My Thoughts

Today is my tour stop for The Last of the Moon Girls.

What a story!  When Lizzy left Moon Girl Farm years prior, she had no interest in ever returning.  She had no idea that her grandma, Althea, the woman who raised her, was sick until it was too late.  Now Lizzy must return home to get the farm ready to sell.  It doesn’t take her long to realize that things have not changed on the farm or in town.

When she was a little, two missing girls were found in Althea’s pond so the townspeople automatically assumed she had killed them.  Seeing Lizzy back in town brings back old memories the towns people don’t want to remember.  Never believing her grandma could commit such an act, Lizzy is determined to clear her name.  However not everyone is happy that she is snooping around trying to find answers.

This book was nothing like I thought it was going to be.  I was pleasantly surprised that a lot of it was about trying to find out who murdered the girls.  There is also a little romance along the way, which I loved!  Lizzy never wanted to be a part of the Moon Girls Legacy, or utilize the gifts she was always told she had.  However, the more time she spends on the farm and the more time she spends with the only man who ever stood up for her, Lizzy realizes there may be more to her legacy than she thought.

Lizzy Moon never wanted Moon Girl Farm. Eight years ago, she left the land that nine generations of gifted healers had tended, determined to distance herself from the whispers about her family’s strange legacy. But when her beloved grandmother Althea dies, Lizzy must return and face the tragedy still hanging over the farm’s withered lavender fields: the unsolved murders of two young girls, and the cruel accusations that followed Althea to her grave.

Lizzy wants nothing more than to sell the farm and return to her life in New York, until she discovers a journal Althea left for her—a Book of Remembrances meant to help Lizzy embrace her own special gifts. When she reconnects with Andrew Greyson, one of the few in town who believed in Althea’s innocence, she resolves to clear her grandmother’s name.

But to do so, she’ll have to decide if she can accept her legacy and whether to follow in the footsteps of all the Moon women who came before her.
