I was pleased when she decided to take on the running of the animal sanctuary as I felt it would be a fresh start for her, it certainly brought about a lot of changes in her life — some good and some not so good.

Sadly the Village Vet was a dissapointment. In April 2003, Laura rang to say that Headline were offering me a two book deal.

I began my working life as a small-animal vet. It's been a while since I'd visited Talyton St George, and the return didn't disapoint me! After about half way through you can see how the story is going to play out it is a romance novel after all but I still found it a good lunchtime read, a light-hearted romance to get swept away with. In response her best friend Emma from the vet school requests her to take a break and practice her profession in the English countryside for about six months. However, circumstances make Emma take a short break from the practice and soon Maz life is spinning out of control. But then her car hits a dog, and though the dog is saved thanks to the Otter House vets, her wedding is not. It's a cute read and I have enjoyed all her other books. Promotional Information The fifth book in Cathy Woodman's hugely popular Talyton St George series About the Author Cathy Woodman was a small-animal vet before turning to writing fiction.
The story is set in an animal sanctuary, where there appear to be more people involved in the running of it, than there are animals in residence! Cathy Woodman creates yet another loveable down to earth character in Tessa. George, a new baking business, a horse, chickens and a dog. Obviously I did carry on reading and I'm glad I did because, as always with books by this author, the personal lives of the villagers are so entertaining that I can forgive a little bit of upset and tears over the animals I just have to keep reminding myself that they aren't real! How will Tessa cope with these challenges? She won the Harry Bowling First Novel Award in 2002 and is a member of the Romantic Novelists' Association. She takes a job at a animal rescue center where her former boyfriend works. How will Tessa cope with these challenges? The Village Vet focuses on a new character Tessa Wilde, when we first meet Tessa she is about to get married but after her ex Jack arrives at church pleading with Tessa not to marry Nathan she soon gets cold feet not that she would admit that it is because of Jacks outburst. When they begin to work together at the Animal Rescue centre, however, Tessa begins to wonder whether being rescued by Jack might not be such a bad thing after all. The romance side of the story was good, the tension between Tessa and Jack was so exciting to read but just when I thought I had it all figured out something happened that completely shocked me! Additionally, there are many other characters such as Izzy serving at Otter House, other pet owners, who bring out the best part of the novel.
