Once In A Blue Moon

Bryn Seymour was nine years old when her mother died under mysterious circumstances on the same day Apollo 11 made its historic lunar landing. Forty years later—divorced, working as an obituary writer, and duly cynical—she meets Howard, a conspiracy theorist who knew her mom and believes a small Texas town may hold clues to what really fueled her demise. Seeking closure, Bryn goes along for this men-in-black ride. But upon meeting Howard’s son Sam, an outspoken Christian, she can’t decide whose beliefs are more pie-in-the-sky.

The gravity of life has pulled Bryn down for decades. But a perfect love could be her first step to soaring. It only happens once in a blue moon.

Book Review

First things, how great is that title?     And you know how much I love book covers so when this book arrived I thought it was just wonderful.   

This book is about a lot of things, but mostly is about Brynda's fears of being alone.     Isn't that a fear so many people can relate to?      Brynda's mom was killed when she was only 9 years old.     She was killed on the same day the Apollo 11 landed on the moon.

Now she is grown and someone appears with supposedly knowledge about her mom's death.    There are hints of a Nasa cover up and all of it seems to be tied in and wound up to her mom's death.

I think that I would describe this author as very quirky.    It took me a few chapters to start to truly enjoy the book.    Not because the writing wasn't good but because she sometimes writes with a unique slant.
