it was a little bit romance, a little mystery, but overall it just fell short for me. The characters were very one dimensional- either "good" or "bad" - not very developed. The end felt a bit contrived. Perfect for beach reading when you don't want to get terribly involved can with a story.
The romance is clean and sweet and yet totally heart-throbbing. Passion aplenty with lots of tingles and turning to puddles of goo but no inappropriate touching, clothes being removed or bedrooms being entered other than to place a patient who has passed out on the bed. Warning: sexual assault is dealt with in this story.
Suspense - yep! Plenty of that as well. I gave up counting how many times Grace was in danger and I liked that she rescued herself some of the times. It didn't always have to be the big strong hero although these lines had me laughing:
Grace: "Micah, how did you know I was in trouble after you went into the diner?"
Micah: "I'm getting very familiar with the sound of your scream."
In fact she rescued him once! I was a little surprised by who the bad guy was at the end of the story (not sure that the reader really could have figured it out from what was revealed previously in the story) and there were some lose ends that weren't really wrapped up to my satisfaction regarding the sexual assault but hopefully justice will ultimately be served on all the bad guys in the story (maybe there will be sequels?)
Language - Grace's best friend Chelsea has a persona designed to irritate her mother which includes cussing but only about 3 or 4 cuss words actually appear in the book and she is a changed person (Grace thinks aliens have taken over her friend) by the end of the book when she falls in love with a man who doesn't like the cussing.
Religion - a little bit of talk about God and divine intervention vs. coincidence near the end of the book. The tagline on the book is "A coincidence is God's way of staying anonymous." Also Grace wonders if she really did get a miracle when she prayed for one as a child regarding her mother's cancer. "I prayed for a miracle. I thought my prayers weren't answered, or that the answer was a continuous no, but could I've been looking at it wrong? Could the answer to my prayers have been that my mother lived long enough - she had lived - long enough?"
I thoroughly enjoyed this story and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a sweet, uplifting story that will keep you interested and turning the pages.
