Overview

29 year-old professor of Modern Literature Astrid Kent is enjoying her summer in Seattle when she gets a call that catapults her back into her sordid past. Her mother, famous artist Maeve Garza Kent, has died suddenly back inBrownsville, Texas, and Astrid has inherited her home and other belongings - including an ex-lover in residence.

Astrid goes reluctantly back to her childhood home, La Casa de la Luz. She soon realizes the house and grounds have secrets when her mother's ghost appears to her, she finds a letter and a coded note that say "trust no one," and she sees someone prowling around at night. Matters are complicated since Astrid is drawn to two men who spend time at La Casa: Manfred Banes, a painter with looks just as Nordic and chilly as his personality and the dark and driven Juan Marquez who broke her heart years before and is rumored to be in the drug trade. Astrid must determine whom she can trust before present events spiral beyond her control.

    "Moonlight on the Palms" by Lisa Green was a very sw



    "Moonlight on the Palms" by Lisa Green was a very sweet contemporary romance. In Ms. Green's writings you can really see she how "she fuses her love of the written word with an enjoyment of studying people." I believe she did a wonderful job with this novel... "Moonlight on the Palms" being a of betrayal and healing.


    This person Astrid Kent from Seattle was hurt in just two specific ways ....her ex boyfriend and dear mother. After eleven years of not speaking with her mother....her mother dies and now Astrid is back home in Brownsville...dealing with the will and going to the
    funeral ceremony........now she is at her mother's home where there are now two men Manfred Barnes and Juan Marquesz.. later.she see someone prowling at night around the house(La Casa) at night ...and then finds a letter and codes telling her not to trust anyone. What was strange about all of this?...later finding a paper behind her mother's painting of her....Astrid showed this paper to Manfred .......Was Astrid seeing her mother's ghost? Were these two men in love with Astrid? ....Did Astrid mother's home have secrets? Will Astrid be able to solve the mystery behinds her "mother's other-worldly help and be able to find forgiveness for her mother's betrayal?" Now, in order to get all of these questions answered and even more you must pick up "Moonlight on the Palms" to find out all of the secrets that will be revealed in this read and what a ending!


    "Moonlight on the Palms" was a good read for me and if you are interested in a good contemporary romance then this novel is a good read for you.

    Betrayal, Attraction, and Healing

    Astrid Kent was wounded by both her boyfriend and her mother. Eleven years after she was betrayed by them, she returned for her mother's unexpected funeral. Astrid's mother isn't resting in peace. With her mother's other-wordly help, Astrid is able to not only solve the mystery of her mother's death but also find forgiveness for her mother's betrayal. This is a story that will linger with me. Even though there are definitely sparks between Astrid and her ex-boyfriend, it's also a story I feel comfortable having my daughters read. Well done.
