Moonlight on the Thames by Lauren Westwood

I’m so delighted to be part of the blog tour for this wonderful book. I loved Lauren Westwood’s previous book and was so pleased to review this one. Thanks to Aria Fiction for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the blog tour.


Worlds collide when two strangers meet at Waterloo station. It’s a moment they’ll never forget. Perfect for the fans of Milly Johnson.

Christmas is a joyous time, but not everyone is merry and bright. Nicola is a star at the top of the corporate ladder, but her personal life is a disaster. Her office affair has run its course, and the last thing she wants to think about is Christmas. A night of cancelled trains and festive Christmas carols at Waterloo Station is the last straw… Dmitri loves conducting his pop–up choir during the festive season, meeting people, and spreading joy and cheer around London. But he carries deep secrets from his past that robbed him of his dream to become a concert pianist. Can two lonely hearts and souls be unlocked by music and moonlight and will they discover the healing power of love?

I just adored this book. It was such a pleasure to read.

I liked Nicola as a character once I got to know her. She’s a strong woman, and she’s dealt with some difficult times in her life and tried to build a successful life and career for herself. But she holds something of herself back, until she meets Dimitri.

I loved Dimitri from the start, and as the book progressed I felt for him even more. He’s such an excellent male lead character, he’s got a depth and vulnerability to him.

I really liked the musical aspect to the book. I love classical music, and was delighted when I read in the afterword that the author had compiled a playlist to go with the novel, which I promptly downloaded. This will keep this wonderful book in my mind for even longer.

The imagery is really evocative, and I almost felt as if I was there, in London at Christmastime.

Superb plot, characters and imagery, such a beautifully written book. Highly recommended.

MY RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
