My Review:In the Hamptons, no rules apply, especially in matters of money—and the heart…
Raised in East Hampton, Caroline never thought she’d be one of the “city people” who spent summers and weekends at the beach. But, once her husband’s business takes off, a job stint transplants the couple permanently into Manhattan life—where the phrase When you marry for money, you work for it every day, reflects her neighbors’ lives. And where entitled husbands, like hers, embark on affair after affair with little consequence.
Time for the wives to get even.
When Caroline’s friend Annabelle suggests they experiment as their wayward mates have, Caroline resists at first. That is, until a scroll through an iPad makes her reconsider…and a pact between two friends is made.
The agreement quickly turns serious when Caroline begins to confront the man her husband has become, or perhaps always has been. Will a summer affair give Caroline clarity or make her lose hold on the reins of her life? And, when an old lover returns, is she ready to risk all for a chance at happiness…
So I read this author's last book, also set in the Hamptons . . . the books are not related despite similar titles. While I wasn't in love with her last book, this one was not nearly as good as even that book. The premise was simple - two friends both decide to have summer affairs in the Hamptons and then spend the entire book fretting about getting caught. I was bored and troubled by the indulgence, casual wealth and vapid thoughts of these characters. I would skip this one.
It's Hot in the Hamptons comes out soon on May 21, 2019, and you can purchase HERE. I would instead read this author's other Hamptons' book, It Happens in the Hamptons, or something by Jamie Brenner if you're in the mood for a summer book, especially one set in the Hamptons.
