My thoughts
I enjoyed revisiting Moonlight Harbor.  This time we get to find out more about Bonnie's life including her mom Loretta and her daughter Avril.  I love the name of their band the Mermaids.  It is a fitting name for a little beach town band's name.  It was also nice that Bonnie is not only talented at singing but at painting as well.  Wouldn't it be nice if we could get one of her mermaid themed paintings?  The way the three ladies were so close was nice to read about as not all families are that way.  I felt for Bonnie when Avril was so set to go to Nashville to further her career and Bonnie did not want her to go for obvious reasons.  What Avril did not realize if that mom was looking out for her the whole and did want her to get hurt, but at the same time Bonnie did want Avril to succeed. Poor Loretta (Glamma - love that name) showed her encourage and was always looking on the bright side and the good in people.  So much so that she could not see that her love interest was just not good for her.  All the ups and downs in this book kept my eyes glued to the pages.  I am looking forward to who we get to hear more about in the next book.

Break time is over!


I had to take a step back from blogging for awhile as it was starting to feel more like work and not so fun.  I am going to start sharing my book reviews again.  I am going to change things up a little and do monthly posts with the exception of books that I have been asked to review for authors.  There has been a lot happen since regulary posting and a lot of it was good.  

Right now I am finishing up reading The Sewing Girl's Tale by John Wood Sweet. A riveting Revolutionary Era drama of the first published rape trial in American history and its long, shattering aftermath, revealing how much has changed over two centuries―and how much has not.  I have been enjoying this book. 

I am also finishing listening to The Revolutionary Samuel Adams by Stacy Schiff. A revelatory biography from a Pulitzer Prize-winner about the most essential Founding Father—the one who stood behind the change in thinking that produced the American Revolution.  This has been an interesting book. 

Stay tuned for more posts in the near future.
