Summary

Welcome to your new cottage in the country - complete with grumpy vet, village gossip and a very muddy dog....

City girl Ella wants to take refuge in the country, lick her wounds and work out what she's going to do with the rest of her life. She certainly doesn't want to have a four-legged houseguest or anything to do with village life. Unfortunately, the inhabitants of Wilsgrave have other ideas. 

Settling in to her godmother's house for a few months of R&R, Ella finds herself the reluctant babysitter of a badly behaved Labrador - and her plans of staying mainly indoors scuppered. But as she's forced into wellies and into the village's way of doing things, Ella meets people who make her think again about what she really wants out of life and love, starting with her new furry best friend....

A gorgeously romantic tale set in an idyllic countryside village, from the author of best seller Covent Garden in the Snow. Perfect for fans of Trisha Ashley and Katie Fforde.

Enjoyable

Light- hearted, easy listening and good to drift off to at night. The outcome was pleasurably predictable (just how I like my endings!) and the setting well described and inviting. Well narrated and a pleasant cosy story.

Well worth a listen

If like me you enjoy listening to a tale about an individual , who’s life has taken a twist and escapes to pastures new to gain a view on life this tale is for you.
A tale with a few twists and lots of chuckles this lighthearted listen certainly hit the spot . The narrator brings the characters to life and conversations are believable ( I felt like I was eavesdropping at times) . This is a pleasing addition to my already rather large library and I recommend to any Katie fforde fans though this isn’t set in the Cotswolds. Enjoy your next listen and I am going to have a look for another great listen
