From big city high-flyer to little village vet …
Hannah and Daniel were teenage sweethearts, but then Daniel left their sleepy village of Middlefern and his grandfather’s veterinary practice behind for the bright lights of London.
Now, fifteen years later, the prodigal grandson has returned to temporarily take over the village practice with a veterinary qualification and his dog, Sammy, in tow. Daniel is ready for rabbits with tummy aches, guinea pigs who’ve lost their squeak, plenty of cow complaints and a whole lot of memories – both good and bad. But is he ready to see Hannah again?
Of course, a high-flying city vet like Daniel was never planning to stay in Middlefern for good – especially given his history with the place. But could another, even more important, vacancy convince him to change his mind?
First Love Revisited
A delightful story about first love revisited. When Daniel returns to Middlefern, sixteen years after he first left, it is only to clear his grandfather’s house and sell his veterinary practice, but when he bumps into his first love, Hannah, literally. It is clear that things aren’t going to be that easy especially when the whole village is trying to help. Feelings rise, maybe it’s time to be honest and explain his reasons for leaving. A delicious slow-burn romance between two really loveable characters. A super second book, Joanne, thank you.
A wonderful novel of love, friendship and secrets
I really enjoyed this novel from the very first page. The story opens with 2 youngsters, Daniel and Hannah, who are best friends and on the cusp of something more. However Daniel leaves the village where they have both grown up and when he returns 15 years later, he has secrets stopping him from reigniting that flame of love with Hannah. Can the two overcome the secret and betrayal to find new hope together? Highly recommend this novel!
Ideal light entertainment
Inseparable as children, Dan and Hannah became teenage sweethearts until Dan moved to London with his mother and step father. As they part they promised to keep in touch but Daniel immediately cuts all contact with Hannah, leaving her feeling rejected.
Although she planned to attend university, Hannah stayed in Middlefern to support her mother's last years and is now employed as the much loved carer of the village elderly and anyone requiring her assistance.
Fifteen years after leaving, Dan returns to Middlefern to temporarily run his late grandfather’s veterinarian practice. Due to traumas from his childhood and his life in London falling apart, Dan intends to sell the practice and start again somewhere else.
Could such a warm welcome from everyone in the village persuade Dan to stay in Middlefern. Maybe, but first he has to explain to Hannah why he broke his promise to her all those years ago.
A light-hearted and entertaining story about second chances.
