#ThrowbackThursday - Moonlight (Down by the Shore #1) by Evie McGlyn


Today's #ThrowbackThursday takes us back to December 2022 with Evie McGlynn's Moonlight, book one of their Down by the Shore series.

From the Blurb:

I was the most sought-after concert pianist in the world. Now I barely leave my apartment. Injury and addiction have taken their toll, and I can't seem to get my life back on track.

My best friend wants to send me on a month-long vacation to the Moonlight Inn to get ready to play for his wedding. In New Jersey. The place where I almost died. My friends think I should get “hot and heavy” at the Jersey shore, but I just want to be able to perform again.

I didn’t anticipate meeting someone like Sean O’Neil, the owner of Moonlight Inn. He’s down-to-earth and kind, and when I’m with him, I feel unaccountably safe. His quiet encouragement helps me conquer my fears and get back in front of an audience.

As my confidence grows, the world I thought closed to me, opens once more. Word spreads of my return, and people from around the globe are asking me to play for them. At last, I can get back to doing what I love most.

But the luster of touring dulls when a tragedy in Sean’s life prevents him from joining me. Will I have to choose between the career I love and the man who holds my heart?



I swallowed past the lump in my throat and nodded. Sean deftly buttoned my cuffs, then took both my hands in his. He raised them to his lips and kissed each of my knuckles before turning them over to kiss my palms.

“These hands are a miracle. They translate what’s in that beautiful mind of yours to the keyboard, and it’s just breathtaking. I am in awe of you.” He took my face in his hands and kissed me gently. “This is your night. Show them what they’ve been missing.”

I tucked my face into his neck and wrapped my arms around his waist. God, this man. He was warm and solid and steady. I felt so safe in his arms.
