Hunter's Moon by Don Hoesel
Every family has secrets.
Few will go as far as the Baxters to keep them.
Bestselling novelist CJ Baxter has made a career out of writing hard-hitting stories ripped from his own life. Still there's one story from his past he's never told. One secret that's remained buried for decades.
Now, seventeen years after swearing he'd never return, CJ is headed back to Adelia, NY. His life in Tennessee has fallen to pieces, his grandfather is dying, and CJ can no longer run from the past.
With Graham Baxter, CJ's brother, running for Senate, a black sheep digging up old family secrets is the last thing the family and campaign can afford. CJ soon discovers that blood may be thicker than water, but it's no match for power and money.
There are wounds even time cannot heal.
Hunter’s Moon was a highly interesting look into a families closet of skeleton’s. A thriller of sorts that has depth, so it’s not your light Summer read, it’s a heavy book that takes the readers on an emotional ride as CJ Baxter discovers the truth that was hidden. A perfect read for those who like a weighty type of drama.
