Everyone in Bedford Falls wants to see Robbie Masters settled down and happy, but Robbie knows love comes with a price, and it’s not one he wants to pay. He can’t trust his heart to make a sound investment.
But then he meets self-help goddess Sara Wright. Sara’s quirky humor and sweet wisdom light Robbie’s soul and rekindle his passions, and for the first time in his life he wonders if Happily Ever After isn’t more than a distant dream.

In Silver Moon Sparkling, Kate Perry invites the reader to get to know Robbie Masters better. Robbie, Eleanor’s best friend from Dancing on a Moonbeam Parts 1-3, has always dreamt of meeting the woman of his dreams, settling down and having a family. As he’s gotten older, he’s decided that might not be in the cards for him. Then, he meets Sara Wright.
Sara’s life hasn’t been easy. She’s had to fight for everything she has. Sadly, everything she’s fought so hard for is slowly going down the drain. She terrified of losing her home. Sara’s hoping that selling her self-help business to the right buyer will turn everything around.
When Robbie shows up to help Sara with some landscape maintenance, sparks fly. Both Robbie and Sara are scared to act on their feelings due to their pasts, but they can’t fight their attraction. Soon their realizing that maybe dreams do come true.
Silver Moon Sparkling was a beautifully written novel filled with inspiration. It was also incredibly funny at times. (I may or may not have laughed out loud when a certain rainbow appendage appeared in the story.) I loved how both Sara and Robbie learned that it wasn’t too late for them to find love.
Another thing I really loved was the continuation of Eleanor’s daughter Lily’s story. I enjoyed seeing her figure out life, friendships and boys. The way she reconnected with her grandfather was lovely, as was her relationship with Max. (I think Kate Perry needs to write a contemporary YA romance!)
My only teeny tiny complaint about Silver Moon Sparkling was how quickly Robbie and Sara were telling each other “I love you.” I know that’s a little nitpicky, but I just didn’t find it believable. I needed them to be in a relationship a little bit longer than they were. I also wanted to see more of their relationship.
Silver Moon Sparkling is a sweet contemporary romance. Readers who enjoy stories with mature characters will love this series.
