It was supposed to be the happiest day of her best friend's life. A wedding. Who would have thought that Louisa's ex would have shown up? And what is the deal with the angst between her best friend and her brother, during this happy occasion?
Deliver the Moon features angst and troubled waters for two couples. Louisa and Gabe, and Sarah and Arty, as a secondary couple.
Let's just say Gabe showing up isn't very welcoming, and of course, that piqued my interest. I wanted to know why? Why was some of Louisa's family so against him? And the biggest question, why show up now? Those pending questions kept me turning the pages, needing those answers. Louisa seems content with her life, but seeing the face of her ex husband brings all the pain and memories back. To complicate matters, Louisa is in a new relationship.
Louisa's family has it's moments. Her mother is very formal, and she's one of those women that doesn't show much affection, but instead wants constant order. Both her mother and father seem to have a plan for Louisa that she just simply falls into. There are dreams an aspirations we get a glimpse of, but for some reason, Louisa doesn't want tao ct on them. The return of Gabe brings constant questioning, as she ponders her life now, and what could have been with her ex.
I wasn't sure of Gabe. I didn't know what to make of him. He's the one that left, so naturally I thought he was in the wrong. But there was so much more to their break up than meets the eye. In fact, they shared a tragedy that neither of them ever got over, and it tore them apart. It's evident that Louisa's feelings are mixed, but she can't deny some of the things she's had resurfaced in regards to Gabriel.
With Sarah and Arty, their wedded bliss isn't so.Read more ›
This is my second read from this author and both times I've been pleasantly surprised.
This is a story about second chances. After the tragic death of their son, Gabriel and Louisa divorce, when they are unable to cope with the stress of losing Joey. Through some deceptive, but well-meaning intentions from someone who loves them both, they are brought together by way of a family wedding. Gabe dealt with his loss at the bottom of a bottle, and Louisa sought out her controlling family and neglected Gabe when he needed her most. Not only did they lose their son, they lost each other.
I loved Gabe, and although he put up a brave face, his inner torment broke my heart. While Louisa's family blamed Gabe for Joey's death, she never did, but instead of reaching out to him and standing up to her family, she allowed them to treat him as a villain rather than a victim of this heartbreaking tragedy. I took issue with this, however I applauded her growth and realization that she was as much to blame for Gabe leaving as he was. The story became rather repetitious; or rather Louisa did, with her struggle to gain a backbone. She knew what she needed to do, but it took her forever to do it. Then again, this was the underlying theme of the story, and I could understand how Louisa would question herself, when for so long decisions regarding her life were made for her.
On the whole, a clean romance, with one heated, nicely done scene of intimacy. There was plenty of dialogue, which I always enjoy, and a sweet secondary romance that had issues of its own. There were one or two matters concerning Gabe and Louisa, particularly with Louisa's family that I would have liked to have seen addressed in more detail, but other than that the story had some nice depth.Read more ›

Rebecca J. Clark is a new author for me and Deliver the Moon is the first book that I have read of hers and after reading only the first couple of pages, I knew it wouldn't be my last.
I enjoyed this book so much. I fell in love with Louisa and Gabe as they struggled to recapture their love for one another. They had to overcome the tragedy of losing their son, Gabe walking away when Louisa needed him the most and Louisa's parents dislike for Gabe. I was rooting for their HEA right from the beginning and I thought Rebecca did a great job sharing their journey towards a much deserved second chance. The epilogue was so sweet--I would have loved if Rebecca would have wrote it a few years out but it was still a great epilogue. I also loved the story between Sarah and Arty and Louisa's grandmom was so cute -- all three of these characters just added to the story.
I will definitely be looking for more from Rebecca J. Clark. 4 out of 5 rating.
