Book Description

When a wrong turn and a broken down vehicle lands Bronwyn in the town of Moonshine, she feels she's stumbled into the middle of a tragic story she began writing years ago. But how can this be? Is she crazy? Could what she wrote be a reality that extends far beyond her imagination? There is just one problem. She never completed her book. Now she must finish her story by dealing with all the terrors she unleashed years ago, will she be able to pull off a happy ending?

Editorial Reviews


I am enthralled by this book- Jaqueline Van Blarcom
Denise Daisy is a writer that can spin a story that pulls towards the young adult teetering of emotions but still binds you to an adult world that is close to home and just around the corner. You can believe that this story is happening someplace around the bend and she inspires feelings of wanting to experience the characters, landscapes and descriptions for yoruself. I am spellbound and can't wait to read the next book.
Thoroughly Intriguing! - The Barefoot Writer (Melbourne, Australia)
I haven't read a story like this in years. I found I was wanting more with each chapter. I couldn't put it down in spots, and I am hanging out for the second one in the series.
That's what this story is to me. A great tale that you can't quit reading. Intrigue, romance and fantasy all rolled together. Thoroughly enjoyable.

2.0 out of 5 stars I may be premature, but... August 26, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Okay, I apologize in advance to those who have given such glowing reviews. I have to be honest and say that this is an in-process review. I have not finished reading this book, and sincerely hope, based on the very positive reviews already posted here, that I can.

One word. EDITING. Okay, maybe a few more... I wish, wish, wish that authors who self-publish would simply invest the couple hundred dollars it would take to have a manuscript professionally edited. I assure you,the payoff would be worth it. More people would look for additional books to purchase from those authors, and publishers would be more likely to take a second glance (see Heather Killough-Walden as an example). I, personally, will NEVER purchase another title from an author after struggling through missing commas, improper apostrophes, run-on sentences, etc... despite how compelling the story may be. It's too difficult. I get so thrown out the story - so frequently - that I start editing before my mind can process what I'm reading. That's the case for this book.

I have made it halfway through chapter 4 and had to put my Kindle down to write this review. I want to read this book. I want to love it. I can tell that there is potentially a great story here, but so far I can barely keep track of what's happening. I lost my focus on the storyline while counting missing commas (123 so far, but I'm estimating since I didn't write it down).

I will attempt to edit this review after (if) I finish reading.

Follow-up review.

I tried. I really tried. I did get several more chapters after firmly attempting to ignore my inner editor. And I succeeded, mostly. Then I realized that I was still having trouble following what/who/where/pov-whose? I'm sorry Denise.

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow start September 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I started this book I didn't have high hopes because of the over used "vehicle broken down on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere" thing. To be honest, I did have to read several chapters before I really got into it. If you're going to read it I just have to say, give it a shot before you put it down. While it did start out slow, I feel that this book was just an introduction to a great series; a book just building the foundation for the bigger picture. Aside from the grammatical errors which have already been mentioned, I really fell in love with it. I definitely recommend trying it out and I have recommended it to several friends.

2.0 out of 5 stars My Kingdom For an Editor August 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like the story, I really do, however, I weary of protagonists who we're told are special when nothing in the text supports the claim. There are supporting characters who are amazingly underdeveloped given the amount of description spent elsewhere. The bigger concern for me was the lack of commas that made the run-on sentences tough going. An editor should have caught that, and also caught the homophone problems (their/they're, etc.). There are many good and great books for $.99 or less; this is not one of them.

2.0 out of 5 stars Please!!! December 22, 2012
By Bookie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wanted to like this book, I really did. However, I am really getting tired of these Kindle books and their lack of editing. This book was particularly bad--misuse of the wrong word that a fifth-grader should know the difference between. I agree with some of the other reviewers that I was so jolted out of the story that I finally had to walk away. Which was too bad because the plot itself sounded intriguing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting story! March 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I recently bought The Secrets of Moonshine & Haytham for my Kindle and read them both in just 3 days. They were exciting and I can hardly wait for #3 to come out so I can finish the story. Having said that, I must say I had some problems with the books. Although I am no English major, I do have a hard time with poor grammar, misspellings, improperly used words, etc., and these books were filled with them. I noticed "sense" used instead of "since" many times, "their" used instead of "they're", "busted" instead of "broken" (one of my BIGGEST pet peeves), missing commas, etc. While these made me cringe when I read them, they did not take away from my anticipation of the release of the third book in December 2012.

4.0 out of 5 stars Up and Coming New Author December 26, 2011
By Shyla
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am an avid reader. I started reading this book based on the review of my daughter-in-law. It started out slowly and somewhat immature, but her technique grows with the story. By the time I got to the end of the book, I had to have more! This author is going to be one of the great ones!! Give this book a chance and you won't be disappointed!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Please edit this book March 28, 2012
By Amaruk
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story has great potential, however it is marred by a serious lack of editing. The author has made all the mistakes that exist: typos, grammar, repetitions, misuse of words, sagging middle, artificial situations (the heroine goes out alone, meets danger and is rescued by the hero, the heroine falls asleep or faints) etc. Self-publishing is a great opportunity for authors but please, please spend the three hundred dollars a professional editor will charge to point out everything that is wrong with the book. Then Denise, you'll have a much stronger book and you will be on your way to success. You have a chance to edit this book and re-uploaded. Don't miss it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Have most authors given up on grammar and spelling? July 20, 2012
By Beth S.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Too many errors in this book. I just don't understand why people choose to ignore basic grammar and it was distracting. I think grammar is too important to just ignore but sadly too many people disagree.

I am surprised I finished this. My only excuse is that it is summer and I have more time on my hands. Once I got so far I had to finish it. The story was different, slightly intriguing but slow. Three/fourths of the book was about the main character being suspicious of the town, heartbroken, and fighting her feelings for the mysterious stranger she just met. The same themes were constantly repeated. I found myself skipping paragraphs. How the rest of the characters thought it was normal to have a town in the middle of the mountains with cafes, stores and people milling all around even though they never saw any other cars on the highway is beyond me and totally unbelievable. When the main character starts to discover the secrets the book ends. I guess that's one way to get you to buy the sequel. I think I'll pass.
