It Happens in the Hamptons

By Holly Peterson

It Happens in the Hamptons: A Novel by [Peterson, Holly]

3 out of 5 stars

When Katie’s new boyfriend offers a family cottage in the Hamptons to her and her son Huck for the summer, she takes a chance and accepts. It will be a big change from the Pacific Northwest and away from the memories of just losing her mother. She loves the little house and the adventure of the coast and the town. She also catches the eye of Luke, an instructor at the beach during the summer for the elite’s children. She too finds herself drawn to him. Aside from any love story, we have the secrets, dirt and scandal of the rich. The country club rich feel that they have ownership of the area. Jason Chase is newer money and he and his family fly in on their private helicopter. The country club rich look down on those people. There is sex and mystery and it makes you guess on who certain people might be.

The heat meter is high on this one. If you like sex in your novels, this one is for you. I usually don’t read books with a lot of sex in them but this was fun. It reminded me of older days when I would sit and read something like Scruples by Judith Krantz in one sitting. The way she describes the Hamptons makes you feel as if you are there. I could smell the ocean breeze. Katie and Huck were a cute team. If you are looking for an escape from reality, this is straight up fun.

I received a copy of this book from William Morrow in exchange for an honest review.
