Seasons for Change by K.C. Richardson is a contemporary romance, and also what I might call a summer romance. It’s the type of story I might pick to read on a vacation trip or a long weekend of relaxing. Even the setting adds to the vacation feel of this novel. The setting is actually one of my favorite parts of this story. The book takes place mostly in the Lake Tahoe area. The two main characters meet here and enjoy the amenities of the area as they become friends and gradually lovers. The author did a good job describing the region and the activities available to the characters.
Shawn, one of the main characters lives in the area and owns a diner. Morgan visits the town with friends and later comes back to visit on her own. This is when the two begin to notice each other. They are attracted to each other, but both suck at communicating, which leads to misunderstandings and even a possible breakup.
I will admit I had a few problems with the characters, especially Morgan. It was kind of hard to connect with her because she seemed kind of superficial and judgmental at times. I understand some of that was done to help create conflict in the tale. It just made it hard to like her sometimes.
The story is rather predictable. I often knew what was going to happen before I read it. That isn’t necessarily a bad thing. This is a pure romance, and sometimes people just want stories like this. It is the kind of story I might read at the beach or at camp. That’s why I called it a summer or vacation romance.
I’m giving this book a 3.5 star rating. I did enjoy the story and will look for more from this author.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
