We've had a bit of excitement at our house today. My husband and daughter were broadsided in a car accident. Thankfully no one was hurt, but it isn't looking good for the car. Sigh. But the bright spot to the day is the book I'm going to tell you about---Sun and Moon by Lee Strauss.
When I first started reading this book I was a bit put off because the first chapter starts out great, then goes to a flashback and down a road with a main character I wasn't sure I wanted to go. I was so glad I read on, though, because there was an unexpected twist and the author made the situation into something that really drew me to Micah, our hero. Boy, did that keep me turning pages. Micah is a mysterious man and a gentleman, and I couldn't wait to see how our couple overcame the obstacles in their way and how his secret would be revealed. Really well done!
I liked how the author brought the indie music scene into the book and really folded that into the characters' lives. She does a good job keeping the romantic tension between the two main characters and I enjoyed the happy ending. Ms. Strauss is a new author to me and I will be looking forward to the second book in the series.
Read on if you want to hear a bit of the soundtrack and learn more about the author and her book!
