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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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. Our author has a brilliant talent of letting us feel all the emotions going on inside each of these fri ...more

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.

The BKI books are probably my favorite series so when I had a chance to review this Trilogy by Julie Ann Walker I jumped on it. I was a bit apprehensive when I received the books and read the synopsis and realized this was a totally different type of book. All I can say is WOW - what an emotional ride. I loved and hated them at the same time. Great read!! Would give higher stars if possible.

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.

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

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.

It starts with Maggie remembe

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

Volume 2 picks up with a letter from Maggie to Cash. The feelings and thoughts of the characters are expressed in Maggie’s letters and the memories that they bring up for men. The friendship these three characters have is complicated and yet comfortable. The ending leaves no doubt that you will be reading Volume 3 immediately!

I was glad to see this picks up right where book 1 leaves off. I love Luc even more here! There is a bit more tension between Maggie and Cash, but it is necessary for them to work through. I also really liked Maggie's letters, which give more insight into the past. I really like Maggie and feel for what she went through, but it can be frustrating when she gets to blinded. It does seem that is starting to change, which is great. The ending, as usual, is a gripping cliffhanger so I can't wait for ...more

The second in this series continues the story of Luc, Maggie, and Cash. In this one, you get more of the complex relationships between the three, as well as Cash's father, Luc's mother, and Maggie's sister and aunts.

You also start to understand that these three have some secrets that have been haunting them, and have impacted their relationships with each other, and their families.

This one picks up right where volume 1 ends. The story gets more complex and intriguing. So much going on with Luc, Cash and Maggie. Really looking forward to seeing how this story wraps up. Very well written and easy to follow.

In Moonlight and Memories Volume Two picks up right where Volume One left us, smack in the middle of the angsts relationship between Maggie, Cash and Luc. Maggie has given the men letters that she wrote the first year after they left in the military and the chapters are interspersed with her teenage thoughts and memories. Cash returned from the military with a traumatic brain injury and is working on his own issues. Luc is caught in the middle. In the meantime, the men’s return has stirred up an ...more

Cash is spiralling with his head injury and Maggie is clueless. Altho she does open her eyes as the story evolves. It’s a compelling story and hard to read at times, you want to shout at them what’s staring them in the face! Jeez I had to keep reading but boy thank goodness I had bk3 ready.

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

Volume Two of In Moonlight and Memories explores this idea and more, zeroing in on how our everyday choices, especially those compounded over time, change lives--our own and those of our loved ones. Maggie, Luc, and Cash are still struggling to put right the injustices compounded over the past ten years and still loving each other fiercely, but ...more

As I stated in my review of In Moonlight and Memories Volume One I LOVE the covers of this series. Absolutely beautiful.

After struggling with the first book, I was hoping this one would be better.....but it was about the same for me.
The pace still dragged for me, and I kept waiting and WAITING for something to actually happen and draw me in.
Cash hasn't done anything to redeem himself in my eyes. Again, I realize he is suffering many things, but I can't recall any truly redeeming moments in his

The second volume of this epic tale continues to weave the mystery surrounding the young lives of these three friends and the consequences they could face as adults.

They have re-established their unbreakable bond and work together to try to remove the predators who are determined to break them.

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
