She’s moved on…

Felicity Knight loves New York. But when she spots her ex-husband in the city, Fliss is desperate to escape!

He’s moved back…

Vet Set Carlyle is back from California to establish his own practice and settle down. When he learns that his ex Fliss still lives close by, that future is looking a whole lot brighter…

Will a perfect escape bring them back together?

With the help of his adorable dog Lulu, and a sprinkling of beachside magic, Seth is determined to make Fliss see he’s never stopped loving her!

I'm not sure how many other ways I can describe a Sarah Morgan novel other than simply superb.  I was hooked from the first to the last page, in the story of Felicity and Seth. 

With this book there is just so much to love. As a huge fan of the author, let me first express my delight at the mention of characters or places from previous of her books that made their way into this one. If you haven't read any others then don't worry they aren't major for the story, but clearly inserted for fans to spot! 

Equally this can easily be read as a standalone story, even as book 5th book in the From Manhattan With Love series, or second in the trilogy featuring the Knight siblings.  

This book centres around Felicity and Seth, who were married incredibly young and haven't seen each other in 10 years. They are cautious around each other, to the extent that Fliss decides a summer in the Hamptons would be preferable to hanging around Manhattan where she believes Seth is now working. 

I loved Fliss's relationship with her twin sister Harriet and also her grandmother. Learning about Felicity's background was very interesting and added a huge amount of depth and complexity to her character. I took to Seth almost instantly, he is a wonderful vet and clear animal lover, while its also clear that he is still interested in his ex-wife. 

The dogs in this book were utterly adorable, I especially was enamoured with Hero, a large doberman who is no where near as scary as he sounds. Hero also led to one of the most drama packed scenes of the book, which led to him being one of my favourite four legged characters of the book. 

Holiday in the Hamptons is a wonderful summery read, with a romance that felt quite a bit different to ones featured previously in this authors works. There was a clear chemistry but also a whole lot of emotional baggage to deal with, which just made the story even more compelling to my mind. 

Thank you so much to Netgalley and HQ for this copy of the book which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
