Kathleen is eighty years old. After a run-in with an intruder, her daughter wants her to move into a residential home. She's not having any of it. What she craves - needs - is adventure. Liza is drowning under the daily stress of family life. The last thing she needs is her mother jetting off on a wild holiday, making Liza dream of a solo break of her own. Martha is having a quarter-life crisis. Unemployed, unloved and uninspired, she just can't get her life together. But she knows something has to change. When Martha sees Kathleen's advert for a driver and companion to take an epic road trip across America, she decides this job might be the answer to her prayers. Travelling with a stranger? No problem. She's not the world's best driver, but it couldn't be worse than living with her parents again. And anyway, how much trouble can one eighty-year-old woman be? As these women embark on the journey of a lifetime, they all discover it's never too late for adventure...
Gayle is a highly successful and motivated business woman, but her success has come at a price - she hasn't spoken to her daughters, Ella and Samantha, for years. But when Gayle has an accident at work, she realises she needs to make amends with her family. And so she invites herself to join Ella and Samantha for their Christmas in the beautiful Scottish Highlands. The sisters are none too pleased that their mother has inserted herself into their Christmas plans. They have each other - and don't need their mother back in their lives. Or so they think... As they embark on their first family Christmas together in years, will the three women learn that sometimes facing up to a few home truths is all you need to heal your heart?
An exciting change of direction by Sarah Morgan has led to a deliciously entertaining and heartfelt read. Sisters Lauren and Jenna find that a life based on a secret can be a very destructive thing, yet love, compassion and honesty are waiting in the background, ready to be called. I’ve always loved Sarah Morgan’s novels, they’ve been beautifully simple and full of romance, now she has added a real depth, creating a world surrounding, yet entirely part of the story. The characters within this family, from teenager Mack to grandmother Nancy have a real energy and feel relatable. This is a standalone read, one that you can properly sink into, become a part of and enjoy. I feel as though Sarah Morgan has kept the best of her previous writing, and added a new, more poignant and expressive dimension. A relationship tale with romance and family drama, How To Keep A Secret is a warming delightful read. Explore our '80+ Books That Deilver a Hug' listicle for more feel-good or uplifting books.
Looking for Christmas magic, romance and sparkle? Then stop right here as ‘Moonlight over Manhattan’ offers all of this and more. Dog walker and exceedingly shy Harriett challenges herself to face her fears, and finds herself in more than one sticky situation during the month of December. Dr Ethan Black agrees to look after exuberant Madi the dog, but he's taken on so much more than he bargained for. Sarah Morgan knows how to capture your heart, and I do love her stories that are brimming with friendship and romance. Characters from previous books step in and out of the pages, and potential new ones are introduced. ‘Moonlight over Manhattan’ gathers you into a warm hug and invites you to settle down, make yourself comfy, and step into its delightfully warm and engaging pages. ~ Liz Robinson A message from Sarah Morgan Dear Reader One of my favorite quotes (and I’ve used it in the front of this book) is from Eleanor Roosevelt, who said ‘do one thing every day that scares you’. That quote is perfect for the heroine of this story. Harriet is a twin, and she is the shy twin. Life wasn’t easy for her growing up and now her confident twin sister has moved out of their apartment, she is forced to make a new life for herself. And it’s hard. She knows she has to push herself out of her comfort zone, and so resolves to do one thing every day that challenges her.Like most people, Harriet is a mixture of strength and vulnerability and I loved watching her grow in confidence and find her own path. As some of you know, I wrote a number of medical romances before writing longer books, and I still can’t resist a sexy doctor. So my hero in this story, Dr. Ethan Black, works in the emergency department (as I did, many years ago before I changed careers and started writing stories while wearing my pajamas.) He is my favorite type of hero – strong, kind, smart and patient. I don’t blame Harriet for falling in love with him (I hope you do too!), but in the end loving Ethan becomes her greatest challenge of all.This is a story about pushing the boundaries. It’s about courage, friendship and of course romance, all against the snowy, sparkly backdrop of New York City. I hope you love it. Sarah xxx
Just one huge loving hug from start to finish. Felicity flees as fast as her heart and mind will let her when she realises her ex-husband is back in town. Seth last saw Felicity ten years ago, he still has feelings for her, does the fact that she has run, mean that she returns them? I just love a Sarah Morgan novel, she delivers every time, with friendship as much at the heart of the story as the romance. With both Felicity and Seth the focus, we are given more of an insight into relationship dance between them, and I cheerfully tutted, raised my eyebrows and encouraged them along the way. While the characters link to previous novels, if this is your first novel by Sarah Morgan, you could quite happily treat yourself to the delightful ‘Holiday in the Hamptons’ and read it as a standalone romantic feast.

Molly and Daniel think they know everything there is to know about relationships...until they meet each other that is...
A spicy, amusing, magical story, just perfect for Christmas, or any time of the year. I do so enjoy a Sarah Morgan romance, you know exactly what you're going to get, yet she manages to make each novel feel fresh and new, while still comforting and warm. This is the third in the ‘From Manhattan with Love’ series, Paige and Frankie are all loved up, yet positive, romantic and lovely Eva still hasn't found the man of her dreams. Eva has been commissioned to spread the Christmas cheer in crime novelist Lucas’s apartment while he is away, however a blizzard (and a Grandmother) are conspiring to throw Lucas and Eva together. I’m a bit of crime novel addict, so Lucas and Eva were a match made in heaven for me. ‘Miracle on 5th Aveneue’ is the perfect blend of a romance, waiting, ready to put a smile in your heart and mind. ~ Liz Robinson
Sarah Morgan has done it again, she has delivered another gorgeously warm (and occasionally steamy) romance. This is part of the ‘From Manhattan With Love’ series, while Paige was the focus in the first, now it’s relationship shy Frankie’s turn. The friendship between the three girls sits in the background while the romance heats up, and gives a lovely stability to the tale. You may know exactly what you are going to get when you open the page, and that is part of the comforting charm, you can just sail away on cloud of romantic fiction. The little one line snippets of thought from each of the girls at the beginning of each chapter highlight their characters and encourage a smile. With a visit to the idyllic Puffin Island you can also catch up with the girls from the previous ‘Puffin Island’ trilogy. With Eva undoubtedly the focus for the next novel, there are a few snippets of information that give a hint of what is to come. ‘Sunset in Central Park’ is a lovely treat of a read, just perfect if you'd like to escape reality for a few hours.
Another gorgeously seductive and satisfying romance from Sarah Morgan, if you are a fan, then ‘Sleepless in Manhattan’ will not disappoint. This is the first in the ‘From Manhattan With Love’ trilogy, take three girls from Puffin Island, set them in Manhattan and a world full of possibilities opens in front of them. Paige is the main character in this tale, her loyal friends Eva and Frankie remain at her side when they lose their jobs, with the help of two lovely men, can they rebuild their lives? Sarah Morgan has perfected the art of spinning you into a deliciously hot and spicy liaison, which is balanced wonderfully within an affectionate friendship tale. This is a generous, warmhearted slice of romance, and I’m looking forward to the next serving in the trilogy. ~ Liz Robinson
With a magical sprinkling of snow and Christmas cheer, this is a warm and enticing romance. Christmas Ever After is the third novel in the ‘Puffin Island’ trilogy, Skylar and Alec have previously been introduced in the series and have had a decidedly rocky start. Alec thinks Skylar is a delicate princess, when in actual fact she is delightfully naughty and nice. Skylar believes that Alec is icy cool and aloof, however is intrigued when she meets his caring side. If you love to escape from the hustle and bustle with a Christmas romance, this really is a treat and can easily be read as a standalone novel. Sarah Morgan has a joyfully effortless writing style with the ability to mix thoughtful emotion, teasing chemistry and flirty fun to create a perfect serving of yuletide delight. ~ Liz Robinson
A delightfully alluring romance, where you know the couple should be together but do they! This is the second in the ‘Puffin Island’ trilogy, this time Brittany and Zachary are the twosome in the spotlight, they had an ill fated romance and short marriage when they were younger, yet when they meet again the sparks still fly. If you've read the first in the series ‘First Time in Forever’ by Sarah Morgan, you know exactly what you are going to get, and you want to be there every step of the way. At the end there is a sneak preview of the last in the trilogy and it promises to deliver another delicious helping of romance. Some Kind of Wonderful is a perfect holiday read, you can drift away on a dreamy cushion of earthy sensuality and captivating chemistry. ~ Liz Robinson
There are times when a deliciously passionate and emotionally satisfying book is called for, ‘First Time in Forever’ answers the invitation and delivers with a delightful flourish. The enticing will they/won’t they discover they are perfect for each other, sits alongside the heartwarming story of Emily and Lizzy discovering themselves and each other. Knowing that this is the first in a trilogy delivers a lovely hug as you say goodbye to Puffin Island, because tantalising suggestions for the following two books have on occasion floated through the pages encouraging you to return. At its heart this is a fabulously modern romance with oodles of flirtation, a stirring of slinky seduction and a charming serving of affection, friendship and family. ~ Liz Robinson Click here to read an exclusive interview with Sarah Morgan about First Time in Forever.
