“Such a grumpy swoon!” — Jennifer K.

“It’s the Hallmark Christmas movie that my husband actually wouldn’t make fun of because it feels like it could actually happen.” — Emily H.

“This ‘book’ prevented the female food giver from showering me with attention. I would put it in my litter box if I had opposable thumbs.” — Cleo the Cat

Lucy’s new release, the Mistletoe Kisser, is live and burning up the charts! This was originally a short story included in a holiday anthology in 2019, Lucy then added another 75,000 words and made it into the Blue Moon Winter Solstice and Multicultural Holiday Celebration. It’s a warm holiday hug from Lucy to her readers. And at this writing, it’s currently hanging out in the top ten on Amazon, which is unheard of for book 8 in a series. But don’t be alarmed by the #8 in a series thing, Lucy wrote this to be read as a stand-alone. You will meet the whole Blue Moon gang, but they aren’t integral to the storyline, so grab it today at the release price of $2.99!

“Just because I don’t run around with a stupid grin on my face all day every day doesn’t mean I’m grumpy.”

Ryan Sosa, grumpy former corporate accountant, has had it up to here with surprises. He didn’t see getting fired coming. And he certainly didn’t anticipate flying across the country to the world’s hippie-est, happiest, most annoying town to save his great-uncle from some mysterious emergency.

Not only is there actual snow on the ground, it also appears that elves on psychedelics have decked Blue Moon’s halls. But he doesn’t have time to be snarky about the impending Winter Solstice and Multicultural Holiday Celebration—whatever the hell that is. Not when he’s got a farm to save, a free-range sheep that he may or may not have nudged with his stupid microscopic rental car, and some small-town veterinarian telling him she can’t take the animal off his hands.

Dr. Sammy Ames has a practice to manage and a fundraising crisis to attend to. She doesn’t have time to deal with a big-city grouch who doesn’t remember being her first kiss ever. Especially not since he wants to dump a sheep named Stan on her. So not happening. No matter how cute—and pantless—Ryan is when he’s drunk.

Besides, as soon as he solves his uncle’s problem, he’ll be on the first flight out of Blue Moon, never to return again.
It will take a Winter Solstice Miracle or perhaps some matchmaking interference from the Beautification Committee to get these two to see eye-to-eye under the mistletoe…unless he’s the wrong Ryan after all.


Here’s the teensiest little snippet of the Blue Moon fun you’re about to find yourself in the midst of…

That was exactly what Dr. Sammy Ames was looking for. A small-town good guy who threw flour during completely unrealistic cookie baking fights. Growly and grumpy would never be the star of one of those stories. Besides, Ryan was too practical to throw flour. It took forever to clean up.

A little background on The Mistletoe Kisser; this was released in December of 2019 (ah, those were the days) as a short story in a holiday anthology featuring Sammy the vet from Blue Moon Bend! Lucy decided to freshen it up and release it as a novella in December of 2020. Once she started digging into it, though, she quickly realized she was nowhere near ready to be done with Blue Moon. It’s now over 70,000 words and she’s not done yet! She loves it, and from the snippets she’s shared with me, I love it, too! I can’t wait for you to read it! Blue Moon, here we come, just in time for winter solstice, Blue Moon style!

Some of my personal favorite moments from this hippie, happy small-town series are:

  • Goat attacks
  • Higgenworth Communal Alternative Education Day Care
  • Fitz stripping for Phoebe’s bachelorette party
  • The astrological apocalypse
  • The Pierce brothers meeting Franklin when he climbs out of their mother’s bedroom window
  • Every town meeting with Bruce Oakleigh
  • Niko wrestling pigs
  • Book Club
  • Aurora’s makeovers on the Pierce brothers

INTENSE AUTHOR’S NOTE: Remember, if you haven’t read the series DO NOT start with Where It All Began. Or I will show up at your house—wearing a face mask, of course—and use a long, sanitized stick to lovingly slap your Kindle out of your hands.

SAD PANDA NOTE: I’m bummed that readers without US and UK Amazon accounts miss out on the Kindle Countdown sales. Hopefully, Amazon changes the sale capabilities for other international markets soon! ❤️ 

“But, but, but the books are numbered!” — Imaginary Reader

You are correct! The hilarious and amazing Blue Moon series chock full of small-town romcom zaniness is numbered. However, there’s this sneaky little book called Where It All Began. It’s the prequel to the series and it tells the story of John and Phoebe Pierce.

If you’re new to the series that means absolutely nothing to you. But trust me. I’m protecting you here! Do NOT begin with Where It All Began. I forbid it.

You’re going to make me say it, aren’t you? Fine. In the main Blue Moon series, John Pierce, the family patriarch is… no longer alive. So you can imagine be-bopping into this romantic comedy series and trying to read Where It All Began first and then curling up on your living room floor sobbing “Why, Lucy? Why???” And then never reading any of the rest of the books.

I’m not even going to get into how I didn’t want to write the book in the first place. Yes, I am. This is how it went:

Readers: We really want John and Phoebe’s story.

Me: Ha! That’s hilarious. John is dead. I can’t write a romance novel where one of the main characters DIES.

Readers: Yes you can. Now go do it.

Me: Well, I’ll show you what a hot mess this will be. *starts writing* *instantly falls in love with John* *curses self and readers* *writes romance novel in which main character dies* *sobs uncontrollably throughout*

Look, I’m really glad I listened to you readers and wrote it anyway because I honestly think it’s one of my best books. And we get to go back to the 1980s in that hippie dippy little town. And meet tiny Carter, Beckett, and Jax! And we find out where Clementine came from! However, I do think new readers need a stern warning to NOT read the prequel first. So without further ado… (what is an ado anyway?)

The Official Lucy-Approved Reading Order of Blue Moon:

  1. No More Secrets
  2. Fall Into Temptation
  3. The Last Second Chance
  4. Not Part of the Plan
  5. Where It All Began, The Prequel
  6. Holding on to Chaos
  7. The Fine Art of Faking It

Boring Fine Print: Should you decide to buck the rules and read Where It All Began too early in the series, the author wilst showeth upeth at your house and slap your Kindle out of your hand. And then probably ask to use your restroom, depending on how far away from her you live.

Welcome back to Blue Moon, my friends! Holding on to Chaos, #5 in the Blue Moon series, hit Amazon and promptly sent readers into a world with a hot sheriff, nosy neighbors, a fibbing heroine, and an already crazy town being made crazier by an astrological apocalypse (I don’t know where I come up with these ideas either!).

Haven’t read it yet? Don’t worry, it’s a whole lot better than I just made it sound. This is the funniest book I’ve written to-date. Donovan Cardona has his hands full when he decides to fall in love. But how can he score that first date with Eva Merill, the secretive youngest sister of Gia and Emma, when the entire town is losing its damn mind?

I laughed out loud every day writing this story. All of your favorite Blue Moon characters are back in this latest standalone installment. And Ellery? Oh, dear, sweet Goth princess Ellery gets quite the storyline in this book. Clementine? Of course she’s present. Do you think she’s mellowed or is she still a savage attack goat after cookies?

If you haven’t picked up a copy of Holding on to Chaos, grab it now. You won’t regret it (said the author who’s totally biased). Free on Kindle Unlimited!
