When Calls the Heart- Change of Heart DVD Review


Finally, Jack and Elizabeth have a date.  Elizabeth is walking on Cloud Nine because the handsome Mountie has taken her on an exclusive date at Abigail's CafĂ©.  To add to Elizabeth's happiness, her sister Julie comes to town for a visit escorted by another Mountie who happens to be a replacement for Jack!  Jack has forgotten that he sent in a notice when he first came to Coal Valley to be released from his post, but in the meantime, he had fallen in love with the sweet school teacher.  Jack is torn and is nervous about telling Elizabeth.  Julie is excited to visit the small country town and as she explores, she meets a strange young man in a cabin in the woods.  She immediately becomes attached to this man and later finds out he is part of a gang of robbers that are on WANTED posters.  Both sisters are completely lost in their desires for the men who come into their lives.  Elizabeth is willing to let Jack go and chase his new assignment, but is aching to be with him again.  When a confrontation between the Mounties and the gang occur, Elizabeth's life is at stake.  Jack becomes her hero, but will he still stay or will he go?
I was so excited to receive the next video of this exciting and romantic series from When Calls the Heart.  Jack has been watching, protecting and pursuing Elizabeth, but has finally made a proper move.  I love how these two interact.  Elizabeth keeps her distance, but I can tell she wants to fall for this guy.  This story had some great action and a mystery that still remains to be solved involving Abigail and the owner of the mine.  I am very interested to see how Jack and Elizabeth's relationship progresses and what will become of the information Abigail has found regarding the mine disaster. 

*I was given a complimentary copy of this DVD for my review.  All opinions are my own.*
