A Chance for Moonlight by Ella Dement
Kaitlin Petofi works at her family's cafe and bakery. Joe O'Reilly is a Merchant Marine, active duty. His existence feels uninhabited. Can Kaitlin bring life and hope and joy to him?
Beryl Gaelridge has had trouble in her past and James Tolbot came to her rescue. Can he help her put her life back together and forge a future with him?
Bram Gaelridge is a speaker at a conference and is Beryl's half-brother. Thalia Petofi is Kaitlin's cousin and is Bram's debate opponent, among other things.
I fell in love with these characters and would love to read more about them. You get to know so much about them in this short story. I wasn't ready for it to end. Their stories deal with real life issues like domestic violence, being an orphan, and sharing a life together. I was drawn in by the characters' dialogues and the situations they had to deal with. Beryl and James were my favorites. I could feel Beryl's pain, frustration, and fear. Would love to read more about these characters and can't wait to read more by this author!
I received a free copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.
