    If you enjoy a good Christian romantic fiction with a bit of suspense then this is your book. Leanna Ellis did a wonderful job in combining romance, suspense and keeping in line with Christian beliefs. The romance wasn't too heavy, it was just enough. The suspense was great. I had no idea where she was going with it. And I am usually pretty good in figuring out what is going to happen before it does.I loved her characters. Bryn, Howard and Sam were wonderful and felt real. Their stories were believable and had you wanting more for them.This is definitely a page turner and once you pick it up, you won't want to put it down until you have finished reading it.

    The main character in this wonderfully quirky and entertaining novel is Bryn Seymour. Her mother died on July 20, 1969, the day that Apollo 11 landed on the moon; her death was under suspicious circumstances. Bryn was only nine years old at that time. She never knew the identity of her father. She was raised by her mothers mother, Bryn makes her living as an obituary and features writer for the Houston Chronicle. She has become a cynical woman who is not sure there is a lot of good in the world. Forty years later, her path crosses that of Howard, who was a friend of her moms in high school. He was also an employee at NASA at the time that Bryns mother was employed there. Bryn thinks Howard may not only shed some light on some of the holes in her life story, but would also be an interesting subject for a feature article.Howard has an interesting world view. He has inside information from his time with NASA, and wants to spread his message. His son, Sam, moved to Howards small town in Texas, Marfa, in order to keep an eye on him and help him out when needed. Sam is a preacher man, and the sparks fly when he meets Bryn. I dont want to give away the ending of the book, but I do hope Ms. Ellis writes a sequel, so I can see the outcome of a potential relationship!Her descriptions are vivid, and her attention to detail is keen. She does a wonderful job in transporting the reader into the lives of the characters, and making you care about them. I was particularly taken with the Bryn character; we have a lot in common, including being from close to the same era, time-wise, and growing up without a father. I am working on getting rid of my cynicism also! I really enjoyed Once in a Blue Moon, & plan on doubling back to read the other Christian fiction books by Ms. Ellis that I have missed. This book was provided to me by B&H Publishing Group for review purposes. Reviewed by Andrea Schultz Ponderings by Andrea
