Visit Bloo Moose With Me

If you stopped by Tuesday you had a chance to meet author Jemi Fraser as she talked about her new series, Bloo Moose, and the first three books in the series that just released this week. Today I’m sharing on thoughts on those three stories.

I’ll share the synopsis of each and then my thoughts.


            After a childhood spent in hospitals and foster homes, Myla’s freelance adventure writing suits her perfectly. A couple of weeks trying out new things then move on. Now, if she can only get her guide to all things winter interested in helping her lose her V-card.
            Sawyer’s lost his parents, his SEAL team, and his legendary Spidey senses. Now he’s faced with a sexy, secretive woman who makes him want things he has no business wanting.
            When someone starts butchering the wolves Sawyer is trying to reintegrate, he ends up in the bush with Sexy City Girl whose titanium attitude is more than enough to compensate for her weak leg.
 If Sawyer and Myla can’t learn to trust each other and themselves, they might not make it out alive.

My thoughts….

This is an enduring story in many ways but especially in the fact the main female character isn’t perfect. The story is filled with determination, courage, and hope, along with laughs, romance, mystery, and a dash of suspense.

The author draws the reader into the characters’ world with a vivid description of the town and the surrounding area. You feel the elements of winter as the author takes you along on Myla and Sawyer’s trek into the wilderness. The characters come alive with their quirky ways making them feel like old friends. The chemistry between the two main characters works realistically and can be felt through their actions.

The story flows smoothly and at a good pace. The twists and turns will keep you guessing and hoping as the story unfolds. From the first page to the last, it’s hard to put the story down until all your questions and hopes are answered. Only then can you leave Bloo Moose with a smile and eagerness to return for the next heartfelt romance.

REACHING FOR NORMAL is the start of a fascinating series that will draw readers back to Bloo Moose time and time again.


            Darby Banks’ yearly Reno List for her B&B is legendary. When her octogenarian guests give her fashion advice, she realizes she needs a renovation of her own. So along with fixing toilets and painting walls, she decides to buy some sexy lingerie and learn to flirt. If only her Risk List didn’t terrify her as much as the reason she’s been hiding in plain sight.
            Quinn Charters has turned CharterGear Sporting Goods into a thriving business to spite his family. When they start contacting him with demands he wonders if its time to leave town. But there’s a certain B&B owner who makes him want to stay. If only he could figure out why she’s so wary around him.
            An accident that damages Quinn’s store has him staying at Darby’s B&B and helping out with the renovations. And wondering what sexy secret is hidden in that renovation notebook of hers. When Quinn’s brother appears to strong-arm him into helping out the family business, Darby’s anxiety jumps and Quinn digs deep to discover the cause.
            Darby should have added Stay Alive to her Risk List.

My thoughts….

A charming B&B ran by a sassy proprietor in a quaint small town is the ideal setting for the enjoyable read the author has created in REACHING FOR RISK.

The colorful description of the town and its people draw you in making you wish you could visit Bloo Moose in person. All the characters are lively and entertaining with the main core of characters reminding you of people you know or would like to know. With the main characters you have the ones you are pulling for and the ones you’d love to do bodily harm to.

The author gives you all the elements of a delightful and engaging story – laughter, suspense, a dash of mystery, wholesome fun, family, and especially romance. The story moves at a steady pace and holds your attention from beginning to end. If you’re a list making, you’ll especially want to find out about Darby’s Risk List.

The second installment in the Bloo Moose series, this story can be read on its own but will have you wanting to know about the lives of others in the town. It’s a fun read with great characters and a terrific setting.


Love Means Nothing in tennis, but Kami chooses it as a tattoo after her heart is shattered. Her mom’s death and a car crash that causes a career-ending injury make everything worse. Tired of the heartache, Kami decides it’s time to channel the dream she and her mom created. It’s time to open Kami’s Kamp, a tennis school for kids.
            Being patient is a vital skill for Rayce LaChance. As a contractor and furniture maker, he knows that rushed decisions never pan out. Especially not in his personal life. When he broke up with Kami, he thought he was freeing her to pursue her career unhindered. Now, Kami’s back in town and proving the Ice Queen reputation she earned on the court carries over into her daily life.
            When an obsessed fan becomes threatening, Rayce proves he’ll do anything to help, but Kami isn’t sure her heart is up to the risk.
            They’ll both have to take chances if they’re going to find out if Love Means Nothing or Everything.

My thoughts….

You don’t have to even like tennis to fall in love with the characters, setting, and storyline in REACHING FOR EVERYTHING.

Kami is vulnerable but determined and a fighter all the way. Rayce is strong and independent with a soft heart. The other characters, the good ones as opposed to mean, are ones you want to get to know even better. The author makes the main characters’ struggles and emotions come off the page as you follow their journey to reconnect. The story is both heartbreaking and heartwarming with a little heart stopping mixed in.

The story moves at a good pace mixing the focus on the characters as well as the setting holding your attention all the way. The author weaves mystery and suspense into this tantalizing reunion of former lovers. The couple’s back-and-forth attraction adds depth to the story.

This third installment in the Bloo Moose series can be read on its own but is much more enjoyable read in order of the series. Following the series, you will reconnect with characters you’ve already come to love.

This is a captivating story that will keep you hooked from the first paragraph to the last line.

Thanks everyone for stopping by today. I hope you’ll pick up at least one or all of these fascinating stories. Do you enjoy characters that have flaws? Do you feel it makes them more realistic? Have you read any of the Bloo Moose series yet?
