Welcome to my stop on the The Last of the Moon Girls blog tour sponsored by Suzy Approved Book Tours! Thank you to Suzy for the invitation!
About the Book:
A novel of secrets, memory, family, and forgiveness by the bestselling author of When Never Comes.
Lizzy Moon never wanted Moon Girl Farm. Eight years ago, she left the land that nine generations of gifted healers had tended, determined to distance herself from the whispers about her family’s strange legacy. But when her beloved grandmother Althea dies, Lizzy must return and face the tragedy still hanging over the farm’s withered lavender fields: the unsolved murders of two young girls, and the cruel accusations that followed Althea to her grave.
Lizzy wants nothing more than to sell the farm and return to her life in New York, until she discovers a journal Althea left for her—a Book of Remembrances meant to help Lizzy embrace her own special gifts. When she reconnects with Andrew Greyson, one of the few in town who believed in Althea’s innocence, she resolves to clear her grandmother’s name.
But to do so, she’ll have to decide if she can accept her legacy and whether to follow in the footsteps of all the Moon women who came before her.
Lizzy Moon inherited the farm, one where nine generations of healers lived, after her grandmother Althea dies.
Two young girls were murdered on the farm, and the murders have not been solved. Althea was always a suspect.
Lizzy doesn’t want to return, but she has to. Althea left her a journal to help her recognize her own gifts. Lizzy is determined to clear her grandmother’s name.
I enjoyed the tension that built within the narrative of this story. Who committed these murders? Lizzy’s story completely fascinated me. There’s also a sweetness here that keeps it from being overly dark. Overall, I’m a big fan of this book and definitely want to read more from Barbara Davis!
I received a gifted copy. All opinions are my own.
About the Author:
I’m a Jersey girl raised in the south, now living and writing in New England. Confused? Constantly. Happy? Deliriously! But then, living your dream will do that! After fifteen years of wearing heels and schlepping a briefcase as an executive in the jewelry industry, I traded in my pinstripes for a little peace of mind, and decided to follow my dream of becoming a women’s fiction author. And what a ride it’s been! Six books later, I’m still pinching myself, and I’m still as much in love with writing as I was the day I began this journey. Maybe it’s because I believe in miracles, in happy endings and new beginnings. Heaven knows I’ve had my share.
I’m blessed to be married to my best friend and soul mate, Tom, who I must say, sets the bar pretty high for my on-the-page heroes. We also have a lovely ginger cat named Simon, who is twenty years old, wretchedly spoiled, and doesn’t give a fig if I’m on deadline or not. When I’m not making up stories, you’re likely to find me reading, cooking, watching college football, (Go Gators!) or spreading a little sunshine over on Facebook, on The Sunshine Page.
At the moment, I’m sitting on pins and needles, awaiting the release of novel number six, THE LAST OF THE MOON GIRLS, (August 1, 2020) In the meantime, I’m having a blast working on novel number seven, THE KEEPER OF HAPPY ENDINGS.
Have you read The Last of the Moon Girls, or is it on your TBR? Happy Reading! ~ Jennifer THR
