A posh-sounding woman meets her carousing neighbor and they do not get along well until a life-altering surprise walks in the door.
At first she helps out of human decency but then, after experiencing an empathic moment goes beyond simple helping to really stepping up to the plate (mixed cultural metaphor there).
Young’s ability to engage the reader’s sympathy is outstanding. I immediately identified with Grace, first against Logan and then later with everyone involved.
Gah! Her family of birth sounds absolutely awful; her mother a cankerous poison, her father an uninvolved, unemotional juggernaut and her brother a vicarious would-be rapist. I would also have left them behind.
One issue is Logan’s temper. It’s the temper that put him on prison protecting his sister. It’s his smarts that helped him survive prison though. And it is his conscience that is haunting him. But his temper is quick; it is as if he (and an awful lot of guys in fiction) lacks the emotional tool kit for dealing without intense anger. He never threatens Grace though, but they do fight.
When Grace helps him out with a family issue it is nice to see how well she meshes into a family situation even though hers is so awful. I love how she has created family with a group of friends and that they are so very tight.
I like the continuity and depth to this series in general. MOONLIGHT ON NIGHTINGALE WAY is as sexy, as is-my-ipod-meltingly hot as the other books I have read in this series. It’s explicit and still very well done. I kept finding more tasks to do so I could keep listening. There are no dandelions left in my lawn because of this book!
I like the series’ reader’s accents and her voice. I don’t think I hear any extraneous noises in the recording either.
I highly recommend this one!
