A Fab Story
Fliss runs from Manhattan to the Hamptons; her excuse is that her grandmother has had a fall and needs care for a couple of weeks but in actuality she can't face bumping into Seth, the man whose life she ruined when she married him 10 years earlier. Fliss and her siblings have all been affected by their childhood and their bullying father. Fliss has always protected herself by hiding (and certainly never talking about) her emotions; if someone doesn't know they have hurt you, they can't exploit that weakness. Whilst that might work with the bullies of this world, it also shuts out those people who love you. Fliss doesn't expect to find that Seth had only been temporarily in Manhattan and that he is living in the one place she has fled to. She panics and claims to be her twin; whilst Seth very quickly realises that this is not the case, it proves to him that Fliss is not indifferent to him and he embarks on a quest to win her back. Fliss goes on an emotional journey, finding out that her distorted view of herself as worthless, no good and stupid (her father's words) is not how others view her. Recommended read.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.
Witty and adorable!
To my shame this is the first Sarah Morgan novel I have read - but it most certainly won't be the last.
We've all done things when we're young and daft but few of us have got married in haste and 'repented at leisure' as Fliss and Seth did. Toss into the mix two entirely different family backgrounds - one open and loving partner and one closed-up and wary - and things don't work out quite as they thought it would. Now fast forward ten years and meet again .. and you get this compelling and satisfying read. Lots of side interests in this one too! A twin sister, elderly grandmother, interfering sibling, pregnant friend - not to mention the Poker Princesses! I loved the scene with Fliss and writer Matilda where the latter was explaining how she builds characters for her books - Sarah, your secrets are out!
This is a really warm read featuring true-to-life characters and situations in the most wonderful settings but in no way a 'shallow' read - this book has real depth to it. I actually went to sleep leaving the last few pages to read in the morning as I could hardly bear to finish it and leave the Hamptons behind!
I have no hesitation in recommending this novel to readers looking for a warm, fun, compassionate, witty and adorable read with charasmatic characters and fabulous writing. An ideal summer novel.
I received an arc via NetGalley in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
An excellent 2nd book this series
Another great read by Sarah Morgan. I can honestly say I loved this book, I'd been looking forward to finding out more about the characters, Fliss and Harriet, being a twin myself I'm fascinated how others see us. I connected very strongly to Fliss, whereas I've always seen my twin as more Harriet, even with the twist in personality when needed. The slow burn between the two main characters was refreshing and the I'm put of their gran was inspired at times and hilarious at others. For me the flow and narrative of the story was just fine, but then I read for enjoyment and to give an honest review. I was gifted a copy of Holidays in the Hamptons and intend to purchase the audio edition if/when available.
