The Moon Sister - Book 5 in The Seven Sisters Series

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis:  Tiggy D’Aplièse spends her days experiencing the raw beauty of the Scottish Highlands doing a job she loves at a deer sanctuary. But when the sanctuary is forced to close, she is offered a job as a wildlife consultant on the vast and isolated estate of the elusive and troubled laird, Charlie Kinnaird. She has no idea that the move will not only irrevocably alter her future, but also bring her face-to-face with her past.

At the estate, she meets Chilly, an elderly Romani man who fled from Spain seventy years before. He tells her that not only does she possess a sixth sense passed down from her ancestors, but it was foretold long ago that he would be the one to send her back home…

In 1912, in the poor Romani community outside the city walls of Granada, Lucía Amaya-Albaycin is born. Destined to be the greatest flamenco dancer of her generation—and named La Candela, due to the inner flame that burns through her when she dances— Lucía is whisked away by her ambitious and talented guitarist father at the tender age of ten to dance in the flamenco bars of Barcelona. Her mother is devastated by the loss of her daughter and as civil war threatens in Spain, tragedy strikes the rest of her family. Now in Madrid, Lucía and her troupe of dancers are forced to flee for their lives, their journey taking them far across the water to South America and eventually, to North America and New York—Lucía’s long-held dream. But to pursue it, she must choose between her passion for her career and the man she adores.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: I have enjoyed all The Seven Sisters books in this series thus far; however, The Moon Sister is now my favorite!  Tiggy's story, where do I start?  What I really loved about The Moon Sister was the story of Lucia.  What a story. Lucia was a strong, adventurous, talented and selfish girl. Her mother was as solid and loyal as they come.  Her father was always the dreamer. I absolutely loved the adventure we went on with Tiggy's family.

Tiggy is a very kind hearted person. She always seeks the good in people and puts them first before her own needs. She is working as a wildlife consultant for Charlie Kinnaird.  The estate is having financial troubles and Tiggy soon finds herself in the middle of some craziness.  We encounter Zed who has ties to the other sisters and may have been involved with Pa Salt.  Zed is some how tied in with Charlie's wife.  Zed is still an evil mystery to us but I have feeling we will find out more in Electra's book (can't wait for book 6).  In the end, it all works out and leaves us wanting book 6, now!

One other bit I really liked about the book was that we go back to Atlantis and Ma.  It is very interesting as Tiggy discovers a secret area in the house and starts to explore!  Something is going to come of this, I am sure.

Can't wait for book 6 and read about Electra and her past.

Would I Read Other Books by the Author:  I have really enjoyed the series: The Seven Sisters, The Storm Sister, The Shadow Sister, and The Pearl Sister.  I would really like to read Lucinda's other books: The Love Letter, The Angel Tree, The Olive Tree, The Royal Secret, The Girl on the Cliff, and The Butterfly Room.
