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?
What does TWG think?
Time to head back to Hope Green as we re-visit Sam in Part 2 of The Vets at Hope Green – Follow Your Heart. The second instalment is published today (16th February) by Ebury Publishing, huge congratulations to Sheila Norton!
Lets just remind ourselves of Part 1 in the series: #Review – The Vets at Hope Green Part 1 by Sheila Norton @NortonSheilaann @EburyPublishing
Poor Sam ended up in a little bit of a pickle with her boyfriend, Adam, in part 1 and I was hopeful that her luck would change with this instalment. However, Sam is STILL having trouble with Adam and her luck doesn’t seem to be changing any time soon.
Once again, it is quite tricky to write a review for a book series because it’s quite tricky to work out what to say without giving anything away. I really enjoyed returning to Hope Green; so much in fact I read the book in an hour and I wasn’t mentally prepared for it to end! Luckily for us, the third instalment should be here in a month!
I loved how Sam’s dilemma highlighted such relatable situations; especially given the fact that it looks a ‘happy’ sort of book. Which it is, don’t get me wrong. It just contains more depth to it that meets the eye, and I really do think a lot of readers will resonate with Sam. I must admit though, one character in particular managed to rub me up the wrong way in this part, too! I wasn’t really surprised that the leopard didn’t change its spots; but you gotta be positive, right?
Another cosy part to The Vets at Hope Green series. Re-visiting our friends in Hope Green with Sheila Norton, is like being cuddled in a big, soft blanket. I can’t wait to see how the storyline pans out in part three!
Thank you Ebury!
