The Changeup (Resort Romance Series, #6) by Mary Billiter – Review by Dori Cousley

The Changeup (Resort Romance #6)The Changeup by Mary Billiter
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Changeup by Mary Billiter is the sixth book in the Resort Romance Series. Though it is the sixth book, it can be read as a standalone. The Changeup is a whodunit mystery with romance thrown in for good measure. This is a story about a woman who trying to hide from her past and a baseball pitcher who is planning his future. Will there two worlds collide? Can it work out for the two of them?

The Changeup is another great book in the series, you will not be disappointed. I recommend reading the series because they are all so good. The twists and turns keeps you engaged, because you never know what will happen next. The characters are very believable and well developed. The secondary characters are just as good as the main ones. Looking forward to reading what comes next in the series.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Changeup (A Resort Romance Novel Book 6) by Mary Billiter is another ​great read. Mary has done a fantastic job with this story and I fell in love with the characters from the very first page of the first book. ​The story is told from a duel POV which gives the story much more depth and perspective. I found myself laughing at the antics of the characters as they try to get to the bottom of who did it. ​It is a murder mystery, romance story and this is one of my favourites in this series.

Rebel is in witness protection so the last thing she needs is a murder, but to find out who did it, she finds a lot more than she bargained for.

Ryan wants nothing more than to be blue blood and is training to be a deputy sheriff but what he stumbles across in an alley is more than he ever imagined and may just place the one thing he wants most in the world in jeopardy.

There are secrets and mysteries, lies and loss that will keep you glued to each and every page.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Changeup, by Mary Billiter, is a romantic suspense. This sixth novel fit perfectly within the A Resort Romance series. I adored the character names, they were fun to add in with the hilarious, suspenseful, intriguing and drama filled moments of the story. Rebel’s character was, by far, the best in this novel – something about her character shined thoroughly through. It could have been her witty nature or her personal set of morals/ethics, but it was unique. Then Ryan! Oh my goodness, the nickname he is graced with, its fabulous nickname! There are memorable characters in this book that just make it so good, entertaining and a must read! Not only do you get suspense within this story, the author gives you a bit more and delivers.

My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Changeup (Resort Romance #6) by Mary Billiter was a light hearted, mystery filled, cheesy romance, that had me hooked.

Not my first read by this author or in this series, as in I have read every book in this amazing series and when I seen this one I quickly snached it up. Every book reads as a standalone so this is a series you can read out of order. There isn’t much of overlapping in past characters, the only connection, really is the hotel chain. So no worries about spoilers.

I will say that the towards the end the mystery got a little slow and choppy. As something that was a driving plot point, and as something that added a nice intensity to the plot, as things seemed to be winding up, it dropped. There was a time skip and everything just concluded itself. I don’t know if it was done to keep the page count down, but I feel like I was jipped on something that could have been phenomenal.

Outside of that, I very much liked this story, it was a good addition to this growing series. It has all the elements I love from the other books, with a little, added slower burn romance, then I have seen so far. Our female MC isn’t your average woman, and that darkness in her past adds that extra layer, making the romance that much more special. Almost right away we get to see both our MC’s true colours, and that in itself adds a much needed layer to this already interconnecting series.

Overall this was a very enjoyable read, it hits lots of good points, solid writing, witty dialogue, great MC’s and supporting characters. I hope to see more from this series. So please take my super high recommendation and stamp of approval that you will get lost in this unique gritty love story that will leave you wanting more.

Happy Reading

The Changeup (A Resort Romance Novel Book 6) By Mary Billiter. While this is book 6 it can definitely be read as a standalone without any questions or confusion, but do yourself a favor and read the others because they are great also. I loved this story and how the author makes each one unique, this one had suspense which I love in stories. I love a book that has me trying to figure everything out. This story is in both main characters point of view and I’m a fan of that because it makes for a well rounded storyline. The characters are easy to connect with even when I wanted to smack them a bit. It’s well written and paced nicely although a bit rushed in the ending but still a great read. I’m giving this book a four star review and recommend it to everyone. Excited to see where the author takes readers next.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Here’s a cute story with a little mystery. Mary Billiter is the author of the Resort Romance novels. Each book is about a different set of characters. Each story is based in a hotel within the Point Resorts. While this is book 6 there is no need to read them in order. But you will definitely want to read all of the books.

Rebel Roberts is our leading lady and is trying to save herself with the help of the FBI. But trouble seems to follow Rebel no matter where she goes. Ryan McHenry is a soon to be sheriff’s deputy in Rebel’s new town. He can read Rebel’s lies across town, but when they discover a dead body together, he knows that there is more going on, not just with Rebel but with some of the locals in town too.

I liked reading about these two characters and their little adventure. Billiter has an easy style to read, which makes for a quick read. She writes about characters that are real but in such a way that the reader can escape into the characters world forgetting about their own problems.

Another Mary Billiter recommendation.

The Changeup is the sixth book in Mary Billiter’s Resort Romance’s series! I found the series when the fourth book came out and I have been a fan of her writing ever since. One could think that it is some flimsy easy reading when seeing that it is “Resort Romance” but it is far from that! Mary’s books make you feel, deep, and they make you think and I promise you that you do find yourself thinking of the stories now and then! AND you can read each story as a standalone so it means you have not missed the train!
The Changeup is the story of Rebel Roberts who is trying to keep a low profile as a hotel conference services manager/ being in Witness Protection, and Ryan McHenry who is a former college baseball pitcher/aspiring deputy sheriff. Add to this a dead body and what do you have at your hands? Chemistry that leaves you blushing and reaching for a fan and … suspense/a mess of gargantuan proportions … sort of … They will take you on a ride that you keep wishing that ends in Happily Ever After AND let’s not forget about all those great supporting characters, it is another bunch of great cast and it is something that I have enjoyed with each of the book in the series!

The Changeup (A Resort Romance Novel Book 6)
By: Mary Billiter
5 out of 5 stars

The story The Changeup (A Resort Romance Novel Book 6) by Mary Billiter is an action/mystery/romance book. It is a story that hooked me in from the very first chapter and I didn’t want to put it down until I had finished the last page. It has questions that are raised and need to be investigated/answered. I found myself trying to put together the clues like a puzzle. I loved reading about the characters of Rebel Roberts and Ryan McHenry. Rebel is a woman who is part of the Witness Protection Program. She has to be kept safe so that she can testify. She finds herself with a job at the Point Resort in Long Beach, CA. She also finds herself very attracted to Ryan. Ryan is a man that wants to become a deputy sheriff. There were officers in his family and that is what his goal is. He soon finds himself in the middle of an investigation that starts when he and Rebel find a dead body. They begin a search for the truth behind the death. Both Rebel and Ryan have an attraction to each other. While Rebel knows it is not a good idea for her to become involved with Ryan her heart is telling her otherwise. There is energy when they kiss and a passion for each other. Will these two find out the reason behind the body that they find? Will they give into their emotions and feelings for each other? Will they get a chance at happiness? What would happen if Ryan finds out the secret that Rebel protects? Read this book to find out. I enjoyed reading about how Ryan and Rebel banter back and forth with each other. I also enjoyed reading about the other characters that they interact with and the part that each one plays in the story. This is a wonderfully written book that I would highly recommend reading. This is a series that I have loved since I read the first book and I also suggest reading the first five stories.

The Changeup is the sixth book in the Resort Romance Series by Mary Billiter. It is a bit of a whodunnit mystery with romance, suspense, and intrigue. It can be read as a standalone, but the rest of the series is also really great, so you would be missing out by not reading them all and getting the full experience.
I have been really enjoying this series, so I was really pleased to get my hands on this book and see what Ms. Billiter had in store for us this time. Once again this Ms. Billiter gives us something a bit different from the other books in the series. This book definitely has its own identity, flavour and tone- but still blends in well as part of the overall series. I liked that this was a mystery with a whodunnit feel to it, and the mystery itself was quite intriguing.
Rebel Roberts is the conference services manager at the Point Resort in Long Beach. But, her whole life is a cover- as she’s been placed in Witness protection by the FBI. Rebel’s meant to be keeping a low profile, so the last thing she needs is to stumble across a dead body. She can’t bring that kind of scrutiny on herself, because that may blow her cover completely. What will she do?
Ryan McHenry is known around these parts as McCutie. The former college ball player is now training to be a deputy sheriff, while working part-time delivering office supplies. Chance has him on the scene as they stumble across the body. Contrary to his better judgement he finds himself agreeing to help her. What ensues makes for some very entertaining reading as we follow along on this investigation and try to get to the bottom of it all.
This book was a great read, but it did feel a little rushed at times, especially towards the end.
The characters are great, especially Ryan (and his father). I did like Rebel, but she really frustrated me at times with her choices.
The story is told from a duel POV which gives us a really balanced perspective.
I am looking forward to Ms. Billiter’s next book!

Thank you, Ms. Billiter!
