Blue Moon Bay by Lisa Wingate - Reviewed

About the Book:(from Bethany House publishers)

Every Once in a Blue Moon Your Heart Waits at a Crossroads

For Seattle architect Heather Hampton, a trip back to tiny Moses Lake, Texas, is hardly in the plan. Yet because a promotion hinges on the sale of the family farmland, Heather heads to the last place she ever wanted to go. She's determined to return home, signed contract in hand, the next day.

But the currents of Moses Lake take visitors on unexpected journeys. As Heather's stay lengthens, she discovers a family steeped in secrets and an unexpected connection to local banker Blaine Underhill, despite his opposition to Heather's project. With each new revelation and question, Heather can't help but wonder if the handsome banker--and the family she has come to know again--are crooks or crusaders. Somehow she must find out the truth before she loses everything she has worked for and everything she's found on the shores of Moses Lake.

My Thoughts:

“The future is a blank page, but not a mystery.” (p. 374)

Wow! Wow! and Wow! And to think I almost missed the blessing of this book! Lisa Wingate has created a special story indeed! Heather Hampton comes home for business incentives – to save her family from making a huge mistake. Instead, she uncovers almost two decades of deadly secrets!

This is the most unexpected blend of realistic human frailties and relationships, faith and fear, and a layer of secrets that bind generations of lives together in a way you can’t begin to imagine. And the truth that you end up with in the end….priceless!!

I am SO GLAD I didn’t miss this story!! Fabulous, Lisa!! Fabulous!!
