Blue Moon Bay: A Book Review

About The Book:

Every Once in a Blue Moon Your Heart Waits at a Crossroads

For Seattle architect Heather Hampton, a trip back to tiny Moses Lake, Texas, is hardly in the plan. Yet because a promotion hinges on the sale of the family farmland, Heather heads to the last place she ever wanted to go. She's determined to return home, signed contract in hand, the next day.

But the currents of Moses Lake take visitors on unexpected journeys. As Heather's stay lengthens, she discovers a family steeped in secrets and an unexpected connection to local banker Blaine Underhill, despite his opposition to Heather's project. With each new revelation and question, Heather can't help but wonder if the handsome banker--and the family she has come to know again--are crooks or crusaders. Somehow she must find out the truth before she loses everything she has worked for and everything she's found on the shores of Moses Lake.

My Review:

This is one of my favorite books from Lisa Wingate thus far. Wow, even though a piece of fiction, this book is a wonderful reminder that we can overcome our past, no matter what has happened. We just have to be willing to do so, and relinguish control over things we simply cannot control. Not an easy task for any of us, if we are being honest. I know it isn't for me.

The writing was superb, the characters are very much like any person you would meet in your own hometown or city, and a good-paced writing style. With a little bit of romance mixed with suspense, Blue Moon Bay will grab your attention right through, you will not want to put it down. A fantastic release from Wingate and can't wait to see what she comes up with next. 

BUY IT: You can purchase Blue Moon Bay at your favorite bookseller, from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
