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.
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…
Molly is a psychologist and writer living what some people call a “double life” who has given up on relationships that don’t include her dog, Valentine. Daniel is a divorce attorney who just thinks relationships are a bad idea, as he sees it everyday, if you get involved you get hurt. Molly and Daniel’s love story is nice to read, not overly romantic or anything, there’s no fireworks and roses but there’s coffee in Central Park and the borrowing of a dog…
New York Actually is a nice book, I really liked it, I didn’t relate to any characters but I don’t think it’s a bad thing, every now and then it’s nice to just read someone else’s story. The story itself… it doesn’t keep you guessing, when things happen you immediately think “oh that’s going to blow up” or “oh that’s not going to be good”, the whole book is very well written and it’s not an emotional story, I didn’t really cry or laugh.
I didn’t particularly dislike anything about the book, it’s really good book, I just didn’t love it, maybe other people will relate to a character or a particular thing about the book and that’s awesome, I just didn’t.
Overall, I really liked this book, I do recommend it, it’s nice and there are dogs in it which… I don’t know if it’s a selling point for most people, it is for me so yeah. Although I will say it didn’t feel like a light read, maybe it was because I was in a time crunch or maybe it’s just not a light read, but that really isn’t a bad thing at all.
