“Blue Moon Bay” by Lisa Wingate
“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.”
This book was a bit hard to get into but after a few chapters I couldn’t put the book down and the last 100 pages I couldn’t read fast enough to find out what happened.
Heather is forced to visit her old home town of Moses Lake to get her family to sign papers to sell their land to an investor, that would make them a lot of money. When she gets there everyone is giving her the run around. She suspects that there are a lot of lies going around and she doesn’t feel at “home” in her own hometown. The one person she does trust is her old housekeeper, Ruth. Ruth shares stories from the past with Heather, stories of faith and trust. She’s trying to help Heather see the really truth in life and to see what’s really important. As you’re reading you just hope it won’t be too late for a change of heart.
As I said before, the book started off slow, but if you keep with it, you won’t be able to put it down.
If you love suspense books, romance books and/or Christian books I think you’ll love this one too.
