Book Review: Changing Lives by Tracy Kincaid

I have to admit that though the book was written well, it isn’t my cup of tea and I had a difficult time really getting into the book. Changing LivesChanging Lives cover Tracy Kincaid is a pure, sweet romance with a supernatural twist. Pure romance does not capture my imagination as well as other genres and I cannot put myself into the shoes of a reader who loves strictly sweet romance. I do believe that romance readers will love this one. A twist on a timeless classic.

The story is told in first person present point of view. Though I generally do not have a problem with point of view, this POV made it difficult for me to feel the emotions and environment of the characters. I could not relate to the main character or love her hero as intended. Ms. Kincaid did do a good job of characterizing the romantic hero with the appropriate social mores of the time. He was a perfect gentleman and doted on the main character, but the story seemed slow to unfold for me. The mystery surrounding the romantic hero and how he is able to be where he is seemed a bit far fetched and inexplicable. The premise is a bit hard to believe, but, throwing out suspension of disbelief, this sweet romance has a great happily ever after ending.

This book is appropriate for youth as young as 15 or 16 and adults who love sweet romance with a happily ever after. I give this a three star rating because of my personal preferences but can see readers who love this type of story giving Changing Lives a higher rating.

I am a retired grandmother and amateur quilter. Generally I do not discuss religion and politics with people other than my family and even then I do more listening than talking. Because I dislike confrontation this blog is a way for me to express opinions that I hold on these and other issues without having to delve into controversial discussions with others who may not agree with me. I am also an avid supporter of indie authors. There are a lot of great books that are not available through traditional publishing and I believe that these stories need to be brought to the attention of the reading public.
