    When Helen Honeycutt falls in love with Emmet Justice, a charismatic television journalist who has recently lost his wife in a tragic accident, their sudden marriage creates a rift between her new husband and his oldest friends, who resent Helen's intrusion into their tightly knit circle. Hoping to mend fences, the newlyweds join the group for a summer at his late wife's family home in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Moonrise?

    Story-wise, it wasn't necessarily the most original thing I've ever come across but it was quite enjoyable nonetheless and the mystery was excellently plotted. Also, despite what some of the other reviewers have said, the accents are very authentic, and this is coming from someone with family in the Carolinas. The accent isn't exactly the most pleasant I've ever come across but, truth be told, it is very accurately portrayed here, to the readers' credits.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Again, as said above, I'm not sure what the complaints over these narrators are about. I have listened to several books by Jennifer Bradshaw and she is AMAZING. I have not listened to Willow Hale or Elle Newlands previously but I thought they both performed admirably and I would happily listen to them again.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen to my audiobooks in my car on my commute to work. That being said, my commute is quite long (I travel from the city to an off-site base out in the middle of nowhere) and I happily finished this book in about half a work-week.


    Any additional comments?

    Where's the movie?!?
