February 5, 2022


About the Book

Book: Flipping Hearts
Author: Chautona Havig
Narrator: Christa DelSorbo
Genre: Christian Women’s Fiction

When a hurricane rips through Hooper Island, a tidal wave of TV crews follows and upsets the locals.

Brooks Crawforth agreed to volunteer crews helping to clean up and repair things on the island, not a whole home and garden series on the total renovation of several houses and a bit of cleanup on the side. He’s furious, and the show host is spitting nails at the person who blew it in the first place.

His and his father’s jobs are in jeopardy, the islanders are about to kill him, and that crazy show host blames him for her assistant’s last-minute, “you’ve-got-to-sign-this-now-or-we-can’t-come” contract.

One more thing. Did she have to be so cute?

He’s got even more trouble, though. Islanders are starting to blame Mallory Barrows for the invasion. Not only that, there are rumors of dismantling the association and allowing tourism on the islands. How’s he supposed to fix this mess?

They can’t stand each other, but if they can manage to flip off the enemy switch and flip on some cooperation, maybe their hearts’ll get flipped, too.

This “enemies to romance” novel introduces the next island in the Independence Islands Series featuring five islands, six authors, and a boatload of happily-ever-afters.

My Thoughts

Back to Independence Islands except this time we are in the island of Hooper or as the locals call it Hopper. This is book one in the series and we are off to a good start! If you were thinking this is merely a romantic story boy are you in for a surprise! This also has quite the mystery and intrigue and it will keep you reading. I must also mention that the enemies to lovers trope is on point! Chautona wrote some lovely characters that kept your attention throughout the story.

One of the things I really enjoy about this author is the way she immerses the element of faith that makes you stop and think once you are done reading! If you enjoy the enemies to lovers trope, a bit of mystery and HGTV type shows then this is the book you should pick up. If you have read any of the other books some familiar faces and names will pop up on this one!

This was interesting to listen as I had read it previously but I rather enjoyed it even more listening to Christa tell the story. If you haven't listened to anything she has narrated give her a listen. She somehow makes the characters and the story come to life!

My Rating: 4 Stars/ Really Liked it

I received a copy of this book through Celebrate Lit. I was not required to post a positive review. All views expressed are only my honest opinion.

About the Author

Using story to connect readers with the Master Storyteller.

Chautona Havig lives in an oxymoron, escapes into imaginary worlds that look startlingly similar to ours, and writes the stories that emerge. An irrepressible optimist, Chautona sees everything through a kaleidoscope of It’s a Wonderful Life sprinkled with fairy tales. Find her at chautona.com and say howdy—if you can remember how to spell her name.


About the Narrator

Speaking Life into Story

Queen of the one-eyebrow quirk, Christa DelSorbo auditioned for the role of Tarzan’s mom and has the photos to prove she ended up as the only cast member in a literal cast. These days, they keep her stuck in a box with a ball on a stick and only feed her when she reads another chapter of another fabulous book. She loves every minute. Or so they tell her. *eyebrow slowly raises *
