Sunset in Central Park – Sarah Morgan

The bit on the back:

In the chaos of New York, true love can be hard to find, even when it's been right under your nose all along…

Love has never been a priority for garden designer Frankie Cole. After witnessing the fallout of her parents' divorce, she's seen the devastation an overload of emotion can cause. The only man she feels comfortable with is her friend Matt—but that's strictly platonic. If only she found it easier to ignore the way he makes her heart race…

Matt Walker has loved Frankie for years but, sensing how fragile she is beneath her feisty exterior, has always played it cool. But then he uncovers new depths to the girl he's known forever and doesn't want to wait a moment longer. He knows Frankie has secrets and has buried them deep, but can Matt persuade her to trust him with her heart and kiss him under the Manhattan sunset?

My opinion:

Sarah Morgan manages to amaze me every single time! Sunset in Central Park is an amazingly written story by a very talented author, who hooks you with her words!!! This book has it all: A gripping storyline, amazing characters, a wonderful location and a lot of excitment!!!!

My Husband’s Wife – Amanda Prowse

The bit on the back:

Once a week, Rosie Tipcott counts her blessings.
She goes to sit on her favourite bench on the north Devon cliffs, and thanks her lucky stars for her wonderful husband, her mischievous young daughters, and her neat little house by the sea. She vows to dedicate every waking hour to making her family happy.
But then her husband unexpectedly leaves her for another woman and takes the children. Now she must ask the question: what is left in her life? Can Rosie find the strength to rebuild herself? More importantly, does she even want to?

My opinion:

UNPUTDOWNABLE!!! Amanda has a real gift of creating an emotional, heratbreaking, addictive and touching story. I read it in one go and fell in love with Amanda writing once more. She creates these atmospheres full of emotions and manages to make it unique for the characters.
