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.
This is such a sweet story filled with emotional highs and lows. I immediately warmed to Jenni, she is a woman who knows what she wants and goes for it. Her relationship with Millie is delightful. Anyone who has loved a pet and revolved their life around them will appreciate this.
Full of doggy charm, Jenni has a grooming salon and is a dog behavioural specialist. Following the death of her father she has a substantial amount of money so this gives her the opportunity to purchase Cherry Tree Farm and expand her business.
There is more to the farm than meets the eye, the ‘treasure’ Jenni discovers under the tree is fascinating and poses lots of questions about who lived there and whether they are the cause of noises/sensations going bump in the night.
Jenni has her fair share of problematic boyfriends/relationships and some of these create the humour in the book. I love the fact Millie is so protective and she certainly has methods of eliminating the men who she considers unsuitable for Jenni!
This is a fine mix of light-hearted romance but significant amounts of blubbing will ensue if you are an animal lover. There are some great characters, I could picture Ross her gay best friend, he is so full of warmth and the hunky Vet Scott is rather delectable. I enjoyed every minute of this, it’s so easy to read and be drawn into the story and I look forward to what comes next from Lilac.
