Sexy entrepreneur Schooner Moore receives the birthday bombshell of a lifetime - his true love, college girlfriend Mia Silver, the girl who broke his heart when she fled without even a goodbye at the end of their freshman year, has been seen on Facebook.

Feisty New York City advertising agency owner Mia Silver receives a shocking and unexpected email - a Facebook friend request from first love Schooner Moore, the guy who decimated her heart and soul when he committed the ultimate betrayal.

Now 24 years later, Schooner discovers the truth behind what drove Mia from him as he tries to once again win her love.

From teens on a southern California college campus to successful business owners on opposite coasts, this sweeping saga follows two lovers whose hearts could never say goodbye.

This is the first book in the Needing Moore Series and is not meant to be read as a stand-alone. Book 2 Moore to Lose and Book 3 Moore than Forever are currently available.

    Definitely a must-read!

    I have to say, i was a bit sad in the beginning, wondering how you go from head-over-heels in love, to just nothing. but it makes sense...at one point, you really could just disappear with no trace. But they found their way back to each other thanks to good ol facebook! This was a great, well written book! Definitely looking forward to the next part in the series! And about it being a series, of course it is! I can tell there is still so much more to their story! And the cliffhanger at the end... oh my!! I love it!

    "Searching for Moore," Book 1 in the "Needing Moo

    "Searching for Moore," Book 1 in the "Needing Moore" Series begins in the present day. Schooner Moore's wife, CJ, is throwing a lavish party to celebrate his 43rd birthday. It is filled with "the beautiful people," superficial individuals who only wish to be seen at this party to rub elbows with the rich and famous. Schooner Moore is both. What CJ and her "guests" fail to realize, however, is that Schooner dislikes the shallow displays of artifice that are his life and social circle. Then, his college buddy, Beau, casually mentions that he has chatted with Mia Silver, a classmate from college, via Facebook.

    As Schooner reminisces, we are transported back twenty-four years into the past. He remembers their freshman year of college and the first taste of independence, of "finding himself," meeting diverse people and learning about true love. Schooner meets and is immediately attracted to CJ, the quintessential, beautiful prom queen. They are the "perfect" All-American blonde couple, who would be featured in an ad for Ralph Lauren. He also meets Mia Silver, antithesis to CJ, sassy New Yorker, attending school in California, who marches to the beat of her own drum. CJ fits into his world, effortlessly, like a well-decorated room that lacks personality. Mia challenges his mind, steals his heart and completes his soul. Schooner and Mia are each other's first true love. Then, Mia leaves him, without a word.

    We return to the present day and Schooner sends Mia an innocuous Facebook friend request. A friend request that she is fated to accept. The story continues as the veil of time is lifted, a lifetime of betrayal by CJ is exposed, and that first true love is renewed.

    Ms. Richman writes Schooner so that the reader is able to see the "real" Schooner that Mia sees. He has spent his life as a handsome shell, a chameleon who morphs into whomever he is expected to be. He has been incredibly successful in business, but we know he is so much more. Conversely, Mia is a ray of sunlight, warm, ebullient, full of life and loyal. She is successful, loved and will bring balance back into Schooner's life. Unfortunately, not everyone is pleased with this reunion, especially CJ and Zac (CJ and Schooner's son - who inherited his personality from CJ).

    We live a lifetime through their story. There is the angst of first heart break, the ambivalence and acceptance of life's circumstances, and the joy and hope for renewed, healing love. Then, Ms. Richman ends this rollercoaster ride of emotions with a cliffhanger the reader sees building from the middle of the story, but is incapable to stop. Searching for Moore is funny and quirky, profound, poignant and moving - all at the same time. It is the best book I have read about aging Generation-Xers, this year.

    Exceptional debut for Ms. Richman! I need the second book NOW!! (Book 2 "Moore to Lose" is scheduled for release in September!!

    Sucked right in!

    I loved this read!!! The idea of finding your first love and having that second chance is the unseen dream of many people. So reading this story of Mia and Schooner is so heart warming and promising. This one has to be on every romance lovers' must read list.

    A good fantasy read with great descriptions of the Long Island and New York landscape. Fire Islanders should be Searching for Moore.

    Searching For Moore is a very well written book.The characters are very believable. If I had any criticism at all, it would be the use of swear words, but, that is just me. I know most readers do not mind the words. I am looking forward to reading book 2 and 3 of the series.

    Realistic love

    Real love at 40 and the long road from age 16 that got them there. A story of realism, heartbreak,friendship,love, lust, and tragedy. Real life stuff that made it not only interesting and fun to read but relateable. Definately not boy meets girl, both"hot", girl in distress, guy wealthy and rescues her. Way deeper than all that nonsense.

    Absolute MUST read for sure. I could not put this book down. Emo

    Absolute MUST read for sure. I could not put this book down. Emotional roller coaster and so much stuff goes down. I don't know why I punish myself by reading these kind of books that take you for an emo ride and you want to bang your head against the wall (or put the book down and walk away for a little bit 'cause you can't handle the drama) but these kind of books are just so freakin' AWESOME. Cliff hanger ending, of course (it's killing me). Loved every moment of it and can't wait for the next book to come out. The second book, Moore To Lose, comes out in September and can't get here fast enough. Start reading Searching For Moore. You won't be disappointed. Just disappointed that it had to end the way it did and now you have to wait to see what the heck happens. I love Schooner! And totally love Schooner and Mia together!

    Another Series! Scream!!! Worth the read...

    The characters and the love story are fantastic, worth the read!! If had not been another 'wait and see' series, I would give it a better rating; but, I hate waiting for another book to be written to see what happens....and I really hate it when there is no clue as to when the next book will come out.

    Grrrr!

    I hate to spend HOURS reading a book, get sucked into the characters lives, and then be left hanging at the end, realizing only at that point the story is continued in the next book(s)! I am not humored by the authors' misguided, greedy intention of selling more books to finish the storyline. Tell me up front if it's not a stand-alone book and that i'll need to buy more to get a complete story:(
