“Beneath the harvest moon…
true love can bloom.”
A single dad, who’s in over his head, and an event planner running from her past, are drawn together on charming Bluestar Island by a determined seven-year-old and her escape-artist goat.
Event planner, Charlotte “Aster” Smith, has fled the only life she has ever known. The situation has left her questioning her own judgment as she cautiously tries to create a new life for herself on Bluestar Island. Taking the job of event coordinator for the small town is a step in the right direction. The only problem is it’s currently a part-time position, but the mayor suggests with additional funding the position could transform into a full-time job. In the meantime, she needs a second job in order to stay financially afloat.
Farmer and single father, Sam Bell, is struggling to keep his aging farm from going bankrupt while raising his young daughter. And now that his daughter’s babysitter is heading off to college, he needs help. So when he finds Aster is in need of work, he thinks his problems are solved. But things aren’t always what they seem. And he can’t help wondering what Aster is keeping from him.
In the lingering rays of a Bluestar Island sunset, Sam and Aster find themselves dancing upon the sand. As they help each other heal, the possibility of a future together becomes tangible. But will the ghosts from their pasts extinguish this budding romance?
Includes a delicious recipe for Aster’s Amazing Apple Cobbler!

Aster drove the flamingo-pink golf cart out of town on a windy road that swept toward the coastline and then zig-zagged back inland. It was a very picturesque ride with the lush green foliage and glimpses of the ocean. It was her first time exploring beyond the town limits. She wondered how long it would take to reach the end of the island.
That thought didn’t have a chance to take hold as she slowed to a stop next to an adorable mailbox that was painted with white and black spots just like a cow. She smiled. Her stop was 913 Sea Glass Drive.
She stared down the dirt lane. She could barely make out the roofline of a house but not much else. She’d been warned that you couldn’t see all of the farm from the road.
She turned the golf cart down the lane. The ruts made the ride bouncy. Aster tightened her hold on the steering wheel. She clamped her jaw together to keep her teeth from rattling.
Surely it couldn’t be far. And she was right. Soon the rest of the farmhouse came into sight.
The two-story white home with red shutters wasn’t anything special, and yet she couldn’t help but think how homey it looked with two white wicker chairs on the front porch. Or perhaps that was just the way she wanted to see it. After running for her life, she was seeing things differently.
Just then an old truck drove around the house. It was robin egg blue, and Aster did a double-take at seeing a pickup on the island. Someone was being a rule breaker. Interesting.
The truck pulled to a stop and the driver got out. He was tall and thin. His short hair was covered with a blue and white ball cap. She got out of the golf cart and approached him.
As he drew nearer, she recognized him. Oh no! ”It’s you.”
His eyebrows rose. ”Don’t tell me you’re having golf cart problems again.”
Heat swirled in her chest and rushed to her cheeks. ”No. Uh… Thank you for helping me yesterday.”
