Stand alone
Author: Freya Barker
Genre: Contemporary Romance

Once a man who lived by the letter of the law.
Newt Tobias will do anything for his little girl. Even take early retirement, sell his city home, and move to cottage country, hoping that the simpler life will provide a better balance for his troubled teenage daughter.
Yet, not long after they’ve settled, he finds himself toe-to-toe with a stubborn, fiery tempered woman with pretty brown eyes.
Once a recluse preferring to live alone.
Working with troubled adolescents, Frederique Marchand doesn’t suffer fools and won’t put up with bullies. Especially handsome strangers like Newt who think they can run roughshod over her. She loves her work, but on her own time she much prefers the company of her menagerie of animals.
But with the welfare of a teenager at stake, she must put aside rocky first impressions and work with a man who needs her as much as she’ll come to need him.


Foxylutely Book Reviews – “This was another winning storyline from Freya Barker and one I did not want to end.”

Mindy Lou’s Book Review – “What an incredible and emotional story about a single father struggling to help his troubled, teenage daughter.”

The Laundry Librarian – “A Change of Pace is the perfect down home, all the feels, REAL romance read. It was refreshing, heartbreaking and beautiful.”


Freya Barker inspires with her stories about ‘real’ people, perhaps less than perfect, each struggling to find their own slice of happy. She is the author of the Cedar Tree Series and the Portland, ME, novels.
Freya is the recipient of the RomCon “Reader’s Choice” Award for best first book, “Slim To None,” and is a finalist for the 2016 Kindle Book Awards for “From Dust”. She currently has two complete series and three anthologies published, and is working on two new series; La Plata County FBI—ROCK POINT, and Northern Lights. She continues to spin story after story with an endless supply of bruised and dented characters, vying for attention!

5 STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review

I fell in love with Freya Barker when I read A Change in Tide. I formed an unhealthy love for her when I found A Change of View. Now, well, now I’m not sure what I feel for Freya, but she’s is amazing. I absolutely love A Change of Pace. I loved this story from start to finish. Newt was everything I wanted in a hero. As a former police office, Newt set all that aside to take care of his daughter. Oh, sweet, sweet Millie. This amazing girl was everything I never knew I wanted in a teenager and more. I loved her to pieces. She’s was smart and closed off, but I believed there was so much more to her.

Freddy was just wanted I hoped she would be. I loved her love of animals and I love how she combined that love to help people. I love how hard she fought to not fall for Newt, but it was bound to happen. It was to easy for them to not fall for each other. Freddy was there for Millie when Newt couldn’t get her to open up. There was so much about this woman that made me fall in love with her. And so much that broke my heart.

Freya Barker is an amazing author. I literally fall in love with all her characters. I love how her words suck me in and don’t let go. I find myself thinking about her stories long after they end. I put my finger on what it is about Freya and her stories, but I feel the passion behind her words. I will read any book Freya puts her name on. I hope you will check out A Change of Pace. I hope you love it as much as I do.
