    One thought on “Blue Moon”

    1. Blue Moon by Wendy Corsi Staub is a 2016 William Morrow publication. I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. As the one- hundred- year anniversary of the “Sleeping Beauty Killer’ murders approaches, Mundy’s Landing is gearing up for the annual 'Mundypalooza', where amateur sleuths and crime enthusiast flood into the community determined to solve the cold case. If someone actually does solve the century old murder, there will be a [...]

    2. I read all of Wendy Corsi Staub's thrillers because she does domestic suspense that is similar to Mary Higgins Clark: sort of like a cozy but with more blood. I don't have to worry about the protagonist being offed or that the sweet kid will end up as roadkill. There's something comforting in this type of book. However, this one did not work for me. I never warmed to Annabelle and she seemed like someone I would actively avoid even being in the same room with for fear that she might talk to me. [...]

    3. Once in a Blue Moon I first started reading books by Wendy Corsi Staub over 20 years ago when she first published. Her stories are always suspenseful and characters believable. Blue Moon is about a series of murders, back in the late 1890's and left the bodies of his victims in three separate houses known as The Murder Houses and recreated in present day buy a deranged killer.We have two serial killers, one who killed three times to cover up the first one and the second known a copycat , just be [...]

    4. Chaos descends on Mundy’s Landing.Annabelle starts to wonder if buying one of the notorious Murder houses was such a good idea. Sure, it was cheap, but with a socially challenged son and all of the lookie loos gathering outside, it’s not such a good deal.One hundred years ago, three young girls, the Sleeping beauties, were murdered. Their bodies dressed in white nightgowns, arms crossed, and left in three different houses. They didn’t live in them. In fact, their identities were never disc [...]

    5. Mundy's Landing is famous for the murders that occurred years ago. Three girls were found dead in three different houses and the murderer was never found. The houses came to be known as the Murder Houses.Even though they had second thoughts about purchasing a "Murder House" they went ahead and bought the house. Annabelle Bingham and her husband Trib were thrilled with all the room the house provided for the couple and their son Oliver. The couple felt they could put the bad memories of the house [...]

    6. This is the first book I've read by Staub and it won't be the last. Be prepared to give a few days for reading as the book is long but very engaging. It would make a good beach or vacation novel. Just don't read it right before you go to bed.The plot is a little complex. There had been three murders one hundred years ago in Mundy's Landing. The victims had remained unidentified and the killer never captured. This novel centers around a couple buying one of the houses where one of the murdered yo [...]

    7. For a hot minute, I almost fell for one of the red-herrings but twenty pages later I realized I was wrong. Otherwise, this was pretty meh.The "historical" aspect was a journal filled with 19th/20th century poetry. Does the SBK dare disturb the universe? He and Prufrock are equally uninteresting.The main characters have no heat.The big city cops with "sparks" remain unsparkyEVER, the cat-loving octagenarian spinster lived and so did her cat. WIN. This is the 2nd Staub novel I've read in which I w [...]

    8. Wendy Corsi Staub brings us back to Mundy's Landing, in the second installment of her Mundy's Landing series. If you enjoy eccentric & colorful characters then take a trip to your local bookseller today. Some of the characters from the first book in the series, "Blood Red," have made their return in Blue Moon. They are more of secondary characters but ones you will recognize. The new characters are delightful in getting to know. What I like about returning characters is the familiarity it br [...]

    9. This book was hard to get into and stay interested. I gave up barely a quarter of the way in because nothing was happening. It did not hold my interest. I hate giving low ratings, but I really didn't like this book.

    10. This is the WCS story that I have come to know and love. I read this one so fast because I just couldn't put it down. The SBK murders were so interesting and I had no idea who was behind them until the end -- I did have a feeling that (view spoiler)[ Officer Ryan Greenlea was behind the new murders though. Fascinating to learn that George Purcell was the original SBK and his wife Florence had a baby with his father. The baby was named Zelda and they locked her in a room in the attic because Geor [...]

    11. This book really held my attention! It's the second of a trilogy, although it's great as a stand alone read. I loved it so much that I've got the other two on order. Looking forward to reading more by this author!

    12. This is apparently part of a trilogy. I didn't read the first one but I don't know if it was necessary. I do feel like I need to read the third so I can get some final answers from this one though.

    13. Wendy Corsi Staub in her new book, “Blue Moon” Book Two in the Mundy’s Landing series published by William Morrow gives us another adventure at Mundy’s Landing.From the back cover: New York Times bestselling author Wendy Corsi Staub returns to Mundy’s Landing—a small town where bygone bloodshed has become big business.Hair neatly braided, hands serenely clasped, eyes closed, the young woman appeared to be sound asleep. But the peaceful tableau was a madman’s handiwork. Beneath the [...]

    14. Warning…once started, be prepared to read this book through the night! And maybe read it when you aren’t alone!! It’s a chilling psychological, white knuckle read!It is the 2nd in the Mundy’s Landing series but easily read as a stand alone. It’s a mystery wrapped in a mystery from a century past.Ms. Staub tells a story where visuals will have you reeling and feeling that you are a bystander looking on. Characters of Mundy’s Landing are quirky, conventional, eccentric, some unstable a [...]

    15. Blue Moon by Wendy Corsi Staub is Book II in the Mundy’s Landing Series. I have not read Blood Red, Book I, but I don’t feel it affected the reading of Blue Moon, though now I want to read Blood Red too. A map is included to help in picturing the town and I love maps.I love to read books like Blue Moon because I am curious about the villain…his motive, his reasoning. How does his mind work? How is he capable of such heinous crimes? Blue Moon reads like a Criminal Minds episode and that is [...]

    16. In the summer of 1916, three murders occurred in Mundy’s Landing. In each, a murdered young woman was placed and posed in the bedroom of a home not her own. None of the inhabitants knew the victims. Now, 100 years later, it is time for the annual Mundypalooza when gawkers come to look at the houses where the victims were found and try to solve the mystery of who committed the murders which have never been solved. One hundred years to the day after the original murders were committed, another m [...]

    17. Really enjoyed this second book in the Mundy series; however, I think you should read book one before starting this one. The Sleeping Beauty murders from over 100 years ago have still not been solved. A murderer killed three girls and placed them in the beds of three different strangers to be found later. The girls were never identified and the murders have been a part of Mundy's Landing history. Every year they have a "celebration" and offer a reward for anyone who can solve the murders. This b [...]

    18. Well written mystery that pulls together events from two different periods of time. Annabelle is a complicated character who is doing the best she can with lots of issues- and you'll both worry about and root for her. I had not read the first book, which I think might have added to my enjoyment of this one but no matter-this is a quick read that pulls you in, albeit it a bit slowly in my case, but keeps you reading. I've read Staub before; she's a reliable writer with a good easy going style. Th [...]

    19. I love Wendy's books. She is a wonderful suspense writer. I do, however, wish she hadn't included one instance of taking God's name in vain. It wasn't necessary.

    20. Most series books follow a character, this series follows a town. The characters fluctuate and the main ones in book one are side characters in book two. This really works well and allows the author the freedom to create new and interesting stories, like this one that centers around a 100 year old Sleeping Beauty Murder case that is about to be copycatted. Here's my full review:mysteryplayground/2016

    21. I loved it!!!Wendy Corsi Staub never fails when it comes to writing a book that will keep you intrigued all the way till the end. I always look forward to reading her books and can't wait until the next one comes out!If you're looking for a great mystery with plot twists galore, look no further!

    22. Great book. Could not put this one down. Love the setting, the mystic of solving 100 year old murders. I was very surprised at the ending. Enjoyed this book immensely. Wonderful page turner. me interested through out. Can't wait for the next installment of this series.

    23. Book two in Mundys Landing. More ghosts and murder, strange goings on and a very sick person , makes this a fun book. I liked it. Lori
