Review of New York, Actually by Sarah Morgan - 5**


Meet Molly
New York’s most famous agony aunt, she considers herself an expert at relationships…as long as they’re other people’s. The only love of her life is her Dalmatian, Valentine.
Meet Daniel
A cynical divorce lawyer, he’s hardwired to think relationships are a bad idea. If you don’t get involved, no-one can get hurt. But then he finds himself borrowing a dog to meet the gorgeous woman he sees running in Central Park every morning…
Molly and Daniel think they know everything there is to know about relationships…until they meet each other that is…


What's not to love? NYC, gorgeous dogs, great characters and truths and deceptions.

I absolutely adored this book and read it in two sittings! I've enjoyed Sarah's New York series and this is the first of a spin-off series focussing on the dog walking business and the people who run it. Nice references to the previous books, but this is easily read as a stand alone.

I really enjoyed the way that Daniel and Molly reacted to bad news/discoveries. They reacted immediately but then went away and thought about it and changed their tunes. All too often in romance books the lead characters fall out and then simmer with anger for weeks/months/years. Human nature usually reconsiders after examining the facts in a sensible way and after talking to others.

What was particularly charming was the way Molly's defences dropped without her realising. When all her friends turned up to support her I was crying!

Can't wait for the next one - and since we've had hints regarding Fliss & Seth, I'm hoping it covers their relationship!!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
