Once in a Blue Moon by Leanna Ellis

Last year I was over the moon for Leanna Ellis' book Ruby's Slippers. Leanna is back again, this time with Once in a Blue Moon.
From the back cover:
She was only nine years old when her mother died under mysterious circumstances on the same day Apollo 11 made its historic lunar landing. In the decades since, thrill-seeking journalist Bryn Seymour has defied gravity, pushing each moment to count. Inwardly, though, she's resisted any close encounters. Skydiving is easy. Staying in a relationship? Not so much.

On assignment to write about the fortieth anniversary of the fortieth moon-walk, Bryn meets Howard, a loopy old gent full of conspiracy theories who drops a bomb on her world: he knew her mother. Could a small Texas town hold the secret to her mother's demise? Seeking closure, Bryn goes along for this men-in-black ride. But upon meeting Howard's attractive son Sam, an outspoken Christian, she can't decide whose beliefs are more pie-in-the-sky.

The gravity of life has always pulled Bryn back down to earth, but a perfect love could be her first step to soaring. The kind of love that only happens once in a blue moon.

I love Leanna's books. They are adventurous, fun and easy to read. This one is no exception. Leanna takes the reader on a journey through the past and throws in a little mystery, a crazy old man (that Howard is a hoot!) and a lot of love. Laugh out loud with Bryn as she takes this magical journey into her past which ends up slamming into her future.

This book was provided for review by the author.
