The second book in this delightful series takes place in New York City and is Frankie’s story. Frankie is a garden designer who is, among her closest three friends, the most relationship phobic. She witnessed her father’s cheating and the havoc this played on her family and she is determined to avoid this for her own future. Sadly, she manages not to have ANY romantic relationships and is most comfortable with her friend’s brother, Matt.
Matt, on the other hand, has been totally in love with Frankie for years. He understands her vulnerabilities and her fears but has worked to break this down with a strong friendship. Even his crazy cat likes to hang out with Frankie and given that they live in the same building this is convenient.
SUNSET IN CENTRAL PARK is a totally satisfying story, with a great build-up to the romantic culmination of the romance between Frankie and Matt. I felt like I really knew these characters and I especially liked seeing a strong alpha male like Matt portrayed as vulnerable and capable of being hurt by Frankie because he opened himself up to her. Really well done book with great romance!
