Publisher's Summary

Mattie Crockwell spends her evenings with the man of her dreams, Lord Ashton of Sinclair House. That he is a character in her historical Georgian romance novel is her little secret. She's read the same out-of-print book every night for months, anticipating the moment when she settles in for sleep and dreams of the passionate embrace of Lord Ashton. But sleep eludes her one night, and she can't find her way to her dreams and Lord Ashton. A full moon compels her to wish...for a real live man like Lord Ashton.

William Sinclair of Ashton House, escapes from one of his mother's interminable matchmaking dinners one night and steps into the garden to wish on the moon for he knows not what. A woman who can love him and not his fortune?

Mattie and William have no idea that wishing on the moon at the same time for the same thing has consequences, but they soon discover that a full moon will grant them their heart's desire when Mattie finds herself with the man of her dreams...in 1825. Can Mattie survive life in the Georgian era? If not, can William bear to let her return to her own time?

    "Romance In Time"

    The story is very romantic. Also about time travel, all involving the moon. I know, sounds crazy. But that's what makes this story so different. Imagine being dropped in a Jane Austin novel and without the 21st century modern conveniences. It's real eye opener. It's also a real tear jerker. And in some parts very funny. This is definitely worth a credit.

    "A sweet story aided by a most enjoyable narration"
    Would you listen to Moonlight Wishes in Time again? Why?

    More a sweet fantasy than a story of the paranormal or science fiction, I liked the characters and wanted to stay with the story to see what became of them. I didn't have as much trouble absorbing the time travel aspect as I did the good and kindly gentleman of 1825 England who accepted it so easily and completely, almost as quickly as it was told to him. But whenever my mind felt events had turned too much toward the unbelievable, the narrator brought me right back with clear and distinct voices that set my disbelief aside and put me into a realm--and a romance--of what seemed like real people.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending pleasantly tied up all the loose ends and left me with a feeling of satisfaction. Overall, I definitely liked it. At the finish, I felt like the storyline when combined with an excellent narration had left me with a sense of light fun, a slightly different slant on happy tales of adventure for the sake of true love, and a dose of hope for sweet romance--sometime, somewhere, however one might get there.


    What about Jane McLaughlin’s performance did you like?

    I thoroughly enjoyed the narration. Different voices were so clear, distinct and consistent that I never had a second thought as to which of the several characters was speaking. The pace seemed just right and helped me absorb the story thoroughly, without any of the need to backtrack that sometimes happens with an audible book if you aren't giving it your full attention. I thought the narrator did especially well changing from the voice of a contemporary American character to the voices and accent of English characters 200 years in the past, and I never doubted which perspective was which. In fact, when the storyline seemed to stretch my imagination a bit too far, it was the narration that brought me back to the author's fictional world in a way I could picture and appreciate.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A modern woman finds the man of her dreams in 1825.

    "light and entertaining"

    This was a cute and entertaining story. If you are looking for something riveting this is not it. It is however, a light easy read, with excellent narration.

    Story
    "WHAT WOULD YOU GIVE UP FOR LOVE?"

    If you're in the mood for a sweet easy-going time travel romance that has a few kisses, nice characters, a plot twist and a HEA then look no further 'cause here is your book.

    This is one of those 50/50 types of listens - the ones that you mostly like the storyline apart from a few 'hang-ups' with it like it could have been more romantic, sexy, tender, fun and if Mattie (heroine) loved William (hero) sooo much then why was she always talking about going back 'cause she missed all the modern technologies. Could easily have been VYA. Slow narrator so I doubled her up (speed wise of course!).

    Worth a credit? It's one that yes it entertained me for a while, but I could easily have lived without ever hearing it - so it's sadly a No from me.

    My favorite books are 'Historical Romance'. A good book takes you away from your everyday life & puts you in the middle of an adventure.

    Story
    "Tame!"
    What would have made Moonlight Wishes in Time better?

    The author was so wrapped up in talking and internal thoughts & the story's process that she failed to put the dynamic of romance in the book. It is a very mild HR story, appropriate for a young girl. I wouldn't really qualify it as a true romance book but a simple time travel story.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Bess McBride again?

    Probably not.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator did good character voices well and kept a good pace, but lacked real emotion.


    Any additional comments?

    It was rather boring.
