PART ONE of a serialised novel – a charming and romantic story about living the simple life and the joy of animals.
Emma Nightingale needs a place to hide away. Pursued by the demons left by her ex-boyfriend, she takes refuge in quiet Crickleford, a sleepy town in Dartmoor, where she can lay low.
Life in Crickleford is quiet and peaceful, but it won’t be for long if people discover the truth about Emma’s past. Not wanting to make too much of a fuss, she ends up lying about why she’s there – she’s looking after some cats, she says – then suddenly the town’s new ‘pet-sitter’ is in high demand!
While looking after an Alsatian, Emma finds all attention is on her, and the handsome young reporter from the local paper takes an interest in her story…
Note: this is part one of a four-part serialised novel. The full length paperback will be available in April 2018
Emma turns up in Dartmoor town Crickleford looking for somewhere to hide. After a mysterious and public split from her famous boyfriend, she wants out of the public eye and to just melt into the background away from the press and people who know her. In Crickleford nobody knows her or her past and that’s just what she wants.
While looking for a job, on top of a mountain of lies to protect herself, she stumbles into becoming the town’s new pet sitter and so begins an adventure she doesn’t envisage when she first moved there. At least until a good looking local reporter knocks on her door wanting to talk to her.
Emma is a great character full of light and there are a lot of laughs that come along with this book. As always the addition of pets are wonderful Sheila has a way of making them a full part of the cast of her books with complete personalities of their own.
The only downside to this book is that it ended and I was just getting fully engrossed in the story.
A huge thank you to Sheila Norton and Ebury for the eARC via NetGalley so that I could read and honestly review this book.
