I could see this story play out as if it were a movie.
Phoebe & Ella inherit a pub in Ireland from their Great Aunt Breda. Brought up by ever traveling hippies, Phoebe is the responsible, sensible sister while Ella is much like their parents. It's her encouragement that gets Phoebe to embrace the thought of heading to Ireland and their windfall.
Some windfall. They arrive to discover a ramshackle, abandoned pub that is going to take more than a simple cleaning to sell.
So, armed with Phoebe's small savings, determination, and some optimism, they tackle the challenge. Oh, and discover they also inherited a skunk named Suki.
They are definitely out of their depth and comfort zone.
They luck into some assistance in the form of the charming, if somewhat annoying at times, and HOT Clooney. A town favorite with many, comes with his own groupies, and the son of their primary competitor. He and Phoebe start off antagonists, but she finds herself grudgingly drawn to him.
Phoebe also discovers she has inherited more than the pub. She also has inherited a family trait that gets her into a few pickles.
Phoebe manages to alienate quite a few. Not always through any fault of her own. Her intentions are good. She also tries to give people the benefit of the doubt. There are quite a few incidents that will have you laughing.
Lots of heart, humor, a dash of drama, and some steam, you'll finish with a smile.
I received a review copy. I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
This book was such fun and reminded me so much of when I used to live in Ireland! I recommend this to anyone who was looking to travel this summer and had to change their plans. Read this book and watch the movie Leap Year and instant vacation!
My review: 4 stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you so much to @laurabarnardauthor!
If you’re looking for a quirky book with a little bit of everything, look no more. Cock & Bull is about two girls that inherit an Irish pub from a distant relative. This is one of those books that you don’t know what is going to happen next, you’re just there for the ride. It was a fun one.
I voluntarily read an early copy.
Cock and Bull was laugh out loud funny and the chemistry between Phoebe and Clooney was steamyyy!
I am always a sucker for the bad boy in the story and Clooney was charming and salty as they come, just the combo I love.
The banter between Phoebe and Clooney was hot and cold, sweet and salty, and super witty.
Phoebe’s Aunt Breda lives in Ireland and passes away leaving her pub Cock and Bull to Phoebe and her sister Ella, who were raised by hippie free spirited parents that travel the world and never settle down.
The girls move from London to Ireland to take over the pub, only to find out its a dump and needs A LOT of TLC and the community isn’t so open and welcome to new comers.
Phoebe tried her best to turn the pub around, while trying hard not to fall for Clooney, while falling for him at the same time. This was such a cute, witty rom com and I highly recommend it.
Thank you @laurabarnardauthor for an ARC!

It was easy to get caught up in the story as Phoebe and Ella try to get the pub in order. I loved watching them be so committed as they struggled through trying fix things up, even though it seemed they could never catch a break. Clooney showing up was a gift and a curse…and poor Phoebe had her hands full trying to fight an attraction that didn’t want to be denied. I wasn’t a huge fan of Clooney most of the time - he added a bit too much angst into things and I didn’t like how he treated Phoebe, not sharing with her what he was feeling and why he didn’t think he could commit. I get that he has some pretty serious issues from his past, but his hot/cold routine was enough to make me crazy. Plus, knowing how good they could be with one another, how sweet and caring Clooney could be, and how supportive Phoebe was, it was tough watching these two fight themselves and deny what their hearts wanted. I did enjoy their banter - there was always a laugh, even when they were having a sweet moment!
The supporting cast of characters were quirky and colorful, and it was fun to see them interact, especially with Phoebe as she discovers her gift and finds herself in the middle of some awkward and downright hysterical situations - like making new friends (not) by interrupting a wedding! Phoebe and Ella’s parents were quite an interesting couple and even though they were very unconventional in so many ways, their ability to help Phoebe understand love was awesome. The townspeople all had different quirks and personalities, and I loved how they ultimately came to see Phoebe as one of their own - even Clooney’s father, who was such a jerk for most of the book!
Cock & Bull was an easy and entertaining read. There was just a touch too much angst for me at times with regards to the romance and I did struggle a bit at times with some of the British and Irish slang, but overall I laughed a lot and was smiling at the happy ending. This is one that should appeal to anyone wanting some good laughs, a bit of an angsty romance, and wants to spend time with a pet skunk!
