Series: From Manhattan with Love #6
“It was a quick and heart-warming read”
~ Under the Covers
After endeavouring to read as many Christmas books as I can, I have worked out exactly what I like to see in these cosy reads:
1. An adorable side story involving:
c. All of the above
2. A grumpy, yet adorable hero
3. A heroine making either small or large journeys of self-discovery
Moonlight over Manhattan managed to tick these boxes. For number one, as our heroine has a dog walking business we had plenty of cute and mischievous pups popping up. For number two, although our hero emergency room doctor Dr Ethan Black wasn’t exactly grumpy he definitely needed a little bit of warming up. And finally number three, our heroine Harriet Knight definitely makes some discoveries after coming out from under the shadow of her over protective family, who like to shield her due to a difficult childhood.
I haven’t read any of the other books in this series, but you don’t really need to, this can be read as a standalone without any trouble. So if you are after am adorable Christmas read, don’t let the fact that this is book six in the series put you off. It was a quick and heart-warming read as two people, both with their own emotional baggage bond and fall in love whilst looking after a very naughty dog.
Although I enjoyed it, I felt like it lost its magic towards the end as the inevitable break up and get back together bit happened. However, despite this, the first three quarters of this book gave us a good Christmas time read and I would definitely recommend it for some feel good reading.
