SHARE THE MOON
 A Blue Moon Lake Romance

“Heart-tugging small town romance with real emotion. 
Struth is an author to watch!”
~ Laura Drake, author of RITA-award winning The Sweet Spot ~

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.

Excerpt

“Manhattan.”

Sophie adjusted her crooked scarf. “Living here will be a big change.”

“I know. I’ve always loved this place, though.” Duncan reached out and tenderly brushed a leaf off Sophie’s shoulder. His gaze flowed down her body like a slow trickle

of water.

An unexpected burn raced up her cheeks.

He lifted his brows. “Hey, I never knew the lake went by another name. The town website said the original name came from an old Native American word.”

She nodded. “Puttacawmaumschuckmaug Lake.” The long name rolled off her tongue with ease, the pronunciation a rite of passage for anyone born and raised around the body of water. “It either means ‘at the large fishing place near the rock’ or ‘huge rock on the border.’”

“What?” He chuckled. “Puttamaum…”

She shook her head and repeated the difficult word. “Puttacawsch—”

“Nope. It’s a toughie. That’s why a reporter who visited here at the turn of the century suggested in his column we change the name. He said the water’s beauty was as rare as a blue moon, and the phrase stuck.”

He grinned, easy and confident. “My kids will love this place.”

Kids? Sophie buried her disappointment. “Are you and your wife looking at the other towns bordering the water?”

“No. I like Northbridge. Oh, and I’m not married,” he said matter-of-factly. His gaze arm-twisted her for a response.
