CHANGE OF HEART                               JUDITH KEIM

Emerson “Em” Jordan always wanted a Valentine’s Day wedding. But after being dumped by her boyfriend, she spends the holiday at Seashell Cottage on the Gulf Coast of Florida with Devin Gerard, a family friend who has no interest in her or any other woman and is instead concentrating on his pediatric medical practice and continuing medical missions in Costa Rica. 

Em, who’s always wanted a large family, doesn’t mind his disinterest. At thirty-two, she’s decided she doesn’t need a husband to have a child or to adopt one. First, she’s going to fulfill her dream of setting up her own landscape design business in upstate New York and has promised to continue to help run her grandmother’s flower shop. 

It isn’t until Em and Devin become friends that Em realizes she might want more than friendship from him. But with his work in Miami and Costa Rica and her busy life in New York, it’s out of the question until something happens that changes everything, even a couple of hearts. 


     I really got into this story.  It was all about family.  Yet, I just wished that Emmerson just would have stood back and not allowed her family to take advantage of her.  Devin did the same too in a way.
     Which is in a way asking her something and then asking her to decide quickly.  I just felt with their friendship being so long and drawn out it just seemed so out of character.
     But when they were around each other they were so connected without even touching.  The looks they gave each other could start a forest fire.  Their long talks sometimes daily were enough to keep them connected living so far away.  It was the glue bonding them.
     See how this friendship finds its way into much more.  Although I enjoyed the book, I just had a problem with how Em was not willing to ask for help.  Not willing to at least from her family.  Also, Devin liking things his way always.
     But I guess it was asking her sister for help that got her the roommate to stay with her at the beach house in the first place.  In the long run, having that horrible break up on the 4th of July ended up being the best thing that ever happened to her.  Valentine’s Day their own private way.
     I give this: 5 stars.  Provided by  Follow us at
