The Barn on Half Moon Hill by Milly Johnson

Amazon USA Amazon UK
Review by Suze
Cariad has been writing to Franco Mezzaluna for years, only he never replied. He's a famous movie star and has been asked to do some publicity for Winterworld, which is where Cariad happens to work. Cariad has told everyone they know one another, but she isn't sure if he would actually recognize her. She's thrilled when Franco notices her in the audience almost straight away and wants to spend the afternoon with her...
The Barn on Half Moon Hill is a wonderful story and it put a big smile on my face. Cariad is a sweetheart, so she has the exact right name. I loved how Milly Johnson makes it easy to like and get to know her right from the start. The story is both endearing and romantic. Franco has a big secret that he hasn't shared with the world, but he tells Cariad what it is, which is really charming. He's such a big star, but he immediately shows Cariad his real self. She gets to see his vulnerable side because of her letters. They're both lovely and I enjoyed reading their story very much.
The Barn on Half Moon Hill is special, not only because of the story itself, but also because the profits go to the Care for Claire charity. I absolutely love that and recommend you to get this story straight away. It's fantastic to support a great cause and receive something amazing in return.  


  1. I love that the profits from this book go to charity. How amazing!

  2. Franco Mezzaluna is such an evocative name!


  3. I like that Franco is his true self with Cariad.
