5☆ Heart Warming Festive Romance

Moonlight over Manhatten is the 6th book in the series, but my first ever book by Sarah Morgan.
However i really do feel you can read this comfortably as a standalone.

Moonlight over Manhatten is a story of finding the confidence to find love and start a new beginning. It's a heartwarming story about facing up to your fears. Not forgetting the adorable pup Madi.

Poor Harriet really doesn't seem to have any luck with finding love. She is very shy and lacks self confid

This is the perfect festive read featuring characters we have previously been introduced to and set in Manhattan, New York. It features the lovely Harriet Knight, who is shy, vulnerable, and the twin of the more feisty Fliss who has just moved out of their shared apartment. Fliss and brother, Daniel, have met their partners in previous novels, and both are protective when it comes to Harriet. Harriet has lived her life being sheltered by them, but as their lives move on, she is determined to pro ...more

If you're looking for the perfect Christmas book, then look no further.
It made me laugh, feel sad, smile and feel all warm and cozy inside like I'd just had a yummy, comforting, steaming cup of Bailey's hot chocolate or mulled wine in front of a roaring fire on a chilly winter's day.

For one month between Thanksgiving and Christmas Harriet decides it's time to step out of her comfort zone, and do something that challenges her. She's on a mission to find her confidence as she certainly doesn

Vivacious, uplifting, and downright swoon-worthy!

Moonlight Over Manhattan, the latest novel in the From Manhattan with Love series, is a delightful, character-driven rom-com set in the snowy streets of New York City that introduces us to the sweet, devoted, caring Harriet and the organized, dependable, stoic Ethan as they discover that everything they need and want they may just find in each other.

The prose is witty and crisp. The characters, including the supporting characters, are engaging, fu

"Do one thing every day that scares you." This is our heroine: Harriet's motto for a month and it was such a joy to watch her try to better herself with this challenge. Our hero: Ethan can be a little scary, especially for someone as shy and timid as Harriet. But a cutie pie pup forces them to spend more time together, easing her comfort level. With tons of chemistry, some emotion, humor, and Sarah Morgan's guaranteed smiles, Moonlight Over Manhattan is another winning addition to an already ama

I must admit after New York, Actually and Holiday in the Hamptons failed to hit the heights of the first three books in the From Manhattan with Love series, I did go into this with some trepidation. And I was so pleased to discover that Harriet and Ethan brought back some of the Sarah Morgan magic that's been hiding from me.


This was very much a book that grew on me as the story progressed, as did Harriet and Ethan with a chemistry which very much builds as they get to know one another.

Harriet is the shy one of the Knight siblings, having struggled with a stutter when she was young she was used to her brother and sister running interference in high-stress situations. Now that Harriet’s brother and sister have found love, she’s sort of left alone. Not that she begrudges that, Harriet’s thrilled they’ve found love and happiness, but it has made her step back and take stock of her own life, and finds she’s led a sheltered, closed-off existence. With a determination to take life b ...more

It’s no secret that I don’t read a great deal of contemporary romance, but I know that many have enjoyed the other books in Sarah Morgan’s  From Manhattan With Love  series, so when the latest instalment –Moonlight Over Manhattan – came up for review, I thought I’d give it a try.  On the whole, reading it was a successful venture; I enjoyed the author’s upbeat, gently humorous style and both central characters; and while there’s nothing new here, this would certainly be a good option for anyon ...more

4 - "I live my life in my comfort zone..." Stars!

The sixth book in Sarah Morgan’s From Manhattan with love series finally beings us Harriet Knight’s story.

I started this book with some trepidation, having not managed to finish its predecessor; Holiday in the Hamptons, and finding brother Daniel’s book New York, Actually a tad lackluster compared to the first three books in this series, Moonlight Over Manhattan finally returned to the stellar quality of writing and story-line that I have come to

Oh my god you guys, this was the most adorable book I’ve read in a long time! I don’t think I’ve been introduced to a cuter fictional couple in…well maybe ever actually. I absolutely adored every single page of this feel good read and am now a huge fan of Morgan and can’t wait to go back and read some of her earlier work.

Harriet was my idea of the perfect romantic comedy heroine. She’s cute, smart, kind and funny but she is far from perfect, they type of person any woman could relate to. I love

This was a DNF for me. I was expecting a cute and cosy romance, but what I got was a paint-by-numbers story of a Mary Sue and a guy who's a ~doctor~.

The fact that he's a doctor, and the myriad virtues this apparently entails, take up a large portion of the book. I don't know where people get this idea, but doctors aren't angels. They are regular people who happen to practice medicine. They aren't necessarily sensitive, caring, patient, kind, sexy (etc) just because they are doctors.

Sarah Morgan is (IMHO) one of those elite authors, a definite favourite of mine, that I always keep an eye on for when they have new books being released. She is a skilled wordsmith, bringing to life the characters, scenarios and ensuring her readers feel connected to them. This is the sixth book in the series - Sleepless In Manhattan, Sunset in Central Park, Miracle on 5th Avenue, New York Actually and Holiday in the Hamptons are the earlier books.

This romantic story set around Christmastime in Manhattan was cute, but not my favorite. I have some conclusions reaching the end of year of what tropes I don't really fancy in romance books:
- Insta-love trope: the story unfolds during 5 weeks until Christmas day. Girl meets boy and they fall for each other, apparently, on the spot. But instead of telling each other their

I loved this book, I do always enjoy Sarah Morgan's books. Harriet is a twin just like marykate and Ashley Olsen. The only trouble is that Harriet is the shy one, and her confident twin has just moved out of their apartment. When Harriet decides to go on an oline dating site she describes herself as a dog walker and spends her days with handsome four legged animals. Harriet meets up with a man but he wasn't exactly the way his profile described him. It was a complete mistake Harriet meeting him. ...more

Harriet Knight has lived a lifetime in shyness, when she finally decided to conquer her fears, she challenges herself to do one thing a day in December until Christmas that scares her. That includes online dating, which ends in disaster when the man that showed up at a date is much older than he said he was, a climb out the bathroom window to escape, and a hospital visit due to an injured ankle.

This week, I also read Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe and explained that, growing up, one of the Christmas traditions my mom had was to play ridiculously predictable and cheesy Hallmark movies from Thanksgiving to New Year, all day every day.

I came to this book expecting a cute, swoon-worthy romance story (look at the beautiful cover, who doesn’t expect some kind of cuteness? ^^), but the novel turned out to be completely different from what I expected. And I couldn’t be happier. Because what Sarah Morgan created in this book is so real; it matches with the fact that no one in this world is perfect, and it may take some people a lot of time to grow and finally come to embrace the love that they deserve.

I really enjoyed this one and seeing Harriet blossom and push herself beyond her comfort zone instead of letting her siblings fight her battles. The hero Ethan is a doctor who is a bit jaded but Harriet and a dog change his life. Overall I have really enjoyed this series by Sarah.
This book was adorable, and everything I've come to expect from Morgan. The O'Neil cameo was everything. Fingers crossed for more books in the series. ...more

If you're in the mood for a sweet read, Sarah Morgan is always a sure bet. MOONLIGHT OVER MANHATTAN is a delightful and heartwarming addition to this series, with an appropriately festive backdrop that will leave you with fond memories of a woman's brave quest to challenge herself which leads to the ultimate prize: love.

Harriet Knight is shy and prefers to be in the background, especially in view of how she grew up. She has always let her siblings slay her dragons for her while wishing she was a
I LOVED this book so much!
This is a perfect Feelgood read to pick up anytime and just let yourself get lost in a lighthearted romance story.

This series in general is one of my favorite go-to series when it comes to Feelgood books so I'd highly recommend picking up this book and the other ones as well!

Harriet is trying to be more adventurous and is challenging herself to do things she wouldn't normally. 3 dates later she is trying to escape a restaurant out of the bathroom window. Unfortunately, she twists her ankle and ends up visiting the local hospital.

Ethan is a doctor who loves to help people, but when his sister asks him to look after her dog he isn't feeling the same kind of love. He meets Harriet when she enters the ER department and he treats her. Now he needs her help. Harriet alrea

This sees sweet, shy dog walker Harriet Knight get her man when she meets tactiurn and sexy ER doctor Ethan Black...
