The next gloriously uplifting book from the #1 bestselling author of The Mum Who Got Her Life Back.
Suzy Medley is having a bad day…
… when a shabby terrier turns up at her door. Just like Suzy, Scout has been abandoned, although only Suzy has been left with a financial mess and a business in tatters thanks to her ex.
Suzy takes Scout in and her chaotic world changes in unexpected ways: strangers have never been more welcoming and her teenage kids can’t wait to come home to visit.
Then a chance encounter on a windy Hebridean beach makes things more complicated, because Suzy isn’t the only one who needs a friend.
Scout has plenty of love to go round… but does Suzy?
A wonderfully funny and uplifting story about friendship and second chances (and whisky!), perfect for fans of Gill Sims and Jill Mansell
What a gorgeous book this is! I loved it from start to finish. I love any book with dogs in it, but this is also an absolutely captivating and enjoyable story.
Poor Suzy has a lot to deal with, and the dog comes along at just the right time for her. As often happens in life, the perfect dog finds her just as she really needs it, even if she didn’t know it.
The characters are so authentic in this book, and you will find yourself totally immersed in their lives. Ricky has also been through a lot, and is just as much in need of Scout’s charms as Suzy is.
There is much more to this book than romance, which is actually only a small part of the plot. It’s about many types of love: canine, family, community and friends, and it’s a book with so much atmosphere, wonderful characters, and humour, tied up in a gently weaving and totally enthralling plot.
A wonderful feel-good and life-affirming read, I enjoyed it so much, from the first page to the last. Highly recommended.
