Love is stronger than time... 

The future never goes as planned.

People are never what they seem.

Time changes everything.

So you want to know what happened to Anna and Julian? Well, listen up, because I’ve got the whole scoop. I’m Jules, btw, and I am an artist, as you already know if you’ve read Watercolor. What you might not know is I inherited my mother’s cute little newsy nose, thank you very much.

It’s high school reunion time, and everyone’s coming back to Fairview—everyone who’s not already there, mind you. What went wrong, who’s fault it was, and why the heck nobody knew about me… it’s all coming out.

Long-distance relationships rarely last, and a lot of water has passed under that bridge. Big Secrets will be exposed, and in the end we’ll know if that old saying is true: Love is stronger than time.

in review my thoughts

I’m actually ashamed it has taken me as long to write this review as it has. It’s not a reflection of the book in any way, shape or form. I’m simply not ready to give up these characters and writing a review makes it all seem so final. But, it’s high past time I do this. I’m going to keep it pretty short and sweet because this is a story you just have to experience for yourself.

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 Anna and Julian’s daughter, 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.

About Leigh Talbert Moore

Leigh Talbert Moore wrote her first graphic novel at the age of nine--about a lady scientist burned by acid. Sadly, the text of "Fury Woman" was lost, and Leigh's novelist aspirations went on hiatus.

After working more than a decade in journalism, editing, marketing, and public relations, she began writing books again, and in 2009 completed Dragonfly. Today, Leigh is the author of several popular young adult and new adult novels, all with a strong romantic slant.

She lives with her husband and two young children in the middle of the country, where she conjures new worlds, characters, and situations while playing chauffeur, chaperone, group activity leader, and referee.

And she's still trying to remember the plot of "Fury Woman"...
