Amy McKinley is becoming one of my go-to stand out authors! She continues to create reads that captivate you and bring you along on her characters journeys. While this is a quick read it doesn’t lack in anything its full to the brim with romance, steaminess, suspense & action! This is a fast-paced read that flows effortlessly and is well developed with amazing characters and a storyline that draws you in from the very beginning. I can’t wait to read more from this series and this author!
Cade and Nadia meet in some circumstances a couple of years later they find each other again. Cade why did Nadia do what she did why didn’t she stay. There is a connection between these two characters. Action, drama and supsnse all filled into a small Novella its definitely worth a read.
Moonlit Mirage is a novel in the Moonlit Destination series by Amy McKinley. This is my first novel by this author.
Nadia helps Cade escape from his car when he is driven off the road. After she slips away and Cade still wants to find her years later.
When they meet again years later, they are drawn to each other.
But Nadia has a secret that could tear their relationship apart.
Even though I haven’t read other books by this author, which build up to this book, I really enjoyed it. It was such an amazing read and I am glad I gave it a chance.
I look forward to reading by this author.
Moonlight Mirage: A Cook Island Romance a five-star dream of a read. I was so excited to see this author had a new series as I had been a huge fan of the Grey Ghost series, and I loved this one. It has the same fast pace, a story that doesn’t let up until the absolute last page, the characters that will keep you on your toes and will make you fall so deep in love with them. Nadia is such a complex character, she has secrets and knows will ruin her happiness, but sometimes you need to risk it. Cade he just made me smile with his fearlessness and determination. Do not miss this story, even if you haven’t read anything by this author again give it a go as you will love it.

Moonlit Mirage: A Cook Islands Romance is part of the Moonlit Destination Series by Amy McKinley. Amy McKinley out did herself once again. This is a short story that has romance and suspense around every turn of the page. This story is about Cade and Nadia. Their story is complicated by their past. Will Nadia overcome her past and not let it destroy her future? Will Cade be able to be Nadia? You will have to read this story to find out what happens.
Moonlit Mirage was a short quick read. I didn’t really know what I was getting myself into reading this.
This book was a rockin rollercoaster of events. I thought the book was well written. Very well written actually.
Sometimes I feel an author tries to hard to fit so much into such a short book but this was not the story here.
This book had so much suspense and I just kept scrolling to see what was going to happen next.
I really enjoyed reading about Nadia and Cade. This book was a great read!

As a fan of Amy McKinley’s ‘Gray Ghost’ series I was looking forward to this first book in her new ‘Moonlit Destination’ series and this novel definitely did not disappoint. A fairly short book at only 80 pages it is packed full of action and has a great storyline. Nadia Bennett has Cade Malone under surveillance when she acts against her orders and rescues him when he has a car accident. They both share a once in a lifetime connection but although the chemistry between the two is instant and reciprocated due to the reasons why Nadia was there at the time, saving him will have to do and she has to walk away. However Cade never forgets the ‘underwater angel’ who saved him all those years ago and so when a chance encounter under the moonlight brings the couple together again he is determined not to let her get away this time. Nadia also recognises their chemistry and can not walk away again and so risks everything to be with him, unfortunately a dark secret from her past could destroy their relationship.
This novel had me gripped from page one and I could not put it down, full of adventure, excitement, suspense, past secrets and romance it is a fast paced read, all with the breathtaking Cook Islands as it’s backdrop. The author takes you on an emotional rollercoaster but thankfully it does have a happy ever after ending. For readers of the ‘Gray Ghost’ novels there is a crossover between the books however you do not need to have read them to enjoy this book. I look forward to reading further books in this series by Amy McKinley.
Moonlit Mirage: A Cook Islands Romance (Moonlit Destination Series) Starting off by saving the life of a man named Cade after his car is run of a bridge, Nadia’s life changed, it was no accident she happened to be in the right place at the right time. Five years later. Nadia and Cade cross paths again, only this time she doesn’t disappear into the night. Although a short read it’s packed with suspense, I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story and am glad I have found a fab new author to follow. Great read five stars.
Oh my god I absolutely LOVED this book!! Amy McKinley is one of my favourite authors so I was really excited to read this from her and it was everything I would expect from one of her novels! It may have only been a short read but it was jam packed full of story! The action started out straight away for Cade and Nadia – the main characters and I fell in love with them both straight away! I also loved that there was a little cross over between this book and the Gray Ghost series – but even if you haven’t read those it will not matter this story is amazing as a standalone! (I wholly recommend the other series though also!) Some great twists and turns in the story meant I was on the edge of my seat the whole way through – and for a short story, as mentioned earlier, I think that the author did an amazing job of creating such an exciting read!
After a car accident forces Cade off a bridge, underwater angel Nadia saves his life. When Nadia disappears after the rescue Cade fears he won’t find her again.
Moonlit Mirage is an exciting story that kept me hooked from the very start. The author packs a lot into this short story, and I absolutely loved the characters of Cade and Nadia, they have a strong connection from the very beginning. There are some unexpected twists and turns throughout which make you want to keep on reading.
I would love a follow up book to explore the characters more as they both have much more to give.
If you are looking for a short story to devour in one sitting , I would definitely recommend this.
