Sharon Leslie has slowly rebuilt her life from the ashes of her marriage. She lost everything. Even the music that had always been in her soul. But she saved her children from enduring the anger of their father. Banishing music and love from her heart, she resolves to live for her children and no one else.

Marc Duval is a man who had fallen as far as he could go. Drowning his pain and grief in alchol, he tries to bury the thought of his dead wife and children. Dragged back to life by the laughter of Sharon's children, he finds himself falling in love with a woman who wants nothing to do with him.

A Christmas kiss starts to break down the walls built around the hearts of these two people. They fall deeper into the music of love. Sharon finds the strength to play again. Marc might actually find the will to live. But there is a secret lurking in Marc's background. One that might destroy everything they have. Struggling with the truth, Marc must decide just how strong his love for Sharon is.

Judy Gill has written a touching story about two people reaching for a second chance at love. It does tug at the heart strings, but doesn't evoke deep emotion. The characters learn to trust, but there is no real sense of urgency or even suspense as to what Marc's secret is. All the characters seem slightly flat. I think this book suffers from being too short of a story. The reader isn't given much time to get to know and develop ties to the characters before the crisis is resolved.

If you have a spare hour or so, Moonlight Man is a book to enjoy.
