“Adam, where has this all come from? For God’s sake, I’m not trying to break up with you. I’m trying to tell you I’m pregnant.”
Crikey, but this is a very short story!
I read this while my husband watched a rugby match (I know, the shouting and everything! But I managed it.) I enjoyed the story, but it was so short, I need to read this story in one go, not be tempted by a bit at a time. Maybe it will eventually be released as a boxed set, which would make reading it so much more enjoyable.
Sam is worried about her Nana who having lost her husband some time ago, has since lost her dog Rufus and Sam suspects she is lonely and depressed. Meanwhile back in London Sam is splitting up with her boyfriend and worrying about a stray cat which she worries will never be adopted from the vets where she works. What can Sam do to work out all these issues.
She starts with her own situation, she is pregnant and needs to tell the father of her child, Adam, who doesn’t react well.
Then starts the big changes in Sam’s life and her move to Hope Green.
At Hope Green, Sam’s relationships with Izzie, David, Nana and Joe all develop and life starts to take on normality. For now…
I received an e-ARC of this novel through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review. NetGalley does not allow for paid reviews.
4/5 Stars (What this means…five-stars-applied-carefully)
PART TWO of a heartwarming and inspiring story about living the simple life and the joy of animals. Perfect for fans of Appleby Farm, Ivy Lane and Alfie the Doorstep Cat
Working as the receptionist at her local London vets, Sam dreams of escaping to a quieter life in the country. Spending time with her Nana and her lovely but elderly dog Rufus has sparked something within Sam, and all she wants is to start afresh. But her boyfriend Adam is in London, and something tells her that it won’t be an easy conversation
But then something happens that makes her going-nowhere receptionist job seem much more appealing: she finds a little stray cat called Ebony, in need of love and nurturing back to health. Faced with a dilemma, she must choose between her heart’s desire and the little ball of fluff burrowing her way into Sam’s heart…
Is it possible to have it all?
