I have been with this series and loved it from the beginning. It’s so unique, with a YA/NA crossover “feel” to it. It spans decades, and encompasses the lives of many characters. It has a sort of soap opera likeness to it but with younger main characters. ***If you haven’t read Dragonfly then this review will contain spoilers.*** This series must be read in order, and Mosaic is the conclusion to the four book series. Book one Dragonfly has been FREE for awhile so if you would like to see if it’s for you now is a good time!
At the end of Watercolor things are going great for Julian and Anna. Anna is worried about their upcoming separation because they will be going to different colleges, but this couple is so in love that it appears they can weather the storm. HOWEVER, Leigh gave us the first chapter of Mosaic which showed us that this couple in fact did not stay together. They are still apart almost 2 decades later. And to top it all off Anna had apparently hidden the fact that she had given birth to Julian’s child 17 years earlier!!! O.O I was literally SHOCKED, STUNNED. I mean what could have caused this??
Well that is what Mosaic is about. We are taken back in time, everything is revealed, and I was tempted to throw my iPad out the window a time or two. The angst level was extreme, so severe I swear my muscles ached from the sky high tension in them. The emotional hangover was bad too.
I seriously adore Leigh’s writing style. It’s crazy how she does her POV’s and storytelling with journals, and in this one a private blog diary, but it worked for me both times. My favorite book of the series is actually Undertow, the one made up almost entirely of journal entries. I just loved Bill Keyser’s story. But really I loved all of them. I was emotionally invested in each and every character.
Anyway, back to the story… So normally if a heroine hides a child from the father I am furious. It does not jive well with me, and I WAS mad at Anna, but because I love this Authors writing I kept reading. I said I was emotionally invested in these characters, but I never said I liked them all. And to be totally honest I never really liked Anna all that much. In this one I think I even bordered on hating her at times–but I still cared what happened. And I LOVED Julian. I mean I really liked him before–but I LOVED him in Mosaic ♥♥
I think you will want to give Anna a swift kick in the a$$ too after her ridiculous antics–the ones that separated these two for nearly twenty years. Was it all her fault? I kind of thought so but I will leave you to decide.
Overall, I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED this series to adult fans of YA and/or NA. The steam factor is very low in this one but that is not the case for every novel in the series. However, the storyline is great so I didn’t miss it. I will very much miss this series though, I looked forward to each installment because I knew I would be entertained. And expect the unexpected :)
I will definitely be reading more from this Author, she is a truly talented storyteller!

Mosaic was a very emotional conclusion to the Dragonfly Series, by Leigh T. Moore. I have been following this saga since the first book, and have gone through every bit of heartbreak, happiness, and learning experience with these characters. Everything ended as it should have, and I was very satisfied with the conclusion.
As I reflect on this series, one of the things I loved about it, was how it has spanned generations. Everything came full circle in Mosaic, and the characters of the past, present, and now future of the LaSalle and Kyser family reunited.
Mosaic begins by introducing us to Jules, Anna's, sixteen year old daughter, who is a riot!!! Jules and Anna have returned to Anna's hometown for her 20th High School Reunion. Anna has come to introduce Jules to her biological father, who never knew about her existence. Jules' first night there, she runs in to a certain good looking and charming man with the same blue eyes, and she is pretty sure that he is her father. That night Jules discovers her mother's secret "blog," which is on a key chain drive. It is her mother's diary, and goes back in time to Anna's first year in college, and progresses to everything that occurred between Jules' parents, leading to their eventual estrangement. Then, the story fast-forwards in to the present time.
Mosaic read much like a real life story. It was filled with ups and downs. It reflected on first love, and the mistakes we tend to make when we are young and in love. It reflected on how as we grow up and mature, we learn more about our strengths, and our weaknesses. If we are wise enough, we try to mend the mistakes from our past.
When you love someone, and I mean really love them, it never dies. Mosaic was a second chance at love story. It was emotional, touching, and bittersweet. It had many life lessons in it about communication, regret, forgiveness, and savoring your life.
I give Mosaic, by Leigh T. Moore, 4 Longing For Lost Love, Healing, and New Beginning Filled Stars! The Dragonfly Series is great from the very first to very last book in the series. You will get attached to these characters, and cry, laugh and rejoice with them! I recommend this series, and will miss all of these characters!
Mosaic was truly the perfect conclusion to the Dragonfly series. I'd be lying if I didn't admit I was a little angry (and heartbroken!) after reading the teaser in Watercolor. I hated the idea of Anna and Julian being separated again. They were so perfect together, but unfortunately the timing wasn't as perfect. I was apprehensive going into this book because, well, I could really only hope Anna and Julian's love was stronger than time.
I loved that the book was narrated by Jules. That was a nice touch and definitely added to the overall uniqueness of this series as a whole. She really was the best of her parents attributes smashed together in one spunky little package.
As much as I hate that this series is over, I can't say anything but good things about the way it all wrapped up. I'll miss Anna, Julian and Jules. This was a special story from start to finish. I loved the transition from friends to high school sweethearts to college lovers to EPIC LOVE. Yes, there were times I wanted to yell and scream at the characters. I didn't find Mosaic to be quite as angsty as some of the other books in the series, but it was still packed with feels. And believe me when I tell you that I felt each and every one of them.
If you've not yet read the Dragonfly series, you should definitely give it a shot. (And since all the books have been published, you won't have the agonizing wait I did between installments!) It's a great contemporary romance that spans the young adult and new adult age groups. It was wonderful to watch the characters grow into the people they are in the last book. They just make me smile. I can't help it.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Okay that is not entirely true. I loved this book. It made me feel so deeply.
Now since this is the last book in the series I thought I could do a little background.
How can one persons life go exactly where it should but leave behind a love that is so true and honest? Anna left Julian for a career in London because she thought he was seeing someone else when they were in college. But she has kept a secret for seventeen years that she needs him to know. Julian lied to Anna to make her follow her dreams because he thought she was unfaithful to him all those years ago in college.
Other peoples lies and influence on their relationship has had monumental consequences. And the loss of time is was really killed me. They can never get that back.
It's just too much, I can't even think straight after reading it. I have a massive book hangover and my feelings are all over the place resulting in a melonocholy state of mind at home and at work. That is how deeply this book has touched me.
Her writing is superb, from the very beginning the transitions and dialoge were all on point as well as the plot line being very deep and moving. I am not very analitical in my reviews being more of a hippie dealing with feelings rather than disecting a book literaly. I know what I love and this author has IT!
I don't know how else to tell you to go buy EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THESE BOOKS.
Just, dammit, you need to go read them. Now. Thank you and goodnight.
