Holiday in the Hamptons – by Sarah Morgan

Original Cover
My own copy
The blurb:

The perfect summer escape…?

Professional dog-walker Felicity Knight loves everything about New York…until her ex-husband starts working at her local vet clinic. She hasn’t seen Seth Carlyle in ten years, but one glimpse of him – too gorgeous, and still too good for her – and Fliss’s heart hurts like their whirlwind marriage ended yesterday. So when her grandmother in The Hamptons needs help for the summer, it seems the perfect way to escape her past…

Their relationship might only have lasted a few scorching months, but vet Seth knows Fliss – if she’s run away to The Hamptons, it’s because she still feels their connection and it terrifies her. He let her go once before, when he didn’t know any better, but not this summer! With the help of his adorable dog Lulu, and a sprinkling of beachside magic, Seth is determined to make Fliss see that he’s never stopped loving her…

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Back with Sarah Morgan, back with the From Manhattan With Love series, yay!!! This is book five of the series, but I can easily be read as a standalone as well.

This story follows Fliss Knight, who is a professional dog-walker in New York. She runs her dog walking company together with her twin sister Harriet. Their brother Daniel played a really important role in the previous From Manhattan With Love book, go read it, if you haven’t already ;).

Well, in New York she sees her ex-husband Seth Carlyle again after ten years. He is a vet now and Fliss assumes that he works in the city. That’s why she wants to get away as soon as possible. When her grandmother calls for help, she agrees to look after her in the Hamptons, even if she has to lie for it.

Of course they bump into each other again in the Hamptons, because he was actually only helping out in new York. Fliss starts their encounter with a big lie. Seth figures it out pretty fast and we all start the journey of finding out what happened between them ten years ago. It’s full of intense drama, family issues, love and much more. Fliss is scared to commit to a relationship now. Seth knows that his feelings haven’t changed and he wants to spend time with her. He wants to take it slower this time, but it proves to be really hard.

I loved reading about both Fliss and Harriet, because they are really different. I also really loved their grandmother, who added some funny sparks to the story.

The setting of these lovely beaches in the Hamptons is fabulous, Sarah Morgan really knows how to keep you in the story. Her writing is fascinating, engaging, funny, romantic and very special. Reading the scenes between Seth and Fliss was wonderful, because their spark is unique and Sarah Morgan captured it beautifully. There was never a dull moment in this story and the storyline has a great flow.

It was lovely to bump into some familiar characters and catching up with them. And the dogs, as well as some new characters, were cute and sweet.

So here is another fabulous Sarah Morgan book! She is such a talented author, who always finds new and unique storylines and creates a wonderful atmosphere around them. Can’t wait for her next book.
