Chasing Moonbeams on Merriment Bay by Emily Harvale **Book Review** @rararesources @emilyharvale

Happy Saturday all!

Excited to share with you today my review for another book in this charming series!

My Thoughts

A cozy Romance sprinkled with a compelling mystery. Emily Harvale Has once again captured my heart with her magical storytelling. Delightful characters, a lovely setting, and a captivating story. This is part of the Merriment Bay series which is interconnected with the Winter House series. The book could possibly beread as a standalone, but I strongly encourage you to read the previous books in both series. This book continues the story of the Devin women. Three generations of strong women: Cat, Kyra, and Mary. The story also reveals a mystery hiding in the floors of Devon Manor. I know I’m being a bit vague but I don’t want to spoil this book or any of the previous books for anybody. Just know this is a charming story filled with whimsy, romance, Mystery, friendship, new beginnings, difficult choices, and above all family.

Once again I found myself completely swept up into the lives of these fabulous characters. It was nice to see Cat so happy. It was also nice to see Mary start to heal. And Kyra? Oh to be 18 again… completely understood why Cat was trying to steer her in a specific direction. But I do think Kyra is a smart girl and will ultimately make a wise choice. This book had a little more mystery to it then most of the others in the series and I thought that was clever and fun. Excited to see what Emily has up her sleeve for the next books in this delightful series.

*** Big thank you to Emily Harvale for my gifted copy of this book. All opinions are my own. ***
