I shed more than a few tears laughing and crying. There are several twists in the story that caused that. I won’t give much of this story away. Dog lovers everywhere, run don’t walk to get this one. A pulls-at-your-heart-strings while bringing-a-smile-to-your-face romantic story. Easy to recommend, I loved this debut novel of Lilac Mills. She certainly has a way with words.
There are several men that enter Jenni's life and Millie has something to say (or bark) about them. She does not like Neil (and for good reason as you will find out later in the book) or Mark (he seems alright but lives too far away). Now she does like Scott - the substitute vet, but he has some issues of his own to work through.
I enjoyed the language of this book. That may sound like a strange thing, but it is set in England and while they speak English some of the terminology is different than the English I speak in America. Thank goodness for the dictionary on my Oasis for a few of those words! I also enjoyed the descriptions of the towns and landscape, it sounded very picturesque and a place I wouldn't mind visiting.
There are also ghosts in this book - but not the scary kind. There is the owner of the property that died, Cecilia, and her ghostly efforts to push Jenni towards her future (which she does successfully but that is all I am saying). There is also a dog ghost which seems very real to Jenni.
The story tugged at my heartstrings nearer to the end when Millie is diagnosed with some health issues and the story that ensued after that. I am not ashamed to admit I was teary eyed because it reminded me of what I went through with one of my dogs not quite a year ago.
A very enjoyable story with a little bit of everything within the pages.
Wow, what a read. Ups and downs, twists and turns, laughter and tears...this book had it all! The writing style made for a quick, easy read. The characters were well developed. The story line had a smooth flow.
The story itself truly enveloped the reader. The main character, Jenni Meadows, and her dog, Millie, have a truly loving relationship. The dog comes to her owner's rescue more often then not; even when Jenni is unaware of Millie's intent. Millie's tenacity ends up in a heartbreak, which in turn leads to a heartwarming conclusion.
