June 1, 2013 Cedar Key (Book 3)
Cedar Key has long been a place of rest, healing, and release in the Claybourne family. But it might also be the birthplace of a lie that is poisoning the family from within. Join the strong Claybourne women--Anise, Kimberly, Jayme-Leigh, Heather, and Ami--as they each confront the truth. Their unique paths will lead them through heartbreak, misunderstandings, and pain. But their journeys will also bring reconciliation with each other and renewed love in their own lives.

In her lyrical, evocative fashion, Eva Marie Everson weaves a tapestry of complicated relationships that, when complete, reveals the most beautiful work of art there is--family.

My take on this book:

"Slow Moon Rising" is the third and final book in the Cedar Key series and I am really going to miss these characters. Each book was like visiting with old friends. While this is a series book, it could probably be read as a stand alone work, although I would suggest reading the entire series, because each book is great! I thought the author did a great job of wrapping things up with this final book. The story was unique because it was told from the point of view of five different women, spanning from the year 2000 to  present. While this could have been confusing it wasn't instead the author does a splendid job of creating such unique characters that the transitioning went smoothly. I find myself drawn to family relationships and this story certainly had that. It touches on so many pertinent topics that it is easy to find something or someone to relate to! Overall, I am going to miss my trips to Cedar Key, and will be watching for whatever Ms. Everson decides to pen next!

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
