WOW is all I
can say, and I am going to not mention that easter egg that is hidden in the
third book because that alone had me going ‘OMG!!” out loud in delight and
shock. Ms. Galenorn is on my auto-buy regardless of what she writes because I
just adore her books and with this third book in her new paranormal women’s
fiction series, Moonshadow Bay, we get a story that is complex, mysterious, and
more within its pages plus a few twists I sure didn’t see coming. If you read
books one and two (Starlight Web and Midnight Web) then you are familiar with January
and how she moved to Moonshadow Bay. If you haven’t then I highly recommend
reading those first two books before CONJURE WEB as it leads into this
one. I love January to pieces. She is older, more mature and I can relate to
her and her travels as she navigates life as a divorce and picks up the pieces
of a shattered marriage. What really intrigued me was how much she grew as a
character between all three books the reader sees how she continues to find her
strength and self-esteem again. Add in magical mysteries and secondary characters
that keep the story rolling along nicely and all that combined is my catnip, so
Ms. Galenorn’ and I am extremely impressed at how she continues to expand Moonshadow Bay while also introducing some new characters to discover, a few old ones to know more of and a place that makes me want to yell ‘ROAD TRIP’ just to visit. The characters are so different and unique but also independent which lets me enjoy all their personalities immensely and I love how beautifully written they are. With a story that flows seamlessly from start to finish, the reader is taken on a journey that will leave you spellbound. So, sit back, take a load off and settle in as January finds herself once again in the thick of things as a new case and family secrets come together to give her answers and more in CONJURE WEB. Now all I am anxious is now book four, Harvest Web to get here so I can see what else is in store for the gang in Moonshadow Bay.
