True love can be hard to find, even when. It’s been right under your nose all along…

After witnessing the fallout of her parent’s divorce, love has never been a priority for garden designer Frankie Fisher. The only man in her life 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, has always played it cool. Until he uncovers new depths to the girl he’s known forever, and doesn’t want to wait a moment longer.

Matt knows Frankie has secrets and has buried them deep, but can he persuade her to kiss him under the Manhattan sunset?

What a beautiful story and another masterpiece from the queen of the romantic trilogy. I can't work out whether I liked Frankie and Matt's story more, or the subtle link ins to Puffin Island, that led to me being able to catch up with various characters from the Puffin Island trilogy. 

But as much as its great to catch up with old characters, learning about a whole new romance is always great fun, and I have devoured reading this book. Frankie is the sort of person who thinks she is bad at love, not a fan of sex and generally quite inexperienced, but if I'd had her childhood, I would probably be the same way. She is scared to trust men, and doesn't give her heart to anyone easily, but she has secret feeling for her best friend's brother. 

What was apparent in even the first book of this of this wonderful series, is that Matt clearly has feelings for Frankie, but knowing her as well as he does, he knows if anything was to happen it has to be taken slowly. 

The scenes between Matt and Frankie were initially loaded with double entendre and some fantastic tension, that I could feel the unspoken attraction just jumping off the pages. And when the inevitable happens, the tenderness of the first time, and how Matt treats her is so good to see. 

It was of course great to catch up with Frankie's best friends Eva and Paige, and we also get treated to a storyline involving Matt's co-worker Roxy who is brave and quite remarkable. There is a lot going on in this brilliant book, and at no point was I anything other than enchanted with the storytelling. 

As a huge fan of romance books,  I am always astounded when someone tells me they haven't discovered Sarah Morgan yet, and I urge you, if that is you,  to rectify that as soon as possible, as once you read one, you will be hooked. 

With a mix of great romantic gestures, a fitting first date, some artistic flower arrangements, roof top terrace gardens, Central Park, and even a cameo by Puffin Island, this is another truly stupendous story by this talented author. 

Thank you so much to Cara Frances at MIRA & Netgalley  for this review copy. This was my honest opinion.
