A Change In Tide
May 1st 2017
What impact would it have when everything suddenly faded to black? For Mia, a crowded subway ride changes her entire life. Retreating to the wilderness helps her cope with a world that is suddenly too loud, too turbulent. Her existence safely contained to the small cottage on the lake, she is unprepared for the neighbor that moves across the bay. A career-ending injury has Jared permanently benched. His reputation as The Enforcer won’t survive the unanticipated responsibilities awaiting him. Away from the public eye, he adjust to his new reality, under the quiet observation of the intriguing hermit on the other side of the water.
There are certain author names that evoke certain reactions in me as a reader. Certain expectations that you connect automatically when your read them.
So when the name Freya Barker appeared on my kindle my mind directly connected it to intense storylines that I read from her in the past. And you can believe me when I tell you her newest book “A Change In Tide” picks up right where she left us when she finished her last series.
We find ourselves in a different setting with different characters yet we get told a story with an intensity that I truly love from this author. Her description of the setting really brings the reader into the story and the characters invited my to join them during the developing plot.
I felt like I was right beside Mia, the female lead when she faced her daily struggles and she made me want to hug her and tell her to hold on. The male lead was as confusing to me as he felt to Mia at first.
Jared is a strong minded guy with a big heart that is hidden under layers of old pain. Pain that is not obvious to outsiders and is therefore often misunderstood. I loved the developing relationship between the leads but as this is one Freya’s trademarks that was really no surprise to me.
The leads were remarkable, fragile yet strong. I enjoyed every minute of reading and I will pick up a book from this author at any time if the plot appeals to me.
