Coming Up: Cemetery Moon by Beth Gualda

Cemetery Moon has been sitting on my tbr pile, stack, mound even for a while now. I know that I shouldn't complain that I have so many books to read and review, because I seriously do love it, but boy oh boy do I have a stack of them!

Anyhow, Cemetery Moon by Beth Gualada sounds like an impressive read. It's currently carrying many 4 and 5 star reviews on Amazon; however, there are so very few reviews which I know is so very frustrating for authors. I know how important honest reviews are for authors, so as always, I will ensure that when the time comes by review will be just that!

Following the murder of her beloved father, Mya Cotton is left bitter, heartbroken, and…a secret trust inheritance of two million dollars.  With it comes a neglected cemetery called Idlewild, which her father specifically gives to her because it is sentimental to him.  As Mya sets out to solve the mystery of the cemetery, her anger is fueled by Marco De La Zahn,  the equally bitter, unnaturally handsome estate attorney who courts her.  In stark contrast, showing up on her doorstep one night is her homeless new groundskeeper, Percival Shelby, another curiously handsome man, who speaks of love and caring for others as the key to true happiness.  It’s only when Mya makes a life changing decision that she learns the real identity of the two men in her life vying for her love, and is able to solve Idlewild’s final mystery and fulfill her father‘s last wishes.
Sneak Peak

I massaged my temples. Great. Just great. “It’s all moot anyway ‘cause he didn’t bite, so I guess I’m just being petty and resentful. For some reason, I thought he just might be interested in me on that level ‘cause he did ask me out. He certainly didn’t have to. And yeah, all right, sleeping with him may not solve the answer to my deeper emotional problems, but having someone hold you through the night sure as hell can’t hurt.” I took a forceful breath. I didn’t know why I was getting upset with Mercedes. She was absolutely right. She always was. “I really had no business sneaking off on a date and trying to have a good time anyway, considering my situation. I’ve got more important things to think about.”
At that, Mercedes made an exasperated sound. “Sneaking? Mya, listen to yourself. It’s been over a month. You need to dust yourself off. You’re still alive. It’s okay to start living again.”
I smiled in spite of myself. Hadn’t I just been telling myself that earlier? It was more compelling coming from an outside source however. I shifted in my seat.
“Then why do I feel so guilty trying to forget, and just be happy again? Why is it so hard for me? I know it’s been a month, but I can’t seem to get past the idea my father deserves all the grieving I can give him.”
“Oh honey,” Mercedes said with a heavy sigh. “You won’t ever stop grieving. But you need to learn how to live with it. You really think your dad wants you to stay miserable and hurting one minute more? Don’t you think he wants you to be happy again?”
I had to admit it. “Yes. I’m sure he would.” I closed my eyes. “I just don’t think I know how to be happy anymore.” And that was my real problem. “I don’t even know where to begin.”
“Sure you do. Going out tonight was a good start. Even if it didn’t end the way you had hoped.”
