Today I’m really excited to participate in the Blog Tour of ‘Share The Moon’ by Sharon Struth. ‘Share The Moon’ is a contemporary romance novel and is the first book in the Blue Moon Lake series. This book got some great ratings on Goodreads and Amazon since getting published in on August 4th.
I hope you enjoy your stay at ‘Maureen’s Books’.
About the Book:
Sometimes trust is the toughest lesson to learn.
Sophie Shaw is days away from signing a contract that will fulfill her dream of owning a vineyard. For her, it’s a chance to restart her life and put past tragedies to rest. But Duncan Jamieson’s counter offer blows hers out to sea.
Duncan still finds Sophie as appealing as he had during boyhood vacations to the lake. Older and wiser now, he has his own reasons for wanting the land. His offer, however, hinges on a zoning change approval.
Bribery rumors threaten the deal and make Sophie wary of Duncan, yet she cannot deny his appeal. When her journalistic research uncovers a Jamieson family secret, trust becomes the hardest lesson for them both.
"Heart-tugging small town romance with real emotion.
Struth is an author to watch!"
—Laura Drake, author of RITA-award winning The Sweet Spot
When I read the description of ‘Share The Moon’ by Sharon Struth I was immediately interested in this story. I didn’t really know what I could expect but the cover (that’s one good looking cover right? LOL) and the prospect of a small-town romance story made me really excited about this book.
In ‘Share The Moon’ we meet Sophie Shaw, a forty-four year old woman still living in the town in which she was born. Sophie live has been hard the last couple of years. Being a divorced mother of two teenagers isn’t exactly how she dreamed to end up at this age. But finally there is something that makes her really happy. The prospect of achieving her dream to open up an wine vineyard. But unfortunately for Sophie a New York rich guy out bid her. If that isn’t worse enough, this New York guy is Duncan Jamieson. Duncan is really handsome and he also seems to be a decent guy but Sophie isn’t really in the position to fall for the New Yorker, seeing she is a journalist and can’t have her feelings clouding her journalistic judgment. Soon Sophie and Duncan are more and more attracted to each other, but trust is something that doesn’t come easy for both of them.
From the moment I started reading ‘Share The Moon’ I really loved it. This book was very easy to read and it was very interesting from the very beginning. Although I first thought this book would only be a romance novel I was pleasantly surprised when I found a little mystery detective stuff in this story. I really enjoyed reading about Sophie’s live in the small town, with friends she’d known her whole life. And I really loved the romance between Sophie and Duncan. There is so much hurt in both their lives that it was really hard for them to open up to their feelings and to trust one another. I loved the way Duncan still remembered everything about Sophie from when she was thirteen and he was visiting her town. I loved how Duncan got really nervous around Sophie, although he was always a really confident, sometimes even arrogant guy.
The character I loved most in this book was definitely Duncan. I loved how he learned from his mistakes and tried to change his life. I loved how he felt all these feelings for Sophie and I loved how he struggled with those feelings and expressing them to Sophie. I loved how he told these horrible lines to Sophie. He was just really swoon worthy!!
In ‘Share The Moon’ Sharon Struth really did an amazing job in getting all these feelings across to her readers. I felt sad while reading this book, but also happy, enthusiastic and excited. This book was just a perfect small-town- romance story and I loved every part of it.
