CORINA’S REVIEW

 

Moonlight Over Manhattan is the second Christmas story in this series, and it seems I adore those the most. Maybe it’s the time of the year, or just the way the author writes holiday inspired novels that tug on my heart strings – whatever the reason, this novel was wonderful.

Moonlight Over Manhattan was exactly what I needed.

A sweet and heart-felt story about finding love during the most festive time of the year. In this sixth installment, Harriet finally finds her HEA. This book, more than others, is a slow burn, friends to lover story that focuses on friendship, self awareness, and two characters that couldn’t be more different if they tried.

Harriet, the second half of a twin that successfully owns and operates a dog walking business in Manhattan, is for the first time without her twin sister Felicity. Felicity found her perfect guy in the last book and decides to spend her first Christmas as a couple – by visiting his family. Harriet, not someone that broods, decides that it would be the perfect time to work on herself, to challenge herself one day at a time. All the things that are hard for her, like dating, talking to strangers and finding the confidence that her twin sister had in surplus, would be checked off the list.

While on such a quest, Harriet comes across Ethan Black, a brooding, and brilliant ER doctor. Ethan, the very opposite of Harriet, is as self confident and assured as Harriet is compassionate and sensitive. She has a way with dogs that Ethan finds complexing but also admiring. When Ethan is being charged with the care for his sisters high-strung dog, he is out of his depth and in need of professional help. By taking over, Harriet slowly and unconsciously works herself into his pragmatic heart and changes Ethan’s workaholic life for the better.

The problem is that dear Ethan boycotts himself by not accepting what is happening. His decision to help Harriet with her challenges, teaching her to conquer her fears and hangups, allows him to rationalize his feelings and chalk them off as just friendship and compassion towards a friend in need.

This drove me nuts!!!!

I really enjoyed those two characters together. By being such complete opposites, they complete each others without realizing. Harriets loving, caring and nurturing personality fills parts of Ethan’s life in surprising ways. He comes to enjoy and crave her homemaking abilities. Suddenly there is someone to come home to, a reason to do something else than just work. And Harriet suddenly had someone that saw her as the individual that she longed to be. A person that likes her with all her flaws and shortcomings.

But Ethan’s persistence in regards to his non existent feelings took some of the enjoyment out of the book. He didn’t believe in love until the very end of the book. That’s hard to swallow. There was no doubt that he enjoyed Harriets company and he genuinely liked her, as well as felt a good amount of attraction towards her. But I just wish he came around much sooner. They were such a sweet couple. I would have loved to see them interact as a couple for more than just a few chapters.

Nevertheless I really enjoyed this novel, it’s been my second favorite after Miracle on 5th Avenue (From Manhattan with Love #3) ( which I haven’t reviewed yet – shame on me).

So far, all of the authors novels have been sweet, sexy and compassionate. The author has the habit of including lot’s of adorable four legged supporting characters – which is for many readers a deciding factor and added bonus. So, if you love wholesome and heart-warming stories – give this series a try – I’m sure you wan’t regret it.

Moonlight Over Manhattan – Sarah Morgan

She’ll risk everything for her own Christmas miracle…

Determined to conquer a lifetime of shyness, Harriet Knight challenges herself to do one thing a day in December that scares her, including celebrating Christmas without her family. But when dog walker Harriet meets her newest client, exuberant spaniel Madi, she adds an extra challenge to her list — dealing with Madi’s temporary dog sitter, gruff doctor Ethan Black, and their very unexpected chemistry.

Ethan thought he was used to chaos, until he met Madi — how can one tiny dog cause such mayhem? To Ethan, the solution is simple — he will pay Harriet to share his New York apartment and provide twenty-four-hour care. But there’s nothing simple about how Harriet makes him feel.

Ethan’s kisses make Harriet shine brighter than the stars over moonlit Manhattan. But when his dog-sitting duties are over and Harriet returns to her own home, will she dare to take the biggest challenge of all — letting Ethan know he has her heart for life, not just for Christmas?

  1. Lovely review. I have heard that this author writes the best holiday romances so I really need to pick up her books soon and I want to do so more since reading this review. Thanks for sharing this.

    1. I loved book 3 – it was the best book so far. She writes sweet romances – and it was only my second holiday book this season. So I was really enjoying it.
