“Beneath the harvest moon…
true love can bloom.”
A single dad, who’s in over his head, and an event planner running from her past, are drawn together on charming Bluestar Island by a determined seven-year-old and her escape-artist goat.
Event planner, Charlotte “Aster” Smith, has fled the only life she has ever known. The situation has left her questioning her own judgment as she cautiously tries to create a new life for herself on Bluestar Island. Taking the job of event coordinator for the small town is a step in the right direction. The only problem is it’s currently a part-time position, but the mayor suggests with additional funding the position could transform into a full-time job. In the meantime, she needs a second job in order to stay financially afloat.
Farmer and single father, Sam Bell, is struggling to keep his aging farm from going bankrupt while raising his young daughter. And now that his daughter’s babysitter is heading off to college, he needs help. So when he finds Aster is in need of work, he thinks his problems are solved. But things aren’t always what they seem. And he can’t help wondering what Aster is keeping from him.
In the lingering rays of a Bluestar Island sunset, Sam and Aster find themselves dancing upon the sand. As they help each other heal, the possibility of a future together becomes tangible. But will the ghosts from their pasts extinguish this budding romance?
Includes a delicious recipe for Aster’s Amazing Apple Cobbler!

Oh my! There's nothing like a small-town, heart-warming single dad story! I've never visited the New England area, but I feel like I have! Bluestar Island is a fabulous setting with wonderful townsfolk, and Sam, Aster, and little Nikki (and even Dash) are unforgettable characters.
I love the depth this story carries without being heavy and depressing. There are deep moments and painful pasts, but they are mingled with lighthearted times and sweet, magical moments.
Harvest Dance is a wonderfully written story with underlying themes of hope, trust, love, and overcoming the past. It's the second book in the Bluestar Island series but works great as a standalone.
Disclosure: I received a complimentary copy of this book. My review was not influenced.
