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.
In Under the Cherry Tree, we meet Jenni Meadows. Jenni has a beloved Westie dog called Millie. She owns a grooming business called Telling Tales and deals in dog behaviour problems.
After her dad died suddenly in a car accident she received compensation money but refused to touch. After some encouragement from her family and friends she decides to follow her dreams and buy Cherry Tree Farm to expand her dog business.
Enter Mark, Neil and Scott. Millie usually doesn’t like men apart from gay best friend Ross, but she seems to take a liking to Scott, making Jenni wonders if she should in fact listen to her dog more often.
We are treated to some vivid descriptions of Cherry Tree Farm and its surroundings, as well as some romance, twists and turns, surprises, laughter and a great supporting cast.
You will not want to put this book down. In general, I am not always keen when an animal is dominating the story. Lilac Mills has put this story together with a lot of thought and interest. I loved how Cecelia, a previous owner, was incorporated into the story in such a heartwarming way.
I rarely cry at books but when a certain thing happens near to the end, I was welling up and just wanted to be there with Jenni and Scott to provide some comfort. Although I called the reveal of Cherry Tree’s latest owner it did add to the essence of the story.
I loved, loved, loved this. I am looking forward to Lilac Mill’s next book ‘And a Sixpence for Luck’.

*I received a free copy of this book, which I voluntarily reviewed
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.
