Holiday in the Hamptons
The perfect summer escape? Professional dog-walker Felicity Knight loves everything about New York…until her ex-husband starts working at her local vet clinic. She hasn't seen Seth Carlyle in ten years, but one glimpse of him—too gorgeous, and still too good for her—and Fliss's heart hurts like their whirlwind marriage ended yesterday. So when her grandmother in the Hamptons needs help for the summer, it seems the ideal way to escape her past. Their relationship might have lasted only a few scorching months, but vet Seth knows Fliss—if she's run away to the Hamptons, it's because she still feels their connection and it terrifies her. He let her go once before, when he didn't know any better, but not this summer! With the help of his adorable dog, Lulu, and a sprinkling of beachside magic, Seth is determined to make Fliss see that he's never stopped loving her… Sarah Morgan delights with more love and laughter in her acclaimed series From Manhattan with Love, which Publishers Weekly calls "engaging…[a] classic sweep-you-off-your-feet romantic experience."
Sand Witches in the Hamptons
Successful graphic novelist Willow Tate is a Visualizer, able to draw beings from the Otherworld—home to trolls and elves, night mares and bird fish, and many other fantastical beings—and “draw” them into our world. Somehow they all seem to end up in the weird little town of Paumanok Harbor, nestled in the popular Hamptons region of Long I sland. As if Willow didn’t have enough problems coping with all these Otherworld visitors, now she has a stalker, her doom-seer father has a secret, and Paumanok Harbor has Otherworld sand-stealers. Willow has bodyguards but absolutely no idea how to solve any of these problems in time for Halloween, when the local witches hold their annual gathering on the beach—if any beach is left by then. Good thing she has the handsome, loving, local vet Matt to come to her assistance.
Highballs in the Hamptons
When you’re young, single, and naïve enough to believe that pleather is perfectly-acceptable business attire, New York City is one big playground. Natalie Pepper is savvy enough to know landing a job as marketing director at an up-and-coming Internet company was sheer luck. But when she falls for her handsome and charming co-worker, she’s not sure her luck will hold out, and losing the job will mean packing her bags and moving back in with Daddy. Not an attractive option. Thanks to her company’s “no fraternization” policy, the brainchild of her insane supervisor, Natalie must choose between the job and the man of her dreams. Natalie’s impetuous and spirited friend Lulu Rossi has no such choice to make. She knows exactly what she wants and isn’t afraid to go after it at three-hundred miles an hour. It’s just that sometimes the world doesn’t seem to be on the same page. Lulu falls in love hard and fast, and her newest boyfriend is just as smitten. It’s his mother, the less-than-friendly old-money definition of Upper East Side royalty, who needs convincing. In Highballs in the Hamptons, Natalie is forced to decide what is important to her for once and for all. Will it be love or her career? And Lulu must prove her worth to Andrew’s family—or make him see that the only person whose opinion really matters is his. Highballs in the Hamptons is the hilarious second book in Stewart’s Girlfriends of Gotham Series.
ARTFUL MURDER IN THE HAMPTONS
Two-hundred long-forgotten French impressionist masterpieces, stashed away in the attic of a New York City brownstone, and valued at $1.6 billion in the festering Asian art markets. Zach ben Meier, the globally prominent art dealer, learns of their existence after reading the deceased painter’s memoirs in the musty archives of Paris’ Ecole des Beaux-Arts. Ben Meier ostentatiously implants himself in the Hamptons; what better “blind” to steal this quarry of art works. The tendrils of Zach’s pursuits become complicated. “Obstacles” emerge everywhere: on Long Island, in New York City, in Monte Carlo; even on the streets of Paris. He forms a bizarre relationship with Adrielle, a former assassin forced into early retirement by the Mossad because of her cloying savagery. Together they fashion and execute a scheme that degenerates into mutual self-entrapment.
FROM LIFE IN THE HAMPTONS TO A LIFE OF POVERTY IN ARKANSAS
This book consists of 148 significant events in the author’s life.. Perhaps the best way to explain this is to include one event here. It is termed: Sex Education Soon, however, we moved again. When I was about thirteen, we lived on a small farm in south central Arkansas. The farm consisted of about 80 acres of land, 40 of which were in woodland and the other 40 in worn out rocky soil on which cotton had been raised for a number of years One day, my dad asked me to go to a neighbor’s house and get a dozen to fifteen eggs to put under a setting hen. I complied, brought the eggs home and per his instructions put them carefully under the hen that was sitting in a box with straw in it. She did not like it as she pecked at me whenever I tried to put an egg under her. I guess she thought I was trying to steal her eggs. I finally succeeded although she could peck hard and it hurt. About three weeks later, those eggs began to explode. Boom! Then another boom. They were all rotten. Something was wrong. Since it was one of my chores to take care of the chickens, I went to my father and told him those eggs I bought were no good. None of them had hatched! He paused a moment and then said. “Did you ask Mr. Keisler if he had a rooster before you bought those eggs?” Puzzled, I replied, “No, why should I? You said you wanted some eggs, not a rooster.” “Son,” he said, “Come sit down. I think it is time you and I had a little talk.”
Night Mares in the Hamptons
Graphic novelist Willow Tate is a Visualizer, able to draw images of beings from the realm of Faerie, bringing them from their world to ours in the process. After a ten-foot-tall red troll follows her from Manhattan to Paumanok Harbor in the Hamptons, Willow realizes that many of her relatives and their neighbors possess psychic talents-truth- knowing, scrying, weaving wishes, picking lucky numbers, and more. So when magic and mayhem return to Paumanok Harbor, and Willow is called upon to rescue the town, she enlists the local talent. Three magical mares are searching the Long Island village for a missing colt, and their distress is causing sleeping nights, bad tempers, and dangerous brawls among the gifted but peculiar residents. Though the Department of Unexplained Events sends Willow a world-famous horse whisperer, Texan Ty Farraday seems more interested in whispering in her ear than in rescuing the kidnapped colt whose terror only Willy can feel. Even with help, she still has to struggle with snakes, drug dealers, tourists, hidden caves, a mad scientist-and the almost overwhelming distraction of that sexy cowboy...
Life Guards in the Hamptons
Graphic novelist Willow Tate is a Visualizer, able to draw images of beings from the realm of Faerie and possibly to “draw” them from their world to ours in the process. Maybe she shouldn’t have decided to make her latest book about the god from Faerie whom she’d “rescued” when the fire bugs came to her for help. Or maybe she just shouldn’t have given him a part fish/part fowl sidekick. Had the creature shown up in Paumanok Harbor because she’d drawn it, or had she drawn it because it was calling out to her for assistance? Either way, more weird things are happening in the Hamptons: robberies, embezzlement, rare bird sightings, rogue waves, and dolphins keeping the surfers out of the water. And though Willow swears she has nothing to do with any of it, none of the locals really believe her. Except, of course, the hero of her latest book—patterned after the new man in her life, a handsome Harbor veterinarian—happens to be a sea god.... From the Paperback edition.
In the Hamptons Too
Tales of the sometimes rich, sometimes famous, but always quirky residents of one of America’s best-known summer colonies, as told by the editor and publisher of Dan’s Papers, the area’s free weekly newspaper. As the editor and publisher of Dan’s Papers, the area’s popular free newspaper, Dan Rattiner has been living in and covering the Hamptons for over fifty years, and has watched it change from a sleepy backwater of fishing villages and potato farms to a playground for the rich and famous. In this follow-up to his popular book In the Hamptons, Rattiner continues to regale us with tales of the people who live, work, and play in one of America’s best-known summer colonies, ranging from colorful locals like former East Hampton Town Supervisor Richard T. Gilmartin and marine patrol policeman Ralph George, to more well-known figures like Kurt Vonnegut, Betty Friedan, Alger Hiss, and Martha Stewart. Sometimes amused, sometimes appalled, but always observant, Rattiner tells these stories of the Hamptons as only he can tell them: with dry wit, unassuming language, and as keen an awareness of his own quirks and foibles as he is of those of his fellow human beings. “If you pick up the East Hampton Star, you’ll learn the who, what, and where. The why and how are more likely found in the pages of Dan’s Papers … If you want to understand the crazy quilt of art, sand, money, farmland, literature, golf clubs, divorces, sea spray, and the area’s remarkable blend of ego, generosity, and dedication to historic preservation, read Dan’s book, In the Hamptons, and its sequel, In the Hamptons Too, which you hold in your hands.” — from the Foreword by Alec Baldwin “Nothing and no one escapes the roving eye of Dan. Here they all are: the old guard with their stately homes; the Bonackers, locals whose farms, shops, and small country roads are disappearing with each passing season; and the successive wave of newcomers, the artists, writers, and weary city folk yearning for the sea. And of course here are the seekers of the Scene, the newly rich and restless, demented with the mania of owning things. Not a particle of this passing parade is less than fascinating to Dan, who serves it up in prose that is simple and direct, yet subtly inflected with his signature combination of whimsy, wryness, and delight. A wonderful read.” — Mercedes Ruehl, award-winning actress and area resident “…Entertaining beach read In the Hamptons Too collects Dan Rattiner’s folksy anecdotes about encounters with the celebrities, farmers, and fishermen of Long Island’s gilded South Fork.” — National Geographic Traveler “…an insightful look at the 20th century luminaries with whom he crossed paths on the East End, all in their twilight years. In the Hamptons Too offers a lively recounting of the Hamptons’ growth over time, as well.” — AntonNews.com “For the fortunate and fancy, Memorial Day weekend means the Hamptons. Those of us without beach houses can read about such folks in Dan Rattiner’s In the Hamptons Too … here Rattiner intersperses bits of memoir with tales of regular locals as well as gossipy recollections.” — Tablet Magazine “…tells colorful stories from the exclusive summer retreat.” — Hamptons.com “Rattiner authored In the Hamptons and In the Hamptons Too to shed light on the town’s natives and its history.” — Sacramento Book Review “If there was an honorary mayor of the Hamptons it would have to be Dan Rattiner … a raconteur with a wicked sense of humor and an eye for detail.” — Long Island History Journal Praise for In the Hamptons “Mr. Rattiner pays tribute to the local figures, famous and otherwise, who have weaved themselves into his personal mythology over the last fifty years. Each portrait is written in unassuming language, with emotional punch, telling detail, and impressive recall … To find as many memorable characters gathered between two covers, you’d have to look back to Joseph Mitchell’s Up in the Old Hotel.” — New York Times “Rattiner, longtime publisher of the locally beloved weekly newspaper Dan’s Papers, provides a beach-chair view of New York’s storied swath of spot-lit sand in his new memoir … as refreshing as a dip in the ocean at Main Beach … His charming vignettes about the area’s residents and guests mostly reach deep into the archives.” — USA Today “A great read! Rattiner has done a terrific job with Dan’s Papers, and his book, In the Hamptons, is as colorful and engrossing as you would expect. He describes the coming-of-age of the Hamptons with insight and affection.” — Donald J. Trump “A long love poem to the area and the extraordinary people who have occupied and, more often than not, helped to preserve its character … If I write here that I cannot imagine a chronicle more inclusive and revealing, fascinating and objective, yet for the greater part affectionate, I am not piling it on too thick. This book is damn good work.” — Edward Albee “An intrepid guide to native life in the fabled Long Island utopia offers a memoir of a half century spent tracking its inhabitants as proprietor of the Hamptons’ newspaper of record … redolent of saltwater and printers’ ink—perfectly suited for comfortable days at the beach.” — Kirkus Reviews “Rattiner knows his territory and shares a collection of charming early memories of the people among whom he lived and worked … such as the lovely daughter of Harrison Tweed III, Babette; the drinkers at Jungle Pete’s, tightlipped about their dead crony Jackson Pollock; artist Balcomb Greene; the sun-bathing lady proprietors of the Memory Motel; reclusive John Steinbeck.” — Publishers Weekly “A folksy and often irreverent take on all points east of Riverhead. Some of Rattiner’s East End exploits—from an ill-fated midnight rendezvous with an heiress to his temporary banishment by legendary barman Bobby Van—are chronicled in this book. “Rattiner [finds] his way to the beach most every day, past the area cordoned off for the ‘saber-tooth plovers,’ to face the surf and type on his Dell laptop. The pristine sand, the sting of salt, the feeling that you are on the cusp of the world—that never changes.” — Newsday “Rattiner’s tales have the flavor of oral history, the passing along of stories from friend to friend—the time Rattiner shrugged off a chance to interview a young Richard Nixon, the day de Kooning toppled from his stool, that softball game where Bill ‘Bubba’ Clinton umpired with a silly grin. In these narratives, the evidence of a life well lived on a well-carved shore, Rattiner bottles the spirit of a rural enclave turned glamorous destination.” — The Hampton Sheet “Now, bookshelves and beach bags alike must make room for Dan Rattiner’s In the Hamptons, which is rich in both local anthropology and easy reading. This shouldn’t come as a surprise. The author is, after all, the Dan of Dan’s Papers, that ubiquitous, fine art covered, puckishly written, free, weekly, Truthiness and Advertising-filled newspaper-slash magazine you see blooming like flats of pansies wherever trades are plied on either Fork.” — East Hampton Star “Whether Rattiner is writing about well-known people or local notables, he presents his material in entertaining fashion, holding the readers’ interest. His unusual vantage point enables him to trace a half-century of changes ‘In the Hamptons.’” — Jewish Journal “Dan Rattiner has been chronicling the people and events of the Hamptons for as long as I’ve been going there (since the sixties). If anyone wanted some insight into what made this area such an interesting place, all they’d need was a copy of In the Hamptons. It’s as close to rubbing elbows as you can get. Enjoy!” — Billy Joel “If a guy says it happened in the Hamptons, and Dan Rattiner doesn’t know about it, it didn’t. Welcome to the high stool at the bar in the Memory Motel.” — Tom Wolfe “Dan Rattiner, a first-rate observer of life, has been observing the life of the Hamptons for nearly fifty years. In the Hamptons, the result of all that clear-eyed observation, gives us every facet of the place—the strange and ridiculous, the artistic, the funny, the lovable and beautiful. Fifty years from now when people ask, ‘What were the Hamptons?’ they will need only to pick up this rich, sparkling book.” — Roger Rosenblatt, author of Lapham Rising
Trust Me I m Lying
Fans of Ally Carter's Heist Society novels will love this teen mystery/thriller with sarcastic wit, a hint of romance, and Ocean’s Eleven–inspired action. Julep Dupree tells lies. A lot of them. She’s a con artist, a master of disguise, and a sophomore at Chicago’s swanky St. Agatha High, where her father, an old-school grifter with a weakness for the ponies, sends her to so she can learn to mingle with the upper crust. For extra spending money Julep doesn’t rely on her dad—she runs petty scams for her classmates while dodging the dean of students and maintaining an A+ (okay, A-) average. But when she comes home one day to a ransacked apartment and her father gone, Julep’s carefully laid plans for an expenses-paid golden ticket to Yale start to unravel. Even with help from St. Agatha’s resident Prince Charming, Tyler Richland, and her loyal hacker sidekick, Sam, Julep struggles to trace her dad’s trail of clues through a maze of creepy stalkers, hit attempts, family secrets, and worse, the threat of foster care. With everything she has at stake, Julep’s in way over her head . . . but that’s not going to stop her from using every trick in the book to find her dad before his mark finds her. Because that would be criminal. “A sexy love triangle and madcap mystery . . . I loved this book.” —Jennifer Echols, author of Dirty Little Secret One of TeenVogue's 15 Most Exciting YA Books of 2014 One of PopCrush's 10 Most Anticipated YA Books "Julep isn't just another high schooler beset by the usual drama of boys and academia.

Determined, she delves into the underbelly of Chicago to find him (bringing a bunch of fresh plot lines and unexpected twists along the way)."--teenVogue.com "Summer creates a standout character in Julep.

A memorable debut; here's hoping for a lot more from Summer."—Kirkus Reviews “Entertaining.”—Publishers Weekly “Well-paced, well-plotted.”—The Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books From the Hardcover edition.
