Twice in a Blue Moon by Laura Drake ~ REVIEW

Laura Drake is a very talented author that has a way with very emotional story lines. I know when I pick up a Laura Drake book I'm going to experience a gamut of emotions. While reading Twice in a Blue Moon I had tears in my eyes a few times. I laughed out loud a time or two and I was left with that wonderful awe feeling that made my heart swell with happiness. 

Indigo Blue has been through a lot lately. This poor girl found her once in a blue moon love and then lost him. She has lost her love, her confidante, and the guy she could always count on to have the answers. Not only is she grieving she has to deal with starting a new life. She is one strong lady with a lot of spunk. She is also sweet, kind, and has a huge heart. I admired this woman for having the courage and determination to make her new life as a winery owner work, one way or the other.  Her name certainly fits her. It's a very unique name fitting for a unique lady. 

Danovan DiCarlo has suffered a horrible loss and has been dragged through the mud by people he thought cared. Not only is he dealing with a tragic loss, he has to deal with the damage that has been done to his sterling reputation and find a job.  

Indigo and Danovan are just exactly what the other needs. They are the perfect match. She needs someone that knows everything there is to know about wine and is willing to take a chance on a small operation. He needs a job to work his magic with wine that is willing to take on a guy down on his luck. 

I enjoyed watching Indigo learn about the wine business and Danovan teaching her literally from the ground up. I enjoyed watching these two get to know each other while working closely together. Friendship turns into an attraction that is quite hot. There are many obstacles they are going to have to overcome in order to make a romantic relationship work. There are secrets that have to be told, tragedies that have to shared, and dramatic situation or two that they have to work through together. 

Twice in a Blue Moon is a prime example of the writing I quickly came to love and expect from Laura Drake. This lady has a talent with emotional stories that just about break my heart in two before she mends it back together with that awe moment. 

I am always thrilled when I hear that Ms. Drake has a new release. I have been a fan of her work since her debut release. With the end of each book I anxiously anticipate her next release. I can not wait to see what wonderful heartfelt story she comes up with next.

I was given the opportunity to read this great story so that I may share my thoughts with you. As always it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you on Twice in a Blue Moon.
