This sweet novella really put me in the mood for Christmas (and Thanksgiving, for that matter, as that holiday is also a big part of the story). Set in New York City, Moonlight Over Manhattan had a great, big-city feel, but emphasised the importance of family, friends, and trust in God. It also touched on the truth that appearances can be deceiving.
Sarah and Justin were definitely opposites in some ways, and I wondered how they were going to work through their misunderstandings. Both characters had a bit of growing to do, but especially Sarah. This was a story that left me with a happy feeling as I finished the last page.
If you are like me, and enjoy reading Christmas stories as the holiday season approaches, then I definitely recommend Moonlight Over Manhattan!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Professional organizer Sarah Montgomery is hired to organize her elderly neighbor’s cluttered apartment by Justin Latimer, her neighbor’s grandson. Sarah believes free-spirited Justin is a lazy, unemployed poet who is taking advantage of his grandmother’s generosity. Though attracted to him, she guards her heart against her growing feelings. As Sarah and Justin work together to help his grandmother and enjoy Christmas events in NYC, romantic sparks fly. When Sarah discovers who Justin really is, she must decide if she will continue to hide behind her protective wall or open her heart and embrace love. Moonlight Over Manhattan (formerly titled Moonlight and Mistletoe) was originally published in A Big Apple Christmas. It has been updated for new readers to enjoy.
