Publisher's Summary

Award-winning, best-selling crossover author Lisa Wingate pens inspirational Southern fiction that tugs at the heartstrings. Blue Moon Bay takes Seattle architect Heather Hampton to quiet Moses Lake, Texas, where a promotion at her firm hinges on the sale of family farmland for a proposed industrial plant. Her plans hit a few snags thanks to her quirky family and a handsome banker opposing the land deal. It soon becomes clear that providence has other ideas for her future, and maybe this small town is the place where all her dreams could come true.

Blue Moon Bay by Lisa Wingate

Would you listen to Blue Moon Bay again? Why?

I would listen to Blue Moon Bay again because the characters were well developed and the narration excellent.

What did you like best about this story?

The plot, play on words and the setting.

What does Johanna Parker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is able to draw a picture of each character through by the reflection she has in her voice. She could make a character believeable or not by the tone of her voice. She added humor that might have been missed if read silently.

Real people, real life, real Love

Where does Blue Moon Bay rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

First or second

What did you like best about this story?

Lisa's words flow like a leaf on a spring stream, sometimes gentle other times fast. She personifies the excellent wordsmith. The solid plot, real characters with real problems keep the reader involved. I especially like the way she shares romance. Real raw emotions that makes the reader feel sweet and tender after reading it--not dirt and used as some do. Nor do you think these are paper people without substance, without true longs and desires.

Have you listened to any of Johanna Parker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Great.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

suprising continuation of the Moses Lake Saga

loved it! Thought, I was surprised by the different story that erupted though a few characters from the first book were mentioned.

Like a bad Danielle Steele novel

To engage in this book, one would have to disengage their commonsense. The main character was inconsistent without adequate explanation. She is described as a very accurate architect but then erratic, demanding, and at times ridiculous. Like Danielle Steele novels, an angry self-isolated woman meets a guy she first doesn't like but later falls in love. This was predictable and cliche. I am returning this book and won't buy another in this series. I liked the first in the series but Blue Moon was a disappointment.

loved this!

The author has a way with words that it both deep and humorous. I laughed out loud many times and felt the tug on my heart also.

Great book

I enjoyed this book. It was interesting through out the entire story leaving you questioning everything until she ties it all together in the end.

Too long and religious

This was drawn out and too long. I kept thinking when will this end. Also, there was too many religious references that seemed to be manipulated into the story. I didn’t know this was inspirational when purchasing it.

Blue Moon Bay a bit different

I love Lisa Wingate stories and though subtle, the fact that her stories are faith based. Generally I root for her main character but this story was slightly different. I found the main character to be a very negative busy body. she always thought the worst and thought it was her business to decide how others live. The story did show a reason for it, but I could have done with A LOT less of her remembering her father and nose in everyone's business. Overall it was a decent story but the primary character in this one annoyed me.
