The other storyline is Maz and Alex's upcoming nuptials - as I was reading the book I was unsure whether this would end up being a happy ending and I don't want to ruin the story for readers but as has been the case in Maz's life, nothing runs smoothly.
I really enjoyed returning to Otter House Vets and revisiting the characters. The book really is like meeting old friends and I would love to live in Talyton St George, a busy village with a welcoming community. Cathy Woodman has really embraced the villagers and I like that many of the regulars return in this book, Clive and Edie from the pub return in this book and unfortunately they have more heartache. There is again the Village Show and these sound like great events to attend.
This book is set during the autumn and winter months and is the perfect book to curl up with other the dark winter evenings.
The writing style of Woodman's is really easy to read and is like a comfy pair of slippers that I know I can pick up and loose myself in. I am definitely looking forward to Cathy's next book which will be released early in the next year and finding out what the residents of Talyton St George are up to next.
Thank you to the author and the publishers, Arrow Publishing, for sending me the book to review.
