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.

Sarah Morgan’s stories never disappoint, each story wraps itself around my heart caressing it with it’s delicious storyline of love finding it’s way.  I absolutely adored this story; Holiday in the Hamptons is the perfect antidote to a wet English summer’s day.  Sarah Morgan takes us on a beautiful journey to an idyllic coastal setting of the Hamptons.  I could hear the distinct sounds of the waves and the call of the sea birds and felt the light breeze in the air.  I was there sat on the beach with Fliss, the leading lady in this story.

Fliss 10 years ago had an intense hot summer in the Hamptons with Seth Carlyle.  The chemistry shared between the couple was to remain and a decade later when Fliss finds out he is in her neighbourhood, the city of New York suddenly feels like a very small space and Fliss is afraid of bumping into him so she escapes to stay with her gran in the Hamptons.  Her escape route doesn’t go to plan when the first person she meets is non other than her ex Seth Carlyle.  She is left almost speechless and goes to extreme lengths to keep her closely guarded feelings to herself.

Fliss together with her twin sister Harriet and older brother Daniel have had a difficult upbringing.  The trio have remained protective of each other and the insecurities they held as children are still felt in the background.  Seth’s upbringing was the total opposite to Fliss his family were loving and open with each other.  Can the shared love of the sea and dogs bring the couple back together?  Will the warmth from the setting melt away Fliss’ barriers?  A gorgeous, heart stopping romance that I didn’t want to end.  5/5*

I’ve just finished reading this irresistible novel and had to put down my thoughts straight away.  Sarah Morgan’s novels are a guaranteed page-turner and a delight and this latest one of hers; New York, Actually, is just simply wonderful.  You will fall in love with the characters, fall in love with Valentine and Brutus and best of all you will fall in love with the story.

New York, Actually is book 4 in The Manhattan with Love series.  You don’t have to read the other stories in the series as New York, Actually can be thoroughly enjoyed as a stand alone but to fully gorge yourself in the wonderfulness of this series I would recommend reading all the books in the series, which are:

  • Sleepless in Manhattan
  • Sunset in Central Park
  • Miracle on 5th Avenue

Molly has a secret persona, she is New York’s famous agony aunt and is owner of the relationship blog Ask a Girl.  Molly moved to New York three years ago following a relationship break-up that was publicly slammed on social media sending repercussions to her professional and personal life.  She never received any support from her so called friends back then and has continually blamed herself for what happened and believes she is a disaster in relationships.  However, her professional expertise in relationships is flourishing.  The only man in her life now is her dog Valentine.  Valentine is a Dalmatian breed dog with a sweet heart shaped nose he loves nothing more than to go jogging with Molly in Central Park.

Daniel is one of the top divorce lawyers in New York, he’s brilliant at his job and has a ‘love them and leave them’ attitude with women.  He doesn’t want everlasting love as he doesn’t agree in love.  Events in the past have hurt Daniel and his twin sisters badly and love is not on his agenda at all.  However, Daniel can’t stop thinking about the girl in the park running with her Dalmatian dog.  He normally has no problem with female attention but this girl seems to have ‘Daniel shaped blinkers’ against her eyes.  Daniel seeks the help of his sisters to try and attract the girl’s attention.  He decides to borrow one of the dogs from The Bark Rangers, the pet walking and fostering business, his twin sisters run.  Daniel claims to not be a dog person but the Alsatian dog he has taken for a walk soon takes a shine to Daniel but when the unlikely pair do meet up with the girl and her dog in the park the Alsatian and the Dalmatian become an instant hit.  Will this attraction spread to their unsuspecting humans?  Will Molly and Daniel learn to let down the barriers they’ve built from past experiences and give love a chance?

This story had it all!  It was full of sexual chemistry, romance, emotion and warmth.  Scenes to grip you and leave you fighting the pages to find out what happens next.  A gorgeous story that I just didn’t want to end … 5/5*
