Summary

National best-selling author Lisa Wingate has inspired countless readers with her homegrown tales from her Texas Hill Country series. Archeologist Lindsey Attwood is distraught that her ex-husband has taken their eight-year-old daughter to Mexico for the summer. To take her mind off her worries, she agrees to visit her twin sister Laura and best friend Collie to help find stolen fossilized dinosaur tracks. But Lindsey soon discovers more than she bargained for, including a friendly mutt and hunky cowboy/veterinarian Zack Truitt.

A Fun, Light Read!

This was a very enjoyable story. I was tempted by Johanna Parker as narrator and was not disappointed. Johanna's excellent performance enhanced this fun, interesting romantic mystery.

Uptight Heroine

If you could sum up Over the Moon at the Big Lizard Diner in three words, what would they be?

Whiny Victim Revived.

Would you recommend Over the Moon at the Big Lizard Diner to your friends? Why or why not?

If you want a light listen to pass the time and don't mind all the self reflection and whining, this might be a better choice than a gory murder mystery.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Johanna Parker?

Possibly. If only the author offered more depth and realty rather than morality and obsessive self talk.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Can't comment because this book isn't worth a film.

Any additional comments?

Give us some depth.

I wouldn’t listen to this again ☹️

I liked the one that I listened to, very much. However, it wasn’t into it very far before I realized it was going to be the same story over again, although with different characters. And I had trouble even finishing it, because I didn’t like Lindsays belligerent attitude and her “poor, poor me, because everyone’s talking about me behind my back”

Another big city girl meets small town cowboy

This time Heroine is a divorced mother with schizophrenic tendencies. Her task helps toward a magazine article. Instead of getting chased, she chases a dog. At one point, she delays research to spend time with Hero. John Wayne appears in her dreams, which I forget occurred in the other two books. Hero's a veterinarian in a fictional Texas town with a troubled past. He left town and returned. There are quirky townspeople.

Great finish to trilogy

Over the Moon is by far the best in this trilogy by Lisa Wingate. I enjoyed Texas Cooking and Lone Star Cafe but I laughed out loud while listening to this story. Very entertaining. There were times when I wanted to shake “Practical Lindsey” but still adored this book.

Entertaining from start to finish

Lisa Wingate has become another of my favorite authors. She writes a solid storyline (or two) with humor, dilemmas that are realistic (for those of us who are older than 20), stirs in a separate town drama from the main characters that always adds spice to the reality of the story, tosses in some nostalgia of the ancesters related/unrelated from the past that pulls the heartstrings, whirls it into a crisis between the two main characters with a crisis requiring a decision that makes one get cold feet, then finally they batten down their doubts for love and resolve it because of course this is romance.
