I am a huge Sarah Morgan fan. In fact, I like her work so much that I never read her book blurbs, because I know whatever she writes I will enjoy. I liked HOLIDAY IN THE HAMPTONS. However, my expectation from the title was the complete opposite of what the story was actually about. If you were hoping that this was a holiday read, you will be disappointed. However, if you are in the mood for a story about all things related to summer romance, then this is the book for you.
Felicity (Fliss) Knight and her twin sister, Harriet, own a successful dog-walking business in New York City. They grew up in the Big Apple while summering in the Hamptons at their grandmother’s cozy cottage. The sand and the surf provided a safe haven from their belligerent father, and the twins, along with their mother and older brother, relished each and every day of their summer break.
Hamptonite Seth Carlyle is a well-respected and likable veterinarian. Ten years ago, he and Fliss shared a passionate encounter on the beach, which resulted in a Las Vegas wedding and a divorce only a few months later. They both still have strong feelings for each other, and Seth has made it his mission to make Fliss a part of his life once again. Now that Fliss is caring for her grandmother while she recuperates from a fall, Seth’s dreams may come true. However, Fliss’s inability to share her emotions and feelings may prevent a second chance at forever.
This is the fifth book from the author’s FROM MANHATTAN WITH LOVE series, and it can be read as a standalone. Unfortunately, I found the story to be a bit repetitive at times, and it took quite a while for Fliss to come to her senses. Overall, a slightly emotional read with good characterization.
