Review & Giveaway: A Moonbow Night by Laura Frantz

a-moonbow-nightA Moonbow Night was an absolutely beautiful tale that transported me back to 1777 Kentucky. I loved everything about this novel! The cadence of the writing added to the overall tempo of the story and helped me to actually feel as if I was working my way across the land with Sion, Tempe, and the others.

Sion and Tempe were such interesting characters. I felt so deeply for Tempe and the internal struggle she had from the loss of her first love. I also enjoyed learning more about Sion’s past and what exactly happened with Harper.

A Moonbow Night was full of beautiful scenery, danger, romance, and interesting characters. It kept me enthralled from beginning to end.

(5 stars)

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts and opinons are my own.

Be sure to enter below to win a print copy of A Moonbow Night!


a-moonbow-nightAfter fleeing Virginia, Temperance Tucker and her family established an inn along the Shawnee River. It’s a welcome way station for settlers and frontiersmen traveling through the wild Cumberland region of Kentucke–men like Sion Morgan, a Virginia surveyor who arrives at the inn with his crew looking for an experienced guide. When his guide appears, Sion balks. He certainly didn’t expect a woman. But it is not long before he must admit that Tempe’s skill in the wilderness rivals his own. Still, the tenuous tie they are forming is put to the test as they encounter danger after danger and must rely on each other.
With her signature sweeping style and ability to bring the distant past to vivid life, Laura Frantz beckons readers to join her in a land of Indian ambushes, conflicting loyalties, and a tentative love that meanders like a cool mountain stream.
