lol! Isn’t it neat?! I whipped it up for my daughter last night to keep her guitar
crapstuff in! She chose the colours because they match perfectly with her bedding… bright & fun!! The finished size to hold ‘stuff’ is about 7×7″…
Ok, I’m sorry for the double post, but can you see all the photos on this post?!
The first book I’ll be reviewing to month is “Blue Moon Bay” by Lisa Wingate…
Here’s what the back cover says….
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.”
Truthfully, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started to read this novel as they don’t give much away in the description, but I guess that’s the point right!? Judging by the cover, and the almost 400 pgs, I was really hoping to love it! lol! ! And I’m happy to say that I did! It keeps you in suspense with lots of plot twists & turns, but not enough that you have no idea what’s going on! lol! Honestly, I kept thinking to myself that this book would make an awesome movie! lol! (maybe one day?) There’s mystery, intrigue, family dynamics, friendship, and a little bit of romance bit round things out! It’s a very modern book & writing style, and I think that many women can relate to the main characters struggles & what she goes through while trying to find the right path for her life!
Blue Moon Bay is definitely a novel that will keep you drawn in & entertained from start to finish!
