Product Details (as per amazon page)

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 24-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?

When you pick up a new Sarah Morgan book you know you are in for a treat.  I know through past experiences reading her novels that Sarah Morgan’s stories will envelope me in warmth, contentment, joy and love.  I’m always eager and excited to read all her new offerings but I just want to savour them as I don’t want the stories to end.

Moonlight over Manhattan is the 6th book in the From Manhattan with Love series.  Each book concentrates on one character but you will find that they will crop up in other stories and it’s wonderful when this happens as it is truly like watching your favourite romcom sitcom when a loved character that you’ve not seen turns up in a scene and you are instantly filled with a recognisable rush of love.  All the books in the series can be read as a standalone but I wholeheartedly recommend reading all the books in the series in chronological order.  The full list of the books in the series are:

Midnight at Tiffanys (prequel novella)

  1. Sleepless in Manhattan
  2. Sunset in Central Park
  3. Miracle on 5th Avenue
  4. New York, Actually
  5. Holiday in The Hamptons
  6. Moonlight over Manhattan

Moonlight over Manhattan is Harriet Knight’s story.  The quiet, shy twin who shares ownership of The Bark Rangers dog walking business with her twin sister Fliss.  Now that Fliss and their older brother Daniel are happily ensconced in a loving relationship with their respective partners Harriet is now living on her own in the city.  Harriet is starting to feel a little lonely and wants the companionship and love that her siblings have found.  Through a difficult childhood that has left emotional scars Harriet is at her happiest living in her comfort zone but as she’s now living independently she knows she has to start facing her fears and challenging herself to step out of her box and attempt the impossible in her eyes.

Dr Ethan Black thrives on the adrenalin that flows with his job in the city’s ER department.  After a failed marriage, which he feels responsible for, he has closed off his heart to help cope with the everyday chaos in the hospital.

One of Harriet’s clients is an adorable spaniel called Madi.  She’s full of life but is feeling a little unsettled at the moment as she has been left in the temporary care of Ethan Black, brother of Madi’s owner.  Ethan is not a dog lover but he loves his sister and doesn’t hesitate to help look after her dog Madi. However, Madi has other ideas and luckily for Ethan (and Madi) he can call on the expertise help from Harriet Knight.

Can Madi’s boundless energy bring shy Harriet and Dr Ethan Black together?  Harriet can cope with a stubborn dog but how will she fare with the Doctor?

I loved this story of Harriet overcoming many obstacles and finding herself.  But the story isn’t all one sided as Ethan himself has built a block around himself and he too has to face issues he doesn’t feel comfortable with.  A beautiful setting as always from Sarah Morgan with vivid descriptions helping you see and feel the locations.  I also love how the author has introduced animals in her stories as they lend a softer side to the characters and help spread more humour and warmth.

A gorgeous romance that’ll leave you feeling cosy and comforted.
