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…

There's a reason I enjoy Sarah Morgan's From Manhattan With Love series. True, it deviates from my usual clean romance with some of its more provocative scenes, but its not at all crazy graphic. What I love is the depth these characters have and the plotline that goes deeper than "small town girl meets handsome billionaire" type stories. Fliss' story in Holiday in the Hamptons spoke of miscommunication, misunderstanding and putting up a wall and a facade to hide the truth from others. It's about love that needs patience and understanding. It's about family, friends and relationships. That latter half of the book, when Seth and Fliss finally talk talk, well, that nearly broke my water dam! Some hard truths for marriage couples for sure. In all, another good story, and this one about one of the toughest girls you'll meet, at least on the outside.

For my clean readers, please note this novel contains minor profanity and multiple intimate scenes.
