Murder mystery mixed with Magic. Enjoyed the read ( )
  Gingersnap000 | Nov 15, 2020 |
The Last of the Moon Girls by Barbara Davis is well-written, full of twists and turns, and not quite predictable. Bordering on the edge of magic, it is part mystery, part love story, and part fairytale, all rolled up into a story that is as intriguing as it is hard to put down. I loved it and easily got lost in the story, which is what I always hope for in a well-written novel. With likable characters, bits of folklore here and there, and a hint of magic, it bewitches the reader into falling under its spell of magic and mystery to the last page.

Barbara Davis did her homework, as the witchy aspects of the story are accurate and delivered in a respectful manner rather than the often sensationalized manner that some authors employ when writing about witches and the craft. Just as important, Ms. Davis has a strong command of English grammar and mechanics, making the story a pleasure to read without the burden of deciphering blatant errors.

Witches are a popular subject in fiction, and those looking for a book about witches will not be disappointed, even though that aspect of the story is more subtle. Mostly the book focuses on the themes of acceptance, unconditional love, and what it means to be an outsider. I truly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to anyone wanting to escape into the pages of a book with a story that feels like the reader has walked into a fairytale. ( )

Thank you to the author for this book which I won on Blue Sky Chats book group on Facebook.

I know I'm a broken record when it comes to reviewing books about family but I loved this book. It was magical, mysterious, and everything else rolled up into one book.

Loved the characters Lizzy, her mom Rhanna who comes back after years to the family farm after leaving Lizzy with her mother Althea which is why Lizzy comes back after she dies. She finds Evvie living there who took care of her grandmother for years when Lizzie was working in New York. I loved her comforting presence and would have loved to meet her if she was real.

There's a lot going for this book and I don't want to repeat the plot. ( )

Lizzy Moon has no other choice but to go back to her hometown. Her grandmother has passed and it’s time she goes back to sort through what was left her life, and try to close that door on her life for good. She lets her boss know she will only be gone a few days at most, it should not take much longer than that to button everything up. But Lizzy couldn’t be more wrong!

Your childhood home, no matter what has a feeling to it. It is there whenever you visit or go back. Memories, scents, nostalgia of when life was simple for most and all you worried about was yourself and what you were doing that day as a child. Lizzy also finds an unexpected visitor on the grounds, and that explains who had sent her the letter notifying her of her grandmother’s passing.

As Lizzy starts to sort through her grandmother’s life, and take into consideration Evvie’s two cents here and there she comes to the realization that she, herself has unfinished business and the farm is in need of more care than what she was realizing. No one is going to buy this place, and not with the haunting fact that two girls bodies were pulled from that pond. This place is haunted, as most people claim.

She sets out to solve the crime of who killed those two girls, because it was not her grandmother as a lot of folks in the town had claimed, and to finally put their souls to rest, as well as the rumor-ville that’s been rampant for years. But as Lizzy starts to investigate on her own, threats and warnings come quickly in her direction and there’s obvious signs that someone wants the truth to stay buried and for Lizzy to leave quietly like she did years ago.

With help of an old detectives and the neighbor who was always sweet on her, Lizzy slowly starts to try and put new life in the farm and dig into the old case as best she can. Although she does not get much help from the local police until threats and a fire happens at the farm. That finally get’s their attention as well as Lizzy continuing to ask around about what happened that night.

As Lizzy makes more contact in town, she also comes to the realization that many loved her grandmother and knew she would never harmed those girls. She is finding that this town is not as cruel as it seemed when she was young, and that there are those who are willing to help or point her in the right direction. Things seems to be moving in the right direction when someone from her past, is dropped on the doorstep. Someone she never wanted to see again.

Can Lizzy solve the murders of the girls to lay their souls and her grandmother’s to rest, as well as the get the farm in working order to sell and deal with the ghost of her past who has so brazenly descended back home as well? Very good, quick light hearted read. I did enjoy this novel and would defiantly read more by Barbara. ( )

Lizzy is part of a special family. Every woman in her family for generations has had a special, unique gift. The gift of healing. And when two girls die and are found in the Moon Girl Farm pond, the town accuses Althea, Lizzy’s grandmother, of being a witch.

Lizzy has been away from her family farm for quite a while. She has made a name for herself in NYC and she has no intention of ever coming back. Then she hears the news of her grandmother’s death. And the guilt of the past cannot keep away. She is determined to clear her grandmother’s name.

Lizzy is a force to be reckoned with. But, she has a soft side. Lizzy is a character I loved from the start. And let me tell you…nothing is going to stop her from finding the truth! She does not care who she makes mad or who threatens her. She is going to find out who the murderer is.

This is a story about family, love, and friendship. I enjoyed everything about this tale. The chemistry of the characters, the mystery and even the rumor mill of the town made this story unstoppable.

If you need a fantastic read…this is it!! Grab it today! Plus this cover is fabulous! ( )
