A Midnight Clear
Annapolis, Maryland, 1948

Frances Dumfries is the perfect admiral's daughter. She runs the household, hosts the parties, and never falls for the midshipmen surrounding her. Having fun or putting herself first is definitely not on her schedule. And she doesn't want anyone-particularly not a man too handsome and kind for his own good-to point that out.

New year. New books. New reviews. Yay! Thank goodness for books, seriously.

And what better book to start 2017 off than one that takes place during, wait for it… New Year’s Eve! New Year’s Eve 1950 to be exact. This setting of course kicked my catnip radar into high gear and I’m thrilled to say that I was not disappointed because this novella was AMAZING. That’s a really positive way to start off the new year so that means more good things to come, right? *prayer circle*

Okay, actual review starti

4.5 stars

Damn! This is one of the sweetest romantic series. I just can't get enough.

This is a very quick novella from the Fly me to the Moon series and will be packaged as a holiday set - available November 16, 2016 and includes this novella and A Midnight Clear (Fly Me to the Moon #2) which I also loved.

Longer review coming soon but I highly recommend all the books in this series.

Round Midnight consists of two short stories: "A Midnight Clear" and "A Midnight Kiss". They're both really cute, and, I think, effective novella romances, which are a tricky thing to full off. Both stories center on heroes who are pilots during the 1950s.

"A Midnight Clear"
This one was my favorite. I really, REALLY liked it. The hero falls for the heroine at first sight, and he pursues her in a way that, at first, rubbed me the wrong way because it's definitely on the line of stalkerish or maybe

Read these two novellas at two different times – enjoyed both stories and love the series!


A Midnight Clear

I stayed up till two in the morning to finish this. I thought I could just read a few pages but I was so very wrong. What a wonderful story!

This series makes me so happy

Every book from this series that I've read has been so lovely. The writing, the characters, the story, the era and settings, they all come together to make a book that leaves me with a smile on my face.

My only complaint - which is a standard complaint when I read a novella by a favorite author of mine - is that I wish these had been two full-length novels instead of two novellas. But I'm still giving it give stars, so I guess it's not really a complaint.

This contains new holiday novellas to go with the Fly Me to the Moon series.

I reviewed the first, A Midnight Clear last year. You can read it here.

The second, A Midnight Kiss, is a great addition to must read Christmas romance lists everywhere as well. I just really love all the characters in this series, and getting these little pictures of how the already married astronauts fell in love with their wives is an extra layer of wonderful. This story is about Greg and Betty and takes place mostly

I think I enjoyed this even more than its companion novella; the passage of time really helped in giving it more depth and making it not feel quite so rushed.

Also, I'm just a sucker for a pining idiot guys realizing what they've been missing out on. 4.5 stars.

4 Stars to A MIDNIGHT KISS (2nd novella in set)

This is the last story in the series that I've read, and it's so good. I wish more authors would write about the 1960s in the US. A perfect New Year's read to start off the year.

A Midnight Clear: 2 stars - I dont think that Joe was very respectful of Frances's boundaries. Persistent guy/reluctant girl is an increasingly hard needle to thread and I dont think the authors succeeded, especially coupled with the fact that at the beginning of the story, Joe is "in love" with Frances after one conversation

A Midnight Kiss: 3 stars - This one was cute and I like Greg's earnestness and that the authors specified that the kiss was just the beginning and that they fell in love ove

A couple of sweet and swoony novellas. Loved the characters and the settings — one in 1948 Annapolis around Christmas and the other in 1950 Huntsville, Alabama, on New Year’s Eve. This definitely needed another editor though — lots of missing words, extra words, and words in the wrong place in sentences. Still enjoyable though and I’ll probably check out more in the series because I love the settings.

Both of these were so dear.

Christmas: A Midnight Clear was just balm to the soul, endearing and lovely. It is not a great big story but a darling one with a boy with stars in his eyes and a girl who wants to fly. /3 stars/

New Year: A Midnight Kiss delivered closer to my heart. The same cozy feels but the "it is always the quiet ones" is much more my catnip, especially coupled with spirited amazons. Greg Henkins became my favourite astronaut, period. And I loved Betty. /4 stars/

I loved both of these novellas. They were sweet and the pacing was good. I love military stories and I love historicals. This set combined both of those things which made me love it even more.

Two great short stories. I probably like the Reynolds story more (SO sweet), but both were great. These definitely gave great perspective to the series overall.

I liked the second story better than the first. Maybe because in the first he fell instantly in love with her without knowing her, or because she was just so adamant not to fall for him without knowing him. This was one of those really sweet, soft romances which I enjoyed, but luckily was a novella too given how sweet it was. I like my stories with a little more spice. Set in the 40's, I enjoyed reading about the non violent part of the service back then too. The second was set in the early 50's ...more

So damn romantic! Round Midnight is a box with 2 lovely novellas that will make you sigh and swoon at every page.

A Midnight Clear

Frances Dumfries is the Admiral's daughter and has most of the sailors seeking her attention in order to get something from the Admiral, not her. Because of that, she's not really interested in getting to know any of them, but there's this midshipman that have eyes only for her, Joe Reynolds.

I've lost count of how many times I sighed with Joe. He was really in love w

If you are feeling like 2016 is a giant dumpster fire and you are falling into a pit of despair then get this book. If you haven’t read the series yet – snap up this book and the entire series, grab a cup of tea and some chocolate – curl up and read. You’ll feel better. Promise.

Almost perfect

I loved these 2 stories so much! I loved the time period. Not many romances are set mid-century. This is the time when my parents and my husband's parents met and married. Both of these stories are so sweet and romantic, and although short, we have enough time to know the characters and care about them. I only found one anachronism and that's only because my husband knows motorcycles like the back of his hand. I doubt most anyone else would notice. This book is listed as book two i

A Midnight Clear - previously reviewed

A Midnight Kiss - 5/5 stars

For a novella that takes mostly all in one night, I immensely believe in this couple. It's really a story about how two people can discover a connection and then work to build an actual relationship over a period of time. And is DIVINE.

Will read over and over again.

I wondered while reading if this hero might be on the Autism spectrum, or perhaps neurodiverse in some way, due to his social interactions, his difficulty relating to people, his fixation of puzzles (both people and machines), etc. Regardless, even though he was painfully blunt, he was still suuuuuper swoony.

I loved the heroine's loyalty to her family.

Lovely, lovely little story.
