I had an ARC of this book. I could not put down Change of Heart. If I could, I would have stayed home from work just to read. The characters are highly relatable and Ms. Keim makes them feel like you are best friends with them. I loved that she used places we already know from reading her other books. She put in trips to the Salty Key Inn and Gavin's. I also liked the way she addressed adoption and how the children may not look like their parents. There are some very good sections that I enjoyed ...more

This was an easy enough read. The heroine Em went to the beach cottage to reevaluate her life and find herself. There she meets her sister's friend and best man at the wedding. She didn't notice him at the time cause she was dating someone else. After getting out of a relationship she didn't want anything to do with guys and not be too idealistic. Sure enough he turns out to be good looking and a nice guy just wrong timing for them.

Devin her housemate is a doctor who works in Miami and goes on

This is the third book I’ve read by Judith Keim and I look forward to reading many more of her books. Change of Heart is an emotional read about Emerson “Em”Jordan and Devin Gerard. This book will draw you in right away and will have you wanting more at the end. Em and Devin start out as friends and Em has decided that’s all they’ll be. Devin works in Florida and offers his medical services in Costa Rica. Em knows she can’t leave her family in Ellenton, New York. I won’t leave any spoilers, but ...more

This a great Feel Good book! The characters are believable and the story, though predictable, is accomplished in a clever way. The issue of child adoption is treated well.

Judith Keim enjoyed her childhood and young-adult years in Elmira, New York, and now makes her home in Boise, Idaho, with her husband and their two dachshunds, Winston and Wally, and other members of her family.

While growing up, she was drawn to the idea of writing stories from a young age. Books were always present, being read, ready to go back to the library, or about to be discovered. All in
