Picking up where volume 1 left off, volume 2 leads chapters off with letters teenage Maggie wrote to Cash and Luc the first year they were gone. I actually liked her teenage perspective. It showed Maggie’s faith and loyalty to the two, while showing her emotional growth in handling the situation and dealing with her own insecurities.

In the present day, Maggie...gracious, but I don’t know how she’s missed Luc when he’s been in front of her all along!!! Everyone, including her unwelcomin

Luc, Cash and Maggie’s story continues with letters from the past, written with the emotional perspective of a teen in love, lost and grieving for the answers she didn’t have.

Sometimes young love blinds us to the reality of true love and the older trio are still wrapped up in their pasts. From Cash’s behavior that leads us to think we are not getting the full story, to Luc’s undying loyalty to both of his friends to Maggie’s failure to see through her adult eyes and heart, I vacillated between t

In this installment, the story of Luc, Cash and Maggie continues with the addition Maggie's letters to Luc and Cash at the start of each of the chapters told from their POV. It continues to be an emotional tale filled with intrigue as well as continued mystery around events of the past. This story continues to still have to slow build as the trio continue with their friendship as well as struggle with their feelings. I can't wait to see where the story goes in the last installment as I continue ...more

Emotional and heart wrenching...this second volume requires tissues. The push and pull of Cash's feelings for Maggie make you dizzy. Maggie's forever forgiveness for Cash is questionable. Luc's solid presence and loyalty to his two friends is admirable. Each one of them is hurting and at times it is tough to push past. There are some suggestions or foreshadowing that make me a bit anxious because right now I'm desperate for everything to be put to rights and everyone is happy. I'm jumping right ...more

OMG how will this end! The tension is too much! Will Maggie, Luc and Chad finally succeed in their quest to see the Sheriff and Rick punished for their crimes. What will the future hold for Chad? And what an ending! I can’t wait to read the next book.

This is an amazing, addictive and beautifully written story with such detail and emotion. I absolutely loved this and highly recommend it to you.

Second in the In Moonlight and Memories contemporary romance series and revolving around a trio of friends in New Orleans and continues with the story that began in Volume One , 1.

This eARC was sent to me by the author and Limerence Publications LLC for an honest review.

My Take
It's a history that finds Maggie evolving in the present. A slow pace that's character-driven with a prose that is easy and natural, taking us back into history — Luc's, Maggie's, and Cash's.

Volume 2 picks up where Volume 1 left off. Maggie gives the guys all the letters she wrote them each day for the first year after they left. These three's relationship picks up where it left off ten years prior but its like they are stuck in the past.

Cash is out of control, he has let Maggie down time and again and is pushing her towards Luc but Maggie is still failing to see what is right in front of her. The sheriff has threatened Maggie and Luc with arrest in getting justice for his son's de

The story picks up immediately from where Volume One ended and there is absolutely no point in starting reading here, it really is one story across the entire trilogy and you'll be missing out big time if you don't start at the beginning. I absolutely loved the series though so I would highly recommend giving it a try, especially if you love character driven stories full of love, friendship and fantastic characters.

I received a copy of this series in exchange for an honest review which I have copied from my romance novel review blog:

In Moonlight and Memories was such an interesting, captivating read. It isn't the Julie Ann Walker we've come to know and love--hot, spicy, sultry, and filthy--but a gentler, softer side that's drawn out over three spectacular novels.

This is a hard novel to review without spoilers (which y'all know I'm strongly against), so I won't speak too much

WARNING this review is about to be evasive and may not make a whole lick of sense. My random rambles at its finest.

Shit is hitting the fan.

Part two in this trilogy is like nothing you'll ever see coming. This is NOT a standalone. History matters here. You need to know how it's got to this point in order to understand why it's at this point.

The three continue their epic journey with letters from the past. We get to see what love looked like though the words of a girl who loved and lost. It is

Wow! I seriously could not set this book down once I started reading. I can’t get enough of Maggie, Cash and Luc. The relationship between the three of them is so deep even after being separated for 10 years- Cash and Luc from Maggie. Volume 2 has Maggie giving a binder of letters she wrote to both Cash and Luc. She wrote them letters after they left because she didn’t get an explanation from them as to why they were leaving her. This was one of her coping mechanism. Each of Luc and Cash’s chapt ...more

What a great story!!!!! It is a total different story line from Julie Walker and I fell in love with the series. I have not read a book in a long time that made me laugh one minute, cry one minute and want to strangle someone the next. Luc, Cash and Maggie got ahold of my heart.

It is a story of three friends from New Orleans that is told from each person point of view. These books are a story of three friends that their lives changed the minute they all became friends. Even with being separated

The story picks up immediately where our previous book ended. And it is just as enchanting as the previous book. The suspense in this one, it grows, it builds, and it crashes down on us at the very end. We fall for our characters even more. Ache with them, and hurt with them. We feel their moments of joy, the times of hurt, and the confusion of attraction

Volume Two picks right up from where Volume One leaves off.

Every chapter in Cash or Luc’s point-of-view starts off with a letter from Maggie May. I thought that was a sweet touch of the authors. It gives insight to how Maggie was as a teenager, missing her two friends.

The past is quickly catching up with the trio. Even though the three have some dissension between them, they manage to band together to protect each other. They refuses to sacrifice the other. I admire that about the three.

A can’t put them down set of books. Volume Two the guys are back after 10 years of no contact whatsoever, even with Maggie’s countless attempts to reach out to both Cash and Luc. It’s clear early on the dynamics of their relationships have changed. Old secrets rear their ugly heads and new secrets are present. Their overall bond is still as tight, but as young responsible adults, life is more complicated. Hopes and heartbreaks are renewed. Ms. Walker creates an amazing visual of life in the “Big ...more

I'm really glad that I have all 3 of these books ready to read all in a row because really they are one giant book.

Things still aren't resolved between Maggie, Luc and Cash, but things are changing. I really want to know what is going on with Cash because he seems to be living like he's dying. I wonder if there is more going on with his head that he knows about, but is keeping from the other two to protect them.

Book 2 In moonlight and Memories picks up right where book 1 leaves off. This is a book that lets you explore New Orleans sites and traditions while continuing the friendship and love of Maggie, Luc and Cash. More insight into events from the past and hard looks within to discover real feelings. I have to say the feelings this story invokes were hard to let go of but definitely worth the read.

In Moonlight and Memories: Volume two by Julie Ann picks right up where volume one left off. We get to continue to learn more about the three main characters. This story will take all three books to tell. You will laugh, you will cry and you will become frustrated. It is a very emotion and enjoyable story full of love, friendship and wonderful characters. I must go read volume three now since volume two left me some cliffhangers.

This is a truly amazing love story! Be sure to pick up all 3 books because it’s one continuous story.
Cash, Luc and Maggie’s friendship will forever live in my heart. I loved these characters from the moment I met them.
Their friendship and love was a joy to watch grow.
Julie’s writing style is wonderful. Her Black Nights series is one of my favorites but she gave me another to love.
Pick these books up today!!

As the middle book it furthers the story. Makes you root for the characters to find their happiness and hate the villains of the story. By the end you realize that there is definitely an underlying plot going on between the main characters making you want to get to the last book so you can find out the ending.

This love triangle pulls on your heartstrings. I felt torn in different directions. How do you explain that you feel happy for someone, yet sad for them all at once? This story is gripping and even when you try and put the book down to do something else, you start thinking about what is going to happen next. Then you find yourself drawn back to the book because you just can’t wait to find out.

oh my! This just keeps getting better and better. I loved the mix of the letters from the past leading us to the future. Julie Ann Walker has outdone herself with these.

Thank heavens I have the next ready to go with the way that ended!

The second book in this series picks up right where it left off in the first. Whereas the first book more built up the backstory and their relationships, we get more into what happened that fateful night 10 years ago. This book, just like the last is beautifully written and tragic right down to its core. I love the relationships between Maggie, Luc, and Cash. They are fascinating and beautiful.

We’re immediately drawn back in to the extraordinary friendship that Cash, Luc and Maggie share.

These stories are so beautifully written! They find emotions within you that you didn’t even know were there!

Julie Ann Walker’s new series of books “In Moonlight and Memories” is a masterpiece. The set of three books is a love story to and about New Orleans. I always wanted to visit there and now I feel like I just did through reading her stories of the city and its people and customs. These books are also a love story about Maggie, Luc, and Cash. They first met in school and their love for each other carries them through adulthood. Luc and Cash disappear from Maggie’s life on the night of prom and don ...more

Years ago, the sheriff’s son went missing and with Cash and Luc back, the sheriff wants to pinpoint the blame on them. Even with an alibi, it appears the sheriff with Cash’s no good dad helping, will do anything to change them with murder.
As they three begin to relive their past, Maggie gives the men letters she write to them over the years, letters that written from her heart telling them how she felt, not understanding why they deserted her.
I shed some tears with Maggie and laughed with them

Still a sweet story of friendship and young love, but maturing with each page. Curious to see where twists lead. I want to hurry on to volume 3 to see how this ends, but feel like I need to digest all that has happened and chew over some of the details before proceeding. I probably won’t wait! I can’t stop thinking about story and want to see how it ends.
