Review by Christine:
A Change in Tide by Freya Barker is an emotional tale of overcoming obstacles to be able to find your happily ever after. When I heard that Freya was creating a hockey romance ~ newly retired NHL star ~ set in cottage country, I couldn’t get my hands on this story quick enough. A Change in Tide has layered characters who are mature in age and life experiences which help give depth to Freya’s storytelling. I was hooked from the start and didn’t want to put these characters down just itching to see how this stories pieces would fall into place. The chemistry and connection between the characters, Mia & Jared, not only heals each other but have the ability to sooth and calm each other as well. I also really enjoyed the brother/sister connection between Jared & Jordy and how Jared takes her in and changes his life to protect and take care of his family. The setting for this story was perfect. Canadian’s are huge hockey fans and yes we do treat our hockey stars like rock stars. I loved the local connection for me. Fingers crossed we’ll get a 2nd story with Jordy’s story ~ I really enjoyed her character and her quick wit. 5 Stars for A Change in Tide by Freya Barker
Freya Barker inspires with her stories about ‘real’ people, perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy. She is the author of the Cedar Tree Series and the Portland, ME, novels.
Freya is the recipient of the RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for best first book, “Slim To None,” and is a finalist for the 2016 Kindle Book Awards for “From Dust”. She currently has two complete series and three anthologies published, and is working on two new series; La Plata County FBI—ROCK POINT, and Northern Lights. She continues to spin story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!
