Life is one big fiesta for Mark Madison...until a public service sentence leads him to a mission in a tiny Mexican village. When Mark Madison is arrested for his third DUI, big brother Blaine pulls a few stings, sending Mark to convert a rundown hacienda into an orphanage. It's the prodigal's last chance to straighten out his life--and to prove that he's worth his weight at Madison Engineering. But Mark can't get rid of a stray piglet that adopts him, and his attempts to court the pretty Corinne Diaz fall flat. He soon realizes that no one could make a go of a project in a place where promises of manana could be tomorrow or next month--or where the village is plagued by some Aztec voodoo-hoodoo. Corinne watches Mark with a judgmental eye, certain that his past irresponsibility will destroy the project--that is, until she is reminded that God gives second chances to His children. When someone tries to drive Corinne and Mark from the hacienda, the couple must untie in heart and faith just to survive.

Customer Reviews for Fiesta Moon, Moonstruck Series #2
Fiesta Moon takes you to a colorful Mexico where haciendas are haunted and superstitions abound. Corinne is an American with Mexican roots who is trying to help a local orphanage and find her biological family. Mark is an American businessman who doesn't put forth much effort to help anyone but himself. Linda Windsor develops these wonderful characters in such a way that you can imagine their pasts unfolding to motivate their current behavior. She weaves the romance throughout the story line - which is easy to do with such a romantic setting - in such a way that it warms the heart. I appreciate that her writing style is "hopeful romance" that avoids leading the reader to experience the disappointment of massive conflict between the romantic leads. This is a sweet, suspenseful love story that will leave you wanting more of these characters and this author.

Review 2 for Fiesta Moon, Moonstruck Series #2
Date:June 23, 2005
I knew from the first few pages that I would love this book. Drawn by Linda Windsors beautiful writing, clever wit, and engaging characters, it didnt take long to devour Fiesta Moon. I hadnt read the first of the Moonstruck Series, Paper Moon, but it wasnt necessary and it didnt stop me enjoying this book immensely. A murdered child, ghostly sightings, and Aztec voodoo, all interwoven through this hilarious love story, make this a compelling read. For those in need of romance and humor get Moonstruck!
