Book Review: A Change of Heart by Hannah Ellis *AD gifted

I was provided with a free ebook of A Change of Heart by Hannah Ellis ahead of the blog tour.

Take me away to a coastal cottage in the Isles of Scilly, please. A Change of Heart is the perfect summer escape.

A Change of Heart by Hannah Ellis book cover

She was never meant to fall for her best friend’s brother... 

Seren has had a soft spot for her best friend’s brother for as long as she can remember. But when she starts to see Kit as more than just a friend, she knows she’s on dangerous ground.

Avoiding him is probably her best course of action, but that’s easier said than done when you live on a tiny island.

When Kit declares he’s in love with her, she’s forced to deny her feelings. There’s too much to lose for her to do anything else.

If only her heart would get the message that she and Kit aren’t meant to be.

As the tension between them builds it becomes more and more difficult for Seren to keep her feelings hidden.

Can she find the courage to risk everything for love? And will Kit still be waiting for her when she does?

5 Word Review: Family, love, friendship, business, trust.

A Change of Heart is the second Isles of Scilly book, but it can absolutely be read as a standalone. That's how I read it, and I don't feel like I lost out on anything. Although seeing Kiera and Noah has me itching to pick up the first book The Weekend Getaway. I flew through this book in a single afternoon, I didn't want to put it down.

I loved Seren, her openness and generous heart. She's the kind of person you want to be friends with, she's not had the happiest past but she's very much found a family.

Kit is like the perfect book boyfriend. Can I have one? Right from the moment we met him I was as smitten as Seren pretended she wasn't.

I love a friends-to-lovers romance, and all of the drama and hesitation that comes from it, the complicated feelings and the deep love that stems from years of mutual care and affection.

Age gap romances can sometimes give me the ick, but in A Change of Heart it really worked - Seren and Kit just belong together, OK? An the easy way they work together (despite the small dramas and reluctance) made this a very easy read. This book is perfect for the beach.

This book really is the perfect summery romance, and the heart-warming story is almost impossible to put down. I will definitely be reading more by Hannah Ellis. This book will leave you with the biggest ever smile on your face.

Hannah spent many years working in childcare before deciding she'd like to write books. When she's not busy writing she likes to read, drink tea and eat chocolate. She also enjoys yoga and jogging.


  1. I haven't heard of this book before, but it sounds really cute. I'm not one for romance novels, but every once in a while, it's a perfect summer book.

  2. i really enjoy the "wanting to date my bestfriend's brother" trope for some reason. this sounds like a great read.

  3. Thank you so much for your gorgeous review!
