Lisa Wingate's new book, "Blue Moon Bay" is exciting and charged with feelings! The mysteries and happenings in a small Texas town held this reader's interest from start to end. I believe the book will be a best seller. Heather Hampton, an architect has to go Moses Lake, Texas to try and salvage a land deal her company is working on. Moses Lake is where she spent some unhappy times as a young girl. Roger, the "no dull moments" dog has a field day with Heather's personal things. His trek and command of the farm and folks presents funny and exciting times for everyone! Remember to read the riddle on the first page. It's significant and the answer extraordinary! This book will be long remembered. I very highly recommend Blue Moon Bay! Ed

Having only recently discovered and thoroughly enjoyed Lisa Wingate's books, I was really looking forward to Blue Moon Bay. It is NOT like the Daily, Texas or Lone Star Cooking series which were filled with filled with warm, lovable Texas characters. This was just a mystery with a Moses Lake setting having NONE of the warm, lovable characters. In fact I didn't like ANY of the characters. The plot moved VERY slowly and was filled with SO much secrecy that it was frustrating. I skimmed a LOT of pages because I was bored. The author gave some probably factual insight into the Mennonites but, though it was interesting, it caused the story to drag even more. Not at all what I expected from the author ... maybe she is trying to get away from a certain mold. I was very disappointed.

    Blue Moon Bay is the story of Heather Hampton, and her return to

    Blue Moon Bay is the story of Heather Hampton, and her return to her (unhappy) childhood home of Moses Lake, Texas. Forced to return home to facilitate the sale of some family land, she is confronted with the memories, fears, and secrets that her family has kept hidden for the past 20 years. Unraveling these fears and secrets will lead through trouble to a reconciliation with God.

    Friends, this book was trying to be too many things and as such, was none of them very well. I think the main problem that I had was that point of view of the reader was simply the first-person view of the main character, Heather. As such, it was exhausting - for almost 400 pages, we had to endure every thought and idea that she had. Even when, as the reader, you were 16 steps ahead of her. Perhaps if the author had told the story from a first-person omniscient, allowing the reader to hear the thoughts of other characters, the story would have moved faster. The other main problem that I had with the story was that it started out as a book about a girl returning home to confront her past demons, then it turned into a mystery, then a thriller, all the while still trying to be a romance. I kept saying to my husband, "This book does not know what it wants to be!" and "Why didn't someone edit this book better?"

    The story did have exciting moments, and I was glad to hear the resolution of the story, but I thought that overall lit was about 100 pages too long and that the story was too ambitious. Lets not even talk about my main criticism of Christian fiction: why don't the people just talk to each other. This book was a classic example of that, and considering how strongly this pet peeve is for me, the fact that it wasn't one of my two main problems is saying something.

    I'm a fan of romance, mysteries, and thrillers. But unfortunately, I just didn't really enjoy this book. Two stars out of five from me.

    (full disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book from Bethany House, in exchange for my unbiased review. I am not affiliated with Bethany House or the author in any way.)
