“The Moonstone stories are so entertaining you don’t want to miss one.” ~ Stephanie B. for Fallen Angel Reviews
A delightful Christmas feast. Dame Moonstone, Christine DeSmet, takes us to Moonstone for “When Rudolph was Kidnapped” (a Mischief in Moonstone story). A wonderful tale of small town life. ~ Melissa for Classic Romance Revival. 5 Wings!
“All She Wore Was a Bow” by Christine DeSmet is a warm holiday tale filled with sweet romance and holiday surprises. I loved the setting and characters. 4.25 stars! Fang-Tastic Blogspot
In “When the Dead People Brought a Dish-to-Pass” (A Mischief in Moonstone story, Story 4) by Dame Moonstone (Christine DeSmet), Alyssa Swain’s world is pushed into overdrive when there is a car crash near her house and later that night the dead man walks through, literally, her solid wooden door and starts helping her getting the house ready for a Dish to Pass party for her dead relatives. In trying to find out who he is, and where he came from, Alyssa makes friends throughout her new hometown and it surely becomes home to her. Then she finds out he is a man in a coma in Texas. Can they find a way to fall in love? Can she find a way to keep him on this side of death? And can she find peace from her own demons? ~ Melissa for Classic Romance Revival, 4 Wings!
“The Big Love & Murder Shilly-Shally in Moonstone” by Christine DeSmet.This story is good, if a bit far fetched, and I enjoyed it a lot. Rating: You Want to Read. ~ Janelle for You Gotta Read.
“The Big Love & Murder Shilly-Shally” in Moonstone seems positively slapstick. Tootsie, sparkling with spangles from the get-go, is utterly implausible and impossibly fun. DeSmet has created this one character with such depth and breadth she almost obscures even the handsome Jules. A very fun read. ~ Snapdragon for Long and Short Reviews blogspot. Rating: 4 Books!
Although “The Moonstone Fire” (Men of Moonstone series, Book 1) by Christine DeSmet is the first book of a new set of Moonstone stories, the secondary characters are from the first Moonstone book, so you may want to read those stories first. This is another cute Moonstone story. The Moonstone stories are so entertaining and fun, you don’t want to miss one. I enjoyed “The Moonstone Fire” and am looking forward to another adventure. ~ reviewed by Stephanie B. for Fallen Angel Reviews. 5 Angels!
