Snag the Moon by Michele Fitzpatrick is a charming contemporary romance novel between two unlikely protagonists; Eloise Dewmore and Lyman Forrester. Both are middle-aged and they both work at Happy Meadows Assisted Living, where Eloise is recently hired as a public relations director and Lyman is a physical therapist. When she suffers a stroke and is admitted to the rehab ward of the facility, the friendly Lyman becomes her physical therapist. Aloof and used to being independent, Eloise is not the most cooperative of patients but this does not deter Lyman from cultivating a friendship with her. Things, however, will change drastically when they discover the irregularities committed by the facility’s shady CEO, which has dire consequences on its residents. In order to help, Eloise is forced to confront her painful past and Lyman proves to be a big help.
That the main characters are middle-aged in Michele Fitzpatrick’s light romantic novel Snag the Moon makes it a very endearing read. Well-developed and relatable, it is quite easy to empathize with Eloise and Lyman because both come out as real human beings, warts and all. The dialogue is easy to follow and entertaining, so much so that it sounds natural. And I find it charming that the chapter titles are plucked from the dialogue. The descriptions are also vivid with enough attention to detail. Snag the Moon also has an excellent supporting cast of characters in the residents of Happy Meadows Assisted Living, each of them with their own interesting stories to tell. Highly recommended!
