Summary

Juliet's been in hiding. From her family, from her life, but most of all from the fact that Ben's not around anymore. Her mother, Diane, has run out of advice. But then she insists Juliet look after her elderly Labrador, and it becomes apparent that Coco the dog might actually be the one who can rescue her daughter. Especially when it leads to her walking dogs for a few other locals, too, including a spaniel, Damson, who belongs to a very attractive man....

Before she knows it, Juliet realises she has somehow become the town's unofficial pet sitter. A job which makes her privy to the lives and secrets of everyone whose animals she's caring for. But as her first winter alone approaches, she finally begins to wonder if it's time to face up to her own secrets. To start rebuilding her own life. And maybe - just maybe - to fall in love again.

Another brilliant trip to longhampton!

For fans of Lucy Dillon & of life in Longhampton this is a brilliant book. The inclusion of a couple of familiar faces albeit fleeting makes the story all the more cohesive. Highly recommended.

Finished suddenly, left me handing

The story was lovely and it was rather dramatic at the end and then Bang it finished rather suddenly leaving me feeling cheated. Not even a prologue to tie up loose ends...

Enjoyable

Another good read from Lucy Dillon. I found it a little slow to get going, but otherwise I would recommend it.
Another good performance by Lucy Price-Lewis.

Great story BUT

What a great story, I loved it BUT the midlands accent was very distracting !!! Also it ended very hurriedly. At the end !! I hope there is a sequel !!

I can't get enough of Lucy's books I love the imperfections of her characters and get drawn into the stories as if I am there. Fantastic story again 😀

Walking My way back to happiness

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Whilst I did not suffer the same calamities Julliete, the heroine in this story, the well meaning antics of her mother and friends and the situations she found herself in resonated with me. I walked my way back to happiness with my dogs listening to four of Lucy Dillon's books. Lucy Price-Lewis has a lovely reading voice, one which is a pleasure to listen to, and I found myself walking further and further, listening to the story unfold with great enjoyment.

What did you like best about this story?

Whilst it is a romantic story, the path was not straighforward or predictable, something I find important after reading sooo many romances. Lucy Dillon weaves several stories together in a believable and absorbing way. Lucy Price-Lewis gives subtle but differenty defined 'voices' to the characters. As a dog owner, I loved the way Dillon wove in various dogs and their foilbles in to the story.

Have you listened to any of Lucy Price-Lewis’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have loved all the novels I have listened to so far and would recommend them all. However, I do have a sneaky preference for the first one I heard, the Secret of Happy Ever After, but it is really only because it was the first one I listened to.

Depressing

To someone who had a young relative die and who is a dog owner/lover this book was very depressing and seemed never ending.
