Product Description

"Lisa Wingate writes with depth and warmth, joy and wit."--Debbie Macomber

Heather Hampton returns to Moses Lake, Texas, to help facilitate the sale of a family farm as part of a planned industrial plant that will provide the area with much-needed jobs. Heather's future fiance has brokered the deal, and Heather is in line to do her first large-scale architectural design--if the deal goes through.

But the currents of Moses Lake have a way of taking visitors on unexpected journeys. What was intended to be a quick trip suddenly morphs into Valentine's week--with Blaine Underhill, the handsome banker who just happens to be opposing Heather's project. Spending the holiday in an ex-funeral parlor seems like a nightmare, but Heather slowly finds herself being drawn into the area's history, hope, and heart.

From the Back Cover

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Small Town Living...Big Town adventure! March 18 2013
By Momof4
Format:Paperback
I usually am a historical fiction snob...I like to learn a little bit about the culture of the different time periods that the books are set in...I particularly like to read about the fashion, rules of society...and customs that transport me to a different time and place. When asked to review Blue Moon Bay, I knew that this novel was set in present day and I was pleasantly surprised to find myself immersed in the culture of small town, Moses Lake. Having grown up in a small town myself, I found myself identifying with the secondary characters and really enjoying the interplay between them.

Heather Hampton always felt out of place, and like the school 'freak'. Her father was murdered and she is haunted by the fact that she witnessed the horrible scene. As soon as she was able she moved to the city and began her career and was feeling really settled in her big city life when her professional and personal life collide. The sale of family real estate will further her career and her mother and brother seem set on hindering the progress of the deal. Heather decides that she must return to the town she has spent most of her life trying to forget to convince her family to sell the property. Once back in town, Heathers path collides with the handsome banker, Blain Underhill, the high school football player she spent most of the past trying to forget. The swirling waters of Moses lake brings change with the wind as a sense of mystery pervades over the last few chapters. I must say the ending was very intriguing and much different than I would have guessed!

I would recommend this book, and give it 4 stars! I was given this book for purpose of review from Bethany House Publishers. I am under no obligation to give a positive review.

3.0 out of 5 stars a little too slow-going Oct. 31 2012
By Laura Fabiani TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
Heather Hampton is an architect working for a big firm in Seattle when she finds herself reluctantly going back to her hometown of Moses Lake to find out why her family suddenly decided not to sell their farmland. Everyone is keeping secrets from her, from her mother to her brother, her uncles and also her once high-school crush Blaine Underhill. Something is going on and Heather is determined to find out and then skedaddle back to her high-powered job where she doesn't have to face her painful past.

Heather has big issues with the death of her father when she was a teenager and her estranged relationship with her mother. She is angry, frustrated and hurting because her family is keeping things from her. I was kept guessing until the end about what was going on with Heather's family. There were times when I thought they should have trusted Heather and told her rather than lie to her and string her along. I was frustrated with their behaviour too!

Overall, I enjoyed Blue Moon Bay, although I found I couldn't seem to get into it at the beginning. It dragged in some spots, and finally picked up toward the end and came to an action-packed ending. Heather gets to grow as a character and she begins to appreciate her past memories as not being all bad. She reconnects with Ruth, the Mennonite woman who took care of their household when she was a child. Through conversations with Ruth about family and God, Heather gets to thinking of her own life and if she is really happy with her life.

Wingate reveals her characters slowly and the picture of their lives is like a jigsaw puzzle that slowly comes to life, so you need to be patient as a reader. In this way this is more of a character-driven novel. The romance was under-developed though, and after such a long story, the ending seemed a little abrupt. If you like contemporary stories of small-town folks, Southern characters, with a little bit of mystery, you will enjoy Lisa Wingate's latest novel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Happy to return to Moses Lake April 19 2012
Format:Paperback
Not long ago I was charmed by Lisa Wingate's first novel about Moses Lake, Larkspur Cove, so when Blue Moon Bay, set in the same location became available I was eager to dive in.

Even with the following promo on the back cover I was still surprised by how much mystery and suspense filled the pages.

"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."

Once again I was captivated by the sights, sounds and movements in Moses Lake, turning page after page, trying to make sense of the riddle Heather was pondering:

"The future is a blank page, but not a mystery."

Heather finds her answers and deepens her faith in ways she never expected.

If like me, you love a good story, come on down to Moses Lake and get lost in the tale of Blue Moon Bay. You won't be disappointed.

I received a complimentary copy of this novel from Bethany House
