Genre: Holiday Romance
Publisher: HQN Books
Release Date: November 28, 2017
Her twin's happily settled and enjoying life in the Hamptons. Harriet Knight decides to challenge herself now that her sister isn't sharing the apartment. Her first real act is online dating and this latest date is going horribly wrong. Her date is far older than he advertised. That's why Harriet is jumping out of bathroom windows and twisting her ankle in the process.
A trip to the emergency room puts Harriet in the care of a Dr. Dreamy, but she knows she'll never see him again, or will she? Harriet's a dog walker. Her business is booming. She's happy to do as her clients ask, and picking up the energetic Madi and her client's brother's house is no problem. That is until Harriet discovers Dr. Dreamy is the brother and he's a grump with no tolerance for an active dog. Ethan's hopeful she'll move into his home temporarily to help with this dog he simply cannot manage.
Harriet will do anything for the dogs in her care, so she agrees. Little does she know that the grumpy doctor she's living with could be her very own Mr. Right.
Strengths and Weaknesses
You do not need to have read all the books in the From Manhattan With Love series, but you'll want to. Moonlight Over Manhattan hit all of my marks. I loved the characters, the setting, and the pace. Things move swiftly, but not so fast that they become unbelievable or feel rushed.
I've read several of the books, and some do tie together in terms of characters, but each stands alone. If you're worried about diving into something that's already started, don't. There are no plots that carry into another book in the series.
RTR's Bottom Line
I love this series and this is another excellent addition. Ethan was a tad on a grumpy side, but he had his reasons. I liked watching him slowly changing his views on dogs and love in general. Harriet's steadfast beliefs helped add tension to their relationship. I've been waiting for her to have her own story, and it definitely did not disappoint.
