Today, I’m welcoming Sharon Struth to my blog with her new release, SHARE THE MOON, one of my lovely sister authors with Kensington Books/Lyrical Press.
Sharon, please tell us about your new release.
It’s about a small-town on a big lake and a woman who wants to buy some vineyard property…but she wants the land for more than one reason. Here’s a blurb:
Sometimes trust is the toughest lesson to learn.
Sophie Shaw is days away from signing a contract that will fulfill her dream of owning a vineyard. For her, it’s a chance to restart her life and put past tragedies to rest. But Duncan Jamieson’s counter offer blows hers out to sea.
Duncan still finds Sophie as appealing as he had during boyhood vacations to the lake. Older and wiser now, he has his own reasons for wanting the land. His offer, however, hinges on a zoning change approval.
Bribery rumors threaten the deal and make Sophie wary of Duncan, yet she cannot deny his appeal. When her journalistic research uncovers a Jamieson family secret, trust becomes the hardest lesson for them both.
It sounds intriguing. I really like the mention of a family secret, a plot thread that always appeals to me. How did you choose your title?
Share the Moon is set on Blue Moon Lake. Sophie has lived on the lake her whole life, but not because of choice, but rather circumstances have kept her there. She learns a lesson along the way in this story, that sometimes the life we’ve been handed and share with others is the one we’re meant to live.
We know your book is worthy of the silver screen. If a production company scooped up the movie rights, who would you cast in the lead roles as your hero and heroine?
Duncan Jamieson is my modern day Scottish fantasy. Sorry, no kilts, ladies, but if I were to cast this as a film Scottish actor Kevin McKidd would be asked in for an audition, pronto! Sophie Shaw has always appeared to me as this photo of Julianna Margulies.
Oooh, very nice choices! And now for a few questions about you. 🙂
What is your favorite season?
Fall, hands down! I’m chomping at the bit right now for those husky, crisp and cool autumn nights.
Dogs. My neighbors call me the dog whisperer, but I just love dogs.
Food you never grow tired of?
Cheese. Any kind of cheese. Cheese preferably with wine.
Are you a night owl or morning lark?
Morning lark. My sister is a night owl and once she was talking to me after 11 p.m. I fell asleep and woke up to find her gone and a wee bit angry.
Casual or dressy?
Casual, all the way, sandals and jeans if possible. No coat or socks, either. I live in New England, so obviously I must put them on at some point. But I hold out until my toes are frozen.
LOL! I love your answers. And I’m so jealous you live in New England. The history in that area has always been a huge draw for me. I’m right there with you in looking forward to the return of autumn. Summer is my favorite season, but fall is a close second. I bet it’s spectacular in your part of the country.
Thanks for being my guest today, Sharon. I wish you much success with Share the Moon!

An good post and Share the Moon sounds like a fabulous story. I like autumn too. I think its a popular season with a lot of writers.
Hi Daisy! Thanks so much! Autumn is my absolutely favorite season. It’s a great time to set a story. So colorful and so much too enjoy before the winter sets in. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
Thanks for hosting me today, Mae. I don’t want to make you any more jealous, but the New England autumns wow me every single time. I kind of feel like each part of the country offers something amazing though. If you look hard enough, lol!
Hi, Sharon! Lovely to have you here today. I’ve been in New England during autumn and think it’s absolutely spectacular. I’m not too far south, but we don’t get the same glorious blaze of color that you do. Of course, it’s 84 here today, so we’re getting that last hurrah of summer, LOL!
What a fabulous title. Anything with moon is fine by me. Isn’t it funny about autumn being so popular with writers? It’s my favorite too. Thanks, Sharon and Mae. Great post. I enjoyed your answers. http://flossiebentonrogers.com
I’m into Scottish men right now, having just finished Outlander. Duncan sounds lovely!
