The Blue Mountain Collection
Blythe Heywood denied her destiny when she left Finn Lanigan behind thirteen years ago to return to her fiancé, a wedding, and the life of safety and security that she'd yearned for since she was a child. But in the wake of her husband's betrayal, Blythe is forced to begin again. And it's her memories of Finn, the only man who ever weakened her knees, that call her across the Pacific Northwest in search of the next chapter in her life.
Starting over in the foothills of Blue Mountain changes everything Blythe thought she knew as she learns that sometimes the road not taken is actually the path that is meant to be. The first book in the Blue Mountain Series joins Tess Thompson's lovable but complex characters with a mature love story about second chances, families, and learning to love after loss
Nothing was as it seemed... The description was good, the characters were well developed, and the plot was wonderful. I can’t wait to read more of Tess Thompson’s books! This was a first for me, and I’m hooked! I’ve already downloaded the next book in the series, “Blue Moon.” You have a new follower Tess!
This is a tale about love at first sight, missed chances, family dramas, suspense, secrets, some paranormal activity, colorful characters and the creation of families where none were before.
Sparks fly when opposites attract, and so it goes with Ciaran Lanigan and Bliss Heywood. He's the handsome playboy. She's the studious executive. And their chemistry? It's off the charts.
But beneath his charming facade Ciaran is a haunted man. And the more he opens up to Bliss, the less she's sure she can trust him. Is he really in danger, or is he just a danger to Bliss? Can two people who love with all their hearts face the ever-lurking threats of secrets, lies, and family together?
Blue Moon is the second installment in Tess Thompson's acclaimed Blue Mountain Series, but may be enjoyed as a standalone novel.
In the spirit of Nicholas Sparks, with intrigue, romance and unexpected plot twists, Blue Moon is a wonderful escape. I enjoyed the quirky Portland descriptions, I may fall in the sensible shoe and fleece wearing demographic. The characters are vivid and and their relationships well developed. I enjoyed the humor and honest dialogue. I am looking forward to the next book in this trilogy.
I am a huge huge fan of Tess Thompson’s books. Her character development and ability to bring them to real life always amazes me. I love them, I hate some of them, but the emotions I feel as I read are so real. Her ability to weave a dreamy background and interweave several plot lines just makes reading her novels a huge loving rowdy fun dreamy journey.
You can never go wrong with a book by Tess Thompson. Her prose is heartfelt and tender. Blue Moon is no exception. I have read every book that Ms. Thompson has written. I always enjoy the escape she provides, her rich characters, and look forward to her next book.
