    Before you read further, please note that I was contacted by the author and asked if I would read the book and post an "honest" review. I have written to the author and suggested some things that I hope will make future work even better. Here is my review:Moving On is a good work by a new, young author who is striving to Move On herself in her skills and creative writing world. The book could use a good editor to take care of some grammar issues and also some wrong wording that can easily be corrected. That is always something that a new indy author has trouble finding, a good editor.The story is part Romeo and Juliet and part Pride and Prejudice. I can see parts of each story within Moving On. Kate Mitchell is a young woman who becomes associated with a Grandfatherly man who has volunteered at the Nursing Home unit where her grandmother is. This man provides loving care for her grandmother and then befriends her as well.Their relationship becomes one of a grandfather/granddaughter even though they aren't blood relatives (I can relate personally as I have several relationships like this). When Grandfather Hayes dies he asks Kate to do something for him, he asks her to do her best to help his grandson from whom he is estranged. Kate promises. This leads to the most unusual year of her life.Grandfather Hayes wants Kate and his grandson, Tyler Hayes, to live in the same "Family Home" for the next year. They will have two chaperon's, the older caring Marianne who has taken care of Tyler as well as Mr. Sawyer the elderly lawyer of the family.The story brings a disgruntled, angry, bitter young many home to face some issues. It brings a young Christian woman who loves life and cared deeply for Grandfather Hayes to a place where she is going to have to face some of her past issues as well.Both young people lost their parents in ghastly ways at early ages. They have to face those demons and deal with them. They also have to face the reality of learning to care and trust each other.The story is a bit simple. The plot is predictable. The dialogue somewhat simplistic. There are many things I might have developed differently, such as their wealth, their friends, Kate's Christian walk. etc.But all in all this was a fun read. I must admit that I have twenty other books I am suppose to read and review. I told Trisha Grace I would read three chapters and give her some thoughts. Instead I got hooked and read the whole thing.Simple, YES, Predictable, YES, Enjoyable, YES!Why only four stars? Because she needs an editor. She needs some development in her writing. If I give her four stars she has nothing to work towards.Thank you Trisha for asking me to read.

    I started reading the book and was immediately drawn into the quirky conditions of the will that Mr. Hayes had drawn up for Tyler and Kate. I knew then on that this book was going to be about how 2 individuals change when circumstances bring them together.I loved Kate as a character. I felt she had a lot of depth. I read that the book had been redone as a Christian Fiction and you could make that out because Kate was so strong in her faith. Another character who I really loved was Evelyn, Kate's best friend and business partner. I love ladies who are strong and do not take any form of trash dished out to them.I felt this story had a lot of elements going on. Tyler and Kate feel the early attraction. It is visible to anyone who reads, that Tyler has gone so far as to change himself for Kate. And this change is good change.I enjoyed the back characters who are Tyler's friends. They make interesting reading. It also adds depth to the book and doesn't solely focus on the lead pair.The ending was an absolute thriller!!! I was hooked to this book and I couldn't move, I had to finish reading it!A book which I thought would be typical but it wasn't! A Good Read

    Title: Moving OnAuthor: Trisha GracePublisher: T.G.Series: Ghost of the Past #1Reviewed By: Arlena DeanRating: 5Review:"Moving On" by Trisha GraceWhat was this novel about?"For twenty years, Tyler Hayes had been ripped from his childhood home. After the horrific accident that took away his parents’ life, Tyler’s grandfather removed him from the mansion and sent him away.Now, after twenty years, his grandfather had passed away and he could finally go home. However, even in his death, Tyler’s grandfather had betrayed him once again, leaving the mansion to a woman he had never met.Even though Kate Mitchell had never met Tyler, she knew all about the accident that changed the Hayes’s family. Unbeknownst to her, was how she was going to end up being caught in the middle of a long estranged relationship between two different generations.Two complete different personalities would have to learn to get along and play nice in order to survive a will that would change their lives."What I liked from this read.....First up front, I thought "Moving On" story line was one good novel that showed one overcoming one's past and moving as with Tyler and Kate's life. This author really worked with all of the interesting secondary characters that played a well developed, colorful (Evelyn, Joanne and Marianne) part in this good flow of the story. This author held nothing back showing the struggles and growth of these two main characters showing all of the events and emotions that will come up throughout the read. What I also liked and my overall impression.....I will say this was definitely a suspenseful read that you will have to keep up with but after saying that .... I was able to follow the thoughts of this author on this interesting journey as you will see if "two complete different personalities learn to get along and play nice in order to survive a will that would change their lives." And with saying that....I really enjoyed this incredible told story as I listened from my Kindle. I would recommend you pick up "Moving On" to see how this author brings it all out to the reader. It will be one interesting, powerful and entertaining ride as you will see how this author uses her imagination to give the reader a good story.

    REVIEWTyler Hayes had been taken away from a home that had been his since childhood. Over twenty years ago.When his parents died from a terrible accident, Tyler's grandfather sent him away from the mansion.Twenty years later, Tyler's grandfather died and Tyler could finally go back home. But once again, Tyler was betrayed by his family. Death didn't even stop the cruelty of the grandfather. Tyler wasn't the heir to the mansion. A mysterious woman was. Kate Mitchell. She didn't know Tyler, but she did know of the changes in the Haye's family.Here we have two generations that have long been apart from each other. Will Kate bring them back together? Different people with different ideas, personalities and solutions to the problems. Will they learn to try to get along or will the feud continue?The author wrote a good book that shows the past can be overcome and you can move on. The author wrote the characters with such colorful descriptions that helped to make the story flow well. This was a lay it all out on the table book. The author held nothing back. The author put a fair amount of suspense in the novel which kept the reader turning the pages to find out what will happen next. A well written, suspenseful, page turner. The author put in one huge lesson, You can let go of the past and move on. You can reunite after 20 years. It all depends on the person and how much he or she wants to make amends and move on.I was given a complimentary copy of MOVING ON from the author, Trisha Grace for my view of the book. No other compensation took place.

    This book brings to us a christian based romances, with a couple of good splashes of suspense. Which shows that even though the author reworked the book she still followed the same story which is good. I loved the characters and how the story flowed. You can see how the main characters Tyler and Kate grow throughout the book to become the people that they need to be to be happy in life. It's nice to see that in a book, the author shows you the struggles. The side characters make this book what it is if you didn't have them it wouldn't be the book that it was. They help with what the main characters are doing. They help them when they can't help themselves. My full review is available at http://allnightbooks.com/?p=329

    I loved this book. I have never heard of sharing a home with someone for a year per request of a loved ones will, but loved the idea of it in this book. The story line is wonderful and the characters are fun & witty. Well, with the exception of Joanne, as I just didn't seem to like her at all. I found her to be a clingy whiny ex girlfriend. One you just want to slap and tell her to shut the heck up and move on with her life already, lol.The bond between Tyler and Kate is electrifying. I was so happy for them when they finally became one.The story has leads to other avenues or other goings on between characters which leads you to wanting to read more. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone.

    Review haiku:Must share house to keepInteresting ideaJunior high writingI should have read the other reviews before downloading this book, not just looked at all the stars. The book sounds like it was written by a middle schooler, and so do many of the 5-star reviews. I really wanted to like this book, because the premise is interesting, but I just can't recommend it.

    This author should never ever dare show up at my house. The only thing that would happen would be screaming "Why, why did you leave me hanging?" It was an amazing book it had me pacing in all the right paces and wishing I were Kate in most parts. AMAMZING BOOK!!

    Wait. That was the end?!There's still so much left undone! Like the fire? The person threatening her? No! You don't end books like that.Other than that, it was pretty good! I really liked that the person going after Kate was left unknown and wasn't obvious. I mean, they left us without knowing at the end, and I have no guesses! Grr. Good thing there are more books, I'm just not sure I'll be able to get a hold of them...4 stars.

    I was sent this book from the author for an honest review. As we all know I'm not one to sugar coat my reviews, I'm happy to announce, I LOVED THIS BOOK! I read over some reviews on amazon before I started the book, and after reading it I'm surprised at some of the lower ranking ones. Every reader is entitled to their own opinion, everyone knows I am, but I am truly surprised that there are 1 and 2 star reviews! I'm not sure if it was before the "remake" of Moving On, but to each their own I supposed. Now with that said,.. BE STILL MY HEART!!I love books where both characters are damaged in some way and come together. Kate's parents were killed in, what she was told, a car crash, but later finds out it was murder. Tyler's parents died in a fire while he hid under a table. Both deal with their trauma in different ways. Tyler shuts people out while Kate tries to fix everyone, and take care of them. When Tyler meets Kate he sees something in her that makes him want to change. That makes him want to let her in, and he does. It starts small, a smile here, touch there, letting her touch his things. until it builds up and he is in love with her. True after only 3 months of knowing each other I'm questioning this love thing, but I guess its better than the instalove we see with a lot of other authors. I hate instalove. I found myself liking all the characters, minus Joanna. I mean come on who could like her. And at times I found myself not really liking Kate. She has no backbone. None. I hate that in female characters. I believe we should all be strong and stand up for ourselves, and not let someone fight our battles for us. I wish we got that Kate. But we needed the no backbone Kate to complete the Kate/Tyler love fest. Since Tyler protects the both of way WAY to much. I loved the story plot, I kind of wished the author would have told us who murdered Kate's family, and who was behind the letters and the fire. To me that is a vital piece of the story that we are missing. Maybe in the next books? I'm not sure if it is ever told, but it should be. We are built up from the beginning about their murder and then it just drops? NO!! Give us the details! And as for Kate's sister? For a lawyer in training, she is pretty stupid. Sure I am 99% positive I would want answers just as much as her, but come one. There are better ways to get them, and not put your and your sisters lives in danger in the process! I'm literally sitting here like WTF!But all in all its a great book that should be read at some point in your busy schedule! So thank you Mrs. Trisha for honoring me with reviewing your book! Now for the next in the series!

    It's been a long time since I last read a Christian Romance book and I always love the glorious feeling I get whenever I finish reading one. Moving On is a great love story of two strangers who were forced to stay together in a mansion because of a recently deceased (Mr. Hayes) last will & testament. Tyler was forced out of the mansion at a young age when he was abandoned by his grandfather after his parents died in a house fire. He never got the chance to be with him in 20 years, until Mr. Hayes died and he was contacted by Kate Mitchell, his grandpa's confidant. Tyler was aloof, disgruntled and angry at people. Kate on the other hand, is an independent woman who wasn't used to being taken care of. She's got a positive outlook in life, even though she and her sister Lydia lost their parents in a tragic way. I loved the flow of the story and the characterization of Kate & Tyler. They seem to complement each other and their chemistry brought about the good changes in themselves. Tyler has learned to trust and smile and be comfortable with other people around him while Kate has finally allowed someone else to protect her and take care of her. The will, which advised Kate to give up Mr. Hayes' mansion, with the condition that she has to stay with Tyler in the house for a year brought them together. At first, I thought they would be having a tumultuous relationship throughout the year, especially with Joanne around. Joanne is a spoiled brat, thinks so highly of herself and told everyone that she's Tyler's fiancee, although they were never a couple to begin with. I also liked Kate's main gal pal, Evelyn, who has issues with relationships; and Tyler's friends, Ryan, Joseph & Dan - they were all considerate of Tyler's feelings and had good head on their shoulders. They're the kind of people I would love myself to surround with. I loved all the romantic parts of the book, as well as the passages and scriptures shared by Kate and her story of the puddle and swerving car. There were also other parts that brought me to tears, actually, like the painting in the shed and the fire. I wish I could tell more, but I don't want to reveal the whole story. Although the ending was sweet and giddy, it also left me hanging. I wish to know more about the whole gang, I wish to know more about the cold cases and I wish to know more about the future waiting for them. Overall, this was an amazing read and really made my heart melt. ** Note: I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange of an honest review. **

    If I'm totally honest, I was a little skeptical about reading Moving On by Trisha Grace, initially. It was sent to me as a review book and promoted as "Christian Fiction". I would say, right off the bat, that although it is clear there is an underlying element of faith, within two of the characters in the book, it is not a book that pumps the "Christian" message down your throat. It is plain and simply a romance/adventure and a very good one at that. The premise was interesting. An old man lies dying and regretting some of the decisions he made in his life, especially with respect to how he treated his young grandson, following the death of the boy's parents. The grandson, now a grown-up and successful businessman has always resented his grandfather deserting him, just when he needed him the most.Enter the beautiful and successful Kate who develops a friendship with the old man in his last years and listens to the regrets and sadness of the grandfather's life. It is the very odd terms of the will that set this story in motion and make for some fascinating arcs and encounters.I enjoyed Trisha Grace's writing style and her character development. All the characters, being as young as they were and all successful and it seems fairly wealthy, did require a tiny bit of suspension of belief, although perhaps that's just the way things happen in moneyed circles. I did enjoy the contrast between the two sisters, Kate and Lydia as well as the marked contrast between the two best friends and "soul sisters" Kate and Evelyn. If ever there was confirmation of the premise that opposites attract, we saw that in Kate and Evelyn. The story was interesting, exciting at points, and of course, marvelously romantic. I can honestly say I really enjoyed Moving On and can highly recommend it to any lovers of romance with a twist or romance with a mission. I note with interest that Trisha Grace has continued the series with the focus on other characters in this first book. I think the second book about Evelyn and Dan (presumably) will be fascinating. There are many untold secrets that arise in Book One that I'm confident Trisha Grace will uncover for us in Book Two. An excellent story and well done to the author. A very solid four star review from this reader. Bring on Book Two please. I'm ready to read it.

    The only thing Tyler Hayes wanted from his estranged grandfather’s estate was the mansion he should have grown up in.Kate Mitchell wanted nothing from the estate of the old man she befriended in her father’s senior’s home, but she received his mansion.Kate had heard all about the accident and what it had done to the Hayes family, but Tony had never returned home so he had never met Kate. The only way to return the mansion to Tyler was going to take a little ingenuity and a lot of perseverance.Moving On was a very unique romance novel. I really enjoyed the premise of the story. I don’t know that I would have had the courage to do what Kate did no matter how much I wanted to give the mansion to Tyler.I enjoyed the pace of the novel. It was set at a speed that made for a very pleasant speed. While Kate was helping Tyler resolve his issues with regard to his resentment to his grandfather, unresolved issues from her past raised their heads to threaten her too. I think the author did a remarkable job of showing that issues of the past can be overcome and an individual can forgive and move on. These twists and turns in the plot made the story quite interesting and added some elements of suspense.One thing that confused me however was that the William Haye’s will stated that there were to be guests had to be gone by 8 p.m. However it seemed that Tyler’s friends practically lived there with him.I particularly enjoyed seeing the changes to Tyler’s personality as he grew and changed through the book. I thought the characters seemed realistic. Their conversations sounded just like people in their twenties.Most of the characters in the book were fairly personable except for Joanna who seemed somewhat delusional. I admired Kate and Evelyn who were willing to try to help her.If you enjoy clean romance and suspense novels, I would recommend Moving On to you. I rated it 5 stars out of 5.Thank you to the author for providing a copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion is not required. All thought are my own.To see my complete review visit Shelf Full of Books http://kathrynsshelffullofbooks.blogs...

    Normally I would only only give a book with editing this poor one star, if I finished it at all. But I did finish it, and I did like the characters, so I bumped it to two. I was expecting cute, fun chick lit, so my suspension of disbelief covered the fact that the guy would be crazy rich at 28. It was inherited wealth after all. But Katie had a working class background and Eve had a rough upbringing and they're also rich at 25? And of course all the friends are rich . . . OK, well it's chick lit right?And Joanne/Anne was just an over the top character. She needed to be majorly toned down to reform at the end of the book. Then there was the moment when Katie is driving with sprained ankle and remarks that it's difficult to move her (good) foot from one pedal to the other . . . Am I the only one whose driver's ed teacher taught to ALWAYS use only foot, since pushing both the gas and the brake at the same time could be REALLY bad??? I had to put the book down for awhile after that. What this book really needs is an editor. Not sure if the issues are the result of some sort of speech to text program or English as a second language or what, but it's really bad. The book is supposed to be set in the US (somewhere between North Carolina and North Dakota as far as I can tell) but "torchlight" is used for flashlight.Also, on a theological note, this is billed as Christian fiction, and Katie is a Christian. But the "ghosts" are presented as Ty's dead parents, now angels. People becoming angels after they die is a common enough myth, but it's not based on the Bible.Despite all the negative points, there was something about the story that I liked, I'd love to read it again, cleaned up for publication. If I'd been reading a paper copy I would have been tempted to get out my red pen.

    Author Trisha Grace introduces readers to a delicious cast of characters, each fighting their own demons, in the book Moving On. Kate Mitchell had little idea that befriending William Hayes could leave such an impact on her life. The man who she first thought was a patient at an elder home actually turns out to be a very wealthy man who is tormented with demons from the past. His long estrangement from his grandson Tyler consumes his thoughts during his last days on earth and a deathbed promise solicited from Kate may be the tool to finally heal the 20-year wound between grandfather and grandson.Unknowingly, while Kate works to help Tyler heal and to reclaim his childhood home, ghosts from her past come to life and threaten her very existence. Other characters in the book are cleverly intertwined in the lives of Kate and Tyler either as helpers or hindrances. I totally adored this book and give it 5 out of 5 stars. This book will hold the interest of readers of various genres including romance, mystery, suspense, and religion. I am excited that there are more books in this series and cannot wait to read book two!

    Moving On: A Perfect Story for a Winter NightTrisha Grace does it again, with a strong plot, full of suspense and romance. This one is perfect, a seemingly haunted old mansion, ghosts playing the piano, or dancing on the lawn, and even rescuing the heroine from a fire, and a dashing rich hero to come to her rescue. And in the midst of it all, there is a strong teaching from God about his protection at all times. Again, the plot and characters are strong and well presented. But also again, the English is a bit awkward, as if it is not the first language of the author. I do not know if this is due to autocomplete, editing, or translation, but it does detract from the writing and from the full enjoyment of the book. However, if the language is not a problem, and you like suspense and romance, this book just might be the perfect tale for a winter night.

    This book reads like a poorly written first draft. I agree with others here that the premise sounded very intriguing, but I keep getting derailed by continuity errors and badly managed dialogue. Perhaps with proper editing this could have been saved, but most likely not. The show stopper for me was when they were at the ranch and Ty asked the ranch hand to make the horse sit so she could get on, and then again when they were finished riding. Perhaps the author was confusing horses with camels, because the average dude ranch horse just doesn't do that. Write what you know about, or at least research!I can't recommend this book even as a freebie, unless you are extremely tolerant of poor writing.

    Although the author contacted me about reading the book, the book description intrigued me enough to want to read it. Once I began reading, the characters, their lives and how they all intertwined, kept me reading. I enjoyed reading it, and when I got to busy to read, the characters and what was happening was always in the back of my mind. I'm not to sure about the ending. It left me with unanswered questions. I will definitely read the next book hoping to find those answers. I LOVED IT and recommended it to my sister.... Thank you.

    I got this book free for an honest review and wow! Do not believe all the reviews you read. This book was inspirational and full of passion, romance, love, friendships and family. I started this book early afternoon and finished early evening. It was so captivating I couldn't put it down. A touching story of how 2 lost souls come together. Yes some grammar issues but I find those in print books as well. No big deal. I can't wait for book 2

    I would have given this four stars, but a few of the characters irritated me and seemed to "limited" in their scope - feeling just one-dimensional - that I was frustrated when they came on the scene. However, I liked it enough that I would like to read the other books in the series. I did enjoy the morals of the book and the fact that it was a clean romance/mystery. I wish the mystery had been solved at the end, though.
