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.


Review:

 Blue Moon Bay involves a woman named Heather Hampton who is working her way up in her company as an architect in Seattle.  She’s helping push the sale of family farmland in Moses, Texas, in order to help her chances of getting a promotion at her job.  When things aren’t going as planned, she has to make a sudden trip back to her old home.  She is hesitant to return, as she doesn’t want to deal with her mom, brother and the town members.  However, upon arrival, more problems come up than anticipated, forcing Heather to remain in Moses Lake to get things straightened out.
                 
When starting this book, I really didn’t think I would like it.  It starts out in an office setting and was a bit boring and hard to follow, but after getting into the storyline, I had a hard time putting it down.  It ended up being really good, and it had some mystery and suspense in it that kept reading more to find out what happened.  It just goes to show you can’t always judge  a book by the first chapter!
