Hello There Friends! I recently finished my second ever series, The From Manhattan With Love series by Sarah Morgan. I am proud of myself for making it through another series, but I am so sad to see this one end.
Moonlight Over Manhattan by Sarah Morgan
Book 6 in the From Manhattan With Love series
Published May 2017 by HQN Books
Narrated on audiobook by Jennifer Woodward
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?
I love the way Sarah Morgan crafts a story. You can tell she has been writing, and perfecting her craft for a while now. This series has six books in it, and next to Miracle on 5th Avenue, I’d have to say Moonlight Over Manhattan has to be my second favorite.
Harriet, the main character in Moonlight Over Manhattan, felt like such a real 20 something young woman living in Manhattan. She is easily one of those characters you wish you could be friends with. In the story, Harriet is challenging herself to do something that scares her everyday which I found added fun twists to the story.
I really liked reading Harriet’s relationship with her sister and brother. Their bond is so strong which was refreshing to read, but Fliss and Daniel are always trying to protect Harriet, which is part of the reason she has her personal challenge going on.
I loved how compassionate and friendly Harriet was as a person. No matter the age or circumstance, she is able to make friends with anyone. A good reminder for real life, you never know who could become your next best friend.
I really enjoyed the romance between Harriet and Ethan. It is funny how they meet and then end up in each other’s lives again. As you’re reading this book, you know you are reading the story of two people who are perfect for each other, but they haven’t figured that out yet.
I think my absolute favorite thing about this story is that Harriet believes in love, despite what she has been through, but there is a moment towards the end where she stands up for herself. She knows the kind of person she is and how she will react and handle certain situations. She is smart enough to recognize that and basically pass, to not put herself through that and even though I loved the story so much up to that point, that particular scene made me love it even more.
