Book Review - Blue Moon Bay By Lisa Wingate

Publisher's blurb:

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.

My Review: It has been a very long time since I have disliked a book more than this one. This book was VERY slow going - I was on page 100 and still nothing of any importance had happened. The main character's every thought ended up a trip down memory lane - they was no continuity of thought. The scenarios were ridiculous; the dog buried your cell phone?! Seriously?! The main character rushes home to get answers, but then never comes right out and asks a direct question - a week goes by before she gets any answers, do people no longer talk to each other? The climax of the story is so outlandish, I would have been less surprised if the family had admitted to all being super-heros. I would not recommend this book to others.

Note: I just realized I had previously reviewed another book by this author, I didn't like that one either.
