    1. Title: Slow Moon RisingAuthor: Eva Marie EversonPages: 384Year: 2013Publisher: Revell Slow Moon Rising is the last installment in the Cedar Key Series and was preceded by Chasing Sunsets, Waiting for Sunrise and Things Left Unspoken. I read Waiting for Sunrise some time back and enjoyed the story so much that when an opportunity came to read this novel, I couldn’t pass it up. There are some who read every book of series in order and some like me who forget to read the other books. Whether you [...]

    2. The luscious cover on this book is what first caught my attention, the family epic inside is what held it.Slow Moon Rising does not falter once through all its 376 pages of story.I am left wondering: who is the woman in white alone on this sunset beach? It could be any of the women whose stories are revealed inside the coverIt could be Anise, who fell in love with a newly widowed man over 20 years her senior. She married Ross Claybourne, and grew to love his four daughters even they rejected her [...]

    4. I've been trying slowly to read some of the books that have been on my Kindle unread for varying lengths of time. I was pleasantly surprised by this series. The family dynamics were interesting, and the inspirational tone free of sermonizing.

    5. Written in all the places I love in Florida, I wasn't sure I liked the book for the setting, but no, I am now broken-hearted that I have to let the characters go.

    8. Eva Marie Everson in her new book, “Slow Moon Rising” Book Three in the Cedar Key series published by Revell gives us a view into the life of Anise, Ross, Kimberly, Jayme-Leigh, Heather, and Ami.From the Back Cover: One family, one secret–and one chance to make it rightThe beautiful Claybourne home on Cedar Key has long been a place of rest, healing, and release. Each member of the family has turned there in times of confusion, loss, and hurt, only to feel their spirits renewed and their h [...]

    9. From the very beginning, this novel kind of got off on the wrong foot with me. Anise’s attraction to older men was something that I could not relate to at all, and I actually found it kind of disturbing. When Anise first meets Ross, she is 38, and he is 60. Those ages are fairly close to the ages of my father and me. So, I was pretty uncomfortable with this relationship from the beginning, and I found it hard to shake even as I kept reading the book.This novel is told from the points of view o [...]

    10. Title: SLOW MOON RISINGAuthor: Eva Marie EversonPublisher: RevellJune 2013ISBN: 978-0800734381Genre: women’s fiction/family sagaOne family. One secret. And one chance to make it right.

    11. MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOKI am so sad that Slow Moon Rising is the end of the Clayborne family and the Cedar Key community. This has been a most heartwarming series. I love the way Ms. Everson takes every day family situations and weaves them together for our enjoyment. The Clayborne family is a pretty much disfunctional family, with each member having his or her own secrets and problems they struggle with. In this last book in the series, those secrets come to surface. Each of the four Clayborne [...]

    12. A stunning cover drew me to read this novel. Ms Everson's story kept me reading.My first experience with the Cedar Key series, I was surprised when the story first changed to a new character's view and placement in another year. Definitely an interesting, in depth understanding of the characters resulted from the author's technique. As the story progresses, the reader is offered installments from the interconnected lives of the several Claybourne family women. A contemporary novel featuring fami [...]

    13. This is an interesting, emotional book that tells the story of four sisters and their step-mother over a little more than a decade. We get each of their perspectives as the story switches between them, jumping ahead in time with each one. Anise falls for a man over twenty years her senior in a whirlwind courtship and finds herself a step-mother to four women. Kimberly, the oldest, and Heather, the third, are married with children and have seemingly perfect lives, but not is all as it seems. Jaym [...]

    14. Doesn't this cover just call to you and make you want to read Slow Moon Rising? This was one I was really looking forward to reading! It was more than I could have ever hoped for!The love story between Anise and Ross is one of the most beautiful I've ever read. I think what sets it apart is that it's not your traditional love story. It's a "May-December" romance between two people that have lived lives, aged accordingly and did not meet in their youth.I think we often forget that not every love [...]

    15. Not a favorite, but a sweet story nonetheless!I wasn't sure what I expected to find in Slow Moon Rising but what I found certainly wasn't the picture in my head. I had to force myself through the first few chapters and I struggled getting into the story, particularly when we kept changing point of view every few chapters. While I'm glad to say it got easier to read as I went, I never fully connected with any of the women aside from Ami. She's my not-so-secret favorite.I loved Eva's vivid descrip [...]

    16. When I came across Slow Moon Rising on NetGalley I knew I needed to download it for a review. The cover photo and even the title give the book an eerie feel. Early on you realize there is something odd going on but you just aren’t quite sure what it is.The first several chapters are told from the point of view of Anise then the narrative switches to the different daughters and Anise. Once it switches to the daughters you really begin to realize that something just isn’t right. There are buri [...]

    17. I want to start by saying that I loved the first two books in the Cedar Key series. This onet so much. It felt very thrown together and none of the characters were very well developed. Sad to have the series end this way.he final book in the Cedar Key series is nowhere near the high caliber of the first two. It almost seems as if Everson had quite a few ideas for future novels, but was forced to condense them all in this one. There are too many characters for any depth of plot, and much of the a [...]

    18. I loved this book and was quickly caught up in the story. Slow Moon Rising is the third book in the Cedar Key series and I enjoyed them all. Eva Marie creates characters I'd love to have as friends, puts them in difficult situations, and then lets them respond with honest emotions that we might all experience. I've heard this might be the last book in this series but I hope someone can talk Eva Marie into writing another one because I want to spend more time with the Claybourne family. I was exc [...]

    19. Does one really know the implications that secrets possess?Ross Claybourne, widower has four daughters Kimberly, Jayme-Leigh, Heather and Ami. His fate is approached with great thought and reasoning.Anise Kelly, owner of Calla Lilly, a floral shoppe specializing in the creation of equisite floral designs, is in search of that which holds no barrier, but what she finds is something quite different indeed.When a secret arises from the dusty memories the family is shaken. Will they surpass the chal [...]

    20. Love this author! Be careful when reading her work; you'll start reading and not think you are too involved, but when you are interrupted and have to go away from the book, you'll realize you are hooked! It is one of those quiet, peaceful things, sort of like a lazy afternoon. It is always a pleasure to read this author, but I gobble my treat up too quickly and am forced to wait patiently for the next one. I'm extra sad to finish this one because it is the end of the Cedar Key novels. They can a [...]

    21.

Slow Moon Rising may [...]

    22. This is the third and final book in the Cedar Key series. Oh boy! Definitely the best.I was glued to the pages to find out what happened to all of the characters. There were some twists and turns that I didn't see coming which made for an engrossing read.The author did an excellent job in wrapping up this series triggering some unexpected emotions both good and sad. I don't want to give away any details as this story is too good to ruin it for you.If you enjoy a family saga with romance and real [...]

    23. I have thoroughly enjoyed the Cedar Key series by Eva Marie Everson and this third book was such a marvelous way to bring it to a close. I'm just sad it's done.This family is so real and the issues that they deal with so raw. The theme of healing and second chances was so beautifully presented. This is the kind of book I would have recommended when I was a counselor. As I was reading it, I was already thinking of people I could and would be giving it to as a gift.I am so thankful that I was able [...]

    24. I liked this the least of the books in the series. Too many characters and moved too quickly through each story to really get an understanding of who each character was. If you read the first book, you at least had some background on the overall story and a deeper look at some of the characters like Kimberly and Heather otherwise the pace of this book only let you skim the surface of who each character was, their relationships within the family and what their individual stories were. I also thin [...]

    25. I enjoyed the first two books in the Cedar Key series and while this one took me awhile to get into, ultimately I liked it. I wasn't sure at first.Anise's perspective is the only one in first person. The chapters alternate between characters. The story took awhile to mesh and it finally did come together. As the oldest of four sisters, I appreciated the sisters' relationships. I could relate to the ups and downs and conflicts. I loved Anise. I loved her relationship with Ross. Slow Moon Rising i [...]

    26. It was sad to say good-bye to the characters in this seriesey seemed like friends. Eva Marie Everson did an amazing job of bringing this to a bitter sweet conclusion. It was hard putting this down. What an excellent job of bringing the (dare I say) Christian influence to a story that was compelling, interesting, and even thought provoking. Mrs. Everson is an excellent author and amazing story teller.

    27. I really enjoyed this series and am disappointed it is coming to an end. I think there is still more to tell about the Claybourne family.This book spanned several years in the lives of four sisters, their father and step-mother. It addressed their secrets and the problems associated with keeping secrets. It wrapped up the stories told in the previous two books. I'm not sure if I'll read other books by this author, but I really enjoyed this series mostly because I really like Cedar Key.
