Sometimes trust is the toughest lesson to learn.
Sophie Shaw is days away from signing a contract that will fulfill her dream of owning a vineyard. For her, it’s a chance to restart her life and put past tragedies to rest. But Duncan Jamieson’s counter offer blows hers out to sea.
Duncan still finds Sophie as appealing as he had during boyhood vacations to the lake. Older and wiser now, he has his own reasons for wanting the land. His offer, however, hinges on a zoning change approval.
Bribery rumors threaten the deal and make Sophie wary of Duncan, yet she cannot deny his appeal. When her journalistic research uncovers a Jamieson family secret, trust becomes the hardest lesson for them both.
Share The Moon by Sharon Struth is a touching story about learning to love again. It has everything you could ever want in a book love, steamy kisses, immediate attraction, mystery, and drama. The main characters both experienced some type of loss and that’s one of the things that bonded them together. This is the first book by Sharon that I have read and it will definitely NOT be my last.
They say you always remember your first love. Well, Duncan has never forgotten his, Sophie Shaw. She has haunted him his whole life. While vacationing in Northbridge, He used to love the days when he and his father visited the local tackle shop. It was there that he fell in love at first site with the beautiful Sophie. The only problem was she didn’t really know he existed. When he has the opportunity to return again after all these years, he eagerly ceases the opportunity. The only problem is that Sophie has no clue who Duncan is. Though it doesn’t help that Duncan lied and said his name was Carter when they first meet again.
Sophie is on the verge of getting the thing she has wanted for a long time, owning a vineyard. The only problem is a company called RGi has swooped in and outbid her for the land. The night of the big town meeting over the land, she meets a handsome stranger who introduces himself as Carter. He is new to town or so she thinks. She gets the shock of her life when she finds out that “Carter” really is Duncan, one of the owners of RGI. The immediate attraction between them is hard to deny. The only problem is she is assigned to cover Duncan and RGI. If her boss finds out she has a thing for him, she’s afraid of what will happen. The fight over the land commences and only one can win.
Though it got off to a slow start, this story was amazing and you couldn’t help but be immersed page after page. I found myself neglecting everything and everyone around me. What made this book even more interesting was that it was about middle aged single parents. Many books lately focus on twenty something individuals. Even though that’s my age, I like to read about a variety of different ages. This is definitely a book I will recommend to everyone.
I can’t wait to read more by Sharon. Excellent job.
