I started reading the book and was immediately drawn into the quirky conditions of the will that Mr. Hayes had drawn up for Tyler and Kate. I knew then on that this book was going to be about how 2 individuals change when circumstances bring them together.

I loved Kate as a character. I felt she had a lot of depth. I read that the book had been redone as a Christian Fiction and you could make that out because Kate was so strong in her faith. Another character who I really loved was Evelyn, Kate's

Before you read further, please note that I was contacted by the author and asked if I would read the book and post an "honest" review. I have written to the author and suggested some things that I hope will make future work even better. Here is my review:

Moving On is a good work by a new, young author who is striving to Move On herself in her skills and creative writing world. The book could use a good editor to take care of some grammar issues and also some wrong wording that can easily be cor

This book brings to us a christian based romances, with a couple of good splashes of suspense. Which shows that even though the author reworked the book she still followed the same story which is good. I loved the characters and how the story flowed. You can see how the main characters Tyler and Kate grow throughout the book to become the people that they need to be to be happy in life. It's nice to see that in a book, the author shows you the struggles. The side characters make this book what i ...more

Normally I would only only give a book with editing this poor one star, if I finished it at all. But I did finish it, and I did like the characters, so I bumped it to two.

I was expecting cute, fun chick lit, so my suspension of disbelief covered the fact that the guy would be crazy rich at 28. It was inherited wealth after all. But Katie had a working class background and Eve had a rough upbringing and they're also rich at 25? And of course all the friends are rich . . . OK, well it's chick lit

Moving On: A Perfect Story for a Winter Night

Trisha Grace does it again, with a strong plot, full of suspense and romance. This one is perfect, a seemingly haunted old mansion, ghosts playing the piano, or dancing on the lawn, and even rescuing the heroine from a fire, and a dashing rich hero to come to her rescue. And in the midst of it all, there is a strong teaching from God about his protection at all times. Again, the plot and characters are strong and well presented. But also again, the En

I was sent this book from the author for an honest review. As we all know I'm not one to sugar coat my reviews, I'm happy to announce, I LOVED THIS BOOK! I read over some reviews on amazon before I started the book, and after reading it I'm surprised at some of the lower ranking ones. Every reader is entitled to their own opinion, everyone knows I am, but I am truly surprised that there are 1 and 2 star reviews! I'm not sure if it was before the "remake" of Moving On, but to each their own I sup ...more

Author Trisha Grace introduces readers to a delicious cast of characters, each fighting their own demons, in the book Moving On.

Kate Mitchell had little idea that befriending William Hayes could leave such an impact on her life. The man who she first thought was a patient at an elder home actually turns out to be a very wealthy man who is tormented with demons from the past. His long estrangement from his grandson Tyler consumes his thoughts during his last days on earth and a deathbed promise

It's been a long time since I last read a Christian Romance book and I always love the glorious feeling I get whenever I finish reading one.

Moving On is a great love story of two strangers who were forced to stay together in a mansion because of a recently deceased (Mr. Hayes) last will & testament. Tyler was forced out of the mansion at a young age when he was abandoned by his grandfather after his parents died in a house fire. He never got the chance to be with him in 20 years, until Mr.

This author should never ever dare show up at my house. The only thing that would happen would be screaming "Why, why did you leave me hanging?" It was an amazing book it had me pacing in all the right paces and wishing I were Kate in most parts. AMAMZING BOOK!!

Although the author contacted me about reading the book, the book description intrigued me enough to want to read it. Once I began reading, the characters, their lives and how they all intertwined, kept me reading. I enjoyed reading it, and when I got to busy to read, the characters and what was happening was always in the back of my mind. I'm not to sure about the ending. It left me with unanswered questions. I will definitely read the next book hoping to find those answers. I LOVED IT and reco ...more

The only thing Tyler Hayes wanted from his estranged grandfather’s estate was the mansion he should have grown up in.

Kate Mitchell wanted nothing from the estate of the old man she befriended in her father’s senior’s home, but she received his mansion.

Kate had heard all about the accident and what it had done to the Hayes family, but Tony had never returned home so he had never met Kate. The only way to return the mansion to Tyler was going to take a little ingenuity and a lot of perseverance.

Frances Rogers

Some of the characters are unbelievable. There was some action towards the end. There was a recurring ugly word not usually found in Christian fiction. I believe there are angels, but I don't believe people become angels when they die. No Gospel message, not much loving forgiveness between sisters - maybe in the next book. No conclusion regarding the murder mystery. I don't care to read the next installment to find out!

Great story, great intrigue. What I loved about this story was the beautiful Christian theme of compassion, forgiveness and love that continued to the end. Surely many of us need to remember these Christ-like traits. In fact we never stop learning if we are wise and willing. Of course also having a happy ending is a good reward and leaves the reader with a greater feeling of peace and contentment. We all need this in our uneasy times.

I got this book free for an honest review and wow! Do not believe all the reviews you read. This book was inspirational and full of passion, romance, love, friendships and family. I started this book early afternoon and finished early evening. It was so captivating I couldn't put it down. A touching story of how 2 lost souls come together. Yes some grammar issues but I find those in print books as well. No big deal. I can't wait for book 2
Sep 11, 2014 Sonia rated it liked it
I would have given this four stars, but a few of the characters irritated me and seemed to "limited" in their scope - feeling just one-dimensional - that I was frustrated when they came on the scene. However, I liked it enough that I would like to read the other books in the series. I did enjoy the morals of the book and the fact that it was a clean romance/mystery. I wish the mystery had been solved at the end, though.
Aug 19, 2015 Rebecca rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
The only thing that really bothered me about this book was that the mystery was not resolved. I like sequels, but I don't like books that end with loose strings, almost requiring you to read the sequel to find out a major plot resolution.

This book reads like a poorly written first draft. I agree with others here that the premise sounded very intriguing, but I keep getting derailed by continuity errors and badly managed dialogue. Perhaps with proper editing this could have been saved, but most likely not.

The show stopper for me was when they were at the ranch and Ty asked the ranch hand to make the horse sit so she could get on, and then again when they were finished riding. Perhaps the author was confusing horses with camels, b

Interesting idea
Junior high writing

I should have read the other reviews before downloading this book, not just looked at all the stars. The book sounds like it was written by a middle schooler, and so do many of the 5-star reviews. I really wanted to like this book, because the premise is interesting, but I just can't recommend it.

I still do not understand why this book received some poor reviews. Yes, there are grammatical issues. I truly hope.the author will use the full word "because" in the future. For a first attempt this is a lovely book. I liked the premise and the supporting characters. I look forward to the sequels.

I want to like this book. Really, I do. The story idea is good, but I cannot get past the poor editing! I've never read this author before but her elementary writing is not convincing me to pick up anything else of hers. I am not quite half-way through and not sure if I'll be able to finish.

This book was crazy bad. How did both characters change so dramatically within second of meeting each other? Plus, three women got slapped by another woman. What the heck? I was dumb-founded by that. Glad it was free
On my Kindle. The epilogue was even lame.
