Once in a Blue Moon Bay

"You know big brother, what's his name is right, you can't go home again."- Sally to Charlie Brown after they realized that the city had built a parking lot over the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm
(Written on the wall of wisdom, Waterbird Bait and Grocery, Moses Lake, Texas by Me- Cheryl Klarich)

Welcome to Lisa Wingate's new novel, Blue Moon Bay!
The characters in Blue Moon Bay must figure out if they can, in fact, go home again.  This is especially true for Heather Hampton, architect of mega complexes and re-inventer of her own life.  Only the direst of circumstances could call her back to her family home where many dark memories await- the most menacing being her father's death in the family farmhouse.

Heather does not want to be reminded of the feeling of the square peg in a round hole awkwardness of not belonging in the teeny tiny place known as Moses Lake, where her childhood was cut short by a stray bullet, the pressure of  caring for her artsy and incapable mother and helping her little brother get through the crazy times.  No, when Heather left Moses Lake, she never looked back.

Of course all that is about to change... Read the publisher's information (previous blog) below for more mystery and a darn good story. ;)
