Review: Moonlight Over Manhattan by Sarah Morgan
Moonlight Over Manhattan (From Manhattan with Love) - Sarah Morgan

Harriet Knight has always been introverted, relying on her more confident twin, Fliss, to help her navigate the uncomfortable sea of humanity outside their apartment. But now Fliss has moved out to live with her fiancé, and Harriet has decided it’s time to push herself outside her comfort zone in order to seek changes in her life. She’s put herself on a month-long challenge to do something she wouldn’t normally everyday between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

 

Dr. Ethan Black works in the ER of a Manhattan hospital. He’s great at this job, knowledgeable, friendly, and able to put aside the overwhelming array of emotions that can spring up in his intense line of work. But when he meets Harriet who simply twisted her ankle and takes his professional advice at face value, he realizes he’s become too cynical. When Ethan agrees to watch his sister’s dog for a short time and Harriet comes as part of the package, Ethan begins to question his own outlooks on life.

 

Moonlight Over Manhattan is another wonderful romance in Ms. Morgan’s enjoyable From Manhattan with Love series. This time, the story focuses on Fliss’s twin, Harriet, the timid sister who lets Daniel and Fliss take care of her. In the previous two books, we’ve gotten glimpses of Harriet, but in Moonlight Over Manhattan, Harriet is allow to develop and grow. 

 

Challenge Harriet, the name she calls herself because of her goal to do something outside of her comfort zone for a month, is full of surprises, doing things that would be difficult for Harriet. But what happens over the course of the book is that Challenge Harriet and Harriet become one. She learns how to be comfortable in her own skin and discovers she can trip up, recover, and move ahead. And Ethan’s genuine joy in seeing this transformation in Harriet is contagious. I found myself cheering for Harriet each time she tried something new.

 

While Ethan is an equal partner in this romance, I feel his storyline is overshadowed by Harriet’s. Not only did it seem he had fewer POVs, but because he has given up on love and the messy emotions that get in the way of his job, we don’t get a lot of emotion out of his POVs. Yet, he’s empathetic and kind, with a bedside manner of a saint. And Ethan is freakishly perceptive, in ways I’ve not seen in real life men. For example, realizing how Harriet uses food to help people and make things better and that she isn’t trying to win his heart, but just being who she is: an honest, giving person. He’s just too astute. But that’s also how his character is developed.

 

While minor, I did have a couple issues with the storyline. For example, Ethan’s need for Harriet to move into his home, rather than have his sister’s dog go home with Harriet. Although I feel the reason for Harriet moving in is a bit ridiculous, the author doesn’t use it to press them together. Additionally, for someone who is so dedicated to animals, Harriet spends a lot of time not walking dogs and easily finding other people to take care of her responsibilities. At one point she is bottle feeding kittens, which is a huge responsibility and a round-the-clock job, yet she goes out of town the next day or so. 

 

In the end, I loved Harriet and Ethan; I loved watching them grow close, and loved how they ended together. Moonlight Over Manhattan, and the entire From Manhattan with Love series, is great because it is about all of those warm fuzzy feelings that make romance my favorite genre to read.

 

My Rating:  B+ Liked It A Lot

Phenomenal
Water Weaver - Morgan Sheppard

Somewhere between Oz and Narnia, and not that far from the little alley that takes you to Hogwart’s, is a beautiful island called Wraidd Elfennol.  The way that Rick Riordan brings to life the traditions of the Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Norse, Morgan Sheppard pulls her readers into the not so forgotten world of the Welsh, where magic is a way of life, and nature is something strong and powerful that must be kept in order.  With strong characters and magnificent details, Sheppard takes her readers on an odyssey that leaves them laughing, gasping, and begging for more.  A story that appeals to old and young alike, Water Weaver is as educational as it is page turning as it follows young and gifted Marella on her journey to discover who she is and what she is made of when she and the other Chosen of Wraidd Elfennol must travel to mystical lands in a desperate attempt to save their tranquil world from all the harm that can come from a world out of balance.  Sheppard does her own weaving as she blends humor, fact, and poignant life lessons into a piece that reads like an articulate friend telling you a fascinating story in front of a cozy fire.  She had hooked me with Marella, the first book in this series, but now I am an addict.  Water Weaver is an extraordinary read that leaves you craving exotic foods, a warm cup of tea, and her next book.

Incredible Read
Marella - Morgan Sheppard

Whether you are a young adult, or just young at heart, you are bound to love Marella. I'm still not sure what I enjoyed most about this novel. In the beginning, I was impressed with the author's detailed and flavorful world building as she draws us into a world of wonder with delightful characters who care about each other and the world they live in. It's a world full of animals who bond with people and the hint of magic bound in realism. I soon found myself as protective of the main character as her family while I watched her begin her journey into adulthood. An explanatory and intriguing ending are sending me off to the next book in this series with the sincere hope that Morgan Sheppard will be writing many more in this series because I just found my new book addiction.

Lichterzauber in Manhattan

Eva ist eine hoffnungslose Romantikerin und sieht nur die guten Seiten des Lebens. Kein Wunder, dass sie Weihnachten in New York liebt wie kein anderes Fest im Jahr. Um ihr Konto aufzustocken, tritt die New Yorker Food-Bloggerin eine Stelle bei dem erfolgreichen Horror-Autor Lucas Bale an. Womit sie nicht gerechnet hat: Der grimmige Brite kann die Feiertage nicht ausstehen. Mit Tannenschmuck und Plätzchenduft will Eva ein kleines Weihnachtswunder an ihm wirken - mit mehr als frostigem Ergebnis. Warum nur fühlt sie sich zu ihm hingezogen, obwohl sie unterschiedlicher kaum sein könnten?

 

Meine Meinung:

Ich bin beim Stöbern bei Netgalley auf dieses Buch aufmerksam geworden. Dieses wurde mir dann freundlicherweise von diesen zu Rezensionszwecken zur Verfügung gestellt. 

Der Einstieg in das Buch ist mir sehr leicht gefallen, auch der Schreibstil war schön flüssig. 

Ich habe jetzt bei erst gesehen, dass dies wohl der 3. Teil einer Reihe ist, dies war beim Lesen aber nicht zu merken, so dass ich der Meinung bin, dass man die Bände nicht zwingend hintereinander weg lesen muss. Bei der Vorgängerbänden geht es wohl um ihre Freundinnen Paige und Frankie.

Der Hauptprotagonist Lucas konnte mich von Anfang an begeistern, mit Eva hatte ich anfangs etwas Probleme. 

Ich lese nicht so häufig reine Liebesromane, aber so und ab und an kann es mich schon begeistern. Allerdings muss ich sagen, dass dieser Roman schon auf sehr viele Klischees zurückgegriffen hat, was ich ein wenig schade fand. 

Alles in allem kann ich hier aber eine klare Kauf- und Leseempfehlung aussprechen für alle, die Lust auf eine lockerleichte Liebesgeschichte im Winter haben. Von mir bekommt das Buch 4 Sterne.
