Borrego Moon is book one in Kat Drennan’s Love on the Faultline. It follows the complicated relationship of Alex and Lily as past and present collide to once more bring them together. It was great watching the gradual building and restoration of their relationship. I enjoyed the characters, I thought they were well-written, engaging, with enough flaws, hang-ups and personality to make them realistic. The investigation aspect adds intrigue and mystery to the compelling romance and leaves you eager to discover the truth from all those years ago, and there is more than one secret to be uncovered. I found the book to be compelling, engaging, and entertaining. I didn’t want to put it down until I had all the answers.
