There was a particular film that came to mind during parts of this book, which this felt slightly reminiscent of, but I will refrain from naming the film, as anyone knows it may then guess certain outcomes of this story and I wouldn't want that.
As far as I'm concerned this book is all about Millie, she is the best character, and although she doesn't speak, she communicates surprisingly well and its amazing at how many men she seems to really dislike. I should possibly mention that Millie is in fact a Westie, and one of the best four legged characters I've read this year.
She is full of character, and is inseparable from her human Jenni. Jenni is dog mad, and hopes to expand her dog grooming business to include dog behaviour training and agility classes, plus a whole lot more. Jenni is also single although there are three very distinct possible men on the horizon, so she hopes one of them may turn into something more.
There is Mark with his parent's dog Randy who is a real handful, Neil the architect who feels a bit slimy, even from the start, and there is locum vet Scott. Of these men Millie attacks one, fawns over another and shows utter indifference to the third.Read more ›
Jenni runs a dog-grooming parlour and with running a business she doesn't have a lot of time for a love life. Even if she did, every man who comes into contact with her gets a disapproving glare or sometimes growl from Jenni's best friend, Millie, the west highland terrier. When Jenni goes to view a property in the hilariously named village of Cow's Bottom she has no intention of buying it, but she falls in love at first sight with the cottage. Then like buses, 3 men come along at once: Sparkless Mark who's nice enough but doesn't give Jenni butterflies in her tummy, Nasty Neil the architect who has designs on Jenni as well as her cottage, and village vet Scott who's perfect apart from the ring on the third finger of his left hand. What's even worse for Jenni is that the only one Millie approves of is Scott. Does Millie know something that Jenni doesn't?
What a fabulous book! I knew from just reading the description that I was going to fall in love with Millie and I wasn't wrong. Lilac Mills has created the most adorable fictional canine character that I have ever come across.Read more ›
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.
