Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times and USA Today best-selling duo behind The Unhoneymooners and the “delectable, moving” (Entertainment Weekly) My Favorite Half-Night Stand comes a poignant romance that follows two people who fall in love during a life-changing overseas vacation - only for the truth to change everything once they return home.

As an adventurous send-off to her childhood, 18-year-old Tate Jones travels with her grandmother from their small town in Northern California to London. But the vacation of a lifetime is wonderfully derailed by the appearance of two charming Vermont farmers: grandfather Luther and his handsome grandson, Sam.

Sam and Tate fall hard and fast. For two glorious weeks, the couple share their hopes, dreams, and secrets. Sam admits he suspects his grandfather is dying and that this could be the last trip they take together, and Tate reveals that she is the hidden daughter of one of the biggest film stars in the world - a secret she’s never told anyone before.

But when Tate is exposed by a crush of cameras and reporters, she knows she's been betrayed by the one person she thought she could trust. She is forced to decide whether she will return to her quiet life or embrace being in the public eye. So when Sam reappears in her world more than a decade later, can Tate forgive the past and rekindle the passion they shared on their magical trip abroad? And does she even want to?

With Christina Lauren’s signature “beautifully written and remarkably compelling” (Sarah J. Maas, New York Times best-selling author) prose, Twice in a Blue Moon is an unforgettable and moving novel of young love and second chances.

The narratorrrr

I had to stop listening. The narrator clinged to the last syllable of every word. It reminded me of when teenagers add an obscene amount of letters to the end of a word while textingggggg.

Good story...narration leaves a lot to be desired

This was a well written, lovely story. I enjoyed it. It wasn’t too heartbreaking and flowed really well. The only thing that pulled the story down was the narrator. She has their weird cadence to her voice where she hangs on the last syllable of her words that is weird and annoying. Other than that this book was delightful

Didn't enjoy narration

I tried to finish, but the narrator had (to my ear) a really annoying habit of weirdly stretching out the last syllables/sounds of some words. I returned the audiobook and will get the ebook. Others may not even notice it, but I couldn't get past it.

The narrator spiked it

Nice story but the narrator’s style with that long dragging on the last syllable makes it really hard to listen to.

Meh

Generally I enjoy and tale that Ms Lauren pens. This book was the exception. I did not finish it. I didn't ask for my credit back. Maybe I will give it a go again later. This story seemed to miss the "flow" and humor I enjoy in her writing. Erin Mallon did an excellent job narrating.

Such a fun read!

I loved this story - it was a bit predictable but what romcom isn’t?! It was very sweet and easy to listen to. I didn’t love the narrator - her male voices were all the same.

Eh it was fine

This book is unbalanced and spends too long in the past and not enough time in the present. As the story is told from Tate's perspective it's understandable to get a less clear picture of who Sam is, however Sam never really felt like a fully fleshed out person, but instead a collection of plot points and reasons for the heroines angst. This book feels less like the love story of Sam and Tate and more like Tate's journey. The present day romance moves too quickly and the ending does not feel earned. Still as a light angsty beach read it works.
