My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Solid 4 stars.
Advanced Reader’s Copy. Thank you so much to Random House and the author Judy Blundell for this advanced reader’s copy. It was a delightful surprise in more than one way.
Though set in modern day New York (the tip of Long Island and NYC), the author creates a reality so foreign to the 99% that it might as well be fantasy. This Hampton’s 1% is woven into the daily life of a small shore town, and a wonderful world is created. Added to this are well developed characters, enabling me to completely immerse myself and feel empathy for each character – both “good” and “bad”.
Followers of “high society”, the art community and artists, the Hamptons, and small New England/New York towns will especially enjoy this book.
My only complaint is the cover.
