Description de l’éditeur
Award winning author Lucy Dillon's charming tale of friendships and relationships.
Is Juliet ready to fall in love again?
Juliet's been in hiding. From her family, from her life, but most of all from the fact that Ben's not around anymore.
Her mother Diane has run out of advice. But then she insists Juliet look after her elderly Labrador and it becomes apparent that Coco the dog might actually be the one who can rescue her daughter.
Especially when it leads to her walking dogs for a few other locals too, including a spaniel, Damson, who belongs to a very attractive man...
Before she knows it, Juliet realises she has somehow become the town's unofficial pet-sitter. A job which makes her privy to the lives and secrets of everyone whose animals she's caring for.
But as her first winter alone approaches, she finally begins to wonder if it's time to face up to her own secrets? To start rebuilding her own life? And maybe - just maybe - to fall in love again?
'...witty, heart-warming and a very real tale of loss and redemption' - Stylist
A perfect read for fans of Jojo Moyes and Katie Fforde.
English author Dillon (Lost Dogs and Lonely Hearts) relies heavily on coincidence in her latest, the story of Juliet Falconer, a widow mired in anger and sorrow since her husband Ben's passing 10 months earlier. Juliet continues to live in their unfinished house, reluctant to call the builders for fear of betraying the plans she and her husband had made. As Juliet becomes acquainted with the raucous rock n' roll family next door and their friend, Lorcan Hennessey, who eventually helps Juliet repair her house, she takes on pet-sitting jobs that allow her to return to normalcy and find a romantic connection. Though Juliet's anger is initially off-putting, her transformation back to her likable self makes for a believable transition from grief. Dillon does an excellent job of conveying the depths of her character's loss without letting the story grow tedious. The characters are charming and real, though it's fairly obvious who Juliet will end up falling for.
