In Moonlight and Memories: Volume Two Julie Ann Walker Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Julie Ann Walker comes an epic story about sacrifice, friendship, and the awe-inspiring power of love.
Maggie: Ten years ago, Cash Armstrong stole my heart. Then he promptly joined the army—dragging my best friend with him—and left me crying on the front porch in a red sequined prom dress. Now he's back. They're both back. Cash, the one who still has my heart. And Luc, the one who saved my life.
Cash: How do you know if you’re at the end of the beginning or the beginning of the end? That's what I've been trying to figure out since a traumatic brain injury made me "unfit to serve." I'm back in New Orleans, and picking up the shattered pieces of my past means I must confront where my life's journey began... and where it all might end.
Luc: Long ago, Maggie May was mine. Not mine in the way you might think. She was mine because she was my only friend. Then Cash came along and we became brothers by something stronger than blood. We became brothers by choice. When tragedy struck, I was forced to make a decision that changed all our lives. I thought, after ten years, it was safe to come back home. I was wrong...

User reviews about this book
Personal and amazing
The history of the characters of this book is amazing. I've enjoyed reading the letters to Cash and Luc that Maggie wrote that are featured in this volume. I still have so many questions, but I'm enjoying the journey. They've had some interesting and fun adventures, some trying moments, plus old love and new love. FYI - this volume ends on a cliffhanger so be prepared to gasp and gape like a fish out of water. I'm writing this review as I'm dying to start the final volume to see what happens.
Second in a fabulous, heart-wrenching new series
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 old unsolved crime and the police chief is gunning for them. I don’t normally go for the really emotional reads, but I could not put these books down.
I received an ARC from the author for an honest review.
Meant to be read together
First, I want to be clear, the three volumes must be read together to get the “whole” story. They will tug your heart strings, you will alternately love and hate the three main characters but the story, oh, the story. It’s all about The Plan. And once you understand, oh how you will feel the love. Lots of feels in these three books. I read them once, then read them again, to see what I missed once I knew. Enjoy!
You won’t be able to stop!
You have to get these books as the trilogy. You won’t be sorry. I couldn’t wait to get to the second book after reading the last line of the first. The storyline is captivating- I was rooting for the characters who made me angry, made me laugh and made me reflect on some things. The author has the unique ability to write the characters internal monologue which was pretty enlightening and even self reflecting (which I don’t typically like😂). This second book was just as good as the first!
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 chapters in the book begins with one of Maggie’s letters. You can just feel her loneliness at the beginning to her attempt at moving on by the end. Cash’s brain injury is getting worse and his coping mechanisms are not seeming to work as well any longer. Cash is more set on setting his plan into motion, even though we don’t know for sure what his plan is you can kind of guess what he is planning. Not sure I am guessing correctly but you just get a feeling. Volume 2 ends with Maggie questioning her feelings for the guys and the past showing up on Luc’s doorstep. Volume 3 is going to finish of the story and I have a feeling it will be a doozy and I need to be ready. I am so loving this series and can’t wait to read the next book.
