Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000038_00071]Title: The Moonlight Serenade

Author: Kate Hinderer

Genre: YA Fantasy

Purchase: Amazon

When the opportunity of a lifetime falls into Collette’s lap, she jumps at the chance to intern at Fascination Island and sing on the stage of the Moonlight Serenade. Growing up around the theater, she’s dreamed of making it big since the first time she saw her mother grace the stage. But she first needs to conquer the overwhelming shyness that threatens her at the most inopportune time. And then there is Falcon. With his dark looks and charming personality it’s easy to fall for someone she can never have a future with, and that’s before she learns his secret.

This is the second book in the Fascination Island series. The book is a stand alone with different main characters from the other books in the series. The books do not need to be read in order. The first book is The Emerald Isle.

So, I haven’t read the first book, but the author mentioned in the synopsis it isn’t necessary, and when I started reading I found out it was indeed not necessary. This book was a delight to read. Collette has grown up around the theater, and has always dreamed of making it big. Her biggest problem though? She’s overwhelmingly shy, which isn’t a good quality for someone who wants to make it in the theater world. On top of that, she’s slowly falling for Falcon, a mysterious guy who has a charming personality but keeps so many secrets it’s hard to keep track of them all.

I loved Collette’s personality. She hasn’t got it easy, and she doesn’t give up. I loved her enthusiasm, how she tried to get over her shyness, etcetera. I’m a shy person myself, so I could easily relate to her. I liked Falcon as well, he’s dark and mysterious and quite amazing.

The book was a great, fast-paced read with plenty of magical moments and excellent writing. I’m looking forward to reading more books in this series.
