A CHANGE OF HEART
by Sonali Dev
A CHANGE OF HEART is filled with all kinds of heart. This deeply emotional story begins with heartache, as Dr. Nikhil ‘Nic’ Joshi continues to struggle with the loss of his wife, Jen, who was murdered. Nic’s heartbreak is palpable throughout the beginning of the story, as only Sonali Dev can pour such feelings onto the page.
Jess Koirala will do anything in a heartbeat to protect her son, even if she risks hurting Nic’s heart to keep her precious child from harm. There are also heartless characters who pressure Jess to complete a mission, adding mystery and suspense throughout the story.
A Change of Heart is a story of second chances for Nic and Jess as they find ways to mend their broken hearts. It’s also heartwarming as we revisit Nic’s family, characters from Sonali Dev’s previous story, A BOLLYWOOD BRIDE. The unconditional love of Nic’s family is evident in every reunion and dialogue. They truly are a family with hearts of gold.
A Change of Heart was definitely a page turner for me. It was filled with many heart pounding moments; I was literally gripping my kindle on many occasions as I read along. This story isn’t for the faint of heart, since murder, rape, and organ trafficking are topics brought up throughout this riveting tale. Yet, as with all of Sonali Dev’s stories, love always prevails. The author has an artful way of expressing such heartfelt emotions in everything she writes, such as using “warmth kissed her cheeks and spread,” rather than the predictable “she blushed.”
I highly recommend A CHANGE OF HEART to anyone who’s in the mood for a mature, heart-pounding love story, with heart.
About Sonali Dev
Sonali Dev’s first literary work was a play about mistaken identities performed at her neighborhood Diwali extravaganza in Mumbai. She was eight years old. Despite this early success, Sonali spent the next few decades getting degrees in architecture and written communication, migrating across the globe, and starting a family while writing for magazines and websites. With the advent of her first gray hair her mad love for telling stories returned full force, and she now combines it with her insights into Indian culture to conjure up stories that make a mad tangle with her life as supermom, domestic goddess, and world traveler.
Sonali lives in the Chicago suburbs with her very patient and often amused husband and two teens who demand both patience and humor, and the world’s most perfect dog.
