Over the Moon at the Big Lizard Diner
by Lisa Wingate
As I was catching up on my reviews a few days ago I felt I had more to write about and sure enough, I found another book I had read without taking time to review it. I think this may be the last of the missing reviews, but I could be wrong.
I've read Lisa Wingate before, Tending Roses, and was just so-so about the book. But I was willing to give her another try when I saw this book at the Cincinnati Public Library book sale. I'm glad I did. It's a light read, chic lit to be sure, with a mystery to be solved. I love this kind of story that requires little brain power on my part but keeps me entertained.
Lindsey Attwood is a paleontologist and a single mom. She accepts an assignment on a ranch to find out who has stolen some ancient artifacts. She is soon involved with an outlaw humongous white dog, a horse that hates her and a very attractive rancher. Of course there is romance and misunderstandings to conquer.
I will be more than happy to read another of Ms. Wingate's novels. Of course my reading list in the meantime has continued growing and growing so it may be a while before I get to read her again.
