Holiday in the Hamptons
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 Ha ...more
Just as good as the first time. Five stars. Such a great series ❤
Original review: September 2017
Holiday in the Hamptons is a sweet yet complicated second-chance romance. It is full of complex emotions, a history of family dysfunction, and a lifetime of learned behavior that does not do our fragile heroine any favors. It is also full of a love that never died no matter how much heartbreak was endured. It is the fifth installment and one of my favorites in a fabulous adult contem ...more
"I feel like I’m never going to be able to smile again."
Sadly, this didn't even feel like a Sarah Morgan book and I've finished it feeling completely flat: she just didn't create the magic that she is so capable of. Fliss and Seth h ...more
Here comes the naked truth:
I wasn't feeling it.
I wasn't feeling the romance, attraction or chemistry.
Holiday in the Hamptons had the perfect premise: summer, sunshine and the Hamptons. A gorgeous vet, and a spunky dog walker.
After meeting Fliss in New York, Actually I was really looking forward to reading her story. But Fliss wasn't the easiest to warm up to. She was closed off, and trying her best not to get hurt again, but because of that she didn't allow herself to be open towards a ...more
Fliss and Harriet are identical twins who run a successful dog walking business in Manhattan. They share a cute little apartment, and have a fun care free life. That is until Fliss's ex - Seth - of more than 10 years ago appears in Manhattan. Seth is a vet and Fliss knows that she won't be able to avoid him forever. So when their grand ...more
Comical, sweet, and delightfully charming!
Holiday in the Hamptons is a second-chance romance set in the idyllic seaside community that features Fliss, the energetic, scarred business owner and Seth, the handsome, generous, veterinarian in a story that emphasizes that sometimes even when you've found the one when it comes to love timing is everything.
The prose is light and fluid. The characters are adorably warm and funny, including the saucy grandmother and all the four-legged furry fri ...more
"The perfect summer escape…?"
I've not previously read anything before by this established author, but that wasn't going to stop me. One look at this blurb and it had me requesting on netgalley with no time to waste. This author already has existing books in the 'from Manhattan with love' series but this was to read as a standalone, with the being said now I've had a taster of what this author has to offer I'm definitely interested in reading more.
What did I love?
*** I received this book by the publisher in exchanged for an honest review, thank you so much to HQN Romance for giving me the opportunity too read and review Holiday in the Hamptons! ***
OMGosh this was such a fantastic and utterly amazing second chance romance book that I absolutely and totally love and enjoy so much. Just wow I just can't explain too you on how much I love this ...more
I rarely love second chance romance. When at last they come together , I always feel the regret of years they lost. Same happened here. And that too 10 years!
Fliss and Seth knew each other from childhood. he was her brother’s best friend. Fliss comes from a dysfunctional family as result she is prickly and her self preservation is pretty high. And he was always kind and n ...more
In this case, Felicity (Fliss) Knight is living with her sister, running a successful dog walking business in New York. It is ten years since she last saw her ex-husb ...more
She’d assumed time would have diluted the effect he had on her. Neutralized her feelings. Instead it seemed as if it had concentrated everything.
Felicity “Fliss” Knight is pretty satisfied with her life in New York. Together with her twin, Harriet, they have a very successful dog-walker business that is thriving and life is good. Until her ex-husband suddenly starts working as the new vet at their local vet clinic. Seeing a glimpse of him again brings forth all the hurt and pain she’s kept b...more
I do like a good second chance romance from time to time. This one was interesting, believable and the right amount of angsty. I really appreciated that the charade with the twin impersonation didn't last long and that Seth knew right away. I also felt like the issues in Fliss and Seth's relationship were dealt with, not glossed over - they really got to know each other all over again in a way.
Moving on to the next one ;)
This was a predictable book in that the hero (a vet!) and the setting (the beach!) were so perfect, poor Fliss never stood a chance.
There is a lot of talking - between the heroine and the hero, but also between family members and friends. The talk was all good, but it does not make for lots of suspense ;-)
There were some seriously touching moments.
So while I was not exactly on the edge of my seat while r ...more
I did absolutely love Matilda and Chase's appearance in the book and getting updated on the status of their relationship. But it doesn't bode well for the main characters when the reader feels more invested in peripheral characters ...more
With her father, there was no cause for the anger. It was as if he rose in the morning and bathed in it.
Nothing to tell. And don’t worry, he didn’t see me. Because I dropped to the ground like a Navy SEAL on a secret mission. I didn’t move until I was sure he’d gone. I had to stop a passerby calling 911, which was both annoying and reassuring because usually New Yorkers are too busy doing their own thing to pay much attention to a body on the ground.
We’re not populating Noah’s Ar ...more
Felicity Knight has everything going for her. A successful dog walking business with her twin sister and an apartment they call their own in Manhattan. All is going great until Seth Carlyle shows up in Manhattan working at the vet clinic they use for all of the pets they foster. Fliss automatically goes to see if it is really him after her brother runs into him. Fliss sees him and instead of walking in and saying hello she drops to the gr ...more
I have to say this is my first Sarah Morgan novel and although it is part of a series within another series I enjoyed it as a stand alone. Meet twins Harriet and Fliss that live and work in Manhattan, where they own and run a very successful dog walking business. They have always been very different, well not to ...more
The book picked up around 40%. Fliss didn't have a great childhood and she didn't have a good relationship with her father. She's a twin and she grew up believing she was the bad twin. From the minute Seth and Fliss mee ...more
This was my first book by Sarah Morgan and as such, the first in this series. I had no trouble following along and actually I didn't even remember that it was a series until I started to review the book. In reading the book, I had no idea! Yay!
This was a great beach read, escape story and every entertaining. I loved the bit about the twin sisters, Fliss and Harriet, and how it was hard, if you didn't know them real well, to tell them apart. It reminded me of that "Parent Trap" movie, on ...more
Okay, so Fliss did get on my nerves a bit--her inability to see herself and her relationships as they truly were was aggravating. Her reasons for this were absolutely understandable, which is why I stuck with her, but still...aggravating. I wasn't sure if I wanted to hug her or shake her more. Her HEA, though? Totally earned.
And Seth...Seth. He cooks. He's good with animals. And especially once the fear of (not going to say who here, that would give it away) someone is put into him, he abs ...more
