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 does TWG think?

Where would we be without our pets? They say that a dog is a ‘man’s best friend’; unless you’re Molly and a dog is ANYONE’S best friend. Well, as long as they know their own name, right? Molly is THE one to go to where relationships are concerned, as long as it isn’t her own. As the modern-day, ‘Dear Deidre’, Molly seems to be able to answer people’s love problems, as well as being able to give relationship advice or crush advice, to both men and women. How ideal would that be? Free love advice! Well, just as long as you don’t put a handsome gentleman in front of her, she will be just fine! Speaking of which…

The other main character in this story is Daniel, a divorce lawyer who’s hard attitude to life runs through him like a stick of rock. He’s either afraid to fall in love, doesn’t know how to or the amount of divorces he has to contend with via his work, has put him off for life. Just how CAN you make a big shot lawyer lower his defences? Surely not with a dog…

The thing about Sarah Morgan’s books is that, with every brand new book she brings out, it’s as though I’m returning home the moment I get stuck into it. Sounds daft really doesn’t it? Sarah Morgan’s books never seem to disappoint, so when I was able to get my hands on this little beauty, I found my spot on the sofa, curled my legs under my body, ignored the outside world and let myself be submerged into yet another, beautiful story.

I LOVE both of the main characters in this story! Don’t get me wrong, both of them have personalities that are the polar opposites of each other, BUT, as a reader and being able to dabble in both of their lives, their antics make for entertaining reading. Along the way we get to see them both make mistakes in their personal lives, and their work lives. However, the only way those mistakes can be rectified is by going out of their comfort zones; by wearing their hearts on their sleeves and communicate their feelings.

‘New York, Actually’ is such a down to earth and modernised book, yet it still manages to create monumental earthquakes with its feisty and rollercoaster storyline. Both of the main characters are incredibly strong and such good fun to read about, even if they don’t seem to see what is right in front of them.

I love, love, LOVE this book and everything it stands for from the front cover, all the way through, and then some. Sarah Morgan brings New York to you in this sassy, relatable and totally brilliant book, whilst creating vivid imagery with her homely and enticing writing style. ‘New York, Actually’ is the perfect book to lose yourself in and forget every single thing around you. I mean, why would you want to look elsewhere when you have a Sarah Morgan novel? Oh, and for your information, I couldn’t put this book down, actually.
