New York, Actually - Sarah Morgan || Full Review ♥

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…

We all have that one author that when we know there is a new read by them, we know we are going to love it and fall in love all over. Sarah Morgan is that author for me, and the From Manhattan With Love series is just wonderful, a change from the small town books i have adored in the past. New York, Actually is the fourth in the series (ive read all apart from #3) and follows the story of Molly and Daniel.

Molly is working as New Yorks most famous agony aunt, after her whole world collapses, she fled away to New York and now spends her time advising others on their relationships, despite not been able to maintain her own - well, apart from with her one true love Valentine. The relationship between Molly and Valentine is perfect, the way the relationship between a dog and its owner should be - love and a part of the family. 

Daniel spends his day advising people on their relationships too, just in a different way - he is a divorce lawyer. He steers clear of relationships too, until he spots Molly running in the park, every morning with her dog - the solution to engineer a meeting? Borrow a dog, obviously. 

They both know all there is too know about relationships, until they meet each other. However, that just makes it easy, neither can love, neither wants too - so why wouldn't it work? 

Sarah Morgan has a way of creating wonderful characters - i mean who else would be able to give a dog such character that without them the story wouldn't be the same? Exactly. Molly is warm, friendly and caring - she is also anxious and self doubting, she is surrounded by wonderful friends and is the sort of woman you would really want on your team. Daniel is fiercely independent, caring for his family but a killer in the courtroom, he is swoon worthy and well, a man with a German Shepard on his side? Exactly.

With it been part of a series there is nice little nods to the past characters we are all attached too, not so much it over takes the story, but enough to know the world Sarah has created still exists out there and we know the characters are thriving. Sarah describes everything so perfect that you really do feel like you are there.
