Review of "Change of Heart" by Courtney Walsh

Evelyn and Christopher Brandt met in high school and eventually married. 10 years later, Christopher is arrested for embezzlement and Evelyn has no idea what is going on. As his crimes begin to be investigated it is soon discovered that he has been cheating on her for years, perhaps for their entire relationship. She starts to question if anything she believes is really true.

Trevor Whitney was also one of their high school classmates who has been in love with Evelyn for years. He is carrying tremendous guilt for even feeling this way, but it's compounded by the fact he knew Christopher was cheating and he remained silent.

I have such mixed emotions about this book. It's a standalone novel (but companion to her book Paper Hearts). Unfortunately some of the characterization simply did not ring true for me - but to be fair, I have never been married to a total narcissist or gotten a divorce. Her Senator husband was just an oddly developed character to me; I can usually find a shred of decency in a character, but he is completely awful - and so, it was difficult to process that she NEVER NOTICED ANYTHING.

Although I can't give this book rave reviews, I will have to suggest that you read it and decide for yourself. I was given a copy of this book by Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
