Lovehampton by Sherri Rifkin
So, basically all I know about The Hamptons is what I see on Ina Garten's cooking show on the Food Network and that it's, you know, pretty and stuff.
This novel throws the lid right off of The Hamptons and gets right to the dishy center!
Rifkin (who has written for Bravo, which sold me immediately) has penned a funny, dishy, "inside look" romance novel of "Miller", who spends a summer as part of a house share in the Hamptons with a number of strangers. Party after party, summer romance(s), a business in the city, gossip, fast cars and a transformation made for television pack this novel, which reads so quickly, and is perfect for the beach, or for when you WISH you were on the beach.
I mean, just look at that cover, right? ;-)
This breezy novel was exactly what I needed exactly when I needed it - an escape to an adult playground on the beach, a story that doesn't take itself too seriously, and fast, snappy writing. Be sure to throw this one in your beach tote...
