Overview

Moonlight over Manhattan (From Manhattan with Love Series #6) by Sarah Morgan

Sarah Morgan is back with more love and laughter in her acclaimed series, From Manhattan With Love, which Publishers Weekly calls a “sweep-you-off-your-feet romantic experience.”

Determined to conquer a lifetime of shyness, Harriet Knight challenges herself to do one thing a day in December that scares her, including celebrating Christmas without her family. But when dog walker Harriet meets her newest client, exuberant spaniel Madi, she adds an extra challenge to her list—dealing with Madi’s temporary dog sitter, gruff doctor Ethan Black, and their very unexpected chemistry.

Ethan thought he was used to chaos, until he met Madi—how can one tiny dog cause such mayhem? To Ethan, the solution is simple—he will pay Harriet to share his New York apartment and provide twenty-four-hour care. But there’s nothing simple about how Harriet makes him feel.

Ethan’s kisses make Harriet shine brighter than the stars over moonlit Manhattan. But when his dog-sitting duties are over and Harriet returns to her own home, will she dare to take the biggest challenge of all—letting Ethan know he has her heart for life, not just for Christmas?

Well developed characters made this series very difficult to put down!

I always love movies and stories that are set in New York. I don't know but New York for me is a melting pot of everything and there are a lot of places there that would be a good start for a very good story. It's like anything can happen there. The city is teeming with endless possibilities, more so with the most unexpected love stories. I think one of the reasons I signed up to review this book is because it was set in New York. The blurb is also curious and who can't resist a story about a dog walker in New York, right? Sounds like an easy enough and fun job. That is, if you love dogs. Harriet Knight is a shy dog walker who owns half of the dog walking business with her sister which is based in Manhattan. To escape her creepy date she met online, she ended up with a sprained ankle. In the emergency room, she meet Dr. Ethan Black, which turned out to be not the last time that she will see him. This is one of those meet-cute stories. When Ethan met Harriet, Ethan had his own theories and questions about Harriet's sprained ankle. He's mind was coming up with these possibilities about Harriet's situation. Some were bordering on hilarious and extreme. He was used to dealing with the chaos of the ER and the hoard of demanding patients but he was not prepared for a nice one like Harriet who seemed to have melted his heart with just her smile. I think the cutest and the most important character here in this story is Madi. Yes, without her, Ethan and Harriet would not have meet again and became closer. It was all Madi's fault. I think dogs are just the most successful matchmakers. They often draw two people together. Even if sometimes, these two people may not have anything in common at first glance. Madi is one of the reasons why I really enjoyed this story. It's not only funny but also inspirational. This is an example of stories where at first, it seemed to be a disaster in the making but is actually sort of fate intervening. With Madi's antics, I don't think Ethan and Harriet would have been able to get to know each other. Also, the classic saying "The best way to a man's heart is through his stomach" is still very much applicable. Ethan was not immune to Harriet's culinary skills. He ended up wanting Harriet for keeps. I give this book 5/5 very cute and cuddly dogs. I love that Harriet's character is very kind and very caring. Even though she's so shy, she more than made up for it for her ability to reach out and get close to people who really needed the attention and kindness. Just like the two old ladies here in the story whom Harriet helped. Even Ethan was so surprised that she knew more things about her old neighbor than him. I think that's one of the most endearing qualities that Harriet has that drew Ethan to her. This story really made my day. Anyone having a bad day will definitely feel better after reading this. It's not only cute but very sweet as well. And I really liked that both of the characters here became better versions of themselves because they complemented each other. Harriet was able to overcome her fears and was able to do things she was afraid to do before. Of course, like all relationships, there were conflicts too but then love wins at the end. What sets this apart from all other meet-cute and happy ever after stories, is of course, Madi. It was all because of Madi. The best performance in a supporting role award goes to---Madi! I may be partial because I love dogs but still I'd say, it was all Madi.

Moonlight Over Manhattan is another very fun story in the From Manhattan with Love series. It can be read as a stand alone. I always enjoy the characters that the author creates & Moonlight Over Manhattan had such interesting ones. Thje story was adorable & you can't help but root for a happy ending between Harriet & Ethan. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Harriet is shy. She used to stammer and she always lets her twin sister Fliss do the talking. She avoids difficult situations and doesn't like conflicts. The dog-walking business she's running together with Fliss is thriving. However, Fliss is ready to expand and has left New York, so Harriet has a lot more responsibility. This scares her, but it also made her realize she should handle more of her own problems. This makes her decide to do something she's scared of every day for the month between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Will she be able to pull it off? Ethan has a problem. He promised his sister to take care of Madi, the family dog. However, Madi is a social dog and isn't used to the long solitude staying with a doctor brings. That's why Ethan needs help. Harriet could stay at his apartment to take care of Madi. This solution isn't as easy as it sounds though. Harriet has never stayed at a client's apartment before and spending time with Ethan means she has to constantly be out of her comfort zone. Harriet is a great cook and she's wonderful company. The cynical Ethan doesn't think he has a heart, but having Harriet there might defrost him. What will happen after Madi returns home, will Harriet and Ethan have an actual chance at love or were they just conveniently thrown together for the duration of the holidays? Moonlight Over Manhattan is an amazing sparkling love story. I immediately liked Harriet. She's a gentle person with a beautiful big heart. Both people and animals love her, but she's too insecure to see how great she really is. Her challenges are helping her to become a stronger person and I admired her for the determination to learn how to stand up for herself. I loved seeing her grow and enjoyed every single step of the process. When she meets Ethan she's ready to discover how strong she can be and his gruff nature constantly puts her to the test. I couldn't wait to find out where that would lead and loved the complexity of their situation. Sarah Morgan's writing is fast-paced, easy to read and heartwarming. Moonlight Over Manhattan is a fantastic feelgood story. It's obvious Sarah Morgan cares about her characters and she lets her readers come really close to them. I like this aspect of her stories a lot. Another thing I enjoyed about Moonlight Over Manhattan is the animals. Madi has a fabulous personality and I often had to smile when I was reading about her adventures. Sarah Morgan combines the best aspects of homeliness with a gorgeous love story and a lovely happy ending. Moonlight Over Manhattan is enchanting, endearing and incredibly romantic.

Another sweet, feel-good read from Sarah Morgan--this time with dogs and Dr. Hot! I really liked Harriet's character--her love of dogs and her determination to do something every day that she was afraid to from Thanksgiving to Christmas ("Challenge Harriet") was inspirational. It would have been so much easier for her to keep doing what she'd always been doing, so props to her for stepping waaaay outside her comfort zone each and every day. (That first scene with the Great Date Escape--OMG, too, too funny! And a great place to start.) Though they don't seem to have much in common at first, Ethan was definitely a great match for her--it just took him 90+% of the book to realize it. I loved how Harriet seemed to know him even better than he knew himself at times, and how she really made him work for their HEA in the end--again, it would have been so much easier to take the path of least resistance, but even when it could mean never seeing him again, she does the right thing. Go, Harriet! Moonlight Over Manhattan does pull in a few characters from the rest of the series (especially those from Holiday In The Hamptons and New York, Actually , since they star Harriet's siblings) but it absolutely works as a standalone as well. There's also an appearance from many of the characters from the O'Neil Brothers series that is extra fun if you've read those books (and if you haven't, watch out, because that setting is unbelievably tempting! TBR piles, watch out...) but won't leave you out in the cold if you haven't had a chance to yet. Rating: 4 stars / A- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

This was the first book I have read by Sarah Morgan and I will say, I am hooked! I loved this story and the characters. Great, contemporary romance that is perfect for this time of year! Thank you to Netgalley and Harlequin Books for the ARC.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings Twin, Harriet Knight, is the quiet twin that has always let her twin and her sibling be at the forefront of things, but with both of them in relationships she is feeling like the 5th wheel and the single, so she is challenging herself to do things outside of her comfort zone. Out of these three siblings and their stories, Felicity from yesterday was my favorite, but Harriet was a close second. I loved how positive and kind Harriet was and it seemed just so genuine and truthful. I also loved her leading man Ethan and yes he was divorced and a little jaded to love, but it wasn't over the top like romance can sometime do. Unlike Daniel's story, there wasn't a ton of repetition and just a good full story.

Have you ever read a book and been so intuned with the main characters and the life lessons they are learning, that you want to savor every single word and ponder the challenges and changes they are encountering, yet the story is so enthralling you want to inhale it as fast as possible so you can get to that happily ever after moment that fills your heart with joy?! Moonlight Over Manhattan was that kind of experience to me and it left me encouraged and inspired. I love this series so hard. It is one of the three series from this year that I have both in ebook and paperback. The way Sarah Morgan tells the story - with the natural, smooth flow and low-key, life-like build-up of the moment with the charismatic characters, who are easy to relate to and in the main focus of the tale - it creates an atmosphere and environment where you want to spend time in with people you grow to genuinely care about. Harriet Knight is a sweet, kind, considerate, shy, and loving woman who can cook like Ramsey, who loves the concept of family, and adores dogs of all kind. Her growth and development through the story are remarkable. The way she challenges herself to each day to do something that is not easy to her, something that she is not good at, something that makes her uncomfortable, and then survives it, and at times excels in them, was so inspirational. She has her burdens and wounds from the past and current challenges but learning to accept them and live freely with the scars is encouraging. Everything she faced, even if not similar to me personally, the road to the acceptance and excellence was filled with thoughts, revelations, and a-ha moments that were relatable, thoughts I wanted to savor, ideas that resonated in my mind, heart, and soul. I underlined more than ever while reading this book because there were so many moments and thoughts I want to go back to again and again. Then you add that swoon-worthy, melt your panties type of adorable, smoking hot romance with sizzling chemistry between her and Ethan Black, where they first spent time together to really talk, to get to know each other, to see who the other one is, what they value, what they will fight for, and what are their weaknesses and vulnerabilities, and I wanted to start to read the book again as soon as I finished it. With the genuine feelings, true, escalating emotions, charterers you grow honestly care about as you read the tale with a storyline rich in difficult conversations, delightful banter, humor and heartbreak in equal measures, I delighted in this story and treasured each word of it. Moonlight Over Manhattan is one of the favorite books I have read, a story that will stay with me in my mind with its hopeful and reassuring message of 'we can do hard things'. Highly recommended, indeed. ~ Five Spoons

Sweet characters, explosive tension and a sassy dog make for an awesome read! I loved seeing Harriet strive to take control of her life ... and find her happily ever after along the way! Watching her overcome her past was a powerful story line that brings mixed emotions to the surface. Pride for her being able to find the strength to try to better herself, yet sadness for the little girl she was. Great story line with lots of laughs along the journey ... and a perfect match of characters. Loved it! Shy introvert Harriet Knight is determined to cut the cord from her twin sister and over-protective brother. She adores them, but she needs to step up and be able to exist on her own. She's set out to make changes in her life and has challenged herself do one thing per day in the month of December that scares her ... including spending Christmas away from her family! She survives a mini-crisis or two along the way, and then meets the challenge that just might do her in ... adorable dog Madi and sexy ER doc Ethan Black! Ethan has an extremely busy and demanding career, but when his sister needs his help during an emergency, he's there for her ... even if it means he has a dog staying at his house. How can one little animal make his world so insane?? There's only one solution! He has to convince Harriet the dog walker to become the dog nanny with 24/7 care from the guest room of his home! When he finds himself becoming attached, how will they handle the attraction they feel? And when the time comes for Madi and Harriet to go back home again, will the sexy doc be happy to get his empty house back?

I really love books that take place in the hustle and bustle of New York City. So I was very happy to get the opportunity to read MOONLIGHT OVER MANHATTAN by Sarah Morgan. This is the sixth book from the author’s MANHATTAN WITH LOVE series, and it can be totally enjoyed as a standalone. Harriet Knight and her twin sister own a thriving dog walking company. Harriet is quite shy, so she takes care of the dogs and the walkers, while her sister grows the business. Harriet is on a mission to get over her shyness, and as a result, has decided to challenge herself each day to attempt something new. The online dating challenge was a bust. She ended up in the emergency room with a sprained ankle, after climbing out from the restaurant's bathroom window to escape her truly horrible date. Harriet's ER doctor, Ethan Black, ends up being her new client only a few days later. Ethan is an amazing doctor, and he has no problem dealing with the many pressures and personalities that comes his way via his job. Dogs, however, are a different story. Temporarily taking care of his sister's pup is more than a challenge, so he ensures that the dog walker his sister has hired will come by his apartment more than once a day. The dog walker happens to be Harriet, and Ethan truly needs her assistance. Over time, they develop a friendship that evolves into much more. This is a well-written novel about courage and love that twists and turns in all the right places. Harriet is a wonderful character, and the steps she takes to work through her insecurities and shyness are inspirational. She is a dog whisperer, and a breath of fresh air with a bit of lust on her mind. Although Ethan has a huge heart, romantic love is difficult for him. Letting Harriet in is one of his challenges. When Harriet and Ethan give in to their desires, the sparks fly. If you are in the mood for a fun and slightly emotional read, pick up a copy of MOONLIGHT OVER MANHATTAN.

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, fun-loving, and affable. And the plot is a truly festive treat with lots of heart, humour, soul-searching, heat, spirit, and chemistry. Moonlight Over Manhattan is undeniably another bestseller for Morgan. It's enchanting, effortless, and the perfect holiday read.

This is a great edition to this series but even if you haven't read the rest of the series you can read this one and not be lost. It can definitely be read as a standalone. That being said, this is a wonderful contemporary set in New York during the Christmas holidays and it had a slow start but once it got going it took off and was great. We met the characters in previous books and they are perfect for each other. Harriet is a twin but the shy and vulnerable twin who has decided it is time to step out of her comfort zone and she has determined to do something everyday that does that and internet dating is definitely out of her comfort zone. After one such attempt and trying to escape through a window resulted in an injury requiring medical attention she meets Ethan. They meet again when out walking and Harriet being a dog walker this is a perfect time for them to run into each other since Ethan is dog watching his sister's dog and he is out of his comfort zone. He implores Harriet for help. It turns out Ethan moves Harriet into his home for the duration of his dog sitting duties. Their chemistry is off the charts but when the dog sitting duties are over and Harriet has to move out will they remain close or will their insecurities get the better of them? This was so good and I definitely recommend this one! As stated before, even if you haven't read the rest of the series you can read this as a standalone and not be lost. **Received this ARC for review**

Harriet is a quiet wreck. Her entire life has been turned upside down and she is searching for her own happiness. Quite hilariously. I enjoyed her story and her journey. She finds strength and a sense of self. She also finds Ethan. I loved Ethan. The story is delightful. The cast of characters and dialogue were both wonderful.

An entertaining and endearing holiday romance... Moonlight over Manhattan by Sarah Morgan is a delightful, fun and festive romance set mostly in Manhattan, New York. It’s a heartwarming holiday story about facing your fears and falling in love. This is only the second book I’ve read by this author. I had previously read and thoroughly enjoyed Miracle on 5th Avenue (Book #3) and honestly couldn’t wait to jump into another book in the author’s Manhattan with Love series. This is the sixth book in the series but, since each book in this series works well as a stand alone, there’s no worries about reading the series in order. As the story opens, we meet Harriet Knight who is shy and reserved. She and her sister run Bark Rangers, a successful dog-walking business in Manhattan. For the first time in her life, Harriet is living alone as her feisty twin sister has just moved out of their shared apartment. Her twin and her brother have both found recently found love and Harriet is truly happy for them. But, she also feels adrift as her siblings have both been very protective of Harriet all of her life. She is determined not to be a burden on her siblings, so she has been challenging herself with tasks outside of her comfort zone. Her challenges haven’t all gone well. At this moment, she is hanging outside a bathroom window over a dumpster with an objective of escaping from a disastrous blind date. This particular challenge night ends up with Harriet in the ER as she fears that she has broken her ankle in her fall from the window. That is how she meets dark, sexy and jaded Dr. Ethan Black, an attending physician in the ER, who, at first fears that Harriet has been the victim of abuse… or that she has purposefully hurt herself to obtain drugs. Hot as Ethan is, Harriet knows he’s not her type and she never expects to see him again. Then, the daughter of one of her clients experiences a medical emergency across the country. Her client needs to leave and makes arrangements with her brother to take care of her dog while she’s gone. He works long hours and agrees to take care of the dog only if his sister’s dog walker comes in to take care of the dog while he’s working. Things don’t start well at all as when Harriet arrives to walk Madi, the dog, on the first day, she finds that Madi has wreaked havoc in Ethan’s home. Ethan walks in and immediately blames Harriet for the mess. Is it possible for these two to build a relationship from that untoward beginning? Both Harriet and Ethan are likable and genuine. They’re complete opposites as she sees a cup as being half full and he sees it as being half empty, but, amazingly, they complement each other. Their story is a heartwarming Cinderella retelling. Harriet believes herself to be the sort of woman men want to help, not the sort they want to help themselves to. Ethan has been married before and believes that he’s not suited to be in a long-term relationship. Will Harriet find the confidence to face life head-on? Will Ethan discover that he is not a hollow tin man without a heart as he deems? AND will all this happen before it’s too late for them? If you are looking for an entertaining and endearing holiday read set against a snowy background, Moonlight over Manhattan perfectly fits the bill! I enjoyed the humor, the setting, the characters and their touching story! I can’t wait to read more books in this series! My full review is published at Reading Between the Wines Book Club.

Shy, quiet Harriet embarks on a quest to build her confidence and become a stronger, courageous person, challenging herself everyday by doing things that would normally scare her. Ethan, an ER trauma doctor, has shut off his emotions so that the job doesn't take a toll on him. He believes that because of this he isn't capable of being in a loving, long-term relationship. Harriet and Ethan have a rocky start. I loved how she stood up to him, even though she was uncomfortable and scared. I enjoyed the progression of their relationship, they actually got to know each other so that when they finally took the plunge it was sweet and sexy. I especially loved them visiting Vermont!! I just wish there had been more of their time there and the wonderful family they visit . "Yeah, well even Superman struggled to save the world and have a relationship. Relationships are complicated." - "Anything that involves people is complicated. That doesn't mean we should walk away...." All in all, it's a light read that is touching, heartwarming, fun and leaves you with all the feels. Christmas stories are one of my favorite reads and this one does not disappoint. I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader copy of this book.

Moonlight Over Manhattan is my favorite book of the series! I loved Ethan and Harriet. They are perfectly imperfect and I loved Harriet's daily Challenge Harriet. This series keeps getting better and better. Sarah Morgan's stories have the perfect mix of romance and humor. She is definitely one of my favorite authors.

Yet another great book in her From Manhattan With Love series! This is the 6th book in the series but all books can be read as a standalone, in my opinion. Harriet has lived a sheltered life, protected by her older brother Daniel and twin sister Fliss. But when Daniel finds true love and Fliss is reconnected with the love of her life, Harriet is left to figure out life on her own. She comes up with a plan: Challenge Harriet. Every day until Christmas she is going to do one thing outside of her comfort zone whether it is to go on blind dates or wear stilettos, she is going to do it. Dr. Ethan Black is an ER doctor and married to his job with no time for anything else. That is, until his sister calls in a favor-to dogsit. Fortunately, his sister has been a long-standing customer with The Bark Rangers and her dogwalker, Harriet, will help out. After an incident with the dog, Dr. Ethan Black loses his temper and Harriet's stammer from childhood returns. Can Harriet overcome this Challenge working with Dr. Ethan Black? As I said earlier, this love story is another great one by Sarah Morgan. I think I say this with each new book that she releases in this series, but this one is my new favorite! It has the magic of Christmas mixed with unexpected romance and overcoming complicated pasts. A beautiful combination of the three made me giddy while reading this book. I kept forcing myself to stop every couple of chapters because I wanted to savor the book rather than speed through-which was a Challenge! I would absolutely recommend this book (and the other books in this series) to any adult reader who enjoys romance with comical moments. Also for readers who enjoy reading character development and overcoming the past to find themselves. This fast-paced book showed strong character development not only with Harriet, but with Ethan as well. I would not recommend this book for readers who may be sensitive to or offended by mild foul language, violence, and sexual scenarios. Please note: an electronic copy of this book was generously provided for free by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review (thank you!).

Sarah Morgan is one of my go to authors when I am looking for heartwarming, feel good love stories and she never fails to come through. Moonlight Over Manhattan is not only a heartwarming love story, it is a story about facing your fears and overcoming your difficulties in life. As a young child, Harriet had a terrible stuttering problem especially when facing conflict but as an adult she has it under control. That is until she meets Ethan. Ethan is a stressed out doctor, non pet person, who has agreed to take care of his sister's dog while she is handling a family crisis. Harriet is a dog walker but when Madi, the dog, tears up Ethan's house, she agrees to stay and help the dog adjust to her new surroundings. Ethan is not looking for a relationship and Harriet is working on building a new, independent life but the more time they share together, the closer they become. This story is fun watching them work through misunderstandings. I received this ARC from the author and publisher but all thoughts and feelings are my own.

Whenever I read a book by Ms Morgan, I know that I will be treated to a story that will not only be engaging, but also touching and thought provoking. This one delivered that and much more. If you have read the other stories in this series (recommended , but not necessary), you will remember sweet Harriet. She and her twin sister own a dog walking business in New York City. Harriet, whose childhood has not been a fairytale , has always depended on her sister and her brother to protect her from the rest of the world. Harriet is shy , and suffered from stuttering as a child, a handicap that comes back when she is stressed . Now that her siblings have significant others, Harriet has decided to spend Christmas on her own and has started a “Challenge Harriet” program. A challenge that not always turns out to be in her favor, but she’s determined to keep on going and as she does, she grows as a person. She meets Ethan , an ER physician when she ends up with a twisted ankle after a window escapade. Life is full of surprises , and when a client has an emergency and needs to leave her dog , Madi, with her clueless brother, Ethan, Harriet is asked to walk Madi while she is staying with Ethan. Now Harriet, has to deal with him and their first meeting is less than stellar. The story is engaging, and the characters very well develop. But what I liked best, is that this talented author , doesn’t give us a view of life that is all fluffy and and fairytales. A reminder that whatever we experience in our childhood , will affect us as adults. That parents can do a great deal of damage with verbal abuse. That you can’t make someone love you, no matter how much you try. But above all , that you should embrace life and have the courage not to be complacent. A truly heartbreaking but also heartwarming story that you will love. Once again, thank you , Ms Morgan, for a wonderful story about life, but also about hope, love and new beginnings. I was gifted this book. The opinions expressed are solely my own.

Sweet and Sexy. Yet another wonderful romance by Sarah Morgan. Harriet is a much braver person than she thinks she is. I certainly wouldn't want to take up the challenge to do something I found difficult everyday, I like my comfort zone too much for that! Harriet is a kind and compassionate woman and I enjoyed how she grew in confidence throughout the story and Dr Ethan Black is a fabulous hero. I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

Sometimes the hardest thing to do is stand on your own two feet. Such is the case with Harriett Knight in Moonlight in Manhattan. When her sister and brother find love of their own, Harriett challenges herself to do one new thing each day outside of her comfort zone. As she challenges herself, she realizes that the real challenge is living her life on her own terms. This is a fun, heartwarming Christmas tale. There are dogs, a grumpy surgeon, and best of all, love. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.

Favorite Quotes: Women do cook for themselves you know. You think when we’re on our own we sob into a lonely bowl of cereal? Envy, she decided, was a truly uncomfortable emotion. It said things about you that you didn’t want to hear. I never get sick…. Although of course now I’ve tempted fate and I’ll probably have bubonic plague by Monday, but I’ll worry about that later. I don’t want that on my conscience. I already have enough scars and baggage to deal with. Carrying any more will give me spinal problems. Right now I’d be happy to mate for five minutes. Mating for life seems an overly ambitious objective. They’re my specialty. Chocolate chip cookies. Eat them quickly. Men have been known to fight over them. My Review: Sarah Morgan continues to delight with Moonlight Over Manhattan, her latest installment of her From Manhattan With Love series. I have read and adored each and every one of these divinely written and cleverly endearing treasures. Sweet Harriet is on her own for the first time since her beloved twin sister and human buffer to the harshness of the world has found love and moved away. Harriet has devised a self-improvement plan for her Christmas present to herself by meeting a challenge or completing a difficult task each day between Thanksgiving and Christmas, to gift herself with courage. A rather ambitious and admirable plan in my opinion. And I enjoyed every step as Harriet battled herself while making significant inroads in facing her discomforts with sly humor and insightful observation. I adore Ms. Morgan’s complex yet lovably flawed characters as well as her amusing and deft word-craft. The witty banter and snappy quips flung between characters is always a tasty treat. I have smirked, laughed aloud, and sighed myself through each cleverly written book and as always, I am already eagerly awaiting the next arrival.
