    I added Montauk to my list to read as soon as I caught a glimpse of the beautiful cover! The story inside is just as beautiful. Set in 1938, Montauk tells the story of Beatrice, a middle class girl who married up into higher society. She spends the summer at Montauk Manor while her hus...

    This is a story of it?s not you, it?s me. I mistakenly thought this would be more historical fiction than romance novel. And it?s definitely not. Montauk tells the story of Beatrice, a young woman who has married into money and is struggling to fit in with the high society crowd ...

    Montauk is a debut novel by Nicola Harrison, but you wouldn't know it was her first book by reading it. It's an incredibly well-written and romantic Gatsby-esque novel that I was enthralled by. Even though the story is quite different from The Great Gatsby, it gave me very similar feel...

    I'm between 3.5 and 4 stars. It's 1938, and a large number of New York City's wealthiest residents descend upon Montauk, Long Island to spend the summer in this new East Coast playground. The wives will spend the entire summer there at the luxurious Montauk Manor, a hotel by the sea...

    Thought author, Nicola Harrison did a fine job (on her debut) of bringing the summer of 1938 MONTAUK Manor and the neighboring small village characters to life. The story of Beatrice, her humble beginnings, struggles with her sleaze of a husband and interaction with the obnoxious women...

    Nicola Harrison presents her debut novel, Montauk, nestled on the tip of Long Island. It's the summer of 1938 and we, as readers, step into a time period wrapped in social mores, societal webbings, and male/female designated roles. Not one to be enamored with romance novels, this w...

    Thanks to Netgalley for an arc in exchange for an honest review. HAPPY PUB DAY 3.5 stars Montauk 1938: This was a bit of a slow burn read about a young wife, Beatrice, childless after 5 years of marriage and taking a break from New York City to summer in Montauk. While her di...

    Favorite Quotes: As we drove up the tight and winding road, tree branches reached overhead toward each other like lovers? hands desperate to connect? I?d felt paranoid that everyone already knew about Harry?s philandering. How could they not? Women talked and Harry, appar...

    By now I'm quite sure or hope that many of you have read Montauk, one of the best summer reads for 2019. It is, however, a engrossing tale that surpasses the usual summer fare making it a delight to read any time. Set in the pre-WWII days of New York, it is the story of a woman who mar...

    EXCERPT: Something about the way Harry spoke to me that first night in Montauk gave me hope. We'd been married for five years but the last year or two had been difficult. I'd felt him pull away, distance himself from me, and I'd seen his eyes wander. But that night it was as if he want...

    This debut novel is set in the summer of 1938 in Montauk, Long Island. Beatrice was a great character and it was interesting to see how she reacted to different situations with some of the wealthy wives. She came from a more middle-class background. Her husband was a truly unlik...

    Nicola Harrison delivers a beautifully enriched historical fiction novel with aspects of romance. The story takes place in 1938 on a beautiful island and we all step into a time period wrapped in male/female societal roles and norms. I am always hesitant to read historical novel...
