Publisher's Summary

Olivia Shields is a new resident to Carlisle Bay, Connecticut, after having traveled the world as a professional ballet dancer. Dancing was her life. Chasing performance dreams is all she's ever known or planned for. Now, she is starting anew. She didn't expect to be a boutique manager at 31, but it's better than spinning out into the abyss of the unknown. Being in Carlisle has brought solace to her listless soul.

Brady Carlisle has recently returned to Carlisle Bay, his hometown. He has spent the last decade in California, designing and patenting surfboards, playing guitar, and singing for anyone who cared to listen. Becoming his own man, without relying on the Carlisle name and money is all he's ever wanted. He now owns a bait and tackle store by day and spends his evenings playing guitar on his deck or sailing along the bay or over the crystal blue waters of the Atlantic. 

They discovered love for the first time 13 years earlier when Olivia spent the summer before college living with her aunt in Carlisle Bay. Will the pain of the past keep them apart, or will moonlit summer evenings lead them back to each others' hearts?

A great second chance at love romance!

I listened to the audio version of this book. This was my first written by Angie Ellington. How did I miss her before? This was a great story. It is a second chance trope in which the characters, Olivia and Brady, had separated under puzzling circumstances (for Olivia). She really didn't know why the guy she loved so deeply called an end to it all. Years later, they meet again in the town that they met. The characters were really well developed. You could feel the growth the past years had given them. Olivia was reluctant to give Brady a chance at first. The resulting romance was realistic in it's pace. I loved both characters!
I also loved that there was a more minor romance going on between Olivia's aunt and her next door neighbor. Older people romance--yeah! It was very sweet how reluctant Aunt Jane was to think that a man could be romantically interested in her. Aunt Jane was a very fun character.
The narration by Meg Price was perfect for this book. Very pleasant to listen to.
I was given a copy of this audio book in return for my honest thoughts.

A Second Chance Romance

Great easy read that had an interesting although somewhat predictable story line. Characters were very real, likable,and interesting. This is the type of book you sit reading with a cup of tea and forget about life’s troubles. This is the first time I’ve read this author’s work and I will be looking at more of her books to enjoy. Time well spent reading this one for rom-com fans!

Great Second chance!

I love a great second chance at romance, and found this book by Angie Ellington to exceed my expectations. The storyline is wonderful and the characters are well developed. I was immediately pulled into the book and didn't want it to end. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator. Meg Price was perfect in her narration. She had the comedic timing perfect for the book. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review.

...enlightening and inspiring.

Second chances are the catch of the day. Dancing by the Moonlight is a tale of starting over, mending fences and discovering how to be happy. For Olivia and Brady young love blossomed into adult strife. Secrets severed their first chance. Will pride ruin their second? In life and love, it's the heartache that gives the strength to try again. Ellington is a pro at writing stories that are enlightening and inspiring. A heartwarming read.

Love at the Bay

Second chances are found all along in different formats in this sweet summer cozy story. Aunt June is someone we all know. Carlie is the gal pal we all need if we don't have her. Brady is drool-worthy & even Thad has a building appeal. I'm anxious for the second book next year to learn more about the Carlisle family & hopefully see fences mended. All the summer feels!

Narration was pleasant & engaging. I found Meg Price calming & yet she had good comedic timing!

Take me to the beach

Summer lasts all year if you read a fun romance mashup like Dancing by the Moonlight. Great characters, lots of details to help listeners feel like we’re there, & flirty romance. Meg Price’s voice is soothing & fun. Great pacing! I’ve listened to novellas by this author & loved them. Sweet & easy listening. She goes more in depth with characters in this novel & cant wait for book 2 next year. In the meantime, I’ll await her latest novella to hit Audible. I’ll definitely check out more by this narrator also.
