    This is a good book to read on cold night by a warm fire. While the book is fiction, the characters seem believable . Each chapter takes the reader to unexpected events. The book keeps the reader's interest to the end . The ending while not totally unexpected gives the sense completion. This definitely a feel good story.

    This quick, fast-paced read is definitely a page-turner. Julie is a lovable, strong protagonist, and the characters are really memorable. Humor in the dialogue breaks up the dramatic action scenes. Chapter after chapter, there's never a dull moment in Julie's new "quiet" town in South Dakota. And not normally one for paranormal romance, I couldn't put it down. There's a perfect balance between action, romance, mystery and comic relief. If you're looking for a fun, thrilling read, I'd definitely recommend it!

    What a page-turner! I loved this book...it was fun and fast-pace

    What a page-turner! I loved this book...it was fun and fast-paced with GREAT dialogue. I felt like I was living in a small town in the Black Hills of South Dakota myself while reading. A wonderful feel-good novel...I can't wait for the sequel!!! Highly recommended.

    If you like werewolves and suspense, you need to read Touching The Moon!

    This was a thrilling werewolf story! It featured many animals including wolves that turn into men and Copper Pigs, music, romance, danger, suspense, Sioux and excitement.

    When I say romance, I mean simply that. There was no smut in this book. The steam which does happen is simply put and not described in any detail. This romance was slow building and sweet.

    The heroine, Julie, is a vet who had issues with her step daddy dearest and moves across the country to escape him. She takes a job in a Podunk town and shortly after arriving is courted by two very different men. Dan is a police officer and Gray is a Sioux.

    Julie is frightened by Gray for awhile because he is huge and she is still dealing with the fear that her step daddy instilled in her. Gray is a gentle giant though and soon she befriends him. :-)

    There are a handful of wolves, a community with meddling on their mind, a department of cops that adopt her as family, a fanatic stalker, and much more!

    I really liked this and I will be reading the next book as soon as it's available! I received an ecopy in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Nothing I expected and everything I wanted

    It’s been a long, long time — years, in fact — since I voluntarily picked up a paranormal story of the wolf variety. Like vampires, the whole shape shifter thing seemed tired, too often used to add some flair of danger to an otherwise run of the mill romance, & I’d given up on the subgenre. But for some reason that doesn’t make sense to me, I kept looking at the cover of this one, thinking maybe, just maybe… So I stepped out of my hermit cave and contacted another human being. Crazy, I know. As for how that turned out…

    Um…wow. Touching the Moon was nothing I expected and everything I wanted. And holy @#$%&*!, what a way to start the story! I love it when authors find a good way to draw me in immediately rather than put me through a long, detailed description of the character’s morning routine or whatever, but this one just might be the best opening scene I’ve read yet. Oh, but there’s more!

    The character development is uncommonly complete. Many stories wrap the hero and heroine in a bubble, with other characters tossed around in the background for comic relief or dramatic misunderstandings, but in Touching the Moon, we’re fully introduced to more than just who will be riding off into the sunset together. From Julie’s coworkers to the band to the boys on the baseball team, there’s a full cast of characters that are anything but two dimensional. And while Julie may be unexpectedly caught in a bit of a love triangle, neither suitor is so perfect that the choice is obvious, even to the reader.

    The romance is a slow, subtle build. Julie isn’t the most trusting of women, but her past abuse isn’t a crutch or an excuse she uses to be fickle. It’s mentioned, it still affects her, & yet it doesn’t define her. Both Dan and Gray seem to be good men, either of which she could probably have a nice, long happily-ever-after with, but she takes her time, takes their feelings seriously, & just tries to move forward. The potential relationships with both men are so believable that I started wondering if I even had it figured out, & by the time she seemed to lean toward a one of them, I half-expected a plot twist to push her in the other direction.

    What struck me most, though, is how well and fully the story is told. There’s no rush to explain every mystery too soon, no foreshadowing so heavily dealt that the conclusion is easily guessed. It’s clear that this author knows exactly how and when to deliver more. But while the other details and subplots could have easily become dull filler, they simply added to the charm of the entire tale. I was honestly surprised when I realized how far into the story I was, still absolutely hooked, & without a clue what was going to happen next. Even the paranormal aspect was more… well, it was just more. It was traditional and new at the same time, with a fresh and somewhat frightening adult aspect thrown in that I didn’t expect at all. And yet its delivery, like the rest of the story, was so perfectly timed that it surprised me just as much as it did Julie.

    I could go on and on, but what’s the point in that? The story is a hell of a lot better than anything I can describe here, so you’ll just have to check it out for yourself. I was lucky enough to notice it on a book tour and even luckier that the author gifted the ebook to me to read since our schedule was too full to fit it in during the tour dates. But now that I know what’s behind that mysteriously simple cover, you can bet I’l

    Touching the Moon  By Lisa M. Airey     I can¿t express how

    Touching the Moon 
    By Lisa M. Airey




        I can’t express how much I enjoyed this story.  Julie, a young veterinary student with a past she likes to keep quiet finishes her internship and moves out to South Dakota and begins work is a small town as one of the Vets in a small clinic.  Julie has a special gift with animals especially wolves.  One wolf in particular is bought in near death and she is able to save him and her life changes forever.  This wolf is special and she is about to learn over the next year just how special he is.  
       Being the new young single woman in a small town all the single bachelors begin to take notice.  There is Dan Keating from the sheriff department and the quiet Indian Gray.  Both find her attractive and possible mate material. Oh and there is one young man that finds her attractive but he has a special plan for her one that can cost her life.   Julie hasn’t been looking for anyone in particular but the bachelors of this little town find her very appealing.  They are all trying to get her attention but one of them is going to find her heart, if she can accept his secret.  You have got to read this, it is a love story, a wolf story, a shifter story and most of all it shows the strength of a survivor and how when you are least thinking it will happen life changes for you and gets so much better.  Five stars all the way.  I am looking forward to future books by this writer.   The good news is there may be a sequel Touched by the Moon.  I can’t wait.
