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?

Second chance summer romance

Sweet Clean summer romance! Characters were realistic and relatable. I think I fell in love with Brady! Grab a glass of wine sit by the fire and completely lose yourself in a small town in Connecticut. Meg Price did an amazing job. I can’t imagine anyone else as Olivia and she even managed to sound sexy as hell as Brady

Angie Ellington never disappoints and Meg Price is the perfect narrator!

I just love Angie Ellington. She is one of my favorite authors. Every book of hers is a feel-good romance that makes me feel like I’m reading a Hallmark movie, or in this case, listening to one! I especially love audiobooks and getting to listen to this one in audio version was perfect to refresh my memory of this fantastic story before I read its sequel, that’s about to come out! Brady Carlisle and Olivia Shields have such a sweet story and supporting characters are lovely. Ellington shines best when combining all the details of characters with the appealing setting and happily ever after story. To top off this heartwarming story, Meg Price’s narration ties it up warmly. She’s a perfect voice for this Carlisle Bay introduction!

Small Town Romance at its best

This is much more than a love story between Olivia and Brady and how they find love again after 13 years apart. It tells the story of all those close to Oliva and Brady. It is a season of growth and relationships for many in Carlisle Bay. The storytelling by Angie Ellington as she ties everyone stories together combined with the excellent narration from Meg Price makes this an enjoyable, sweet romance all the way around. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Second Chance Romance

This is one of those short and sweet romances that I just adore. The characters were done well and easy to like but I found the story itself lacking. It could be because the story is too sort but the challenges the characters life was underdone. Still a great read with an awesome narrator Meg Price. This book was given to me in exchange for my honest review.

Second chance at romance

A sweet, clean romance of second chances. Years after a summer fling, Olivia and Brady meet once again. Working thru the hurts and trust issues of the past as well as current problems, they are able to rekindle their romance. Time certainly can change people. I received a free copy of this book, and this review reflects my honest and unbiased opinion.

Great narration

Dancing by the Moonlight is a light PG/PG-13 beach read. They story ends in a good place even though it's obviously not finished. There were a lot of characters introduced and I hoped it would turn into a couple concurrent HFNs, but it didn't to the extent I'd hoped. There's always book two.... The narration was really good. There was one "storm" sound effect that sounded out of place because it was the only one, but overall I really liked the performance.

Second chances and questions answered

Olivia is back and so is Brady. They've both grown up and get to revisit their romance from years ago and work through their issues. Olivia is skeptical and who could blame her, Brady finally opens up and explains what happened. The story really evolved and was easy to follow. Loved the characters, especially Olivia's aunt! Can't wait to listen to the continuation of the story in Dancing by the Christmas Lights.
