Sarah Cooper can’t believe that former
bad boy Mitch Defaco has returned to town, even cuter than
when he left. Now add that he has a teenage daughter that
he doesn’t know what to do with and Sarah realizes that the
little crush she used to have on him back in High School is
alive and well.
Sarah admires how he has turned his
life around and decides that since he seems to be on the
path of making big changes for the better that she will ask
him to help her. She has a secret that even her parents
don’t know about from her college years. She now is
terrified of men and while she was married to a gentle man
who has passed away she isn’t sure how she would even be
able to get over her fear to date anyone new.
Mitch knows he is bad news for Sarah,
no matter how sexy he finds her. But, how can he refuse her
request, especially when he learns about her past and her
determination to move forward.
Add two kids who get along great and it
will be an interesting adventure.
Ms. Novark has written a sweet tale in
Chasing the Moonlight. While I could see
where the story was going there were a couple of bumps along
the way that made the adventure exciting. I enjoyed seeing
how a town would treat both the “good girl” and “bad boy”
years later, who would see them as new people and who won’t
let the past be forgotten. I was especially interested to
see how the author handled Sarah’s parent’s views of the
past as well as current events. I enjoyed Chasing the
Moonlight and look forward to more offering from Ms.
Novark in the future.
