you inside the pages of her books You relate to her characters immediately and want to crawl into bed with her leading men A Change of View is no different If you like well thought out stories with vivid characters you can relate to, then pick up this book or any other of Ms Barker s heartwarming tales You WON T be disappointed P.S Roar is mine I m not even sure where to start with this review I have read everything that Ms Barker has written and have loved each and every story Somehow this book hit closer to home for me, maybe it s the fact that both Roar and Leelo were only children and their fathers taught them the love of the outdoors One of my favorite places on earth is the family cabin in northwest Ontario Maybe it s the fact that like Leelo, in the past I ve never felt I measured up to everyone s ideal of who I should be, I m not even sure where to start with this review I have read everything that Ms Barker has written and have loved each and every story Somehow this

personified in Roar, right down to the beard and devilish eyes All I know is I think this is my favorite book so far Leelo is trying to rebuild not only her life, but also her view of herself, after spending her life trying to please her mother, her husband, and her children After a family shattering divorce, and an unexpected inheritance, she picks up herself up and moves north to refurbish her uncle s motel However, someone seems to be sabotaging her new beginning, which she fights tooth and nail In the process she meets the wonderful characters only Ms Barker can create Riordan Doyle Roar , owner of Jackson s Point is Leelo s nearest neighbor and her savior in many ways His mother, Charlotte is a take no prisoners octogenarian and when I get old I want to be her What follows after the pair meets is a smoldering story of self discovery, intrigue, and love Throughout the story Ms Barker weaves her love of her native Ontario along with a beautiful love story While Roar is a man of few words, his thoughts and emotions run much deeper than he shows When he shares his thoughts with those he loves, the scenes are beautiful and heartfelt If you love a book about a strong woman overcoming the odds and the reinventing herself and a man opening his heart to the possibilities of love and a different future, grab this book you won t be sorry Another great book in this series

fishing lodge, he s Leelo s nearest neighbour and he can t believe when he sees this blue haired tattooed townie clinging to the roof of the old inn in a storm Furious at her stupidity he rushes in, berates her and gets a mouthful of abuse in return Despite the antagonism Roar is enough of good neighbour all round nice guy that he actually turns up the next day to help Leelo fix her roof, then when other things go wrong he s always around to fix them.This is somewhat different to the other books I have read by Freya Barker, the previous books have featured single divorced women in their 40s but always childless I have to say, although I could read Freya Barker s novels all day every day, it was nice for her heroine to be a mother, especially of adult children.If you ve ever wanted to rebel one last time before it s too late, or at least before you decide to wear purple, if you ve ever wondered if you were invisible after 40, if you ve ever wanted to tell other people what you really think then this is the heroine for you I have the utmost admiration for Leelo s DIY skills as she rips up carpets and lugs lumber around I loved Roar, this big gruff man with a heart of gold who loves his mum and his dog.I am the world s least handy person and yet I soooo wanted to be Leelo.Another brilliant novel by someone who is fast becoming one of my favourite authors Another great read by Freya Barker It did take a bit to warm up to the heroine, Leelo She had been walked all over during her first marriage so I m sure we were just seeing her deciding to not take crap any At times it felt like she was overreacting I can also appreciate that the author probably did this on purpose She s really good about creating flawed characters that you can relate to.I loved the hero, Roar He s described as a hot lumberjack that s moody and growly My cup of tea T Another great read by Freya Barker It did take a bit to warm up to the heroine, Leelo She had been walked all over

it off right away but Roar was just such a good guy that came to Leelo s rescue no matter how stubborn she was I loved him It doesn t take long forto develop between these two I really like how we got quality time with them together Leelo is a divorced mom with grown kids who do play a part in their story There is a small bit of other woman drama and a jerk of an ex husband Neither thing had me loving this story any less 2nd book in the series Northern Lights Another great story from a master Above the usual plot line this story kept me reading almost all night I appreciated how the family love grew in this story Well done.
