A Cosy Christmas With The Village Vet By Eliza J Scott is a wonderful heart-warming contemporary novel that will swell your heart with love and kindness.
At the heart of the novel is community. It is a community that cares for all its members and looks out for each other. No one is ever left out in the cold. There are always spaces to be found around someone’s table.
The leading characters exude love and kindness. Their easy banter is a pure delight. Add in a couple of dogs and you have the perfect recipe for a delightful tale. The canine characters are as much a part of the story as the humans. We see the unbreakable bonds and the loyalty of man’s best friend.
Loss is keenly felt at Christmas when there are empty places around tables.
There are also characters suffering a different sort of loss – that of broken relationships. We witness the power of words to wound. “Words… the hurt they still had the power to resurrect.” The tongue can be more vicious than any double-edged sword.
This is a beautiful book to read in the run up to Christmas. Snow, frost and Christmas traditions really whet the reader’s appetite. Eliza J Scott paints beautiful pictures with her talented pen. The scenery springs to life.
Verbal volleys warm the reader. There are some absolutely hilarious scenes – who can forget the character whose own false teeth bit him in the bum!
I absolutely adored A Cosy Christmas With The Village Vet. It is a beautiful read to brighten a dark day.
I received a free copy from Rachel’s Random Resources for a blog tour. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
A Cosy Christmas with the Village Vet
It’s the most magical time of the year! Will Brogan and Nick find the happiness they crave so they can celebrate the festive season?
Christmas has always been a special time for Brogan, especially since her move to her grandparents’ smallholding. Set near the picturesque village of Lytell Stangdale in the middle of the North Yorkshire Moors, it’s an idyllic location. But with the loss of her beloved grandparents still raw, she’s struggling to find her festive spirit.
Talked into going to a wedding by her friends, Brogan finds herself sitting next to a rather handsome stranger. Thinking she’ll never seen him again, she dusts off her flirting skills and lets her fun-loving side loose.
Newly single Nick Heuston was dreading going to his friend’s wedding. But a chance encounter with a woman with captivating green and eyes makes him think otherwise. He’s gutted when she disappears without leaving any way for him to contact her.
Telling himself he needs a break from relationships, Nick intends to focus all his attention on his job as a vet at a new practice. It proves easier said than done; he just can’t get Brogan out of his mind.
Meanwhile, Brogan’s been looking forward to starting her new job as a vet nurse at the new local practice.
On their first day at Danskelfe Veterinary Surgery, both are stunned when they come face-t0-face once more – something Nick seems very happy about, but Brogan’s not so sure.
Despite her reluctance, it would seem fate is keen to push them together, and Brogan finds her feelings for Nick growing. As for Nick, the more he gets to know Brogan, the more he finds himself falling for her.
Just when their romance looks ready to bloom, something or someone seems to get in its way.
Will Christmas work its magic? Or are Brogan and Nick destined to be nothing more than a brief encounter?
Why not join Brogan and Nick, together with their canine companions Wilf and Maudie – and all the familiar Life on the Moors characters – for a heartwarming, festive trip to the moors?
