Holiday in the Hamptons

Sarah Morgan, 1948-

Book - 2017

"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 ideal way to escape her past. Their relationship might have lasted only 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"--

Review by Booklist Review

The latest entry in Morgan's From Manhattan with Love series, following Miracle on 5th Avenue (2016), is the perfect mini break for anyone not lucky enough to make it to the beach this summer. Felicity Fliss Knight and her twin sister, Harriet, have been lucky enough to make it in Manhattan after starting their own dog-walking business, the Bark Rangers. After discovering that her ex-husband, Seth Carlyle, has come back to the city to work in a local veterinary practice, Fliss is determined to avoid him at all costs. When their Hamptons-based grandmother has an accident and asks that one of the twins stay with her while she recovers, Fliss wastes no time in packing her flip-flops. But she's barely arrived when she crosses paths with Seth and, in a moment of desperation, pretends to be her twin. Ten years have done nothing to mend Fliss' broken heart, but she knows deep down that she was right to walk away because she was never good enough for a man like Seth. Morgan turns up the heat and keeps the tension simmering in a delightful second-chance love story. Series readers will enjoy glimpses of characters from other books, but newcomers will be able to dive right in.--Quillen, C. L. Copyright 2017 Booklist

Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

The effects of emotional child abuse are at the heart of this flimsy second-chances love story, the fifth installment in Morgan's From Manhattan with Love contemporary series (after New York, Actually). When Felicity "Fliss" Knight, a rambunctious and emotionally closed-off professional dogwalker, gets a call that her grandmother is in the hospital, she hightails it to the Hamptons to take care of her. Fliss hopes to avoid an awkward encounter with her ex-husband, Seth Carlyle (whom she left after three months of marriage and hasn't seen in 10 years), but winds up practically living next door to him. Seth, a veterinarian, knows Fliss is closed off, but he's determined to finally break down her barriers and get answers he feels are long over- due. Fliss hides her emotions as a defense mechanism stemming from her father's emotional abuse of her as a child, but she's still undeniably attracted to the handsome, patient vet, and her feelings prove difficult to contain. Although initially understandable, readers will tire of Fliss's stoicism; it's not clear what Seth saw in her the first time or why he's interested in a do-over. Agent: Susan Ginsburg, Writers House.

Felicity Knight adores New York City and the successful dog-walking business she runs with her twin sister, Harriet, until her ex-husband, veterinarian Seth Carlyle, whom she hasn't seen in ten years, temporarily fills in at the clinic they use. Fliss refuses to run into him, so when her grandmother calls saying she needs help after her surgery, Fliss loads up the car and heads for the Hamptons-and safety. But Seth lives and practices in the Hamptons, not the city. When Fliss -almost hits a dog that turns out to be Seth's, she impulsively tells him she's sensible Harriet, setting the stage for a comedy of errors that is as hilarious as it is romantic. -VERDICT Sweet, sexy, and funny, this addictive tale exudes seaside charm and canine affection and delightfully keeps its promise of a happy ending. Morgan (New York, Actually) lives near London, England. © Copyright 2017. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
