Moonlight on Nightingale Way (On Dublin Street #6)


Last in the Series

Logan from Echoes of Scotland Street is back with his own smoldering story, as the New York Times bestselling On Dublin Street series returns…

Logan spent two years paying for the mistakes he made. Now, he’s ready to start over. He has a great apartment, a good job, and plenty of women to distract him from his past. And one woman who is driving him to distraction…

Grace escaped her manipulative family by moving to a new city. Her new life, made to suit her own needs, is almost perfect. All she needs to do is find her Mr. Right—or at least figure out a way to ignore her irresistible yet annoying womanizer of a neighbor.

Grace is determined to have nothing to do with Logan until a life-changing surprise slowly begins turning the wild heartbreaker into exactly the kind of strong, stable man she’s been searching for. Only just when she begins to give into his charms, her own messy past threatens to derail everything they’ve worked to build…

My  Moonlight on Nightingale Way Review ...

Ah! The end of a great series.  Is always bitter sweet for me.

In this last book we get to find out more about Logan, whom is Shannon's sister.  We met Logan in Echoes in Scotland.  And this book starts off a few months after Logan is released from jail.

Grace Farquhar can come across a bit prim and proper but really she's just a girl who has a big heart and is super loyal to the people who she deems are family.  

One thing she hates are confrontations, so when her new neighbor is banging his way through Scotland and wrecking her order of things, she's finally had enough.

"I'm sleep deprived, and it's all your fault, you bloody wretched manwhore."

Logan's living his life to the fullest now that he's out of jail.  He has great friends, a great job and a super supportive loving sister.  What more could he want?  The minute he runs into Grace she's everything he wants but doesn't think he can have.  It's much easier to stick with his lothario ways.

Normally Grace is cool and calm but there is something about Logan that sets her off. She thinks she wants nothing to do with him but her friends and Logan's have a different plan for these two.  Grace and Logan are not friends, they're barely acquaintances but one day a young girl comes upon their doorstep and changes everything.

Grace has such a compelling need to help Logan with Maia.  It could be because there is a part of her that understands what Maia has gone through but in a very different way.

"Because I've been where you are-looking for family because the one I was born with let me down in a way you can't forgive."

After Maia, Logan and Grace are finally friends.  To Grace, Logan is so much more but her insecurities and doubts cause her not to see what's happening.  For Logan, once he truly saw the real Grace he knew he wanted her but his past has made him think he couldn't have her.  However, this doesn't mean he could curb his attraction to her. 

"But you"-he shook his head-"I can't walk away from you even if I wanted to.  And I don't want to. You are reality and sweet oblivion wrapped up in one annoyingly argumentative, always-bloody-right, classy, gorgeous-as-fuck package."

Grace and Logan are so super sweet together.  I loved them.  Thankfully with the help of their friends which is everyone from the On Dublin Street series and some newcomers they help these two realize that they need each other.  If it weren't for them these two might have never found their way together.

"I kind of like you , Logan MacLeod."  His grin was wicked and slow. "You kind of more than like me, Miss Grace Farquhar."

Gah! I truly adore this series.  From the first to the last it has a special place in my heart.  I am sad to see the end but know it has to happen.   I thought Grace and Logan were a great way to end the series. 

4.5 Goodbye Thumbs up!
