For me, the earmark of a good book is when I find myself so immersed in a story that, when finished, I feel lost for several days afterwards without it. "Share the Moon" is just such a book. Not only does the backstory of Sophie Shaw and her family coupled with the budding romance between her and Duncan Jamieson appeal to our emotional side, but the plot, with its many twists and turns, keeps you guessing right up to the end. In addition, Struth creates a myriad of relatable & memorable characters throughout the book whose individual stories we want to get know better. "Share the Moon" was romantic, intriguing, humorous, and an easy & enjoyable read from start to finish. Looking forward to book #2 in the Blue Moon Lake series.

I enjoyed every page of this New England, small town, love story. Sophie’s a beautiful, divorced reporter with a heavy heart. Hunky CEO, Duncan, moves from New York City to small town, Northbridge, Connecticut, to slow down his life and raise his son.  Their paths cross when Duncan’s hope of building a small lakeside resort collides with Sophie’s dreams of a vineyard on the same beloved lakeside spot. Public hearings, small town gossip from years ago, less-than-honest zoning board members, a vulnerable brother, a zany environmentalist best friend and romance all combine to make Sharon Struth’s Share the Moon a page-turning joy. I can’t wait for her next book!

Charming small town, filled with secrets and puzzling mysteries, fueled on by gossip and tales. In Share the Moon you settle right into the small town living, the close knit friends known each other all their lives, families who for centuries have lived in the town. You can relate to the people, and fit right in with the circle of friends. I enjoyed reading about the growing attraction and relationship between Sophie and Duncan, and how the story unrevealed over time. They are both in their mid forties (not let the cover fool you), they have past marriages, children, and history, even between themselves from long time ago. The interest and allure just keep growing, even though all the odds are against them. The conflict of interest in their respected jobs, and family dreams, have set them against each other, creating friction. They are at opposite ends of every single issue in town. And every time they take a step towards each other, for a closer relationship, more secrets from the past are revealed, always putting a wedge between them, making them wonder the trustworthiness of each other. But they are willing to compromise, work on difficult issues, face them head on, and support each other where it is needed. A touching, charming, and colorful romance, in a vibrant and vivid small town America ~ Four spoons

Share the Moon was a wonderful sweet book. I enjoyed reading this story. Following along in Sophie and Duncan's story was sweet and interesting. Meeting the other characters in their life was fun. I really fell in love with the childhood memories, they were sweet, it made me happy to see Duncan's crush on Sophie when they were kids. It was a perfect circle, knowing each other as kids than growing up living their own lives, than back to where it all began and falling in love to complete the circle. Sharon Struth is Amazing. Thank you for this story.

This was an engaging book filled with new love, mystery, beautiful settings, & second chances. I enjoyed it very much mainly because the characters were "real", they had past hurts & made mistakes but used those to grow & create a new life together. I also thought the mystery surrounding much of the story was well written & kept me guessing on how it would be resolved. This was the first in a new series & the first book I've read by this author..... I look forward to the next book in the series & will also check out the authors other books.

3.5/5 This is the first book in the Blue Moon Lake series. Duncan and Sophie are both vying for the same vineyard. They both have their own reasons for wanting the vineyard. Sophie is upset when she finds out Duncan out bid her.  They can't deny though the sparks between them. Then secrets start to unravel and their trust is put to the test. This is a great romance. There is just enough spark to keep you loving th romance with out to much of the other stuff. The cover does not match the story which I didn't really like. Besides that I think this story is a great story for anyone who love romance and mystery.

Duncan and Sophie are both dealing with loss in their past and the effects it has on their family. Duncan had a crush on Sophie when his parents used to summer in her small town years ago and they are attracted to each other as soon as he comes to town. Then they find out that they are competing for a piece of land but for very different reasons. This is an enjoyable read. I found it a little bit drawn out, but it does have a little bit of a mystery  with a twist thrown in that I'm sure you will not be expecting.

SHARE THE MOON is a love story between middle-aged two people who've been hurt by what they thought was love but in truth was obligation and duty. The premise of the story is all about waiting for the love of your life but neither the hero or heroine have done that, settling for who they thought was the right one for them at the time. Now they find themselves alone and vulnerable, desperate to trust another with their hearts. Family drama takes a front seat in the book. While Duncan’s family mystery was intriguing to read, I was disappointed that the love story often took a backseat to the investigation into the mystery itself. There are good supporting characters that guide but don't lead the story. I was interested in knowing more about Duncan’s brother and his story. The town set-up is definitely worthy of more novels and there are stories in the secondary characters worth telling. I hope to see them in the future. It’s a good story, full of emotion and drama. I recommend it for a light read.

Share the Moon is a great easy read. I really liked both Sophie and Duncan. The story has it all and kept me reading into the wee hours.  It is nice to read a story that the main characters are older than the normal. I wouldn't say I live in a small town but I really enjoy the dynamics of a small town.  In Share the Moon Sophie is trying to purchase land that is very important to her but Duncan also wants the land.  I am not great at reviewing because all I have to say is I like or I don't. This is definitely in the like column.

I received an Advanced Released Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Let me say that Sharon Struth has once again written an exceptional piece of fiction. Share the Moon is the first book in the Blue Moon Lake series and it is about family, forgiveness and love. In the small New England town of Northbridge, Sophie Shaw is hoping to purchase land that holds a special place in her heart. Just days away from signing the contract, Duncan Jamieson, president of RGI a development company, comes in and outbids her threatening to take away her dreams and something she holds so sacred to this land. Unaware of Sophie’s offer, Duncan has his reasons for wanting to own the land but has also come to Northbridge looking for a place to settle down and call home. Sophie is a journalist for the town newspaper and is assigned to report on the proceedings surrounding the RGI development deal. She and Duncan’s path seem to continually cross both professionally and personally and she begins to see a different side to him than what she expected. She no longer sees him as the ruthless business man but learns that he has a more sensitive very appealing, sexy side. However, when someone leaves Sophie notes insinuating that Duncan and his family are hiding things, she has to decide how to proceed. Does she put her trust in Duncan or use whatever tactics necessary to get his bid thrown out? Share the Moon is beautifully written and the characters are so well developed that you can’t help but be drawn in. You immediately connect with them and can feel their emotions as they both struggle with self growth, acceptance, letting go and moving on. Sharon’s descriptive writing style pulls you in and makes you feel like you are a part of the quaint little town of Northbridge. Make sure to get your copy and come along on the journey.

Find this review and more at Lusty Penguin Reviews! Share the Moon, the first book in the Blue Moon Lake series, is a delightful and touching story of trust, second chances, and true love by Sharon Struth. Sophie Shaw, reporter for the local paper, has finally met a man who makes her heart skip a beat, Duncan Jamieson. That is, until she discovers Duncan owns the development company that outbid her family for the land at Blue Moon Lake where Sophie’s family planned to open a vineyard. The land by Blue Moon Lake is significant to Sophie as that land used to belong to her family before it was lost in a game of cards. Of even greater importance, the memorial garden for Sophie’s eldest child, Henry, is on the land too. Sophie needs to put her feelings about Duncan aside since she covers the various legal and zoning proceeding associated with the resort. Furthermore, Sophie knows she needs to tread carefully because her previous lover not only burned her personally but professionally too. At their first meeting, Duncan recognizes Sophie from his summer visits to Northbridge even though she doesn’t remember him. Trust is a huge issue for both of these characters. As such, Duncan knows that his little white lie about his name when he introduces himself to Sophie starts this potential relationship off on the wrong foot. Sophie and Duncan are compelling characters, and I absolutely adored that they are forty-year-old characters balancing teenage children, jobs, and extended family. Sophie is dealing with life as a divorced mother who has lost a child. As a people pleaser, she always has a hard time standing up for herself, with which I could empathize. And even though it has been years since Henry’s death, Sophie is still grieving, and she realizes her grief is affecting her other two children. While Duncan, on the other hand, is a widower coming to terms with his failures as a husband and father during his marriage. Sophie and Duncan’s relationship seems to take two steps forward and one step back as they both learn to trust one another personally and professionally along with learning to respect each other’s feelings. Watching Sophie and Duncan work through these issues is a beautiful thing, which, at times, will have you reaching for tissues. Realistic situations, an enticing couple, and surprising plot twists make Share the Moon an unforgettable romance. I, for one, am looking forward to future stories in the Blue Moon Lake series.

Sharon Struth brings a lovely story of second chances with this first novel in her new Blue Moon Lake series.   Sophie is a reporter for the local paper, and her family used to own land on the lake, where they hoped to build a vineyard.  An older woman (40’s), Sophie is hoping to reclaim the land as she still hopes to build that vineyard, and her oldest son’s memorial garden is on this land as well.  Her last relationship ended badly, and she hasn’t been looking at men in ‘that way’ in a while, until she meets Duncan.  Duncan is a developer and owns the parcel of land that contains Sophie’s dreams.  He recognizes Sophie, but doesn’t share pertinent information about his connection to the proposed development with her.   These two are delightful characters, a bit older than most romance readers are used to: they have previous marriages, extended families, teenaged children and a lifetime of regrets and insecurities that prey on their ability to trust and move forward.  Sophie is still grieving her divorce and the loss of her eldest child, but realizes that her being stuck in that grief is affecting her other children.  Duncan is a widower and is dealing with his own failures as a husband and father during his marriage.  These two have a rocky and tumultuous relationship that jumps forward and back repeatedly as they learn to trust and communicate with one another.  Wholly gripping, their flaws and strengths are laid out for readers to see and empathize with, and perhaps even recognize. You will be cheering and jeering in alternate measures, with several tears of the happy and not so variety mixed in. Plot twists that take the story in unexpected directions and the sense of family and home that is highly intertwined in the story make this an unforgettable and enjoyable romance, full of everything that a reader could wish for.  I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via NetGalley for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

A small town, a big lake, old secrets and ever-raw losses--Share the Moon, first in the Blue Moon Lake Series by Sharon Struth, grabs all of those in a top hat, stirs it up a bit, and manages to pull out magic. There is not a detail of setting or character left for us to guess at. Struth gives her readers exactly what is in her head to create a fully-realized town and the people in it. We know every facial tick, every thought--what we don't know is the mystery hiding just behind each face, in each head. Struth gives her readers just enough to pull us along, to make sure we keep turning the pages--and just when you think the mystery is solved, it takes another turn. I found myself stealing reading time just to get one more chapter in. The characters, real people and not some over-idealized props, make believable mistakes, assumptions and decisions. On that note, I felt a little misled by the cover. While it has its obvious perks, from it I got the impression the characters were younger; one of the best things about this book is that the characters were not the usual twenty-to-thirty-somethings that seem to dominate the romance genre. Sophie and Duncan, both in their forties, sizzle, and not just when they are together. The romance is beautiful, just enough heat without getting into the nitty gritty. I would say it's a great summer romance read, but it's not just for summer. Whether cozied up by a fire, reading in time with the book, or on the beach, imagining colder weather, it's just the right time.
