Get Caught in UNDERTOW and #WIN!

Undertow, the shocking sequel to Dragonfly, is OUT NOW!
Early Readers are saying...
"An incredibly powerful sequel to Dragonfly. I found myself riveted to the last page by the depth of feeling, loss, tragedy, and love in this gorgeously woven story. A definite must-read.--Jolene Perry, author of Out of Play "As far as a second book for a series goes, Undertow knocked it out of the park.--Jessica, Bend in the Binding reviews
"My God I am so emotional! I have to give a huge KUDOS to Leigh because she knows how to write a story like no one's business!" --Tee, Diary of a Book Addict reviews
"Undertow pulled me under and left me gasping for air and wanting so much more. I couldn’t stop thinking about these characters, and now I’ll never be able to get a shirtless Bill Kyser out of my head." --Magan Vernon, bestselling author of The Only Exception
"Amazing! The characters are lovely, but they're also flawed--that sort of 'realness' and honesty breathes life into them and is truly refreshing to come across as a reader. A fantastic story with a unique execution.--Kristin, Goodreads reviewer

Book 2 in the Dragonfly series

On Amazon

Falling in love will pull you under...
-Bill Kyser has a plan to take the sandy farms of his hometown and turn them into a world-class tourist destination--and become a billionaire in the process. 
-Alexandra "Lexy" LaSalle has a plan to change her life by becoming a world-famous artist. 
-Meg Weaver has a plan to hold onto Bill no matter what she has to do.
Three friends, three dreams.
One fatal decision will change all their lives forever.

In Dragonfly, Bill Kyser gave Anna the three journals that held the story behind the powerful developer's seclusion and the damaged lives of his family members. 
Anna hopes to find a way for Julian to know the truth, but as she digs deeper into the tragic events of the past, she realizes silence could be the only option. 
Now she's in an alliance with the man she formerly feared. And if Julian finds out what she knows, she could lose for good the boy she's starting to love.

Three bad things I learned this year:
-People you trust lie, even parents. 
-That hot guy, the one who’s totally into you, he might not be the one. 
-Things are not always how they appear.
Three good things I learned this year:
-Best friends are always there for you, even when they’re far away. 
-That other hot guy, the one who remembers your birthday, he just might be the one. 
-Oh, and things are not always how they appear.

Anna Sanders expected an anonymous (and uneventful) senior year until she crossed paths with rich-and-sexy Jack Kyser and his twin sister Lucy.
Pulling Anna into their extravagant lifestyle on the Gulf Coast, Lucy pushed Anna outside her comfort zone, and Jack showed her feelings she’d never experienced... Until he mysteriously withdrew.
Anna turned to her internship at the city paper and to her old attraction for Julian, a handsome local artist and rising star, for distraction. But both led to her discovery of a decades-old secret closely guarded by the twins’ distant, single father. 
A secret that could permanently change all their lives.

Review of Undertow
4 out of 5 Stars

I'd like to start by saying the only reason Undertow is getting 4 stars and not more is because I wish there has been more Jack, Anna and Julian in it. Though truth be told I don't even know if we will be seeing more of Jack. Undertow unveils a lot of the mystery from Dragonfly the how and whys of things. We get to see the past from Meg, Lexys and Billys POV's from their journal entries which helps us understand how Julian came to be. I must say it is very scandalous, but I found my heart breaking for Lexy and Billy despite their betrayal of Meg, which tells me one thing Leigh creates AMAZING characters who even when they are doing wrong we still love and root for them. I hope that we will get to see more Anna and Julian in Watercolors and that secrets and lies won't tear them apart. Because in case you forgot I'M TEAM JULIAN!!! 

The Dragonfly series Playlist
By Leigh Talbert Moore

I love music—LOVE it. So when I was writing Dragonfly and Undertow (simultaneously) waaay back in 2009-2010, I had several songs going through my mind.

The whole series revolves around the Very Bad Things you’ll read in Undertow (mistakes made by Meg, Bill, and Lexy). Their story feels more like classic rock and pop—old Wham! and Springsteen. (Yes, those can go together.)

Of course, Julian and Anna are the heroes of the tale, and they’re NOW. But how they deal with the truths they’re handed is what makes it all so interesting.

So it’s all a big, eclectic mix tape.

To kind of follow that theme of broken dreams and lies and manipulations, I was thinking of storyteller songs like “Thunder Road.”

But at the same time, I loved songs that focused on a single thought like, “I’m Gonna Make You Love Me” (Jayhawks) or “Make You Smile” (+44).

For your listening enjoyment, I put the condensed list together on Spotify. Here’s the link:

Rock On! And THANKS for reading my books! I hope you fall in love with these characters and their dreams, heartaches, and attempts to make it better as much as I have.
