Holiday in the Hamptons
At first, I thought Holiday in the Hamptons would be a Christmas-themed story, but it actually takes place in the summer.
If you crave warmer weather, it might be the romance novel for you.
Felicity Knight and her twin sister, Harriet, have a dog-walking business together in New York City. When Felicity’s grandmother, who lives in the Hamptons, falls and needs someone to care for her, Felicity goes to help her while masquerading as her twin sister. There, she runs into her ex-husband, and hijinks ensue.
This story was largely just okay. The broader theme of an emotionally scarred woman needing the help of a man to change her way of seeing the world was somewhat unappealing. While reading, I was more interested in Harriet and Felicity’s mutual friend, Matilda, and her misbehaving Doberman, Lulu. The friendship punctuated a quagmire of stale relationship drama with moments of levity.
It might be strange to say, but this romance novel didn’t need its hero. The love from Felicity’s grandmother and sister, and the friendship with Matilda, could have been enough to heal Felicity’s heart.
