My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Moonlit Whisper: An Irish Romance by Amy McKinley is a novel in the Moonlit Destination series. This is a short, contemporary sports romance by an incredible author. Although part of a series the book can be read as a stand-alone. I loved this second chance romance. The characters had everything against them and yet I was behind them the whole way.
Although it is a novella the book doesn’t feel like it is missing anything at all. It is a well written and interesting story. It has a natural flow to it that makes it a nice and easy read. I would certainly recommend this story, and series, to anyone who is a fan of the genre.

Moonlit Whisper: An Irish Romance, is part of the Moonlit Destination series by Amy Mckinley.

Moonlight Whisper is a novella that can be devoured in an afternoon, which is handy as once i started reading i didn’t want to put it down.
The main characters, Fiona and Connor, were childhood sweethearts and best friends who were forced to split up when Connor followed his dream to play football. Fiona was crushed but eventually chose to move on. Of course Connor returns, but he finds Fiona with a new life and a new man.

This story is a feel-good romance that will have you hooked. This isn’t my first book by Amy Mckinley and in my experience she does not disappoint, and she certainly doesn’t here. The chemistry between Fiona and Connor is there from the start and you just know that they are meant to be together. As is the way with all good stories, these things never run smoothly, and these are the type of characters that you are rooting for throughout the whole book.

Moonlit Whisper: An Irish Romance is a fantastic contemporary romance novella by Amy McKinley. This novella was previously published in With Love From Venice (Voyages Of The Heart Anthology). Amy McKinley is an author that I’ve now been a huge fan of for a couple of years and it’s always an excitement to get to read more of her work. I absolutely loved this novella and devoured it in one sitting as I just didn’t want to put it down.
I could easily have read a full length novel containing the characters Fiona and Connor as I adored their story and could have read so much more about them. This is a second chance romance. Connor and Fiona were childhood sweethearts when Connor’s mum moved him away from his home in Ireland to a new life in America. Now Connor is back in Ireland to complete his final year of university, only Fiona is now engaged to Connor’s former best friend.
This was a great read that I was hooked by in the very first chapter and as the author is such a fantastic storyteller, I was hooked throughout desperate to know how Connor and Fiona’s story ended. Did they get the HEA that they both deserved? Can Fiona forgive Connor for leaving her? Well, I’m not going to spoil the story for you. Give this great novella, (and this fantastic author) a chance and lose yourself in Connor and Fiona’s story.

Moonlit Whisper is a short and sweet second chance at love novelette that can be read as a standalone story. Fiona (Fio) is engaged to childhood friend Lach but when Connor returns from living across the pond Fio is torn between her new love and her old childhood sweetheart. Connor had to leave Dublin to live with his Mum but he hated leaving behind Fio and he definitely never forgot her. When Connor returns as a fourth year transfer student at Trinity to play football he is determined to have Fio in his arms again and this time for ever. Fio also never forgot the boy who used to climb through her bedroom window and the more time they spend together with Fio tutoring Connor the closer they become. This was an enjoyable and engaging short read with some great characters. The chemistry between Fiona and Connor really came across in the story as did the competition and tension between Connor and Lach. The narrative flowed well and I felt immersed in the storyline, so much so that I could not put the book down.

Anything I read by Amy Mckinley is awesome. This short story was probably one of my favorites. This was such a sweet book of lost love reclaimed. I love how easy Amy’s stories come together. She can instantly get me involved with any story and I can’t put it down till it’s finished. I ate this book up and can’t wait till I get the next book she writes.

5 out of 5 stars

Moonlit whisper written by Amy McKinley is a short romance story about first loves and second chances. I simply loved this story it was sweet and innocent. The characters where well written and the way they played off each other was awesome. Ms. McKinley has a new fan in me and I cannot wait to dig into her books.

They were next-door neighbors who relied and each other. Her life was great but his life sucked with an abusive father. He had to move with his mom and left her. Now he is back and he wants her back. Will he win the girl back he left years ago? Has she moved on?

I highly recommend this book and author…

Moonlit Whisper: An Irish Romance (Moonlit Destination Series) by Amy McKinley – Review by Francis O’Sullivan

Moonlit Whisper (An Irish Romance)Moonlit Whisper by Amy McKinley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Moonlit Whisper is a novella in Amy McKinley’s Moonlit Destination Series. The series collects short romantic reads set in different locations – in this case, it is Ireland. Moonlit Whisper can be enjoyed as a standalone – it doesn’t follow on at all from Moonlit Mirage, which is connected to the Gray Ghost series.
Set in Dublin, Moonlit Whisper tells the story of Fiona, Connor and Lachlan. Childhood friends, the trio is split up when Connor accepts a football (soccer) scholarship in the US in order to help his mum escape from domestic abuse. Old enough to return to Ireland without his mother, Connor is back and keen to pick up where he left off with Fiona.
It’s a classic love triangle, with Fiona stuck in the middle forced to choose between her two friends while they compete with each other both on and off the football field. There are many factors that complicate things and a few wee mysteries to piece together.
I would say, as a Destination book, more could have been made of the setting, but we do get to explore a bit of Dublin as the characters figure things out between them.
For me, this is a four-star read. It’s great if you want a quick burst of romance in one sitting!

Moonlit Whisper: An Irish Romance is part of the Moonlit Destination series by Amy McKinley. I absolutely loved this romantic novelette and didn’t want it to end. The story line between Fiona and Connor may seem so typical but seemed so special while reading it. Fiona is heart broken when Connor up and leaves with his mother, leaving her behind. Years later Fiona finds herself tutoring one of her father’s football players only to find out it’s Connor. Connor is determined to not lose Fiona this time around. The author does a wonderful job weaving such a beautiful story into such a short read. I look forward to reading others by this author.
