Painting the Moon (Chilton Crosse #1) Reviews
3.5 stars upgraded to four stars for this romance with just a little mystery from Traci Borum.
Noelle is lured to the Cotswolds from San Diego following the death of her Aunt Joy, a renowned artist. Unhappy in her job, and faced with an irate boss who objects to extending her time off so that she can tidy up her aunt's estate, Noelle throws in her job and remains in England, determined to save her aunt's gallery from the financial ruin it is facing.

This was a fun light read that I would classify as women's fiction. The characters has enough depth to keep it from slipping into 'chick lit' territory. It's set in England and is about a great niece who inherits her aunt's estate in England. Her aunt had some secrets that her niece, Noelle, slowly unveils throughout the book. All in all it was a fun read that is perfect for summer.
This was an enjoyable easy read.
I have trouble classifying this as a Romance novel or Women's Fiction because Wuthering Heights is my only basis for comparison. I know little about those genres.
I was moved by this book because the characters showed me what was in their hearts and after closing the book I felt a sense of loss, wondering what happens next in their lives.
The scene that moved me was when Noelle sees Adam for the first time in fourteen years. It is a surprise meeting to both Noelle and the reader, arranged by Noel ...more
For those of you over 30, ever felt like you have lived multiple lives, and felt a rip in the space time continuum when those past lives collided together? Has a trip down memory lane ever left you wondering “Am I really living and how disappointed would my younger self be with me now?” Sorry for the integration, but it is relevant to my review.
Traci Borum’s Painting The Moon takes us on a literary journey that will hit all too close to home for many of us. As adults, we need to stop weighing r ...more
Sometimes I love to read Women's fiction. I think that is where I would put this genre.
Because this was set in Great Britain it was a treat for me to read as I am of course from Great Britain in the UK. There is always something endearing to me in reading a book with places I know are mentioned that I actually heard of or now about.
This is Nota sizzling hot read with lots of bedroom sex, so if you are looking for that, this isn't it. Ifyou are looking for family life, gentle romance and family ...more
Can I please just say how much I love this novel. I mean truly love it. Traci Borum is a fantastic writer and has a gift for transporting a reader to a new place from the comfort of their living sipping tea along with the characters in the precious town of Chilton Crosse. I'm moving there, by the way. #livinginabook

How would you like a trip to the beautiful English countryside? Then go with Noelle to claim an inheritance and find mystery and romance as well. This book is beautifully written. The characters are easy to get to know but the one who really comes alive for me is Mr. Darcy! You know how you want the book to end, but events don't seem to be heading the desired direction. It is refreshing to read a romance that is truly about the heart and not all about sex. I really enjoyed the preface at the fir ...more
