Dawn’s Review 4.5 Stars
In Searching for Moore, I was instantly caught up in Schooner’s and Mia’s story and after the way SFM ended I was definitely in need of Moore to Lose to take me off that cliff that I was left on. I love Julie’s writing style and found myself again completely involved with Mia and Schooner in Moore to Lose.
After SFM, I was ready to jump headfirst into the next chapter of Mia and Schooner. I fully expected Moore to Lose to be that but really, it was so much more than that. It was Mia’s story. In my mind, it’s the perfect transition between book 1 and what I fully anticipate (hope?) will happen in book 3. Julie shows us all that Mia goes through from the time she leaves Schooner at college until they meet again.
As difficult as it may be to see Mia’s life and those she surrounds herself with after leaving Schooner, those were moment of growth and learning. Mia is hanging on by a thread and hasn’t really dealt with some of her issues from book 1. Moore to Lose is an opportunity to see her grow and come to terms with all that has happened. As someone that is similar in age to Mia when she and Schooner reconnect, MTL was real and emotional and reminded me how all those who are part of our lives make an impact. A few of those people in MTL were Seth, Tom, and Michael. I won’t spoil anything but there is one part of this story that hit me very hard and had me sobbing for Mia (dammit – doing it again even thinking about it!). Julie Richman knows how to touch on a spectrum of emotions and her character development is spot on as we see Mia’s growth. I was quite a bit frustrated with Schooner throughout part of this book so I’ll be impatiently waiting to see what happens in book 3.
Overall, I was immediately drawn in to Moore to Lose and found myself finishing in 2 sittings (not 1 because I couldn’t keep the eyes open any more!). Julie Richman delivered a book that had my feelings right at the surface and I’ll certainly jump on book 3 the moment it’s available! (Oh, yeah, there’s a slight cliff on this one too…)
