I really hate when books show up too late for book tours, but that’s the case this week for the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance tour for Once in a Blue Moon. I’d requested this novel because I’d enjoyed a previous book by author Leanna Ellis and fully expect to like this one, too.
What is Once in a Blue Moon about? You may read the first chapter HERE, and here’s the official blurb:
Bryn Seymour was nine years old when her mother died under mysterious circumstances on the same day Apollo 11 made its historic lunar landing. Forty years laterâ€”divorced, working as an obituary writer, and duly cynicalâ€”she meets Howard, a conspiracy theorist who knew her mom and believes a small Texas town may hold clues to what really fueled her demise. Seeking closure, Bryn goes along for this men-in-black ride. But upon meeting Howardâ€™s son Sam, an outspoken Christian, she canâ€™t decide whose beliefs are more pie-in-the-sky.
The gravity of life has pulled Bryn down for decades. But a perfect love could be her first step to soaring. It only happens once in a blue moon.

I was thinking the same thing except I've never read any books by Leanna Ellis before so I was eagerly anticipating this one. Oh well! I'll get to it eventually.
Patricia, I picked up Ruby's Slippers at conference in September. I love all things Oz, so was interested to see Leanna's take on it. Great fun!
Leanna Ellis says
Hi, Valerie! Thanks so much for showcasing Once in a Blue Moon here! I'm sorry you didn't get a copy of the book early enough to review it. If you still don't have a copy, email me and I'll make sure you get one.
They did say in the CFBA newsletter that they'd been a bit late going out. Then factor in getting all the way to Canada, and it just didn't make it on time. I'm sure it's on its way and I'm looking forward to the read 🙂
Leanna Ellis says
Oh, yeah, it always takes a bit longer to get over the border, doesn't it? Still, if it doesn't show up, let me know. Sorry they were late going out. Didn't know about that. Glad you enjoyed Ruby's Slippers though! Hopefully Once in a Blue Moon will get there soon and the wait will have been worth it. 😉
Thanks, Leanna! I'm sure it will be here any day now. As for Ruby's Slippers, I was amused by how 'Wizard of Oz' it was–and yet it totally stood on its own as a story. Terrific job blending the two!
