A Kiss Beneath A Strawberry Moon by Tamara Ferguson is the third installment of the captivating Daydreams & Dragonflies Rock ‘N Sweet Romance series. It began at the peak of Crystal Rock with a sweet song, long before these two young souls ever crossed paths. And when they do, it’s as if young Drew had been singing that melody expressly for Marielle forever and ever. But love and life are sometimes far from smooth sailing and will mercilessly test the waters of even the rarest kind of true love. Would Drew and Marielle somehow be torn apart and lose that precious, melodic connection forever? Or would they have the strength to weather life’s storms, somehow drift back to one another, and sail the sea of love beneath the Strawberry Moon?

A Kiss Beneath A Strawberry Moon by Tamara Ferguson is an enchanting lovers' delight! Brimming with the kind of poetic, timeless love that romance readers adore, this beautifully written story about handsome, talented Drew Kendall and lovely Marielle McKinnon is an engaging one. It is bejeweled with beautiful music, friendship, longing, passion, life’s complicated ups and downs, and well as the Strawberry Moon. With its loveable, relatable characters and descriptive scenes, this dreamy novel was a pure joy to read. I turned the last page feeling as if I’d stepped out of a very special, magical kind of love story and didn’t want it to come to an end. Drew and Marielle are simply delightful! I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a feel-good, heartwarming story as much as I do.

The third book in the Daydreams & Dragonflies Sweet Romance series, A Kiss Beneath a Strawberry Moon by Tamara Ferguson is a lovely romance novella about young love that blossoms even in the face of adversity. Marielle McKinnon, a gifted vocalist, and composer Drew Kendall fall in love at a music camp based in Crystal Rock, Wisconsin. While out waiting to see her first strawberry moon, Marielle stumbles upon Drew. He realizes that the song he had been singing was always meant for her. Drew and Marielle have big plans. As their love grows, Marielle’s popularity also increases. Drew later has a bitter falling out with his father. He asks Marielle to wait for him as he explores other options apart from music and college to support himself.

The story is set against romantic and picturesque backdrops with beautiful dragonflies, tranquil and isolated settings, and breath-taking beaches with clear views of the moon. The music practices and performances also form delightful settings for the main story. Marielle and Drew are compelling characters. Both have suffered major losses during childhood and their parents are not supportive of their dreams. Young adult readers will also be drawn to their stories as both pursue individual dreams while waiting to be together. The plot has many surprising elements and Marielle and Drew’s relationship is fraught with uncertainty. It remains focused on the main characters who are both likable. Drew respects Marielle and Marielle looks forward to Drew’s return. A Kiss Beneath a Strawberry Moon by Tamara Ferguson is a powerful and beautiful story that adeptly explores young love, family relationships, and military service in a believable way.

A Kiss Beneath A Strawberry Moon is a work of fiction in the contemporary romance genre and serves as the third book in the Daydreams & Dragonflies Rock 'N Sweet Romance series. It is suitable for the general reading audience and was penned by author Tamara Ferguson. The book tells the story of lovers Marielle and Drew as their relationship begins in an unforgettable evening, only for Drew to be forced to enlist in the army after an unhappy change of fortunes for his family. Now returned as a wounded soldier, he refuses to let himself become a burden on Marielle’s successful career as a singer.

Young love is a popular topic for romance writers, and with good reason; it comes with optimism, energy, and an enormous potential for drama. Tamara Ferguson is a talented romance writer who doesn’t leave any of those aspects untapped in this delightful story of young lovers fighting to keep their romance alive against the reality of young adulthood. Drew in particular is depicted excellently as a young man whose experiences have changed his outlook but not his personality; he is an excellent romantic lead. The unifying theme of their love for music is an excellent one, and I almost felt as if the book should come with a mixtape to listen to whilst I read it. The depiction of their passion for music and how that bleeds over into passion for each other was wonderfully done, and I’d happily recommend A Kiss Beneath A Strawberry Moon to all fans of romantic literature.
