Alison Kent seamlessly wove a tapestry of desperation, heartbreak, and tragedy. Beneath the Patchwork Moon is a realistic tale of young love, secrets, and second chances. The charisma and emotion ingrained within this reunion story is very impressive.

Luna Meadows is haunted, maybe even trapped, by her past. She has lived her entire life, sheltered, in the small town of Hope Springs. Ten years have passed since the accident that forever altered her reality and shaped her future. Determined to ho

I'm so sorry to say that I just didn't connect with this story. I found it to be very slow moving and unfortunately, I had the big secrets figured out about 20 pages in to the story. The writing felt a little forced on the emotional content...this was a very sad story, but the author really didn't make me feel for the characters. I felt like I got facts about the characters but they didn't feel like real people. Kristan Hannah wrote a tear-jerker about a car crash involving teenagers, Night Road ...more

I adore Alison Kent's gentle love stories, and this book did not disappoint. Beneath the Patchwork Moon is a poignant book about how Lily and Angelo struggled for a decade, each alone in their own way, following the tragic and somewhat mysterious death of her best friend and his younger sister. Ten years later, they help each other heal, and find bits of redemption in others from whom they've each been estranged. Beneath the Patchwork Moon is beautifully written, and makes a great bedtime story. ...more

2.5 This wasn't as good as the first book in this series. I found the characters quite distant and didn't really feel all that much for them. Sometimes it felt a bit angsty and annoying. I'll read the next one when it's out and hope it's a bit better.

I was disappointed in this book, the narration was terrible and the entire story dragged. Not what I was expecting after book 1 in this series.

This is the second book in the Hope Springs series.
It answers a lot of the questions left open from the first book.
Luna made a promise to her best friend before she died. And now, ten years later it’s finally time to break that promise and spill her friends secrets. For her own peace of mind, but also for the families involved. And for the first man she ever loved, Angelo, her best friends older brother.
This was a story filled with guilt, regret, sorrow and second chances.

Great read

Book two tells about Sierra and Oscar and the secret she has held for ten years. This book brings Angelo and Luna back together and the guilt both have stored up might fall away. You need to read this book to find out all the secrets.

Lies and truths and growing pains catch up and cause a very entertaining read about the interactions between people who are striving to overcome the past and find the future they seek.

Even better than the first one. Luna and Angelo are wonderful, the story is bright and warm and creative. Loved it. And immediately bought the third.

I love how the author decided to give each of these character's their own story. I was so sad to see Kaylie and Ten's story go but I get to follow their story through the other books!

Beneath the patchwork moon

Just so touching to read another part of this series.cant wait to continue to the next part of this fabulous series.
This was a disappointment after the first book. Far too much unrealistic emotion in there, and the "mystery" was pretty easy to figure out. Just didn't connect with the characters

I feel the same about this book as I did the first in the series, it was interesting and I liked it, but I do feel like the ending was super rushed.

Secrets revealed

Book 2 answers some of the mysteries hinted at in book 1. Luna's character is revealed in depth and you are introduced to Angelo, brother of Luna's friend Sierra. There are still paths to explore. I'm looking forward to Book 3.

Alison Kent's Beneath the Patchwork Moon is an emotional and poignant novel of new beginnings for both Luna Meadows and Angelo Caffey. Although she has a thriving business, Luna has not quite moved on from the accident that took the life of her close high school friend, Sierra Caffey. On the ten year anniversary of Sierra's death, Luna is finally making positive changes to her life, but with the return of her first love (and Sierra's brother) Angelo, will painful memories of their failed romance ...more

I've been looking forward to this one since I read The Second Chance Cafe and first met Luna. She's an interesting character and I knew her backstory would be interesting.

Luna is embarking on a new phase in her life where she is moving out on her own and starting a center to help those with artistic talents but that don't have money to completely pursue them. She's driven by the loss of her best friend which not only left her an emotional wreck but left her with major physical injuries to hea

“There are some things in life we never get over, or make peace with. They’re just there, a part of us. They make us who we are.” - Julietta Meadows

Ten years ago on a sunny Sunday evening two accidents changed the lives of Luna Meadows, Sierra Caffey, Oscar Gatlin and their families forever. Sierra died and Oscar was left in a permanent vegetative state. Luna was the lone survivor, but she didn't walk away. Yes, she suffered a broken hip, but the e

Secrets rarely remain that way for very long. Eventually a slip here, a heart too heavy there or a guilt held close for too long even further down the road of time. Sooner or later secrets will demand to be told. And when they are finally released what happens to the lives of those who had promised to keep those secrets. They wither and die or open up and bloom.

Luna had been holding onto secrets for ten years, and her heart was indeed very heavy. Today, on the

I saw this book on NetGalley and decided to give it a go. I had not heard of Alison Kent before, although I didn’t see great difficulty jumping in with the second book in the series.

Hope Springs is a small town in Texas, and everyone seems to know everyone else. Luna is a designer, crafting scarves for sale, and has built quite a good reputation for her work. A life-long resident of this little town, she is often mired in her own head, and quite uncomfortable with her own past. She’s just purch

I had read and reviewed Alison Kent's first book in The Hope Springs series, The Second Chance Cafe, a while back (see here) and was looking forward to reading more about this town! I have to admit, I thought (hoped) Indy would be up next, but maybe next time??

Beneath the Patchwork Moon in Luna's story, and I had a hunch it would be a dramatic, based on how we saw Luna in the first book. I was so very right. There is a lot of angst and emotion as Luna figures out how to move on after a very diff

Although Kaylie Flynn and Tennessee Keller, the heroine and hero of The Second Chance Café, the first book in Kent’s Hope Springs series, appear in this second book, Beneath a Patchwork Moon can easily be read as a standalone. The focus is clearly on the tangled relationship of Luna and Angelo, two complex, creative characters unable either to let go of the past or to make peace with it. Setting is less important in this second book than it was in the first, although there are enough details suc ...more

I didn't decide what I wanted to be when I grew up until I was thirty years old - and then sold my first book at thirty-four. Still, it was obvious that I always knew I was going places.
