Author Amy Mckinley is one of my favorite authors, she always takes us places we all want to be in such detail. Not all of us get the chance to visit other countries and reading is one of the easiest ways to do that. This is why I like authors that can transport us there without much effort. It is one of the reasons why I love to read, she gives us such a sense of being there and adding great characters along the way just add to our enjoyment.

Moonlit Kiss by Amy McKinley was a wonderful quick read with vibrant descriptions and likeable characters. Sergio and Gianna seemed to just fit right together and made for a sweet romance. Set in Venice, I could easily picture what the author was writing about and I enjoyed the “scenery”. This is the third book I’ve read as part of the Moonlit Destination Series and of the three is by far my favorite.

I’m thrilled to have discovered Amy McKinley through reading Moonlit Kiss. As my first book from this author, I didn’t know what to expect, and was a little hesitant to start, but let me say that I was blown away. The way this author develops her main characters, Giana and Sergio, and draws you right into Venice with them, is second to none. The tragic history behind this love story just gives the characters more reason to fight for their happy ending. The author has a way with knowing how to include just enough detail to draw you in and keep the reader enthralled from start to finish. I can’t say enough goods things about this book. If I had to make one minor suggestion, I would have liked to see more Italian and French language squeezed in here and there, given the characters lineage, but that’s just my preference. Don’t miss this book!

Not surprising at all that Amy McKinley yet again blew my mind with this breathtaking story of love and a little bit of suspense and intrigue. This Author just has a way of describing the scenery of the book that you don’t see every day. You can feel her heart and soul in her writing. And Moonlit Kiss is yet again a great example of Amy’s amazing work. Moonlit Kiss is the story of Gianna and Sergio and it takes place in the beautiful world of Venice.

Italian-American Gianna Bellini has come to Venice to restore and complete a fresco mural for Francesca Marcello whom she met in the States. Part of the job description is to restore that painting to its original splendor and then to complete the third section which had not been completed.
Upon arrival to Venice, Gianna has an unsettling experience as she walks the streets and feels like this isn’t her first time in Venice. After a gondola tour of the city provided by her sponsor, Gianna has an experience that leaves her disoriented. When she pulls herself back to reality, she finds herself in the arms of a handsome Italian man, Sergio.
Feeling an instant attraction, Gianna and Sergio begin dating. Gianna has vivid dreams of a time a century before when a forever love was abruptly taken from a couple. Can Sergio hold onto her as these dreams keep haunting her? Will their love be the forever love that puts these spirits to rest?
This is a remarkable story of the past and the present laying the foundation for a love that can only be described as predetermined by the fates. Amy McKinley does it again! I have enjoyed every book that I have read that is written by her. I will keep coming back for more of her stories.

This is a fun, easy read, with plenty of romance and suspense. I am a bit of a sucker for a bit of tragedy and a bit of mystery, and of course, love conquers all. I also loved how Venice really came to life, having visited previously, and I loved all of the historical details, the old art, and the cultural elements that continue today. The ghostliness and the thinness of the veil of time were really intriguing and transportive, and I loved where the plot ended up. I have not read this author before but I look forward to reading other books by Amy McKinley soon!

This is my first book by this author, and you will not be let down. This book will take you on an adventure with romance, suspense, and mystery. I could not put the book down from start to finish. Gianna goes to Italy when she is hired to restore a painting. The moment she arrives in Venice its a sense of Deja vu she can’t place, and an eerie familiarity she cannot explain. When she is rescued by Sergio everything takes an unexplained and unexpected turn. Gianna and Sergio have a romantic chemistry from the moment they meet ,and together they unravel the mysteries surrounding past and present that will ultimately determine their future.. This book takes you on whirlwind not knowing what to expect or where things will go, but its an amazing ride the entire way.

Page-turner! Moonlit Kiss: A Venice Romance by Amy McKinley is another installment in her Moonlit Destination Series and was my favorite yet! I wasn’t quite expecting this to be a romantic suspense, but I’m so glad it was—I was enthralled with the story all the way through!
Gianna is on assignment for a mural project in Venice and from the moment she steps foot there, finds herself feeling a strange familiarity she can’t explain. The feeling only gets stronger when she meets Sergio! Can she find love amidst these strange feelings? Why does everything feel so familiar? Read on to find out!
McKinley has a way of transporting you right into the scene with characters and, as always, develops the characters in a way you feel you really get to know them. The unraveling of this story made this an excellent and highly recommended read!

I wish I could give more stars! The more I read of Amy McKinley’s works the more I love them! Lives that ended in tragedy, souls lost in time searching for each other through the power of their love bond. Trying to blend the past and the present into a new romance that will end the suffering of these lost lovers. Of course we are also in Venice! The descriptions of the beauty and character of the towns, buildings and surrounding culture take you across the world just before you are plunged back in time. The romance between Gianna and Sergio is passionate, sexy and soul deep. Pick up this story! You will be really missing a fantastic read if you don’t!

Her most recent novel, Moonlit Kiss by Amy McKinley has written yet another story that makes it hard to put down from the moment you start. Amy proves yet again in writing this novel that she can write all forms of romance novels, with a historical twist making the novel a quick and interesting read.
As soon as she arrives in the beautiful Venice, Gianna knows that something is amiss. Using foreshadowing and glimpses into the past, Amy hooks the reader in the very first chapter, with each chapter bringing additional confusion until all questions are answered in the end. The steamy connection between the main characters is an added bonus to the reader as well!

Moonlit Kiss is possibly one of the greatest stories I have ever read. While it is shorter then Ms. McKinley’s other books she still provided us with fantastic characters, suspense, danger, romance, and she gave us a story that takes place in the beautiful scenery of Venice. Per usual Ms. McKinley captures her readers in the fist chapter and her word flow draws us in deeper and deeper, but this time she draws us in so deep that you’ll feel like your on the cobblestone streets or the watery canals of Venice yourself. Ms. McKinley’s writing style flows so easily that I finished this novella in one sitting. So if your looking for a new series to read I highly recommend Ms. McKinley’s Moonlit Destination series, but if your looking for just a beautiful short story to read this summer then I highly recommend Moonlit Kiss.

Moonlit Kiss by Amy McKinley was a very good read with a good storyline and good characters. I have read other books by this author that I loved but, didn’t have the same reaction to this one. However, I did enjoy the book but, it took me a few chapters to get into it and it was a slow burn for me. I guess that’s a good thing because as your reading, you think eh…it’s ok but then it gets good lol
The main characters Gianna and Sergio have never met before but once Sergio steps in to help Gianna when she falls there is an instant attraction. They feel like they have met before but, neither of them could remember meeting. Gianna has never been to Venice but everything seems so familiar to her. Even back streets she takes without having to look at the map. The main reason Gianna is in Venice is for a job to restore an old painting. She jumped at the chance to do it. Then she realizes one panel isn’t finished. Who will finish the original painting. I’m sure you will enjoy this read. I’m glad I kept reading to see what the book was about. This book is a stand alone and can be read as one but the other books in the series are definite “don’t want to miss out on” books.

Gianna Bellini is an artist, as well as working on her own projects, she also restores art as well, it has always been a dream of hers to visit Italy and in particular Venice and Rome, so when she is sought out for a position restoring and completing a century-old fresco in Venice, she can think of nothing she would enjoy more, so she packs her bags and heads out on the first available flight. On her first evening there, she decides to go out and explore the city in the moonlight before heading to the apartment she will be stating in, but as she takes in the sights and although she does feel safe, she also feels an eerie familiarity with the city and hasn’t a need for the map she has already pulled up on her phone, all too soon, she arrives in the Piazza San Marco and decides to stop for a bite to eat in one of the restaurants and watch life passing in the Piazza as she enjoys a glass of wine and the orchestral music in the background.
After she finishes, she calls the woman who hired her to let her know that she has made it to Venice safely and that she will start work the next day, however employer has other ideas and has organised a Gondola ride around the city for her instead as a way of inspiring her creativity, Gianna thanks her and heads to the villa. As she walks, she becomes turned around as a dog crawls in from the sea, but when she hears a man crying out for a woman, she cannot help but respond, however, when she sees him, he too is familiar to her, but when he walks her to the villa, she thinks nothing more of it when she sees the fresco she will be working on in the moonlight before she prepares to go to bed.
The next morning Gianna prepares a cup of coffee and decides to take a look at the fresco in the daylight while she drinks it, she then reads the note which her employer has left her recommending the pains she will need in her work and decides to put the order in a the recommended shop before heading out on her tour. The gondolier takes her round the canals as he tells her about some of the history of the city and the sights he points out to her, she takes some photographs and immerses herself in the lessons until it comes to and end, when she is just about to get out of the gondola, she is crippled by a bout of sickness which leaves her dizzy and disoriented and about to plunge into the cold waters when a pair of strong arms surround her and pick her up. Gianna immediately feels a sense of comfort within the mystery man’s arms and doesn’t want him to let her go and this is heightened when she starts to talk to him. He introduces himself as Sergio Vitale and they agree to spend lunch together so he can keep an eye on her.
As the meal progresses they talk and cannot deny that they are attracted to each other, so when they swap phone numbers, it is with the intention of seeing each other again. As the days pass and turn to weeks, Gianna spends time with her work and with Sergio, their relationship blossoms, but Gianna is plagued with vivid dreams which seem too real and as she talks about the fresco with Sergio she cannot understand how she will finish it, all the while the the dreams become more vivid and they start to encroach on her waking self as well. Will Gianna and Serdio be able to find out what the final panel should look like, or will one of the historical stories of Venice repeat itself once again? This is a romance with a historical twist where past and present collide in a mysterious puzzle which needs to be solved and will keep you guessing until the end.
This is such a beautiful book to read. The author does an amazing job of building the scene so you feel like you are actually in Venice and experiencing all the things our leading lady Gianna is seeing and feeling. This is a romance but I love how this romance comes across as a love that was created years before. You are taken on a breath taking ride which leaves you questioning things you thought and falling in love with the people who lived in Venice in the past as well as the present.
Gianna was hired to help restore a beautiful piece of art. Created years ago but an artist and pictured his love for a woman. However their love wasn’t meant to be and they both died tragically. While Gianna is working on this she experiences dreams and visions of the people in their past lives. Who they were, why they couldn’t be together and the heartbreak then both suffered all helps her feel the complete story. While Gianna is working she meets a guy called Sergio. The attraction between them is instant and when they solve the puzzle of the missing part of the picture together you have to think is their meeting and romance coincidence or is it part of a higher plan? Is fate finally allowing the love that should have happened the first time to blossom or will the spirits of the past stop it all over again.

Moonlit Kiss was an enjoyable 4-star read. Amy’s books always find a way of grabbing the reader and making them want to read more and more. I enjoyed the flow of this book and the fact that it took place in Venice. The history that is described is really neat and makes you feel like you were right there alongside Gianna experiencing it firsthand. After Gianna lands a job restoring a century-old fresco painting in Venice she packs her bags and travels to Italy to begin the restoration. Once she arrives, she feels the eerie familiarity of the city and realizes she has been here, but not in her current lifetime. When local Sergio rescues Gianna after a mishap near a canal-side café, the two begin a friendship that turns to more. As Gianna progresses on the restoration project, she turns to her new relationship to help with an important missing piece and to help with haunting dreams of the past and events of the present. I really enjoyed this story and I did not see the ending coming! If you enjoy a bit of romance with some suspense added then I would highly recommend this book!

I started reading Amy McKinley for the first time with this series. While the first two books were quickies in reading time-wise, this one was a bit longer. I enjoyed reading Gianna and Sergio’s story. The way that Mckinley describes the locations, *insert a chief kiss here* paints a pretty picture. One that made me feel like I was actually there with Gianna. I would definitely recommend this book.

3.5 stars This is a standalone story full of romance. Gianna is in Venice to restore a family fresco painting, however, from the moment she arrives it feels like she has come home, even more so once she meets the handsome Sergio. The story blends the present day and a tragic past through dreams and flashbacks experienced by Gianna. There are still mysteries surrounding the past and it appears that history may be repeating itself. The build up of the story was engaging and maintained a level of suspense that kept me reading. I struggled to connect with Gianna or Sergio, I just didn’t feel like I got to know them very well. Although I was pulled along by their love story, I didn’t feel like I watched them fall in love as there was an insta-love kind of relationship and it was all interlinked with the flashbacks.

I am still fairly new to Amy’s writing. Moonlit Kiss was beautiful in every way from the writing to the romance of Sergio and Gianna. But I can’t forget the third character in this romance, the City of Venice. This romance had more than I was expecting, there was a little mystery that kept me glued to the pages. Plus, the way Amy described the city of Venice was just another thing I fell in love with besides Sergio and Gianna. I looking forward to reading the other books in this series and checking out more books by this author.

Moonlit Kiss is from the Moonlit Destination Series by Amy McKinley. All of the books in this series stand alone well. This book takes place in Venice with Gianna coming from the states to restore artwork. She immediately experiences deja vu and a feeling as if she has come home. She meets the handsome Sergio who is a doctor and immediately feels at home with him. This story tells of their love for each other. There is also a mystery into circumstances surrounding their friends that draws them in unbeknownst to them. This book has romance, paranormal, and mystery all into one. It was a fun read!

Honesty, this book was so amazing from beginning to end, I pretty much read it thru a 24 hour day, I just kept wanting more and more and to basically be in Venice! The author truly has a natural talent not only for an amazing story and novel but the descriptions they use to describe the art and landscapes of Venice is truly what captured my heart and my mind from the very start.
I love romance stories and anything of the sort. This novel was my first time reading by this amazing author. And this most certainly will not my be my last.
It wasn’t just the art descriptions that hooked me but also the characters! Gianna and the man who she meets in perhaps dare to say random act of being heroic. But is life really that common where you meet someone thru an even that you may never have met other wise? Is there truly reasons behind why things happen to you that you may be unable to explain?
I think the characters Gianna and Sergio had these thoughts from when their eyes first met in their daring encounter. I think based on what I felt they felt they knew some how even though at the time they could not explain it they had felt these exact feelings in that moment before. But the question was how?
As I continued to read on, the story just captivated me to read more and more and I yearned for more and what was to come. This was a work of art itself. The story of how it progresses thru the tale of the time in Venice it was honestly so amazing and beautiful and I was truly sent to another world…perhaps dare to say not even in this life time.
This author truly is amazing and I have no words to describe their creative and artistic ability that would do them justice.
This will not be my last but more less my first of many. I want more and I already want more novels by Amy McKinley.
She has an gift to touch an reader, in a way that feels like a beautiful painting being made with every stroke made, more beauty just keeps flowing form the brush to the paper or canvas
Pick up this novel and read it! You will fall in love over and over again. That is a promise 🙂

Moonlit Kiss: A Venice Romance (Moonlit Destination Series) by Amy McKinley. I have never read a book from Ms Amy that I have not liked. Amy knows what genre works for her and she does it really well. This romance suspense story takes us through the cobblestone pathways, water canals and centuries old buildings and art of beautiful Venice. I have visited Italy, so it was so easy to envision all that Amy’s rich narrative provided. There is mystery and suspense which just adds another dimension to this already wonderful read. This is most definitely my favourite book by Amy to date.

For me, this was the most beautiful book I’ve read in quite awhile. This book was beautiful as it brought to light just what makes Italy a great country. The scenes bring you closer to being in Italy itself as the author’s words transcend you there through the pages. The story wrapped around the scenery draws you in. This is one of the best books in a long time: Pick up your copy today!

It is a fantastic romantic suspense, with mystery, sizzle, dramatic developments, intriguing characters, and enticing storyline.

Gianna has just arrived in Venice for the job of her dreams. She is going to be restoring a mural. But, as soon as she arrives in Venice, it is like she has been there before even though she never has. Weird things keep happening to her. When she becomes ill and a doctor saves her, it is an instant connection. But why does it feel like she knows him somehow?
Sergio is at the café when Gianna becomes dizzy and stays with her as she recovers. There is an instant connection that he doesn’t quite understand but he wants to follow where his heart is leading him. As weird occurrences happen around Gianna, he is realizing that the superstitions and folklore of Venice may have more truth to them than her realized.
This book has a supernatural feel to it with the spirits of the past intertwining with the mortals of the present. It made for a unique story that I enjoyed reading. The story wove the two realms together in a romantic, yet eye-opening, way…which made for an entertaining story.

Moonlit Kiss: A Venice Romance (Moonlit Destination Series) Amy McKinley 4 out of 5 stars
If Amy McKinley wrote it, I am going to read it! I definitely enjoyed Moonlit Kiss but I would be lying if I said that it didn’t take me a bit to get into. Now, don’t get me wrong, I can’t think of a single thing wrong with this book which is a prime example of why I will read anything by this author. I think I just have an attachment to her Gray Ghost series! Moonlit kiss had a lot of great supporting characters that made the story for me! The imagery is enough to transport you on a vacation and once I let myself be transported, I didn’t want to put the book down. Another win for Amy McKinley, 4 out of 5 stars from me.

I have read a few of Ms. McKinley and I am hooked. The characters are amazing and well written. I loved the way these characters played off each other. Again Ms. McKinley did it again with her description of Italy and the cobble stones. Gianna Bellini is an artist and conservator and lands her dream job in Venice to restore and complete a century-old fresco painting, she packs her bags and hops the first flight to Italy. While walking the cobble stones she felt Deja’vu she has been to this wonderful floating city before. Venetian native Sergio Vitale rescues Gianna from a chilling plunge after a misstep at a canal-side café. She is making great progress on the restoration of the painting but as she works she finds that fresco painting is missing a panel. As these two get closer she turns to Sergio for help. While trying to discover the fresco painting Gianna is having these dreams with haunting whispers where century-old Venetians have met their end. Can Gianna and Sergio discover where the missing panel? Can Gianna fight her destiny as Sergio fights for a future that includes Gianna in it? You need to read this story to find out what happens… Tracy
