Sunny Sundays at Primrose Hall by Jill Steeples #Review

  I am delighted to be on the tour to celebrate a return to Primrose Hall. Sunny Sundays at Primrose Hall by Jill Steeple was published by Boldwood Books on April 15th.   Primrose Hall is more than Jackson Moody and his fiancée Pia’s home – it’s the heart of the community. The Sunday craft fairs in the renovated stables are a popular draw for the locals and tourists alike, enticed by the beautiful surroundings of Primrose Woods as well as the irresistible goodies on display. But for Sophie Wright they’re a chance to forge a new life and a new business. After leaving behind a turbulent relationship, Sophie is starting again – and romance is the last thing on her mind. Drop dead gorgeous Tom Moody, Lord of the Manor Jackson’s newly-discovered older brother, is loving being a member of the Primrose Hall community. Content to muck in where he can be helpful, he’s just happy to be part of the family. But when tragedy strikes, Pia needs Tom more than he ever expected. And when Tom ne

Chasing Dreams at Wagging Tails Dogs' Home by Sarah Hope #Review WaggingTailsDogsHomeBook2


We are back at the Wagging Tails Dogs' Home for book 2 in the series. Sarah Hope's Chasing Dreams at Wagging Tails Dogs' Home was published by Boldwood Books on 25th October. You can my review of The Wagging Tails Dogs' Home here

After a difficult break-up, Poppy is keen to put the past behind her and what’s better than some relaxing time with her aunt in the picturesque Cornish village of West Par.

But life at her aunt Flora’s Dogs’ Home is anything but relaxing. When a poor little pup is stranded at the gates, Poppy takes them for a check up at the local vet, hoping against hope they'll be fine.

And there she meets Mack: the vet who is so charming and experienced with the dogs, but selfish and – dare she say it – money-grabbing with his clients.

But underneath that cold exterior, she's sure there's more to the story. If only she could convince him to open up. Because without him, the future of Wagging Tails isn't so assured...

 My Thoughts

The story continues with Book 2 and the setting is as lovely as ever.  This time, we meet Poppy and the vet, Mack.  You get to see hoe Poppy settles in, nursing her heartbreak and trying to move on. I thought it was refreshing how Mack appeared to be less than perfect and  at first, Poppy actively dislikes his decision to charge the Dogs' Charity full rate for his work with them. His reasons for being so have to be unpicked carefully. 

    The Dogs' Charity seems to be under threat due to financial difficulties and this causes Poppy's aunt to take some drastic measures. I enjoyed the characters who all work for the charity and there is humour to be found in them, but most of all, the animals who they are caring for. In the background is the festive season so this makes for an entertaining and appropriate read for this time of year. 

In short: Likeable characters and some lovely dogs
