Twice in a Blue Moon

Another quick read this week,  Twice in a Blue Moon by Christina Lauren.  This was an enjoyable read that I had originally picked up from the library to complete a prompt for a book with the moon on its cover.  The book is about Tate Jones,  a young women about to embark on her young adulthood at college.   She is from a small town in Northern Ca but we meet her during a 2 week vacation with her grandma, Nan, in London.  There she meets 21 year old Sam and his grandfather, Luther  who are in London for a 3 week trip of their own. The 4 end up touring together and Tate & Sam become close.  Then the trip is over and reality sets in.

The book then moves forward 14 years and we catch up with Tate as she is working on a movie set in Ca.  We learn a bit about what her life has been like for the past 14 years.  Her history with relationships has been unusual to say the least.   Her history and secrets have lead her to have a trust and commitment issue.  This film set reunites her with Sam and we watch as her relationship with him and her father are revealed to us.  We cannot help but hope she finds happiness.

If you are looking for a good read be sure to check out this book.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I found this to be an enjoyable quick read. It's a chick lit book focusing on overcoming betrayal by those you considered to be reliable and trustworthy. We first meet Tate Jones while on a dream trip to London after high school Her Nan has taken her from her small town in Northern California for 2 weeks to celebrate before leaving for college in the fall. Things don't go quite as planned but they have a wonderful trip and meet some male friends to enjoy the city with. Sam and his grandpa, Luther, have traveled to London for a 3 week trip from their farm in Vermont. Turns out though everyone has some secrets they are keeping.

The book quickly jumps forward 14 years and we meet up with Tate as she is working on a feature film on location on a farm in California. We get a glimpse at the behind the scenes world of Hollywood including the ugly side of being in the public eye. Through the book we watch Tate grow and learn to trust her heart. She must overcome the disappointment she feels when some relationships prove to be less than they seem on the surface.

Overall this was a good book and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
