Emma’s circumstances soon force her to take a break from working at Otter House and the locum that they hire soon becomes a bit too popular with the ladies of Talyton St George and not so popular with the vets. Not only is the relationship between Alex and Maz put under strain but also will the friendship of Maz and Emma stand the strain of what life has in store for them both?
Another lovely read, not challenging but perfect for those times when you want a gentle, heartwarming tale of love and friendship then this is perfect I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
Maz's relationship with Alex is continuing and, much to his parents annoyance, seems to be getting stronger. Maz is fully immersed in her partnership with Emma until Emma seems to lose interest. Then the faecal matter really hit the fan!
I really didn't like Emma in this book, she comes across as a bit of a bitch. I know she has bad news in this book but she's still bitchy. I like how Alex and Emma's relationship is coming on and, since the author used to be a vet, the hassles of being a vet on call and trying to be keep a relationship going are a big story point.
A very light hearted, quick read with some ups and downs and the normal sads and happies. Worth a quick perusal, especially if (like me) you can appreciate the setting of it.
Picking up Must Be Love was like putting on a comfy pair of slippers. I knew all of the characters from the previous book, Trust Me I'm A Vet, I knew how the book had flowed and I looked forward to carrying on the journey with Maz and co. in Talyton St George. Must Be Love picks up a little while after Trust Me I'm A Vet finishes although it's not strictly necessary to read the first book before this one as all is explained sufficiently. Whereas Maz was just finding her feet in the first book, in Must Be Love she's settled in her job and her home life and it was nice to see her continuing life. There were, as you might expect, a lot of hurdles for her to overcome although it was nice that her love life barely wavered throughout as I find it very convenient when an author gets a couple together only to break them up in the next book.
What I like best about this new series, is the way country life is presented. Talyton St. George might well be a fictional village, but it could quite easily be real. I found myself imagining Otter House, imagining all the other shops as well as the Manor where the Fox-Giffords work. As I said in my review of Trust Me, I'm A Vet, everyone is so close-knit in such a small village and it's not the type of closeness you usually find in a Chick Lit novel. The village is like a character in itself, along with Otter House, since most of the action takes place in and around Otter House, which sounds like the most charming vets I've ever heard of!
There are many other characters who work at Otter House as well as the many, many pet owners but it would take me a long time to discuss them all. One thing I will say is it is the most well-rounded cast I've ever come across! Everyone makes their own impact, from the pet owners to the pets themselves and although there are many wider characters, I had no trouble at all keeping up as everyone had their own traits that set them apart. Must Be Love did make me cry, because fictional or not, I had to see any pet pass away or have to be put down and it's to be expected that that will happen throughout the book since it takes place in a vets. Cathy manages to keep the book fairly light-hearted whilst also managing to touch on some more serious issues and I applaud her deftness of touch. I really hope Cathy is working on more books in the series, as it is a series worth reading and as long as Talyton St George lives, there'll always be gossip and stories to fill books with! Hugely recommended.
